LIPOSUCTION

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS LEAD LIPOSUCTION MAINE PROCEDURES

If you’re considering liposuction to permanently remove areas of fat, recontour your body, and boost your self-esteem, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified liposuction surgeons in Maine.

Often, even with diet or exercise, your body can have unsightly bulges and fatty areas. This could be a matter of heredity, something that’s not in your control. If you’re concerned by diet-resistant fat deposits and are looking for a body contouring surgery that gives you the appearance that you want, liposuction is one of the most performed cosmetic surgery procedures today. As effective body sculpting, liposuction is most often applied to the belly, love handles, arms, neck, legs, and chin.

You’ll first discuss your liposuction options with your Plastic + Hand surgeon. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your health, the condition of your skin, and the fatty deposits to be removed. Your Plastic + Hand surgeon will then recommend the procedure that will offer the best results for your unique makeup.

It’s time to discover the results you’ll love. The first step begins here. Call us at 207-775-3446, or submit this request form, to schedule your consultation with our Patient Care Coordinator to determine whether liposuction is right for you.

TUMMY TUCK SURGERY (ABDOMINOPLASTY)

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS ARE THE MOST TRUSTED FOR TUMMY TUCK MAINE PROCEDURES

If you’re considering a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for either cosmetic appearance and/or to help with abdominal muscle repair, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified tummy tuck surgeons in Maine.

After pregnancy or after weight loss, or even aging, you may need excess skin removal, want to tighten loose skin, or you may be looking for a body contouring surgery that gives you the appearance that you want.

The first step is to discuss your tummy tuck options with your Plastic + Hand surgeon. Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your tummy tuck procedure options might include a mini tummy tuck (partial abdominoplasty) or full tummy tuck (standard abdominoplasty). Liposuction may also be recommended to improve the appearance of the flanks, love handles, or the central abdomen.

While there are many reasons to seek tummy tuck procedures (notably achieving a flat abdomen and regaining your self-confidence), our leading abdominoplasty surgeons in Portland, Maine, will work with you on realistic expectations prior to the surgery.

It’s time to discover the results you’ll love. The first step begins here. Call us at 207-775-3446, or submit this request form, to schedule your consultation with our Patient Care Coordinator to determine whether a tummy tuck is right for you.

NOSE SURGERY (RHINOPLASTY)

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS LEAD RHINOPLASTY MAINE PROCEDURES

If you’re considering nose surgery (rhinoplasty) for either cosmetic appearance or to help with breathing issues (or a combination of both), our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified rhinoplasty surgeons in Maine.

Whether you feel that your nose is too short, too long, too wide, too narrow, off-center, bumpy, or twisted, a reshaped nose can be highly effective in changing your appearance.

Most healthy people who are dissatisfied with either the appearance or function of their noses are candidates for nose surgery. Typically, rhinoplasty procedures can be performed following the completion of nasal development, usually after 15-16 years of age.

While there are many reasons to seek nose surgery (whether you’re unhappy with the nose you inherited, or an injury has changed its appearance), our leading rhinoplasty surgeons in Portland, Maine, will work closely with you to discuss your medical history, and your nose surgery expectations, and set a realistic goal for your rhinoplasty outcome using advanced computer-generated imagery.

It’s time to discover the results you’ll love. The first step begins here. Call us at 207-775-3446, or submit this request form, to schedule your consultation with our Patient Care Coordinator to determine whether rhinoplasty is right for you.

If you’re considering breast surgery for either cosmetic appearance or to help with medical issues, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified breast surgeons in Maine.

Our board-certified surgeons are the most trusted team for breast surgery across all procedures including:

  • Breast augmentation: If you’re considering cosmetic breast augmentation surgery, you might want your breasts to be more full, proportional to your body, or to reverse the effects of breastfeeding or aging. With the best breast augmentation surgeons in Portland, Maine, we can help you determine which type, and size, of breast implant is best for you.
  • Breast lift (mastopexy): This can reshape your breasts to give you the appearance that you want.
  • Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty): If your breast size is excessively large in proportion to your body size and you experience symptoms (i.e., back and neck pain, shoulder irritation from bra straps, rashes and infections, and impacted participation in various activities), breast reduction surgery is a functional procedure designed to alleviate these symptoms by removing excess breast tissue while reshaping and lifting breasts to be in better proportion with your body.
  • Reconstructive breast surgery: You may be a candidate for breast reconstruction after medical treatment.

While there are many reasons to seek breast surgery, we have the best breast surgeons in Portland, Maine, that will work with you on realistic expectations prior to the surgery.

FACELIFT AND NECK LIFT SURGERY

If you’re considering a facelift (rhytidectomy) or neck lift to tighten your skin, refresh your appearance, and boost your self-esteem, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified facelift and neck lift surgeons in Maine.

The first step is to discuss your options with your Plastic + Hand surgeon. Depending on the degree of change you’d like to see, your procedure options might include a traditional facelift (with or without a neck lift), the MACS Lift (Minimal Access Cranial Suspension), a mini-facelift procedure (with limited incisions), or a neck lift.

