The effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and stress can be seen in our faces as we age. For example, deep creases form between the nose and mouth; the jawline can grow slack making us appear jowly and folds and fat deposits start to appear around the neck. A facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, can't stop this aging process. But it can turn back time, improving the most visible signs of aging, by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and re-draping the skin of your face and neck. A facelift can be done as a stand-alone procedure or in conjunction with others such as a forehead lift, eyelid surgery, or nose reshaping. Ask us about a program that is right for you or click on the link for a full brochure and additional information. Some people only require a neck lift or just lifting the face without the neck.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is designed to remove the excess fat, skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids.

Cosmetic nose surgery or rhinoplasty, is designed to reduce excess cartilage and bone in the nose, removing irregularities and bumps to give a straightened, smooth and, sometines smaller appearance.

Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast for a number of reasons. These include enhancement of the body contour, correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, and to balance a difference in breast size, or as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery. By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman's bustline by one or more bra cup sizes.

Over the years, certain factors such as gravity take their toll on a woman's breasts. As a result of skin loosing its elasticity, breasts often lose shape and firmness and may begin to sag. The surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts, is a breastlift or "Mastopexy". Although no surgery delay the effects of gravity permanently, Mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size (with implants). If you're considering a breast lift, ask us more about when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect.

Breast reduction, known as reduction mammaplasty, for women with very large, pendulous breasts. These women sometimes experience medical problems caused by the excessive weight, such as back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Mammaplasty is a procedure that removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer, as well as a reduction in the size of the areola, the darker area surrounding the nipple. The goal of breast reduction is to give women smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of their body.

Dermabrasion and dermaplaning are skin-refinishing techniques to help smooth the skin's top layers through a method of controlled surgical scraping.
