Liposuction remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures due to its success at removing unwanted pockets of fat from the body. Although many people mistake liposuction for a weight-loss surgery, it is actually more appropriate for patients who are fairly close to their goal weight and have stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise cannot seem to resolve. After Dr. Ereso suctions fat cells from your body, your body will have more pleasant contours. Best of all, the results of liposuction should last for as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, in large part due to its customizable nature. During the consultation phase, the patient will choose the size, shape and texture (saline, silicone or form stable “gummy bear” silicone) of their implants. Dr. Ereso will listen carefully to each patient’s requests and devise a surgery-specific plan that results in the precise size and position that the woman hoped for. Dr. Ereso also performs autologous breast augmentation for women who would prefer to augment their breasts with their own tissue via a fat transfer.
Although you cannot stop the aging process, surgery can help to reverse the signs of aging. The wrinkles and loose skin that accumulate on the lower half of your face as you get older can be significantly reduced by tightening the skin with facelift surgery. Most facelift procedures incorporate elements of neck lift as well to reduce the fat and sagging skin that form beneath the chin. Facelift will leave you with a rejuvenated face, and the results can last upwards of 10 years before further work is necessary.
Upper Arm Lift
Stubborn fat can cling to the body despite proper diet and exercise, and that can be especially true on the arms. Dr. Ereso meets with patients who want to get rid of the excess skin and fat that dangles from their arms, a feat that is achievable with upper arm lift, also known as brachioplasty. The procedure involves making an incision on the underside of the arm to eliminate the loose skin hanging between the armpit and elbow. If there is sufficient fat present, he will also use liposuction to create more pleasant contours on the arms.
One of the biggest breakthroughs in injectable treatments is SCULPTRA Aesthetic, a volumizing formula that uses poly L lactic acid to reverse signs of aging. Dr. Ereso recommends SCULPTRA Aesthetic for treating smile and marionette lines, as well as the hollows that form beneath the eyes. Over time, your body removes the poly L lactic acid, replacing it with collagen that rejuvenates your face with volume.
Most patients will undergo a series of Sculptra Aesthetic treatments spread out over several months to attain great results. Best of all, these results tend to last somewhere between two and three years, surpassing the longevity of most other injectable treatments.
Chin & Cheek Augmentation
Patients who want to add proportion to their face may consider facial implants in either the chin or cheeks. Dr. Ereso uses small silicone implants that mimic your natural tissue for a realistic look and feel, and they are designed to last indefinitely.
Full cheeks are a sign of youth, so enhancing them with some extra padding can rejuvenate the face and give you the appearance of having killer cheekbones even though the bone structure itself has not changed. Chin implants add definition to the jawline, correcting what some may perceive to be a “weak” chin.
There is no denying that having full, pouty lips is in style right now, but not everyone is born with those characteristics naturally. To enhance the size and attractiveness of your lips, Dr. Ereso can use dermal fillers with hyaluronic acid such as JUVEDERM, Restylane and Perlane. There is no downtime after receiving these injections, and you should see the benefits of the filler remain in your lips for approximately six months, with some variation depending on the brand of filler used.
