Plastic Surgery at Audubon Surgery Center
Plastic surgery is a specialized field of medicine that deals with the repair, reconstruction, or replacement of physical defects and abnormalities of the body. Plastic surgery can be divided into two main categories: cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic surgery is performed to improve the appearance of the patient, while reconstructive surgery is performed to correct functional impairments.
Plastic surgeons at Audubon Surgery Center are experts in the following procedures (but not limited to):
- Mohs and flap repairs: Mohs and flap repairs are two common methods for treating skin cancer. Mohs surgery involves removing the cancerous tissue in layers, while flap repair entails cutting out the cancerous tissue and then stitching the healthy tissue back together.
- Breast Augmentations: Breast augmentations are a type of cosmetic surgery that can be performed to enlarge the breasts. The procedure involves using implants to add volume to the breasts, and can be performed for both cosmetic and reconstructive purposes. Breast augmentation surgery is typically performed using silicone or saline implants, and the choice of implant will depend on the individual’s specific needs and goals.
- Abdominoplasty: Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the abdomen. This surgery is usually performed to improve the appearance of the stomach area, but it can also be used to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Abdominoplasty can be an effective way to address a number of cosmetic concerns, including loose skin, stretch marks, and protruding bellybutton. In some cases, this surgery may also be used to correct functional problems such as hernias.
- Facial Procedures: Facial plastic surgery is becoming increasingly popular, as people of all ages seek to achieve a more youthful appearance. Facial procedures can be performed on both men and women, and the most common procedures include facelifts, eyelid lifts, and nose reshaping. Facelifts are designed to address sagging skin and wrinkles, while eyelid lifts can help to improve vision and reduce the appearance of fatigue. Nose reshaping surgery can correct a wide variety of aesthetic concerns, from a crooked nose to a bulbous tip.
