The Delta Facelift and Neck Lift

Dr. Grotting has developed a simplified facial rejuvenation procedure known as the Delta Facelift which creates a much more natural outcome because, among other benefits, it avoids overstretching of the skin. He commonly uses small amounts of tummy or hip fat to smooth out some of the creases and depressions around the mouth, the dark circles under the eyes, and even the temples and lips. His Vertical Neck Lift is also a tremendous advancement in plastic surgery and is what its name implies. Working in his innovative vertical manner makes the neck much more youthful without a stretched look.

James C. Grotting, MD, FACS


This man is amazing. He’s a true artist and did such a fantastic job on my breast augmentation. I’m beyond appreciative of the detail he put into speaking with me, the procedure, and far after my surgery. He also doesn’t try to sell you on anything, make a consultation with him if you’re considering a procedure and trust that he will tell you the truth and not just be looking out for his pocket book.
