At Newport Faces De Novo, I always balance safety, shorter recovery times and natural looking results. Thousands of procedures have led to the evolution of my signature De Novo lift. This incorporates a combination of my most effective techniques, customized for maximum results in each person. Most commonly, my procedure includes Smart liposuction contouring, tightening of underlying SMAS with sutures in combination with platysmaplasty, and removal of excess skin. The incisions are placed in natural folds and hidden by hair when possible, to make them less conspicuous with normal healing. They can be adjusted with some variation to achieve the best results for you. The procedure can be performed alone or simultaneously with optional enhancement procedures for greater effect. The result is amazing with a natural elevation of the lower face, jawline and neck contour. Marionette lines and nasolabial folds are also softened. Sutures are removed after one week. Variable bruising and swelling continues to resolve over the next couple of weeks in most people.


Although minimized, all surgical procedures have some degree of risks which will be discussed in context of your health during your consultation. All of my procedures can be performed comfortably with local anesthesia in the office setting. Most sessions are usually 1.5-3.0 hours depending on the procedures selected. General anesthesia is also available if preferred at additional cost.
