Plastic Surgery Procedures Minneapolis

We hope you enjoy our website. It has been developed to help inform you about the nature of cosmetic and plastic surgery.

Today, cosmetic surgery is for people from all walks of life who want to look better and feel better. Today’s advanced techniques and proven procedures are more effective and long lasting than ever before.

This procedure section contains information on a variety of plastic surgery procedures I perform. This site has been developed to help you understand what cosmetic surgery can do for you. A strong emphasis has been placed on before and after photographs of patients I have treated. The essence of a plastic surgeon’s work can only be judged by seeing his or her results. These patients have given permission for the use of their photos on the web. Many more patients have allowed me to show their photographs one on one, to perspective patients during an office consultation.

The procedure listing includes the most commonly performed procedures. Please call our office for information on procedures not listed here.

An important feature of this website is our link to the American Society of Plastic Surgery. This is the most respected source of information on cosmetic and plastic surgery. At the bottom of each procedure page there is a blue “click here” icon, which will link you directly to more detailed information on the procedure you are interested in.

Face Procedures:


  • Eyelid surgery can remove the excess fat and drooping skin of the upper eyelids, minimize bags under the eyes, and tighten lower eyelid skin. The result is a more youthful and rested appearance.

Chin Augmentation

  • The contour of the chin, the nasal profile, and the angularity of the jawline all exert an effect on facial beauty. For example, a strong nose will accentuate a weak chin. A chin implant can restore facial harmony and give the entire profile a more pleasing balance.

Cleft Lip Repair

  • Anticipating the birth of a child is an exciting event. The child who is so eagerly awaited is not visualized as a child with a defect. To the parents, the birth of a child with a cleft can seem overwhelming. The mother of a child with a significant cleft lip deformity can feel a sense of despair upon the birth of the child, which is compounded by the inevitable initial feeding difficulties. The surgeons’ role at the initial consultation is to provide reassurance to the family.

Face Lift

  • A face lift cannot stop the aging process. What a facelift does best, is to simply set back the clock. A facelift can improve the deep cheek folds, jowls and loose, sagging skin around the neck that comes with age.

Lip Augmentation

  • Pretty, full lips convey a look of youth and sensuality. Not everyone is born with full lips, and those who are often find their youthful lips lose their fullness with time. Collagen and fat injection are the most reliable procedures to restore the fullness to a woman’s lips.


  • Otoplasty (ear surgery) is a procedure which can reshape the ears, reduce their size, position them closer to the head, or make them more symmetrical.

Breast Augmentation
