Contrary to popular belief, plastic surgery isn't the only option for patients seeking to enhance the face or body. In fact, Savannah Plastic Surgery specializes in a number of non-surgical procedures to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals without the scarring or downtime.
Maintaining healthy skin is a huge component of your overall well-being and appearance. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, our skin institute is home to many skin care experts who can help you find an effective solution for healthy skin. We specialize in many skin care treatments that can restore, rejuvenate, and protect the skin to encourage long-term skin health.
The Skin Institute at Savannah Plastic Surgery is home to licensed medical skin care specialists who can help you bring out the best in your skin. Since the skin is the largest organ of the body, and one that is constantly exposed to the elements, it has to take a lot of irritation and damage. Without proper care, this can lead to long-term skin damage that affects both the health and appearance of the skin. At the Skin Institute, we specialize in a variety of treatments to help reverse the damage that skin experiences on a daily basis. Plus, we offer many solutions to restore and enhance the skin, bringing out the beautiful features that it is capable of. Skin Institute treatments include in-office treatments as well as at-home protocols to improve skin health. These treatments are completely non-surgical, so you can enjoy all the benefits of skin care treatments without worrying about significant downtime or scarring.
In addition to many traditional cosmetic services and procedures, Savannah Plastic Surgery is proud to offer a range of special services to best fulfill our patients' needs. With these services, we are able to further improve our patients' quality of life.
The thigh lift is a body-contouring surgery that sculpt the upper thighs. This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the upper thigh area, contouring this area and enhancing the appearance of the thighs.
In this procedure, excess skin is removed, and underlying structural tissue is tightened. In some cases, excess fat may also be removed. This streamlines the contours of the thighs to make them look slimmer and more toned.
Most women find that their bodies change after pregnancy. Often this means:
A mommy makeover is a body-contouring treatment that combines multiple plastic surgery techniques to address the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Together, these procedures are designed to reverse these effects and restore your body’s youthful appearance.
It’s called a mommy makeover, but you don’t have to have been pregnant to benefit from the collection of procedures. Anyone who has experienced changes in their body due to aging or weight fluctuations may benefit from a mommy makeover.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a body contouring approach that eliminates loose skin and excess fat in the stomach to produce a firmer and more defined abdominal region. The abdomen is the number one most common problem area for men and women of all ages. For many, this area continues to be a problem area despite diet and exercise. Fortunately, the tummy tuck makes it possible to address this area once and for all. Whether you are struggling with stubborn fat or loose skin, the tummy tuck procedure can help you achieve your body transformation.
A Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, is a buttocks enhancement technique that uses unwanted fat from elsewhere on your body to enhance the shape and lift of the buttocks. This technique is known as a fat transfer.
While some practices offer dermal fillers for buttock augmentation, BBL is the only way to achieve truly natural-looking results. When fat is removed from another area of the body, the buttocks can be augmented with natural body fat. This creates results that look and feel natural, while simultaneously contouring another area of your body.
Liposuction is a fat reduction technique that involves the removal of fat from the body through a vacuum pump. Liposuction, often referred to simply as lipo, is used in many different surgical procedures and also as a stand-alone service. For many patients, eliminating stubborn fat is the most difficult task when it comes to achieving the ideal physique. Even with diet and exercise, it can be difficult to get rid of fat in certain areas. Liposuction is the solution to this problem. By targeting and removing fat in specific areas, patients can enjoy significant improvements in body composition that result in a more sculpted appearance. Plus, liposuction can be used on nearly any area of the body, including:
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical body-contouring technique for sculpting the upper arms. This is a problem area for many people, as it’s common for skin to sag, and fat to accumulate here.
The arm lift procedure trims excess skin and fat to contour the arms and enhance their appearance by:
Removing excess tissue and tightening structural tissue effectively slenderizes the upper arms, making them look tighter, smoother, and more youthful.
