The face is the most prominent part of the body from an aesthetic point of view. Skin laxity, loss of volume, and appearance of wrinkles and lines first become visible on the face. Facelift cosmetic surgery is the most effective solution available to reverse the signs of aging and restore a younger-looking face. However, the procedure is complex and should be performed only by a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.

Leading Northern Virginia facelift plastic surgeons, Dr. Franklin D. Richards and Dr. A. Dean Jabs, operating through their offices in McLean VA, and Bethesda MD, provide state-of-the-art facelift surgery. The procedure is customized according to the unique facial anatomy and personal aesthetic goals of the patient. Their practice, Cosmetic Surgery Associates, receives patients from Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding areas.

He was chosen among the top surgeons in Virginia by the prestigious Northern Virginia magazine.

Apart from his practice as a plastic surgeon for patients in Northern Virginia, Fairfax, Alexandria, VA, Chevy Chase, Rockville, MD, and surrounding locations, Dr. Jabs also serves on the staff at the Suburban Hospital in Maryland, and Fairfax Hospital in Virginia. He also holds the position of an Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland.

Dr. Franklin D. Richards, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Customized Facelift Procedures

Dr. Jabs and Dr. Richards believe that the best results in a plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift can be achieved when the procedure is tailored to match with the individual aesthetic needs of the patient. They will carefully evaluate the patient’s health condition, facial anatomy, and innate aesthetic desires and expectations before recommending the most appropriate treatment approach.

The treatment plan may sometimes include a combination of a facelift and upper face procedures such as an eyelid lift or forehead lift. The principles of art and science will be combined to achieve results that are not only safe, natural-looking, and sustainable, but also artistic enough to meet or exceed the patient’s aesthetic aspirations.
