Breast Augmentation

Women who are done having children and are worried about having breast deflation, ptosis (excessive sagging or loose skin), along with displacement of the nipples below their optimal location, most frequently have a mastopexy. If the candidate is the appropriate fit and has reasonable expectations for the outcome, this process is quite fulfilling. The anchor-shaped scar is some women’s top worry (a scar around the areola, a vertical scar from the areola down, and a horizontal scar in the crease under the breast). These three scars are the consequence of surgical procedures intended to change the breast in an effort to return it to its former shape. A deflated, ptotic breast has extra skin in both the vertical and horizontal directions since a breast is a three-dimensional surface. The scar around the areola is caused by the surgical raising of the nipple-areola to a new, higher location on the breast, which requires the creation of a new skin opening for the nipple-areola. The scar running vertically from the areola down is caused by excising the excess skin in one dimension; the horizontal scar concealed in the crease under the breast is caused by excising the excess skin in the other dimension. The contour of the breasts is significantly improved in a patient who accepts this scar.

Breast Lift Surgery

Women who are done having children and are worried about having breast deflation, ptosis (excessive sagging or loose skin), along with displacement of the nipples below their optimal location, most frequently have a mastopexy. If the candidate is the appropriate fit and has reasonable expectations for the outcome, this process is quite fulfilling. The anchor-shaped scar is some women’s top worry (a scar around the areola, a vertical scar from the areola down, and a horizontal scar in the crease under the breast). These three scars are the consequence of surgical procedures intended to change the breast in an effort to return it to its former shape. A deflated, ptotic breast has extra skin in both the vertical and horizontal directions since a breast is a three-dimensional surface. The scar around the areola is caused by the surgical raising of the nipple-areola to a new, higher location on the breast, which requires the creation of a new skin opening for the nipple-areola. The scar running vertically from the areola down is caused by excising the excess skin in one dimension; the horizontal scar concealed in the crease under the breast is caused by excising the excess skin in the other dimension. The contour of the breasts is significantly improved in a patient who accepts this scar.

Liposuction

Liposuction, also known as suction-assisted lipectomy, is frequently misunderstood to be a method of losing weight. In reality, surgical procedures like breast reduction, abdominoplasty, mastopexy, mommy makeover, arm lift, thigh lift, or buttock lift are sometimes combined with liposuction as a “touch-up” surgery. In the right applicant, liposuction occasionally works well as a stand-alone operation. Before deciding which operation is best for you, Dr. Cohen will thoroughly consider your goals, medical history, and anatomy. Tumescent power-assisted liposuction, one of the many liposuction techniques that have proven to be safe and effective over time, is the procedure that our experience physician prefers to use for treatments.

Tummy Tuck

The desire to restore an attractive abdominal wall contour is the main justification for getting a tummy tuck. A woman who has finished having children may frequently wish to make her body look as it did before she became a mother in order to make her looks fit how she is feeling. The loose lower abdomen skin may also be difficult for someone who has lost a lot of weight to lose through diet and exercise. Additionally, it is impossible to undo the separation of the abdominal muscles (commonly known as “abs”) that frequently occurs during pregnancy with just exercise. A tummy tuck primarily seeks to address those two anatomical problems. The loose skin is removed, the abdominal muscles are repaired to restore the abdominal contour, and a new belly button is created through a new skin opening in the new abdomen. The end outcome is the restoration of a lower abdomen and anterior abdominal profile that look more normal. In order to decide the combination of operations that is most appropriate for you, Dr. Cohen will do a complete review of your medical and surgical history, as well as an analysis of your goals and desires. He will also evaluate your anatomy. Top care offered. Our staff and surgeons will offer information, diagnosis, advice during the consultation process at our plastic surgery practice.
