Breast reconstruction can be a great relief for our patients in Mobile, Alabama who have undergone breast removal or distortion due to breast cancer treatment or other disease. Due to new surgical techniques our surgeons have the ability to create reconstructions that look and feel like natural breasts.
Breast reconstruction at Mobile Plastic Surgery is typically performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia. There are many different techniques: including tissue expanders, implants, and flaps (your own tissue). Thankfully the procedure has no known effect on the recurrence of cancer, and breast reconstruction can often be performed at the same time as a mastectomy or at any time there after. If an unfortunate relapse should occur and your oncologist should find that cancer has returned, your reconstruction should not pose any interference with either chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Contact us in Mobile today for more information or to schedule a consultation.

Have you been asked lately if you’re tired or feeling down? The answer could be your forehead and brow! A forehead lift or brow lift can rejuvenate the entire face. By elevating the brows back to their natural position a bright, more rested look is achieved.
Depending on the patient’s needs a minimally invasive or endoscopic forehead lift may be used. Here we use small incisions in the hair and a camera device to perform the surgery. The result? Brows can be lifted and the frown muscles relaxed through these incisions with minimal downtime. Generally done on an outpatient basis, a forehead or brow lift can be a minor procedure that achieves maximal results.

Dark leg veins can be an unsightly blemish and may make you feel self-conscious about showing some skin. Spider veins are often hereditary and more common in women than in men. Caused by weak vascular walls and poor circulation, dark leg veins can be treated at our Mobile, AL practice leaving you blemish free!
During a treatment session pulses of intensive laser light are directed into the smaller veins. The treatment works by heating the vein and destroying it so that it can be reabsorbed by the body and processed as waste. Only a slight tingling sensation can be felt during the procedure so there is no need for any anesthesia. Several treatments are usually necessary for the vein to disappear, and these treatments should be 4-6 weeks apart for maximum effectiveness. Patients who undergo Laser Vein Therapy report amazing results! Don’t wait to start this incredible treatment, contact us today to get started.
