  1. Remove excess fat and skin — As much loose skin and fat from the belly button to the pubic area is removed and replaced with the skin from above the belly button

Contouring the waist with liposuction and using injectable numbing agents to minimize pain, are just some of the ways we strive to improve your experience and results.

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a brow lift:

  • The outside of your brow sags, resulting in a sad expression.
  • The central portion of your brow hangs down, making you look angry
  • You have frown lines between your eyes.
  • If you are a female and you are unable to apply makeup on the upper eyelid, because the surface area has been obscured by drooping tissues as you have aged.
  • If you gently lift the skin above your eyebrow into a pleasing position and it eliminates most of the excess skin in your upper eyelid, a brow lift may be right for you.
  • Rely on an evaluation from a board-certified plastic surgeon to find out if you would benefit from a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or both procedures. If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for brow lift and eyelid surgery procedures.

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider rhinoplasty:

  • Your nose is too large or too small
  • Your nose does not seem to fit with the rest of your face
  • Your nose is crooked, badly shaped, or out of alignment
  • You have nasal blockage inside your nose and have trouble breathing
  • You have a birth defect that you would like improved
  • You would like improvement, not perfection, in the appearance of your nose

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

  1. Tumescent Liposuction
    This is the most common type of suction performed. Fluid is injected into the fat to minimize bleeding, then the fat is removed with suction cannulas.
  2. VASER Liposuction (Ultrasonic)
    Ultrasonic heat breaks down the fat and also can provide skin tightening when needed. New and advanced liposuction method.
  3. Laser Liposuction (Smart Lipo)
    Removes fat and provides heat through a laser. Same results as VASER and ultrasonic liposuction.

Our Vision for Liposuction

Our goal is to provide superior results while not compromising on patient safety, comfort and experience. While we cannot guarantee that every patient will have the perfect experience, we strive to make that happen. Body contouring with liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to improve with dieting and exercise. The most important decision is choosing the surgeon. This determines your results more than the type of liposuction.

Submuscular

Submuscular (below the muscle) Breast Augmentation

In 95% of the cases, the breast implants will be placed in a submuscular position for two main reasons:

  • More natural appearance
  • Less risk of capsular contracture (scarring around the breast implant)


Dual Plane

Dual Plane Breast Augmentation

This occurs when the implant is placed behind the muscle in the top 2/3 of the implant and behind the gland in the lower 1/3 of the implant. This is performed by surgeons who have experience in this technique in those patients who do not wants the scars from a breast lift but still want implants and they have some mild sagging to the breasts. The dual place creates a lifting and rotation of the breast tissue.


Subglandular

Subglandular (above the muscle) Breast Augmentation

This is performed infrequently due to the higher risk of capsular contracture. There are some patients who do benefit from this type of placement:

  • Constricted or tubular breasts (better expansion with this technique)
  • Sagging of the breasts but not interested in a lift
  • These patients can have too much sagging
  • They need to have thicker breast tissue to cover the implant

Inframammary Fold Incision

This is the most common incision for breast augmentation because the scar is essentially hidden underneath the breast near the crease. You do not see it when looking in the mirror and it is hidden underneath all clothes, bras and bikinis. Great access and results from this incisions.

Infraareolar incision

Hidden along the color change and curve of the lower areola. Can be a very discreet scar in some patients. If it doesn’t heal well, then can be visible in a mirror. Slightly higher risk of infection and capsular contracture since dissecting near the breast ducts.

Umbilical Incision

Well hidden along the curve of the upper belly button. Also called the Scarless Breast Augmentation since there are no breast incisions. Can only be performed with saline implants.

Axillary Incision

Potentially the most visible incision if it doesn’t heal well since can be seen with tank tops.

  1. Fat Grafting (Brazilian Butt Lift) — This is the most common type of augmentation. Fat can be removed from almost anywhere such as the abdomen, thighs, waist, and back and reinjected into the buttocks.

Our Vision for Buttock Augmentation

Our goal is to provide superior results while not compromising on patient safety, comfort and experience. While we cannot guarantee that every patient will have the perfect experience, we strive to make that happen. Our technique for narrowing the waistline with significantly enhance your buttock contour along with the fat grafting.

Yes.

Breast Implant Malposition Correction: Breast implants can fall underneath the inframmamary fold (bottoming out) or fall to the side when lying down (lateral displacement). This usually can be corrected with tightening the pocket so that the implant cannot fall down or out. Sometimes extra material (such as Alloderm, Strattice, or other Acellular dermal Matrices) is needed to provide additional support especially in thin patients.

This patient had a breast augmentation by a different surgeon and was unhappy with the bottoming out and lack of cleavage. Dr. Ewart corrected the problem by placing a wider implant that better fit the patients frame, re-elevating the pectoralis muscle, and tightening the lower pocket. The patient was extremely happy with the results.

 

You must discontinue retinol and exfoliator use for one week before and one week after treatment.

This is the most common question we receive and also the most important decision to address during your consultation. Let’s make it simple by looking at the flow chart below.
