In breast reduction surgery, the excess tissue – skin, breast tissue and fat – are removed to reduce the weight of the breasts and to lift the breasts into a more natural position. After breast reduction surgery, a woman will regain a sense of balance in her body. Often, the pain associated with enlarged breasts will be completely resolved allowing her to return to her previously active lifestyle.

In this procedure, a special type of liposuction cannula is introduced into the breast tissue via a small incision near the armpit. Using this technique, the abnormal breast tissue and fat is removed. Sometimes, there remains a small button of breast tissue which can either be removed via that same incision, or occasionally through an incision beneath the areola. A few men, those with a large amount of excess skin, may also require a secondary surgery at a later date to complete the correction. Overall, the procedure is easily tolerated and the results are superb.
If you are a man concerned about unwanted breast tissue, contact Dr. Brooks today to start feeling better about your appearance with this revolutionary procedure.

In addition to upper eyelid skin excess, the lower eyelids can develop ‘bags’. These too can be treated by the careful removal of a small amount of skin and either removing or repositioning the fat underneath. The lower eyelid is often tightened at the same time to complete the rejuvenation process.

A successful abdominoplasty will address many different components of the abdomen to provide for a pleasing aesthetic and functional result. The most common type of abdominal rejuvenation employed by Dr. Brooks involves four steps: removal of the excess skin and fat, tightening of the abdominal muscles, targeted liposuction and sculpting, and repositioning of the belly button. It is the combination of these four techniques which has proven to give his patients the most satisfaction.

Liposuction involves the use of small tubes or cannulas which are inserted into an area via a small incision. Suction is then applied and the fat is removed allowing the skin to redrape over the new contour. Liposuction, at one time revolutionary and controversial, is now a tried and true technique which is successful only if applied with proper patient selection and care.
Safety is the most important component of any surgical procedure, and liposuction is no different. All liposuction cases are done in a fully accredited outpatient surgical center or hospital with fully trained anesthesia providers. This allows for the highest level of quality and safety and at the same time your best aesthetic results.
Call Dr. Brooks today to schedule a time to discuss his safe and proven approach to liposuction.

Fortunately, Dr. Brooks and his team can release the sutures and remodel the skull to allow ample room for brain development and a normal head shape and appearance. In some instances, the correction can even be done via an endoscopic approach which leads to smaller scars and a more rapid recovery.

Repair of the cleft lip often takes place around three months of age. If logistically feasible for your family, a device known as NAM (naso-alveolar molding) will be used before surgery to align the lip and to lengthen the nose in preparation for surgery. Once surgery is complete, special nostril splints may be used to help hold the shape of the reconstructed nostril. Surgery usually results in an overnight stay for your baby, but sometimes can be done on an outpatient basis.
Repair of the cleft palate is usually done between months 6 and 9. The primary goal of cleft palate repair is to allow your child to speak normally. Other goals are to prevent food and liquid from exiting the nose, and to allow the ear to drain normally to prevent infection. When there is a cleft in the palate, the soft palate is unable to prevent sound from exiting via the nose leading to a ‘hypernasal’ speech pattern. When severe, this can be very frustrating for a child as he or she struggles to be understood. In addition, the escape of food or liquid from the nose can be embarrassing and poorly draining ears can lead to infection and hearing loss.
As you can see, repair of cleft lip and palate is highly specialized and complex and requires a multi-disciplinary team approach. Contact Dr. Brooks today to become ‘plugged-in’ to one of the two teams to ensure your child has the best possible care.
Each hemangioma is different and should be approached individually. 90 percent of these will ultimately regress spontaneously (50% by five years, 90% by nine years). The problem is they can cause psycho-social issues before they regress and they can leave abnormal skin and soft tissue when they do ultimately go away.
There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to these growths. For small hemangiomas in hidden areas, allowing the lesion to spontaneously resolve without intervention can be very appropriate. For more aggressive tumors in aesthetically compromising areas (cheek, nose, forehead etc.) early and proactive treatment with medicine or surgery may be warranted.
Contact Dr. Brooks today to determine the approach most appropriate for your child.
