Charleston’s Facelift Surgeon
Dr. Joseph Russell is a Charleston native who grew up on James Island. He has a passion for excellence in everything he does, as evidenced by his graduation Summa Cum Laude from both college and medical school. These accolades led to a five-year residency in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery.
Following his residency graduation, he embarked on a one-year fellowship in facial plastic surgery to master the intricacies of deep-plane facelift and rhinoplasty techniques. Upon completion of all his training in 2017, he returned to the Charleston area, where he practices today.
Dr. Russell is a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. He is board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.
Deep Plane Facelift
Dr. Joseph Russell provides advanced treatments for aging faces, including deep plane facelifts, brow lifts, eyelid lifts, and laser skin resurfacing.
For years I wanted a facelift but was hesitant. I heard many horror stories. However, after a consultation with Dr. Russell I made the decision to go forward with the procedure. His calm, caring, and friendly demeanor assuaged my fears. Dr. Russell explained the procedure in detail. My recovery period was exactly as he prepared me for, no surprises at any point. No pain medications were necessary, not even Tylenol. I am very pleased with the results of my facelift. Dr. Russell’s staff is courteous and professional. He is an excellent plastic surgeon whom I highly recommend.Ann
Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)
Dr. Joseph Russell performs Rhinoplasty through a closed approach having all incisions inside the nose or an open approach requiring a small incision across the base of the nose. Each patient’s nose is a case by case basis.
A Message from Dr. Russell
My patient-care philosophy is simple — I treat my patients the way I would like to be treated as a patient myself. In practice, this means that when you come in for a consultation, I will give you my honest assessment of your areas of concern, and then discuss with you the options for you to consider, whether surgical or non-surgical.
So much of our sense of self is found in our faces, so when you are considering making a change to your face, I feel that you should understand the procedures you are interested in and consider your options carefully. I will let you know what I think the best options are, but I will also let you know of any potential downsides to consider with a particular treatment, so that you can make an informed decision.
I personally disdain high-pressure sales tactics when I am considering a purchase, so you will not be subjected to any of that as a patient in my practice. At the conclusion of our consultation, my patient care coordinator will provide you with pricing and scheduling information for the treatments we have discussed, but no immediate decision will be sought from you.
Occasionally, I will see patients who I believe are better off not having any procedure at all, and if I find that to be true in your case, I will let you know.
My goal is to always do the very best I can for every one of my patients. I have no students, residents, or fellows in my practice – I personally perform every aspect of all my procedures, from first cut to last stitch. I enjoy the meticulous attention to detail that my craft requires, but even more, I love producing stunning before-and-after transformations for my patients. As you browse through the various procedure pages on this site, you will see many of these before and after examples from some of my patients who were kind enough to let me share them with you.
