Body Plastic Surgery
Dr. Amy Ortega is a specialist in breast and body contouring, using her intensive plastic surgery experience to deliver aesthetic improvements to her patients’ figures. Dr. Ortega draws from the latest proven surgical techniques when performing fat grafting, liposuction, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, and other procedures.
Augmentation of the breasts in size and shape is a common procedure undergone by many women. Dr. Ortega uses saline, silicone gel and new ’gummy’ breast implants to add fullness and improve symmetry.
Breast lift elevates breasts that have lost fullness and begun to sag due to factors such as age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, and weight loss.
Overly large breasts can cause physical pain and emotional discomfort. Breast reduction removes excessive breast tissue, fat, and extra skin for smaller, lighter breasts.
Breast tissue that has been lost as a result of cancer may be replaced at the same time as a mastectomy or following treatment with either natural techniques or implants. Dr. Ortega expertly performs breast reconstruction to help women feel more confident with their appearance while appearing natural.
Women who have undergone breast augmentation in the past but are seeking a more natural look and feel or want to increase or decrease the size of their current breast implants may consider breast re-augmentation.
Sometimes women decide they would like their breast implants removed for a variety of reasons. Dr. Ortega is experienced in techniques that prevent a deflated appearance of the breasts after implant removal.
Male breast reduction is performed on men who have a feminine appearance to their chest because of factors such as gynecomastia, a condition that results in the development of excess breast tissue.
Brachioplasty, otherwise known as an arm lift, lifts and smoothes the skin of the upper arms while addressing concerns about fullness and sagging.
Restoring the contours of the body after weight loss is a specialty of Dr. Ortega’s. After substantial weight loss, the skin often forms large flaps due to a decrease in elasticity over a long period of time. Procedures that can enhance the body contours to reflect a patient’s healthier lifestyle include tummy tuck, total lower body lift, arm lift, thigh lift, breast lift, and even facelift.
Liposuction is a safe and popular procedure designed to refine the contours of the body where fat deposits have collected. Revision may also be performed to correct poor results of a previous liposuction procedure. Various areas of the body can be treated.
Loose skin around the thighs is trimmed and tightened to reduce sagging after weight changes or age have caused fullness and inelasticity.
Excess skin of the abdomen may be trimmed and the abdominal muscles can be tightened when a flatter, firmer waistline is desired.
