Breast Reduction Norfolk

Breast Reduction surgery can be a life-changing procedure for many women who have struggled with discomfort due to overly large breasts. The excess weight on the chest can put a strain on many areas of the body and effect many areas of a woman’s life. The neck, back, and shoulders can experience daily pain, and there can be painful indentations caused by bra straps. Physical exercise and activities can be too uncomfortable to enjoy. Even sleeping can be disrupted by the excess weight on the chest. For some women, it isn’t so much the physical discomfort as the emotional discomfort and self-consciousness they feel about having disproportionately large breasts that motivates them to seek out Breast Reduction surgery.
If you are interested in learning more about the breast reduction surgery, recovery, and potential results, contact our office to schedule your consultation today. Ideal candidates should be healthy, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and potential results.

Arm Lift Norfolk

The Arm Lift, also called Brachioplasty, is a procedure that is performed to improve the upper arms. Many people struggle with the appearance of their upper arms, especially as they get older or after a weight loss when excess, sagging skin is left over. The arm lift procedure is performed under anesthesia and the surgical incision may be made either in the inner arm from elbow to underarm, or along the back of the arm from elbow to underarm, or if there is only a minimal amount of rejuvenation required to achieve the goal, the incision may be made solely in the underarm area. This incision will leave a permanent scar that will fade over time, but never completely go away.

 

Sometimes patients may combine liposuction with brachioplasty to also address stubborn localized fat in the area. If you are interested in learning more about the brachioplasty procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Brachioplasty Norfolk

There are a few reasons people may be considering an Arm Lift Surgery, also known as Brachioplasty. The effects of dramatic weight loss often leave people with excess, sagging skin on their body, including the backside or lower part of the arms. Sometimes, due to genetic reasons or aging the backside of the arms can have excessive hanging skin and/or fat deposits which can be resistant to diet and exercise. Improvements to arms with these issues can be made with Brachioplasty.

 

Brachioplasty is a procedure which removes the excess sagging skin from the arm. The incision will be made in as inconspicuous position as possible to reduce the visibility of a scar after surgery. Often Liposuction may be done in conjunction with the Arm Lift surgery for optimum results. Other Body Contouring procedures may also be performed depending on the need of the patient such as a Breast Lift, Tummy Tuck, or Face and Neck Lift for the best overall results. Contact our office today to find out what your Body Contouring options are. 

Breast Lift Norfolk

Breast lift surgery, also called Mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the breasts after sagging has set in. As we get older there are a number of changes that occur from our faces all the way down our bodies. It effects each of us in different ways and areas. There are certain factors that can especially speed up sagging in the breasts. Pregnancy, nursing, fluctuations in weight or weight loss, as well as the natural aging process, genetics, and gravity can all contribute to a more exaggerated sagging appearance.

It is important to know that the breast lift alone does not enhance breast size, so women looking to both enhance their breast fullness as well as create a lift in the breasts may opt to combine the breast lift with a breast augmentation procedure. It is also important to note that breast lift procedure incisions are permanent–though we always try our best to hide incisions in areas that are naturally disguised such as the crease of the breasts. The breast lift can create a more perky and youthful appearance. If you are interested in learning more about the breast lift procedure, recovery process, and what kind of results are possible through this procedure, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation today.

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.

Breast Implants Norfolk

Breast Augmentation with breast implants are a consistently popular cosmetic procedure performed throughout the United States. Breast implants comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, textures, and may be placed above or behind the muscle. Implants are either silicone gel filled or saline solution filled and may be placed using one of a couple different incision placements. Each of these options offer pros and cons that may be best suited for different women–no two breast augmentation procedures are exactly alike, just like no two women are exactly alike. 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.

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. If you are interested in learning more about Botulinum Toxin treatment to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

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.

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. In some cases, the breast augmentation may also be performed as part of a mommy makeover to improve those areas of the body that are most impacted by pregnancy, birth and nursing. If you are interested in learning more about the breast augmentation procedure, and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
