Chemical Peel Norfolk

The Chemical Peel is a facial rejuvenation treatment performed to refresh the skin of the face by removing the damaged outer layer of the skin to reveal the fresh, new, undamaged skin beneath. There are various strengths of chemical peels–the stronger the peel, the deeper it penetrates into the layers of the skin, and also the longer the recovery period afterwards. Individuals who are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation, or blemishes may find the improvements they desire through the chemical peel. Chemical Peel solutions may be calibrated to each patient’s individual needs, skin type, and goals.

The Chemical Peel can also remove pre-cancerious skin growths, soften acne facial scars and help control acne. To learn more about chemical peels and to find out if they may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Lip Augmentation Norfolk

Lip Augmentation has helped many people reduce signs of aging around the lips and/or enhance thin lips to create a more full, pouty appearance. There are a number of factors that contribute to how, when, and where we show signs of aging. Heredity, lifestyle, and sun exposure can all contribute to the acceleration of our lines, creases, and wrinkles. As we approach facial rejuvenation treatments to correct this concerns, it is important that we first identify the underlying cause as different facial rejuvenation treatments work best for different causes. Dermal Fillers, for example, are used to combat the loss of volume.

Lip Augmentation may be achieved using a few different methods, but one of the most popular is through the use of dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are administered via injection and can plump thin lips, enhance shallow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of scars.

Nose Surgery Norfolk

Nose Surgery, also called Rhinoplasty, is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the nose and/or the function of the nose. Many people are dissatisfied with an aspect of the appearance of the nose they were born with and Nose Surgery can help create the nose they want, the nose that best compliments their other features. Sometimes the nose is disfigured due to injury and nose surgery can help correct that as well.

As the central feature of the face, the nose can affect the entire facial balance and harmony and can change the way we perceive the proportions of the other features of the face. Nose surgery can correct nose width, bumps and indentations, the tip of the nose being too large/bulbous/downturned/upturned, nostrils that are too wide or large, and nasal asymmetry or deviation.

Breast Reduction Norfolk

Breast Reduction can be a life changing procedure for women who have suffered with back, neck, and shoulder pain due to the excess weight on their chest. Women with overly large breasts, in addition to physical discomfort, often feel self-conscious about their breast size, and may find it difficult to find clothing that fits appropriately. Some find that physical activity is too uncomfortable to enjoy due to their disproportionately large breasts. All of these issues limit a person’s activity and enjoyment as they move through life. The breast reduction can help a woman feel more comfortable and confident in her body.

Breast Reduction surgery, also called a Reduction Mammaplasty, is performed by removing the excess fat, glanduar tissue and skin to create smaller, lighter breasts.

Breast Lift Norfolk

The Breast Lift procedure has helped countless women revitalize their breasts as they’ve gotten older, after weight fluctuations, or after pregnancy and nursing.  Many women feel self-conscious when their breasts begin to sag, and in some cases the breast sagging can seem premature or more severe. The Breast Lift procedure is performed to lift the breasts to a more youthful and perky position. In some cases, the breast lift may include a repositioning of the areola as well.

It is important to understand that the breast lift procedure alone is not intended to enhance breast size, so patients looking to achieve both a fuller breast and lifted breast position may opt to combine the breast lift procedure with a breast augmentation to achieve their desired goal.
