Facelift

If you are bothered by the signs of aging in your face, a facelift 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, such as: sagging in the midface, deep creases below the lower eyelids, fat that has fallen or is displaced, loss of muscle tone in the lower face that may create jowls, loose skin, excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw, or double chin.

Brow Lift

Also known as a forehead lift, a brow lift minimizes the creases that develop across the forehead and high on the bridge of the nose, improves what are commonly referred to as frown lines, and repositions a low or sagging brow.

Eyelid Surgery

Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.

Otoplasty

If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery. Ear surgery - also known as otoplasty - can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, that becomes apparent with development or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.

Rhinoplasty

Nose surgery also known as rhinoplasty, improves the appearance and proportion of your nose, enhancing facial harmony and self confidence. Surgery of the nose may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose.

Chin Augmentation

Chin surgery, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone. Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having nose surgery in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Chin surgery helps provide a harmonious balance to your facial features.

Facial Implants

Plastic surgeons use facial implants to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.

There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen a jawline or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.

Facial implants can enhance your appearance and bolster your self-esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection, in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that a facial implant is the right choice for you.

Plastic surgeons will frequently use such implants to bring better balance to the features of a younger patient. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or her chin brought forward so that these traits are better proportioned. The more mature patient may choose to have an implant placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure. For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears "sunken" or tired.

Fat Injection

As we age, fat in certain parts of our body atrophies or dissipates leading to step-offs and hollowness on the face, and around the eyes. Fat injection procedures known as autologous fat transplantation or microfat injection, involves removing fat from an area of excess on your body. The fat cells are then injected to fill sunken cheeks or laugh lines between the nose and mouth, to correct skin depressions on indentations, to minimize forehead wrinkles, to improve step-offs around the eyelids and to enhance lips. Another excellent area for fat injection is the hand. As we age, the fat at the back of the hands may atrophy or go away. The tendons and veins on the back of the hands become more visible, giving the hands an irregular contour full of blue and white cords. Fat injection into such hands can replace lost fullness thereby correcting contour. The fat will also serve to hide tendons and veins on the back of your hands which are one of the typical signs of aging. As the injected autologous fat is harvested from you, it tends to last longer than injected bovine collagen.

Breast Augmentation

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

Breast Lift

Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.

Breast Reduction

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, 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.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition.

The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life. Although surgery can give you a relatively natural-looking breast, a reconstructed breast will never look or feel exactly the same as the breast that was removed.

Liposuction

Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image.

Abdominoplasty

Tummy tuck also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

Circumferential Body Lift

Body contouring after major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

Arm Lift

Brachioplasty, also known as arm lift or arm tuck, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove redundant, flabby, and sagging skin folds of the upper arms. Hanging arm skin folds are not only unsightly, but also interfere with one's ability to fit in sleeved tops, and can also cause underarm skin rash and irritation.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

Buttock Lift

There are a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures available to those who would like to have youthful, fuller, and perky buttocks with a more sensual body profile. The procedure for buttock augmentation and enhancement specifically varies according to the each patient's unique needs and circumstances.

Gynecomastia Correction

Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for "women-like breasts." Gynecomastia or male breast reduction is actually quite common and may affect only one breast or both. There is no known cause in the vast majority of cases, and surgery is the only known physical remedy. In cases of obesity, weight loss can alter the gynecomastia condition, but for many it will not eliminate it.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is a new liposuction technique that creates a muscular, rippled appearance in the abdominal area.

Men who consider cosmetic muscle enhancement should keep in mind that these procedures are still relatively new. It is best to seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon who has received adequate training in these methods.

General Reconstructive Surgery

Injuries, disease and birth defects all can lead to deformities that can be repaired with reconstructive plastic surgery. Although surgery can restore form and function to improve your condition, it can't fulfill unrealistic expectations.
