Facelift
 
 

Aging of the face is inevitable, and with time the skin of the face and neck loosen. Age, sun exposure, gravity, and genetics all contribute to skin changes. Fine lines become wrinkles, and gradually deeper folds. The jaw line softens into jowls, and beneath the chin excess skin starts to sag. Facelift surgery can help reverse the harmful effects of time, stress, and the elements.

A facelift restores a refreshed, youthful contour to loose skin and softens wrinkles without looking tight or unnatural. Sometimes an eyelid lift or brow lift is a complementary procedure that can create total facial rejuvenation. Patients who understand both the possibilities of a face lift and its limitations tend to be more pleased with their results.

Rhinoplasty
 
 

Rhinoplasty or surgery to reshape the nose is one of the most common of all plastic surgery procedures.
It is used to reduce or (far less often) increase the size of the nose, change its shape, remove a bump, correct a deviated septum, narrow the span of the nostrils, change the angle between the nose and the lip, or correct a birth defect or injury. It can be performed on persons of any age (though the minimum is usually 14 or 15, when the growth spurt is concluded).

This surgery can restore balance and harmony to the face and boost self-confidence. . The main goal is to create a nose that subtly blends into the overall features of the face and proper proportions rather than to create a new nose that draws attention to itself.

Laser Resurfacing
 
 

If you have ever wished you could turn back the clock, reverse your sun damage; smooth out your skin tone, correct uneven pigmentation, then laser resurfacing may be an option for you.  Dr. Young has been utilizing laser skin resurfacing treatments for nearly two decades.  The advances in the technology in this field are constantly improving.  CO2 lasers have been the gold-standard for resurfacing treatments for twenty years.  This is because they are able to remove the outer layers of skin while heating the underlying tissues. 

This stimulates the production of new collagen which improves the tone and texture of your skin over time.  The Ellipse Juvia offers the latest in fractional resurfacing technology for skin rejuvenation, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improvement in skin texture, redness, pigmentation and acne scarring.  Juvia harnesses the proven power of traditional CO2 lasers in a more gentle way, minimizing the recovery process and speeding up the healing process.  This is an excellent option for a busy lifestyle that wants noticeable results with minimal downtime. Often one treatment is enough, but this really depends on the level of sun-damage to your skin and your personal treatment goals.

Many women choose to have their breasts enlarged in order to satisfy their own desire for a fuller bust line. Breast enlargement, or augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast to complement one’s natural body proportions.Women can choose between saline or silicone gel filled implants.

The decision to have a breast enlargement should be a personal one. It can be used to balance a difference in breast size, improve body contour and proportions, regain firmness and fullness after having children or simply feel more confident about one’s appearance. Your body type, chest size and density of breast tissue will determine the implant size and shape.

Liposuction
 
 

Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough. Liposuction can put an end to unsightly bulges and stubborn fatty deposits. It can improve body shape and contour specific areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. Target areas include the neck, chin, upper arm, abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, knees, calves, and ankles. It can also be used as a treatment for gynecomastia (large male breasts). The ideal patient is one who practices a healthy lifestyle, near ideal weight, eats well-balanced meals and has realistic expectations for results.

Tumescent
 
 

Tumescent liposuction involves the use of a diluted solution of local anesthetic and other medications to fill the fatty layer of the skin prior to removing excess fat. The procedure involves infiltrating the problem area with a fluid that functions to numb the area and loosen the fat. The fat is then drawn out by the use of a small suction cannula. This method allows for less direct trauma, with minimal blood loss, and a smoother, more attractive contour. The procedure may be tolerated easily with oral medication for relaxation. In some cases, intravenous sedation is used. For cost containment and convenience, liposuction is done on an outpatient basis in our office operating suite.

Smart Lipo
 
 

SmartLipo is a minimally invasive fat removal procedure which uses the focused power of laser energy to break up and dissolve fatty tissue trapped beneath the skin. By directing the energy to the area beneath the surface of the skin, the technique also encourages the development of collagen, which results in a tighter, more toned appearance overall. Laser -assisted lipolysis usually requires only local anesthesia. This procedure is ideal for treating localized fatty deposits on the face and body.

Tummy Tuck
 
 

An abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure which removes excess wrinkled skin and fatty tissue from the upper, middle and lower abdomen, as well as tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. This results in a firmer and flatter abdominal area and, in most cases, a narrower waist line. Loss of skin elasticity, which can occur with repeated weight loss, or in older adult who is slightly overweight, can be improved with abdominoplasty. The surgery is especially helpful to women who through multiple pregnancies have stretched their abdominal skin and muscles beyond the point where they can return to normal. A mini-abdominoplasty can be performed on patients with only localized fullness of the lower abdomen, typically resulting in decreased scarring and shorter surgery and recovery times.

Body Contouring Implants
 
 

Chest Implants (Pectoral Augmentation)-Pectoral implants may be useful when this muscle is not developed to the patient's satisfaction. They may also be used to reconstruct congenital or acquired defects.

Gluteal Implants (Buttock Augmentation)-Buttock implants have become more popular recently. The gluteal region can be augmented with fat grafts, "Brazilian butt lift" or with silicone implants. A consultation with the surgeon will help you decide what is best for you.

Lower leg implants (Calf Augmentation)-Calf implants are often used when the patient is not satisfied with the shape or size of their lower legs. The implants can also be used for asymmetries caused by congenital or acquired conditions.
