Plastic Surgery Procedures
When you don't feel you look your best, many aspects of your life can be inadvertently affected. Low levels of confidence and self-esteem can hinder your work, relationships and motivation. We offer several techniques to enhance your natural features through surgical, laser and injection treatments.
Some of the basic procedures that we offer include cheek implants to balance facial features and create a more prominent look to cheekbones; chin surgery for the enhancement or reduction of the bone; ear pinning (otoplasty) to reduce the appearance of protruding ears; and nose surgery (rhinoplasty) which can provide many benefits in changing the size and shape, including alleviating deviations and breathing difficulties. We can also increase the fullness of lips through lip enhancement and soft tissue augmentation.
Facelifts (rhytidectomy) are common surgical procedures that improve visible signs of aging. We are able to address issues such as sagging skin; deep lines, creases and wrinkles; as well as loss of muscle tone. For those who may want to minimize the amount of lift, we offer forehead lifts, also known as brow lifts. This procedure reduces lines that appear on the forehead and high bridge of the nose. Eyelid surgery is not uncommon when accompanying a facelift to eliminate loose or sagging skin, or excess fatty deposits that increase puffiness around the eye. It is important to Dr. Nesmith and our staff that you receive the treatment that best fits your expected outcome, so ask about the combination of techniques for optimal results.
Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center uses the most advanced technology to help you get the body you’ve always wanted or return you to the body you had prior to pregnancy or significant changes in weight.
The majority of body contouring procedures are aimed at eliminating loose or sagging skin that diet and exercise are unable to control, resulting in firmer, tighter skin that is smooth and youthful in appearance.
Your entire body - head to toe - is taken into consideration through the procedures we provide. A body sculpting or body lift procedure removes excess skin from various places on your body to improve your natural contour and body proportions. With upper arm lifts (brachioplasty), loose, sagging skin is eliminated and you can get back to wearing tank tops and sleeveless dresses. Tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) can give you a firmer abdominal profile when exercise alone is not enough. If you have localized fat deposits, liposuction (lipoplasty) can remove the fat and reshape the areas. Liposuction can be performed on your thighs, hips, abdomen, waist, buttocks, back, chest, cheeks, chin and neck.
We also offer thigh lifts to give you the lower body you most desire. Thigh lifts involve the removal of excess skin and fat for smoother, smaller thighs.
We perform many types of breast surgery depending on a patient’s needs. Breast augmentation surgery (mammoplasty) typically uses breast implants to increase the size of your breast or restore volume lost after pregnancy or weight loss. We will discuss your desired results and lifestyle to help determine what will look best for you.
Breast implants can also be used in breast reconstruction following a mastectomy, to help women feel more natural and gain back their confidence.
Breast lifts are also an option for women who experience sagging of the skin and tissue but do not require an increase or decrease in breast size, leading to firmer and higher sitting breasts. We also offer breast reduction procedures to women who would like to decrease the size of their breasts, most commonly for health reasons such as neck, back and shoulder pain or if their breasts limit physical activity.
Women who have previously received breast implants, but are not satisfied with the results of the procedure, should contact Dr. Nesmith to decide whether sizing, placement, type of implant or another issue is the source of your dissatisfaction in order to prepare for a breast revision procedure.
Not all appearance enhancing procedures require surgery. At Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center, we provide a number of non-surgical injections and treatments for our patients, including Botox cosmetic injections, laser techniques and Juvéderm XC injections.
Botox cosmetic, which is a form of botulinum toxin, is an injectable substance that helps smooths fine lines and wrinkles, most commonly on the forehead and around the eyes. There are health benefits to Botox cosmetic as well, as patients can benefit from the relief of migraines, muscle spasms and excessive sweating after receiving injections.
We also offer laser techniques to alleviate lines and wrinkles as an alternative to a facelift. Laser resurfacing techniques smooth the skin and can be concentrated on one area or used to smooth the entire face. Laser treatments can also diminish sun spots and overly pigmented skin, as well as acne scars and age spots.
Juvéderm XC is a gel consisting of hyaluronic acid which can be found naturally in your skin. This substance helps increase volume and hydration to injected areas, which instantly smooths out even the most severe lines and wrinkles on the face. Patients most often receive Juvéderm XC injections around their nose and mouth for natural looking results that can last up to a year with optimal treatment.
Juvéderm Voluma XC is also now available at Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center in Gainesville. Voluma XC is the first and only FDA approved injectable gel for midface enhancement, adding volume and preventing sagging skin in the cheek area, resulting in a subtle lift, Talk with Dr. Nesmith about the benefits of non-surgical treatments for a younger, healthier appearance.
Procedures for Men
Plastic and cosmetic proceduresfor men are becoming more advanced and we are seeing more male patients electing to receive treatments. Dr. Nesmith can help you achieve a number of goals through both surgical and non-surgical treatments. We offer facial treatments to help smooth wrinkles, facial surgery procedures for a more defined cheekbone, jaw line or distinguished nose, and gynecomastia surgery for overdeveloped breasts.
Rhinoplasty is one of the most common male procedures we perform at our surgery center in Gainesville. This surgical procedure can help define your nose or reshape and diminish the appearance of your nose in proportion with your other features. Many men elect to undergo rhinoplasty in order to alleviate health concerns such as impaired breathing. Dr. Nesmith can address these issues by changing the size, shape and width of the nose, as well as correcting asymmetry and deviation.
Male breast reduction has become a more popular procedure as gynecomastia becomes better understood. Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the swelling of breast tissue in men and boys, and it can cause discomfort and pain, as well as being the cause of a social stigma. Liposuction is another common procedure that we offer to men who are relatively active but have trouble eliminating fat deposits in certain areas of their bodies. Liposuction is not an answer to a beer gut or achieving a healthy weight, and shouldn’t be used in place of exercie and a healthy diet, but it can help sculpt your body for a sleek and contoured shape.
