Liposuction, or lipo, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in Raleigh and across the country. Although it’s not a substitute for diet and exercise, liposuction is helpful in removing localized fat deposits that don’t seem affected by other weight loss techniques. If you’re at a healthy and stable weight but still have stubborn fat you’d like to get rid of, liposuction may be a good option for you.
If the shape of your belly button makes you self-conscious, umbilicoplasty, sometimes called “belly button surgery”, is a minimally-invasive surgery to reshape your navel. Pregnancy, piercings, weight gain or loss, and genetics can all impact the shape of your belly button, sometimes in a way that makes you feel insecure. With an umbilicoplasty, Dr. Ortiz, a board-certified plastic surgeon, can help you feel more confident.
Lasers can be used in a variety of non-surgical skin care applications to address skin conditions or concerns, restore youthfulness, and prevent the signs of aging.

Each year, 3-4% of babies born in the US have a congenital anomaly. The type and severity of these abnormalities can vary wildly but all of them will impact the child’s appearance and ability to function and develop. Whether your child suffers from a cleft lip, cleft palate, or malformation of the ears, nose, jaw, hands, or feet, Dr. Ortiz can help. By correcting a structural congenital anomaly, Dr. Ortiz ensures patients experience a higher quality of life and feel more confident with their appearance.
Scars are visible reminders of past pain, injury, accident, or trauma. When they’re in highly visible spots on the body, they can cause you to feel self-conscious. If you have a scar or scars that you feel negatively impact your appearance or even your ability to function, scar revision surgery may be a good choice for you. While scar revision surgery can’t remove a scar completely, it can drastically minimize its appearance and allow you to feel more confident.
Skin cancer is very scary but if you’ve recently been diagnosed, you’re not alone. Each year, approximately 3 million people are diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer in the US. The good news is that non-melanoma cancer rarely spreads and surgery to remove cancerous growths has a very high success rate. If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with skin cancer, you can trust Dr. Ortiz with removal of cancerous growths.
Those with prominent ears know that it can lead to hurtful teasing and bullying, especially in childhood. With otoplasty, commonly called ear pinning surgery, you can regain your confidence as this procedure improves the appearance of large or misshapen ears, particularly those that protrude or “stick out.” Ear pinning surgery is a relatively simple outpatient procedure that balances out your facial features and frees you from the emotional distress that can be brought on by protruding ears.
Chin augmentation, or genioplasty, can add strength and shape to a weak chin or jawline, but may also reduce a prominent chin. Whether it involves using an implant to round out a weak chin or reshaping bones to reduce the size of a protruding chin, a chin augmentation brings the chin and jawline into proportion with the rest of the face. Genioplasty may also help reduce the appearance of a double chin caused by a small chin bone.
Rhinoplasty, commonly called a “nose job,” is the reshaping of the nose to make it more proportionate to the rest of the facial features. Rhinoplasty can also correct damage done by injury to the nose or provide relief for people with breathing problems due to irregular nasal structure, such as a deviated septum. Rhinoplasty is a highly customizable surgery, ensuring each patient gets the results he or she wants.
