Advanced Surgical Procedures

The Department of Plastic Surgery offers the latest technological advances in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, providing patients more treatment options to consider. Our board-certified and fellowship trained plastic surgeons have experience in performing some of the most complex procedures in plastic surgery to-date including:

  • Endoscopic Instrumentation: performed using an endoscope, a special probe with a lighted camera, which allows surgeons to see images of the body through tiny incisions. Endoscopic surgery allows patients to experience faster recovery times, reduces scarring and has fewer post-surgery side effects.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery:Instead of using a large incision to perform a surgery, minimally invasive procedures use a series of small incisions. The net result is lower blood loss, less post-operative pain and a less scarring.
  • Short Scar Techniques: A less invasive surgical method commonly used in facelifts and breast lifts, short scar techniques involve fewer and smaller incisions to reduce visible scars and recovery time.
  • Post-Bariatric Body Contouring: Body contouring involves procedures to remove excess, sagging fat and skin to improve the shape and tone of your body, which may appear irregular and misshapen following significant weight loss.
