Blepharoplasty Dallas

As we age our skin begins to lose elasticity and fat, which keeps it looking healthy, tight, alert and youthful. The skin, particularly around the eyes, is vulnerable to wrinkles, creases and sagging. These days there are many options for rejuvenating the skin of our eyelids, one of the most effective and popular treatments is Blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty, also known as Eyelid Lift surgery, is a procedure which removes excess skin and tightens the skin of the eyelids to reduce wrinkles, sagging and lower-lid bags. Scars are minimal to completely hidden in the natural creases of the eye so that there are no tell-tale signs of the procedure. Often Blepharoplasty is done in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as Brow Lift, Face Lift and Dermal Fillers. Learn more about if Blepharoplasty is right for you by contacting our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lester today.

Breast Augmentation Dallas

One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed today is the Breast Augmentation. This procedure has come a long way in the last few decades, becoming safer with more natural looking results possible. Most commonly performed through the use of breast implants filled with either a saline solution or silicone gel, breast augmentation has more recently begun being achieved with a third implant option, the “gummy bear implants,” and through a fat transfer procedure. The fat transfer procedure takes fat from another area of the patient’s body and uses it to naturally enhance the breasts without implants. There are pros and cons to all of these options and it is important to fully understand those benefits and risks before making an educated decision on how best to proceed on your breast enhancement journey. Regardless of what augmentation route you choose, the most important decision you will make is finding the right plastic surgeon for you.

The first step in any breast augmentation journey is scheduling a consultation to discuss your goals with your plastic surgeon. This is a great time to ask all your questions and get as informed as possible about the procedure and your specific options. It’s always a good idea to write down your questions before you get there so you don’t forget to ask something. Ideal candidates are in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure and potential outcome. One good way to get a basic idea of what kind of results are possible is by looking at before and after photos.

Abdominoplasty Dallas

 Abdominoplasty is a procedure designed to help men and women achieve a tighter, firmer mid-section. Many men and women are dissatisfied with their mid-section for various reasons from genetics, aging, dramatic weight loss, to the effects of pregnancy. For those with excessive sagging skin in the mid-section, or loose and/or separated abdominal muscles, a Abdominoplasty may be the best way to restore youth and improve body contour to the abdomen.

In some cases, a Tummy Tuck alone may not be enough to create the desired results and other body contouring procedures can often be used in conjunction with it such as Liposuction, Thigh and Buttock Lift, or Breast Lift. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Lester to find out if Abdominoplasty may be right for you.

Breast Lift Dallas

Over time our bodies react to the effects of aging by sagging, drooping and wrinkling. Various parts of the body may be in more advanced stages of aging than others due to life experiences such as pregnancy and breast feeding, which can cause the breasts and skin of the abdomen to sag and droop. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts due to breast sagging, you may be a good candidate for a Breast Lift.

The Breast Lift procedure is designed to remove excess sagging skin from the breasts to create a lift for smoother, more youthful and firm breasts. Sometimes, if breast mass has also been lost, a Breast Lift may be coupled with a Breast Augmentation for ultimate results. Learn more and see results, then contact our office to schedule your consultation today.

Liposuction Dallas

Whether you have trouble losing weight and toning up your thighs, your abdomen, your arms or your buttock, the fact of the matter is, we all have areas of our body that are less responsive to diet and exercise than other areas of our body. This is due largely to genetics. If you are unhappy with an area of your body and are frustrated by the lack of change occurring through diet and exercise alone, you may be a good candidate for Liposuction.

Liposuction is not a cure for weight loss, but rather it can target a specific area of the body that is holding on to excess fatty deposits and it literally sucks out the fat cells through tiny incisions and a long, skinny tube. To learn more about if Liposuction may be right for you, contact our office to set up a consultation appointment. You can also read more about it here!

Breast Reconstruction Dallas

It’s a reality no woman hopes to have to face, but for the many women who do undergo a mastectomy the options available to her today for reconstruction have never been more plentiful. Dr. Lester helps women restore their self-confidence and quality of life through natural looking Breast Reconstruction. Breast reconstruction can be done immediately after a mastectomy, or it can be performed later if the patients so chooses or needs.

Breast Reconstruction can be done in a few difference ways, such as through skin expansion with a tissue expander. This method uses a balloon expander, which is placed under the chest muscle, and is gradually filled with saline to stretch the skin to accommodate a the breast implant. Another options is through flap reconstruction which uses a portion of skin, fat and muscle from the back or abdomen to create the new breast mound. This method has a longer recovery period, but only requires one surgery instead of the two typically needed for skin expansion with a tissue expander and implant. Another added benefit to the flap reconstruction, besides it using all natural tissue, is that the portion taken from the abdomen or back will appear trimmer and flatter.

The first step to determine if Breast Reconstruction may be right for you and which kind of reconstruction may be right for you, is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lester.
