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, non-invasive procedure skin care. Surgery techniques include limited incisions and fast recovery. Non-invasive procedures include laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatments. Skin care includes Obagi Nu-Derm®, Epionce®, and SkinMedica® 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, Juvederm® Volbella, Juvederm® Vollure, and fat using numbing when indicated or requested. 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 larger problems including those caused by aging. We can use minimal surgery, liposuction, and ZERONA™ (a non-invasive laser) to accomplish these changes. 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 minimally invasive office procedures. Dr. Buchanan obtained significant experience with breast surgery 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 complications to everyone undergoing a major surgical procedure. We monitor you appropriately during every procedure to prevent even unlikely problems.
All surgery is done in the office under local anesthesia. Light Oral Sedation is available if needed.
