Over time, you may have noticed that certain areas of your face have lost that once youthful look. The face may lose volume, have loosening of the skin, or develop wrinkles which were not present in earlier years.
Facial plastic surgery procedures such as rhinoplasty and chin augmentation allow surgeons to create more balance among a person’s facial features, while facelift, browlift, and eyelid surgery restore youth to specific areas of the face.
Breast surgery has become one of the more popular procedures for women to enhance their shape. Dr James Southwell-Keely will work closely with you throughout the breast surgery process to determine which breast size, shape, and procedure is right for you to achieve a beautiful natural-looking result.
There are many different breast procedures to help you achieve your desired result. They include:
Over time, some patients may notice fullness in the abdomen, back, thighs and other areas of the body. These areas of concern may show following weight gain or loss, pregnancy, hormonal fluctuations (such as menopause) and time.
For those who experience difficulty in attaining the desired body proportions, Dr James Southwell-Keely is able to enhance body contour, reduce and tighten excess fat and skin, and add volume where indicated. This can be achieved using procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), lower body lift, and fat grafting.
Plastic Surgery is the speciality, which is dedicated to improving or restoring the appearance and/or function of numerous areas of the body. The word “Plastic” is derived from the Greek word “Plastikos” meaning to mould or give shape. Plastic surgery can broadly be separated into two categories: Reconstructive surgery to restore the form and function that has been lost through accident, disease or birth defect, and Cosmetic Surgery.
