Commonly performed after a mastectomy or lumpectomy, the goal of breast reconstruction is to reform or reshape the breast. It involves using remaining tissue or prosthetic material to construct a natural-looking breast. Often this includes the reformation of a natural-looking areola and nipple.
Breast augmentation, or mammoplasty augmentation, involves increasing the breast size, shape, or fullness. Silicone, saline, or alternative composite breast implants are placed under the chest muscles or breast tissue.
Due to genetics, use of certain medications, or other unspecified reasons, some men develop the appearance of enlarged breasts. The most effective known treatment for gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a male breast reduction. This cosmetic procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore the chest to a flatter, firmer and masculine contour.
Burn Reconstruction- Burn survivors are often left with disabling injuries and damage to the skin and soft tissue that prevent them from returning back to their normal lives. Burn reconstruction surgery aims to restore the aesthetic balance and function to injured areas.
Tummy Tuck- Whether due to aging, genetics, pregnancy, or other matters, individuals can develop a protruding abdomen. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
Thigh Lift- A thigh lift is a procedure involving removing excess skin and fat from either the inside or outer thighs. This body contouring procedure is often desirable in individuals whose diet and exercise have failed to reduce excess tissue in their upper thighs after substantial or bariatric weight loss.
Buttock Augmentation- A buttock enhancement, or gluteal augmentation, is used to enhance contour, size, and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done by using buttock implants, fat grafting, or a combination of the two. Buttock implants are often filled with silicone that are surgically placed deep within the buttock's tissues.
Buttock Lift- A buttock lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure which improves the appearance of the buttocks. It may be done as part of a tummy tuck or lower body lift to contour the buttocks, groin, thighs and abdomen.
Arm Lift- An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess skin that falls downward. The underlying supporting tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm is tightened and smoothed. Localized fat pockets in the upper arm region are reduced.
Back Lift- The back lift is a procedure that can create a slimmer, more defined backward contour. This procedure can be performed either as a lower back lift or as an upper back lift and can result in dramatic changes in the shape of the patient. As part of the lower body lift, the lower back lift technique is often performed at once; however, these techniques can also be performed separately.
Body Lift- Body lift surgery is one of the most common procedures used after weight loss surgery to improve the appearance of the body. If you keep your weight stable, it's also long-lasting. Excess, sagging skin is removed along the abdomen. Our surgeon lifts and tightens the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and arms. Liposuction is often used for fat removal and full body contour improvement.
Liposuction- Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo, is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and draws fat from the body. It is often used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back. The fat is removed through a hollow instrument, known as a cannula. This is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.
A brow lift, commonly referred to as a forehead lift, rejuvenates the face above the eyes to restore a more refreshed appearance that better reflects the natural vibrance of the patient. By removing excess sagging, skin on the forehead and repositioning the underlying muscles and tissues, a brow lift can correct a heavy, sagging brow, remove deep furrows, and restore a smoother, more youthful contour to the upper face.
Lip Surgery- Lip augmentation is a type of non-surgical, cosmetic procedure that enhances the appearance of the lips by increasing their fullness through enlargement using fillers.
Neck Lift- Neck lift, also called platysmaplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the neck to address age-related wrinkling and creasing in this area, while providing a smoother, slimmer profile.
Chemical Peels- A chemical peel is a technique used on the face, neck or hands to improve the skin's appearance. A chemical solution that causes it to exfoliate and ultimately peel off is applied to the skin. The treatment is used to improve age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles and moderate skin discoloration.
Chin and Cheek Implants- Chin and cheek augmentation are surgical procedures that insert implants to permanently enhance the facial structure. Chin augmentation, “mentoplasty” or “genioplasty”, increases the projection of the chin, while cheek augmentation, “malar augmentation”, produces a fuller and more sculpted cheek appearance. These two procedures can significantly improve your profile and facial definition to enhance your attractiveness with permanent, predictable results.
Ear Surgery- Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
Eyelid Surgery- Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is an operation that improves the eyelid's appearance. On the upper lids, lower lids or both, surgery can be performed. Eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area around your eyes, whether you want to improve your appearance or experience functional problems with your eyelids.
Facelift- A face-lift (rhytidectomy) is a cosmetic surgical procedure to create a younger appearance in the face. The procedure can reduce the sagging or folds of skin on the cheeks and jawline and other changes in the shape of your face that occur with age. The skin on each side of the face is pulled back, and tissues below the skin are surgically altered to return the contour of the face to a more youthful shape. Before the suture is closed, excess skin is removed.
Nose Surgery- Nose surgery, or a rhinoplasty, involves changing the nose's shape or improve its function. It can be done for medical reasons -- such as to correct breathing problems related to the nose or correct disfigurement resulting from trauma or birth defects. It can also be done for cosmetic reasons, which will change the nose's shape and appearance.
Vaser Shape- VASER Shape is a non-invasive ultrasound and massage therapy treatment that smooths, firms and shapes the body. VASER Shape temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite and increases local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
Laser Vein Ablation- Varicose vein treatment, also known as endovenous ablation, cauterizes and closes varicose veins in the legs using laser energy. It can be used for cosmetic purposes but is most commonly used to help relieve symptoms related to the varicose vein such as pain, swelling, irritation of the skin, discoloration or inflammation. Endogenous ablation is safe, less invasive and leaves virtually no scars.
Laser Hair Removal- Laser hair removal is the process of hair removal by means of exposure to pulses of laser light that destroy the hair follicle. This significantly reduces hair from growing back in the treated areas of the body.
Laser Skin Resurfacing- Laser resurfacing is a treatment for reducing skin irregularities and facial wrinkles, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating light beams on irregular skin, removing skin layer by layer.
Injectables and Fillers
For the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, Botox injections are highly appealing. Botox injections are also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, and lazy eye. Injections of Botox can also help prevent chronic migraines.
Injectable Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected under the skin to restore lost volume, smooth lines and creases, or to enhance the contours of the face. This popular facial rejuvenation treatment has been selected annually by countless men and women. They can be a cost-effective way to look younger without surgery or downtime.
Fat that is harvested by the patient’s own body, such as the abdomen or buttocks, is transferred to the face or lips to achieve a more full, youthful appearance.

Sclerotherapy from Plastic Surgery Innovations
If unsightly or painful varicose or spider veins are starting to make you self-conscious, then we have your solution. Sclerotherapy effectively treats varicose and spider veins. It's often the treatment of choice for small varicose veins. Virtual no down time.
We inject a solution directly into the broken veins using a very small needle. Slowly the veins will collapse within themselves. Once they damaged veins have collapsed, the body will absorb the vein and re-route the blood to healthier veins. The treated veins will fade away within a few weeks. Occasionally it may take a month or so to see full results. Some patients may need additional treatments.
What to Expect:
Most people are able to go back to normal activities the same day. You may see bruising at the injection sites or dark streaks along the vein lines. You may be asked to wear compression stockings for a couple of weeks to quicken the healing process.
