Conditions & Treatments

Liposuction  

There are two types of liposuction, a surgical procedure that suctions fat from specific areas of the body to provide a slimmer and well-formed silhouette.

 
  • Tumescent liposuction, the most popular type, a combination of medications and saline are infused into the area to be treated. This liquid, along with fat, is suctioned out of the body using cannulas. The infusion of liquid can cause short-term edema that gradually dissipates.
  •  
  • Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), the cannula releases energy to dissolve fat so that it can be suctioned out through the cannula. UAL has more risks than tumescent liposuction.
 

The average patient can return to work in 1-2 weeks depending on the areas selected for the treatment.

 
Brazilian Butt Lift  

A Brazilian butt lift is a specialized fat transfer procedure that augments the size and shape of the buttocks without implants. Excess fat is removed from the hips, abdomen, lower back or thighs with liposuction, and a portion of this fat is then strategically injected into the buttock.

 

Surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.

Breast Augmentation  

Surgery is done for many reasons: to enlarge both breasts, to replace a breast that is absent or to make asymmetrical breasts equal in size. There are 2 types of implants, Silicone and Saline. Silicone implants, once banned as a health risk, are increasing in popularity. Almost twenty percent of women choose a silicone implant over saline, citing the more realistic feel of silicone.

 

There are four types of incision:

 
    • Inframammary: In this procedure, a small incision is made in the fold underneath the breast. The advantages of this technique are that the incision allows the surgeon to have a wider access point to insert the implant with greater precision. In addition, the remaining scar (generally about 1 to 2 inches long) can be concealed under the crease.
 
    • Peri-areolar: This procedure requires an incision to be made near the outer edge of the areola. In this manner, the scar is somewhat hidden by the natural pigmentation progression of the areola and the rest of the breast.
 
    • Trans-axillary: A small incision is made under the armpit. The breast implant will be inserted in this opening by the surgeon using special surgical instruments and a camera to ensure proper placement. The procedure does leave a small scar at the point of incision but the breast itself remains scar-free.
 
  • Transumbilical: An incision is made above the navel and the implants are inserted through this incision and then moved up to the breast. The transumbilical technique leaves a single small scar and no scars on the breasts themselves.
 

Most patients have a 1-2 weeks of recovery before they can return to normal activities. High impact activity, such as running, may require additional healing time.

 
Breast Reduction  

Women with large breasts often have difficulty finding clothing that fits, experience chronic back pain and poor posture. Ideally, the surgery to reduce both the size and weight of the breasts will relieve back pain and improve posture. The surgery is a permanent solution to having disproportionate breasts and most patients return to work within 2 weeks.

 
Breast Lift

A treatment for flaccid or poorly shaped breasts, a breast lift repositions the breast for a perkier appearance. A typical patient will have this procedure after significant weight loss or pregnancy leaves the breasts looking saggy. Some women choose to have a lift and an implant procedure if the breasts are smaller than before weight loss or pregnancy.

 

Most women can return to work within 2 weeks and resume full physical activity within a month.

 
Tummy Tuck  

Also known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty removes excess skin from the abdominal area and tightens the skin that remains. This surgery is popular, primarily among women who have excess skin after being pregnant or after losing significant weight after bariatric surgery.

 

Most patients can resume normal activities in 2-3 weeks but may have limits on physical activity for a longer time.

 
Nose job  

Also known as a nose job, this procedure reshapes the nose, bringing it into harmony with the rest of the facial features. The surgeon may reduce the overall size of the nose or refine areas of the nose for a more pleasing appearance.

 

Bruising can be obvious after surgery but should fade over the next 10-14 days, when most patients return to work.

 
Eyelid  

Also known as Eyelid reshaping surgery, it can be done for cosmetic reasons or to improve vision in patients where the eyelids obstruct vision. Too much skin or sagging skin can cause vision to be impaired and contributes to the appearance of aging.

