Non-Surgical / Injectables
BOTOX - This is currently the most popular way of treating “between the brow” furrows, transverse forehead creases, crow’s feet and lip lines. A very small amount of botulinum toxin (botox) is injected into the muscle which is causing deep and/or superficial furrows. This paralyzes the muscle so that wrinkling is no longer possible and the lines smooth out.
- is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases JUVÉDERM® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses".
RESTYLANE - Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane lasts from 6-9 months.
SCHLEROTHERAPY (VARICOSE VEINS) - Injection sclerotherapy is a primary treatment option for small varicose veins and spider veins. Asclera Injection is indicated for sclerotherapy of spider veins and small varicose veins in the lower extremities.
Body Cosmetic Surgery
MOMMOMPLASTY (BREAST AUGMENTATION) - Breast Augmentation (Mammomplasty) alters size, raises or reshapes breasts. This is usually performed on women who feel their breasts are too small. Other women may have asymmetry (one breast smaller than the other) or loss of breast mass due to pregnancy or weight loss. Patient’s anatomy is the guide to the choice of technique for surgery, whether to place the implants above or underneath the muscle. Placement of the incision is decided by the physician and the patient.
BREAST REDUCTION - It’s a fact: many women are destined to develop breasts so large they can cause nothing but discomfort. Back pain, neck pain and rashes under the breasts are common complaints, but women with arthritis of the spine or shoulders can suffer significantly. Breast reduction can help these problems.
LIPOSUCTION/LIPOSCULPTING - Liposuction is a procedure for you if you have excess subcutaneous fat, which is resistant to diet and exercise, or if you wish to change the contours of your body. Commonly areas are under the chin, upper arms, male chest, abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, inner knees, calves, and ankles.
ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK) - The tummy tuck is also referred to as “abdominoplasty”. The tummy-tuck is used for patients with large excesses of skin, or for those with stretched skin and poor abdominal muscle tone. The operation is also excellent for removing surgical scars and stretch marks from the lower half of the abdomen.
BUTTOCKS LIFT - This operation is designed to elevate the sagging buttock. Despite exercise and weight loss, sagging skin remains to mar even the most beautiful of figures.
BUTTOCK IMPLANT - Placed under the buttock, they elevate and fill-out what would otherwise be a flat buttock. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis and patients are able to return to work within one week.
CALF AUGMENTATION - The procedure is for individuals who are unsatisfied with their muscle development I in their calf area.
THIGH LIFT - For patients with excessive amounts of loose skin of the inner or outer thighs, this is the procedure of choice. Many of the candidates that fall into this category are people who have lost large amounts of weight, resulting in loss of elasticity in the skin. Despite the most intensive exercise programs, this skin tone cannot be recovered.
Facial Cosmetic Surgery
RHINOPLASTY (Nose Surgery) - Nose reshaping is intended to produce a more attractive nasal shape and/or a nose in better proportion to other facial features.
FACE LIFT - People who choose to have face and neck lifts do so because they do not like the effects of the aging process.
BLEPHAROPLASTY (EYE LID SURGERY) - Eyelid surgery is for individuals who want to correct drooping upper lids and the puffy bags under the eyes which make you look older and more tired than you feel. Eyelid surgery’s effect is to give the eyes a more rested and invigorated look.
BROW LIFT - This procedure is utilized to lift the brow area. This procedure is usually recommended for women due to the ability to use make-up on the brow. The brow lift can be incorporated with other cosmetic facial procedures.
CHIN IMPLANT - Chin augmentation can create better harmony between the chin and other facial features for a more balanced profile by increasing its projection.
