Dr. White’s Trusted Approach to Facial Enhancements

Dr. White offers a wide range of surgical, minimally-invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures to help his clients rejuvenate their looks on their terms. Regardless of your comfort level, signs of aging and cosmetic goals, there is a very good chance that he has a treatment option that can work for you. And you can rest assured that his approach to your facial enhancement will lead to a conservative and beautiful transformation that you can be proud of.

For patients who desire surgery to enhance their looks and turn back the hands of time, Dr. White is known for his exemplary facelift, brow lift, eyelid surgery and neck lift techniques. In targeting these areas, he makes a number of precise changes that result in a dramatic transformation. After tightening lax muscles and removing excess or drooping fatty deposits beneath the surface, he subtly lifts and tightens the skin to correct wrinkles and fine lines. By focusing on both the surface of the skin and the underlying tissues, Dr. White creates natural results that are sure to withstand the test of time.

When our clients prefer a less intensive treatment approach, Dr. White offers a wide range of minimally-invasive and non-invasive options. Whether he is administering BOTOX injections, Ultherapy treatments or dermal fillers, he focuses on three objectives. First, he wants to accomplish your cosmetic goals, so his number one priority is creating changes that are in alignment with your vision. Secondly, he wants to make sure that your enhancements are natural. He doesn’t want it to be apparent that you’ve had any work done, so he goes to great lengths to ensure that your results are flexible and organic – never overdone or frozen. And finally, he wants you to have a pleasant and enjoyable treatment experience. To that end, he employs a gentle technique and will administer a topical anesthetic whenever necessary to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible during the appointment.

This thoughtful, three-pronged approach is what leads to the incredible results that Dr. White is able to achieve for his clients, and why it’s so important to seek out one of the best facial plastic surgeons New York has available for your non-surgical procedures. Although these treatments are offered by other practitioners, only an experienced facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. White, will have the artistic eye and technical skill necessary to ensure the outcome you want.
