Facial Plastic Surgery

FaceThe face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body. A number of plastic surgery procedures are available today to address the signs of facial aging and correct other facial imperfections.

Dr. Trang Vo-Nguyen (Dr. V) is a board certified facial plastic surgeon providing state of the art procedures to patients in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and surrounding communities.


Clinically known as rhytidectomy, facelift surgery is a tremendous and remarkable procedure designed to reduce facial sagging and minimize wrinkles and fine lines in the mid and lower part of the face. The procedure involves raising the soft tissue in the mid-face, tightening underlying weak facial muscles, and removing excess skin from the face. With a facelift, a more youthful looking facial appearance can be restored without making the overlying skin look stretched.

Neck Lift

Neck lift surgery is often performed in conjunction with a facelift to achieve more harmonious outcomes. It can make the neck and jaw line area more defined, while reducing neck creases and unsightly neck bands. The procedure involves surgical removal of excess fat, contouring of the skin and repositioning or tightening of underlying muscles in the neck.

Brow Lift

Furrowed or drooping brow can give a tired look to the face. The condition can be corrected with brow lift surgery, which is designed to reposition the weak muscle and tissue underneath the skin and lifting of the eyebrows. Dr. V receives patients from Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, and nearby areas for brow lift and other procedures.

Cheek Lift

A mid-face lift, commonly called a cheek lift, involves repositioning of the malar fat pad onto the cheekbone. This allows the sagging skin in the cheek area to be lifted into a firmer position and restores the youthful fullness of the cheeks. In addition to rejuvenating the upper cheeks, the procedure also improves the appearance of the lower eyelids.

Chin Augmentation

Chin augmentation surgery is designed to make a recessive chin more prominent, improve definition of the jaw line and enhance the structure and balance of the face. The procedure typically involves placement of chin implants to re-build the chin. The surgeon will maintain a balance between the nose and chin, or may perform chin augmentation in conjunction with rhinoplasty for a more proportionate outcome.

Cheek Implants

Loss of cheek volume can occur with age or due to the unique cheek bone structure. The surgeon may recommend cheek implant surgery, which involves the placement of biocompatible implants to enhance the cheekbone projection, add volume to the cheeks, and augment the overall cheek structure.

Facial Fat Transfer

This is a popular procedure to add volume to depleted areas of the face. The surgeon will harvest spare fat from donor sites such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks with the help of a tiny cannula. The harvested fat will be purified in a sterile centrifugal process, and transferred to the targeted areas of the face using an advanced micro-syringe. Precision at its finest.