A body lift is a complete body contouring solution that addresses loose skin and stubborn fat in multiple areas of the body. While many body contouring treatments only target a specific area, the body lift procedure combines these techniques for full-body results. The body lift can be a great solution for patients who have recently achieved significant weight loss, and have excess skin remaining. It can also be an effective solution for patients who have developed sagging skin in multiple areas of the body as a result of the aging process. In any case, the body lift procedure is ideal for targeting the following areas in a single procedure:
A breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement, is a surgical technique that uses breast implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. There are many reasons a woman may choose to have a breast augmentation, including:
No matter your reason for selecting a breast augmentation, Savannah Plastic Surgery is prepared to help you get the best results possible. By specializing in a variety of implants and surgical techniques, we have helped many patients achieve their cosmetic goals through breast augmentation.
A breast reduction is a surgical technique that removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the breasts to correct them to a size that is more comfortable and proportional to the body. Having breasts that are particularly large can have a number of negative effects. You may consider a breast reduction if you are experiencing any of the following:
No matter your reason for selecting a breast augmentation, Savannah Plastic Surgery is prepared to help you get the best results possible. We even specialize in male breast reduction for patients who are experiencing symptoms of gynecomastia.
Breast reconstruction is a surgical technique that restores shape and symmetry to the breast following a mastectomy or lumpectomy.
Mastectomy and lumpectomy are two surgical procedures performed for the treatment of breast cancer. Some women choose to have a preventative mastectomy if they have a high risk of developing breast cancer.
Breast reconstruction combines surgical techniques such as tissue flaps, breast implants, or both to create results that look and feel as natural as possible. The goal of surgery is to restore the breasts as near as possible to their original shape, in terms of size, symmetry, and appearance.
There are two main categories of breast reconstruction options:
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical technique that reshapes breasts that sag due to aging or body changes. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with another breast-enhancement procedure such as breast reduction or augmentation.
Every part of the body changes with age, and breasts are no different. Skin loses its elasticity and firmness as we age, and this affects the skin of the breasts too. Combined with the effects of gravity, getting older typically means breasts begin to sag.
Certain life events can alter how your breasts look too. For instance, during pregnancy and nursing, the breasts get larger, but once the baby is born or nursing ends, breasts contract to their original size. Unfortunately, the extra breast skin that formed often doesn’t contract, which makes the breasts sag. Losing a significant amount of weight can have a similar effect on the breasts.
The breast lift procedure is designed to address any changes that cause breast sag. With a breast lift, these changes can be corrected and youthfulness restored to the breasts. If you’re interested, your plastic surgeon can also restore volume with breast augmentation techniques such as implant placement or fat transfer.
Gynecomastia, or male breast growth, is a condition in which a man develops enlarged breasts. It can develop in one or both breasts, and it’s due to swelling of glandular breast tissue in the chest area.
This condition can occur at any age and affects as many as 1 in 2 men. The common root cause of gynecomastia is typically an imbalance between two hormones:
Typically, men produce mostly testosterone along with a small amount of estrogen. If this balance is disrupted by overproduction of estrogen, it can result in gynecomastia.
Some health conditions and medications can trigger gynecomastia:
The male breast reduction procedure is similar to breast reduction surgery for women, but it’s designed specifically to address gynecomastia with your male body in mind. In gynecomastia surgery, the excess glandular breast tissue is removed, along with any excess skin or fat that may be present. This helps contour the chest and restores a more masculine appearance.
A facelift is a comprehensive facial surgery technique that addresses loose skin and wrinkles in the face. For many people, wrinkles and skin laxity, or sagging, are the most noticeable signs of aging. And often, the face is the first place where these effects are noticed. The facelift procedure is designed to lift and tighten the skin on the face. In some cases, the plastic surgeon may also tighten underlying muscle. This helps smooth out and minimize skin wrinkles and reduce skin sagging, rejuvenating your appearance and creating a more youthful look.
With a facelift, you can address the following areas:
For patients who do not need a full facelift treatment, we may recommend the FreshLook Lift®. This limited facelift procedure is focused on the lower half of the face, and specifically the jowls. The FreshLook Lift® offers the option of a less invasive procedure with less scarring and a shorter recovery time than a full facelift, although it doesn’t address the forehead.
