Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Crane and Dr. Satterwhite are fully trained and experienced as plastic surgeons, and offer the full gamut of plastic and cosmetic procedures. Click here to be directed to Dr. Satterwhite’s cosmetic surgery website for a more extensive explanation of cosmetic operations.

Facial Procedures

Facial rejuvenation surgery involves cosmetic treatments to help “freshen” the face with the goal of creating a more youthful image. Dr. Crane and Dr. Satterwhite offer the following:

FACELIFT/NECKLIFT

Through well-concealed incisions around the ears and hairline, the skin and underlying facial tissues are tightened and re-shaped, obliterating deep wrinkles, softening the nasolabial folds, providing fuller cheeks, removing jowls, and tightening the neckline.

BLEPHAROPLASTY

This involves the removal of excess skin and fat around the eyes, with careful re-draping of soft tissue. Removal of bags, wrinkles, and prominent folds can dramatically freshen the face, and make you look “less tired.”

LIPOSUCTION

Particularly under the neck (submental), removing fat creates a sharper, more well-defined neck line.

FAT GRAFTING

The face deflates and loses volume with aging. To combat these effects, fat is taken from other parts of your body (usually during liposuction performed at the same time) and injected into areas of your face (such as the cheeks and lips) to add youthful volume and fullness.

INJECTABLES AND NON-SURGICAL TREATMENTS

Botulinim toxin (Botox and Dysport) are particularly effective in reducing wrinkles and signs of aging in the forehead, glabellar region (frown lines) and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Hyaluronic acid fillers (Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane) provide temporary volume to the cheeks and lips, and are effective in reducing fine wrinkles and blunting the nasolabial folds. Additional skin treatments are available such chemical peels, laser treatment, and dermabrasion to help correct dyschromia (discoloration) and to address fine wrinkles.

Body Procedures

Dr. Crane and Dr. Satterwhite offer surgical treatments for all aspects of the body. These include:

BREAST AUGMENTATION

This can be approached through a variety of incisions (around the nipple, under the breast, in the armpit) and with the use of silicone or saline implants. In the right patients, fat grafting can be effectively used to augment your breasts. In consultation, we can provide the pros and cons of each approach and implant type, and work with you to find the type of augmentation that fits your needs.

BRACHIOPLASTY

Removal of excess skin and fat from around the arms (especially if you’ve lost a lot of weight) creates a more sculpted appearance.

ABDOMINOPLASTY

Through a low abdominal incision, excess skin and fat are removed. Underlying tissue (fascia) can be sutured to further tighten the abdomen. Additional liposuction may be used for further contouring. Below are before and after pictures postop abdominoplasty performed by Dr. Satterwhite.

THIGH LIFTS

Using incisions inside the legs, excess skin and fat is removed to provide a more shapely appearance

BUTTOCK AND THIGH AUGMENTATION

Sculpting the buttocks and lateral thighs involves careful fat grafting to create a fuller, more aesthetically pleasing area. Below are four before and after photos 5 months postop Brazilian butt lift (fat transfer from abdomen to buttocks) performed by Dr. Satterwhite.

LIPOSUCTION/BODY SCULPTING/IMPLANTS

For the right patients, liposuction can be performed anywhere on the body to remove unwanted fat deposits. For our transmale patients, liposuction can be a very powerful adjunct in accentuating your masculinized chest after top surgery. Contouring can be accomplished with fat grafting or the placement of implants in areas of the body where you’d like more volume and shape.
