Gravity can be one of our worst enemies as we get older–as is skin laxity which occurs after years of sun exposure. The effect of these two constant forces causes the skin to droop and sag overtime, often resulting in an aged look that does not accurately reflect one’s inner vitality. Patients often complain of others constantly asking them if they are tired or angry, despite the contrary. Dr. Giancarlo Zuliani performs the brow lift, or forehead lift, procedure to help men and women achieve a youthful and lively appearance that better suits who they truly are.VISIT PAGE
Most people tend to grow out of the baby face or chubby cheeks they had as a child. However, for some, prominently full cheeks are genetic and can last into adulthood. A full and puffy face can mask the natural angles of the upper cheekbones and surrounding areas. Buccal fat removal counteracts this by slimming and enhancing your facial contours.
Your buccal fat removal treatment with Dr. Zuliani will be personalized, based on your unique facial structures. He will determine precisely how much fat needs to be removed to best highlight your facial angles. This procedure will improve the aesthetic contour of your face and give you the appearance of high cheekbones.VISIT PAGE
There’s no greater indicator of youth than dimples. Those little indentations in your cheeks that only show up when you smile are an endearing genetic trait than subtly enhances and brightens your entire face.
For those lucky enough to have them, dimples are considered a sign of youthfulness and beauty. Unfortunately, most people born with natural facial dimples tend to lose them as the body changes during the aging process. A dimpleplasty procedure can easily restore those adorable marks or give you the ones you’ve always wanted.VISIT PAGE

The face holds many clues to who we are – our race, age, and gender. Both the male and female sexes have their own unique facial traits that naturally give off either a more masculine or a more feminine appearance. While facial surgery only makes up part of a patient’s transition, it’s an extremely important aspect that can ultimately impact how gender is identified.
Dr. Zuliani’s unique knowledge of facial aesthetics and how they relate to gender can help you during this transition. For facial feminization, certain masculine markers are removed to soften the face. A reduction of the chin and nose, a smoothing of the cheeks, and changes to the eyes may be recommended. On the other hand, a more masculine look can be achieved with a more chiseled jawline and stronger facial structure. Dr. Zuliani will work closely with you and discuss your goals to develop a highly personalized plan for your surgery.VISIT PAGE
