BREAST & BODY
Liposuction is a safe procedure that can benefit any adult who wishes to eliminate unwanted, excess fat. As technology has advanced, plastic surgeons have been able to make improvements to an already safe and effective procedure. Men and women alike can benefit greatly from liposuction with a skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Floyd Herman prides himself in being able to take on this procedure on any part of the body, even the face.
Some of the common areas in which liposuction can be done include:
- Love handles
Making tiny incisions in the skin, your surgeon uses specialized tools to gently loosen the fat beneath the skin before the actual liposuction procedure. The loosened fat can then be suctioned out through a cannula, which is a small hollow tube like a straw. Many surgeons and patients alike view liposuction as more of a sculpting procedure. This is because the reduction of fat in specified areas typically leads to better overall proportions and better contours.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that may be performed on its own, or in combination with another procedure, such as a tummy tuck. Where liposuction reduces the fat that lies under the skin, the tummy tuck procedure will remove excess skin that may not tighten back to its normal state on its own. During your consultation with Floyd Herman, MD, an assessment of the skin will help in making the determination if liposuction alone will produce the desired effect. Being a Board Certified plastic surgeon, Floyd Herman, MD is armed with both the academic and technical expertise and experience to help patients accomplish their desired outcome from liposuction surgery.

After the method, individuals will probably encounter certainty and be content with their size once more.

Fat injections use fat cells harvested from other areas of the body. Floyd Herman, MD refines the fat before injecting it into specific areas of the face. It can be used in areas such as the eyes, temples, cheeks, and nasolabial folds to add much-needed volume for a more youthful appearance. It can be done in conjunction with other surgical treatments including facelifts and neck lifts.
Most fat is removed from areas of the body such as the abdomen, hip or thigh where patients may have excess fat cells and may have considered liposuction. The fat is removed with a syringe and then redistributed to areas of the face or other parts of the body.
Fat injections are an excellent alternative to dermal fillers and provide more long-term results. The best candidates for fat injections (also known as fat grafting) are those who are experiencing areas of lost volume in the face. These patients may have undergone dermal fillers or collagen stimulators and been unhappy with the short-term results they provide. Patients who want a more permanent treatment may be deemed an appropriate candidate for treatments such as this.

Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition of enlarged or overdeveloped breasts in men that may occur at any age. The male breast tissue swells due to increased levels of estrogen, which are female hormones, or reduced levels of testosterone, which are male hormones. Gynecomastia usually resolves itself as levels of hormones return to normal. In other cases, surgery, in which we flatten and enhance the chest contour, would be required to reduce breast size in men. Surgery can be done in several methods such as liposuction, ultrasonic, and direct excision. Gynecomastia can be a cause of emotional discomfort and have negative effects on self-confidence. With surgery, Dr. Floyd Herman’s patients have been extremely grateful for the results they’ve seen.

Breast Lift procedures are also known as Mastopexy. Floyd Herman, MD in his years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery has seen many patients who are more concerned about the “firmness” of their breasts rather than its size. While patients have the correct breast size, their breasts may suffer from sagging. Possible reasons for such sagging include aging, weight loss or pregnancy. Floyd Herman, MD diagnoses such patients as ideal candidates for breast lifts.
During the mastopexy or breast lift procedure, Floyd Herman, MD removes the excess skin and lifts the breast. Once the breast has been lifted, he nimbly re-drapes the remaining skin. The final result is a firmer, fuller and attractive breast. In addition to this, Floyd Herman, MD uses his artistic eye to position the nipple in a more attractive manner. This adds to the youthful appearance of the breast.
Floyd Herman, MD also provides his patients with the options of having a breast lift and augmentation simultaneously. If patients opt for this, breast implants are inserted during the mastopexy.
Floyd Herman, MD firmly believes that the success of his practice lies in helping his patients achieve their aesthetic dreams in an attractive yet realistic manner. Visit Floyd Herman, MD today to find out how you can boost your self-esteem with a simple aesthetic fix.
