Shape & Tone
If diet and exercise aren’t creating the body contours you are expecting or hoping for, it may be time to consider a surgical procedure. Meant to help you present as the best you possible, plastic surgery can smooth, firm and tone many problem areas.
During a consultation with Dr. Manuel Gigena, FACS, he will evaluate your areas of concern, explain how each surgical procedure can reshape your figure and what the short- and long-term surgical results will be.
Excessive Sweating (Hyperhidrosis)
This common disorder, which includes more sweating than is needed to maintain regular body temperature, can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Treatment may include injections and surgical removal of sweat glands.
Firmer, smoother body contours can be created by transferring (or shifting) fat tissue from one area of the body to another.
A scar is an area of fibrous tissue that replaces normal skin after injury. While a natural part of the healing process, scars can make a person self-conscious. Scar revision minimizes a scar so it is more consistent with your skin tone and texture.
Skin Cancer Removal
Using special techniques to preserve your health and appearance, Dr. Gigena, FCS, can surgically remove cancerous growths and other skin lesions.
To create smoother contours ultrasonic waves are used to dissolve fat planted in problem ares. The ultrasonic waves are emitted from the end of a cannula that’s inserted through small incisions. Once the fat is liquefied, it is sucked out through the cannula.
