Undertaking cosmetic surgery procedures helps improve previous medical conditions or reach a desired look. A skilled plastic surgeon assesses your medical history and desired outcome to determine an appropriate procedure for your goals. At Somerset Plastic Surgery, we offer various facial, breast, body, and skin procedures to help you achieve the appearance you want. Here are some of the procedures our surgeons perform:

Face Lift

A facelift or a rhytidectomy is a procedure to improve aging signs on your face and neck by removing excess fat and loose skin. This procedure can restore smooth lines at your mouth corners and between the nose, chin, and cheeks.

When you book a consultation with our specialist, they’ll first listen to your needs and goals to recommend a suitable procedure. At the start of the procedure, you are put under general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon makes inconspicuous incisions around the ears, under the chin, in your mouth, at your temples, around the hairline, or the lower scalp. Stitches can be removed up to a week or more after the procedure, and recovery takes a few weeks.

Nose Reshaping

Nose reshaping, also known as rhinoplasty, can be done for aesthetic purposes or to improve your breathing. Our surgeon can adjust your nostril size, reshape your nose cartilage, or remove a hump to achieve your desired results. If it’s desired, they can also change the angle between the nose and mouth. Our specialists use anesthesia for pain management to enhance comfort and relaxation during the procedure. 

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure that takes our surgeons around one to two hours. They make incisions using an open or closed procedure. During a closed procedure, the incisions can be hidden in the nose. In an open procedure, they help to cut across the thin tissue strip separating the nostrils.

Breast Lift

Breast lift or mastopexy involves the removal of excess skin to improve the shape and appearance of breasts. This procedure helps to lift breasts due to aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. It lasts between one to three hours. Our surgeons perform breast lifts under general anesthesia and hide incisions to help reshape the breast tissue. This procedure can also be combined with other augmentations for added volume or a desired look. This way, you can have a firmer, fuller, and more proportioned appearance. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a procedure performed to increase the size of your breasts using implants. You can use this procedure if you’re looking to enlarge your breasts, regain their fullness after pregnancy or weight loss, or you want to improve their asymmetrical shape. You can combine this procedure with a breast lift for more satisfying results.

At Somerset Plastic Surgery, our specialists place saline-filled silicone implants under the chest wall muscle or underneath the breast tissue on both sides. This process is an outpatient procedure that lasts one to two hours.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes unwanted fats from targeted body areas. It sculpts areas like hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. This procedure can help you achieve a leaner and more proportionate body shape. This can include an arm or body lift, as both procedures will help remove any excess skin or fat and restore the toned physique. 

After substantial weight loss or gain, skin on the upper arms may become inelastic or loose. Arm lifts, also known as brachioplasty, help to remove excess skin and fat, restoring the toned shape of the arm. A body lift can focus on various areas, including the back, buttocks, thighs, or hips. This procedure can be combined with facelifts or breast lifts.

Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty is commonly referred to as a tummy tuck. This procedure helps flatten, firm, and smooth out skin around your tummy or abdomen. Individuals with loose abdomen skin mainly undertake it due to significant weight loss, post-partum, aging, or previous surgery. The difference between an abdominoplasty and liposuction is that the former does not reduce belly fat but only removes loose skin.

Our specialists take two to five hours to conduct a tummy tuck. Under general anesthesia, the surgeon will make an incision on the lower abdomen—between your belly button and lower pelvis area. Our surgeons then recommend appropriate sitting postures and painkillers to help manage pain during recovery. Depending on the circumstance, most time ranges to heal can take a few weeks to a few months.
