Cosmetic Procedures for the Body (Body Contouring):
Cosmetic surgery can rejuvenate more than just the face, all areas of the body can be restored to their once tight, smooth, youthful appearance. As we age, go through the trauma of childbirth, or experience a large weight loss, especially after a Gastric Bypass, areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, and thighs can start to loose tone and droop. Excess skin hangs on the body, and no amount of diet or exercise can make any improvement.
An abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck), Circumferential Abdominoplasty (Body Lift), or Liposuction can address that loose skin, tightening the abdomen so clothes fit better, as do swimsuits. Once this excess tissue has been removed, patients are better able to maintain their new body through proper diet and exercise. Another problem area of the body can include unsightly varicose veins in the legs. Laser Sclerotherapy can safely put an end to these, improving both your appearance and your health. Cosmetic surgery procedures for the body give patients back their lost confidence and self-esteem.

Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for the Breast:
Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgery in the United States. One reason for this: breast implants are safer and more natural looking than ever before. Saline is tried and true for women who want round, firm breasts; while silicone gel implants provide patients with supple, organic looking breasts. Implants come in a variety of shapes and types, as well as various volumes, making endless combinations, so women can easily find the exact implant that looks best on their individual body.
Not all women are looking to increase their breast size, however. Many ladies have an excessive size breast, which can be heavy, painful, and eventually sag. A breast reduction is extremely effective at reducing a large breast by removing unnecessary tissue and skin – leaving a breast that is proportionate to a woman’s body and is much more comfortable to live with.
Your face is the first thing other people see, it should reflect who you are and how you feel. Sometimes though, our face can betray our spirit. Age, sun damage, illness, and weight loss can cause the skin of the face to become lax and at tissues begin to dissolve, giving the face an unhealthy look. Nothing can add more years to our appearance than a weathered, tired looking face.
The youthful face you once enjoyed can be restored, though. Modern cosmetic surgery can turn around fine lines, wrinkles, dry or dull skin, laugh lines, and sunken eyes. A Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift), Necklift, Lip Augmentation, Rhinoplasty (Nose Job), as well as a traditional Facelift can permanently improve the look of the face, nose, and lips. State-of-the-art surgical techniques give optimum results, put risks at a minimum, and make healing time as fast as possible.

Cosmetic Procedures for the Hair:
Thinning hair, bald spots, and total hair loss can result from medical conditions, certain medications, or even genetics. Often, the lotions, prescription medications, and temporary hair pieces that are available prove inconsistent or completely ineffective. Scalp reduction is a surgical procedure designed to remove portions of the affected portions of the scalp, then repositioning the healthy hair. Hair transplants actually use the body’s own harvested hair, which is then placed onto the scalp in tiny groups. In just a few months, hair will begin to grow on its own, looking completely natural.
Laser hair removal can smooth and remove unwanted hair from anyplace on the body: the face, arms, legs, back, or bikini area. More effective than tweezing, waxing, shaving, or electrolysis; laser hair removal safely, painlessly, and best of all – permanently, reduces or eliminates unsightly hair.
Cosmetic Laser Treatments:
The modern laser has brought a whole new, technologically advanced edge to cosmetic surgery. Treatments are fast, painless, and provide amazing results. There are a variety of treatments that utilize the laser beam, which produces a short burst of light-energy that can be targeted at many different areas of the body, such as the skin and veins.
Facial rejuvenation can be accomplished through a laser resurfacing procedure, or Ultralight Peel, eliminating the tired, dry, top layer of skin and stimulating natural collagen growth. Blood vessels of the face and legs can be unsightly, but using laser technology, these can be safely diminished. Stretch marks, scars, and even tattoos can be eradicated with a laser treatment. More unique is our Weight Loss Laser Therapy and Smoking Cessation Laser Therapy, both of which are extremely effective.
Not all cosmetic procedures are surgical. Non-invasive aesthetic procedures are rising in popularity every year as patients begin to understand how cost effective these quick fixes are; they have very little downtime and produce results that quickly take years off your appearance. In 2012, there was a 6% increase in non-invasive procedures, with over 13 million treatments performed in the United States alone. Most of the time the results are temporary, depending on the treatment, patients need a repeat treatment in between four and twelve months.
In the fight against wrinkles, there is no better weapon than Botox. Taking just about 15 minutes for the injections, Botox will have those frown lines and forehead creases fading away over the following three to four weeks. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse assist with fine lines and lost facial volume, providing excellent results, especially around the mouth. Skin tightening and smoothing can be accomplished with Sculptra and ReFirme. To replace the normal fatty tissue under the eyes or in the cheeks, which can deplete as we age, a fat transfer will use your body’s own materials for rejuvenation.
Dr. Chernoff and Associates supports all of our patient’s aesthetic goals and desires. When a gender transformation is under way, cosmetic surgery can play a huge role in feminizing the facial features, making a patient as attractive as possible in their new role. Non-surgical treatments include collagen lip augmentation, facial resurfacing, and Botox injections. Surgical procedures such as Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery), Rhinoplasty (Nose Job), or a Cervical Lift (Neck Lift) provide permanent results. Dr. Chernoff has a gender transformation advocate on staff to assist patients in their journey towards a new self.
