Lipoplasty — Fat Removal Norfolk Liposuction

Trying to shed the fat from those stubborn trouble areas can be extremely tricky. Even the most disciplined diet can prove ineffective at times. When you hit this type of wall, it can start to feel hopeless. Both genders struggle with problem areas as they search for answers. The obstinate fat can quickly be removed to your liking with a lipoplasty procedure.

Lipoplasty is a body-contouring procedure that carefully extracts the fat out of targeted areas of the body with specialized suctioning tubes. Virtually any body part can be sculpted to perfection with liposuction.

Combining procedures such as various lifts (tummy, arm, thigh) may be considered in conjunction with liposuction.

To learn more about lipoplasty, contact Norfolk Plastic Surgery, located in Virginia, to schedule your consultation with experienced plastic surgeons Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie.

Juvederm XC — Anti-Aging Norfolk Injections

The desire to maintain a youthful look is a powerful one. Injectable fillers offer facial rejuvenation, and, unlike surgical rejuvenation procedures, they require no downtime. Juvederm XC is among the leading treatment options in this area.

Juvederm XC is comprised of hyaluronic acid, which is a solution found naturally in our skin. It can help hydrate the skin and soften wrinkles by adding volume to targeted areas of the face. By injecting the treatment under the skin, the hyaluronic acid can reduce the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles.

Other popular brands of dermal fillers are also available at our office. To learn more about Juvederm XC or any other available injectable fillers we offer, contact Dr. Lawrence Colen or Dr. Theodore Uroskie, both of whom are experienced plastic surgeons at Norfolk Plastic Surgery.

Lipoplasty Preparation — Norfolk Consultation

Lipoplasty preparation is a critical phase of lipoplasty, offering patients an opportunity to clear their schedule and double-check overall health in anticipation of the fat-extraction procedure.

With lipoplasty, also known as liposuction, it helps to know what to expect. Liposuction has three major steps: preparation, surgery and recovery.

During lipoplasty preparation, you will have a thorough consultation with either Dr. Lawrence Colen or Dr. Theodore Uroskie, both of whom are experienced plastic surgeons. When it comes to consultations at Norfolk Plastic Surgery in Virginia, we always make sure to discuss and address patients’ specific goals and seek to provide the best experience possible with pleasing results.

You will also be asked to follow some precautionary steps. You may be told to get a lab test or medical evaluation, take or adjust certain medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin. Depending on the type and amount of liposuction you receive, you’ll need to schedule someone to pick you up and stay with you for one night after your procedure is done.

Restylane — Non-Surgical Injectable Norfolk

A variety of wrinkles form on our faces, from fine lines all the way to deep folds. These unpleasant signs of aging are common for most people. As you may already know, we lose skin elasticity and volume over time. Thankfully, Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that is effective in softening the appearance of lines.

The development of creases and lines is a natural aspect of the aging process. Wrinkles identified as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines can be the most notorious of the bunch.

Restylane, a hyaluronic acid, excels as a dermal injection in part due to its ability to hold volume over a long period of time. Once injected, the benefits can last up to a year. Adding volume to moderate and deep wrinkles minimizes their appearance.

To learn more about Restylane, contact the plastic surgeons at Norfolk Plastic Surgery to set up an appointment.

Breast Implants — Insertion Locations Norfolk

By inserting breast implants behind the breasts, Drs. Lawrence Colen and Theodore Uroskie use their skill and expertise to increase a woman’s bustline while simultaneously improving the shape. If you’re considering breast implants, this blog post will give you a basic understanding of some procedure options.

Working through the incisions, our surgeons will gently lift the breast tissue along with the skin to create a pocket either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest muscle (subpectoral insertion). A third option is a dual plane insertion, where the implant is placed half in front of the muscle and half behind it. The implants are then symmetrically aligned beneath the nipples.

It’s important to note that there are benefits and drawbacks to each surgical technique utilized for the implant placement. These decisions are discussed in great length during a one-on-one sit down with your surgeon.

Rhinoplasty — Asymmetry Norfolk Nose Surgery

It’s not uncommon for some to struggle with asymmetric nostrils. The issue can be the result of either a trauma or heredity. People concerned with asymmetry of the nose are encouraged to visit the skilled professionals at Norfolk Plastic Surgery to discuss the benefits of rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is a popular and effective way to correct any number of aesthetic or functional issues affecting the nasal structure. When it comes to asymmetry, the dividing wall of the nose, also known as the caudal septum, is typically the cause. The correction for this would begin with repositioning or removing the deviated portion of cartilage in the caudal septum.

During this process, our surgeons can also correct any issues that may be present with the shape or size of the nose.

Juvederm — Norfolk Non-Surgical Dermal Filler

Juvederm XC is an injectable dermal filler designed to smooth fine lines and wrinkles by adding temporary volume underneath the skin. This fills in wrinkles and provides natural-looking results. These non-surgical treatments serve as a fantastic alternative to more invasive and costly techniques that usually lead to weeks of recovery.

Made from a substance found naturally in the skin, this hyaluronic-acid based product is extremely safe and can even help moisturize the skin and promote collagen growth. Once injected, Juvederm works instantly to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by restoring some of the lost skin volume that occurs naturally over time.

To set up your appointment for a quick and easy Juvederm session, contact Norfolk Plastic Surgery. You can be out of the office and feeling rejuvenated in less than 30 minutes.

Eyelid Surgery — Norfolk Facial Procedure

If you’re experiencing drooping eyelids due to excess skin and would like to do something about it, the trained professionals at Norfolk Plastic Surgery are uniquely qualified to offer up a surgical rejuvenation procedure known as a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.

Eyelid surgery is designed to reduce the excess skin and fat on the eyelids. In some cases, this extra skin can even interfere with a person’s vision. This outpatient procedure involves incisions along the crease of the eyelid. Typically, these incisions are barely visible and fade over time. Incisions can also be made inside the eyelid, which is more discrete. Eyelid surgery can be done on either the upper or lower eyelid.

To learn more about eyelid surgery, contact our offices to set up a private consultation.

Brow Lift — Norfolk Combination Facial Surgery

Many people don’t realize that a facelift alone is generally designed to treat the mid-to-lower portion of the face. This leaves the area above the eyes relatively untouched. However, adding a brow lift to your facial surgery can generate a more dramatic improvement for your overall look.

Brow lift surgery is designed to raise drooping foreheads and brows, which in turn reduces the appearance of frown lines and opens the eyes more. When combined with a facelift, it can create a more refreshed and youthful appearance.

Keep in mind that there are several types of brow lift procedures that can be performed, each with their own set of advantages. In order to map out the best course of action for your facial procedure, contact Norfolk Plastic Surgery to arrange a consultation with one of our highly trained and experienced surgeons.
