Dr. Redstone has extensive experience in breast surgery and will work with you to help you achieve your desired goal – one that enhances your look and your lifestyle.
Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed in plastic surgery today; it's important to choose a surgeon that understands your goals and your desired look. Shape, size, and implant type are among the many issues to consider, and Dr. Redstone can help you make the choices that are right for you.
Breast reduction surgery has one of the highest rates of satisfaction in plastic surgery, as patients often report relief from the discomfort of disproportionately large breasts. Breast reduction can allow you to achieve a more proportional look and to feel more comfortable and live a more active lifestyle. Lifting and reshaping of the breast tissue is performed at the same time as a breast reduction in order to achieve a beautiful, natural look.
Sagging of the breasts, or ptosis, can occur for several reasons – childbearing, weight loss, and aging – and a breast lift can restore a full, natural, youthful look. This is done by lifting and reshaping the existing breast tissue into its original position, and it can be combined with the placement of a breast implant if there has been significant loss of breast tissue, or if you desire a fuller look.
Dr. Redstone has made breast reconstruction the focus of his practice, and has extensive experience in all types of breast reconstruction, including DIEP flap microsurgery. Working with you and your breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Redstone will help you choose the type of reconstruction that is best for you, and will follow you through all stages of that reconstruction.
There are many reconstructive options after mastectomy or lumpectomy, from expander/implant reconstruction to methods that use your own tissue to create a new breast via microvascular surgery.
Whether you are newly diagnosed with breast cancer, or you are looking for revisional surgery years after your initial reconstruction, please call our office to discuss your options – we are here to help.
Dr. Redstone is one of a small number of surgeons specializing in a no-implant breast reconstruction option called DIEP (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator) flap reconstruction. or call our office to get answers to your specific questions.
Redstone MD also offers the full range of injectables, as well as skin peels, laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion to help improve the texture and appearance of your skin. Skin peels and microdermabrasion, along with lower-intensity laser treatments, can be done in-office and have short recovery times. The more powerful Co2 laser resurfacing is a deeper treatment and requires a few days of recovery time, but it yields impressive and longer lasting results.
Rhinoplasty is perhaps the most elegant, technical and artistic operation in all of plastic surgery. It may be performed as "open" or "closed." Open rhinoplasty involves making a small incision below the tip of the nose to allow better visualization of the structures of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty keeps all incisions inside the nose, leaving no visible scars. Advanced training with masters in both techniques allows Dr. Redstone to assess each patient and offer the technique that will maximize the benefit for each patient.
Aging around the eye can lead to a persistently tired or sad appearance. Procedures increasing the youthful appearance of the eye can lead to livelier, happier appearance; many patients comment that they looked rested and refreshed. Dr. Redstone's aesthetic ideal is to return you to a more youthful version of yourself, and to avoid a standardized or over-operated look.
Injectables can be used to reduce wrinkles at the corners of the eyes (crow's feet) to fill or relax frown lines between the eyes, and to fill tear trough depressions. Botox® Cosmetic can also be used to create a mild brow lift. Please see Injectables section for further details.
Blepharoplasty (Eye Lift)
The eyes are the first place people look, and sagging eyelids can convey a tired or sad impression that does not reflect the real you. The delicate anatomy of the eyelid requires special attention; Dr. Redstone's experience with reconstruction of complex eyelid injuries and with many types of eyelid disease, in addition to his cosmetic eye lift experience, allows him to tailor the optimal solution for your eyes.
A drop in the brow can lead to an unintentionally angry, stern or overly masculine appearance. Returning the brow to its natural position above the bony rim of the eye can open the whole face, restoring a bright and lively appearance. Dr. Redstone performs both open and closed (endoscopic) brow lifts. For the right candidate, an endoscopic approach allows smaller incisions; either approach can produce excellent results.
There are many ways to improve the tone, texture and overall youthful appearance of the face. Treatments include laser resurfacing, injectable fillers, and neck and/or facelift (rhytidectomy). All treatments start with a thorough evaluation, including skin quality, positioning of facial fat, muscles and underlying bony structure. After careful analysis of these features, Dr. Redstone can formulate a treatment program specifically for you. Targeting only the desired areas allows you to achieve a bright, natural, youthful appearance.
If you are concered about areas of sagging skin, there are many options for treatment on any area of the body, including liposuction, abdominoplasty, lower body lift, thigh lift, breast lift, arm lift and many others.
If you are concerned about areas of unwanted fat, then liposuction may be a solution for you. Liposuction can be performed as an outpatient procedure; small incisions are made in the problem area, through which the unwanted fat is removed with a flexible wand (canula). Liposuction can be combined with other procedures to optimize your results; Dr. Redstone can help you choose the combination that’s right for you.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
A well-sculpted abdomen is one of the most beautiful parts of the human body. Changes in the muscles and skin of the abdomen wall, whether from childbearing, weight loss or natural aging, can often be improved with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). Dr. Redstone's goal is to restore a toned, athletic abdomen and avoid the over-stretched, unnatural look. Dr. Redstone’s attention to detail has led to his technique for the “hidden” umbilicoplasty during the tummy tuck: creating a small, aesthetically pleasing belly button with minimal scarring.
