Cosmetic Surgery Detroit, MI
Dr. Hardaway is a board certified plastic surgeon who practices cosmetic surgery in the metro Detroit, Michigan area.
Cosmetic breast surgery is a surgical procedure to enhance the appearance of the breasts. The most common breast procedures are breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction.
A breast augmentation is a procedure to insert implants into the chest to increase and change the size and shape of the breasts.
A breast lift is a fairly safe procedure, though as with any major surgery, there are some risks, which are uncommon, such as infection, scar tissue that can develop or change the shape of the breast, and implant rupture. A breast lift lifts and reshapes the breasts without the use of implants.
A breast reduction reduces the size of breasts through the removal of breast tissue and reshaping of the breasts. These are major surgeries, and it will take time to recover. Recovery on average takes about three to six weeks. The cost of breast implants varies depending on the wants and needs of each patient, as well as the size of the implants. Dr. Hardaway’s staff will discuss pricing during your consultation.
There are both non-surgical and surgical methods of body contouring. Non-surgical methods include non-invasive procedures such as infrared treatment, coolsculpt, and sculpsure. Surgical methods include procedures such as an arm lift, body lift, mommy makeover, tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift (or BBL), thigh lift, or gynecomastia.
Liposuction is a surgical method of body contouring. This procedure removes fatty deposits around the body to help improve the shape of the body. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss.
A Brazilian butt lift, also known as a BBL, is a surgical procedure that transfers fat from other parts of the body to the buttocks, as well as shaping the butt. Fat is taken usually from the stomach, back, or thighs, and transferred to the butt. This procedure increases the size of the butt without the use of implants. This gives the butt a rounder and fuller appearance, resulting in a curvier appearance to the figure.
Body contouring has several non-surgical options available, such as lasers, radiofrequency, and infrared treatments. Profound is a non-surgical treatment that Dr. Hardaway performs in her AAAASF certified facility. Profound has also been FDA approved for cellulite reduction as well as skin tightening.
The cost of body contouring varies from patient to patient. Prices vary depending on the intensity of the procedure, as well as if the surgery is combined with other procedures, and the part of the body where the surgery is performed. Dr. Hardaway will discussion pricing at your consultation. As with any major surgery, there are risks, such as infection, scarring, bruising, and blood clots, but they are uncommon. Results from body contouring will last for many years. However, factors like weight gain or loss and pregnancy can affect these results. Maintaining a stable weight and a healthy diet and exercise regimen is the best way to maintain results from body contouring.
A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures commonly performed after childbirth. A full mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, and occasionally liposuction. Sometimes, liposuction is performed instead of a tummy tuck, depending on the patient. The procedure can also include a thigh lift and a Brazilian Butt Lift. The procedures are performed during a single operation, so that there is only one recovery period. Though, if needed for safety reasons, the surgeries can be performed in multiple sessions. Arm lifts, thigh lifts, and tummy tucks are all procedures that lift and tighten the mentioned areas on the body. Body lift surgery is a tool to improve the tone and shape of various parts of the body. It removes excess skin and some fat, and can be performed on both men and women. This is most commonly performed on the stomach, back, buttocks, or thighs.
A check augmentation is a procedure to alter the appearance of the cheeks. This can include non-surgical procedures like injections with fillers or fat transfer.
Fat transfer to the face is a procedure that moves fat from other areas of the body to the face. This procedure can be used to plump the skin, giving a more youthful appearance, and can correct problems such as scars. This is often performed in combination with other procedures, such as face lifts or eye lifts.
Lip augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of the lips, making them fuller and plumper. The most common method of lip augmentation nowadays is dermal fillers, which are injected. There are many different types of fillers. Dr. Hardaway will help you find the right fillers for you.
Nose surgery, also known as rhinoplasty or a nose job, is a surgical procedure to change the proportions of the nose. This includes nose size, humps on the nose, the width of the nose bridge, nostril size, and drooping or upturned nasal tips.
Facial implants are implants used to enhance or change certain areas of the face, including evening out the shape of the face or replacing lost volume. Chin implants, which increase the size of the chin, jaw implants, that increase the width of the lower part of the face, and cheek implants, which add volume to the cheeks, are common types of implants.
A brow lift is a procedure that lifts and tightens the forehead skin specifically. A brow lift does not treat the eyelids specially. If a surgery targeting the eyelids is preferred, eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, or an eye lift, is a surgery that can improve the appearance of the eyelids. This procedure can get rid of droopy eyelids and sagging skin around the eyes, and removes excess fat around the eyes, making the eyes look youthful and more open. A neck lift, also known as a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure used to tighten loose skin around the lower jaw and neck. A face lift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin on the entire face below the forehead, including the jowls. The pricing for a face or neck lift procedure varies from patient to patient. These procedures can be combined, or performed separately, or combined with other procedures. To perform a neck lift, incisions are made under the chin or behind the ears to access the neck muscles. The skin and muscles are tightened, then secured. Full recovery from a neck lift procedure can take about six to eight weeks, though normal work and activities can be resumed when cleared by the doctor. A neck lift is often combined with a face lift or brow lift. During your consultation, Dr. Hardaway will help find procedure, or combination of procedures, and plan that is right for you.
Breast reduction, also known as a reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue to achieve a smaller breast size that can help alleviate discomfort from large breasts, and achieve a breast size more suited to your frame.
Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure to restore one or both breasts to normal shape and appearance. This procedure is often performed after a mastectomy or lumpectomy, and can also be used to fix congenital deformities.
Scar revision is surgery that can drastically reduce the appearance of scars. There are several types of scar revision, including minimally invasive procedures, as well as surgery. Topical treatments are also available for simpler scars.
