Serving the greater Main Line area, Dr. Christopher Hove, Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon at the Hove Center, offers patients over 20 years of facial plastic surgery skill and artistry. The Hove Center team understand that each patient comes with a unique set of needs and expectations, and they tend to each individual with attentive listening and dedicated care.
What Are Some Facial Plastic Procedures Available at The Hove Center?
Dr. Hove offers extensive experience in noninvasive treatments to smooth wrinkles using products such as Botox and Dysport and has earned an excellent reputation working with facial fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm, RHA, and Radiesse. In fact, he was one of the first select few facial plastic surgeons in the country to use Juvederm in clinical research trials before it was publicly available.
Some of the available procedures at the Hove Center are:
• Fillers: Lip augmentation, jawline definition, cheek enhancement, wrinkles
• Botox: Dysport
• Upper and lower eyelift
• Face, Brow and Neck lift
• Rhinoplasty (Nose correction)
• Fractional laser treatments

Dr. Hove’s favorite procedure, however, is the Hove Contour© Facelift, a procedure that he developed. In addition to his skill as a surgeon, he has an artistic eye, and sees his patients through the lens of an illustrator and artist.
What Exactly Is the Hove Contour© Facelift?
The Hove Contour© Facelift is an innovative new approach to facelifts. Over the past twenty years, Dr. Hove has perfected his technique. He combines multiple strategies to achieve more finessed, younger, and natural-looking results. To understand the Hove Contour© Facelift, it is perhaps best to look at what Dr. Hove says about it: “I like to think of it as the latest advancement in facelift technology. The face is three-dimensional, so the Hove Contour© combines the traditional surgical facelift procedure with specialized volume enhancement using fillers along with the reduction of unwanted volume by lipectomy. It is basically like creating art using the best qualities of multiple media: painting, drawing, sculpting, rather than just one single modality.”
Are You A Good Candidate For The Hove Contour© Facelift?
The Hove Contour requires patients to meet specific criteria — mental preparedness is critical, as well as compatible physical features and appropriate expectations. To ensure that the patients will experience success, Dr. Hove and his team thoroughly evaluate every patient to assess whether they’re a good candidate. Dr. Hove says, “We must listen to each patient about their needs and expectations and make sure our goals align. In the interest of patient care and ensuring our high standards are maintained, we require all our patients to meet specific criteria for all our facial cosmetic procedures. This ensures our patients are healthy, informed, and have clear expectations of results. Every patient is different, and we respect those differences. Not everyone qualifies for this type of rejuvenation. This in-depth interaction is why we enjoy such long-term relationships with our patients – it is a great source of pride for all of us at the Hove Center.”
One example of a patient’s long-term relationship with the team at the Hove Center is Val, an amateur competitive golfer. Val says she was excited about the Hove Contour© procedure because it made total sense to tighten the skin and restore her youthful contours. “I was so ready for this! I wanted to look soft, not ‘stretched’ like some of the women I see at the country clubs. It is really a fabulous, natural look that is going to last me forever. Can’t beat that. Dr. Hove is a genius. And I know he hears that all the time.”
Golfer Val, Before Hove Contour© Facelift ….. and 4 weeks after.
“Dr. Hove really listened to me and my concerns. I felt 40 but looked 60. The Hove Contour© was the perfect solution for me – and I love the very natural result. I look 15 years younger now and am really enjoying the compliments. I feel better too. I am very grateful to Dr. Hove for his exquisite work.”
“The Hove Contour was so much more than a facelift, it was a life lift.” -Val. Golfer, Teacher, Mom.
So, If You’re Considering A Hove Contour © Facelift, What Should You Expect?
You can expect to have seven office visits over the course of the Hove Contour© Facelift. Here’s a general outline of how they unfold.
Visit one: In-office in-depth consultation with Dr. Hove and your personal concierge to formulate your unique plan for your face, with simulated before/after photos using digital imaging (that’s the fun part patients love!)
Visit two: In-office pre-operative evaluation and briefing, confirming strategy with Dr. Hove and his staff.
Visit three: Surgery Center: Facelift + facial contouring with Dr. Hove and his experienced surgical team.
Visit four: In-office day after procedure check-up and dressing changes.
Visit five: One-week check-up after the procedure
Visit six: One-month check-up after the procedure
Visit seven: Two-month check-up after the procedure
After the Hove Contour© Facelift, patients still look like themselves, only fresher and younger. They do not look like a person who has had ‘work.’ The combination of a surgical facelift with noninvasive dermal fillers like Juvéderm and Restylane really does achieve remarkable results.
