Your Options for Facial Cosmetic Surgery in Northern Virginia
When it comes to facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Desman offers a variety of treatments to suit your cosmetic tastes and address your specific problem areas. These procedures may be performed alone or in combination to help produce the most desirable results.
Damage from the sun and even the stress of daily life can leave deep creases around the nose and mouth, wrinkles in the forehead, and a slacking jawline. For patients who are unhappy with cosmetic changes on their face, facelifts offer an effective way to reverse the signs of age.

Dr. Desman offers the following facelift options to meet your specific needs:
- Full facelift – this surgery focuses on correcting loose skin and wrinkles from the cheeks, side of the face, lower face, and jaw area. The incisions for this procedure are usually on the edges of the lower half of the face.
- Mini lift – Also referred to as an S-lift, less tissue is removed with this facial procedure and a smaller portion of the face is lifted. Rather than focusing on the entire face, a mini lift typically treats wrinkles and sagging skin on the middle or lower part of the face.
Because this spot receives a lot of exposure from the elements, the forehead is a common problem area for people as they age. A deeply lined or drooping forehead can alter the overall appearance of the face, even if the rest of your skin is mostly free from wrinkles. For patients who only want to address the forehead rather than the whole face, a forehead lift offers targeted cosmetic treatment. Dr. Desman’s precise surgical techniques result in subtle enhancements that blend in seamlessly. And when paired with an eyelid lift, this combination of treatments will give your face a naturally rejuvenated appearance.*
The delicate skin surrounding the eyes tends to be very thin, which is why it’s often one of the first places on the face to show age. However, in severe cases, there is so much excess or drooping skin that it can be hard to fully open the eyes. This type of facial cosmetic surgery removes excess fatty tissue and skin, which tightens the area and smooths out stubborn wrinkles.
Rhinoplasty has remained a popular facial cosmetic surgery, and it can be used not only for cosmetic purposes, but to repair noses damaged by birth defect or injury, and to resolve breathing problems caused by deformities in the nose. Whether your needs are cosmetic or functional, Dr. Desman will work with you to create a treatment plan that aligns with your goals.
Although otoplasty, ear pinning surgery, is typically performed on younger children, it is frequently done for adults as well. It is a procedure that will bring the ears closer to the head and reduce the size of seemingly large ears. This cosmetic facial surgery can also correct the appearance of ears that are misshapen from injury.
In addition to traditional facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Desman can sculpt and tone various areas of the face through facial liposuction. For stubborn areas of fat that don’t seem to improve, this facial procedure helps create a contoured appearance by removing fat deposits in targeted areas*. Dr. Desman is skilled in the tumescent, ultrasound-assisted, and SAFELipo® liposuction techniques.

Non-surgical Facial Procedure Treatments in Northern Virginia
Some enhancements are best achieved through non-surgical facial rejuvenation techniques. As stand-alone procedures or in combination with a surgical option, Dr. Desman offers the following facial procedure treatments:
For stubborn wrinkles and fine lines, Botox® Cosmetic is a popular option for non-invasive facial rejuvenation. This facial procedure requires no downtime, and injections can be completed in just 10 minutes. Dr. Desman also offers Xeomin® injections.
Dermal fillers can fill areas that have lost volume, restoring a more youthful appearance. They also smooth out deep creases and wrinkles in the skin without any recovery or downtime needed. These injectables are frequently used in combination with facial surgery, Botox® Cosmetic, Kybella®, and skin peels to produce optimal rejuvenation.
Perfectly proportioned lips can completely rejuvenate the look of your face. With non-surgical lip enhancement, you can boost the appearance of thin lips and address issues of asymmetry.
Whether they’re from acne or prior injuries, facial scars are a source of embarrassment for many patients. A non-invasive facial procedure can minimize the appearance of dark scars and help flatten raised scars, allowing them to blend in with the rest of your skin.
Excess submental fat, commonly referred to as a “double chin,” can make even those in great physical condition look older or out of shape. Kybella® is a state-of-the-art fat reduction facial procedure that uses injections to re-shape the submental area.
