At both facilities, every patient is monitored by a fully trained, physician anesthesiologist with extensive training in ambulatory plastic surgery. During procedures, there is continuous monitoring of blood pressure, tissue oxygen levels, heart rate, respiration and electrocardiogram. Dr. Simone has chosen a select group of highly experienced anesthesiologists who have demonstrated excellence in their field and who maintain the safest and most appropriate level of monitored anesthesia to assure patients of a smooth, effective and safe anesthetic experience.

It is generally done after the age of 45 to correct sagging of the facial and neck skin [including jowl formation, neck bands etc] as well as to reduction of lines and wrinkles. Eyelid surgery to reduce lower lid bags, excessive upper lid skin and improve crow's feet. Fat injections [using your own fat] to fill out creases and folds around mouth or to improve contour.

read more › Unfortunately, wrinkles and deep lines as well as puffiness [protruding fat] under the lids develop as you age which can radically change the facial expression and give a fixed look of fatigue, anger or sadness. Sun exposure as well as familial factors contribute to the aging process and can add years to someone's true age. Excess relaxation of the upper lids can cause eye fatigue and strain and rarely cause visual field impairment. Upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery are independent procedures but usually done together depending on the findings and what specific improvement the patient is seeking.

At times, this surgery may also correct impaired breathing caused by structural abnormalities in the nose. While the shape of your nose is usually the result of heredity, the appearance may have been altered in an injury or during prior surgery. Often enough, rhinoplasty is done in conjunction with chin enlargement/reshaping. Rhinoplasty surgery can change the size and width of the nose in relation to the other facial structures, modify the profile by correcting humps or depressions, define the nasal tip that is large, bulbous, or drooping, narrow widened nostrils and correct any asymmetry and deviation.

Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy for cancer. Breast augmentation can increase the fullness and projection of your breasts, improve the balance of your figure and enhance your self-image and self-confidence. Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts.

The procedure performed by Dr. Simone may reduce the chances of breast cancer by as much as 50%. A considerable portion of surgical costs are often met by insurance companies if the patient meets their criteria for surgery. Surgery is more often done to relieve and correct physical symptoms rather than for aesthetic reasons. The goal is to give a woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body, relief of symptoms and reduction of the chances of developing breast cancer, especially if there is a family history.

It is usually done for women whose breasts have changed over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness with sagging and loss of volume. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged as well and requires a size adjustment at the time of breast lifting. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is youthful and uplifted.

Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness. Liposuction surgery can be used to treat stubborn fat pockets in many parts of the body including the inner and outer thighs, knees, hips, waist, back, and chest; cheeks, chin, and neck; calves, and ankles; upper arms.

Dr. Simone may also recommend revitalizing creams to enhance the result for maximal effect.
