Plastic Surgery

 
Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is an outpatient procedure done with general anesthetic most commonly. The preference is to do this in an outpatient setting using a very small incision, generally about one inch long, in the fold of the breast. The recovery from the procedure is very rapid. Stitches are out within seven to ten days and resumption of completely normal activity is allowed within three weeks. Lesser activities such as walking and a light workout can be resumed sooner with the limitation being avoiding strenuous use of the chest muscle. Most patients experience minor discomfort for the first day or two, following which they are able to be out and about without much limitation other than as noted above. Possible complications with the saline inflatable implant include, but are not limited to, deflation, in which case the sterile salt water would be absorbed by the body and the breast would be smaller, rippling or surface irregularities which are seen in a small percentage of patients with the saline implants, scar formation at the incisional site, or scar formation around the implant itself which would cause firmness. The aim of the surgery generally is to make for a natural change in one's figure such that a bathing suit, sweater or dress top will fit properly, while the breasts look and feel soft and natural.

Facelift Surgery
The procedure of facelifting, or cervicofacial rthytidectomy, is an outpatient procedure done with either local anesthesia and sedation or, more commonly nowadays, with a light general anesthetic. The procedure is very safe with scars which are quite well concealed in normal skin creases and in the hair line. Occasionally, an incision is made in the area under the chin in a normal crease as well The patient has a light dressing for approximately three days, following which the patient will be seen in the office, the dressings removed, and bruising can be camouflaged if the patient should like. Within three to seven days, the patient is presentable enough to be out in the usual circumstance. There is usually little pain with facelifting and the recovery is very rapid. Sutures are in place for seven to ten days and, depending upon the patient's preference, a return to work within seven to ten days is also not unusual.
 
Submental Plasty
 
Liposuction Surgery
The procedure of liposuction is currently the most popular of all the cosmetic procedures done in this country. This is an outpatient procedure which can be done either with a general anesthetic or with local anesthesia and sedation, depending upon the number of sites and the extent of the surgery indicated. The procedure was developed approximately thirty years ago and has been steadily refined through the years. The primary benefits of the surgery are that it provides an effective method of contouring various sites on the body, while the incision or incisions are extremely small and almost never problematic or visible. Depending again upon the site or sites being treated, return to work can be quite rapid and return to a full daily routine including exercise can be within a matter of days or a few short weeks. For optimal results, the patient is required to wear a support garment for several weeks after surgery. However, this is usually quite nicely concealed under regular street clothes. Prices for the surgery are determined primarily by the time entailed which is, in itself, determined by the number of surgical sites to be treated.
 
Plastic Surgeon Consultation
 
Abdominoplasty
The procedure of abdominoplasty is beneficial for those patients who have an excess of skin in addition to fat and/or a laxity of the abdominal musculature either from an innate congenital weakness, abdominal surgery or pregnancy. The classic procedure entails tightening the musculature as well as removing the extra skin and fat. In the case where muscle tightening is involved, there are occasions when insurance will pay for this portion of the procedure. Generally, this is an outpatient procedure done with a general anesthetic. Depending upon the extent of the procedure, it may require an overnight hospital stay. Recovery requires avoidance of lifting or strenuous exercise, the procedure may involve a fairly extensive incision across the lower abdomen in the hair line extending toward the hips.
