Breast Surgery Washington DC
• Breast Augmentation Washington DC
Washington DC Breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, or augmentation mammoplaty, is a surgical enhancement procedure to accentuate the size and shape of a woman's breasts. Breast augmentation in Washington DC, helps patients who desire a fuller profile, who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing, or who have undergone breast reconstruction and want to gain a more natural look again.
• Breast Reduction Washington DC
Washington DC Breast reduction (or reduction mammaplasty) is an enhancement procedure that reshapes the breasts in order to make them smaller, lighter, and firmer. Breast Reduction is accomplished by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. Large breasts can cause physical pain as well as emotional and social anxiety. Women who take advantage of the breast reduction procedure in Washington DC find that they are able to lead a healthier, more comfortable life, in addition to enjoying a beautiful, more proportionate appearance.
• Breast Lift Washington DC, Washington DC
Washington DC breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As a woman ages, skin loses some elasticity which can cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness. The Breast Lift procedure is designed to elevate the breasts and give them a more youthful appearance. A breast lift in Washington DC may also be completed in conjunction with breast enlargement surgery (augmentation).

Body Contouring Washington DC
• Liposuction/Liposculpture Washington DC
Washington DC Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or liposculpture, is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat deposits that are unresponsive to dieting and exercising. This cosmetic surgery procedure can be applied to many different areas of the body. Liposuction in Washington DC results in a slimmer and better proportioned figure. In the abdomen, liposuction can be used alone to decrease flank fullness ("love-handles"), and decrease the thickness of the abdominal wall. Sometimes, it is used in conjunction with an abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, to provide the patient with the best possible results. This mainly depends on the amount of excess skin and the quality of the skin in the abdomen, which will be evaluated during your initial consultation. In the lower extremity, Washington DC liposuction is often done to the outer thighs ("saddlebags"), to the inner thighs, to the buttock, and to the knee regions.
In the arms, Washington DC liposuction is done commonly in the upper arm. Depending on the amount of skin laxity and skin tightness, this can sometimes be combined with a brachyplasty, or arm lift, for best results. In the face, liposuction is used in decreasing the "double-chin" appearance.
• Tummy Tuck Washington DC
Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to take care of waistline problems. In such cases, a patient may wish to consider a tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty). A Washington DC tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess skin or fatty deposits from the abdomen, along with the repositioning of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation. This cosmetic surgery procedure in Washington DC is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach. It is also helpful in remedying the vertical separation of abdomen muscles known as diastasis, which can occur following pregnancy.
• Body Lift Washington DC
A Washington DC body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a cosmetic procedure to raise and reshape unsightly, sagging body contours. During the aging process, skin loses some elasticity, causing the mid-section to lose its natural shape and firmness. This Washington DC plastic surgery procedure is designed to remove loose skin and related fat deposits, thus, providing a more youthful appearance. A Washington DC body lift can be applied to the lower torso and upper legs including the abdomen, waist, inner/outer thighs, buttocks, and/or hips. Liposuction may also be completed in conjunction with a body lift.
• Buttock Lift Washington DC
Washington DC Buttock lifts are cosmetic surgeries performed to lift the sagging tissues of the gluteal area to a more naturally pleasing location. There are basically two types of operations that share this name, despite the fact that they are very different surgeries that are performed on different types of patients.
1) Buttock or Outer Thigh lifts with incisions: These Cosmetic Plastic Surgeries in Washington DC are typically performed after massive weight after massive weight loss. Frequently, they are performed in combination with an abdominoplasty resulting in a more circumferential lift to the sagging tissues of the body. This type of surgery involves incisions all along the lifted areas. We perform this type of buttock lift or circumferential body contouring in the Washington D.C. area hospitals. An overnight stay is often advisable.
2) "Brazilian Buttock Lift": This Washington DC cosmetic surgery is not a lift per say, but a redistribution of your existing fat contour to create the illusion of the lift and higher buttocks. The surgery is an example of liposculpture in Washington DC, where the techniques of suctioning fat and reinjecting fat are applied to the buttock region with the goals of enhancing the upper part of the butt by suctioning out fat from the back and from the lower part of the butt and performing fat transfer to the area to be enhanced. We perform this buttock lift in an outpatient surgical facility serving the Washington D.C. metropolitan area.
