Cosmetic Surgery Options
A facelift is surgical procedure designed to address signs of aging in the face and neck such as deep creases under the lower eyelids or from the nose to the corner of the mouth, loose skin or fatty deposits under the chin creating the illusion of a double chin, and loss of muscle tone in the lower face resulting in jowls. Incisions are typically made from the hairline, around the ear to the lower scalp, but the location and extent of the incision depends on each individual procedure.
Blepharoplasty, Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of the upper or lower eyelids and the area around the eyes. Blepharoplasty can address loose or sagging skin and puffy fatty deposits on the upper eyelids and bags, droopiness, or fine wrinkles associated with the lower lids. Incision locations vary but are often located in an existing eyelid crease to conceal the surgical scar.

Breast Reduction can improve the size and shape of your breasts but also addresses pain and discomfort issues caused by the weight of the breasts. Particulars of breast reduction – such as desired size, post-surgery breast position, and areola changes – are decided between each patient and their surgeon. Incisions for breast reductions are often made around the areola, vertically down to the breast crease, and horizontally along the line of the breast crease.
