Dr. Little III's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Little III "World-recognized facelift and fat-grafting expert J. William Little, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Washington, D.C. is a Harvard-educated, board-certified plastic surgeon who limits his practice to restoration of the aging face: facelift andneck lift, restoration of the aging eyes (blepharoplasty) and aging mouth, return of lost facial and eyelid volume through fat grafting, and aging skinrepair. He has famously advocated an architectural (shape-based) approach to such rejuvenation over a traditional (tension-based) one. While most plastic surgeons describe themselves as widely recognized, of course, within their personal websites–the best measures of such recognition remain the surgeon's records of scientific publications and–perhaps even more so–invited speaking engagements. Dr. Little is as well-recognized, by the way, for his expertise in fat grafting (especially to the challenging area of the eyelids), as he is for his skills in facelifting. He is among the most sought-after speakers on both topics world-wide and has delivered more than a thousand invited lectures and courses to plastic surgeons at home and abroad. "
This content was provided by Dr. Little III "Safety
Patient safety is the absolute first priority. Dr. Little performs surgery in a certified facility with a record of patient safety, excellent anesthesia and support services. Next, surgical safety-Dr. Little's years of expertise in facelift, and use of less-invasive surgical techniques.
Dr. Little believes that any aspect of unnaturalness in a facelift result - apparent scars, facial distortion, altered smile, vague bizarreness, is a failure; the patient's final appearance must remain natural.
Result must be effective, lending an impression of enhanced health and vitality. The most frequent reason bringing disappointed patients to Dr. Little after prior facelift surgery is inadequate improvement of their initial aging.
The result must hold up over time. While aging will continue, the overall improvement should remain for many years - when further aging does reappear, the patient should continue to appear younger and fitter.
