We offer only procedures and care proven to produce the best results with the fewest risks and least down time. We specifically do not offer fad or unproven procedures or technology in order to keep you from wasting time and money. We are cognizant of costs and try to offer cost effective alternatives when possible. We have modified even simple common procedures to reduce discomfort and post procedure problems for example by using numbing to reduce discomfort and blunt cannulas in injections to reduce bruising. We offer Arnica and Bromelain to further reduce bruising for such procedures. For larger surgical procedures like blepharoplasty or moderate liposuction, we supply those drugs as well as Vitamins and Minerals specifically formulated to speed healing and reduce operative risks. Additionally, we also provide camouflage make up after those procedures.
Cosmetic plastic surgery of the face can “turn back time” by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, sun damage and sagging skin that can make you look angry, sad, tired or old. We offer Cosmetic Facial Surgery procedures to help you look as young and energetic as you feel. These include individual surgical procedures on the Brow, Eyelids, Face, Neck, Ears, Lips or combining procedures to give you a totally coherent rejuvenated look. These are all done in the office under local anesthesia with, if desired, light oral sedation. Click above to review these procedures. Additionally, we offer minimally invasive injection procedures that can frequently accomplish similar results. Because Dr. Buchanan understands the anatomy of the face and the aging process from the surgical correction of these changes as well as the aesthetics of youth, he can offer you expertise not possible by non-surgeons.

Sometimes, our bodies, including the neck, arms, legs, flanks and abdomen, just do not respond to diet and exercise the way we want them to. Cosmetic surgical procedures can reshape many areas by removing excess fat and skin and toning muscle. Click above to review the procedures we perform for body contouring. We also offer Zerona® proven non-surgical fat removal.
We all would like to have the flawless skin of babies. Their skin is smooth and hydrated, with a thin outer dead cell protective layer, thick dermal support layer, good blood supply, and an even color. Many things affect this balance over time. Major contributors to deterioration of the skin are exposure to the sun, muscle function, gravity and extraneous factors like smoking. Click above to learn how you can reverse these changes and prevent further damage.
Although Plastic Surgery was originally a purely surgical specialty, we now have many improvements and rejuvenations that can achieve your desires without surgery which was previously only possible with surgery. Nothing yet, other than surgery, can tighten skin for longer than a few months, but we can reduce fat, stop progression of aging and hide many of the resulting telltale signs of aging with lasers and injections.
