The Center for Plastic Surgery strives to provide you with individualized advanced care to obtain high-quality personalized results. To help you achieve your goals we:
We can correct deformities as well as the changes of aging of your face, neck, brow, eyes, lips, skin, nose, and ears using the latest techniques of surgery, injections, and skin care. Surgery techniques include use of the endoscope, limited incisions, laser and Intense Pulsed Light treatments. Skin care includes Obagi Nu-Derm®, Epionce®, Theraderm® products and VIVITÉ in Highlands, NC®. The Obagi Blue Peel® and Croton Oil are the usual peels done. We inject Botox® Cosmetic, Juvederm® Ultra Injectable Gel, Juvederm® Voluma, Belotero , and fat using numbing. All of this is done in the serenity of the mountains in Highlands, NC to aid full recovery of not only your body but also your spirit. We provide you time so we can understand exactly what you desire and need and answer any questions you may have. This allows us to select the proper procedure.
We can modify your body (trunk, arms, legs, and buttock) from removal of only a small fatty excess to correction of massive problems from changes in physique or the effects of aging. We can use excisional surgery, liposuction, and ZERONA™ (a non-invasive laser) to accomplish whatever you may need. From a large experience in excisional surgery, Dr. Buchanan became one of the first surgeons trained in this country to perform liposuction. He has continued to develop the technique since, and uses it with other procedures.
We specialize in enlarging, reducing, and modifying your breasts. We have developed new and better ways of doing so using smaller incisions, with the experience gained from both cosmetic modifications and reconstruction of congenital, aging and post cancer problems. Dr. Buchanan obtained much of this experience while on the faculty of the University of Oklahoma at the Center for Breast Health, then, a multispecialty institute that Dr. Buchanan helped develop, caring for the full spectrum of breast problems, both medical and surgical from diagnosis to treatment.
We provide information on how you can protect yourself from the aging effects of the sun, and we have available products to help you do so. We can provide information to help you lose weight, achieve a proper exercise program and stop smoking.
We take safety very seriously. We carefully screen you prior to any procedure to reduce any possible risks. We offer everyone, even those for minor injections, medication to reduce bruising and speed its resolution. We provide these medications, vitamins, and minerals specifically formulated to speed healing and reduce healing complications to everyone undergoing a major surgical procedure. We monitor you appropriately during every procedure, and, if they are likely to help, use prophylactic measures (such as anti-thrombosis leg compression devices, body and fluid warmers and medications) to prevent even unlikely problems.
All surgery is done either in the office under local anesthesia or in the modern, fully equipped and accredited Duke LifePoint Harris Regional Hospital using advanced, light general anesthesia for a quick recovery and safety under the direction of fully Board Certified Anesthesiologists.
