Dr. Jill L. Hessler is a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon who is dual certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. She has been performing surgery for more than a decade and limits her practice to the surgical refinement of the face and neck. Dr. Hessler has perfected her surgical skills through years of advanced training and experience, during which time she has developed a refined appreciation for the subtleties of facial structure, proportion and aesthetics. Over the course of her career, she has held several prestigious teaching positions, most recently as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Stanford University. Dr. Hessler has trained numerous facial plastic surgeons throughout the country under the auspices of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She frequently lectures on advanced techniques for natural results in facial rejuvenation and is widely regarded as a leader in the field. In addition to serving on the faculty at advanced facial rejuvenation courses nationwide, she also serves as Course Director for the Advanced Techniques in Rhinoplasty course, which brings together leaders in the field to educate an international audience of surgeons. In recognition of her accomplishments, she has received numerous awards, including the Janet Glasgow Women in Medicine Award and a peer-selected "Best Doctors in America" award for four consecutive years.
Dr. Hessler skillfully performs a range of facial plastic surgery treatments, including facelift for both men and women, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and browlift procedures. She is known for her fresh and modern approach, frequently adding sophisticated facial volumization techniques to her facelift surgery for more natural and long-lasting results. Facelift surgery tightens the underlying facial structures and eliminates excess skin to provide a more youthful facial appearance. This can be combined with eyelid surgery, browlift surgery or laser procedures to provide harmony and balance to the face.
Dr. Hessler also offers hair transplant surgery using the individual follicular unit transfer technique, as well as several laser and non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures. Recognizing that some patients may not need or be ready to undergo surgery, she has multiple non-surgical rejuvenation procedures and technologies at her disposal, including the Ulthera "ultrasound facelift" in addition to numerous other lasers and radiofrequency devices.
Dr. Hessler feels the key to a successful surgical outcome is understanding the goals and expectations of the patient. Therefore, she performs all of her own patient consultations, operations and post-operative care, making sure you are taken care of during your entire surgical experience. Procedures are performed at the newly constructed surgery center adjoining her clinical office space or at one of the other accredited facilities in the Bay Area.
