Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

Breast Augmentation: This surgical procedure is conducted to surgically increase the size and shape of the breasts. It’s typically performed for the following reasons:

  • * To improve body shape by modifying size with breast implants.
  • * Correction of lost volume in the breasts following pregnancy.
  • * To achieve improved breast symmetry.
  • * Reconstruction of the breasts after they’ve been surgically removed due to breast cancer.

You may be a candidate for breast augmentation at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery if you’re looking to enhance and improve the size and shape of your breasts and maintain a realistic expectation for the outcome. There are three varieties of breast implants available: silicone gel-filled implants, saline-filled implants and silicone shells filled with silicone gel solution. After deciding on an implant type, patients then choose which incision type shall be applied for their insertion: the options are usually through the armpit, through the breast crease or around the areola.

Laser Vien Removal – Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

Laser Vein Removal for Spider Veins or Varicose Veins: If you’re feeling self-conscious about wearing shorts or skirts because of visible “spider” or varicose veins on your legs, you are certainly not the only one. In fact, as many as fifty percent of women nationwide are affected at some point by this commonplace cosmetic issue. If you’d like to have your spider or varicose veins removed and restore a smoother and younger look for your legs, the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery is here to help. We perform safe and fairly painless techniques that get amazing results. It’s a procedure that can be performed for women of any age – some women develop spider veins in their 20s while others may not until much later. Some of the causes of spider veins on the legs include genetics, hormonal changes, pregnancy, significant weight gain, and jobs that entail long periods of standing.

Facelift – Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

Facelift: A remarkably effective procedure, a facelift substantially minimizes signs of aging like folds and deep wrinkles by the nose and around the lips, jowls and sagging neck skin. Performed at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, a facelift raises and tones the cheeks in an upward and backward direction. This adjustment minimizes the hanging, aged skin to result in a younger and more refreshed appearance. For some patients at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, a facelift can be performed with other procedures such as a forehead lift or rhinoplasty to optimize results. Potential risks associated with a facelift include infection, reaction to anesthesia, injury to nerves beneath the facial muscles or slow healing if the patient is a smoker.

Facelift surgery is performed at our fully accredited facilities in Geneva and Naperville or at a hospital. Local anesthetic or a general anesthetic is used for the patient’s comfort. A facelift typically takes several hours. Generally, your plastic surgeon applies an incision parallel to the hairline near the temples, which goes from the line right in front of the ear and continues along the earlobe. Your surgeon then separates skin tissue from fatty tissue. After the fatty tissue is trimmed and liposuctioned away from the neck and chin treatment areas, the muscles underneath are tightened and the skin is pulled back into position. The procedure concludes when your cosmetic surgeon closes up the incisions. This could be the right procedure for you if you’re looking to refresh your facial appearance – call the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery today and set an appointment to learn more!

Liposuction – Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

Liposuction: A well-known body sculpting technique that takes away excess fat from selected areas of the body like the mid-section, hips, buttocks, inner thighs, outer thighs, knees, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms. Liposuction at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery is intended to reduce extra fat that is resistant to conventional efforts like regular dieting and exercise. With excellent results that reshape the body, liposuction is a possible option for women with sensible objectives and expectations for cosmetic surgery, who maintain a relatively stable weight, and who have pockets of excess fat in particular areas of their body. Like potential candidates for any surgery, it’s also important to be in sound health and generally fair condition before undergoing liposuction.

Liposuction is performed at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery and – depending on which areas of the body are selected for liposuction – local anesthesia or general anesthesia is administered.

During standard liposuction at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, your surgeon will typically apply an incision at the selected area and then insert a tube through the layers of fat to help break them up. The vacuuming device is then used to suction out the fat.

Aging Procedures – Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery

In addition to these cosmetic surgical procedures, there are also a number of non-surgical treatment options we offer at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery. These effective solutions for signs of aging include:

Botox: Women who have lines on the forehead, between the eyes, around the eyes or frown lines surrounding the mouth are good candidates for this injectable treatment. The simple application, performed for outpatients at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, is delivered through a small needle that allows it to be applied with precision to very specific areas. Botox solution basically “freezes” facial muscles to minimize wrinkling.

Microdermabrasion: Performed at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery to reduce the appearance of skin surface hyperpigmentation, sun spots, creases and shallow acne scarring. Microdermabrasion refreshes the skin and makes the texture more even and smooth. Plus, removal of dead skin cells allows skin care products to penetrate deeper and function more effectively.
