  • I Look Well-Rested After My Facelift

    Arleen has worked hard to keep her body in very good shape, but as she aged, she knew the way she felt didn’t match the appearance of her body. The stress from an emotional family crisis had aged her and made her look tired beyond her years. Arleen looked into facial rejuvenation procedures including facelifts and blepharoplasty. 

    “Aesthetic plastic surgery is a great fix for the types of issues I was facing, because it can give us the appearance that matches how we perceive ourselves mentally and emotionally,” explained Arleen. 

  • Carmela's Experience Undergoing A Breast Asymmetry Correction Procedure

    Carmela lived with breast asymmetry (defined as a difference of form, position, or volume of the breast) for years. She wasn’t happy about it and wanted to correct it. Dr. Tracy Pfeifer was recommended to her through casual conversation with a friend who’d already undergone the procedure.  

    “I researched her online, looked up her credentials, and before and after photos. I knew then that Dr. Pfeifer was the right fit for me,” explained Carmela.  

  • Ellen’s Experience Undergoing Upper Arm and Thigh Lift Procedures

    An upper arm lift also known as a brachioplasty, reshapes the upper arm to tighten loose skin and remove fat that often creates a “bat wing” appearance under the arm. A thigh lift also known as thighplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin and fat from either the inner or outer thighs. 

  • Liposuction: Diet and Exercise-Resistant Fat

    Carol Ann had liposuction on both her abdomen and her thighs. She had a small pocket of fat around her abdomen that would not respond to healthy eating or exercise. She decided to have liposuction on her stomach, as well as her thighs. Carol Ann's plastic surgeon told her the liposuction on her stomach would leave her with a good result because her muscles were very tight. 

  • Karen's Breast Cancer Reconstruction

    After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, Karen had a lumpectomy. As a result, she decided to have both a breast reduction and reconstruction. Due to where the cancer was located, following its removal, the breast would have looked lopsided, which helped Karen make the decision to have her procedures done.
