Cosmetic & Aesthetic Surgery
Our expertise encompasses elective procedures such as:
- Breast enlargement and reduction
- Body contouring (often following significant weight loss or bariatric surgery)
- Tummy tucks
- Face lifts and injections
- Brow lifts
- Nose reshaping
When possible, cosmetic procedures are done using minimally invasive techniques, resulting in smaller incisions, less pain and a faster recovery.
Our specialists have extensive experience performing breast reconstruction and other reconstructive procedures following cancer surgery. Microsurgical options for breast reconstruction include DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) flap surgery, a technique that preserves muscle and eliminates the risk associated with breast implants.
Surgery for Skin Cancer
We work with patients with skin cancer—melanoma, squamous and basal—to remove the cancerous cells and restore appearance. You have access to Mohs micrographic surgery, an advanced approach to removing skin cancer that minimizes damage to the skin.
Other Types of Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery is also used to correct birth defects or developmental abnormalities, such as cleft palate, and to repair form and function after accidents, burns, wounds, infection or disease.
"Skin grafts and flaps are commonly done," says Robert Yoo, MD. "We see a lot of dog bites, car accidents and power saw accidents, and this surgery is a vast improvement for these severely injured patients."
Minimally invasive endoscopic techniques are used instead of traditional surgery for many hand surgeries, such as surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.
