Facial Plastic Surgery

At Cedars-Sinai, you’ll find a team of experts who specialize in facial plastic surgery. Whether you’re looking to restore a more youthful look to your face or want to repair an injury or scarring, our plastic surgeons can help.

Our Approach to Facial Surgery

Your face should make you feel confident and comfortable. Our plastic surgeons have in-depth training in a range of facial cosmetic and reconstructive procedures.

Surgery After Skin Cancer Treatment

Skin cancer is common, especially in California. After skin cancer treatment, we can repair scarring and perform skin grafts to heal facial defects. We also reconstruct the nose and other areas of the face using bone, muscle, skin and tissue from other parts of the body.

Cosmetic Surgery

We offer facial rejuvenation to refresh your skin and help you look younger. Our plastic surgeons also perform cosmetic nose surgery (nose jobs) and offer laser wrinkle removal and fillers to smooth wrinkles. We also perform neck liposuction, jowl lifts and other cosmetic procedures.

Injury, Disease & Birth Anomalies

Injuries, birth anomalies and illness can damage your face and your sense of self. Some facial issues also make it difficult to eat and speak. We repair cleft lip and cleft palate and can build new ears for people born without one (microtia) using cartilage from another area of the body.

We also use fat grafting to treat complex burns and facial wasting caused by diseases and medications.

Facial Palsy and Facial Nerve Surgery

Our facial nerve specialists treat Bell’s palsy and other facial nerve injuries. These injuries can cause a lack of function and feeling in your face. We use advanced diagnostics and surgical techniques to repair these delicate nerves.

About facial plastic surgery

Each person is unique. Most cosmetic facial procedures do not require an overnight stay in the hospital. Craniofacial and maxillofacial anomalies often need more complex, extensive repairs. You may need multiple surgeries.

Minimally invasive surgery

Wherever possible, our surgeons use a minimally invasive approach. This type of procedure uses smaller incisions and fewer stitches. It can also result in less pain and a shorter recovery time.
