This procedure is also know as lipoplasty. Sometimes even with diet and exercise, stubborn areas of the body do not respond. Liposuction is used to sculpt the body, reducing fat in targeted areas. This procedure is very effective for contouring the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen and love handles. It is also used for facial and neck refinement.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Cosmetic surgery of the nose is elective surgery for a patient seeking a permanent change to better compliment his or her individual face. A change in the shape or size of the nose can further enhance the appearance of the face.
The desire for fuller or larger breasts can be accomplished by a breast augment. Sometimes volume is lost after pregnancy and nursing, or sometimes breast development leaves a woman with two different sized breasts or a size smaller than she desires.
Breast enhancement is achieved by placement of breast implants through an incision in the underarm, in the fold under the breast or areola (pigmented area around the nipple.) The scars are well hidden and the results are fantastic!
Currently, saline filled implants are being used for breast augments. Although the implant companies are submitting information to the FDA for approval of silicone gel implants, they are not approved at this time.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Are you looking for a brighter, more rested look?
Sometimes because of heredity and sometimes because of aging, the upper and lower eyelid skin stretches and muscles become weaker. This results in drooping eyelids and bags under the eyes. By removing excess skin and sometimes fat, eyes look wider and brighter.
Age takes a toll with skin losing its elasticity and stretching. This results in excess skin, droopy jowls, and loose skin on the neck.
A facelift can turn back the hands of time by taking away excess skin, tightening muscles, eliminating jowls, and minimizing the skin at the neck. Although time marches on, the clock has been set back by undergoing a facelift!
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
The silhouette of a woman changes over the years. Generally, the abdomen becomes looser and more prominent through pregnancy and weight gain. The muscles are torn during pregnancy and the skin is lax, creating a small pouch. No matter how many sit ups or exercises are done, the abdomen does not get smaller or firmer.
An abdominoplasty repairs the underlying abdominal muscles and the excess skin is pulled down and trimmed away. A flat tummy results!
