Procedures 

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation enlarges the breasts through the placement of implants under breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast augmentation may improve your self-image and self-confidence.

Breast reduction

Breast reduction makes the breasts smaller by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin. The surgery can relieve discomfort such as back pain.

Mastopexy

Also called a breast lift, this procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue to reshape and raise sagging or dropping breasts.

Breast reconstruction after mastectomy

Breast reconstruction helps to restore the breast or breasts to near normal appearance, shape and size. Breast surgeons and plastic surgeons often work together to provide reconstruction the same day as mastectomy.

Abdominoplasty

Commonly called a tummy tuck, this procedure flattens the belly by removing extra fat and skin and tightening muscles in the abdominal wall.

Panniculectomy

Commonly known as body contouring, this procedure removes the excess fat and skin that may hang down over the thighs after massive weight loss, typically after bariatric surgery. A panniculectomy may be performed alone or along with and abdominoplasty.

Facelift with blepharoplasty

A facelift is used to reduce facial wrinkles and improve the overall appearance of the face and jaw area. Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that can make you look more rested and alert.

Liposuction

Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits to improve your body contours and proportion.
