Craig R. Dufresne, MD, FACS Dufresne is by far the most caring/professional Dr. I have ever know his work is unsurpassed, his knowledge as well I was so blessed to have found him on 20/20 during an documentary. I will be coming back for a visit soon. Thanks for everything you do. I love Dr. Dufresne! He takes his time with his patients, and if he doesnt feel like you will get a great result, he will recommend another option for you.

I highly recommend seeing him, you will not be disappointed. I absolutely loved my doctor. At first I wanted to have both upper and lower eyelid surgery but he convinced me not to have the upper eyelid surgery just yet. He is not only an excellent plastic surgeon, he's also an amazing reconstructive surgeon. Dufresne and his staff are so caring and charismatic; I have never felt more comfortable in a doctors office.

Dr. Dufresne gives you his undivided attention during the consultation. He answers all of your questions no matter how silly they may be and gives you an honest answer. I believe that the patient/physician relationship is unique.

Facelifts counteract these problems by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, youthful look. After surgery, some patients appear 10-15 years younger. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places, behind the hairline and in natural folds of the face and ears, and scars fade to near invisibility in time.

read more › The neck lift is usually part of the facelift. Cervicoplasty is the procedure used to remove excess skin that is sagging on the neck. Platysmaplasty is a procedure that removes or alters the neck muscles. Typically, a neck lift will last two to three hours under general anesthesia; if you are having a neck lift in conjunction with other surgeries, the time will vary accordingly. Your exact procedure will depend on your desired results and your own personal circumstances. In order to undergo a neck lift, you must be in good general physical and mental health.

read more › Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands. There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the face and is less noticeable).

read more › Otoplasty is done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is usually performed on children between the ages of four and fourteen. However, adults may have this procedure as well and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient. Otoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure in a hospital or a doctor's office-based surgical facility. If your child is young, your surgeon may recommend general anesthesia, so the child will sleep through the operation.

read more › Also know as mastopexy, a breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted. Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller or smaller, you may want to consider either breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.

read more › Large breasts may cause physical and mental discomfort and can even harm the women who have them - the size and weight of large breasts can result in self-consciousness, improper posture, pain in the back and neck, indentations from bra straps, skin rashes, breathing problems and skeletal deformities. Breast reduction surgery is usually done to provide physical relief from these symptoms, not for cosmetic reasons. Performed under general anesthesia, the two- to four-hour procedure removes fat and glandular tissue and trims resultant excess skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are in a healthier proportion to the rest of the body.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you. Incision length and pattern depend on the amount and location of excess skin to be removed. Incisions are generally placed on the inside of the arm of on the back of the arm, and may extend from the underarm (axilla) to just above the elbow.
