Also known as a "tummy tuck", an abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of your abdomen. Surplus fat is surgically excised from the middle and lower abdominal region, the loose abdominal skin is removed, and the abdominal muscles are tightened and lifted. During your consultation it will be determined if you are a candidate for the procedure. Generally, the best candidates are those who do not smoke, have realistic expectations, and a BMI of 30 or less.
Breast reconstruction is a surgical technique that restores shape and symmetry to the breast following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Many patients choose to have a breast reconstruction to restore their sense of wholeness and femininity after the removal of part or all of a breast. For many patients, reconstruction is also the final step in breast cancer treatment and signifies the end of a difficult journey.
Mastopexy is a surgical technique that reshapes breasts that sag due to aging or body changes. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with another breast-enhancement procedure such as breast reduction or augmentation. Whether it’s due to pregnancy, nursing, weight changes, or just the effects of aging, breast sag is extremely common. By removing the excess skin that leads to sagging, breast lift surgery can reshape your breasts, giving them a more youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty is used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin, eliminates bags, and restores firmness to the area surrounding the eye for a more youthful and alert appearance. Upper eyelid surgery may be covered by insurance if vision is impaired by the sagging eyelids, this can be determined during your consultation. This procedure can be done in-office for some patients.
MINT™ PDO Thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor large incisions. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look. Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.
