Your Face is Our Specialty

Plastic Surgery Philadelphia

Our medical practice is dedicated solely to plastic surgery of the face and neck.  If you owned a Ferrari, you wouldn't take it to a just local general mechanic would you? You would want someone who specializes in the detail of high performance sports cars!  Since your face is infinitely more valuable to you than a luxury automobile, why would you go anywhere else but a specialist? Dr Christopher Hove specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face- eyelids, brows, nose, lips, cheeks/jowls, ears, and the neck/chin. In addition to plastic surgery procedures, our Philadelphia practice also offers extensive experience in non-surgical treatment options for facial rejuvenation, such as Botox/Dysport, soft-tissue fillers (Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Belotero), and laser/chemical peels.


Dr. Christopher R. Hove

Christopher R. Hove, M.D.

Board Certified- Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

    A highly trained facial plastic surgeon whose work is equal parts skill and artistry, Dr. Christopher Hove understands that every patient comes to him with a unique set of needs and expectations. This is what pushes him to achieve the beautiful balance between art and science in cosmetic surgery. The Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery was founded by Dr. Christopher Hove who recognized the need for exceptional services in facial plastic surgery in the Main Line of Pennsylvania. He is double board certified- in facial plastic surgery and also in head/neck surgery. Originally a native of the Main Line, Dr. Hove founded and developed a facial plastic surgery practice in Southern California, then relocated it to Paoli, bringing with him 16 years of surgical experience and techniques in facial rejuvenation found on the west coast.

    Dr. Hove feels so strongly about providing exceptional care in the face, that he dedicates his skills solely to the most visible representation of you: your face. He does not offer breast implants, abdominoplasty (tummy tucks), or body liposuction because he feels the face is such a specialized area of anatomy that it deserves undivided focus. He considers the facelift, rhinoplasty (“nosejob”), and eyelid lifts his specialty. Additionally, Dr. Hove offers extensive experience in non-invasive treatments to smooth wrinkles with products such as Botox and Dysport, and help fill lost volume with the popular fillers Restylane, Juvederm, and Radiesse. In fact, Dr. Hove is one of the first select few facial plastic surgeons in the country to use Juvederm- he participated in its clinical research trials before it was publicly available.

    Dr. Hove's personal attention will make you feel comfortable, confident, and fully informed throughout your procedure. More than just a skilled surgeon (one of only an elite few board certified facial plastic surgeons on Philadelphia's Main Line), Dr. Hove appreciates the value of honesty and integrity. In fact, he has made those ideals the foundation of his practice philosophy.

Dr. Hove regularly performs surgery at the state-of-the-art operating rooms of Paoli Memorial Hospital (a branch of the Main Line Health system), an institution continually recognized for its outstanding quality of care.
