FAQs & Glossary of Procedures

A consultation with Dr. Peebles is your first step to educate you about and answer any specific questions you may have about procedures and the options available to you.

Botox

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin often referred to by its product name Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox® is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

Breast Reduction

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight — from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders, and unusually large breasts can make a woman — or a teenage girl — feel extremely self-conscious.

Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammoplasty, is designed for such women. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition. The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence, and quality of life. This surgery can give you a relatively natural-looking breast and enhance your appearance, though not giving a look or feel exactly as the breast that was removed.

Breast Augmentation / Lift

Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast for a number of reasons such as:

  • to enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small
  • to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy
  • to balance a difference in breast size, or as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.

By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes.
