Mommy Makeovers offer women who have experienced the physical changes caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding the opportunity to comprehensively renew their body contours and rejuvenate their appearance. A customized Mommy Makeover includes a carefully chosen selection of cosmetic enhancement options designed to address a number of concerns. The most popular treatments in a Mommy Makeover typically include those that restore the appearance of areas such as the abdomen and breasts—which are often the regions most affected after pregnancy—as well as other areas showing signs of excess fat accumulation, inelastic skin, or other concerns. With all of this in mind, many women who are considering a Mommy Makeover wonder how long they should wait before having these types of procedures. In… Continue Reading

“Jowls” are characterized by excess, inelastic skin that collects just under the cheeks and along the jawline. This is a very common concern, and one that can affect just about everybody, regardless of how well they take care of their health and their skin. This is due to the fact that the skin loses elasticity and collagen as the natural aging process continues. Factors such as genetics, weight fluctuations, smoking, and sun exposure can also contribute to the development of jowls, but aging is usually the most prominent cause. Fortunately, there are treatment options available that can reduce signs of jowls to create firmer skin in the mid- to lower face, along with a more contoured jawline. A surgical facelift… Continue Reading

Reconstructive surgery offers women who are facing the physical and emotional turmoil of a mastectomy a way to rebuild the breast with results that can closely mimic the look and feel of a natural breast. The field of breast reconstruction has seen numerous advances over the years, and there are now several different options for breast restoration with either the patient’s own tissue, implants, or a combination of the two. This ultimately gives patients more of a selection to choose from when deciding upon the ideal type of breast reconstruction for their unique anatomical needs and goals.  Our plastic surgeons in Jacksonville offer the entire spectrum of breast reconstruction techniques. During the initial consultation, our doctor will conduct an examination,… Continue Reading

It is very common for men to develop excess fat in the breast area at some point in their lives. This condition can also be caused by excess glandular tissue in the breasts, which can affect men from early adolescence well into adulthood. The term “gynecomastia” is often used to describe these effects, and men who experience enlarged breasts can suffer from extreme self-consciousness due to the condition. Whether gynecomastia can be reduced by exercise is a common question, and the answer ultimately depends on the type of gynecomastia present and exactly what is causing the condition.  In cases where the breasts are enlarged because of a collection of excess fat in the area, some individuals may achieve some degree… Continue Reading

Browlift surgery and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) are two very popular treatments among patients who wish to address signs of age and other common aesthetic concerns in the upper facial areas. While both of these options can produce significant rejuvenating effects and create a more youthful and refreshed look, it’s important to understand the many distinctions between them since they are ultimately designed to achieve very different goals.  A browlift is often recommended for patients who have deep furrows and creases between the eyebrows and/or prominent lines across the forehead. In addition, a browlift can be an ideal option in cases where the brow has descended over time, ultimately causing excess weight over the upper eyelids and producing a constantly tired… Continue Reading
