Our expert surgeons are dedicated to cosmetic enhancement and offer a comfortable and pressure-free environment where you can explore the following cosmetic surgery options:

  • Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty): You may opt for an eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, if you feel your eyes have a tired or sad-eye appearance that makes you look older than you feel. The procedure removes drooping skin from the upper eyelids and minimizing bags under the eyes by removing excess fat and tissue.
  • Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can improve the contour and appearance of your lower abdomen. Following pregnancies or significant weight loss, the abdominal area is often left with excess fat and loose, sagging skin. In an abdominoplasty, excess tissue is removed and the muscles of your abdominal wall are tightened.
  • Breast Enlargement: Breast enlargement (also called breast enhancement or breast augmentation) can give you fuller, shapelier breasts. Breast augmentation can correct uneven breasts or restore natural breast volume that may have decreased following pregnancy.
  • Breast Lift: As the skin loses elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. A breast lift reshapes sagging breasts and lifts them to a more aesthetically pleasing position. If the size of your breasts is also a concern, a breast lift can be combined with breast enlargement or reduction.
  • Breast Reduction: Breast reduction removes excess breast tissue and skin if you have exceptionally large breasts and symptoms of back pain, shoulder pain, grooving of your shoulders from your bra, and skin breakdown.
  • Brow / Forehead Lift: A brow/forehead lift eliminates a heavy appearance or overhanging of your brow and forehead. It corrects brow position and allows the upper portion of your face to have a more open and rested appearance.
  • Cheek Augmentation: The goal of cheek augmentation is to improve the appearance and prominence of your cheeks by bringing them into balance with the rest of the face. The procedure, which involves the use of implants typically made of hard silicone, was originally used to repair birth defects or injuries.
  • Chin Augmentation: When the shape of your profile is off-balance due to a weak or receding chin, chin augmentation may be an option.
  • Ear Reconstruction (Otoplasty): Ear reconstruction is performed to correct ears that stick out too far from your head.
  • Facelift (Rhytidectomy): A facelift, or rhytidectomy, smooths loose skin on your face and neck by tightening the underlying tissue.
  • Neck Lift: If you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you may have excess fat and skin on your neck that you can’t do anything about. Or, if weakened or loose neck muscles are in your genes and cause bands of skin to appear on your neck, you may wish to consider neck lift surgery.
  • Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty): Nose reshaping, or rhinoplasty, involves changing the underlying structures of your nose to improve its appearance. The procedure can increase or reduce the size of your nose, or change the shape of the tip and bridge. Rhinoplasty also may be used to help correct breathing problems.
  • Arm Tuck (Brachioplasty): An arm tuck, or brachioplasty, can help improve the appearance of your arms if aging or significant weight loss causes the skin to appear loose and lax.
  • Liposuction: Liposuction removes excess fat from specific areas of your face, neck or body. Liposuction often targets those stubborn areas of fat that are hard to change with diet and exercise. In removing excess fat, liposuction can improve the contour of desired areas and create a smoother, more proportioned appearance.
  • Thigh / Buttock Lift: A thigh/buttock lift can improve loose tissue in your thigh, along with a saggy appearance of your buttocks. Tightening and lifting your excess skin and tissue can dramatically improve the contour and appearance of your lower body.
