Face Procedures

Performing Face Procedures for Boston and New England

Dr. George Volpe performs a number of facial procedures, allowing Boston patients to effectively achieve their aesthetic goals. These diverse procedures range from brow lift to ear surgery to facial fat grafting.

Brow Lift

Restore youthful brows and elevate the brows with a brow lift from Dr. Volpe. This procedure involves precisely elevating and repositioning the tissues of the forehead.

Cheek Augmentation

Improve your facial contours with cheek augmentation. This procedure aims to add structure to gaunt or hollow cheekbones using fillers, implants, or fat grafting.

Chin Implant

The chin can recede over time due to drooping skin. In other cases, a recessed chin is genetic. Regardless of its cause, a weak chin can be improved with a chin implant. The procedure involves adding volume to enhance the overall profile of the lower face to achieve a balanced chin proportion to the nose, along with a more contoured jawline.

Ear Surgery

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is performed to improve the shape and position of the ears. The most common technique is to improve prominent ears. Other techniques include reducing or repairing earlobes.

Eyelid Surgery

Drooping eyelids and eyelid puffiness can make us look tired all the time. Even worse, sagging upper lids can limit our visual field. Eyelid surgery can be performed to remove the excess skin and fat from the eyelids, restoring a more youthful, alert, and awake appearance.


Drooping cheeks with jowls and loose, sagging neck skin can be improved with a facelift. The procedure involves lifting the tissues of the face for a younger appearance. Techniques are tailored to the individual, and results can be long-lasting.

Lip Augmentation

Fuller lips can be achieved with lip augmentation. The most common technique is lip injections by Dr. Volpe or his nurse injectors. Other techniques include Botox lip flips, fat injections, central or outer lip lifting, and even lip implants. During the consultation, you will be asked about your desired shape and size for your lips. Each procedure is highly individualized to balance your overall facial features.

Neck Lift

Say goodbye to that turkey-wattle neck or double chin with a neck lift. This procedure involves removing excess neck skin and fat and tightening neck skin and muscles. Neck lifts can create a smoother and tighter-looking neck.


Rhinoplasty is focused on improving the size and shape of the nose. During the consultation with Dr. Volpe, you will be asked about your concerns and the ideal look for your nose, including the nasal tip and nasal bridge. Rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic purposes and can help to improve nasal breathing.

Facial Fat Grafting

As we age, we naturally lose facial muscle tissue and fat. This tends to make us look older and tired. Facial fat grafting can be performed to restore volume in hollowed cheeks, sunken undereye areas, and more. It involves transferring excess fat from another area of the patient’s body to key regions of their face.

The Cost of Face Procedures

The price of a face procedure at Volpe Plastic Surgery varies depending on a number of factors. Cost can be influenced by the specific procedure chosen, the time required to perform it, types of anesthesia, and the techniques required.
