Plastic surgery is a great way to increase your self-confidence, improve your physical health and allow you to take charge of your life in a whole new way. There are so many possibilities. Give me a call and make an appointment so we can discuss your goals and how to go about achieving them. I'll let you know all of the options and together we'll figure out a plan that's right for you, your family and your lifestyle. 

As a surgeon who likes to be honest with my patients, I will inform you about the various options available, the potential side effects and possible downtime you might experience after a certain procedure or surgery. Your safety and satisfaction are my utmost concern.

The visit will put to rest any fears or concerns you might have about plastic surgery. My recommendations are safe and appropriate for you; otherwise I would not offer them to you. We will determine what will work for you, how to get you the results you want which will make you feel better about your appearance and bolster your confidence. 

Procedures:

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Let’s talk abdomen! For many people, there’s nothing that can be done nonsurgically to get rid of unwanted tummy fat. A tummy tuck helps improve the contour and tone of the lower abdomen by removing skin and fat while also eliminating stretch marks and tightening the abdominal muscles.

If you have excess skin and stretched muscles from carrying a baby (or babies), losing weight, or you’ve just been “blessed” with bad genes, this is a good surgery for you. 

Liposuction

Liposuction! What a great, safe and fabulous invention. The relatively painless and very safe procedure can reduce localized deposits of excess fatty tissue on your thighs, hips, knees, abdomen, and lower back. Liposuction can also be performed under the chin and along the upper arms and bra strap area.

If you have localized fatty deposits and have good skin tone, liposuction is a great option that will have you feeling like your younger self. 

Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)

Does your backside lack shape and fullness? Do you look in the mirror and dream of rounder, more prominent, and perky buttocks? A Brazilian Butt Lift may be just what you are looking for. Fat is taken from areas of excess (usually the waist and trunk area), processed, and then injected into the buttock area. It helps add volume, shape, and lift, and as an added bonus, sculpts your waist. How amazing is that? 

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Bat wings? Bingo arms? It’s that terrible skin and fat on your upper arms that takes all the fun out of summer and sleeveless shirts or dresses.

Whether a result of significant weight loss or the aging process, bat wings and bingo arms can be removed and streamlined by an arm lift. The procedure has worked wonders for many now-happy patients who no longer dread bearing their arms. 

Thigh Lift

It’s true. The appearance of our inner thighs can be improved by removing and tightening excess fat and skin. Patients who have lost a significant amount weight and have excess skin on their inner thighs often come to me looking for a solution. This can be fixed with a thigh lift! 

Lower Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)

This combination of an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, and a buttock lift, also includes a little work to improve the outer thighs. Excess skin and some fatty tissue are removed from the upper buttock area, abdomen, and hips and at the same time that the skin is advanced and tightened. We call this a belt lipectomy because the skin removal continues all the way around the waistline, creating a wonderful, shape.

Primarily for people who have lost a significant amount of weight, they can now say, “see ya later sagging skin.”

Labiaplasty

A labiaplasty removes excess tissue from the labia. The surgery can be performed for cosmetic reasons or for those who feel physical discomfort due to an enlarged or elongated labia.

For some women, a recent life change has caused their breasts to lose their shape and volume. For others their breasts have never looked like they’ve wanted them to look, ie too small, too large, or just unshapely. I’m here to tell you that breast surgery and its many variations can help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted.

Procedures:

Breast Enlargement (Augmentation Mammoplasty)

Who knew that having nicely shaped breasts can provide women with such a feeling of self-confidence? Today, it’s possible to increase the size while also improving the shape of a woman’s breasts with a very personalized and accessible surgery. There are a number of excellent options to choose from, and patients have the ability to determine the incision placement, implant shape, and implant position. Let’s get you excited about your girls again! 

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

I’ve found that this surgery does more than improve and lift the shape of the breast; it lifts patients’ spirits and improves their attitudes as well. Without getting into too many specifics, the procedure involves moving the nipple to a higher location, reshaping the breast and removing excess skin from the lower part of the breast. The final appearance is one of beauty and elegance. Summer dresses never looked so good!

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty)

Let’s be honest: For any number of women, having extra large breasts is not all that much fun. For those of you who feel this way, I can help reduce the size and improve the shape of your breasts. The procedure involves removing excess skin, fat, and breast tissue while making the breast “perky” again.  Patients who undergo this surgery tell me they’re excited to be able to run, work out, wear “normal-sized” bras and rid themselves of their aching shoulders and back. And, do you want more good news?  Often this procedure is covered by insurance.  Just make an appointment and I can help you figure all of this out.

