At The Plastic Surgery Group in Albany, NY, our team of experienced and skilled plastic surgeons can provide you with the personalized care you need. 


A facelift is an amazing option for treating severe signs of facial aging like sagging skin, deep facial folds, wrinkles, and jowls. This procedure focuses on eliminating loose and saggy facial skin while lifting the remaining tissue to give the face a smoother and more youthful appearance. A facelift is a highly personalized procedure as every face is unique and requires a personalized approach. 

There are different kinds of facelifts that each offer their unique benefits. At The Plastic Surgery Group, we offer the traditional facelift which provides more dramatic rejuvenation around the midface and lower face with long-lasting results. Our mini facelift is intended for mild to moderate skin sagging in the lower face only and offers a quicker recovery. Our liquid facelift is a non-surgical option that uses BOTOX® and dermal fillers to treat mild signs of facial aging.

Eyelid Surgery

The eyelids can be heavily affected by aging and other factors. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can correct many common issues people experience. This includes:

  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Puffy bags under the eyes

Eyelid surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. Upper eyelid surgery often involves eliminating excess fat that is causing the eyelids to droop, while also lifting and tightening the eyelid skin. Excess skin may be trimmed, and the eyelid muscles may be tightened.

Lower eyelid surgery is often performed to eliminate puffy bags that have formed under the eyes. The procedure involves removing fat from the lower eyelid through a small incision. Some fat is left in the area to avoid giving the eyes a sunken appearance. 


Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is performed for a variety of reasons. In some cases, rhinoplasty is done to address a specific concern with a feature of the nose like a hooked nasal tip or a bump on the nasal bridge. In other instances, multiple features of the nose are reshaped for more dramatic results. Rhinoplasty can also be done to correct damage to the nose caused by an accident or injury. This can restore the appearance of the nose and improve breathing by clearing any obstructions.

Facial Implants

If you are unhappy with the shape or appearance of your chin, jawline, or cheeks, facial implants may be able to provide you with your ideal results. Facial implants offer a way to enhance the contours of the face and bring balance to the facial proportions. 

Chin and jaw implants can add size and strength to the appearance of your profile for a more refined and prominent appearance. Cheek implants can bring life back to sunken cheeks by enhancing the contours of the midface.
