Face Procedures

Facelift []

If you are bothered by the changes in your face associated with aging, a facelift may be right for you. In general, facelifts can reduce sagging skin and muscles, restore firmness, and soften wrinkles. This can uncover a more youthful, energetic face.

Forehead lift []

As a person ages they begin to lose elasticity in their skin, and the muscle and fat begins to lose its tone. This results in an appearance of being old, tired, sad, or angry. The brow lift (or forehead lift) procedure is designed to restore a more vibrant, youthful look by repositioning a low or sagging brow, and tightening the skin that may be wrinkled or creased across the forehead.

Eyelid Surgery []

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. Blepharoplasty includes repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat.

Rhinoplasty []

Rhinoplasty, also known as nose surgery, is a common procedure to improve the appearance and proportion of the nose. It can also be performed to correct birth defects, breathing difficulties, or to repair deformities caused by injury. Changing the size, shape, or proportions of the nose can often help improve self-confidence.

Head & Neck Reconstruction []

After excision of head and neck cancer, many patients are left with structural and functional debilities that can interfere with body image and also the ability to carry out activities of daily living. Through plastic surgery procedures, structural and functional restoration can be achieved.

Breast Procedures

Breast Augmentation []

Breast augmentation enlarges a woman’s breasts through the surgical placement of breast implants. In general, it is a cosmetic procedure performed to fulfill personal desire for larger breasts, to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, or to balance a difference in breast size.

Breast Lift []

Breast lift, or mastopexy, is designed to recreate the appearance of firm and more youthful breasts. Whether from childbirth and breastfeeding, changes in weight, gravity, or the natural aging process, a woman’s breasts will change over time. These factors can result in sagging breasts losing their elasticity and firmness, a condition also known as ptosis.

Breast Reconstruction []

Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size. Following a mastectomy and depending on the individual patient’s circumstances - such as whether radiation therapy is required as a part of the treatment protocol - saline-filled or silicone gel implants or tissue from other areas of the body (also known as an “autologous reconstruction”) – and sometimes a combination of the two – may be used.

Breast Reduction []

Breast reduction is a procedure used to remove excess breast tissue, fat and skin. The nipple and areola can also be shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts usually has been stretched, can be reduced in size. Skin that was formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast.

3D Nipple Tattooing by Jeff Paetzold []

Nipple reconstruction is a relatively minor procedure, and can often create an immense difference in how you feel about your breast reconstruction. There are various nipple reconstruction options and alternatives, as well as the option to pursue nipple reconstruction with 3D nipple tattooing.

" Dr. Marco Ellis performed several procedures on my mother, removing a carcinoma from her nose and then extensive reconstructive surgery. Removing the carcinoma fully took several procedures and by the time it was done, she looked horrifying. Most of her nose was missing and she looked downright mutilated. Everything I'd read about Dr. Ellis and Northwestern told me that they are among the best reconstructive specialists in the Midwest, even the United States, but I was... secretly convinced that there was only so much they could do with rebuilding her nose after so much damage...
