Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Brachioplasty, commonly known as an arm lift, attempts to procure a more natural and youthful look by removing the fat and excess skin hanging down from the underarms. This is most commonly requested by aging women, but some men opt to have this procedure as well. An arm lift is often performed on post-bariatric surgery patients who have lost huge amounts of weight in a short amount of time. The procedure helps to relieve patients’ self consciousness in wearing short sleeves or otherwise showing their arms.

Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)
Breast augmentation enhances the sizes of small or unevenly-sized breasts for a fuller, more proportionate appearance through the use of saline or silicone filled implants. As one of the most popular surgical procedures available, breast augmentation can be performed for medical and aesthetic motivations, and is often successful in helping women look and feel their best.
The many choices associated with a breast augmentation, including the size, shape, texture and placement of the implant, can be discussed with your surgeon during a pre-surgical consultation.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A woman's breasts may droop as a result of the natural effects of aging, heredity, gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Breast lifts rejuvenate sagging breasts by trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissues to achieve an uplifted, youthful contour.
After a mastopexy, the breasts are higher on the chest and firmer to the touch. Breast lifts can also reposition and reduce the size of the areola—the dark skin surrounding the nipple—which may have stretched or drooped.

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)
Large breasts can negatively impact a woman both physically and emotionally, causing symptoms such as chronic back pain, rashes, poor posture, low self-esteem and restricted activity. Many women seek treatment to reduce the painful effects of their large breasts, while also improving their self-confidence and overall quality of life. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery reduces the size of large, disproportionate breasts by removing excess fat, tissue and skin for a more desirable appearance and relief of physical and emotional symptoms.

Many women suffer from enlarged labia minora (the inner genital lips). Some may not like the appearance of their large, uneven or thick labia, which can sometimes extend beyond the labia majora. Others may be bothered by labial irritation while conducting normal activities, or may find it difficult to keep the labial area clean. Still others may experience pain during sexual intercourse, sports or other vigorous activities.
Large, thick or uneven labia can be an embarrassing condition to discuss with a doctor or gynecologist, but there is a procedure available to help. Labiaplasty reduces large labia or reshapes uneven labia, improving their appearance and reducing associated discomfort.

Liposuction (Lipoplasty/Suction Lipectomy)
Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body through a small thin tube called a cannula. The fat from the targeted area is suctioned from the body through this tube to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance.
While the conventional liposuction procedure was effective in removing excessive fat deposits, it was a painful procedure that involved suctioning out large areas of solid fat. Today, liposuction is usually performed via the tumescent technique or with the help of ultrasound imaging or a laser. These new technologies have transformed liposuction into a much safer and less invasive procedure.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia is a common condition that affects nearly half of all men, resulting in localized fat and/or glandular tissue in the breasts. For most cases of gynecomastia, the cause is unknown, but this condition may be linked to certain medications or diseases. Many men are embarrassed by this condition and seek treatment to achieve a smooth, contoured chest through male breast reduction.
Male breast reduction may be performed using liposuction, surgery or a combination of the two, depending on the amount and type of tissue found in the breasts. This procedure is ideal for any man uncomfortable with his large breast size, provided he is in good overall health and maintains realistic expectations.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
An abdominoplasty (stomach lift or tummy tuck) tightens the abdominal walls and removes excess skin to create a flatter contour of the abdomen. This procedure is commonly performed on women whose skin has stretched from pregnancy, or from patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and now have loose, hanging skin in the abdominal area.
The abdominoplasty procedure is performed under local or general anesthesia and takes two to five hours, depending on how much fat and skin is removed. Although a scar is left across the lower abdomen, most patients are able to benefit from a slimmer body contour that can last for many years to come.

CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses patented cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This clinically proven technique is designed to selectively reduce the fat in problem areas that has proven resistant to reduction through diet and exercise. CoolSculpting gently cools targeted cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of these unwanted fat cells.
CoolSculpting is the first and only nonsurgical procedure to selectively reduce fat layers in problem areas that include muffin tops, love handles and back fat. Developed in 2005 and backed by strong clinical research, CoolSculpting is based on Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis)-the use of precisely controlled cooling to remove fat.
Based on the scientific principle that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the overlying skin and surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting reduces the temperature of fat cells in the treated area. This is intended to promote fat cell elimination through a natural biological process known as apoptosis, without causing scar tissue or damage to the skin, nerves or surrounding tissues.
Patients generally start to see results as soon as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results occurring over a period of two to four months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to six months after treatment.
