implants are silicone shells filled with either silicone gel or saline (salt water) and are placed behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. the procedure lasts one to two hours and is typically performed with general anesthesia. after surgery the patient's bustline may be increased by one or more cup sizes.
Abdominoplasty/ Tummy Tuck
abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps to flatten and shape the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. the best candidates are in good physical condition with pockets of fat or loose skin that haven't responded well to diet and exercise. older, slightly obese people whose skin has lost some of its elasticity can be helped.
in time, gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life take their toll on our faces: deep creases appear beside the mouth, the jawline slackens, and folds and fat deposits appear on the neck. facelifts counteract these problems by removing fat and tightening skin and muscles, giving your face a fresher, youthful look -- after surgery, some patients appear as much as ten or 15 years younger.
Gynecomastia/male Breast Reduction

botox cosmetic, or botulinum toxin type a, is a protein commonly used to non-surgically reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. it is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck.
