Aesthetic cosmetic surgery is not just about enhancing one’s appearance on the outside; it equals in value to improving your self-esteem on the inside. There are many things you must consider when undergoing any type of surgery that alters the appearance of your body and face. With that said, Dr. Sweat’s team has a very personalized approach from your consultation, surgical plan, pre-operative appointment and subsequent follow-up appointments.
For example, a patient that wants to have mommy makeover surgery may be a candidate for a tummy tuck and breast lift with augmentation. Alternatively, another patient desiring the same procedure may only require a mini-tummy tuck and breast augmentation. The same is true with breast reduction surgery. Often, women express a desire only to reduce the size of their breasts, while others would like a reduction with breast implants to increase the fullness in the upper portion of their breasts. There is no single approach to our patients. Everything we do is designed specifically around your needs.
