Office Based Body Sculpting
OUR MENU OF AFFORDABLE OFFICE BASED BODY SCULPTING
BILATERAL MINI BRACHIOPLASTY
Best for patients with milder skin excess, or excess localized to
the area just beyond the armpits; procedure done with armpit
BILATERAL LIPOSCULPTURE OF ARMS
For those with good skin tone, usually requiring only two
pinhole incisions around the elbow.
There procedures are very amenable to being done together
for optimal effect.
AESTHETIC BREAST PROCEDURES IN OFFICE
For the nipple that is felt to have excessive length or projection
off the aerola. A surprisingly straightforward method to
telescope the excessive nipple back into the aerola.
INVERTED NIPPLE CORRECTION
Done through two tiny incisions at the perimeter of the nipple,
with local anesthesia. Note: may interfere with breast feeding
and does not create a very large or high nipple projection.
AESTHETIC AREOLAR PROCEDURES
The least invasive method of mastopexy or breast lift. The
nipple and aerola are lifted by excision of a "crescent" of skin,
up to one inch, above the areala with plastic closure.
A donut of excessive areola is excised under local anesthesia,
with a special closure technique. The areolas are sometimes
hard to reduce on a long term basis, they have a tendency to
want to re-enlarge. This is prevented by placement of a
permanent biocompatible purse string suture at the time of
surgery to hold the diameter. This method is similiar to the
circumareolar form of mastopexy designed by the French
plastic surgeon, Benelli.
By removing a donut of skin surrounding the aerola, the
aerolas can be somewhat enlarged. The enlarged areola,
unlike the reduced areola, does not have the tendency to
relapse to its orginal state.
Many areas of the body are amenable to liposculpture using
various methods. Large areas or volumes do need to be done
in an operating room under anesthesia, but smaller areas
certainly can be done under local anesthesia. We have
successfully performed lipo on many areas under a pure local
anesthesia, including neck, knees, arms, back, and smaller
areas of the trunk. At consultation, our ability to perform local
anesthesia liposuction can be determined.
This is the most common plastic surgical procedure in the
nation of Japan. Reduction, conversion from external to
internal, and repositioning procedures are available.
AESTHETIC SURGERY OF THE GENITALIA
For women with excssive volume of labia majora, which
interferes with comfort in certain clothing and involvement in
sports (especially bicycling). Topical anesthesia is highly
effective in the area and allows a suprisingly comfortable
experience. Patients undergoing this procedure have reported
very high satisfaction rates, and due to excellent blood supply
in this area, healing tends to be rapid.
For especially older men, whose scrotums have developed
gravitational descent and comfort issues. The scrotum is very
amenable to tucking and lifting under local anesthesia, and
generally heals very rapidly and very well.
NOTE: ALL PROCEDURES (EXCEPT TITAN LASER AND OBAGI BLUE PEEL) ARE SUBJECT TO A FACILITY/SUPPLY CHARGE DEPENDING UPON THEIR MAGNITUDE.
