Plastic Surgery in Minden

Board certified plastic surgeon in Minden, Nevada offers cosmetic surgery. Procedures include breast reconstruction, eyelid surgery, liposuction and more.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to breast cancer or other condition. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self confidence and quality of life.

Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy. If only one breast is affected, it alone may be reconstructed. In addition, a breast lift, breast reduction or breast augmentation may be recommended for the opposite breast to improve symmetry of the size and position of both breasts. Upon a consultation with Dr. Gabriel, he will be able to determine which procedure will be best for you.

Eyelid Surgery

As with any surgical procedure after your eyelid surgery procedure, you will likely experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising which can be alleviated with cold compresses and pain medication. Non-absorbable sutures are typically removed in five to seven days, and you will begin to notice an improvement in the bruising around your eyes in seven to ten days. Although you will feel well enough to return to work in approximately a week, you should continue to avoid strenuous activity such as heavy lifting or exercise for at least two weeks following the procedure.

Liposuction

Liposuction Technique

Dr. Gabriel will insert the liposuction cannula into the fat layer beneath your skin. Using a forward and backward motion, the surgeon will use the cannula to loosen and break apart the fat tissue in the area. A suction device, such as a surgical vacuum that has been attached to the opposite end of the cannula, is used to remove the fat. In some instances, the fat may be removed manually using a syringe that has been attached to the cannula. Following the procedure, the incisions will likely be closed with stitches, although some incisions are so small that they can heal without stitches.