During this consultation, you will discuss specifically where you would like to see improvement (i.e., jowls, neckline, neck banding, eyelids) and whether fat that is lost with aging should be restored with structural fat grafting.

While there are many reasons to seek facelift and neck lift procedures (notably achieving a fresh, youthful appearance that you can enjoy for years), our leading facelift and neck lift surgeons in Portland, Maine, will work with you on realistic expectations prior to the surgery.

It’s time to discover the results you’ll love. The first step begins here. Call us at 207-775-3446, or submit this request form, to schedule your consultation with our Patient Care Coordinator to determine whether a facelift or neck lift is right for you.

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS LEAD EYELID SURGERY MAINE PROCEDURES

If you’re considering eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to restore your bright and alert-looking eyes, fix sagging lids that interfere with your vision, or minimize facial aging with dramatic, long-lasting results, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified eyelid surgeons in Maine.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both eyelids, as well as the surrounding area of your eyes. We use this procedure to correct:

  • Loose and sagging eyelids
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Fatty deposits on the lids
  • Bags under the eyes

While there are many reasons to seek eyelid surgery (notably achieving a fresh, youthful appearance that you can enjoy for years), our leading eyelid surgeons in Portland, Maine, will work with you on realistic expectations prior to the surgery.

Procedures include traditional upper and lower eyelid lifts, fat pad transposition, structural fat grafting, and surgical chemical peels.

POST-BARIATRIC SURGERY

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS LEAD POST-BARIATRIC MAINE PROCEDURES

If you’re considering body contouring surgery after bariatric surgery for excess skin removal, to tighten loose skin, or to remove excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified post-bariatric surgeons in Maine.

While bariatric surgery is covered by insurance, excess skin removal is only covered in certain areas of the body, and only if there are documented medical reasons (e.g., persistent rashes). However, plastic surgery after bariatric surgery may be essential for you to feel confident in your new body size.

Our board-certified surgeons are the most trusted team for post-bariatric surgery across all body contouring procedures including:

  • Arm lift: Corrects sagging of the upper arms
  • Breast lift: Corrects sagging, flattened breasts
  • Facelift and/or Neck Lift: Corrects sagging of the mid-face, jowls, and neck
  • Lower body lifts: Corrects sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs
  • Medial thigh lift: Corrects sagging of the inner thigh
  • Tummy tuck: Corrects apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen

While there are many reasons to seek body sculpting procedures (notably regaining your self-confidence in the new body you worked hard for), our leading post-bariatric surgeons in Portland, Maine, will work with you on realistic expectations prior to the surgery.

It’s time to discover the results you’ll love. The first step begins here. Call us at 207-775-3446, or submit this request form, to schedule your consultation with our Patient Care Coordinator to determine whether post-bariatric surgery is right for you.

RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY

OUR PLASTIC + HAND SURGEONS ARE THE MOST TRUSTED TEAM FOR RECONSTRUCTIVE PROCEDURES IN MAINE

If you’re considering reconstructive surgery, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified reconstructive surgeons in Maine. Not only have we successfully completed the most reconstructive procedures in the region, but our team is also the only plastic surgery team trusted by Maine Medical Center, Mercy Hospital, and Southern Maine Medical Center.

Our board-certified surgeons are the most trusted team for reconstructive surgery across all procedures including:

  • Reconstructive breast surgery: If you’re considering breast reconstructive surgery after medical treatment, our Plastic + Hand team has the most qualified breast reconstruction surgeons in Maine. For more than 35 years, Plastic + Hand surgeons have provided reconstructive care for women with breast cancer. Typically, breast reconstruction occurs during or soon after a mastectomy (or lumpectomy). However, it can also be done months, or even years, afterwards. What’s important is that whenever it happens, it happens because you are ready.
  • Skin cancer surgery: We take a comprehensive approach to the removal and surgical treatment of cancerous and precancerous skin lesions at Plastic + Hand. After your skin cancer is removed by one of our plastic surgeons, the entire surgical margin is immediately examined on-site by our board-certified pathologist using CCPDMA technique (Complete Circumferential Peripheral and Deep Margin Assessment). Once clear margins are confirmed, the skin cancer site is immediately reconstructed by the plastic surgeon. If a flap or a skin graft is required for closure, our surgeons perform the closure at the same time.
  • Pediatric surgery: Sometimes plastic surgery is needed to restore mobility, function, and appearance to a child affected by a condition or injury. If your child needs pediatric reconstructive surgery, rest assured that Plastic + Hand surgeons will take the best care. Not only are we surgeons, but we are also parents who understand how frightened a child may be.

With over 40 years of experience, Plastic + Hand surgeons work with multi-disciplinary teams to treat the following conditions:

  • Cleft lip
  • Cleft palate
  • Birth marks
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Ear deformities
  • Tumors
  • Burns

  • Malformations in the face or skull
