Before and After Photos
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift (mastopexy) is powerful procedure that can lift the nipple, reduce excess skin, and reshape the breasts to sit higher on the chest in a more youthful position.
A breast reduction is surgery performed to remove excess skin and breast tissue in an effort to reduce symptoms such as neck pain, arm pain, and back pain resulting from having large breasts.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A typical tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is a surgery that flattens the belly, tightens the abdominal muscles, and reduces the excess skin and stretch marks from both above and below the belly button.
Mommy Makeover (Tummy Tuck And Breast Surgery)
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgeries aimed at reversing the changes the body undergoes during pregnancy. This typically includes a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and a breast lift.
Correction of Gynecomastia (Male Chest Contouring)
Gynecomastia surgery is done to obtain a flatter, more muscular looking chest by reducing excess fat and removing bulging glandular breast tissue.
Women seek labiaplasty for many reasons ranging from discomfort with intercourse and pinching in tight clothing to purely cosmetic reasons.
Face and Neck Lift (Rhytidectomy)
A face and neck lift is a surgery that tightens the skin and underlying tissues of the neck and face to reverse the tell-tell signs of facial aging – facial decent and skin laxity.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
A blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is a surgery that helps reduce the appearance of eye bags, lift droopy upper eyelids, and present a brighter, more rested looking you.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
A cosmetic rhinoplasty is a surgery that reduces and repositions tissue in the nose for better aesthetics. This often involves straightening the dorsal profile, reducing dorsal humps, and reshaping the tip.
