If you are unhappy with the appearance of your body or face, then you can visit a plastic surgeon in Louisville, Ky., to plan a procedure. Modern plastic surgery offers a way to change almost every body part or facial feature. There are invasive procedures that require incisions and stitches, but there are also simpler procedures that require the use of lasers or chemicals. When you want to change something about your appearance, think carefully about what is most important to you so that you can visit our plastic surgeon for an evaluation of the problem.

What are Some of the Plastic Surgery Procedures Available?

Our surgeon will need to perform a medical examination to learn if you have any health issues such as diabetes mellitus or high blood pressure, but you will also need a mental evaluation to determine if you have realistic expectations about procedures. If you are a candidate for plastic surgery, then here are some of the invasive or noninvasive procedures that are available:

  • Arm Lift – incisions in the skin to remove and lift tissue to reduce flabby arms
  • Body Lift – incisions on the torso to tighten and lift the skin and underlying tissues
  • Tummy Tuck – cutting and adjusting the skin on the abdomen
  • Liposuction – making tiny openings to insert tubes to suction excess fat
  • CoolSculpting – a trademarked procedure for freezing or cooling fat
  • ThermiVa® – heating fatty tissue to make it easier to remove
  • ThermiTight- laser treatment to tighten lax tissue such as cellulite
  • Thigh Lift – reducing the loose skin on the thighs after weight loss
  • Ultherapy – non-invasive treatment with ultrasonic waves to tighten and lift skin
  • Rhinoplasty – performed on the nose for aesthetic and functional reasons
  • Dermal Fillers – used to fill in the hollows of the face that occur with aging
  • ThermiRF® – radio frequency treatment to reduce the signs of aging
  • Eyelids – repairing or changing the upper or lower eyelids
  • Face Lift – partial or full face lifts for men or women
  • BOTOX® – injections of a neurotoxin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Deka DOT – laser treatment to stimulate the production of collagen
  • Brow Lift – lifting the brow or forehead area of the face
  • Peels – application of chemicals to the face to remove blemishes or discolorations
  • Breast – reductions, augmentation, lifts and reconstruction
  • Skin Care – specialized skin care for males and females, including teenagers

You may want to begin with a simple procedure such as collagen stimulation to reduce the signs of aging or to eliminate acne. If you feel comfortable about a noninvasive procedure, then you can progress to a more difficult surgery that will require a longer recovery time. While some surgeries are designed for improving aesthetics, a change to your nose can improve your breathing, and a reduction in breast size can eliminate problems with back or neck pain.
