Face and Neck Plastic Surgery in Central Texas

Your face is what the world sees first, so you should love how you look. As people age, the appearance of their faces and necks change. It’s common for facial skin and fat to eventually shift or start to sag, causing excess skin to bunch around the jawline and in the upper neck. This can cause some people to become unhappy with their appearance, leading them to lose confidence in the way they look. Although this phenomenon is common, it doesn’t have to be a mandatory part of the aging process.

The advanced procedures and professional services administered by Dr. Charles Guy and the team at Facial Plastic Surgery of Central Texas can lift years — and sometimes decades — off a patient’s face. Think of how amazing it would feel to look in the mirror and love that face staring back at you! It can happen, and much more easily than you might think, thanks to the safe and effective procedures at Facial Plastic Surgery of Central Texas. Patients in central Texas can obtain a full range of facial plastic surgery services, performed by trained professionals in state-of-the-art facilities.


Noticeable signs of aging are commonly found in the lower-to-mid face and neck. Because the face is often the first thing people notice about others, these signs of aging can play a major role in the way people view themselves. A facelift is a safe surgical procedure that can be used to help patients treat those unwanted signs of aging.

The procedure uses well-hidden incisions to tighten and smooth problem areas of the face. It helps accentuate a person’s features by lifting a layer below the skin called the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) and then removing the excess skin.

Mini Facelift

Patients who have experienced less visible signs of aging but still wish to address certain areas may benefit from a mini facelift procedure. Small incisions around a patient’s ears are administered to tighten the skin on the face. Although a mini facelift doesn’t address neck sagging or excess skin as much as a traditional facelift, it is still an effective procedure to safely tighten the SMAS and remove some excess skin.

Neck Lift

For some, the area of concern doesn’t involve the skin on the face. Instead, patients may be unhappy with the way the skin around their neck has aged. If the skin on your face still looks great but you are not pleased with how the skin on your neck has aged, we recommend a neck lift. Also known as lower rhytidectomy or platysmaplasty, a neck lift will improve visible signs of aging in the neck and along the jawline.

Lip Lifts 

Often as unique as the eyes, the lips come in all shapes and sizes. They are used to convey emotions and naturally draw much attention. As people age, the upper lip can begin to elongate, causing it to lose its ability to express emotion like it once did. Traditionally, an aesthetically-pleasing shape for lips requires the red part of the lips to show. A lip lift safely rolls out the lip. Shortens the upper lip so that a small amount of teeth can be seen when the mouth is slightly open and gives a more red show, conveying a more youthful lip.

Neck Liposuction

The fat situated around the neck can directly affect the overall look of the face. With aging, and sometimes due to genetics, fat can form in this area, resulting in some people becoming self-conscious about their looks. They may resort to lifestyle changes to hide this area, such as wearing scarfs or turtlenecks. A neck liposuction procedure offers more of a permanent solution. This virtually scarless procedure uses small incisions to remove unwanted fat and help sculpt certain areas like the neck and jawline.

Clients can have their necks sculpted to their ideal shape with the MyEllevate suture suspension procedure. This proven and effective treatment is done through a series of tiny punctures to the skin, resulting in minimal downtime and almost no scarring. It’s designed to minimize platysmal bands and enhance the neck to achieve a more defined jawline and neckline.

Buccal Fat Removal

Buccal fat pads are located on each side of the face, adding volume to the cheeks. They can contribute to a patient having a round-shaped face or occasionally fullness to the cheeks/lower face. Buccal fat removal procedures remove these pads, giving clients the slimmer-looking face they desire.

Chin Implant

In terms of creating a beautiful, balanced appearance, the chin is an often overlooked element. However, having a weak chin or one that is not proportionate to the rest of the face can make it appear that the nose protrudes more. Furthermore, a strong jaw is often associated psychologically with intelligence, confidence, and power.

A chin implant can help patients achieve the balanced appearance they desire. Facial Plastic Surgery of Central Texas uses advanced 3D software imaging to accurately demonstrate to patients the outcome of the procedure and allow them to select the chin implant that meets their cosmetic goals.


Clients who are unhappy with the appearance of their face or neck may believe there’s too much fat, too much skin, or the jawline is not where they want it. Patients who need precision fat reduction or skin contraction now have a solution that can be done under local anesthesia with FaceTite.

FaceTite is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency instead of excisional surgery. Radiofrequency technology tightens the skin, stimulating collagen and removing fat below the skin to address sagging areas, lower face and neck wrinkles, and fix jowls and other signs of aging. Performed in the office, this procedure involves very little downtime and leaves minimal scarring.
