Dr. Dutton’s Specialties

plastic surgeon for breast augmentationAs a plastic surgeon, Dr. Dutton tailored his experiences to specialize in facial rejuvenation, breast, and body surgery.

Facial Rejuvenation

Nearly everyone wants to maintain the face of their youth. However, aging is inevitable. Still, today’s facial rejuvenation procedures help you slow the visual aging process.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons offers advice for people considering whether facial rejuvenation is for them. They suggest standing in a well-lit room and looking in the mirror. Be honest with yourself and ask yourself what you specifically want to change. The correct cosmetic procedure varies depending on your answer. Facial rejuvenation surgery like a facelift or eyelid surgery may be the best option if the concerns include jowls in the lower face or droopy eyelids.

Facial rejuvenation surgery includes facelifts, mini facelifts, eyelid surgery, a brow lift, neck lift, and more. Some may find that earlier signs of aging respond well to injectables like Botox® or dermal fillers. Dr. Dutton is skilled and has expertise covering both injectables and surgical facial rejuvenation.

Breast Surgery

Whether you want breast augmentation or a breast lift, Dr. Dutton has you covered. Whatever your goals and needs, successful breast surgery positively affects your confidence, quality of life, and sometimes physical comfort.

When seeking breast surgery, you want a plastic surgeon for breast augmentation you can trust who will listen to you. Dr. Dutton’s empathy and patient-centered approach are perfect as you navigate these highly personal decisions.
