Cosmetic Surgery of the Breast

  • Breast augmentation, also known as breast enhancement surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure that is used to enhance the appearance of the breasts by reshaping and enlarging them with the insertion of a breast implant. Dr. Williams can also use breast augmentation to correct asymmetrical breasts or in conjunction with a breast lift procedure to help those whose breasts have started to sag or droop.

    Breast implants used in breast enlargement can be saline or silicone, teardrop or round, smooth or textured, and can be placed either above or below the pectoral muscle. Since there are so many options for breast augmentation, Dr. Williams believes it is important to thoroughly inform his patients about all of these options during consultation so that they can achieve optimal breast augmentation results. During this consultation, Dr. Williams will help his patients decide which type of implants to receive, what size breast implant will best fit their body, and how those implants should be placed.

Cosmetic Surgery of the Face

  • Chemical peels are non-invasive skin treatments used to smooth and even skin texture and tone. Using safe chemical solutions that promote exfoliation and increase collagen production, they can address many skin surface conditions, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, rough or scaly patches of skin, and scars. A chemical peel can be performed as a stand-alone treatment for patients wishing to revitalize their facial skin with minimal downtime, or during or after other facial plastic surgery procedures to enhance overall results. There are many different types of chemical peels, and the strength of a chemical peel can be adjusted to suit each patient’s individual skin conditions, medical requirements, and aesthetic goals.

Cosmetic Surgery of the Body

  • Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat and excess skin of the upper arm to give the area a more contoured and shapely appearance. Although many patients with excess fat on their upper arms may only need liposuction to obtain desired results, those who have experienced significant fluctuations in weight and have noticeably sagging skin may require surgical excision to re-sculpt their arm and produce desirable results. An arm lift is frequently performed in combination with other post-bariatric surgeries, such as a breast lift, tummy tuck, thigh lift, or liposuction.  Dr. Williams utilizes specific techniques on his brachioplasty patients so that the surgery scar is well-hidden under the patient’s arm.
