Feel Fit with an Arm Lift

As we grow older, the skin on your body can start to sag. This can be very frustrating when it happens on the areas of the body that can’t be easily hidden, like your arms.

Loose dangling flaps of skin can make you feel self-conscious about wearing sleeveless shirts or raising your arms too high in public situations. If you don’t like the way your arms look, an arm lift, or brachioplasty, might be the solution for you.

In an arm lift, your plastic surgeon will use their surgical expertise to aesthetically reshape the underside of your upper arm and contour the space from the underarm to the elbow.

Botox for a Younger Appearance

When you get older, one of the first signs of aging is the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around your eyes, nose, and mouth. Each day you look in the mirror, the face you see grows more worn, tired, and haggard. But it doesn’t have to be this way, thanks to Botox.

Botox is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin type A, which comes in a simple non-surgical cosmetic injection. The product is injected into targeted muscles, where it blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles that create wrinkles. Botox injections cause the muscles to relax, allowing the overlying skin to appear smoother.

Double-board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie can help you defy the look of aging. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!

Brow Lift Procedure – Forehead Lift Norfolk

A tired, older appearance may sometimes be attributed to the aging that happens around the eyebrows and forehead. Creases along the forehead, crow’s feet and deep furrows may give off the appearance of exhaustion and sleepiness. If you are concerned about this development on your forehead, it may be time for a brow lift.

A brow lift can rejuvenate your appearance and refresh your expression. Aged skin sags and creases more easily, which may cause the skin of the forehead to droop and the eyebrows the hood forward. The sleepy appearance can undermine your confidence and leave you looking much older.

With a brow lift, an incision is made along the hairline, and the skin of the forehead is tightened and raised.

Consult with experienced plastic surgeons Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie to learn more about the brow lift.

Please feel free to reach us at our office in Norfolk if you’d like to schedule a consultation.

Body Contouring after Major Weight Loss

Once an overweight person loses excess weight through diet and exercise, it’s not uncommon to have layers of excess skin afterwards. After working so hard to lose the weight, it can be frustrating to have this stretched-out skin draping over a newly thinner frame.Fortunately, there is something that can be done about this undesirable situation. In the plastic surgery world, it is referred to as body contouring after major weight loss.

Some of the more common body-contouring procedures that help reduce excess skin include the body lift, breast lift, arm lift, and thigh lift.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, body contouring after major weight loss can improve one’s shape and tone the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin; it also removes the excess sagging fat and skin.The results of body contouring after major weight loss are immediately visible. However, it’s important to note that the final finished product may take one or two years to achieve depending on the procedures performed and the time it takes to fully heal.

Liposuction — Norfolk Surgery Techniques

Stubborn body fat seems to linger regardless of the work we put into perfecting our figure. If exercise and a healthy diet aren’t creating the body you want, you may be a good candidate for body contouring through liposuction surgery.

Liposuction surgery is a highly popular procedure that can be performed using several techniques. Incision techniques have improved to the point where the incision size required has been dramatically reduced. In addition, a liquid solution is injected beforehand to help reduce blood loss and trauma, making it easier to suction out the fat.

Liposuction uses a small cannula to suction out the unwanted fat, which creates a safer, more efficient process.

To set up an appointment for liposuction surgery, contact experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Lawrence Colen at our Norfolk office. From there, he can assess your goals and specific surgical needs. This process will also help determine which liposuction technique is right for you.

Breast Reduction — Norfolk Size Correction

The primary function of a breast reduction is to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess tissue and skin. Considering every patient is different and the amount of reduction needed depends on the individual, there is more than just one way to execute the surgery. There are several incision options available.

When it comes to the incision for a breast reduction, a patient can opt for a circular pattern around the areola.

A keyhole-shaped pattern is similar to the first one but has an added incision running vertical down to the crease of the breast.

The inverted-T, or anchor-shaped, incision gets its name because it is shaped like an anchor. It is similar to the keyhole, except it also runs along the crease of the breast. This is the most comprehensive incision pattern used for the more dramatic breast reductions.

Breast Augmentation – Incision Locations Norfolk

A breast augmentation is an exciting procedure that offers women a chance to enhance their look. Breast augmentations involve the insertion of breast implants through carefully made incisions.

There are generally four possible locations where experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Lawrence Colen and Dr. Theodore Uroskie can make an incision. This will depend on many factors, including your aesthetic goals.

The four major breast augmentation incision options are inframammary, transaxillary, transumbilical and periareolar. In that order, these techniques involve incisions under the breast fold, in the armpit, underneath the belly button and around the areola.

Sometimes, breast implants are placed underneath muscle; other times, they are placed above it. The decision will be between you and your surgeon.
