As a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Ho specializes exclusively in aesthetic and reconstructive procedures of the head and neck region, including rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)

Rhinoplasty is regarded as one of the most delicate and most difficult plastic surgery procedures because it alters the central characteristic of the face. Nose surgery can be performed to change the appearance of your nose as well as to improve your nasal breathing. Dr. Ho specializes in rhinoplasty and will implement the most suitable techniques to improve the breathing function and shape of your nose and elegantly restore facial harmony.

Fat Transfer

Facial features such as cheeks and lips that have lost volume due to aging or are naturally flat or thin can be augmented surgically with fat transfer. Dr. Ho will perform a safe and gentle technique to harvest fat from another part of your body and transfer it to your face to create a more defined, youthful appearance.

Necklift

The jawline and neck areas are not immune the aging process. Gravity forces over time lead to jowling with decreased jaw definition, increased neck skin laxity, and neck muscle banding. Dr. Ho will use a natural and individualized necklift approach to restore more youthful definition to your jawline and neck.

Browlift

Eyebrows tend to descend with age and can make the eyes appear more tired or sad. Depending on the nature of your aesthetic concerns and goals, Dr. Ho will select the most suitable browlift technique to give your eyes a fresh and more youthful look.

Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping Surgery)

Birth defects, accidents, or trauma can lend to a misshapen, protruding, or deformed ear. Dr. Ho will help reshape and refine ears with hidden scars and beautiful results.

Chin Augmentation

A weak or ill-defined chin can disrupt facial harmony, causing other facial features such as the nose to appear off balance. Dr. Ho will improve your facial features and create a more balanced jaw line with a straightforward chin augmentation surgery.
