LASER ASSISTED FACELIFTING CONTINUES TO OFFER DISTINCT ADVANTAGES OVER TRADITIONAL FACELIFTS.
DR. GENTILE EXPLAINS WHY IT IS THE BEST FACELIFT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE

Nearly four years ago Laser Assisted Face & Neck Lifting or Smartlifting was introduced by Dr. Gentile to the Plastic Surgery Community as a new option for facial & neck rejuvenation. As thousands of these lifts have been performed by Dr. Gentile and other Plastic Surgeons he has trained in the USA and abroad he is reporting the distinct advantages Smartlifting? offers compared to conventional facelifts. Traditional face and neck lifting is performed by first separating the facial and neck skin from the deeper layers of facial musculature and adjacent tissues. The separation of the skin is usually performed with surgical instruments such as scissors or a scalpel. Dr. Gentile believes that the initial dissection with a SmartLaser offers distinct advantages over conventional techniques. read more

Ohio teen plastic surgeryTypically teens or younger children will present for reshaping of their noses or ears. They may also request chin implants, treatment for acne or acne scarring or plastic surgery for inherited facial features. We typically see many teens and young adults for Rhinoplasty.

Featured Procedure: Rhinoplasty Surgery

Rhinoplasty is the technical term for a popular plastic surgery procedure, also referred to as the "nose job". Many people elect to undergo a rhinoplasty to decrease the nose's prominence on their face, or to improve its function. There are many components of the nose that can be changed, including its length, width, shape, height, and the size and shape of the nostrils. Dr. Gentile creates facial harmony among his rhinoplasty patients by surgically altering the nose to balance all the features of the face.
