Form following function is at the heart of the plastic surgery offerings at Methodist McKinney Hospital. The plastic surgeons at Methodist McKinney perform both elective cosmetic plastic surgery procedures and non-elective plastic surgery procedures to correct for traumatic injury, birth defects or deformities created by developmental problems, tumors, infection or disease.
The plastic surgery doctors at Methodist McKinney Hospital offer blepharoplasty (surgery to restore or repair the eyelid and eyebrow), liposuction, facelift, otoplasty (removing cartilage in the ears to bring the auricle and pinna closer to the head), augmentation mammoplasty (breast enlargement), mastopexy (reconstructive surgery that lifts the breasts) and skin grafts. The breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty surgery can restore volume in the breast that was lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Blepharoplasty involves removing excess skin from the upper and lower eyelid and can provide a plastic surgery patient with a more youthful and rested look. A facelift is known technically as a rhytidectomy. A facelift is one of the only ways to reduce sagging, creases, wrinkles and excess fat from the face. After removing the excess fat and skin, the plastic surgeon will tighten the skin of the face by pulling it more tautly. The plastic surgeon will work to hide the stitches in an inconspicuous spot such as behind the ears. The plastic surgeons at Methodist McKinney Hospital also offer liposuction to shape parts of the body by removing excess fat deposits from a particular section of the body. This procedure is commonly known as lipo.
The plastic surgery specialists at Methodist McKinney Hospital recommend that plastic surgery only be performed by a trained professional and recommend that patients thoroughly research the method they desire before committing to scheduling a procedure. The plastic surgeons also recommend that patients only receive surgery from a board certified plastic surgeon. When it comes to plastic surgery procedures, it is important to realize that a cheaper procedure may be cheaper because the plastic surgeon is not board certified or that they are not experienced in the surgery procedure being offered. Remember as with many things in life, you get what you pay for. For more information about plastic surgery offerings at Methodist McKinney Hospital, visit our website.
