Facial Procedures

Dr. Calloway offers a wide variety of the latest facial rejuvenation procedures designed to eliminate signs of aging and skin damage.  Revolutionary new plastic surgery procedures and techniques are offered by Dr. Calloway as a result of significant advancements in technology and innovation. 

Facial Procedures

Face Lift – Facelifting procedures are designed to restore the natural soft tissue contours of the face by lifting drooping structures in the face to reconstruct the normal youthful anatomy.  Although originally developed as a surgery to remove wrinkles and loose skin (also known as rhytidectomy), the procedure has been refined to restore the deep soft tissues contours of the face to create a more youthful, rested, and refreshed appearance.
Neck Lift – A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that improves visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.   Although a necklift is often part of complete facelift, it is primarily used to correct localized drooping or heaviness of the chin and neck.  Unlike a facelift, however, the incisions are completely hidden behind the ears and under the chin.  During the neck lift surgery, Dr. Calloway uses a miniature video camera, known as an endoscope, to perform the surgery safely with more limited incisions.  Because of this 21st century technology, the procedure is often referred to as an Endo-neck lift or endoscopically assisted neck lift.
Brow Lift – A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, reduces the wrinkle lines that develop horizontally across the forehead, as well as those that occur on the bridge of the nose, between the eyes, improves frown lines, raises sagging brows, and places the eyebrows in an alert and youthful position.
Eyelid Surgery –  Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the eyelids.  Surgery can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, or both.  Whether a patient wants to improve their appearance or are experiencing functional problems with the eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the function and appearance of the area surrounding the eyes.
Otoplasty – Ear surgery – also known as otoplasty – can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ears. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
Rhinoplasty – This procedure enhances facial harmony and the proportions of the nose. It can also correct impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose. 

Breast Procedures

Dr. Calloway offers a wide variety of breast enhancement procedures to improve or restore natural beautiful breasts. 

Breast Procedures

Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

Breast Augmentation Surgery, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.  Surgical enhancement of breast shape, size, and appearance can be performed using a wide array of new style saline or cohesive silicone gel implants placed through a small hidden incision.  The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia in our  Accredited Outpatient Surgical Facility 

Breast Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

Breast Lift, also known as mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour.   A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness.  The surgery involves the lifting and contouring of the breasts with relocation of the nipple and areola to their ideal positions.   In some individuals, the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will also reduce this to its ideal size, shape and location on the breast mound.  A breast lift can rejuvenate one’s figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.  Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of the breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.  However, in some woman, they find that after a breast lift, they are wearing a smaller cup size.  For more significant changes in volume, breast augmentation or breast reduction can be combined with a breast lift to achieve the ideal size and shape.

Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Breast Reduction Surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size and shape that is proportionate to the body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.  Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems. In addition to self image issues, a patient may also experience physical pain and discomfort.  Furthermore, the weight of excess breast tissue can impair one’s ability to lead an active lifestyle. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having heavy, large pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.  As with breast lift surgery, Breast reduction surgery is also designed to lift and shape the breasts to their more youthful and perky appearance.

Fat Transfer Breast Enhancement

Fat Transfer Breast Enhancement or fat grafting to the breasts is a minimally invasive procedure which consists of two procedures performed together to enhance the size and shape of the breasts using the patient’s own fatty tissues.  The surgery is designed to remove and contour areas of localized fullness or fatty deposits, and use this tissue to create more beautiful contours and fullness to the breasts. 

Breast Implants

Breast Implants

Breast Implants, also known as breast prostheses, are used to surgically enhance a patient’s breasts to achieve a fuller, more symmetric, or more ideal breast size and shape.  A variety of new breast implants are available to allow Dr. Calloway to achieve the exact size and shape breasts that a patient desires.   Breast Implants are available in a variety of sizes and shapes to best match the specific and unique needs of individual patients.   In addition to the traditional round implants, new styles of shaped implants area now available that more closely mimics the shape and projection of natural breasts.  Dr. Calloway has extensive experience with all styles of breast implants and selects the ideal implants based on patient anatomy and desired appearance.  Dr. Calloway works with all major implant manufacturers including Mentor, Allergan and Sientra.  With all implants on the market at Dr. Calloway’s disposal, allows him  maximum flexibility in choosing the specific implants to match the individual patient’s needs.

Breast Implant removal

Breast Implant Removal, also known as explantation of implants, can be performed to remove breast implants.  Whether a woman decides she no longer wants her implants, or decides to change the size or shape of her breasts, the implants can be safely removed from the implant pockets.  The implants can then be replaced with a different size, style or shaped implant, or can be avoided altogether.  Once removed, the breast implant pocket will disappear with the healing process.  Because removing the implants will reduce the size and shape of the breasts, some woman who do not want replacement of the implants, may elect to restore a youthful shape with a Breast Lift.  If the patient’s goal is to remove the implants but maintain a fuller shape without implants, an ideal option is to consider Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation.

Body Procedures

Body Procedures

Liposculpture

Liposculpture
, also known as high definition liposuction, is a newer surgical procedure which slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improves the contours, curves and proportion of the body.  The procedure is also known as tumescent liposuction, suction lipectomy or suction lipoplasty and is usually performed using tumescent local anesthesia and mild sedation. 

Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty
, commonly known as a Tummy Tuck, is the repair and tightening of the abdominal wall with elimination of excess skin, fatty tissue and stretch marks, creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.  Most often associated with pregnancies, significant fluctuations of weight, and prior surgeries, even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.  Since a flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control, a tummy tuck is often necessary when these methods alone cannot achieve these goals.  The surgery is designed to restore and flatten the natural abdominal contours, and is often combined with other body contouring procedures such as high definition liposculpture.

Brazilian But Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift
or Buttock Augmentation
is a minimally invasive procedure designed to increase the fullness, roundness and projection of the buttocks.   The surgery consists of two procedures performed together to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks using the patient’s own fatty tissues.  The surgery is designed to remove and contour areas of localized fullness or fatty deposits of the torso and thighs, and use this tissue to create more beautiful contours and fullness of the buttocks.  In addition, the patient obtains improved contours of the waist, hips and thigh areas with enhancement of self-image and self confidence.  The surgery uses only tiny incisions less than 1/8th inch in size to harvest fatty tissues and transplant the fat cells to the breasts. 

Brazilian Butt Lift

Thigh Lift Surgery

Thigh Lift Surgery
 reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.  Commonly used for patients who have had significant weight loss, it can also be employed for patients with lesser amounts of skin excess or soft tissues asymmetries of the thighs.  Also, if fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved the goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to one’s overall body image, a surgical lift may be the best choice. 

Arm lift (Brachioplasty)

Arm Lift Surgery
,
also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the upper arms.  Arm lifts are perfect for the patient who wants to get rid of saggy skin and fatty tissues that become droopy on the arms as well as to tighten and smooth tissues of the upper back and armpit region. The surgery is designed to tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.  Over time, the supporting structures in the upper arm become loose and begin to droop away from the underarm region.  This can result in hanging skin and soft tissues, often referred to as a “bat-wing” deformity.  Not only is the excess skin and soft tissue removed with the surgery, the tissues are re-suspended and contoured to their natural youthful appearance.  The final result is a tight smooth arm, lifted and contoured upper back and tightened axilla (underarm or armpit).  The procedure may also include high definition liposculpture to further enhance the final contours.

Scar and Trauma Revisions

Scar and Trauma Revisions
are procedures designed to improve the appearance of aesthetically unappealing scars or deformities.  They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.  Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with the surrounding normal skin tone and texture.  The available options vary widely, and depend on the number, type and complexity of the deformities.
