This procedure is also referred to as a "tummy tuck". This is a procedure designed to improve the contour of both the skin and muscles of the abdomen. Both men and women who are in otherwise good shape may have problems tightening loose skin without surgery. Abdominal fat may also be resistant to diet or exercise. This can be a result of weight changes (gain or loss), pregnancy, or simply aging.
ABDOMINOPLASTY OPTIONS:
After a physical examination of your abdomen, we can discuss your goals and realistic possibilities. A standard abdominoplasty, mini-tuck, or liposuction may be suggested. Sometimes a combination of more than one modality may be recommended.
 

ARM LIFT (BRACHIOPLASTY)

Often times with age and/or weight changes excess skin of the upper arms can appear to "hand" in spite of regular exercise. Resection of this skin involves a scar from the armpit area to the elbow. The goal is to have an improved contour which can often help sleeves fit better as well.
 

BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation (or enlargement) is considered by women from all walks of life, and at all ages. This is one of the most popular breast enhancement cosmetic procedures. The surgery recommended will differ for each individual. The procedure will take into account the shape, weight and size of the person considering the operation. Breast augmentation can give women the fullness and increased firmness to give the desired appearance.

Breast asymmetry is a factor in MOST cases. This is sometimes due to loss of volume after childbirth, weight gain or loss, size of ribcages, and genetics. Sometimes a breast "lift" (mastopexy) is also advisable to give the best result.
BREAST AUGMENTATION OPTIONS:
There is a choice of either saline or silicone gel breast implants. Educational material is always provided to our patients to assist in making a sound and informed decision about breast enhancements.
 

BREAST CANCER RECONSTRUCTIONS

Our expertise in this matter is unmatched. We have long term experience in a variety of techniques. This ranges from complete reconstruction after mastectomy, to improving defects of the breast that are a result of lumpectomy with or without radiation. We are also pioneers in oncoplastic surgery. This involves reshaping the breast at the time of a breast conservation surgery, and this may leave the breast with a more pleasing contour than with tumor removal alone. In all cases, we are enthusiastic about teaming up with your breast cancer surgeon to give the best result possible. Not everyone is a candidate for all procedures, so feel free to consult with us before your cancer procedure to know your options.
 

BREAST LIFT (MASTOPEXY)

Also called mastopexy, a breast lift is indicated for drooping breasts. Sometimes this occurs after pregnancy, weight loss, gravitational pull, or simply by nature. There are a variety of ways to accomplish a lift, and your consultation will determine which method will give the best results for you. Sometimes the lift can be combined with a reduction of breast size or an implant. Each case will be evaluated on a unique basis.
 

BREAST REDUCTION

Large breasts can make a torso appear disproportionately heavy. This may cause cosmetic issues due to size and inability to be comfortable in clothing. Sometimes other symptoms such as back and neck pain, rashes, etc. can be caused by large breast weight. Depending on the degree of reduction recommended, the procedure may be partially covered by insurance versus considered cosmetic surgery. We can give you suggestions about what information you will need to provide when you come to the office for our consultation.
 

LIPOSUCTION

Ideally, liposuction works best when there are areas of fat deposits that are out of porportion to your usual body shape. This can occur on almost any area of the body. The latest techniques are always utilized to obtain the best results. Although not a substitute for weight loss, liposuction can improve your torso contour in a pleasing silhouette.
 

MOMMY MAKEOVER

Preganancy can change many areas of the body, with most of the common problems focused on the breasts and abdomen. Re-contouring the body can be considered. Often times, the procedures such as breast lift (with or without implants) or abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) can tighten skin that has lost tone after a pregnancy. Please see our description of these procedures in this website.
