Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Services for Women
Breast Augmentation (breast enlargement)
Breast enlargement, or augmentation mammaplasty, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. More than 325,000 women per year* choose this procedure to improve the contour of their breasts. Implants can increase breast size, enhance shape, correct proportional imbalances, and improve firmness. More Information on Breast Augmentation
Mastopexy (breast lift)
The procedure known as mastopexy may help to lift and firm the breasts. By removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple, a breast lift can return your breasts to a more youthful shape and position. Surgical techniques vary, depending on the amount of correction desired. More Information on Breast Lift
Many women seek reduction mammaplasty to alleviate back and neck problems caused by the excessive weight of their breasts. By removing excess breast tissue, you may achieve better body proportions, lessen self-consciousness about your breast size, and become more physically active. This is a highly individualized procedure. More Information on Breast Reduction
Breast implants are not guaranteed for a lifetime. It’s not unusual to need more than one surgery to counteract the effects of aging, pregnancy, and breastfeeding, and to maintain the youthful position and fullness of your breasts. More Information on Breast Revision
When diet and exercise fail to smooth out localized fat deposits, a procedure known as liposuction may help. There are three common liposuction techniques available for contouring hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, arms, chest, and abdomen. Talk to your doctor about the technique that is right for you. Initial results may appear in 2-4 weeks. More information on Liposuction
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is often the procedure of choice for restoring patients to their pre-pregnancy or pre-weight gain body shape. By removing excess skin and tightening stomach muscles, the procedure can create a smoother abdominal profile. This procedure is frequently performed in combination with liposuction.

Brachioplasty (Upper arm reduction)
Excess skin and fat on the upper arm can be reduced with a brachioplasty, or arm lift. Sometimes, even exercise cannot tone arms that have weakened tissues due to weight loss, aging, or even genetics. An upper arm reduction removes sagging skin and fat deposits between the underarm and the elbow, leaving a more contoured appearance. More Information on Upper arm reduction
Thigh or Buttock lift
A thigh lift, or thighplasty, is a popular procedure for patients who have excess soft tissue along the inner and outer thighs. Often, the effects of age or massive weight loss can result in poor skin elasticity on the upper portion of the legs. A thigh lift can help to reduce the excess skin and return the legs to a smoother, more youthful contour. More Information on Thigh or Buttock lift
Surgery After Massive Weight Loss (including lower body lift)
Patients who have lost a large amount of weight are often left with excess, saggy skin around their thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. Either a lower body lift or a belt lipectomy may be most appropriate. These surgeries are not designed to help you lose weight, but to re-contour your lower body. Massive Weight Loss Surgery
Today’s facelift, known as a rhytidectomy, is more natural-looking, and longer lasting than ever before. More than 100,000 men and women per year* choose this procedure to lessen the signs of visible aging in the face and neck. By removing lax skin, repositioning and reducing fat deposits, and tightening muscles, your surgeon may restore you to a more youthful, rested appearance.

A brow lift is a popular procedure, especially for men and women wishing to smooth wrinkles and return a more rested, youthful look to their foreheads. Brow lift surgery can be achieved through small incisions, hidden within the hairline. It is often performed in conjunction with a facelift, eyelid surgery, dermal fillers and/or skin treatments.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
Eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, helps more than 230,000 people per year* regain a younger, firmer looking eye area. Candidates for this procedure may have excess skin that hides the natural contour of the eye or impairs vision. Surgery can be performed on either the lower or upper eyelids or both, for a more balanced correction. Blepharoplasty & Browlift | More Information
Each year, more than 300,000* people choose rhinoplasty, the second most common facial plastic surgery procedure. Because the nose is the most defining characteristic of the face, a slight alteration can greatly enhance facial harmony. Surgery can change nose size and width, contour the nasal tip and nostrils, and correct impaired breathing. More Information
Fuller, smoother lips can be yours. Injectable fillers like Juvederm™ fill depressions and lines around the mouth and add contours. Results often last up to one year.
Men and women of all ages may choose skin resurfacing to remove damaged upper layers of skin. Lasers, chemical solutions, and mechanical techniques such as dermabrasion allow healthy, deeper levels of skin to grow with less apparent damage. The general result is brighter skin with fewer wrinkles, smaller pores, and better texture. More Information from Plasticsurgery.org
BOTOX is the most common medical cosmetic treatment, with more than three million treatments performed per year. It is most commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles such as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines for patients of any age. As you continue BOTOX treatments, each subsequent treatment will last longer. Botox Injections
Dermal fillers add volume to your skin and help restore structure to your deeper tissues. Injections can reduce smile lines, elevate down-turning corners of the mouth, remove vertical lip lines, add definition to lips, enhance cheeks, plump away forehead lines, and smooth acne scars and creases between the eyebrows. More information on Dermal Fillers
Unwanted fat can be harvested from your own body and injected into more favorable areas to enhance facial fullness, fill deep creases, and build up shallow contours. Liposuction techniques extract the fat, which can be used immediately or stored for future treatment. Treatment results last up to a year or more.
Soft Tissue Implants (cheek, lip, chin)
Soft tissue augmentation can help bring a more harmonious balance to your face by strengthening the jawline or bringing out the chin and cheekbones. Patients choose implants to reshape the face and improve proportions or to fill out a face that appears sunken or tired. Many implants are available, made from a variety of materials.
Otoplasty (ear pinning)
This procedure, also known as ear pinning surgery, is an effective choice for setting prominent ears closer to the head. In most cases, ear surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure, giving remarkable results with little downtime for the patient. More Information
Spider Vein Therapy (laser and injections)
Spider veins are small, thin veins that are noticeable on the surface of the skin. Pregnancy, weight gain, aging, prolonged continuous sitting or standing, genetics, hormones, and the use of certain medications are all causes of spider veins. Leg veins as well as hand, facial, and unwanted veins on other parts of the body may be treated. Spider Vein Treatments
