IMPLANTS / BREAST AUGMENTATION
is a surgical procedure used to enhance the size of women’s
breasts when she is not satisfied with the size of her breasts,
or when they have lost volume due to a previous

BREAST LIFT (with Implants)
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift
raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and
tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new
A breast lift with implants is a combination procedure that
raises sagging breasts while also increasing a woman’s cup size.
A mastopexy with breast augmentation also benefits breast lift
patients by keeping breasts firm and perky for many years.
Breast reduction, or reduction
mammaplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reduce
the size of the breasts by removing fat, tissue, and skin.
Patients who undergo breast reduction usually seek relief of
physical pain caused by overly large breasts, rather than simple
Gynecomastia is the technical term for
enlarged male breasts. The causes of gynecomastia vary, but, due
to recent advances in male breast reduction surgery, the
condition can be treated.
LIPOSUCTION / LIPOSCULTURE / LIPOASPIRATION
Often used in conjunction with other plastic surgery techniques,
liposuction removes pockets of fat from troublesome areas such
as the thighs, hips, abdomen, and upper arms. Liposuction
procedures vary depending on what your ultimate cosmetic goal is,
and whether you are combining liposuction with other plastic
Achieving a flatter, tighter
abdominal area is a goal for many people, women and men alike.
There are a variety of reasons why someone may be dissatisfied
with his or her waistline and abdomen, and the "tummy tuck"
procedure, or abdominoplasty, might be an appropriate option for
achieving a slimmer, more aesthetically
appealing abdominal contour.
Thighplasty, or thigh lift surgery, is a popular cosmetic
surgery option for patients seeking firmer, more attractive
upper legs. Like other area specific body lifts, thighplasty
helps tone and tighten excess, loose, or hanging skin. There are
several different types of thigh lift procedures that may be
performed, depending upon the patient’s needs and goals.
Surgeons can use a bilateral, medial, or inner thigh lift to
safely remove excess skin. Thigh lift surgery is commonly
performed in conjunction with liposuction surgery for even
Brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an arm lift,
is a procedure used to remove excess skin in the upper arm. Skin
commonly loses its elasticity throughout the arms as a result of
natural aging or rapid weight loss. Arm lift surgery tightens
and tones the upper arms, restoring a youthful contour. Patients
with excess fat on their arms may elect to have liposuction
performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for even
more dramatic results. Many patients, who had previously been
fearful of wearing revealing clothing or of raising their arms
over their heads report an increase in self-confidence after the
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT
Buttocks lift surgery, also called
“Brazilian butt lift surgery,” is an increasingly common plastic
surgery technique intended to firm and enhance a patient’s rear
end. Like other body lifts, butt lift surgery is useful for
removing excess skin while toning and tightening the remaining
skin. In the Brazilian butt lift, a patient’s butt is enhanced
using purified fat cells from elsewhere in the body. Patients
achieve a rounder, fuller, firmer buttock using their own tissue
and without the need for butt implants. Butt lift surgery has
been shown to be both safe and effective while providing
patients with long-lasting, beautiful results. Many butt lift
patients report increased self-confidence after the procedure.
Buttock augmentation involves the insertion of
butt implants to enhance the shape, size, and
appearance of the rear end. Butt implants can be used to add
curves and definition to the buttocks, in women and men alike.
Some butt implant patients feel their buttocks lack shape, while
others want to have a more sensuous rear end by making it fuller
(Post Weight Loss Cosmetic Surgery).
Patients with extensive amounts of excess or hanging skin in
multiple areas of the body may benefit from a more inclusive,
larger scale body lift procedure. More extensive body lift
procedures can target the entire body (a total body lift) or
specific regions (upper, mid, or lower body lifts). Total body
lifts are useful to patients who have lost skin elasticity all
over their body. Although full body lift surgery is a complex
surgery requiring an extended period of recovery, doctors are
often able to achieve the best overall aesthetic results with
this treatment. Full body lifts address every part of a
patient’s body where fat and excess skin frequently accumulate:
the arms, breasts, buttocks, hips, thighs, and abdomen.
Labiaplasty (labia reduction & beautification) and other female
cosmetic surgical procedures including Vaginoplasty (rejuvenation
or tightening of the vagina) and Clitoral Unhooding (Hoodectomy),
are becoming more popular as social acceptance of these cosmetic
and reconstructive procedures continues toward mainstream. Labia
surgery, which usually involves labia reduction—and vaginal
rejuvenation, or tightening, are becoming as common today as
other cosmetic procedures, including tummy tucks and breast
augmentation. New advancements and techniques in Labiaplasty and
Vaginoplasty typically lessen scarring, pain, recovery time, and
show excellent results in the area sometimes referred to as
Vaginal Cosmetic Surgery.