• Laser Skin Resurfacing Washington DC
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses lasers to create a new, smooth skin appearance. The laser “ablates”, or destroys, the outer layers of skin which have been damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems or spots. The destruction of the older layers of skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells which are unaffected by the previous skin condition. Some lasers may be inappropriate for darker skin complexions.

Cosmetic Treatments Washington DC
• Ear Surgery Washington DC
Washington DC Surgery of the ear, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that helps reduce protrusion of the ear away from the head. Most often, Washington DC ear surgery is performed on children between the ages of four to fourteen. Ears that “stick out” are often the source of teasing and ridicule in young children. This teasing can have a devastating effect on the child’s psyche.
Otoplasty in Washington DC is not limited to children and may also be performed on older patients. Cosmetic procedures are available for those individuals with large ears and for those with congenital (birth) irregularities that detract from their appearance. Additionally, an individual’s ears may exhibit abnormal traits due to their genetic make-up or an accidental injury, such as losing an ear or part of an ear. Washington DC Otoplasty is used successfully for each of these situations. Regardless of the procedure, patients have been pleased with the long-lasting improvements to their appearance offered by ear surgery.
• Eyelid Surgery Washington DC
Washington DC Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) is a corrective procedure that can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. One of the first things noticed about a person is their eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. The blepharoplasty surgery in Washington DC, is often performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a face lift or rhinoplasty (nose surgery).
• Facelift Washington DC
A Washington DC Facelift (Rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and firm the skin, providing a fresh, youthful appearance. Throughout one’s life, the sun’s radiation, stress, gravity, and other factors cause the skin to sag and fit more loosely. Areas of the face and neck, in particular around the jaw line, are especially prone to the aging process. Though these changes are gradual, wrinkles and other signs of aging can make individuals “feel older” than they really are. Washington DC Cosmetic Surgery for a facelift involves the contraction and realignment of facial and neck skin, and in some instances the removal of excess fat deposits. A facelift in Washington DC, is often performed in combination with other facial cosmetic procedures and can be performed any time signs of aging begin to appear. However, Washington DC patients are generally in their forties or older when they elect to undergo this procedure.
• Nose Surgery Washington DC
Washington DC Nose surgery (Rhinoplasty) is a procedure to reshape the nose in order to create a more pleasing look and, in some instances, to correct severe breathing problems. With approximately 400,000 operations performed each year, rhinoplasty is considered the most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. Washington DC Rhinoplasty usually involves reducing the size of the nose by removing and sculpting the nasal tissues in order to enhance the facial appearance. The results are unique to each individual, and depend upon such factors as skin condition and thickness, nasal and facial structure, genetic contributions, and age. Traditionally, a “nose job” was performed only to correct major problems. However, recent surgical innovations allow for individuals to benefit from more moderate improvements from the Washington DC Rhinoplasty as well. In general, having nose surgery provides the patient with a better facial balance and overall appearance.
• Chin and Cheek Implants Washington DC
High cheekbones and a strong jaw line have long had a history of allure. Along with the eyes, the cheekbones and jaw line form the most photogenic aspects of the face. Chin and cheek implants in Washington DC, are a great way to enhance a facial profile by improving the overall proportion and balance of the face. With Washington DC chin implants (mentoplasty), the symmetry of the face can be shaped and contoured. Washington DC Cheek implants (malarplasty), also known as malar (high cheek) or submalar (low cheek) augmentation, can add fullness and definition to the face. Utilizing permanent chin and cheek implants can provide a rejuvenated, youthful facial profile.
• Chemical Peels Washington DC Washington DC
A chemical peel is an aesthetic procedure performed to achieve better skin tone and to remove fine lines, especially on the face. The chemical solution removes outer layers of skin which are damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems. Removing the outer skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells which are tainted by the previous skin condition. Washington DC Chemical peels may not be appropriate for darker skin complexions.
• Botox Treatments In Washington DC
Botox® is a relatively new procedure using Botulinum Toxin which was developed to treat the visual signs of aging by reducing or removing wrinkles. The procedure is considered a safe, effective way of treating aging skin. Common areas for Botox® injections include horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and "crow's feet" around the eyes. Botox® has proven to be the best non-surgical form of facial rejuvenation and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in your appearance.
