Weak Chin or Jaw?

May 30, 2019 / by Dr. Brian Dorner

Henry Cavill doesn’t have that problem. You don’t have to either. Jaw, chin, cheeks, eyes – Dr Dorner has the answer for both men and women.

If you have sagging jowls and wrinkles, a facelift may be the best procedure for you. Removing excess facial skin can reveal the chiseled chin that is hiding beneath.

Facelift surgery is a complex procedure that requires extensive knowledge in facial anatomy, a very specific skill set of surgical techniques and a highly-developed eye for aesthetic detail. Not all physicians who practice cosmetic surgery receive training in facelift surgery during their residency training, so it’s important to do your homework before choosing a facelift surgeon.

Many of the current “quick lifts” or other minimally invasive facelifts that are touted as having natural, long-lasting results are really just facelift techniques from the 1960s and only last 2-3 years. A SMASectomy facelift, which is the mainstay of most surgeons, will last for about 5 years.

Advanced Facelift Techniques

The most advanced facelift available today is a deep plane multi-vectored facelift. This advanced facelift technique is Dr. Dorner’s specialty. What separates this procedure from older, outdated techniques is that the advanced facelift releases retaining ligaments of the face. This allows greater pull on deep tissues, not the skin, so you don’t get a stretched or pulled look because Dr. Dorner is pulling the tissues in the appropriate directions to give a natural result that can last more than 10 years.


Dr. Dorner was the only doctor chosen from hundreds of applications in the nation to complete a year-long advanced facelift fellowship with Dr. John Owsley, the top facelift surgeon at the time in the nation. He brings the most advanced techniques and West Coast skill to the Midwest for much less than you would pay on the West Coast. Comparatively speaking, you get the same technique at half the price in the Midwest. This advanced facelift would cost upwards of $50,000 and sometimes $100,000 on the West Coast.
