Before and After Photos

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

As the old saying goes: the eyes are the windows to the soul… but sometimes they need some window dressing. If your eyelids are sagging or if you have accumulated unwanted wrinkles and fat deposits (bags) under your eyes, Dr. Clayton can help. Consider the benefits of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to raise your perspective. 

Ptosis Correction

Ptosis is a medical term for the drooping that affects our bodies over time. In this case, eyelid ptosis can add bulk and distraction to your appearance. By contouring the eyelids delicately and precisely, Dr. Clayton can reduce ptosis and bring balance back to your face.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

If your lower lids hang away from the eye, it can cause dryness and discomfort. Bags may also collect in your later years, creating a weary or worried expression, even when you are perfectly happy! To address these issues, Dr. Clayton can reduce lower eyelid puffiness and align your overall look.

Facial Surgery

Facial Surgery

As our bodies age, they produce less collagen and elastin. These are the building blocks of healthy, taut skin. As the scaffolding beneath the surface of our skin erodes, wrinkles and gaps occur. Dr. Clayton can treat these with Botox and dermal fillers, but you may also benefit from the long-term boost of facial surgery.


Let’s face it: fat tends to build up where we want it least. For example, it may clump together along your jowls while your cheeks become deflated over time. There is no workout routine or special diet that can move fat to exactly where you need it to go, which is why a facelift may be the perfect remedy

By removing unwanted fat and contouring the skin along your face, Dr. Clayton can enhance your attractive features without compromising your identity. A younger you is staring out from behind your skin, just waiting to emerge. Book a consultation at Clayton Plastic Surgery to unleash your ideal self!

Brow/Forehead Lift

If wrinkles and loose skin tend to gather along your upper face, perhaps you do not need a comprehensive facelift, but rather a brow lift. Dr. Clayton can smooth away deep creases and tone the appearance of your forehead. He begins by making a few concealed incisions and accessing the unwanted fat beneath the surface. After removing the bulk, he sutures the incisions along your hairline, leaving only a striking profile behind.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

In addition to their complex sensory functions, your ears can provide symmetry and dimension to your face. But, when imbalance makes one ear bigger than the other, or if both ears protrude farther from your head than you prefer, an otoplasty may be in order. Otoplasty is a straightforward, yet transformative, procedure that contours your ears and brings harmony to your appearance. Dr. Clayton is an ear surgery expert, providing the shape and size you have always desired. To tune in to the sounds of ear perfection, call (801) 937-9650. One of our friendly, knowledgeable staff members will direct your call and usher you toward your next-level looks.

Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)

Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)

The neck is often the most obvious place where aging appears. Every time you turn your head, loose skin crumples and contorts to facilitate your movement. Even when you are facing straight ahead, a “turkey wattle” may hang from your neck, disrupting the elegant flow from your chest to your face. 

Dr. Clayton can rejuvenate your neck and allow it to twist, turn, and stretch without compromising your striking good looks! By reducing excess skin and removing unwanted fat, Dr. Clayton will tighten the overall aesthetic of your neck. In addition to making you look great, a neck lift at Clayton Plastic Surgery will make you feel wonderful.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

The most prominent feature on your face should reflect your optimal profile. A nose job (rhinoplasty) procedure can contour your silhouette to the exact specifications that you demand. 

Open Rhinoplasty

To reshape your nose in remarkable ways, an open rhinoplasty may be the best approach. Dr. Clayton can gently access the cartilage that shapes the bridge of your nose, contouring it to create a symmetrical signature look.

Closed Rhinoplasty

If you desire a more subtle transformation, closed rhinoplasty is ideal. Dr. Clayton will conceal his incisions inside the nostrils, gently trimming and tweaking the dimensions of your nose from within.


While many rhinoplasty surgeries are designed to enhance the look of the nose, others are performed to improve its functionality. A septoplasty manipulates the septum, which is the thin ridge of tissue that separates your nostrils. By aligning the septum to its preferred declination, Dr. Clayton will help you breathe easy!

Benefits of Facial Enhancement

Aesthetic benefits yield psychological rewards. When your face exudes the glow you desire, your confidence will swell accordingly. Clayton Plastic Surgery performs facial cosmetic procedures that celebrate your natural structure and elevate your best features

Private Consultation in Utah

Enhancement is a journey. A consultation with Dr. Clayton is the opportunity to guide your own quest to be the best! Be ready to share your medical history so we can get a better understanding of your past. Only then can we chart the ideal future for your evolving appearance.

Your consultation will be tailored to your wellness needs and aesthetic goals. While this process is intimate and unique, you can get a sense of how overwhelmingly satisfied our past patients have been by checking out their glowing reviews. Clayton Plastic Surgery is humbled by the kind words in these reviews, and we vow to continue providing 5-star service to our Utah friends and neighbors.

Preparation and Procedures

During the consultation period, Dr. Clayton will suggest how best to prepare for your facial enhancement procedure. Each treatment is contoured to the patient’s features, so the process will vary from case to case. 

To discuss the specifics of your upcoming cosmetic surgery, please call (801) 937-9650 and connect with one of the caring Clayton Plastic Surgery team members. We have your best interest at heart and your ideal face within view.

Recovery and Results

Every procedure entails a different recovery process. Eyelid surgery, for example, involves relatively little downtime, while a facelift requires at least two weeks of focused healing. Please follow Dr. Clayton’s advice regarding recovery protocols and restrictions.

In general, avoid strenuous activity for the first few days after any surgical procedure. Any discomfort that may occur can be managed through ice packs and medications, as Dr. Clayton prescribes. Routine swelling will gradually subside as your ravishing new contours emerge!

Complementary Procedures

As you achieve your ideal look from the neck up, you may be inspired to extend the improvement further south. Liposuction can gently remove unwanted fat cells by vacuuming them from your “problem areas” like thighs and love handles. 

Complementary Procedures Facial Surgery

Once the fat is safely and effectively removed, you can put it to great use with a fat transfer at Clayton Plastic Surgery. Your medical team can purify your own fat cells and re-insert them to the areas where they will add volume and dimension. For example, imagine extracting bulky fat from the belly area and plumping your hands to prevent them from looking skeletal and frail.

If loose skin is more your issue, consider the benefits of a body lift. Dr. Clayton can contour your physique by removing unwanted fat, as described above. He then trims away unflattering skin and re-drapes it to adhere to your slim, sleek shape.

Regardless of which enhancement procedures best accentuate your attributes, Dr. Clayton can help. Contact Clayton Plastic Surgery to begin your journey to a confident new you!
