What Kinds of Services Does Nuance Cosmetic Surgery Offer?
Nuance Cosmetic Surgery offers a wide selection of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures. Some of our most popular procedures include the following:
What is Vanquish ME™?
Vanquish ME™ is a technological system made by the American company BTL Aesthetics that is used for body contouring. It uses radiofrequency energy to melt fat cells. The body then sends the destroyed fat cells to the excretory system to be eliminated.
A Look at Breast Augmentation
Also known as breast enhancement, breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. In addition to simply increasing the size of the patient’s breasts, it can also be done to replace breasts lost to mastectomies or to correct breasts of different sizes. Women whose breasts have shrunk after pregnancy or childbirth also often undergo breast augmentation. There are several different breast augmentation techniques. Dr. Sumida generally prefers to use saline implants, but he will sometimes use silicone implants, depending on the situation.
What is Dysport®?
Dysport® is an injectable that, like BOTOX®, is made from a purified protein solution. Also like BOTOX®, it works by temporarily relaxing certain facial muscles. Dysport® can be used to treat forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows. It was approved by the FDA in 2009.
