Male Breast Reduction Norfolk

Male Breast Reduction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to reduce excess breast tissue in men with Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia is a condition that occurs in many men–some of whom outgrow it, while for others the condition may persist until surgically reversed. The causes of gynecomastia may vary from various drug side effects, hormonal imbalances and other factors. Men with gynecomastia often feel self-conscious of their chest appearance. It can be frustrating because for some men no amount of diet and exercise will reverse the gynecomastia. Male Breast Reduction eliminates the stubborn excess fat and breast tissue to create a more traditional, flat, and toned looking chest appearance.

Ideal candidates for the male breast reduction are in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure and results. In some cases liposuction alone may be able to create the desired results, while for others a slightly more invasive reduction may be needed. To learn more and find out if male breast reduction may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

It is important to be educated about your options for breast augmentation so that you make the best decision for your body and lifestyle.

Breast Reconstruction Norfolk

Breast Reconstruction can be a positive step toward feeling healthy and whole again after losing one or both breasts due to a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other congenital deformities. Breast reconstruction may not be right for every woman–it is a personal decision dependent on preference and your health. There is no right way to move on after the loss of one or both breasts. Breast reconstruction, for those women who opt for it, may be performed in multiple stages either at the time of the mastectomy, or even some time afterwards.

The reconstruction is typically performed using one of two techniques: the flap reconstruction technique (which uses tissue from another area of the patient’s body to rebuild the breast), or a breast implant reconstruction (which uses a saline or silicone breast implant to rebuild the breast). Things to considering when deciding which route may be the best for you include: the type of cancer treatment, the type of mastectomy performed, and body type. Your plastic surgeon will walk you through these options to help you make the most informed decision that is in the best interest for your unique body and situation. If you are interested in learning more about the breast reconstruction procedures and your options, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Botox Norfolk

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a one of the most popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment options performed today. Both men and women are taking advantage of Botox’s ability to smooth out the appearance of unwanted lines and creases that are forming due to repetitive muscle movements in the face. While many people think of Botox as the name of this type of treatment, in fact, it is just one name brand for the botulinum toxin therapy. Other brand names for this treatment include Dysport®, MYOBLOC®, and XEOMIN®.

Administered in just minutes with little to no discomfort, the Botulinum Toxin treatment delivers results that can be seen in as few as 3-7 days and last as long as 3-4 months or longer. No downtime is required afterwards for recovery, so patients can get right back to their daily activities.

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. To learn more about dermal fillers and to find out if they may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

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).
