Cosmetic Enhancements

Undergoing cosmetic enhancements can be a great resource to help you feel like the best version of yourself. Cosmetic, injectable and laser treatments can be a helpful option in smoothing and rejuvenating the skin to provide a more youthful and radiant appearance. And cosmetic plastic surgery can be a great option to enhance features and parts of the face and body.

If you're thinking about improving your appearance, there are two options to consider: would you prefer approaching this surgically (body contouring, facelift, nose job, etc.) or non-surgically (injectables, skin resurfacing, etc.)? Our team of experienced cosmetic dermatologists and plastic surgeons will recommend the best options for your specific needs and preferences. We always strive to make sure you're comfortable with your decision and fully informed every step of the way. You can trust us to provide you with the highest quality care possible.

Surgical cosmetic procedures

We understand that making the decision to undergo surgery to change your appearance can be a big step. That's why we take a thoughtful approach. Our team will always listen to your wants and work with you to create a personalized plan that will help you reach your desired cosmetic goals. We offer a wide range of surgical options to meet your needs.

Eye + eyelid lift (blepharoplasty)

An eye lift (blepharoplasty) is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates saggy, puffy or tired-looking eyes. 

Face lift (rhytidectomy)

When you want a younger and fresher appearance, a face lift or rhytidectomy, may be the best option for you. This procedure removes fat and tightens the skin and muscles on your face. Frequently, we perform a neck lift at the same time for a picture-perfect final look.

Neck lift (platysmaplasty)

A neck lift, also called a platysmaplasty, helps to remove a “turkey neck” caused by excess fat beneath the chin and it also tightens loose skin in the neck. This procedure is commonly done at the same time as a face lift. 

Nose revision (rhinoplasty)

If you would like to change the shape of your nose to improve your appearance, remove a bump or improve breathing, then a nose job or rhinoplasty might be the right choice for you. 

Cheek implants

We create a fuller, softer look with cheek implants or check augmentation for people with sunken or thinned cheeks who want a more rejuvenated look. These are placed on the cheekbones to enhance your look. 

Chin augmentation (genioplasty)

Undergoing a surgical enhancement can add to or remove the projection of your chin to balance your facial features.

Ear surgery (otoplasty)

If you want to change the size, position or how far your ears stick out from your head, you may consider an ear surgery called otoplasty.

How to get started

Helpful Tips

What are your cosmetic goals? 

If you are leaning towards injectables and skin resurfacing our board-certified dermatologists are here to help you. If you wish to change the shape of your nose or would like a face lift, then our board-certified plastic surgeons will be happy to guide you through the surgical options. 

How do I schedule a consultation? 

Once you select a doctor, it's time for a consultation. Consultations are a great way to learn about different ways to achieve your desired results and to make sure the doctor is the right fit for your goals.

What happens during a consultation?

We'll discuss your goals and share options to help you get there. We will never pressure you into something you don't want or aren't ready for—it's totally your choice. When you're ready to move forward, our office can provide a cost estimate and will take care of scheduling.

Why should I choose Tufts Medicine?

Simply put, we are board-certified doctors that are hyper-focused to keep you safe and looking your best.



Am I a good candidate for surgery?

We want to understand your preferences, and we'll talk about the things you need to do before the surgery and how long it may take to recover. If you are under 18, pregnant, thinking about having a baby, have frequent changes in your weight, or smoke, we may suggest delaying the surgery. Your well-being is our top concern, and we are committed to providing the best and safest care we can.

What is plastic surgery?

Plastic surgery deals with the repair, reconstruction or replacement of a physical issue involving the skin, musculoskeletal system, craniomaxillofacial structures, hand, extremities, breast, trunk or external genitalia. Although plastic surgery is used to improve undesirable qualities of normal structures, it is also used in most reconstructive procedures.

How can I pay for my surgery?

Reconstructive surgery is usually covered by insurance. Some cosmetic surgery, injectables or procedures require hospital services like anesthesia and operating rooms. Because most insurance plans don’t cover cosmetic surgery, injectables or procedures, we can help you find the financing program that is right for you. A number of these options are available with low monthly payments and interest.
