As a facial plastic surgeon in the Philadelphia area for more than 25 years, Dr. Wulc has mastered the artistry of facial surgery. He has also performed and taught his techniques in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures all over the world.
Dr. Ted Kline leads a healthy, active lifestyle. He eats well. He exercises. He’s never smoked. But as Ted entered his late 50s and early 60s, he became increasingly aware of his drooping eyelids. After giving serious thought to the idea of cosmetic surgery, Ted decided to consult with his longtime friend and colleague, Dr. Allan Wulc of W Cosmetic Surgery.
“I’ve known Dr. Wulc for years, and I have always admired his meticulous surgical technique and sense of artistry,” said Ted. “He has a great bedside manner and an unwavering conviction that excellent patient care is job one.”
One of Ted’s concerns is common from men who are considering cosmetic surgery: he didn’t want to trade visible signs of age for conspicuous signs of cosmetic surgery. He was familiar with photos of celebrities and public figures where it was apparent that they’ve had some work done. That was exactly what Ted hoped to avoid. “I wanted to look natural but refreshed,” said Ted. “That’s precisely the approach Dr. Wulc pursued, and it’s one of the reasons he is so well respected.”
Once Ted made the decision to have surgery, he met with Dr. Wulc and his nurse Debbie Tuccillo. Over several appointments they addressed his concerns and developed a plan. “ Initially, I felt a little shy about discussing it, but Dr. Wulc and his staff made it very comfortable for me to do so.”
The literal artistry of a great cosmetic surgeon is a key to making corrections that appear natural. Being a bit of a renaissance man , as well as a long-time painter and sculptor, Dr. Wulc uses techniques similar to those of a visual artist, and he blends them with his surgical skills. Like an illustrator or figure painter, Dr. Wulc studied several photographs of Ted when he was in his 20s and 30s. This provided a better understanding of Ted’s baseline anatomy, and it served as an important reference for making corrections to Ted’s eyes that appeared natural.
In addition to looking at photos of a younger Ted, Dr. Wulc took numerous photographs and made detailed measurements of Ted’s face. Most importantly, they asked him what he wanted to achieve with the surgery, as realistic expectations are crucial to a good surgical outcome.”
“Dr. Wulc and Debbie spent a great deal of time with me,” said Ted. “They showed genuine concern for my wellbeing. Additionally, they are meticulous in preparing you for the surgical procedure and recovery. This is so important, as it’s the teamwork between patient and physician that leads to the desired outcome.”
Throughout the entire experience–which also included face tightening and cheek filler–Dr. Wulc and his staff put the patient first, and they were easily reached when questions arose. Ted’s follow-up care included daily contact, selfie photographs to track progress, and regular office evaluations beginning two days after the surgery. Nurse Tuccillo even called on Christmas day to see how Ted was feeling.
Ted returned to work pleased with the results and confident in his natural appearance. He got exactly what he was looking for: an improved appearance that was simply and authentically him. It didn’t create the unwanted attention that might come from a more obvious change.
When people notice a difference without knowing the difference. That, according to Ted, is the highest praise a cosmetic surgeon can get.

Facial Reconstructive Surgery
Facial reconstructive surgery is highly individualized based on the complex nature of the problem. Find out more about what falls under the realm of facial reconstruction and learn more about available treatment options.
If you are not getting the best results from lip fillers alone and want a more permanent way to rejuvenate and enhance your lips, a lip lift may be a great option for you. A lip lift can create the appearance of volume and address a long upper lip (the vertical distance between the base of your nose and upper lip).
Your own fat can be used as a filler. Liposculpture utilizes fat taken from any problem area and puts it somewhere more useful. Fat is generally more permanent and can be a less expensive alternative to other fillers.
Dr. Wulc developed the Micromidfacelift for patients who may have apprehensions about a full facelift or who are looking for a more natural solution. This revolutionary midface lift technique challenges preconceived notions of the traditional facelift with minimal scarring and downtime.
Patients who may have apprehensions about a full facelift or who are looking for a more natural solution, are candidates for a midface lift surgery. A midface lift is a cheek lift that does precisely that—it lifts the cheeks back to the point they were in youth, creating a heart shaped well-defined face.
Minimal Incision Facelift
A mini facelift involves tightening of the neck and the jawline. It mimics the effects that you might see when you pull up on your jawline and neck looking in the mirror.
Neck lift surgery is a procedure for anyone looking for a more youthful neck with a better contour. This treatment option can help patients with excess skin or localized deposits of fat in the anterior part of the neck—under the chin.
Let’s face it, nobody wants to go under the knife to get a facelift, but sometimes facial injections, lasers, or creams are not enough to get the results you want.

ThermiSmooth® is a non-surgical procedure performed using a specially designed handpiece. It delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface, reducing wrinkles without injections or facial surgery.
