Breast Lift

A woman’s breasts help define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size, and appearance, breasts further help to define her individualism. Therefore, changes to the breasts can be dissatisfying and make women feel as if they are losing some of their femininity and youthful vitality. Like other areas of the body, the breasts undergo changes in response to factors such as genetics, the aging process, pregnancy and breast feeding, weight gain or loss, and hormonal fluctuations. Breasts that were once firm and shapely often begin to sag and droop giving them a loose or heavy appearance. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can help restore a firmer, shapelier breast, which will improve body contours and give the breasts a perky, youthful appearance.

Lower Facelift

There are several different types of facelift—each specialized to treat different regions of the face. For example, the lower facelift is usually performed to rejuvenate the lower portion of the face. Age-related changes in the upper and middle region of the face are usually corrected with a forehead lift and mid facelift, respectively. During a lower facelift, the underlying connective and muscle tissues known as the SMAS are lifted, facial skin is tightened, and excess skin is removed. It is important to realize that a lower facelift cannot correct signs of aging in the forehead or around your eyes, nor can it address fine lines or uneven skin tone and texture. Dr. Gabriel will help you determine which procedure is best for you, and whether an additional procedure such as eyelid surgery or skin resurfacing would produce more global facial rejuvenation.


Often, localized fat deposits may develop in various regions of the body. These regions usually persist in spite of proper diet and exercise, which contributes to the disproportionate appearance of the figure. Liposuction works by removing excess fat tissue, which reshapes body contours and creates a slimmer appearance. Liposuction can be performed alone, but can also be performed with other procedures such as the tummy tuck. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite or obesity. Individuals who consider liposuction should be healthy and relatively fit, have firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone, and be within 30% of their ideal weight.

Botox Injections

With over 4 million procedures performed in 2006, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure performed. Used to treat facial lines and wrinkles such as forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines around the neck, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the registered product name for Botulinum toxin, Type A. Botulinum toxin is produced by a bacterium known as “clostridium botulinum”, and is normally responsible for causing the bacterial infection known as botulism. However, in small doses, botulinum toxin can be used safely to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. In addition, botulinum toxin has been shown to be an effective method for treating other conditions, such as migraines, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms, among others. With little downtime and almost immediate results, BOTOX® Cosmetic can help you restore a smoother, more youthful appearance to the face.