The FreshLook Lift® is a limited facelift procedure, which uses a less invasive technique than a full facelift. Thanks to this approach, patients can enjoy less scarring, a quicker recovery, and a more affordable treatment when compared to a facelift. While a traditional facelift targets the forehead, jawline and neck, the FreshLook Lift® primarily targets the jawline. Since smaller incisions are used, this technique is best for patients who are experiencing minor skin laxity along the jawline, as opposed to more significant skin laxity and wrinkles. The incisions for the FreshLook Lift® procedure are located in front of the ears and around the earlobe, compared to facelift incisions which are located all the way around the ears and up into the hairline.
A rhinoplasty, often referred to as a nose job, is a facial surgery technique that is used to enhance the qualities of the nose. The nose is actually one of the most complicated features on the face. It contains more variations and unique qualities than almost any other facial feature. Unfortunately, genetics do not always work out in our favor! There are many instances where the qualities of the nose do not harmonize with the other facial features. Luckily, men and women who feel that their noses are asymmetrical, too large, or have other imperfections, can use the rhinoplasty procedure to improve the nose's appearance. As a result, these patients enjoy an improved facial balance and an increase in self-confidence.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a facial surgery technique that is used to rejuvenate the eyelids. Over time, the eyelids naturally begin to droop due to the gradual effect of gravity on your skin. For many patients, the main concern is that this can create a tired or weathered appearance. For some, eyelid drooping can also impair vision.
If you are experiencing either of these problems a blepharoplasty is the perfect solution. Eyelid surgery gets the desired effect by trimming excess skin and fat from the eyelids. It can restore a youthful appearance to the eye area and help you look years younger. When sagging eyelid skin causes vision impairment, blepharoplasty removes excess skin and restores vision.
This technique can be performed on the upper eyelids or lower eyelids, or both, depending on your treatment needs.
CoolSculpting® is an advanced body contouring solution that uses cooling energy to freeze and destroy fat cells. While liposuction and related surgical procedures are highly effective, surgery always involves some level of scarring and downtime. CoolSculpting®, on the other hand, is completely non-invasive. CoolSculpting® targets and destroys fat cells from the skin's surface using precise cooling energy. Once treated, these fat cells die off and are gradually eliminated from the body. As a result, patients can enjoy safe fat loss without having to undergo a surgical procedure. For these reasons, CoolSculpting® is one of the leading treatment options for non-surgical body sculpting. It can be used to address fat in the following areas:
Skin resurfacing is a type of laser treatment that uses light energy to exfoliate the skin, eliminating aged or otherwise damaged skin. In addition to eliminating imperfections in the skin's appearance, laser skin treatments stimulate collagen production deep within the skin. This process will contribute to long-term improvements in skin elasticity and skin health, making skin resurfacing a fairly comprehensive skin rejuvenation approach. Skin resurfacing can be used to address a variety of cosmetic skin concerns, including:
At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we are proud to use the Sciton Halo laser for skin resurfacing treatments. This is a hybrid fractional laser, combining the best of ablative and non-ablative lasers to offer patients an effective treatment will minimal downtime and side effects.
Botox® is a type of injectable treatment known as a neuromodulator. Neuromodulators are treatments that block nerve signals in the body. These treatments are used to target the cause of facial wrinkles to produce a more youthful appearance and prevent the further development of these unwanted traits. It is well-known that wrinkles are a side effect of aging, but their primary cause is frequent muscle movement in the face. Wrinkles develop around the eyes and forehead because these parts of the face are particularly expressive and active. Botox® and other neuromodulators block nerve signals that activate specific facial muscles. As these muscles relax, the wrinkles diminish. Therefore, these injectable treatments are effective techniques for both reducing the appearance of wrinkles and preventing them. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we currently offer Botox® and Dysport® injections, which can be used to address the following facial wrinkles:
Juvéderm® and related dermal fillers are injectable treatments that use gel-like formulas to add natural-looking volume to the skin. Natural volume loss is one of the most common effects of aging, and often causes wrinkles and sagging skin. Even patients who haven't experienced age-related volume loss may want to achieve fuller skin to enhance the contours of the face. In any case, Juvéderm® and other dermal fillers can be used to restore facial volume, smooth out lines and wrinkles, and enhance the overall appearance and youthfulness of the face. These are popular treatment options because they offer minimal downtime, instant results, and can be used to address a range of facial skin concerns. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer the following dermal filler treatments:
Profound RF is a multi-bipolar, long-pulse, radio-frequency, micro-needling device that has the unique capability of measuring skin impedance between needle pairs and adjusting the current instantaneously, to deliver the exact amount of energy selected to produce a safe treatment that reliably smooths and tightens skin.
