Have you heard the phrase “dressed to the nines”? It’s an old English phrase and means dressed “to perfection”. Top to bottom perfection – collar to cuffs, hair to hemline. At Azul we believe your facial rejuvenation should also be “to the nines”! But sometimes our patients only want to go part of the way when it comes to rejuvenation, taking care of one area but not the other. Kind of like a gorgeous dress with scuffed up shoes.
That’s why Dr. Flaharty has created what he calls Harmonious Rejuvenation, a comprehensive approach to rejuvenation of the entire face and neck in a single surgical session.
Four sisters who have all had Harmonious Rejuvenation with Dr. Flaharty.
What is Harmonious Rejuvenation?
Dr. Flaharty evaluates aging of the entire face and neck during a consultation. He relies upon his exceptional training and over 20 years of experience to determine which procedures are needed to deliver the best rejuvenation result – not overdone and not under-done. As a board-certified physician with fellowships in both facial plastic surgery and facial cosmetic surgery, he is perfectly suited to provide patients with a refreshed, natural look.
In developing his Harmonious Rejuvenation approach, he realized that his happiest patients were not happy with the way just one area looked, they loved their entire look! In fact, they loved it so much it changed the way they felt inside. They felt younger, happier, more energetic or competitive – in a word – better!
By treating the entire face and neck as one he was able to restore a harmonious youthfulness they could see in the mirror every day. Dr. Flaharty firmly believes that having a single procedure, say a mid-face lift, yet leaving your heavy, hooded brows only draws attention to those aging brows even more.
Harmonious Rejuvenation simply combines all the necessary surgical procedures (and sometimes non-surgical procedures) into a single surgery session. This makes for a single recovery rather than multiple recoveries after ongoing single-procedure surgeries. Also, by combining surgeries, patients can save money on anesthesia and facility fees, and on surgical fees where procedures overlap.
Bottom line? Our eyes, jowls, faces and necks age as one. Harmonious Rejuvenation recognizes this and seeks to rejuvenate everything in one surgery. It gives you a harmonious look with all the components of your face and neck looking the same (younger!) age.

Benefits of Performing Multiple Facial Procedures at Once
Yes, you could opt for separate procedures: a brow lift, eyelid surgery, facelift, neck lift, fat augmentation for volume loss, and laser skin resurfacing. But even if you could do it, that would mean multiple anesthesia fees, facility fees, and surgical fees. And it means multiple recoveries and much more downtime away from your normal life.
Dr. Flaharty often relates Harmonious Rejuvenation to symmetry. He creates symmetry of a younger you from your eyes, brows, face and neck – and harmonizes that with younger looking skin tone and texture.
Who is a good candidate to have Harmonious Rejuvenation?
Not every patient will need every procedure. But that’s where Dr. Flaharty’s 20+ years of performing facial plastic surgery comes into play. During your consultation he will discuss the area that bothers you most as well as the any other areas that are important to an overall harmonious result. You may think it’s you upper lids, only to find out that it’s your brows. Or perhaps you think you need a lower face lift, only to find you need fat augmentation. A good candidate needs to be open to thinking differently about rejuvenation.
What is the goal of this approach?
The goal of this approach is simple – give patients the best result possible. By creating a Harmonious Rejuvenation, Dr. Flaharty is able to turn back the clock. Not just lift the upper lids or tighten the jaw line – actually turn back the clock. And it all looks so natural because all the components send the same “younger” message. There is no dis-harmony from facial components that no longer fit with each other because one has been lifted and the others have not. There’s also a personal benefit for Dr. Flaharty . . . patients are happier. They have nothing “old” to dwell on and they love their new look, so they’re happy and love that!
Some surgeons might want their patients to come back every year or two to lift one thing or another, but that’s not our approach. We would rather wow you with one wonderful Harmonious Rejuvenation and hope to see you back for HydraFacials!
WHAT DR. FLAHARTY’S PATIENTS SAY
“Dr. Flaharty is not just a great plastic surgeon, he is a caring individual.
It takes a lot of trust to let someone operate on your face. If something goes wrong you don’t have a lot of recourse. That is why I spent a great deal of time researching and doing my due diligence. When I sat down to talk with Dr. Flaharty, he listened.
He discussed my options. He also explained in great length what I should and should not do. He even held me back when he thought it was not in my best interest. Go figure….. He was right. I am ecstatic with my results. Doc you are great.
Also the staff is great….they are friendly, caring and supportive. I have received facials and some laser treatments and am extremely pleased. Thanks to all.” ~ Debbie M.
How cost-effective is combining procedures?
As mentioned above, there are financial savings by combining multiple procedures into a single session:
- Anesthesia is required only for a single session
- Facility fees are charged only for a single session
- Surgical fees can be less as procedures can overlap
Physically, there are also savings, so to speak. Yes, having the majority of your face and neck addressed will create a more difficult recovery than a single procedure would involve. But that’s also the beauty — it is only a single recovery although you had multiple procedures. One recovery and your entire face and neck will be fully rejuvenated.
