The results are best for those patients who are closer to ideal body weight. If these circumstances apply to you and you are considering this procedure, please contact Bowers Plastic Surgery by calling 336-907-7980 or Contact Us. His staff will be happy to arrange a private consultation for you with Dr. Bowers. Abdominoplasty is indicated for the removal of excess skin of the lower abdomen.

As the skin relaxes, the natural fold of the upper eyelid can become more apparent due to excessive skin, while wrinkled, redundant skin of the lower eyelid may reveal protrusions of fat. A deep crease known as a "tear trough" can form at the junction of the lower eyelid and the cheek that exacerbates the aged look. A blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess skin and fat pockets, or repositioning of the fat pockets to correct the tear trough deformity.

It is the removal of extra skin in the lower part of the breast and transfer of the nipple upward that achieves the lift. The nipple is not detached but repositioned where it belongs after the removal of excess skin surrounding it. The incisions are designed with every effort to keep the scars as unnoticeable as possible. In simplest terms, a breast lift removes extra skin, elevates the nipple, and encloses the same amount of breast tissue in a tighter, more shapely skin envelope.

The goal of these procedures is restoration of body contour, promotion of a healthy body image, and the provision of the positive psychological benefits that have been demonstrated in breast reconstruction patients. While an exact restoration of the missing breast is not possible, the restoration of a pleasing degree of symmetry is a realistic goal that enables the breast cancer patient to take an additional positive step in her recovery process.

read more › Breast reduction is a procedure designed to reduce the size of the breasts. This goal is accomplished by reducing the excess soft tissue of the breast, which is a combination of dense fibrous tissue and fat, and the skin envelope that covers it. Repositioning of the nipple in a more elevated, pleasing position is an important part of this surgery. This is a very popular procedure because it reduces breast size, improves breast shape, and lifts the breast into a more favorable position. Dr. Bowers finds this procedure to be particularly rewarding because it provides marked improvement in the appearance of the breast and the real possibility of symptomatic relief from back, shoulder, and neck pain.

read more › A facelift is a cosmetic procedure designed to transfer the skin and deeper soft tissues of the face and neck into a more elevated, youthful position. This goal is accomplished by gaining broad access to the undersurface of the skin of the face and neck from incisions that are strategically placed to remove the excess skin and hide the scars in locations that are generally well concealed. The skin is freed from underlying attachments in the cheek area, the jaw-line and the neck so that it can be lifted and repositioned in a manner that restores a firm, more youthful, refreshed look.

read more › Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes excess fatty tissue. The reduction in fat occurs in specific target areas in order to improve body shape. It is not a weight loss procedure. The removal of fat is performed using a blunt-tipped rigid tube (cannula). The suction cannula has a small diameter designed to move through the fatty tissue safely and efficiently as it aspirates the excess fat. Liposuction does not remove skin. Instead, it relies upon the skin to reposition once the extra fatty tissue has been removed.

read more › A mini-facelift is a popular, limited version of a standard facelift. The incisions are placed below sideburn and in the crease around the ear and are generally well concealed. These incisions permit the surgeon to mobilize the loose skin in the cheek, jaw line, and upper neck, remove the excess skin from these areas, and lift the remaining skin upward and backward to achieve a more youthful appearance. The best candidates for a mini-facelift are in good physical and psychological health, have realistic expectations, are non-smokers, and are primarily interested in improvement of the cheek, jaw line, and upper neck.

read more › Whether used as an adjunct to surgical procedures or as a conservative option for facial rejuvenation, non-surgical treatments for facial concerns are popular and effective. As opposed to cosmetic surgical procedures that excise excess skin and wrinkles, non-surgical treatments refine, modify, and enhance the skin rather than remove it. Botox has a number of medical applications such as treatment of abnormalities of eye muscles, migraine headaches, muscle tightness, and excessive sweating. It can also be used to treat facial wrinkles, especially in the upper half of the face where wrinkles are caused by the activity of facial muscles.
