                                  Breast Augmentation
                                 This past year, we introduced breast augmentation with saline and silicone implants to our cosmetic surgery practice.
                                 In keeping with the national experience, the satisfaction rate of this procedure is among the highest of those we
                                                 perform. Throughout the short period of time we have been doing breast augmentation, we have
                                                 gained considerable experience in a wide variety of patient presentations, some of which have been
                                                 quite challenging. Currently, in addition to offering primary breast augmentation, we feel comfortable
                                                 in performing revision surgery for those who want to change out or otherwise improve upon their old
                                                 implants. We can place implants through an incision in the armpit (transaxillary), under the breast
                                                 (inframammary) or through the areola (transareolar). This year we will be also performing breast
                                                 augmentation through a belly button incision (transumbilical) for those who desire this approach. If
                                                 you are interested in breast augmentation, visit our website, see our before and after photos, and
                                                 come in for a free consultation.

                                             liposuction and lipodissolve?
                                                                                           States was born on the same

                                                                                           controversial British
                                                                                           naturalist. Who were they?

                                                  That’s a great question. Liposuction is a surgical procedure usually requiring sedation to remove

                                   A.        unwanted fat from under the skin. The area concerned is numbed with dilute local anesthetic (tumescent
                                             anesthetic) and a long slender tube (cannula) attached to a suction device is introduced through tiny holes
                                             made in the skin. The fat is removed by moving a cannula back and forth in the tumesced area until it is
                                             contoured appropriately. Liposuction is very safe, usually complication-free, recovery is rapid, and the
                                             results are predictable. Large areas of the body can be treated at one time and rarely more than one
                                             treatment is required.
                                                  Lipodissolve is a non surgical procedure requiring no sedation. The doctor injects small amounts of a fat
                                             dissolving chemical under the skin in the area concerned. Results are less predictable than liposuction and
                                             more than one treatment session is usually required. Not uncommonly after a lipodissolve treatment there can
                                             be painful swelling and inflammation. Lipodissolve is not an appropriate way to treat large areas of the body.
                                             However, for those who do not want surgery and have a small area they want improved, this procedure may be
                                             ideal. Shortly, we will be offering lipodissolve to our patients.
