Our Plastic Surgery Procedures

Below are some of the plastic surgery procedures that we offer at Universal Plastic Surgery:

It is particularly beneficial for individuals who already have well-developed abdominal muscles but desire more visible “six-pack” abs.

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area while tightening the abdominal muscles, resulting in a flatter and firmer abdomen.

Arm lift, also known as brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to remove excess skin and fat in the upper arms, improving their appearance and firmness. During the surgery, an incision is made on the inner or back part of the arm to remove excess tissue and achieve more contoured and toned arms.

Correct droopy eyelids, remove excess skin, and reduce under-eye bags for a more youthful and rejuvenated look.

A mini lipectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that targets excess localized fat deposits in specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms, to improve body contour and achieve a slimmer appearance. This procedure involves making small incisions to remove the excess fat using liposuction techniques.

Otoplasty, commonly referred to as ear surgery, is a surgical procedure that aims to reshape and reposition the ears. It is typically performed to correct prominent or protruding ears, correct ear deformities, or resize and reshape the ears to improve their appearance and enhance facial harmony.
