You work out, eat right, and strive to improve your body, but there’s a prominent bump at the bottom of your sternum that you feel self-conscious about. Most likely, this is a malformation of the xiphoid process, a small bone structure located at the end of the breastbone.

While it’s unnoticeable for the majority of the population, in some men, the end of the bone may angle outward, leading to a noticeable protrusion right below the sternum. If you’re uncomfortable with the way your chest looks due to this, we can help. Dr. Ortiz, a double board-certified plastic surgeon in Raleigh, can perform a xiphoidectomy surgery to remove the bone structure and help you achieve a flatter, smoother chest.

At our North Raleigh plastic surgery center, our experienced nurse practitioner provides ear piercing for everyone from babies to adults so you can feel confident in your or your child’s wellbeing.

Mommy Makeover

If you’ve had a baby, you know how much pregnancy and breastfeeding can change your body. While it’s possible to lose the “baby weight” through diet and exercise, lifestyle changes can’t tighten loose skin or lift the breasts. The mommy makeover is a popular cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of areas most affected by childbearing such as loose skin, stretch marks, sagging breasts, and more. With a mommy makeover, Dr. Ortiz can help you get your pre-baby body back.
