About Dr. Little

Internationally-recognized 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 and eyelid volume through fat grafting, and aging skin repair.  He has famously advocated a sculptural or architectural (shape-based) approach to such rejuvenation over a traditional tensioned one.  He is among the most sought-after speakers on these topics world-wide and has delivered more than one thousand invited lectures and courses 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 enjoys extensive experience in a wide range of techniques in facial rejuvenation, which he discusses throughout the site; 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 must be presented full-size for proper contrast.  His highly-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 (regularly neglected during facelift); the full redraping of loose skin (which remains limited in many facelifts); the complete elimination of many of the routine scars of facelift and eyelid surgery; the complete avoidance of tension during facelift; the pursuit of especially long-lasting results for most patients; a long-term focus on secondary or repeat facelift, with its special challenges; and the restoration of hollow, empty eyes (with or without fat bags) by expert micro fat grafting alone.
