Regardless of which facial feature needs attention, Dr. Eugenie Brunner of Princeton has a method to suit any issue and any lifestyle.

Brunner, a Princeton resident, specializes in facial plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation. She treats clients of all ages and offers a wide variety of both surgical and non-surgical procedures.

After studying at the Parsons School of Design, Brunner found her niche in facial plastic surgery. She studied head and neck surgery at Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and completed her residency at New York University. Afterwards, Brunner made her way into facial plastics by completing a fellowship at the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Toronto.

In 1997, Brunner opened her own office and said she has been loving her work.

“I love the whole gestalt of facial rejuvenation,” she said.

“I love all aspects of it, I think I have a great job,” Brunner said, “It’s artistic, progressive and it makes people happy.”

Typically, she completes a couple of surgeries and sees about 40 patients in the office each week.

She treats clients as young as teenagers, who come to her for acne trouble or rhinoplasty.

Brunner offers a variety of services including facelifts and mini facelifts, neck lifts, eye lifts and brow lifts, chin or cheek implants, otoplasty and cosmetic, reconstruction or revision nasal surgery.

Additionally, Brunner can attend to acne scars, sun damage, skin tightening and wrinkle removal, laser hair removal and can treat spider veins, brown spots or facial blood vessels through her skin rejuvenation laser center.

During the one-hour personalized consultation, Brunner and her patient will sit together and look in the mirror to more clearly visualize the patients needs and wants. It is very important to Brunner to understand how much recovery time each client’s lifestyle allows. Different procedures can be done in different ways to minimize or nearly eliminate recovery time, if necessary.

In addition to these services, Brunner recently hired Veni Chernev, an aesthetician who has served the Mercer County area for nearly 20 years.

Cherney offers services such as facial peels, microderm abrasion, waxing and electrolysis. These services can both supplement or compliment Dr. Brunner’s procedures.

“We’re able to work together to benefit the patients,” Brunner said.

Following the procedures, the clients will meet with Brunner as many times as needed, to ensure satisfaction.

Dr. Brunner’s office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m. The aesthetician is also available on Saturdays. Brunner’s office is located at 256 Bunn Drive, Suite 4 in Princeton. For more information, call (609) 921-9497. On the Web: brunnermd.com.
