Dr. Aston’s development of the modern facelift techniques, which produce natural, unoperated results have gained him recognition around the globe. His techniques reposition not just the skin but also the deeper layer of muscles and fascia just beneath the skin of the face and neck. Dr. Aston repositions the deeper plane in every patient, however, variations in each individual patient’s anatomy require different techniques of lifting and repositioning the muscles and fascia to give the most desired, elegant, and natural looking facial rejuvenation.

One of Dr. Aston’s specialties is the closed rhinoplasty technique, which avoids making incisions and scars on the outside of the nose. He is responsible for fixing thousands of noses, both in primary and secondary procedures using the closed rhinoplasty technique. He is invited to lecture plastic surgeons around the world and has written textbook chapters on closed rhinoplasty.
