At Bridges to Beauty, Dr. Bridges offers a variety of cosmetic surgeries that can enhance and sculpt many areas of the body. Whether you are looking for a single procedure or a combination, Dr. Bridges looks forward to helping you customize your look and create harmony across your face or body.
Dr. Bridges works with great precision to enhance and rejuvenate the delicate contours of the face. Facial rejuvenation surgery is very personal, and Dr. Bridges takes good care to make sure that you get your desired results.
Ear surgery (otoplasty) adjusts and improves the shape, position, and proportions of the ears. This procedure can be used to enhance aesthetics or correct birth defects among children and adults. This is one of the few cosmetic surgeries that can be performed on children (and often is) to prevent a child from being ridiculed about their overly large or protruding ears.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) addresses laxity on the upper and lower eyelids that may be interfering with vision. Eyelid surgery can correct hooding above the eyes, reduce puffiness below the eyes, and smooth wrinkles around the eyes to create a brighter, renewed appearance. Bruising and swelling should subside after two weeks, but you can return to regular activities after ten days.
A facelift (rhytidectomy) repositions and removes sagging skin to restore a youthful appearance to the face. This surgery effectively reduces signs of aging in the face and neck, such as wrinkles, sagging skin, jowls, and nasolabial folds. Micro-fat injections are done to restore lost age-related central facial volume loss called deflation. Bruising and swelling should subside after several days to 10 days, and most patients can return to regular activities within two to four weeks.
Breast surgery is very popular for its ability to enhance feminine contours, and Dr. Bridges has a great deal of expertise in this area of plastic surgery. Breast surgery is individualized to suit your needs and provide optimal results.
Breast augmentation adds volume and projection to the bust using implants. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures and common among young women with naturally small breasts and women looking to restore their breasts after pregnancy or weight loss. After your procedure, it may take several months for your implants to settle; however, you can return to work within a few days and all regular activities within six weeks.
Breast lift surgery restores elevation and youthfulness to the breasts after pregnancy, weight loss, or the aging process has resulted in sagging. This procedure is commonly combined with breast augmentation (to increase fullness) or breast reduction (to resize overly large breasts). Breast lift surgery tightens the breasts but does not significantly alter the size of the breasts.
Breast reduction surgery reduces the weight and volume of the breasts by removing excess fat and breast tissue contributing to painful, overly large breasts. A breast reduction can significantly enhance the appearance of the breasts and restore physical comfort. Most women can return to regular activities after two weeks.
Body contouring procedures are ideal for addressing stubborn fat and excess skin across the body. Dr. Bridges pays close attention to detail to help bring out the best in your natural contours.
An arm lift (brachioplasty) reshapes the upper arm by removing excess fat and skin between the underarm and the elbow. This surgery not only reduces the circumference of the arm but does so in a way that creates a more toned appearance. Many patients can return to regular activities within two weeks.
A body lift is a body contouring procedure that removes excess skin and fat from various areas of the body. This procedure also tightens and repositions the underlying tissue to add tone to shapely and harmonious contours. Most patients are able to return to regular activities within three to six weeks.
Cellulaze™ uses laser technology to reduce fat and correct the appearance of cellulite by severing the connective bands that create dimples in the skin. Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive procedure that offers great results with less downtime. Most patients will see continual improvement in their skin’s smoothness over six months.
Liposuction uses suctioning technology to loosen and remove fat cells from the body. This is not a weight-loss procedure, but moderate amounts of fat are eliminated in such a way to enhance natural body contours. Liposuction is often included in a variety of body contouring procedures as the primary means of fat removal. Most patients can return to most regular activities and work within one to two weeks.
A Mommy Makeover is a body contouring surgery that combines multiple body contouring procedures to restore a woman’s body after the rigors of pregnancy. A Mommy Makeover often includes liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and breast augmentation. The Mommy Makeover is a popular procedure due to its highly customizable nature and ability to provide optimal body contouring results. Following your Mommy Makeover, you can return to normal activities within four to six weeks.
SmartLipo® is an advanced liposuction technology that utilizes power-assisted lipolysis, which effectively melts the fat before it is removed from the body. Most patients can return to regular activities after one week.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) tightens the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin while repairing separated rectus muscles. While a tummy tuck improves contours, it does not remove stretch marks (unless they are on the part of the skin that is resected) or prevent future weight gain. Tummy tuck recovery takes upwards of six weeks.
