These procedures are typically performed in the surgery center by Dr. Patrick Swier. Most frequently, the procedures used for Body Sculpting are a combination of liposuction in various places along with excisions of skin that is not expected to contract back. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and when fat is removed, the skin is often left "wrinkly". Since excess and wrinkly skin is not attractive, it usually ends up being removed or excised.

Poor healing and genetics may contribute to scars that are raised or recessed or different in color and texture resulting in scars that are particularly noticeable due to size, shape and location. Scar revision surgery is used when a patient wishes to minimize an old scar so that it is more consistent with the surrounding skin tone and texture. Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic appearance or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.

The excision and reconstruction of skin cancer and the resulting skin defects on the face requires a special skill. As a plastic surgeon, do you not only have to make sure the cancer has been completely removed, the reconstruction should cause the least amount of scarring and deformity. Plastic surgeons are specially trained in facial surgery including the reconstruction of these defects using flaps or skin grafts and know how best to hide the scars.

However, some preparations are the same. In general your procedure will result in less bleeding, if blood thinners are stopped a week prior to surgery. Blood thinners are the medication patients take after having a stent placed or when they have Afib (atrium fibrillation) or a history of clot formation like thrombosis in the leg or a PE (pulmonary embolus).
