Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

Our plastic surgeons offer contemporary aesthetic services to help men and women enhance their appearance and sense of well being in close collaboration with our other specialists including dermatologists, facial plastic surgeons, orthodontists, and vascular surgeons. All services are offered in an environment of trust, respect and confidentiality. We provide a full range of cosmetic procedures and reconstructive surgeries.

Cosmetic Services

Unlike a generation ago, today’s most popular and successful procedures do not involve long hospital stays or extended recovery times. Rather, most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis with markedly shorter recovery times.

Surgical Services

Breast Procedures
A number of procedures can safely reshape or resize breasts.

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast lift

Tummy Tuck
This procedure flattens the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles of the abdominal wall.

Liposuction
This procedure helps to improve body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits. Common locations for liposuction include chin, cheeks, neck, upper arms, above the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles.

Facial Surgery
The average facelift done today lasts ten to fifteen years. The best candidates are men and women whose face and neck have started to sag but have good skin elasticity. Strong and well-defined bone structure is also a plus.

  • Full face lift
  • Neck lift
  • Blepharoplasty to remove baggy eyelids
  • Browlift
  • Nose surgery
  • Ear surgery
  • Forehead lift

Facial Rejuvenation Services
Several non-surgical procedures are available to restore wrinkled, blemished, unevenly pigmented or sun-damaged facial skin.
