Treatments & Services
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty (also called a Tummy Tuck) removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A Belt Lipectomy is when excess hanging skin in the lower back and buttocks area is surgically removed.
Botox®, the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes, and wrinkles and bands in the neck.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
An Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, reshapes and tightens the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow.
Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, this surgery involves using breast implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. It can also be done as part of gender-affirming care.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A Breast Lift also known as Mastopexy raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.
Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance, and size following previous surgery (revision) or after removal of breast cancer.
Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammoplasty)
Breast Reduction Surgery also known as reduction mammoplasty 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.
Buttock Lift, or Brazilian Butt Lift with Fat Grafting or Buttock Enhancement, is a combination of liposuction of one or more body areas and then transfer of the fat to the buttocks. It is performed under general anesthesia. This procedure can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as tummy tuck or breast surgery, but may also be performed on its own.
Earlobe Repair is performed to correct a torn or over-stretched ear lobe.
Eye Lid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is aimed to reduce the excess of the skin of the eyelids as well as any swelling or sagging of the fat around the eye. These common effects of aging can result in a tired or sad facial expression. Some minor corrections in the upper lid can be easily corrected in the office with a little bit of local anesthesia in under an hour. More involved procedures will be done as an outpatient procedure. While most eyelid procedures are performed for cosmetic defects, some individuals experience a loss of their visual fields as a result of overhanging skin.
Aging is not only limited to the face, loss of elasticity also occurs in the neck. This leads to sagging skin and fat under the chin as well as banding of the neck from the underlying muscle.
In Fat Grafting, human fat harvested from your own body, is reinjected to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases and to build up shallow contours. Fat injection requires a more extensive procedure than other injectable fillers because it uses liposuction techniques to extract the fat prior to injection.
Lipectomy (Body Contouring)
Body Contouring or Lipectomy improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.
Liposuction, also known as Lipoplasty, 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.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia is the surgical correction of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men.
Aging is not only limited to the face, loss of elasticity also occurs in the neck. This leads to sagging skin and fat under chin as well as banding of the neck from the underlying muscle. In addition to the traditional neck lift procedure involving incisions behind the ear and a small one under the chin, the minimally-invasive web necklift in performed. This involves less dissection and a quicker recovery time from the traditional approach.
Scar Revision Treatments
Scar revision is plastic surgery performed to improve the condition or appearance of a scar anywhere on your body. The type of scar you have will determine the appropriate techniques your plastic surgeon will use to improve your scar.
Skin Cancer Surgery
Treatment of skin cancer, much like any form of cancer, may require surgery to remove cancerous growths.
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.
