    It’s time to look young again. Specializing in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Shapiro uses his 20 years of experience to help you achieve radiant results and look and feel years younger.  Named “Top Doc” by the Consumer Council of America, Dr. Shapiro continues to deliver outstanding results to his face lift patients.

    When all you need is a little help in looking young again, a mini lift could be just what you need. The perfect solution for a younger looking face and neck area, this procedure reduces jowls and loose skin in targeted areas. Performed with local anesthesia, the mini-lift uses smaller incisions and has a faster recovery time than a traditional facelift.

    Dr. Shapiro pioneered the Mini-Lift more than five years ago and is highly regarded for achieving a natural look for his patients.  He is also known for his calm approach to surgery and putting all his patients at ease.

  • ThermiTight

    ThermiTight, also known as ThermiRF is perfect for you if your skin needs rejuvenation, or if you want to melt away fat, or tighten loose skin in key areas without committing to a full facelift.

    ThermiRF was approved by the FDA in 2013 for general surgical use in soft tissues. It uses controlled Radio Frequency (RF) to increase skin temperature under the skin in specific areas to tighten skin and tissue, melt away fat, or permanently relax lines. ThermiTight is great for tightening skin on your jowls and neck.

    Dr. Shapiro is a national trainer for ThermiTight, which is the latest technology in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Patients have little downtime and see fast results. ThermiTight is done under local anesthesia. It is a great “in-between” procedure for patients not ready for surgery but who want more significant results than other non-invasive procedures offer.

    Request a consultation with Dr. Shapiro to learn more about ThermiTight and if it is the best choice for you.

  • Liposuction/Chin Augmentation

    This popular procedure safely suctions fat away from the neck and chin or “the double chin” area.

    A double chin is really extra fat on the neck. It can be a result of weight gain, aging, or hereditary factors. Liposuction is best for women or men who want to improve the definition between the chin and the neck. It works well when there’s extra fat on the neck, but not loose or hanging skin. Extra fat on the neck under the chin can make a woman look older and heavier, once liposuction is performed the transformation to a younger look is impressive.

    Request a consultation with Dr. Shapiro regarding liposuction and chin augmentation.

  • Rhinoplasty

    Dr. Shapiro began his career as an ear, nose and throat surgeon and is uniquely qualified to perform Rhinoplasty, also known as a  “nose job” to give you the nose you always wanted and ensure you’re also able to breathe. If your nose job doesn’t look the way you hoped, or if you can’t breathe properly as a result, request a consultation with Dr. Shapiro. Dr. Shapiro also performs many revision rhinoplasties to correct problems created by surgery elsewhere.

  • Blepharoplasty

    Achieve a younger look by tightening the area around the eyelid. Dr. Shapiro performs eyelid surgery to remove or tighten sagging skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, more taunt appearance that takes years off your face and makes you look more rested.

    Eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the lower eyelids, or loose or sagging skin on the upper eyelid, which sometimes impairs vision.

    Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin, erase fine lines, and remove puffiness.

    Request a free consultation with Dr. Shapiro to discuss your options for blepharoplasty and other treatments.

  • Botox and Fillers

    Dr. Shapiro personally administers cosmetic fillers and Botox, with which he has extensive experience. Botox relaxes the facial muscles, eliminating wrinkles on the forehead, brow, and crow’s feet around the eye area. Patients are pleased to enjoy results for up to four months.

    Fillers like Restalyne, Juvederm, Radisse and also fat injections, are perfect for effectively treating creases and folds of the lower face. Smile lines disappear and a more youthful you emerges. Fillers are also great for lip augmentation.

    Request a consultation with Dr. Shapiro to learn more about how Botox and Fillers can help you look and feel younger.

  • Skin Resurfacing

    Micro Dermabrasion/ Dermaplaning

    Micro Dermabrasion treats fine lines and wrinkles, decreases pore size and mild acne scarring. Sometimes called the “lunchtime peel” this technique is done in-office and has little downtime later. Dermplaning is also done in-office and is ideal for more severe problems.

    Dermabrasion and dermaplaning work to renew the skin’s top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping. Dermabrasion can improve the look of facial skin scarred by accidents or previous surgery, or to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also sometimes used to remove the pre-cancerous growths called keratoses. Both dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be performed on targeted areas. Dermabrasion and dermaplaning can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as facelift, scar removal or revision, or chemical peel.

    Laser Treatment

    Laser skin resurfacing, also called laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion is used to permanently remove wrinkles and tighten skin using laser treatments specifically designed for your needs.
    Even facial scars from acne can be reduced and moles removed.

    Dr. Shapiro has perfected a technique that works precisely on targeted areas and reduces “downtime.”

    Laser skin resurfacing improves fine lines, wrinkles, scars from acne or chickenpox, aged or sun-damaged skin, liver spots, skin tone, warts, birthmarks, and enlarged oil glands on the nose.

    Using the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, Dr. Shapiro removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner, one layer at a time. The laser removes the outer layer of skin (the epidermis) and simultaneously heats the underlying skin (the dermis). This action works to stimulate growth of new collagen fibers so the treated area heals, and the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer.