Dr. Matthew Mcleod introduced the Profound RF system to Savannah, exclusively at Savannah Plastic Surgery. This is the only physician driven device that is 100% effective in creating 5x more elastin, up to 2x more collagen, and increased hyaluronic acid.
Profound RF will improve skin texture, tighten saggy skin in the lower face, jowls and neck as well as soften and improve lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Profound RF can also tighten skin in other areas of the body such as décolleté, lower abdomen, "banana roll" and the skin above the knees..
Profound RF is currently offered as a single treatment and can be performed using local anesthesia in the office.
Following treatment you should expect 3-7 days of swelling and redness as well as minimal bruising.
A complimentary consultation would be needed to evaluate and determine if you would benefit from this procedure as well as provide you with the cost.
A HydraFacial® is a special kind of facial. It’s performed with a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to exfoliate, clean, and hydrate the skin.
This kind of facial is a treatment called hydradermabrasion. It’s a gentle skin treatment that happens in a three-step process:
Facials are a soothing skin care treatment that offers a range of skin care benefits. Facial treatments involve the application of a topical solution to the facial skin. Depending on your treatment goals, a facial can cleanse, rejuvenate, protect, exfoliate, or nourish the skin. These are some of the most relaxing procedures offered at Savannah Plastic Surgery, and they are often considered spa or medspa treatments. Facials are also some of the gentlest treatments available, making them an excellent option for any patient who is looking to enhance the quality of the skin without downtime or side effects. Some of the benefits of facials include:
Dermabrasion is a mild skin exfoliating technique that is commonly performed to enhance the facial skin. Dermabrasion involves the use of a rotating tool, which will remove the outermost layers of skin when it is applied to the face. The dermabrasion treatment is a fairly gentle exfoliation technique, so it is often a good option for patients with sensitive skin who cannot receive treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we may recommend dermabrasion to address cosmetic skin concerns that include:
Waxing is a hair removal technique that produces long-lasting results by removing the hair at the root. Traditional hair removal approaches – like shaving – only trim the hair at the skin's surface. When the entire hair follicle is removed via waxing, it takes a significantly longer amount of time for the hair to grow all the way back to the surface. Plus, waxing is a much faster process than shaving or plucking hairs. When performed by a trained professional, waxing can be done to remove hair from entire parts of the body in a matter of minutes. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer waxing services to our patients, which can be performed on the following areas of the body:
Chemical peels are a type of facial treatment that use a more aggressive topical solution on the skin. The purpose of a chemical peel is to cause controlled exfoliation, eliminating aged, damaged, or otherwise imperfect skin from the surface. This process will remove imperfections and allow the body to produce healthier, brighter skin. Chemical peels are customizable treatments that can vary in strength depending on the skin care needs and treatment goals of the patient. Therefore, the chemical peel treatment is suitable for most patients. There are even treatment options for those with sensitive skin. With the chemical peel treatment, we can address the following skin concerns:
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a skin care technique that takes advantage of the body's natural healing properties to rejuvenate the skin. The microneedling treatment involves the use of tiny needles, which are used to puncture the skin. This triggers a healing response in the body, causing an increase in collagen production. Since the wounds caused by microneedling are very minor, they are quickly healed. The remaining collagen helps to plump the skin in the treatment area, reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and producing a more youthful appearance. Microneedling is primarily used to address signs of aging, but it can be helpful for all of the following skin concerns:
Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that is used as a permanent makeup. With the microblading treatment, small strokes of ink are etched onto the eyebrows to create the appearance of thicker, fuller, and darker eyebrows. Many patients find that this is a preferable alternative to applying makeup on a daily basis. Additionally, this can be a great option for patients who are unable to grow their eyebrows as thick as they would like. Whatever your reason for pursuing the microblading treatment, Savannah Plastic Surgery can provide you with beautiful, natural-looking results.
