Cleveland Facial Plastic Surgical Procedures

For a long time, facelifts and rhinoplasty were the go-to procedures for facial plastic surgery as they were known to produce incredible results. However, facial rejuvenation has come a long way and offers a more diverse range of solutions tailored to combat aging and imperfections. Although procedures that sculpt the nose, chin, ears, and neck are still fundamental, modern techniques go beyond these areas. Dr. Diana Ponsky, a double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, pioneered non-invasive hair transplant surgeries, meticulous liposuction for addressing a double chin, and refined lip enhancements. Despite focusing on specific concerns, these modern interventions have a common goal: to harmonize facial proportions, reduce age-related changes, and instill a profound sense of self-confidence in patients.

Brow Lift

The eyebrows can lower over time, resulting in a tired, stern, or angry appearance. Surgical options such as brow rejuvenation elevate the eyebrows, reduce the heaviness of the upper eyelid, and help open up the eyes. A brow lift provides practical, long-term improvements.

Buccal Fat Pad Removal

Surgical fat pad extraction, or buccal fat removal, thins the lower cheeks and creates a leaner facial silhouette. Removing the buccal fat can give the patient a slimmer, more defined, or chiseled appearance and accentuate the cheekbones and jawline.

Earlobe Surgery

Ears come in all shapes and sizes and may sometimes appear out of proportion with the rest of the face. Also, our earlobes continue to elongate as we age, which can contribute to an older look for some men and women. Heavy jewelry pulls the skin in other cases, creating a drooping or damaged lobe.

Eyebrow Enhancement

Genetics, gravity, and age can make your face look older or older than you feel. Beginning as early as our 20s and 30s, we see the formation of forehead wrinkles that progress as we age. The eyebrows can lower over time, resulting in a tired, stern, or angry appearance. Surgical procedures such as eyebrow enhancement elevate the eyebrows, reduce the heaviness of the upper eyelid, and help open the eyes. A brow lift provides practical, long-term improvements.

Eyelid Surgery

Droopy eyelids are a common and frustrating complaint and one of the first cosmetic corrections people consider. The skin around your eyes is thinner than on any other body part. This skin can be easily stretched or damaged and appears to age more quickly than the rest of your face. Factors such as sun exposure, dryness, and the natural loss of skin elasticity further contribute to saggy, droopy eyelids or bags under your eyes.


Whether looking into the mirror or the world, your face is your first and most prominent feature. Genetics, personal habits, the pull of gravity, and sun exposure all contribute to the rate at which facial aging occurs. The results of these stressors can be seen on your face in the form of sagging skin, wrinkles, or heavy jowls. Fortunately, these all can be improved with modern facelift surgical techniques.

Chin Augmentation/ Implants

Chin surgery or genioplasty is ideal for patients with a recessed or small chin, a prominent or protruding chin, or an asymmetric or crooked chin. Performed alone or at the time of a nose job, chin surgery helps to maximize facial balance.

Facial Fat Transfer

As we age, we lose facial volume and our youthful facial shape. This loss can be skeletal and from skin thinning, but much of the volume change is from the decreased amount and descent of facial fat. Surgical facial fat transfer utilizes your body’s own tissues to naturally improve the shape and smoothness of your skin through fat redistribution. Using your own fat, you also avoid the chance of an allergic reaction, with no foreign substance entering your body.

Forehead Lift

The primary goal of a forehead lift is to enhance the way you look by making you appear more rested, alert, and happy. By enhancing the forehead, eyes, and eyelids, we can improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging brows, hooding on the eyelids, and more.

FUE Hair Restoration

Our hairline becomes narrower and higher with time, which can impact self-esteem. Losing about 50-100 hairs daily is normal, but increased loss gradually leads to thinning and balding. About 40% of men notice balding by 40, typically along the frontal hairline, and 85% of men will experience hair loss before age 50.

