Here are 10 ways you can look and feel great in the upcoming year, with some results lasting in the years to follows.


  1. Breast Lift
  2. A breast lift, also referred to as a mastopexy, is a procedure that can make a major improvement in the appearance of the breasts, without the insertion of an implant. During a breast lift, excess skin is removed, the surrounding tissue is tightened, and the nipples are repositioned. This results in a perkier and more youthful appearing breast. Sometimes a breast lift can even make the breasts appear larger. Women that have sagging or drooping breasts, known as ptosis, due to aging or after pregnancy will greatly benefit from this procedure.

  3. Breast Augmentation
  4. One of the most popular surgical procedures performed each year are breast augmentations. A breast augmentation is a surgery performed to enhance the size and shape of a patient’s breasts. This procedure can help restore the confidence of those with uneven or small breasts. A breast augmentation can help breasts to appear more symmetrical. Many women also look to breast augmentations to increase the size of their breasts. Volume may have been lost due to weight loss, age or pregnancy; or patients may just wish to have their body look more proportionate. A breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift.


  5. Liposuction
  6. Liposuction is a technique of body contouring that removes stubborn fat. This procedure can be performed on various areas of the body such as abdomen, hips, and legs. The fat is easily removed by only making small incisions. Patients who have already tried diet and exercise but cannot lose fat in certain areas of the body have great results with liposuction.

  7. Tummy Tuck
  8. Having trouble getting that firm stomach that you want with diet and exercise alone? A tummy tuck may be the answer. During a tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, excess fat and skin is removed. Weakened and/or torn muscle tissue is rejuvenated during the procedure to create a firmer and smoother stomach. Patients who have gone through pregnancy or significant weight loss, that have loose skin and muscle in the abdomen may want to speak to their doctor about having a tummy tuck.

  9. CoolSculpting for the Body
  10. CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment that can eliminate fat cells. This innovative technique utilizes cooling technology to freeze and kill fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissue and skin undamaged. CoolSculpting can be used on many different areas of the body, such as love handles, abdominals, thighs, and arms. Although CoolScultping is not a weight loss procedure, this treatment can get rid of unwanted fat bulges in areas of patient’s bodies that they are unable to remove with diet and exercise alone.


  11. Facelift
  12. A facelift is a procedure performed to help restore a more youthful appearance, while still looking natural. This surgery, also known as rhytidectomy, removes excess skin and fat from the face. At the same time, the muscles are tightened and sagging skin is lifted to give you a more refreshed appearance. There are many different techniques that are used for a facelift depending on the concerns that you wish to treat. Each one has different name, such as a mini facelift, mid facelift, and a full facelift. After analyzing your face during your consultation, your doctor can decide which facelift will give you the results that you desire.

  13. CoolSculpting for Double Chin
  14. Sometimes no matter how much you diet or exercise that stubborn fat under your chin, or submental fat, will not go away. This fat can give the appearance of a double chin, age the face, and cause patients to feel self-conscious about the way they look. Now the same innovative fat freezing technology that has been used for years on areas of the body can be used on the face. The same concept applies for CoolSculpting for submental fat. It targets unwanted fat in the chin area and freezes the fat cells, therefore killing them and allowing your body to naturally metabolize them. If you want to get rid of your double chin without undergoing surgery, non-invasive CoolSculpting may be the right choice for you.

  15. Fillers and Injectables
  16. At Collins Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of fillers and injectables to help you to look refreshed and youthful throughout the upcoming year. One of the treatments we offer is Botox, which is a muscle relaxer that can temporarily improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in many areas of the face. Kybella is another popular injectable, as this product is injected into submental fat, or double chin, and attacks the fat in the area. Kybella can give you a more sculpted and contoured jawline. We also have a variety of dermal fillers such as Voluma and Juverderm that are hyaluronic acid fillers that are meant to add volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness due to age.

  17. Vampire Facial (PRP)
  18. Although it sounds scary, a vampire facial, also known as a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) facial is not anything to fear. This treatment utilizes the nutrients found in your own blood to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and stretch marks. This treatment can be performed on the face, back of hands, and décolleté to give a more youthful and radiant appearance. No vampires required.

  19. Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser
  20. The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser is able to provide optimal results without patients having to undergo lengthy downtime. This treatment can help restore your skin’s radiance that may have been lost due to age or too much sun exposure. The Halo laser is able to target the areas of damage at the precise depth, setting it apart from other lasers that would either penetrate too deep or not deep enough. This laser treatment can help give you back your youthful glow with minimal downtime.
