Whether it is changing a feature on your face you have never been happy with or reducing signs of aging to help restore confidence in your appearance, facial cosmetic surgery can make a dramatic difference in your life. In many cases, it can totally transform both the way you look and feel about yourself.
Facial cosmetic surgery ranges from the more complex face lifting procedures to smaller, less involved ones such as collagen injections. Dr. Pasquale has extensive experience in all types of facial plastic surgery and skin care, and he can offer a wide selection of techniques to help enhance your appearance. The choice of procedures will be dependent on many factors: your desired results, your skin type and condition, your budget, and the amount of recovery time you are considering.
Dr. Pasquale is a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has completed not only full residency training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, but also an additional two years of training in the subspecialty of cosmetic surgery. Since then, his many years of private practice have only perfected these skills. Of special note, as a practicing cosmetic surgeon in Hawaii, Dr. Pasquale has particular expertise working with Asian facial features and has an in-depth understanding of the Asian concept of beauty. With this unique background, he is able to help both Asians and non-Asians alike achieve the beautiful and natural looking facial results they desire.

Our practice is proud to offer patients a state-of-the-art surgical facility equipped with the latest in advanced technology. Our cutting edge equipment includes the Ultrapulse CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser, used for laser skin resurfacing, as well as extensive monitoring and video equipment in each surgery room. In addition to laser treatment, patients can also choose from radio frequency energy or intense pulsed light therapy with the following two technologies, both available at our practice.
Thermacool TC™ (Thermage)
Imagine having younger, more vibrant skin free of wrinkles and folds—without surgery. The revolutionary new ThermaCool TC system uses special radio frequency energy to perform non-surgical face lifts. The machine works by heating the collagen in the inner layers of the skin while keeping the outer layers cool with a refreshing spray. The heat tightens the collagen, giving the skin the added support of face lift with no incisions and virtually no recovery time. To learn more about ThermaCool TC, please contact our office today.
Prolite Fluorescent Pulsed Light System
Prolite is an innovative skin care system that uses intense pulsed fluorescent light to effectively treat a number of skin conditions, from rosacea and unsightly facial veins to unwanted hair or skin pigmentation. During treatment, intense pulsed light from the Prolite machine enters and breaks up pigment in the targeted area, without overheating or harming the surrounding skin. The Prolite system can also be customized to filter out specific light wavelengths, depending on a patient’s skin type and on the skin problem being treated. Prolite treatments are simple, involve little to no discomfort, and provide dramatic improvement to the look of your skin. To find out more about the Prolite system and the many treatment options with it, please contact the practice of Dr. Pasquale today.
If you are comparing the prices for a face lift or other facial cosmetic procedures, make sure you know what the quote you receive from your surgeon includes. (Plastic surgeons typically charge more than other specialists who also may perform facial cosmetic procedures because of their additional training.) When evaluating a fee quote, be sure to consider the following points:
- Is it simply the surgeon’s fee? Does it include anesthesia and, if so, what type?
- The price of facial cosmetic procedures varies widely depending on the type of procedure chosen. To give you some idea, a face lift, on average, can cost from $5,000 to $10,000 U.S. dollars. Anything less and you need to question why it is so inexpensive. (Does the surgeon need the experience so he/she lowers the price?) Obviously, less involved procedures – those that do not, for example, require general anesthesia or full surgery – will cost less.
- Ask your surgeon what the arrangements are if a revision is needed. Will he or she charge you a full fee or just cost? Although revisions are generally not common, they are a possibility and it is important to understand how your surgeon will charge you for them.
There are websites that promise very cheap prices, but remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Can you put a price tag on your health?

Prices differ amongst procedures and may also depend on the surgical techniques you require.
