Tummy Tuck

The mid-section is an area that many people struggle with throughout their lives–both men and women can find it difficult to achieve their aesthetic abdominal goals. There are a number of factors that can contribute to the mid-section’s ability to respond to diet and exercise, for example, women who have been through multiple pregnancies often find they have excess, sagging skin in the region and that their abdominal muscles are stretched out–neither of these issues can be corrected through proper diet and consistent exercise alone. Similarly, both men and women who have achieved a significant weight loss through bariatric surgery or diet and exercise in a short amount of time often are also left with excess, sagging skin. The Tummy Tuck is performed through an incision that runs horizontally along the lower abdominal region from hip to hip–excess skin is removed, abdominal muscles may be tightened, and the remaining skin is then closed to create a smoother, more toned appearance.

Sometimes the Tummy Tuck may be performed in combination with other body contouring procedures such as liposuction (for stubborn fat remaining in the area) or as part of a Mommy Makeover.

Breast Augmentation Minneapolis

The Breast Augmentation is achieved through the use of either Saline filled or Silicone implants. Women seek out the popular breast augmentation procedure because they feel their breasts are too small for their figure, they feel their breasts have lost volume as they’ve gotten older or after weightless, pregnancy or breastfeeding, or to correct breast asymmetry (where one breast is more than a cup size larger than the other breast).

There are a number of options to consider when going through with a breast augmentation procedure. The size and type of your breast implant, as well as the placement of the implant and the placement of the incision. Dr. Landis works with each patient on an individual level to determine the best procedure plan to help achieve the best results for each patient. If you are interested in discussing your breast augmentation options and to find out if a breast augmentation may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Landis today.

Eyelid Lift Minneapolis

Eyelid Lift is a procedure that is commonly performed to alleviate skin sagging, creases, and wrinkles in the eyelids. They say that the eyes are the windows into our souls, but when sagging skin and creases obstruct that window it can make us look run-down, tired, or older than we are or feel. The Eyelid Lift, also called Blepharoplasty, removes excess skin sagging and puffiness from the upper and/or lower eyelids to create a more youthful and fresh appearance. Some patients may only opt for rejuvenation of the upper eyelid or just the lower eyelid. In some cases, the Eyelid Lift may be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids, along with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as the Brow Lift or Botox.

Eyelid Lift surgery is not right for everyone. Ideal candidates should, among other things, be in good health with realistic expectations for the procedure. To learn more about the Eyelid Lift procedure and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. George Landis today. 

Eyelid Surgery Minneapolis

The Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. Common aesthetic complaints men and women have as they get older include: bags or puffiness under the eyes, skin sagging or wrinkles in the upper eyelid (in some cases they may be severed enough to impair vision), lines and creases. These common signs of aging that occur around the eyes can leave us feeling like we look constantly run-down and not at our most vibrant, and confident best. Ideal candidates for the Eyelid Surgery are in good mental and physical health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results.

If you are interested in seeing what results are possible through this procedure, we encourage you take a look through our online before and after eyelid surgery photo gallery. The Eyelid Surgery is performed through an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. Next, excess fat, muscle and skin is removed and the remaining skin closed to create a natural looking rejuvenation. If you are interested in learning more about this procedure and to find out if you may be a good eyelid surgery candidate, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Landis today.
