Breast surgery augmentation (saline and silicone implants), lift, reduction. Augmentation creates larger, fuller breasts through surgical placement of breast implants. Lift corrects loose, sagging breasts by reshaping the breasts, raising the nipples to a higher position and restoring breast firmness. Can reduce the size of the areola when desired. Reduction is similar to lift, but more tissue is removed to relieve the symptoms of back and neck pain related to excessively large breasts. VIEW IMAGES   back to top

Body Contouring surgery abdominoplasty (tummy-tuck), suction-assisted lipectomy (liposuction), ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Tummy-tuck corrects a loose, protruding or sagging abdomen and creates a flatter, tighter abdominal profile. In women who have had children, frequently tummy-tuck is needed to improve abdominal contour, in addition to liposuction, which removes localized excess deposits of fat from specific areas of the face, neck, and body. It is best suited for individuals within 30% of their ideal body weight. It creates smoother contours and a better-proportioned figure. VIEW IMAGES
