Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the top 3 most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. Hundreds of thousands of women have taken the step toward a shapelier figure. Breast Augmentation may be used to correct volume loss after pregnancy, balance breast size asymmetries, or simply to enhance the shape and size of your breasts. There are several techniques commonly used to perform breast augmentation. The best technique for you will depend upon your particular anatomy and your desired results. In your personal consultation Dr. Boyd will look at photographs with you and listen to your wishes in order to design a customized plan to maximize your results. Various implant options are now available including saline implants and cohesive silicone gel implants. These are commonly referred to as “gel” or “gummy bear” implants. For added piece of mind, Dr. Boyd now offers breast implants with a lifetime leak guarantee. Please contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Breast Lift

Over the years breasts can lose their shape and firmness due to pregnancy, nursing and loss of skin elasticity. Sagging breasts can be unattractive and uncomfortable. Sagging breasts can make clothing fit poorly and can cause you to look older than you really are. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, restores a more youthful appearance to a woman’s breasts. This procedure will raise and reshape breasts and reverse the effects of aging and gravity. This procedure can also reduce the size of the areola, which is the dark skin around the nipple. Several types of breast lifts are available depending on your individual needs.
A breast lift is performed as an outpatient surgery with patients typically returning to work in just a few days. Please contact us to schedule your consultation to discuss the various breast lift options.

 

Breast Reconstruction

For women who have lost their breasts due to cancer or other conditions, breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life. The goal of breast reconstruction is to make you look and feel more comfortable and even in clothing. Several options exist to reconstruct a breast. For women who have undergone mastectomy to treat breast cancer, the Federal Women’s Health Care Act of 1998 mandates that insurance companies cover the costs of breast reconstruction as well as procedures required to lift or enhance the opposite breast to improve symmetry. To meet with Dr. Boyd and review your options please contact us to arrange your consultation.

Liposuction

When diet and exercise alone are not producing the results that you desire, you may consider liposuction to eliminate pockets of fat in stubborn areas. Liposuction is a very popular procedure that is designed for the permanent removal of fatty tissue that is out of proportion to the rest of the body. Dr. Boyd performs liposuction using the pure Tumescent, no incision, microcannular technique. A special solution is used to provide local anesthesia to the area being targeted. Next, micro-suction cannulas no bigger than a pencil lead are introduced through 1.5-millimeter sites called adits. These small cannulas allow for smoother results while minimizing trauma to the tissues. The local anesthesia solution minimizes bleeding and greatly reduces the risk and recovery associated with traditional liposuction. Tumescent liposuction is widely regarded as the safest form of liposuction.

Patients are amazed to find they can talk on their cell phones or listen to music while the procedure is being performed and with this technique most patients are back to work in a day or two with only Tylenol needed for postoperative discomfort.

If you have a troublesome area that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise, contact us for your consultation to see if Tumescent liposuction is right for you.

Arm Lift (Brachieoplasty)

Loose upper arm skin is most often related to weight loss but can also be caused by aging and heredity. If you were ever overweight, you more than likely developed heavy upper arms. To accommodate the increased volume of the upper arms, your skin stretched. After weight loss, skin often fails to tighten, giving it a sagging appearance. An arm lift procedure (also called Brachieoplasty) can eliminate this excess skin and give you a more youthful appearance. Brachieoplasty can also significantly improve the fit and feel of clothing.

If you are interested in discussing options to treat excess skin and tissue of the upper arm please contact us to arrange your consultation.

Botox & Facial Fillers

Botox is a non-surgical treatment effective in temporarily minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles by reducing the activity of small muscles causing the wrinkles. Common treatment areas include frown lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose, crow's-feet at the corners of the eyes and forehead creases. A typical treatment can be performed in our office in less than 10 minutes with no recovery time.  A few days after treatment, patients begin to notice a gradual improvement in lines and wrinkles in the treated area that can last up to 4 months. Please contact us today to schedule your appointment.

Facial fillers can be used to restore volume loss and smooth wrinkles in certain areas of the face. They can also be used to add fullness to lips and enhance your smile. Facial Fillers can be administered in our office in only a few minutes and their effects can last up to a year or more depending on the treatment area and the type of filler that is best for your situation.

Mommy Make Over

The experience and miracle of childbirth is nothing short of amazing but the process can have many unwanted effects on a woman's body that will not respond to diet and exercise. A woman's breast and abdomen go through some of the most extreme changes during pregnancy. and often times results in volume loss in the upper part of the breast, drooping and sagging of the breasts, and possibly loose skin with stretch marks on the lower abdomen. For women who require a Cesarian Section (C-Section) during their child's birth, the effects can be magnified with a thick or contracted scar on the lower abdomen. These body changes can be uncomfortable, unsightly, and make it difficult to find clothes that fit properly.

A "Mommy Make Over" addresses these changes by lifting and restoring breast volume as needed while revising C-Section scars, removing stubborn abdominal "baby fat", and contouring the torso. There are a wide range of options and procedures that can benefit patients depending on their specific anatomy. In your consultation, you will meet with Dr. Boyd and he will review your specific situation along with your hopes and desires. Together, you will discuss a custom plan tailored to address your concerns and maximize your individual results.
