Moreland Surgery Center offers a variety of plastic surgery procedures to help maintain and promote a positive self image. Our facility provides breast reconstructive procedures for women affected by breast cancer. We also provide services for some of the more common medically indicated procedures. Here is a brief overview of some of our more common procedures:
Breast cancer is very common, affecting one out of every nine women. Many times, mastectomy, or removal of the breast is indicated. Reconstruction of the breast may give a woman greater comfort in her body, and lessen the psychological impact of the loss of a breast.
There are many options for the woman seeking reconstruction of the breast. Implants are perhaps the simplest form of reconstruction, and will fill the volume lost in the mastectomy of an average breast; however may not have the most natural look for feel. Autologous tissue reconstruction uses tissue from another area of your body to recreate the breast mound. The tissue is usually taken from the abdomen or back. This can provide a more natural appearance and feel.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Overly large breasts can cause a number of physical and psychological problems including back, neck and shoulder pain, skin irritation beneath your breasts, grooving of the shoulders from your bra straps, and restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts. We can offer limited scar breast reductions for appropriate patients. The scars are not visible under clothing, including many low-cut tops and also many types of swimsuits. Breast-feeding may be possible using some surgical techniques, but can never be guaranteed. Very large breast may require the nipple to be relocated as a skin graft, which leaves it insensate. Most women are very satisfied after breast reduction surgery. Back pain that is caused by breast weight will often diminish or disappear.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Baggy, sagging eyelids can make a person seem older, or give them a tired appearance. Many people choose blepharoplasty to remove some of the excess fat and skin that accumulates around the eye with age. This can give the eyes a younger, fresher look. The scars are small and well hidden in most patients.
