A mini tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that removes small to moderate amounts of excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen, resulting in a flatter stomach. If you are struggling with a lower belly “pooch” and your weight loss has plateaued with diet and exercise, a mini tummy tuck might be the right choice for you. With a mini tummy tuck, Dr. Ortiz, board-certified plastic surgeon, will make your midsection slimmer and flatter.
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.
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.
If you feel self-conscious of your ears, whether it’s because they stick out, are misshapen or uneven, or there is noticeable scar tissue from a piercing, you don’t need to try to keep hiding your ears. Hats and hairstyles often draw more attention to the area you’re trying to cover up, but fortunately, there’s a safe, simple solution that’s also permanent. Dr. Ortiz provides ear surgery in Raleigh as well as keloid removal surgery so you can feel comfortable and confident in your appearance.
Well-balanced facial features and properly defined bone structure are the foundation to having attractive, proportionate features. For people with weak or recessed chins, chin augmentation improves the contours of the lower part of the face to achieve a stronger profile, minimize the look of a double chin, and create more definition around your neck and jawbone. Most importantly, Dr. Ortiz provides chin implant surgery in Raleigh to help you feel more confident in your appearance so you can live your best life.
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.
As we age, our skin, especially on the face, loses elasticity. This can cause both the upper and lower eyelids to sag, making people appear older, perpetually tired, or even interfere with vision. Some patients also have excess fat around their eyes, making them look puffy. An eyelid surgery corrects this by removing any excess fat and skin from around the eyelids, leaving a smoother, younger-looking appearance. If the area around your eyes makes it difficult to see or you feel self-conscious as a result, eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift, can help.
