Your Chest And Breast

If you often wish that your breast were larger, fuller or more shapely, breast surgery may be what you are looking for. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that uses implants to enlarge and shape the breasts. Breast lifting can place the breasts up higher on the chest wall (breast ptosis is common after childbirth, nursing and/or weight loss). For some, reducing the breast size may be what they want. Breast reduction surgery can relieve back and shoulder pain associated with large, heavy, droopy breasts.

For men who want to improve their proportions, pectoralis implants may be the way to achieve their goals. Your new look with bring you greater freedom with fashion and may give your self image a boost as well. Click to learn more.

Your Face And Neck

While no one is immune to the effects of aging, cosmetic surgery of the face and neck can dramatically reduce the most visible signs of getting older.
Some of the most visible signs of aging first appear on the face. Although the changes appear gradually, there may come a day when you look in the mirror and decide that the face you see doesn’t reflect the way you feel about yourself. If you’d like to look as good as you feel about yourself, a facelift can help. Also known as rhytidectomy, a facelift smoothes the loose skin on your face and neck, tightens underlying tissues and removes excess fat. As a result, your face will appear firmer and fresher.

More than any other facial feature, your eyes reveal the most about how you feel. When your eyes are bright and alert, you appear energized, well-rested, and in control. However, if you have lower-eyelid puffiness, dark circles or drooping upper lids, others may assure that you are fatigued, angry or unhappy.

If you believe that your eyes are making you look tired, sad, or older than you really feel, cosmetic eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty) may be the right choice for you. Eyelid surgery can remove the excess fat and drooping skin of the upper eyelids, minimize bags under the eyes and tighten the lower eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance.

In a forehead lift, the muscles and skin that cause the problems are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the upper eyelids and minimize frown lines. The result can be a more alert, more animated, more youthful appearance. Recent advances in plastic surgery have made the forehead lift a relatively simple procedure with results that last from five to 10 years or longer. Click to learn more.

Your Body

In today’s world, looking and feeling good mean having a fit, well-proportioned body. However, for many people, this may seem like an unreachable goal. Sometimes even a strict diet or a disciplined exercise program can’t conquer stubborn areas of excess fat. For those who seek a smoother or better-proportioned body contour, liposuction and/or tummy tuck may be the answer. Click to learn more.
