Solutions for face, neck & eyes

Look as good as you feel.

So many of our patients enjoy active, vibrant lives, yet when they look in the mirror, they don't see a reflection that mimics how they feel on the inside. One patient said, "I feel like I'm twenty-two, but when I look in the mirror, I wonder, 'who is this person?'"

We each age in different ways and in different areas of our face. Some patients desire more jaw definition. Some see their cheeks losing volume, and the fullness they used to have is replaced with wrinkles. Many patients have an area in particular that bothers them that can be easily corrected through facial plastic surgery. You don't have to spend the rest of your life with the chin you hate or the jowls that remind you of your grandmother.

We welcome you to view our gallery of before and after pictures so you can feel confident in the results Dr. Franklin can achieve for you.

 
Cary, NC Board Certified Facelift Plastic Surgeon, Joseph A. Franklin, MD

Surgery is an art form.

There is no "boilerplate" facelift. Each patient requires a comprehensive consultation where Dr. Franklin will discuss areas of concern, appearance goals and the best options for their specific facial structure. While each plastic surgeon goes through the same extensive training, plastic surgery is unique in that you need surgical brilliance but also a keen eye for the person's individual traits and how surgery can best complement them.

FACELIFT

Look how you feel.
So many of our patients enjoy active, vibrant lives, yet when they look in the mirror, they don’t see a reflection that mimics how they feel on the inside. One patient said, “I feel like I’m twenty-two, but when I look in the mirror, I wonder, ‘who is this woman?’ It’s all I see.”

We each age in different ways and in different areas of our face. Some patients desire more jaw definition. Some see their cheeks losing volume, and the fullness they used to have is replaced with wrinkles. Many patients have an area in particular that bothers them which can be easily corrected through facial plastic surgery. You don’t have to spend the rest of your life with a face that doesn’t match your spirit and energy.



RHINOPLASTY

A prominent feature.
Our noses are the most prominent feature on our faces, sitting right in the center.  If you are unhappy with how your nose looks, there is no avoiding seeing it every day. It is very challenging for patients who have gone their whole lives disliking their noses.

Great consideration.
Many patients contemplating rhinoplasty, have for years, imagined what kind of nose they would like. They may have different versions they would like to discuss. We find patients who are considering rhinoplasty have given the topic a great deal of thought and want a surgeon who will give them the same level of attention.

In-depth consultation.
Rhinoplasty, while very popular, requires excellent surgical technique. Selecting a surgeon who has vast experience and understands the exacting procedure is paramount. Dr. Franklin spends a great deal of time with patients who are considering rhinoplasty. He hears their wishes and dreams and works with them to create a look that makes them happy but also suits their face. This in-depth consultation combined with Dr. Franklin's exceptional post-surgery care has produced outstanding results for our patients.


 

NECK LIFT

As we age, the appearance of our necks can unfairly contribute to a less youthful look, and sagging skin can take away from our overall appearance. Loose skin around the neck, sagging skin under the chin and hanging jowls can add years to a person's appearance.

Many benefits in one procedure.
A neck lift provides a firmer shape to your jaw, a smooth, relaxed and wrinkle free neck as well as a more defined chin. Many of our patients find the results of a neck lift to be quite remarkable and a tremendous boost to their confidence.

EYELID SURGERY

Puffiness, loose skin, bags under the eyes, tired expression and wrinkles are some of the concerns our patients share with us about their eyes. Eyelid surgery is tremendously popular as the skin around our eyes is very thin and usually the first area of our face to begin to show aging.

Dr. Franklin is very particular about studying your eye shape, your eye movement and how your eyes fit with the rest of the face in order to ensure your eyelid surgery is completely natural looking.

Expertise and Experience.
It is imperative you select a plastic surgeon with vast experience in eyelid surgery - a surgeon who knows how to create the right look that is unique to you, so you look like you when the surgery is complete.


 

BROW LIFT

A pronounced difference.
Elevating the brow, the top third of your face, can have dramatic effects on the appearance for your face. Our foreheads are used constantly throughout each day, beginning in our infancy. At a certain point, there is a droop as the skin loses its elasticity.

The droop then has profound effects on your eyes. Lines occur between your eyebrows, your eyelids become heavier and may also droop. Many patients say they feel like they look tired or angry, when they are neither. A brow lift can help you look refreshed.

Dr. Franklin's brow lift procedure can completely change how you look and feel. When you look in the mirror, you can see bright, uplifted eyes, a smooth forehead and smooth area between your eyebrows. This procedure requires great expertise, so you will look youthful and natural, and not look as though your expression is frozen.
