Dr. Keefe has a passion towards helping patients achieve their goals for a more natural, refreshed appearance by utilizing all the tools now available to surgeons and physicians. While many practices have added cosmetic lasers to their treatments and procedures lists, patients of Dr. Keefe's can rest in the knowledge that for over twenty-five years Dr. Keefe has been on the cutting edge of innovation and technique in the field of lasers as part of an integral team of surgeons adapting radio-frequency lasers to the field of head and neck surgery. His technique was filmed and distributed to surgery centers nationwide and he also authored safety protocol for the use of lasers in outpatient surgery centers for US Surgical Partners and Catholic Healthcare West.
In addition, as one of the first group of ENT doctors selected nationwide, Dr. Keefe trained on newly developed instrumentation to use for sinus surgery called Balloon Sinuplasty, now considered standard of care for the treatment of chronic sinus problems and the first in the area to adopt it to in-office use.
Dr. Keefe maintains a philosophy of “if it doesn’t look natural, it doesn’t look good” for each and every cosmetic patient. He provides everything from traditional facelifts, to LA Lifts (face/neck/eyelids/brow lifts done without using general anesthesia), and rhinoplasty, to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, skin rejuvenating laser procedures, Botox, fillers, and injectables. “By combining various treatments, staging and planning for the best result, we’re able to achieve natural-looking, personalized results for our patients in Fishersville, Staunton, Lexington, Charlottesville, and throughout the Shenandoah Valley.“
