Common Plastic Surgery Procedures
Breast reduction surgery entails the removal of skin and tissue from the breast, followed by reshaping and elevating to create a smaller, more proportionate bust size. For those with large breasts, breast reduction surgery can ease discomfort and improve appearance.
Breast augmentation is surgery to increase breast size. It involves placing breast implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. For some women, breast augmentation is a way to feel more confident. For others, it's part of rebuilding the breast for various conditions.
A scar revision is a procedure done on a scar to alter the appearance of the scar. The revision may improve the cosmetic appearance of the scar, restore function to a part of the body that the scar may have restricted, or improve an itchy scar.
If you have lost a lot of weight or recently had a baby, you may be feeling self-conscious about having loose skin around the middle. A "tummy tuck" is a popular cosmetic surgery for removing excess skin and fat from the abdomen.
It is important to note that although a tummy tuck can improve your shape and appearance, it is not a weight loss surgery. Only about three to four pounds of fat are lost during a typical tummy tuck. Patients looking to lose significant weight should contact the Middlesex Health Center for Surgical Weight Loss.
People choose to have body sculpting to look and feel thinner or to attain a certain shape. However, body contouring is not weight loss surgery. Instead, it helps shape the body and address specific areas where weight loss isn’t effective or after significant weight loss results in extra skin. It can also improve loose, saggy, or wrinkled skin that occurs with natural aging. Body contouring can target most areas of the body. Common sites include Arms, Back, Buttocks, Neck, and Thighs.
Rhytidectomy, a surgical procedure commonly known as a facelift, involves the removal of excess facial fat, the tightening of facial muscles, and the trimming or redraping of facial skin to approximate a smoother, firmer facial appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a surgery that removes excess skin from the eyelids. With age, eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin and fat can gather above and below your eyelids. This can cause sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids, and bags under the eyes. By reducing sagging skin around the eyes, you can improve your peripheral vision and make your eyes look younger and more alert.
Our team collaborates with specialists from the Middlesex Health Cancer Center and utilizes the latest surgical techniques for breast reconstruction. This includes both implant-based techniques and microsurgical techniques.
Each technique has different side effects, surgical times, and recovery periods. These options allow for highly individualized care. While some techniques are intensive in terms of surgical procedures and post-operative care, as a Middlesex health patient, you have access to our world-class facilities, staff, and equipment, which makes us the smarter choice for care.
