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.

"Turning 41 this year and being active my whole life I started to realize areas that were always lean began to have fat deposits. I began to look for a remedy. I found Doctor Fernau on an internet search of top plastic surgeons in Pittsburgh. After reading hundreds of positive reviews I decided to make an appointment. When I first walked in the office I was greeted by his staff. During my consultation I found Doctor Fernau to be really down to earth. He answered every question I had and made suggestions of what my options were. I decided to have abdominal etching, liposuction of my love handles, and some fat grafting using the Hydrosolv form of liposuction. The day of surgery I was visited by Dr. Fernau and went over each step of the operation. During this time I asked Dr. Fernau if some of the fat taken could be placed into my calves. With out hesitation Dr. Fernau made this happen. I'm currently 6 weeks post op and couldnt be more satisfied. He's a skilled surgeon, but most importantly he honestly makes you feel like you matter. Any one looking to have any type of cosmetic/reconstructive surgery Dr. Fernau should not only be first on your list, but the only one on your list."- D.A. / Google / May 09, 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.
