Breast

Breast reduction is designed to decrease the size of the breast and alleviate medical issues related to breast weight. Breast reduction surgery, or mammoplasty, removes fat, glandular tissue and skin, making the breast smaller, lighter and firmer.

Typically a breast reduction surgery isn't performed until the breasts are fully developed. In some cases, if large breasts are causing serious physical discomfort, the surgery can be done earlier. This surgery is not recommended for women who plan to breastfeed.

Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast. Some patients also need their breast implants removed or replaced, for medical reasons or personal choice.

Whether due to pregnancy, nursing, weight loss or aging, a breast lift, or mammoplasty, can improve the firmness and appearance of the breasts (although no surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity and aging). Some women choose to have this surgery to reduce the size of the areola.

Breast reconstruction is a type of surgery for women who have had a breast removed (such as from a mastectomy). The surgery rebuilds the breast mound so that it is about the same size and shape as it was before. The nipple and areola can also be added. Women who have had only the part of the breast around the cancer removed (lumpectomy) may not need reconstruction.

  Breast reconstruction post mastectomy

Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue in men, can occur at any age. This condition may be hereditary, or may be the result of hormonal changes, certain drug therapy, obesity, or medical conditions. Gynecomastia surgery removes fat and/or glandular tissues from the breasts, resulting in a flatter, firmer and more well contoured chest.

Some women are born with nipples that don't protrude and instead are inverted. Cleft nipples may also result after breastfeeding. Correction involves restoring contour, projection and symmetry to balance the appearance of a woman's breasts.

The goal of transfeminine top surgery is to enhance the size and shape of the breasts to create a more feminine appearance to the chest. There are a variety of techniques used to perform top surgery, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which technique is best:

  • Desired amount of breast enlargement
  • Placement of the incisions
  • Type of implant used

The goal of transmasculine top surgery is to remove the breast tissue (mastectomy) from both breasts and create a masculine appearance to the chest. There are a variety of techniques used to perform top surgery, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which technique is best:

  • Amount of breast tissue
  • Amount of excess skin
  • Desire for nipple sensation

 

Body

Body Contouring

Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem. Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for cosmetic procedures. Because it is elective, cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance.

As we age, our skin can lose elasticity. Although exercise can improve underlying muscle, it doesn't address the sagging or drooping skin of the upper arms caused by underlying weakening tissue or localized fat deposits. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, reshapes the upper part of the arm, as well as the underarm to the elbow.

Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, removes the excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdominal egion and tightens the muscle wall.

  Tummy Tuck with Breast Reduction

Childbirth and breastfeeding can leave a woman's abdominal and breast skin loose and sagging, and exercise alone may not always restore a women's body to its earlier shape and form. The "mommy makeover" combines breast surgery (breast implant, breast lift or breast reduction) with a tummy tuck to rejuvenate the breasts and abdomen by tightening the abdomen and giving the breasts a fuller, more youthful appearance.

If your thighs have fat pockets or sagging, loose skin, a thighplasty might be right for you. This procedure reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

 

Hand

Hand Surgery

This type of specialized surgery can treat diseases that cause pain and impair the strength, function and flexibility of your wrist and fingers. Surgery seeks to restore to near normal the function of fingers and hands injured by trauma or to correct abnormalities that were present at birth.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition caused by pressure to the median nerve within the wrist, or carpal tunnel, that causes pain, a tingling sensation, numbness of the fingers, weakness or aching. Carpal tunnel syndrome is associated with multiple conditions including repetitive motion or overuse, fluid retention during pregnancy, injury to the nerve in the carpal tunnel or rheumatoid arthritis.

Dupuytren’s contracture is a disabling hand disorder in which thick, scar-like tissue bands form within the palm and may extend into the fingers. It can cause restricted movement by bending the fingers into an abnormal position.

Ganglion cysts are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your wrists or hands, and occasionally in the ankles and feet. They can be painful if they press on a nearby nerve and their location can sometimes interfere with joint movement.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disabling disease that can cause severe inflammation in the joints of the body that can eventually result in bone erosion and join deformity. In the hand, it can deform fingers and impair movement. An autoimmune disorder, rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues.

Trigger finger occurs when inflammation narrows the space within the sheath that surrounds the tendon in the affected finger. If trigger finger is severe, your finger may become locked in a bent position. People whose work or hobbies require repetitive gripping actions are at higher risk of developing trigger finger. The condition is also more common in women and in anyone with diabetes.

The goal with injuries to the hand is a rapid and accurate initial evaluation and treatment. In other words, once an injury occurs, the doctor strives to begin medical treatment quickly so the short- and long-term effects on the hand can be minimized.

Skin

Skin Surgery

We provide a variety of skin repair and revision options to help you look and feel like your best self. Our surgeons are committed to helping you achieve beautiful and natural-looking results to improve appearance and self-esteem.

If you would like to improve the appearance of a facial scar, you might consider facial scar revision. Our plastic surgeons use injections, steroid medications, and surgical procedures to improve the look of facial scars. Although no scar can be removed completely, these procedures improve the appearance of the scar and make it less noticeable.

In an excision procedure, the surgeon removes a potentially cancerous, infected or deforming skin lesion and an area of surrounding tissue, and then reconstructs the defect. Excised tissues are sent for pathological examination to evaluate for malignancy.

If you have a severe wound, such as a burn that has limited your mobility, causes a loss of sensation, or is cosmetically unappealing, plastic surgery may be an option.

Skin cysts and tumors are skin problems that sometimes cause pain. Skin cysts are non-cancerous closed pockets or pouches of tissue that are filled with fluid or other material. Skin tumors are abnormal tissue growths that can be malignant or benign.

 

Cosmetic

Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that reshape structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem.

  • Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, removes redundant skin and restores support to the fat surrounding the eye to restore it to its youthful appearance. If your upper and lower eyelids are droopy or puffy and make you look older and more tired or are interfering with your vision, this procedure might be a good fit for you.
  • Eyelid surgery will not remove crow's feet, dark circles under your eyes or lift sagging eyebrows.

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.

A brow/forehead lift improves the look of drooping brows as well as furrows that can make a person appear tired, sad or even angry. A brow lift is often combined with an eye lift or blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the upper third of the face.

A chin or neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.

  • A facelift, or rhytidectomy, lifts the underlying tissue of the face, elevates and reshapes fat pads, and removes redundant skin. A facelift will mainly rejuvenate the lower third of the face, so certain other procedures, such as Botox or an eye or neck lift can be performed at the same time to rejuvenate the rest of the face for a balanced look.
  • All incisions are hidden and camouflaged in folds along the ears and hairline to prevent hair loss, scarring, or a ‘pulled’ look. Our goal is to make our patients look rested, relaxed, and youthful in a natural way.

Injectable materials like collagen or Juvederm™ are temporary fillers injected into the face to fill out wrinkles or plump up lips. They can also correct contour irregularities or scars.

If you would like to improve the appearance of prominent or large ears or repair torn earlobes, ear surgery or otoplasty can restore normal contour to the ear. Surgeries are done on children typically before they reach school of age 4-6, as the ears stop growing by age four, but it is also possible to perform the surgery on adults.

Buttock augmentation is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. A buttock lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area.
