Submitted by Dr. Fasching on Wed 01/02/2019 - 17:10

If part of your resolution for 2019 involves looking your best, there are multiple aesthetic procedures for you to consider to reach your goal. Whether you are looking to improve body contours, enhance facial beauty, or start a treatment plan to age gracefully, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Fasching, offers optimal solutions for your cosmetic needs.

These resolutions may include surgical or non-surgical procedures which offer the best results in a safe and stress-free environment.

Surgical or Non-Surgical

Dr. Fasching can help you plan your cosmetic treatments for next year. When prioritizing surgical or non-surgical options, it may be wise to seek his professional advice to achieve your desired results and plan your budget. With the advancements of aesthetic medicine and the trending of non-surgical treatments, minimally-invasive procedures are available until you are ready for the more permanent results which come with surgery.

However, you may need surgical help immediately with a plan to utilize our non-surgical procedures to complement or continue your surgical results. Dr. Fasching will discuss these options in detail so you may devise a plan to keep you looking great now and for the foreseeable future.

Your Face

Because the effects of aging will eventually catch us all, cosmetic procedures designed to improve facial contours and skin health are popular with women and men who are serious about their appearance. These include:


Dr. Fasching offers three surgical techniques to improve facial contours and smooth skin texture. These include the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) lift to tighten and correct underlying tissue; the subperiosteal lift which utilizes endoscopic technology to lift soft facial tissue vertically; and the deep plane facelift which lifts muscles, fat, and skin on a continuous section.

Although the SMAS technique is the most popular, each facelift option is available to ensure a customized approach for your unique facial structure. Results include taking a decade off your face without changing your natural appearance. You will regain your youthful beauty and improve your overall outlook.

Forehead Lift

Also known as a brow lift, a forehead lift is a surgical procedure which restores the area above the eyes to a refreshed, youthful appearance. This procedure resolves drooping brows and improves the furrows and lines which can make you seem tired, sad, or angry.

Although a brow lift does not stop the aging process, it will minimize the effects of aging for several years to come. After some time, you may wish to repeat the procedure or use injectables like Botox to continue the results. Other surgeries done concurrently with a forehead lift are rhinoplasty and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift).

Nose Job

The nose is the centerpiece of your face. It goes unnoticed unless there are cosmetic issues which need correction like a nose too large or too small, a misshapen nose, humped nose, flared nostrils, or upturned tip.

Rhinoplasty (nose job) improves nose contours and overall appearance to complement and bring balance to your facial appearance. Results also include improving nasal function by opening its airflow and improving your breathing.

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a procedure designed to improve fat bulges in the upper and lower eyelids. It can correct puffy bags below the eyes and droopy lids above them. These consequences of age make the patient look tired and may impede their vision. Results are long-lasting and make our patients look younger, refreshed and alert.


The most common aesthetic procedure globally, Botox offers relief from horizontal lines on the forehead and those crow’s feet about the eyes. This proven injectable utilizes the purified protein, botulinum bacterium to halt muscle movement caused by expressions to soften wrinkles and fine lines. Results last up to four months and treatments can be repeated liberally.


This hyaluronic acid dermal filler is a fantastic injectable which fills facial voids, softens wrinkles, lines, and folds, to provide subtle anti-aging remedies for a youthful, smoother complexion.

Your Body

Body outlines are important to women and men who wish to look fit and attractive. Women who have children often need body contouring procedures to regain what pregnancy and breastfeeding took away. Aging also plays an important role in the body’s contour when underlying tissue does not respond to diet and exercise like it once did.

Body parts which seem to be the most concerning include the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. Dr. Fasching offers expertise in body contouring to make sure you regain and maintain the sculpted body of your youth. Procedure includes:


Liposuction is one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world. It has been around for almost 40 years and has multiple techniques including the tumescent liposuction and the ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL).

Liposuction is also a common procedure done concurrently with other aesthetic surgeries like breast lift, tummy tuck, and thigh lift.

Breast Surgery

There is no area on a woman’s body more important to her femininity than her breasts. Unfortunately, age, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and nursing can wreak havoc to their firmness and elevation. Dr. Fashing offers breast augmentation, breast lift surgery, and breast reduction to restore youthful, firm and perky breasts.

A breast augmentation utilizes breast implants to increase breast size, firmness, and improve breast contours. With a wide selection of implants available, and the technology of computer imaging, our patients can anticipate their results accurately when planning their surgery.

A breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to elevate breast location and turn the nipples upward. These contours are consistent with youth and provide an appealing breast presence. It is often done concurrently with breast augmentation surgery to ensure the best results possible.

Breast reduction surgery reduces oversized breasts to create a balance between the breasts and the rest of a woman’s body. This surgery often leads to a healthier, more comfortable lifestyle which makes activities like working out more enjoyable. It may also offer relief to neck and back pain, bra strap irritation, and make shopping for clothes easier and more enjoyable.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is a surgical procedure which strengthens the abdominal wall and removes excess skin and fat. This procedure creates a tighter abdominal contour, with a sleeker tummy often associated with a fit and healthy body. Although recovery is extensive, this procedure is incredible for women who have had multiple pregnancies.

Mommy Makeover

This customized procedure combines multiple aesthetic procedures to restore youthful contours for women who have had children. A mommy makeover often combines breast surgery with abdominoplasty but may also include other procedure like liposuction, facelift, or a thigh lift.

Skin Care

Our body’s largest organ, the skin, is vital in protecting underlying tissues and organs from environmental factors like the sun, wind, and pollution. The skin is also important in retaining our overall beauty. These factors are why skin care and skin health are crucial to ensure we look our best at all times.

Proper skin care involves a dedicated routine which utilizes various products and treatments. These include:


HydraFacial is a breakthrough technology designed to remove blemishes and dead skin cells while exposing new skin to moisturizing, hydrating and cleansing ingredients. This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure offers optimal results immediately with no downtime or discomfort.

The process involves a series of Hydropeel tips with peeling edges used for exfoliation. The tip designs also allow for the removal of blemishes and impurities while hydrating the skin with antioxidants.

SkinCeuticals and Neocutis
