About Dr. Little

Facelift and fat-grafting specialist J. William Little, M.D., F.A.C.S. of Washington, D.C. is a Harvard-educated, board-certified plastic surgeon who limits his practice to plastic surgery of the aging face: facelift and neck lift, restoration of the aging eyes (blepharoplasty) and aging mouth, return of lost facial volume through fat grafting, and aging skin repair.  He has long advocated a sculptural or architectural (shape-based) approach to such rejuvenation, for which he is widely recognized in his field; he is a frequent invited lecturer to plastic surgeons at home and abroad.  Learn More »

About the Site

The website is designed to be more informational than promotional (media recognitions, magazine lists, patient testimonials, and the like are omitted); Preview Rapid ResultsRapid Preview of Results » it is presented for prospective patients seeking detailed information about facial aging and its reversal.

Dr. Little has extensive experience in a wide range of techniques in facial rejuvenation; he presents in depth the approach he has come to prefer and thoroughly documents its effectiveness through extensive photography (more than 250 before-and-after comparisons from nearly 100 patients)–key data, he believes, for the proper evaluation of any technique.  He feels that such results should be presented full-size for proper comparison.  His specialized before-and-after results must, therefore, be viewed on the larger screens of desk- or lap-top computers; sorry, they will not play on smaller portable devices.  View more results »

In his pursuit of the most effective and natural results for his patients, Dr. Little remains especially committed to:  the elimination of the jowl and marionette lines (which may persist after many facelifts); the re-elevation and rejuvenation of the aging, fallen mouth (often neglected during facelift); the full redraping of loose skin (which may be limited in many facelifts); the elimination of many of the routine scars of facelift and eyelid surgery; the avoidance of tension during facelift; the achievement of long-lasting results in most patients; and a focus on secondary or repeat facelift, with its special challenges.
