To have normal sized breasts and to be able to wear normal clothing without the use of padded bras is highly desirable for most women. Small breasts are usually either developmental or due to tissue loss and deflation following pregnancy and excessive weight loss. Augmentation Mammaplasty, more commonly known as Breast Augmentation, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size, shape or contour of a woman's breasts.

Most patients see vast improvement resulting in skin clarity, erasure of deep lines and acne scars, and tightened pores. Although this technique will not lift the underlying structure of the face, it has proven to be a very satisfying non-surgical alternative to traditional face lifts and more invasive skin treatments. Long term sun exposure, combined with the process of aging, deteriorates the basic structure of skin.

read more › Long-term sun exposure and age generally affect the face and neck skin in the form of wrinkling and sagging. The excessively loose skin of the face and neck is eliminated by a face and neck lift operation. The scars are hidden mostly in the temple and behind the ear, well within the hairline, with the lifting and pulling of the facial tissues done in two separate layers. The effects are longer lasting. In order to further improve the overall results, an exoderm lift peel is recommended at a later date.

The large, small, long or wide nose immediately attracts attention. People with unattractive noses are usually self-conscious and may even avoid being photographed. Nasal deformities are either congenital or traumatic in nature. Rhinoplasty (nose surgery), one of the most frequently performed operations in plastic surgery, is designed to modify the shape of the nose.

Aging causes sagging of the eyelid skin and stretching of internal tissues, which, in conjunction with the effect of gravity, produces the typical drooping of the upper lids and bulging bags in the lower lids. Overhanging upper eyelid skin and puffy lower lid bags make us look tired, aged and somewhat sad. Interestingly, lower eye bags are also seen in some families at a very young age giving them the "lack of sleep" appearance.

Piercings are performed so that jewelry and decorative items can be exhibited as part of self beautification and attractiveness. About 20 years ago single ear piercing became popular among men and is still considered the cool thing to do. Gauged earlobe stretching is the gradual expansion of a simple ear piercing in order to fit in larger and larger size plugs. The excessive stretching of earlobes by expanders known as gauges causes severe thinning and distortion of the earlobe tissues.

When patients consult with our Mommy Makeover surgeon, Dr. Ivan Thomas, he explains the two factors primarily responsible for the unwanted body changes stemming from pregnancy. The hormonal factor which begins its effect on the body soon after the pregnancy is consummated and is responsible for the development and growth of the baby in the uterus and the generalized weight gain which all women experience.

read more › Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a Tummy Tuck is a procedure, which removes extra skin and fat from the abdomen and tightens the over stretched muscles. Excessive laxity of the abdominal skin and muscles is generally due to multiple pregnancies or significant weight loss in overweight people. While exercising is effective in toning muscles in mild cases, it is not capable of reversing sagging skin nor is it capable of tightening loose abdominal muscles. Rolls of abdominal skin, which may extend down into the pubic area are called Panniculus or Pannus.

read more › Excessive fatty deposits are mainly due to weight gain. In genetically predisposed individuals, fat deposition can occur into unwanted areas of the body even when weight is not the problem. Fat deposition is also very hormone dependent. Women develop bulges in the hips, abdomen, inner and outer thighs and knees, while men complain of fullness in the flanks and waistline. Proper dieting and exercise can certainly help one to lose weight, unfortunately fatty deposits in certain areas such as the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs are very difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of.

read more › Brachioplasty better known as Arm Tuck or Arm Lift is an operation designed to remove excessive arm skin. Loose and hanging arm skin is an undesirable appearance for many individuals. The amount of excess skin is best noticed when the arms are held in horizontal position. Women in particular are very self-conscious and try to hide the deformity by wearing long sleeves. Although laxity of the arm skin is part of our aging process it is also seen in certain individuals at a younger age. Certainly, weight gain followed by weight loss is an important factor in a significant number of patients.
