Body contouring broadly describes procedures that remove excess skin and fat from the body to achieve a more natural and aesthetically pleasing shape. This includes procedures such as: liposuction, abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”), arm lift (brachioplasty) and thigh/body lift after weight loss.
An injection used to improve facial frown lines and wrinkles, Botox temporarily creates a smoother, more youthful appearance. The effects last from three to twelve months.
These procedures are used to change the appearance of a woman’s breasts. With a breast augmentation, surgical implants are used to enlarge the breasts. A breast reduction removes excess breast fat, tissue and skin to alleviate discomfort associated with overly large breasts. A breast lift repositions and reshapes sagging breasts after pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
Brow and Eyelid Lift
A brow or eyelid lift corrects the excess skin, tissue and fat that cause puffiness and bags in both the upper and lower eyelids and brow. The result is a more youthful, energetic appearance.
Cheek, Chin or Lip Augmentation
During a cheek or chin augmentation, implants are placed to correct the cosmetic problem. In a cheek augmentation, cheekbones are given more definition and hollowed-out cheeks appear fuller. In a chin augmentation, an implant helps correct a “weak” chin and gives it more definition.
A lip augmentation uses a filler to create a full, voluminous look.
Often performed on prominent ears, this procedure corrects ears that “stick out” by reshaping and repositioning them. This procedure is also done to correct deformities caused by injury or previous surgeries.
Face or Neck Lift
With a face or neck lift, excess skin is tightened and removed to create a more youthful appearance in the face, jowl and neck areas. These procedures help with wrinkles and sagging caused by aging.
These fillers help diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restore volume to the face.
In this procedure, fat is transferred from areas where there is excess fat to areas that lack adequate volume – such as face, lips, hands, breasts or buttocks.
The procedure is performed for cosmetic reasons or medical conditions, such as injury, stretching and age.
Also called a rhinoplasty, this procedure improves the appearance of the nose. It is performed for cosmetic reasons and as reconstructive surgery to improve breathing.
