face lift procedures are among the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures in our practice. most people feel physically and mentally vigorous and energetic long after their appearance has begun to deteriorate due to aging. a face lift procedure is designed to provide you with a rejuvenated appearance. the degree of improvement achieved depends on the severity of the initial deformity and the age of the patient.
the threadlift procedure is a non-surgical, no scar facelift performed using tiny surgical sutures (called threads) to lift and support droopy elements of the face, cheeks, neck and brow. the threads are inserted under the skin in precise locations using a small hollow needle placed painlessly after local numbing of the area. the thread is able to grasp onto the droopy soft tissue which is then lifted and repositioned into a more youthful position. the threads are then secured deep under the skin.
the main attraction of this procedure is that it allows the surgeon to remove stubborn, localized fat deposits through tiny incisions permanently as the suctioned fat will not return. this procedure has been designed to remove localized, stable fat deposits which cannot be controlled by diet and exercise. it is neither an alternative method of weight control nor a treatment for generalized obesity; nor will suction lipectomy help loose skin (without a traditional resection), persistent fat not responsive to suctioning or to contour irregularities caused by structures other than fat (e.g. bone, muscle weakness, protrusion of intra-abdominal contents, etc.).
Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty)
an abdominoplasty is an operation in which the loose skin and fat of the abdominal wall, particularly around the navel, is removed by elevation of the skin and fat, pulling it inferiorly and excising the excess. it is particularly effective in removing stretch marks from the lower abdomen, but it must be understood that not all stretch marks can be eliminated. the navel is reinserted into the skin after the tightening procedure.
many women feel that their breasts do not match their overall body physique. small breast size may be due to a lack of normal breast development or to a decrease of breast volume following pregnancy or menopause. this procedure is designed to give the female patient a fuller breast.