Breast Reconstruction

What an often painful and difficult journey many women with breast cancer have been through. Having breast reconstruction after undergoing a mastectomy is part of this often trying journey. I have had the privilege of working with numerous breast cancer survivors and feel honored to have been able to restore not only their appearance but their self-confidence as well.

Breast reconstruction can be done at the same time as the mastectomy or months to years later.  Numerous surgical techniques are available, including use of your own tissue or implants, which will recreate a natural shape, leaving you feel whole again.

The surgery can also be used for patients who are unhappy with a previous reconstruction, or for those who now have asymmetrical breasts after a lumpectomy.  

We have a team devoted to your health and happiness. We listen, advise, and advocate. Schedule a consultation and come find out about what will work best for you.

Facial plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures provide a way to improve facial contour, hide imperfections, rejuvenate your skin and turn back the clock. No matter what your concern might be, we’ll talk, look at the options, and help you look as young as you feel. The goal is to have you smile – without worrying about your wrinkles – every time you look in the mirror!

Procedures:

Facelift (Rhytidectomy)

Ok. It’s time. You’re ready. You want to improve the tone and contour of your cheeks, jawline, and neck. You want to once and for all rid yourself of those deep creases on both sides of your nose and the “jowls” along your jawline. All this while still looking like you! There are countless options here, so come in, we’ll talk and figure out the best plan for you. 

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

You know it’s all in the eyes, and these days, you’re just not happy with yours. Lift drooping or hooded eyelids, remove fatty tissue, or "bags”, from under your eyes and see a more rested, fresher-looking you. The procedure can target the upper lids, lower lids, or both.  

Fat Injection

Who knew that fat injections would become a stealthy way to add fullness to specific areas and to camouflage depressed scars or wrinkles. Fat cells from your own body are injected to fill the treated areas. This is a perfect alternative if you don’t want to undergo an extensive procedure that requires lots of healing time and recovery.

Fat injections can add fullness without more involved surgery. The results can be permanent, however sometimes the procedure needs to be repeated to achieve the desired result.

Lip Enhancement

Ready to really love your lips? Fillers are the way to go to add fullness to the size and shape of your kissers. Although temporary, the results will last for months at a time. 

Fillers

Find your fabulousness in fillers! Reduce wrinkles and lines by filling in the creases with biocompatible materials. You’ll see cheekbones you forgot you had. You’ll have full, loveable and kissable lips and look as young as you feel. 

Botox/Dysport

There is great beauty in Botox. The simple procedure relaxes the muscles that form unwanted creases and can help you look more rested, rejuvenated and ready for anything.

Great results are seen with a stealthy combination of fillers and Botox. Let’s talk and come up with a plan just for you.

The days when women were my only clients are long gone. And that’s because more and more men are willing to undergo safe procedures and surgeries to look as good as possible, to feel confident, and to put their best face forward. There are many options available, including a wide variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures. I’m here to help, as your path to a better appearance starts with a good conversation about your goals and the many options available. Stop in and we’ll figure out a plan that’s right for you!

Procedures:

Liposuction

There are transformative powers in liposuction. So many reasons, and so many areas of the body that it can change. A relatively quick, effective procedure reduces localized deposits of excess fatty tissue in the neck area, chest, abdomen, and lower back. No more “love handles” to squeeze!

Blepharoplasty

Eyes are often one of the first features to show the signs of aging, and the development of wrinkles and droopy eyelids can cause you to look more tired and older than you feel. Eyelid surgery can reverse the signs of aging by removing excess skin and fatty tissue – otherwise known as “bags” under the eyes. You’ll enjoy a more well-rested, youthful appearance.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Excision)

You want to look fit and toned and yet, after eating right and spending hours at the gym, that gynecomastia, otherwise known as “man boobs,” still persists. Instead of feeling self-conscious and apprehensive about taking your shirt off to play a game of hoops or swim at the beach, this procedure can restore your confidence in your body. The result will be a flatter, firmer, and more-toned chest with a youthful and masculine contour.

Botox/Dysport

It’s not called Bro-tox for nothing, as millions of men have discovered the wonderful benefits of a procedure that can help smooth facial lines. Everyone deserves to look as good and confident as they feel. Whether you’re curious about your options (or your partner is the one doing the encouraging), stop in and we’ll figure out a perfect plan for you.
