Plastic surgery is a medical specialty concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function.
Procedures include (but are not limited to):
Abdominal wall surgery is voluntary (elective) surgery that improves the appearance of flabby, stretched-out abdominal muscles and skin. Such surgery is often called a "tummy tuck." It is a different procedure than liposuction.
Cosmetic Breast Surgery
Breast reconstruction surgery is performed when a breast has been removed due to cancer or other disease. Virtually any patient who loses their breast can have it rebuilt (with artificial implants and native tissue) through reconstructive surgery, but there are risks associated with any surgery. The surgery can take place immediately following the mastectomy or can be delayed.
Breast reduction surgery is performed to reduce the size of a patient's breasts. Many patients chose this operation to reduce back, neck and shoulder pain. Often called Reduction Mammaplasty, this surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the breasts, reshaping of the breasts to form smaller breasts, and repositioning of the nipples.
Breast augmentation surgery is a surgical procedure to increase the size and change the shape of the breasts.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
Rhinoplasty surgery involves repairing or reshaping the nose. Surgery may be performed to reduce or increase the size of the nose, to change the shape, to narrow the opening of the nostrils, correct a birth defect and/or injury or relieve breathing problems.
Liposuction is the removal of excess body fat by suction using special surgical equipment.
Eyelid lift surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is done to repair sagging or drooping eyelids.
A forehead lift or browlift is a surgical procedure to correct sagging of the forehead skin, eyebrows, and upper eyelids.
A facelift is a surgical procedure to repair sagging, drooping, and wrinkled skin of the face and neck.
Cosmetic ear surgery is a procedure to move very large or prominent ears closer to the head.
Cleft Palate Repair
Cleft lip and cleft palate repair is surgery to fix birth defects of the upper lip and palate (roof of the mouth).
