We offer a variety of cosmetic procedures including:

This is generally done in our office with the use of local anesthetic. Through small incisions, skin folds are minimized by removing tissue and tightening skin, giving new shape to your eyes.

Through small incisions, the skin can be pulled up and tightened, lifting the brow and giving you a more youthful appearance.

Cosmetically, by means of surgery, bone, cartilage and skin are altered on the nose to create desired frontal and profile views. Functionally, surgery can straighten a deviated septum or reduce the size of turbinates, allowing for better breathing.

This begins with an incision just behind the ear, in the natural fold where the ear is joined to the head. Cartilage and skin is removed. In some cases, cartilage will be trimmed shaping it in to the desired form and pinning the cartilage back with permanent sutures to secure it. Other times, cartilage will not be removed at all, instead use stitches to hold the cartilage permanently in place. After sculpting the cartilage to the desired shape, it will be sutured to anchor the ear until healing occurs to hold the ear in the desired position.

At Catalyst, you will receive the personalized attention you deserve in a warm, luxurious environment.
