Plastic Surgery Services

We provide a wide array of therapies and treatments to enhance your natural beauty, including:

Body contouring

Tone and tighten problem areas with our body contouring procedures.

  • Liposuction — slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing fat deposits.
  • Abdominoplasty — the “tummy tuck" removes excess skin on the abdomen due to weight loss or pregnancy.
  • Upper body lift — the “bra-line lift" removes extra skin from the upper back to the side of the chest, often due to weight loss.
  • Gynecomastia repair — surgical procedure to remove excess chest tissue in men.
  • Brachioplasty — the “arm lift" removes extra skin from the upper arm, usually for people who've lost a large amount of weight.
  • Panniculectomy — a surgical procedure that removes an overhanging apron of skin from the lower abdomen.
  • Thigh lift — removes excess skin from the inner thigh after weight loss.

Breast procedures

Enhance your natural figure with our breast procedures. We offer:

  • Breast augmentation — enlarges small breasts and uplifts breasts that sag from pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Breast lift — elevates breasts, repositions the nipple, and tightens skin on sagging breasts.
  • Breast reconstruction — after mastectomy, doctors can form a breast from your own tissues, a breast implant, or a combination.
  • Breast reduction — removal of excess breast tissue, easing discomfort and self-image problems.
  • Male breast reduction — removal of extra chest tissue and repositioning of nipples.
  • Fat injections — a surgeon harvests fat from one part of your body and places it in the breast. It can add volume, fix defects from other procedures, or cover up scarring.

Facial procedures

Restore or improve your appearance with these targeted procedures.

  • Brow and forehead lifts — elevate drooping eyebrows and smooth forehead lines for a younger look.
  • Eyelid surgery — removes or repositions skin and fat for a more rested, youthful appearance.
  • Facelift — elevates cheeks, lifts sagging jowls, and tightens the skin of the neck.
  • Facial implants — adds balance to cheeks, chin, and jaw using bio-compatible materials.
  • Lip augmentation — gives plumper lips and reduces wrinkles with fillers, fat, or implants.
  • Nose reshaping —can improve breathing, change appearance, or correct an injury or deformity.

Structural fat grafting

Structural fat grafting is a procedure where a doctor takes fat from one part of your body and places it elsewhere. Your doctor will use liposuction for the procedure.

Structural fat grafting can add volume, provide reconstruction, and cover up scarring. Doctors use it on:

  • Buttocks
  • Breasts
  • Neck
  • Upper body
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Feet

Reconstructive Surgery Services

Our highly trained reconstructive surgeons use the latest surgical techniques to repair and restore natural body function and appearance. You may need this surgery following accidents, illness, aging, or cancer treatments. It allows people who have experienced life-altering events to enjoy healthier lives.

We offer reconstruction options including (but not limited to):

  • Post-surgery reconstruction — improve cosmetic appearances after invasive surgery (i.e., breast reconstruction after mastectomy).
  • Trauma reconstruction — repair injury resulting from a traumatic accident.

Cosmetic Procedures

We provide a wide array of therapies and treatments to enhance your natural beauty. Our cosmetic procedures include skin treatments and laser hair removal.

Skin procedures

Our skin services renew and rejuvenate your skin.

  • BOTOX® — impedes muscle contraction on the face and neck. The procedure reduces wrinkles and creates a smoother appearance.
  • Dermal fillers — natural or synthetic filler material injected into the skin. Dermal filler softens lines and wrinkles by plumping up the tissue and restoring lost facial volume.

Laser hair removal

Waxing, threading, or electrolysis can be messy, time-consuming, and temporary. We offer laser hair removal using clinically proven laser technology. Benefits include smoother skin, no razor bumps, and no discoloration from tweezing.

Laser hair removal eliminates unwanted hair from:

  • Face
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Bikini area

Hand Surgery Program

We diagnose and treat many conditions of the hands and fingers.

  • Nerve compression syndromes — also known as pinched nerves. They happen when nerves pass through small spaces in the hand and become compressed.
  • Carpal tunnel — swelling of tendons in the wrist puts pressure on the nerve that travels to the hand. This pressure causes numbness in hand and fingers.
  • Cubital tunnel — the nerve from neck to hand can become compressed or irritated. This causes hand pain or numbness.
  • Trigger fingers — swelling of the tendons that flex your fingers. It can cause pain, stiffness, and a sensation of locking or catching when you bend and straighten your finger.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis —autoimmune disorder resulting in inflammation, pain, stiffness. Rheumatoid arthritis can cause permanent damage to joints and internal organs.
  • Degenerative arthritis — painful, swollen joints can happen naturally as you age. They also occur in younger people who are prone to developing arthritis.
  • Cysts and tumors — often appear on the wrist as the result of minor injuries or overuse.
  • Dupuytren's contracture — a hand deformity where knots of tissue form under the skin. These knots create a cord that pulls fingers into a bent position.
  • Congenital differences —malformation of the hand, such as an extra finger.
  • Vasospastic disorders —when small blood vessels near the surface of the skin spasm. This limits blood flow, making hands feel cold.
  • Wrist pain — chronic joint pain that makes small motor movements painful. It can be from arthritis, injury, or over over-activity.
  • Tendonitis — inflammation or irritation of a tendon in the hand. It often comes from a repetitive action like gardening, raking, or playing sports.

We treat all traumatic injuries in the hand, wrist, and forearm, including:

  • Fractures — a broken bone, which can be anything from a small crack to a separated bone that has moved out of place.
  • Tendon injuries — injuries to the soft tissues that connect muscles and joints. They result in pain and swelling.
  • Ligament strains and dislocations — happen when the end of the bone connected to a joint moves out of place.
  • Blood vessel injuries — can happen because of an accident or injury to the hands.
  • Burns — hands can get burned by fire, steam or hot liquids, electricity, or chemicals.
  • Amputated digits and limbs — removal of a body part after an accident or injury.
  • Nerve injury — if a nerve in the hand gets damaged or cut, it can lead to intense pain or sometimes loss of sensation.
  • Neuroma — a painful scar that grows on a damaged nerve.
