cosmetic procedures

Hopewell plastic surgeons want patients to know that they don’t have to keep hiding areas of their bodies that they think are ugly. This Halloween, instead of putting on scary masks and makeup, why not reverse some less desirable features with these cosmetic procedures.

Cosmetic procedures that can help:

Spider veins

Broken capillaries, varicose veins and spider veins can occur for a variety of reasons:

  • Genetics
  • Injury
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Long periods of standing or sitting

These veins can appear on your legs, face, hands and other parts of the body. Whatever the cause, they can look ugly and also cause discomfort. In the legs, these types of veins can result in aching or cramping. They also may leave you with a feeling of tiredness, heaviness or numbness in the legs.

We offer two methods for dealing with unwanted veins and vein damage. Sclerotherapy is a painless procedure that involves injecting a sclerosant into the veins you wish to eliminate. This causes them to shrink, close off and eventually disappear. It usually takes somewhere between two to five treatments to achieve the desired, long-lasting results. Other veins can be removed using Intense Pulse Light therapy.

Spots on the Skin

Age spots, sun spots, acne scars and tattoos are a few examples of things that can mar the appearance of your skin. We offer photo facials and a variety of laser treatments that can help remove or greatly minimize the appearance of these types of conditions.

Torn Ear Lobe

Whether it’s the result of a fad you now regret, ear lobe gauging or an accidental tear , we can repair torn ear lobes. Depending on the degree of damage or deformity, our expert cosmetic surgeons will reshape and repair your ear lobe. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and usually takes less than an hour to complete. In most cases, you can even re-pierce your ear six to eight weeks following the surgery.