 

Lower eyelids with chronic puffiness or wrinkling are often reduced during the procedure for a more youthful appearance. Fat pads under the eyes causing the appearance of “bags” are removed as necessary in the lower lid procedure.

 

The average recovery from this surgery is about 10 days, with swelling becoming less noticeable for weeks or months.

 
Facelift  

A rhytidectomy, or facelift, is a surgical solution to the wrinkles and sagging that accompany aging. A facelift tightens the skin of the face to give a more youthful appearance by gently pulling skin tighter, smoothing deep lines and minimizing flaccidness.

 

A facelift is frequently combined with other procedures to enhance the youthful appearance of the patient.

 

Swelling, redness and bruising are normal after surgery, but most patients can return to work within 2 weeks. Healing is complete and the results are often apparent within 12 weeks.

 
Forehead Lift  

Like a facelift, a forehead lift pulls the skin of the forehead tighter to remove wrinkles and smooth creases. The eyebrows are also elevated for a more alert and youthful appearance.

 

Most patients can resume normal activity within 10 days of surgery, but recovery can be significantly longer if combined with other facial surgeries.

 
Gynecomastia

Surgery to reduce excessive amounts of male breast tissue, a condition known as gynecomastia. Men with very large breasts may require a longer surgery with an additional procedure to decrease excess skin; otherwise sagging skin may be noticeable.

 

Surgeons typically make an incision around the nipple line so that the scar is not noticeable to the casual observer, allowing patients to go shirtless after recovery.

 

Most men can return to work within a week and are able to return to normal activity within weeks.

 
Gluteal Implants  

Very thin patients who don’t have enough fat for liposuction might not be eligible for fat grafting (Brazilian Butt lift). The placement of the silicone implants requires a multi-hour outpatient surgery in which a surgeon inserts implants into your buttock.

 
Otoplasty  

Otoplasty, also known as cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears. The procedure can be done at any age after the ears have reached their full size, usually after age 5, through adulthood. You might consider otoplasty if your ear or ears stick out too far from your head, large in proportion to your head or dissatisfied with a previous ear surgery.

 
Arm Lift  

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward, tightens and smooths the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.

 
Thigh Lift  

During a thigh lift, a surgeon makes a cut on the upper and inner thigh and removes excess fat and skin. The surgeon also often does liposuction before, during, or after the procedure. People usually get a thigh lift on an outpatient basis, meaning they don't need to stay overnight. The surgery takes up to four hours. Most people get back to their activities in about two to three weeks and are back to full activity in four to six weeks.

 
Bichat  

Bichectomy is a simple and very safe surgical procedure indicated for patient with a rounded and wide face which can be performed as an outpatient surgery under intravenous or oral sedation. The result is a thinner lower third of the face making a great solution for patients who want to slim the size of their cheeks at the same time contouring the face on an outpatient surgery basis with a low cost.

 
Chin Neck Liposuction  

Chin or Neck liposuction removes excess fat from the area, refining the jawline to enhance the chin bringing balance to facial features. It also improves the appearance of a “double chin”.

 
Chin Augmentation  

A well-defined jawline is the essence of a balanced attractive face, man or woman. By placing a chin implant, our skilled cosmetic surgeon can add strength to a weak or recessed chin, improving the overall harmony of the face.

 

Chin augmentation surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. It normally takes less than an hour to perform; however, if you are having additional procedures, operating time will increase.

 
 

Botox

 

Botox injections use a toxin called botulinum toxin A to temporarily prevent a muscle from moving. Making it a simple solution for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.

 

Fillers (Hyaluronic acid)

 

Injectable Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, facial folds, adding structure, framework and volume to the face. The effects are seen immediately.

 

Peeling

 

Chemical peels can improve the skin's appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is applied to the skin, which makes it "blister" and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

 

Micro needling with Fresh Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

 

Traditional micro needling is used to treat everything from age spots and wrinkles to scarring and other forms of hyperpigmentation. PRP injections may boost these effects and help you achieve your desired results faster.
