Cosmetic body surgery

Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging can bring undesirable effects on the body. Plastic surgeons can help restore a proportional body shape and contour by offering fat- and skin- reducing procedures. These procedures are known as “body contouring’ procedures.

Common body contouring procedures include:​​

  • Body lift
  • Liposuction
  • “Mommy Makeover”
  • Thigh lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Upper arm lift

Facial plastic surgery

Facial plastic surgery addresses deformities of the whole face, lips, mouth, jaws, nose, ears, scalp, and/or neck. These deformities can be the result of birth deformities, cancer, accidents, trauma, burns, or previous surgery.

General reconstructive surgery

Reconstructive surgery is done to not only restore function but also appearance. The size, nature, and extent of the injury or deformity will determine what treatment options are best. Reconstructive surgery frequently demands complex planning. To select the best option, the plastic surgeon should be able to routinely perform even the most complex options.

Pediatric and craniofacial plastic surgery

Pediatric plastic surgery addresses deformities of the face, body, and extremities that are caused by birth defects, trauma, and tumors.