Lip Enhancement Surgery

Maybe your lips have thinned, or vertical wrinkles have begun to form. Perhaps the corners turn down, and you worry that you are usually perceived as grumpy. There are many options to regain youthful lips, both temporary and permanent, natural and synthetic. Fillers like Restylane and Juvederm provide full, natural-looking lips without incisions or downtime.


Sagging cheeks and deep smile lines are common complaints in men and women as we age. Over time, our once-plump cheeks flatten, and the creases next to the nose and mouth deepen. A midface lift smoothes and lifts the area of the face from the corners of your eyes to the corners of your mouth, including the nose, cheeks, and the area above your upper lip.

Mini-Facelift / Mini Lift

Considering a facelift but worried about recovery time or want a less invasive treatment? Mini-lifts are suited for patients with less excess skin, as the results are less dramatic than a complete facelift. A mini-lift targets the sagging around your cheeks and jawline that can make you look aged, tired, and stressed.

Neck Lift

How often do you forget to extend cream, serum, or sunscreen application down your neck? The delicate skin of the neck is especially vulnerable to the effects of aging, genetics, and environmental influence, but it is often forgotten in regular skincare regimes. Unfortunately, It is ineffective to exercise neck muscles to keep them taut and toned.


Your nose is an essential feature of your face and dramatically impacts your overall appearance, as it is the center of the face. Your nose can either complement a smile and bright eyes or distract from the rest of your features. More than 200,000 rhinoplasties are performed yearly, making this the most common facial plastic surgery procedure.

Skin Resurfacing

Healthy skin is an immediately recognizable indicator of health and youth. Skin is the most resilient part of our bodies, but also one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Even if aging skin is not your concern, perhaps you have scars or acne or are unhappy with texture, redness, or discoloration.

Submental Liposuction

Genetics and cycles of weight gain and loss can leave stubborn fat deposits that diet and exercise may not reduce. A double chin is one of the most common stubborn areas. Submental liposuction can improve the contour of the jawline and area beneath the chin, removing your double chin. For excess skin of the neck, in addition to fullness, a neck lift may be recommended for a more defined look.

I made an appointment for a rhinoplasty consultation with Dr. Ponsky and within the same day I was scheduling my surgery. Dr. Ponsky and her entire team made the process extremely easy and always took my thoughts and opinions into consideration. The team was especially responsive following my rhinoplasty, easily reachable to answer any questions and concerns I had. I am currently 7 months out from my rhinoplasty and the follow through care during my recovery has been outstanding.

Dr Ponsky and all of her staff are incredibly professional and friendly. Ally and Jen, at the front desk, welcomed me with smiles and mints for my 3-year-old. Michael answered all of my questions and was so gentle as we discussed my [unfortunate] nose and potential rhinoplasty. It’s a very vulnerable place to put yourself in so I very much appreciated how they handled it. Dr Ponsky herself is friendly, efficient, and skilled. Everything I look for in a medical professional. I did extensive research prior to scheduling my consult with Dr Ponsky so I had high expectations and I was not disappointed. I have not regretted my rhinoplasty for a moment. Dr Ponsky took my nose and finessed it down to better fit my face. I wanted it to look real and natural, which is exactly what I got. I so appreciate having the before and after pictures from Lauren, the medical photographer. If you’re on the fence and have the funds, just do it. It’s worth it and there is no doctor more qualified than Dr Ponsky (have you seen her resume??). Thank you to Dr Ponsky and everyone at the office. I love seeing you all when I’m back for follow-ups!

Dr. Ponsky performed my rhinoplasty and I could not be happier with the results. After many years of debating of whether to do it or not, I finally made the decision. From the initial consultation to after the surgery, Dr. Ponsky and her team have been nothing but caring and supportive through the whole process. The procedure itself was smooth and with very little to no pain. It almost felt like a head cold for about 3 days but after that, I felt great. They really do a great job at preparing you for it weeks in advance and guide you through the whole thing. If you are considering a rhinoplasty, you will be in great hands with Dr. Ponsky, she is kind and one of the best at her job!
