Our plastic surgeons have specialized training and experience in surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. By combining advanced and innovative procedures with academic medicine, we can provide the best outcomes for our patients.
Our plastic surgeons offer the full spectrum of cosmetic surgery, including facial, breast and body surgery.
We take a conservative approach to minimize the chances of complications and side effects. Because surgery can cause drastic life changes, the plastic surgeons at the University of Chicago Medicine Cosmetic Surgery Program take the time to thoroughly discuss your procedure, your specific expectations and your desired outcomes for the surgery.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce excess, sagging skin, tighten and smooth underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and remove fat from the upper arm.
Breast augmentation, or enhancement, is a cosmetic surgery that increases breast size and enhances breast shape, typically through the placement of silicone or saline breast implants. Breast enlargement is often used to enhance breasts of uneven shape or size to improve symmetry. Breast enlargement procedures are done using the latest technology to ensure the safety of our patients and to optimize the surgical results.
A brow lift, sometimes called a forehead lift, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce forehead wrinkles and improve the appearance of the forehead, the brow and the area around the eyes. During a brow lift, your surgeon will raise, or remove, the tissue and skin of the forehead and brow.