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation treatment that is performed to remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and other debris from the skin's surface. Compared to other exfoliation techniques, which are designed to remove multiple layers of skin to eliminate skin damage, dermaplaning is quite superficial. Instead of targeting skin beneath the surface, the dermaplaning technique is merely performed by scraping along the skin's surface. This provides a much more comfortable treatment experience, and significantly reduces any recovery period and side effects associated with treatment. While dermaplaning can help reduce fine lines and acne scars, its primary benefits include:
Permanent makeup is a cosmetic technique that applies colored pigment to the skin. This pigment is applied to areas such as the eyes, lips, and eyebrows to make them look as if makeup is applied. The pigments last for months or even years before fading, which is why these treatments are referred to as permanent makeup. Many patients choose to receive permanent makeup so that they don't have to worry about applying makeup on a daily basis, which can be quite time-consuming. Savannah Plastic Surgery specializes in a variety of permanent makeup techniques to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals.
Skin care products include a variety of products that are intended to be used at home as part of a daily skin care regimen. While in-office treatments can provide huge benefits for skin health, one of the best ways to care for the skin is by using the proper products at home. With the skin care products available at Savannah Plastic Surgery, we can help you develop the optimal skin care routine for your needs. We carry products from some of the most reputable skin care brands, many of which can only be purchased through authorized professionals. We're happy to discuss your skin care needs with you so that we can determine the product or products that will be best for you and your skin.
Skin tightening is a type of laser treatment that uses light energy to stimulate collagen production beneath the the skin, which the body then uses to lift, rejuvenate, and strengthen the skin. In addition to triggering natural skin-tightening effects in the body, laser skin tightening treatments cause an initial contraction of the skin for short-term cosmetic benefits. Unlike surgical procedures, laser skin tightening results in no scarring while taking advantage of the body's natural abilities. These treatments can be used on nearly any area of the body, although they are most commonly performed on the face, neck, arms, and abdomen. If you would like to reduce lines and wrinkles to achieve a firmer appearance in the skin, then skin tightening at Savannah Plastic Surgery may be right for you. We proudly use the Sciton SkinTyte laser for skin tightening treatments.
A HydraFacial® is a special kind of facial. It’s performed with a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to exfoliate, clean, and hydrate the skin.
This kind of facial is a treatment called hydradermabrasion. It’s a gentle skin treatment that happens in a three-step process:
Migraine surgery is a minimally invasive surgery that targets headaches caused by compressed sensory nerves. The most common sites for these compressions are known as "trigger points." You might have trigger points in your forehead, temples, back of the head, or inside the nose. Migraine surgery manually relieves the pressure on these trigger points to provide relief.
Commonly compressed nerves involved in migraines include peripheral nerves and occipital nerves, but there are many potential trigger sites. For example, migraine surgery may help with the following triggers, among others:
There are several different options for migraine surgery with varying degrees of complexity. This is because people have different combinations of migraine trigger points. If you have one trigger point, your surgery would be less complicated than if you have two or more trigger points.
Pro-Nox is a nitrous oxide delivery system that can help relieve pain and anxiety during in-office procedures. Nitrous oxide is an inhaled analgesic, which means that it relaxes and soothes the body as it is breathed in. Nitrous oxide is completely safe for patients, and instantly diminishes sensations of pain. It is a very popular accompaniment to in-office procedures because it works quickly with minimal side effects. Additionally, the patient can control how much nitrous oxide they receive. If they feel uncomfortable or anxious during a procedure, they can take more, and it takes effect in seconds. We recommend the Pro-Nox nitrous oxide delivery system for any patient looking to enjoy a pain-free cosmetic procedure.
Skin cancer removal and skin lesion removal are skin care techniques used to remove harmful growths from the skin. These are growths that are cancerous or may become cancerous if left untreated. While skin cancer is incredibly common, it can still be a very serious condition when not given the proper care. It is recommended to have any cancerous growth or suspicious skin lesion removed as soon as possible to preserve the health of the surrounding skin and minimize the risk of skin cancer. Fortunately, Savannah Plastic Surgery specializes in multiple skin cancer and skin lesion removal techniques to help patients overcome these diagnoses.
