Pittsburgh plastic surgeon, Dr. James Fernau, works with area men to help them “look the part” in the business world. His unique suite of cosmetic procedures, known as the “Executive Edge”, are combined and tailored to help men enhance their appearance and look renewed and distinguished. These cosmetic procedures improve skin irregularities that can be caused by life in general (including age, smoking, stress, and weight loss), as well as offer a sharper, more chiseled appearance. Each patient case is unique and may contain both surgical and nonsurgical procedures.

"Dr. Fernau and his staff are amazing! In June 2018 I had a no drain lipoabdominoplasty and the results are better than I ever could have imagined. During the consultation, I was given the options based on what I wanted to accomplish and Dr. Fernau was very honest with me in which procedures would get me the best results. In deciding to go through with the tummy tuck, Sheila was a wealth of knowledge in going over the paper work and preoperative procedures. On the day of the surgery at Trinity Hospital (and their staff was amazing too!), I was nervous, but knew I was in good hands because of how thorough and meticulous Dr. Fernau was before we went into the room for surgery. After surgery I couldn't believe how good I felt and already looked! The recovery process was much better than expected (I never took a pain pill!). I was walking pretty much normal after a week and back to normal activities within 6 weeks. My life has changed completely due to this procedure and the wonderful results thanks to Dr. Fernau. I am continuing to workout and watch my diet and after 5 months post-op I am down 20 pounds and look like a whole knew person! I highly recommend Dr. Fernau and his staff. They are truly AMAZING!"- A. / Google / Nov 26, 2018

Suite of Procedures
During the initial consultation with Dr. Fernau, a customized procedure plan is created to meet the patient’s aesthetic goals. Using a combination of approaches, men can look and feel more confident. Some of the procedures that may be combined in the Executive Edge include:
A wrinkle relaxer, such as BOTOX, Dysport and Xeomin, helps smooth fine lines and wrinkles that appear on the upper face. They are most commonly used on the forehead and around the eyes.
A wrinkle filler is also referred to as an injectable filler. Comprised of various substances ranging from collagen to hyaluronic acid, the primary purpose of a filler is to create additional volume under the skin where volume has been depleted due to age. The result is a smoother surface and a fresher looking appearance. Fillers can be used in various areas on the face including under the eyes, in the cheeks, lips, laugh lines, and chin. Dr. Fernau is proud to offer a number of fillers, including: Voluma, Belotero, Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Dr. Fernau also performs fat transfers, which takes fat from one area of the body and transfers it to the face, which some prefer as it is an autologous approach.
In addition to injectables, Dr. Fernau also offers various treatments to help even out the skin tone and reduce the appearance of skin irregularities. Some men may benefit from having a skin resurfacing laser treatment, a chemical peel or dermabrasion.
Dr. Fernau performs all of his procedures in an accredited facility. Because the Executive Edge comprises numerous procedures, some of which may be surgical and others nonsurgical, the entire procedure process may be planned out over several staged sessions. In general, most of the nonsurgical treatments have limited, if any, downtime. Facial surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia and may require a 7-10 day period of recovery. Over the course of weeks and months, as each procedure is completed, patients will see noticeable improvements. Men that have the Executive Edge comment that they look and feel younger and more confident overall.
Each Executive Edge procedure plan is tailored for the patient and provides a detailed breakdown of all expenses. The Executive Edge will vary in cost depending on how many surgical techniques or facial rejuvenation treatments are combined.
