Dermal Fillers Norfolk

Dermal Fillers are a popular non-surgical way to reverse those unwanted signs of aging. Lines, creases, and wrinkles can make us not only look older but like we are constantly run down and worn out. There are various types of facial rejuvenation treatments available these days, but the important thing to know is what is causing those signs of aging you want to reverse. There are different factors that can lead to these lines and creases occurring such as sun damage, genetics, loss of volume or repetitive muscle movements. Dermal Fillers are specifically designed to target areas of volume loss in the face.

When you lose volume it can create a hollow or sunken-in appearance. Sometimes it isn’t a loss of volume but rather a deficiency of volume that has always been an issue–as is common for those seeking lip enhancement. Dermal fillers can create fuller lips or more defined cheek bones as well as reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Breast Augmentation Norfolk

Breast Augmentation is the most popular of cosmetic surgery procedures. Breast augmentation is performed for a variety of personal reasons with saline or silicone filled breast implants. There are a number of options to consider in a breast augmentation procedure from implant type to implant size, shape, texture, and placement. It is important to be informed of your options so you can make an education decision and choose a procedure plan that will work best for you short term and long term.

Breast augmentation is sometimes performed in combination with a breast lift procedure to both lift and enhance the breasts.

Pellevé Norfolk

Pellevé is a non-invasive facial rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction treatment that is helping our patients achieve smoother, younger looking results. Pellevé is an FDA-approved treatment that utilizes radiofrequency (RF) waves that gently heat the deeper layers of the skin which, in turn, triggers the body’s own natural growth of new collagen. Pellevé is great for those looking for a virtually painless, totally non-invasive way to reduce the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. The Pellevé treatment generally takes about 15-45 minutes to perform. As shown in FDA clinical trials, approximately 90% of patients saw photographic improvements at 6 months after the treatment and 85% saw overall improvement in skin brightness, smoothness, and laxity (what keeps the skin tight).

The facelift, also known as rhytidectomy, is sometimes performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift or eyelid lift to create a more comprehensive rejuvenation.

Excess, sagging skin in the thighs often occurs after a significant weight loss.

The thigh lift may also be performed and paired with a tummy tuck or body lift.

Breast Reduction Norfolk

There is a lot of discussion about Breast Augmentation, after all it is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed today, but not every woman is looking to increase their breast size. Some women have breasts that are disproportionately large for their figure. When the breasts are overly large this can often cause discomfort and pain from the neck down to the back. Women with large breasts often deal with painful indentations from bra straps and skin rashes and irritations. The pain caused by being top heavy can make physical activities that people who don’t have large breasts take for granted impossible. A woman who is top heavy may find it difficult to find clothing she likes and feels comfortable in and some women feel embarrassed of the attention they get due to their breasts.

There are many personal reasons a woman may choose to get Breast Reduction for and each one is valid. Here at Norfolk Plastic Surgery we understand that each woman comes in with her own set of goals and concerns. We work with each patient to find the best procedure plan possible to get them the results they desire. If you are interested in learning more about your Breast Reduction options, contact our office to schedule your consultation today. We look forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals and feel as comfortable and confident in your body as possible!
