  • Cosmetic procedures

    • Abdominoplasty - A variety of procedures are available to recontour the abdomen, including standard and modified tucks, with or without liposuction.
    • Body contouring - This is a means of reshaping the effects of nature or time. With the advent of minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as endoscopy and small cannula liposuction, contouring surgeries are now less invasive and more effective.
    • Breast augmentation (mammoplasty) - Patients who have small breasts or who have lost volume due to pregnancy can increase the size and improve (change/alter) the shape of their breasts with FDA-approved implants. Endoscopic insertion of implants may also be used in some cases.
    • Breast lift (mastopexy) - The sagging breast can be surgically lifted, with or without the use of implants, to create a more youthful looking bustline.
    • Breast reduction - Women who have large breasts may experience a number of related problems. Surgical reduction may increase comfort and mobility.
    • Chin augmentation and reduction - Surgery can build up a small chin or modify a prominent chin.
    • Face, eyelid, and brow lifts - A variety of techniques may be used to achieve a natural look, including minimally invasive endoscopic surgery.
    • Facial liposuction - This is a popular procedure for removing fat deposits within the chin, neck, cheeks or jowls.
    • Lip enhancement/augmentation - These procedures improve the appearance of thinning lips by adding definition.
    • Liposuction - This procedure removes "stubborn" pockets of fat from difficult figure areas, including the hips, thighs, buttocks and knees.
    • Neck lifts - Contouring of the aging neck can be improved with liposculpture or surgical lifting. 
    • Otoplasty - This procedure surgically corrects protruding or misshapen ears to bring them closer to the head or change their shape.
    • Refining the face and neck - Surgery can improve the "sags, bags and bulges" that accompany the aging process. Surgery also may be used to re-sculpt features you were born with, in order to provide a more pleasing and proportioned face.
    • Rhinoplasty - The nose is resculpted to obtain a more proportioned look or to correct damage after trauma.
