Types of services performed by SVMC Plastic Surgery:

If your eyes are looking tired or hollow and you want to look refreshed, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. This procedure addresses the unique issues you may have in your upper and lower eyelids. Sometimes it requires removing excess and drooping skin through hidden incisions along the natural fold of your upper eyelid or along your lower lash line. Our goal is to leave you looking natural, without significantly changing your eye shape.

This procedure can raise your eyebrows to a natural level, reduce horizontal creases on your forehead, and address frown lines between your eyes. Most brow lifts are performed using an endoscopic technique, using a camera and scope through small, concealed incisions in the scalp. This approach reduces recovery time and looks very natural. The effect is to open up the area around the eyes and upper face for an overall younger look. More limited brow lifts using different techniques and incisions can also be done in men.

Your nose is a prominent feature of your face that achieves adult size sometime in your teens. If you are unhappy with the shape or size of your nose, it can greatly affect your self-confidence. A rhinoplasty surgery can reshape different areas of your nose, including the bridge, the tip and even the base of your nostrils. The procedure varies significantly based on an individual’s specific needs. In some cases, minor irregularities can be improved with non-surgical techniques like fillers.

This surgical procedure straightens the bone and cartilage dividing the space between your two nostrils (septum). When the septum is crooked, it's known as a deviated septum. Alternatively, submucous septal resection and septal reconstruction, is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten a deviated nasal septum – the nasal septum being the partition between the two nasal cavities. Ideally, the septum should run down the center of the nose.

Otoplasty is sometimes performed in children as young as 7 years old to correct prominent ears. Adults can also improve their appearance with this low-risk, minimal downtime surgery to correct protruding, proportionately large, and/or unusually shaped ears. Recovery is typically quick and results are long-lasting.

One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation with implants can enhance your curves or restore your breast shape after pregnancy or weight loss. During your consultation, SVMC Plastic Surgery will explain the various implant options and help you choose the right type, size and shape that is best for your body and goals. You will be an informed participant in the planning process.
