"Rhinoplasty is my favorite procedure, " says Dr. Gayner.


 "People undergoing rhinoplasty most often have never had a nose they consider ideal. In fact, most feel their nose attracts negative attention due to a bump or a wide tip. Improving these unwanted features positively affects your self image for a lifetime. Rhinoplasty patients are undoubtedly my happiest patients for these reasons."




Nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose.  Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly improve one's appearance.  The definition of rhinoplasty is, literally, shaping the nose. 

If you have wondered how nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, could improve your looks and self-confidence, let us show you how rhinoplasty is performed and what you can expect.

Successful facial plastic surgery is a result of good rapport between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops in the consulting stages before surgery. Dr. Gayner can answer questions about your specific needs.

Younger Looking Hands With Fat Transfer?


The hand, as well as the face, is one of the most visible areas of the human body where aging is detected.  Even with a successful facelift to make one look youthful, the presence of aging can be determined by looking at someone's hands.


Rejuvenation of the hand is a procedure where your own fat is used to

"fill in" the hollow, collapsed areas on the back of the hand.

This fat is also used to help hide the prominent veins that also so often contribute to an elderly-appearing hand.

Fat-grafting performs long-term skin thickening and rejuvenating functions far beyond its initial filling effect.

Fast Facts about Hand Rejuvenation with Fat Transfer 

  • Usually an office procedure with local anesthesia.
  • Fat is harvested by liposuction from the abdomen or thighs.
  • The fat is then injected into back of the hands through tiny incisions.  
  • Approximately 15-20 mL of fat may be injected into each hand.
  • After the procedure, patients will typically experience swelling of the hands.
  • All patients in one study recognized improvement in the texture of the hands. 
  • Wrinkling of the hands can still occur despite fat grafting.
  • Brown age spots can also be treated with a laser for additional rejuvenation.


 Hand rejuvenation may seem to be a simple procedure.  However, with the complex anatomy of the hand and with the potential hand complications that can occur, one should be cognizant of who performs these type of procedures.  Someone such as Dr.Stratis, a Board Certified Plastic and Hand surgeon, would be the best choice for hand rejuvenation options.
