Reflect who you are inside. See the person you can be
How we view ourselves can have a significant effect on our self-confidence. When you look in the mirror, are you happy with what your outward appearance says about you? If there is a part of your body or an aspect of your face that you would like to renew or redefine, Dr. McKeown performs a range of highly specialized cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures that can be personalized to help you achieve your desired goals.
Eyelid surgery is a very intricate procedure that requires extensive planning as well as knowledge of the eye itself. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids while tightening sagging muscle tissue. The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
The surgeon will make an incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid, or at the lash line or on the inside of the lower lid, depending on the type of procedure being done. After making this incision, excess skin and fat will be removed. During this process, they will also correct any drooping that may have occurred by tightening the muscles and skin.
A facelift is a surgical procedure that lifts, tightens, and restores the natural shape of the face. The procedure is often performed to remove excess skin and fat from the face and neck, as well as wrinkles and scars. A facelift can be performed on patients with loose skin and fat around the chin, jowls, or neck, or with deep midface wrinkles.
Breast surgeries are a common form of cosmetic procedure in which the patient’s breasts are enhanced to achieve their goals. Breast surgeries can involve sag reduction with a breast lift or enlargement with a breast augmentation with implants.
There are many different ways to approach breast surgeries, and the best way to get a sense of what’s right for your body will depend on your unique situation.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. The procedure involves creating small incisions in the skin, inserting a tube called a cannula, and removing excess adipose (fat) tissue through suction.
Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from many areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, lower back, buttocks, arms, calves, and ankles.
Earlobe repair is a surgical procedure in which the torn earlobe is reconstructed to restore its natural appearance. It involves removing the damaged skin from the earlobes, along with any cartilage that has been torn away, and then rejoining the damaged ends. The procedure can be performed in a physician’s office and lasts about 30 minutes.
Tummy tuck surgery is a procedure that reshapes the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall. The main purpose of this surgery is to improve the contours of the abdomen, which may have been distorted through pregnancy or weight fluctuations.
A tummy tuck is typically performed when a person has lost a significant amount of weight, but it can also be done for other reasons, such as correcting the appearance of prior abdominal surgery.
Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that can help restore a patient’s youthful appearance. Botox is derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into the skin, Botox can relax overactive muscles and smooth out fine skin creases like crow’s feet. It works by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, which causes muscle contraction. The injection site is chosen carefully to ensure that you get the best results.
Juvederm is a collection of hyaluronic-acid-based injectable fillers that offer a range of aesthetic benefits. Juvederm injectables can be used to fill in deep folds around the nose and mouth; enhance thin lips for a fuller look; and volumize the cheeks, chin, temples, and jawline.
The Juvederm treatment takes about 30 minutes and can be performed in an office setting. A special needle will be used to inject the filler into the targeted areas of your face.
Spider veins are small, red, and often raised. They can be found on the face, legs, and other areas of the body. Spider veins are caused by the dilation of tiny veins in the skin. This dilation can occur for many reasons, including genetics and medical conditions such as hypertension or diabetes.
Prominent spider veins can be addressed with sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a chemical solution into the affected area to shrink the vein. This procedure usually takes only a few minutes.
