Face, Eyelid and Brow Lifts //
Face: If you are bothered by signs of aging in your face, facelift surgery may be right for you. Technically known as rhytidectomy, a facelift is a surgical procedure to improve visible signs of aging in the face and neck. It helps resolve deep wrinkles between the nose and mouth as well as loose skin and jowling in the jaw and neck. Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Recovery from swelling and bruising takes 2-3 weeks. A less invasive minifacelift can be performed while awake under local anesthesia with a shorter recovery time. String lifts are less invasive still, and may be the answer for very early signs of facial aging.
Eyelid: Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It treats loose and hanging skin as well as puffiness, bags and fine line wrinkles. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and recovery ranges from 7-10 days.
Brow: A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, reduces wrinkle lines, improves frown lines, eliminates vertical lines above the nose and raises sagging brows. It gives an effect similar to Botox but is a permanent solution. Surgery is under general anesthesia and recovery is approximately 7-10 days.
Mommy Makeover //
Mommy Makeover: Restore the beautiful figure you one once had prior to pregnancy. Usually, it involves a combination of procedures, including: smoothing out your abdomen with a tummy tuck, removing stretch marks and hanging skin, lifting and augmenting sagging breasts, and rejuvenating your skin with chemical peels and dermal fillers.
Abdominoplasty: A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. The surgery is more extensive than liposuction, but gives a beautiful, flat abdomen. A large incision is required but it lies below the bikini line in most cases. Surgery is under general anesthesia and an overnight hospital stay is often required. Recovery is 2- weeks. A mini tummy tuck is less invasive and is well suited to those who simply have loose, excess skin at the waistline. This procedure has a smaller incision and lesser downtime. A mini abdominoplasty can often be performed with sedation under local anesthesia.
Male Chest Recontouring //
Gynecomastia: Gynecomastia is a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or the use of certain drugs.
Breast Surgery //
Augmentation, Reduction, Lift
Breast Augmentation: Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, this involves the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. General anesthesia is required and incisions can be placed under the breast, around the nipple or in the axilla (arm pit), depending on patient preference. We have all implants available (smooth, textured, round, shaped, saline, silicone) and chose the ideal one to give you the look you desire. Recovery is in the order of ten days to two weeks depending on your activity level.
Breast Reduction: Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. A significant uplift to the breasts is also achieved. Scarring is around the nipple down the front of the breast and in the crease under the breast. general anesthesia is required and recovery is about two weeks. Insurance often covers this procedure if the reduction in volume fits their criteria.
Breast Lift: A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Scarring can be minimal, simply around the nipple or extensive as in a breast reduction, depending on the extent of droop, or ptosis. General anesthesia or sedation is required and recovery is usually about one week.
Liposuction: Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion. The most common areas include neck, abdomen, thighs, hips, flanks and buttock. Surgery is often performed while awake with oral sedation. Recovery varies and post surgical garments are usually required for a few weeks. Scarring is minimal, consisting of small puncture incisions.
Rhinoplasty: Sometimes referred to as "nose reshaping." It can improve the appearance and proportion of your nose, or correct a breathing problem associate with the nose. Rhinoplasty can be performed for cosmetic reasons or out of necessity as the result of trauma. Most insurances cover surgery for breathing difficulties or traumatic injuries. General anesthesia is required and a splint is applied to the nose for one week to ten days.
