Liposuction is performed to sculpt the body for more desirable contours while removing excess fat. Our expert liposuction surgeons can remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms and under the chin. We only utilize liposuction techniques proven safe and effective including tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction. It is important to note that liposuction surgery is not a means of weight loss, rather it is a method to remove stubborn fat to create a more perfectly contoured body – often accompanying a tummy tuck or body lift surgery.
Breast augmentation utilizes FDA approved silicone or saline breast implants to enhance the shape and size of the breasts. Breast Augmentation is performed by placing breast implants under the muscle through a small incision made through the areola, through the armpit, under the fold of the breast or through the belly button. Utilizing the most advanced techniques, our breast augmentation surgeons are experts in the field, creating natural looking and feeling breasts. Breast augmentation (also known popularly as a "boob job") is sometimes performed alongside a breast lift to achieve the best results.
Abdominoplasty or a “tummy tuck” is performed to remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal wall for a flatter stomach with more definition. The tummy tuck is ideal for women who have stretched muscles and skin after pregnancy or for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight. It is also a great option for women who suffer from a genetic predisposition towards loose skin. Our tummy tuck surgeons are experts in abdominoplasty, specializing in advanced techniques for natural looking belly buttons, defined contours and minimal scarring. To provide the best possible result, our surgeons also perform liposuction. Tummy tuck surgery is a permanent procedure, however it is recommended to wait until you are finishing having children or losing weight because significant fluctuations in weight may require additional surgery.
Rhinoplasty (also referred to as a nose job) can improve the structure and appearance of the nose for a more proportionate & balanced appearance. A rhinoplasty can modify the general outline of the tip or of the bridge, slim down the range of the nostrils, or alter the angle between your nose and your upper lip. Rhinoplasty is an art. Our Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Inland Empire and Orange County rhinoplasty surgeons are experts in sculpting the nose for results that appear natural –and specialize in Asian rhinoplasty, Persian rhinoplasty, Caucasian rhinoplasty and African American rhinoplasty.
Pregnancy, nursing, and the general force of gravity as time progresses can have a significant effect on a woman's breasts, making them sag and forcing the areolas to become larger. Many women choose to have a breast lift to counteract this. Basically, a breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and reshapes the breasts. Unlike a breast augmentation, which involves inserting an implant into the breasts, a breast lift achieves its new heights by getting rid of and tightening excess skin. This will not adjust the size of your breasts, but it will make them look perkier and more youthful. It must be noted that a breast lift cannot permanently situate your breasts at a higher position, but it can postpone the effects of gravity and time.
Buttock augmentation through the use of buttock implants is a plastic surgery procedure used to enhance the size and volume of the buttocks. FDA approved silicone butt implants mimic the texture of a finely toned buttock muscle, allowing for a natural looking results. Buttock implants are ideal for patients looking to create more buttock volume and are not candidates for a Brazilian butt lift because they do not have enough donor fat. Buttock augmentation is an increasingly more popular procedure amongst men and women in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside & Orange Counties.
A Brazilian Butt Lift, also know as a Brazilian Butt Fill, is the most common procedure for buttock augmentation. Through gentle liposuction, excess fat is removed from a donor site such as the abdomen, hips or thighs and is strategically injected into the layers of the buttocks using a precise method to ensure natural looking results. The Brazilian Butt Lift is the often the preferred method for buttock augmentation by plastic surgeons because the technique utilizes the patient’s own fat and has a significantly reduced complication rate as compared to butt implants.
A face lift, or rhytidectomy, can "turn back time" by adjusting the fat, muscle and skin on your face to create a smoother and more youthful appearance. For best results face lift surgery is often performed alongside eyelid surgery or a neck lift. Because the face is a strong indicator of a person's age, many men and women consider visiting a face lift surgeon to remove wrinkles around the eyes, nose, and mouth, as well as improve the appearance of sagging skin around the chin and neck to improve self confidence or gain an advantage in the workplace. Although it is recommended to maintain a daily skin care regimen and seek non-surgical face lift treatments to prolong the time before undergoing a face lift, surgery is the only way to tighten deep tissues and remove excess skin.
One of the first indicators of aging can be seen in the eyes. As you age, your eyelids begin to droop, making you appear tired and older than you probably are. If it progresses far enough, drooping eyelids can even impair your vision. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that can counteract this, as well as repair unsatisfying eye traits you may have inherited. It is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures because blepharoplasty produces significant results with minimal downtime. Because results are so natural and scars are hidden and very discrete, patients often enjoy compliments without mentioning they’ve had cosmetic surgery.
