“I do every procedure three times. I do it all in my head in advance. I do the actual surgery. I review it all from start to finish to look for ways to improve. This way, each procedure I do is my best work.”
Dr. Baker offers a range of procedures, each of which is carefully customized to your specific goals and physique:
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area and tightens the abdominal muscles to create a flatter stomach. It is often combined with liposuction to achieve the best possible results. For patients with less extensive sagging skin, a mini tummy tuck removes and tightens the skin below the belly button only. A “full” or traditional tummy tuck addresses the entire abdominal wall.
A mommy makeover is a popular plastic surgery procedure that usually includes a combination of abdominal surgery, breast surgery, and liposuction to remove excess fat. It is typically performed to enhance a woman’s body contour, appearance, and confidence after having one or more children. Dr. Baker has extensive experience performing successful mommy makeovers on patients wishing to regain more youthful, tight, and pleasing contours in the breast and abdominal area. He will work alongside you to plan your customized procedure and define safe, realistic, and effective surgical goals.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size or change the shape of the breasts. The procedure involves either transferring fat to the breasts or inserting silicone or saline implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast augmentation is most commonly used to enlarge the breasts, correct asymmetry, and restore breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy.
In a breast implant removal surgery, expired implants or implants you are unhappy with are removed in order to return your breasts to a more natural size and shape. You may also opt to replace unsatisfactory, leaking, or expired implants with new ones to give you the shape, volume, and lift you desire. Whether you had surgery results that did not match your vision, or it is simply time to remove old implants, we can help you get the breasts you want with implant removal or exchange surgery.
A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a popular surgical procedure that addresses sagging in the breasts due to gravity, pregnancy, and other factors. Dr. Baker typically performs mastopexy procedures for women who wish to correct the appearance of pendulous or aging breasts. The lifting procedure will remove excess skin from the breasts and reshape the contours to lift the bust into a naturally youthful position. Often, the surgeon will also reduce the size of the areolae to make them more proportionate.
Women with chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain due to overly large breasts may find immense relief after breast reduction surgery. Other reasons you might consider breast reduction include chronic skin irritation under the breasts, nerve pain, and low self-esteem due to the size of your breasts. Breast reduction surgery can provide both functional and cosmetic benefits, including pain relief, more attractive breasts, and access to wider clothing options. Individual consultation with Dr. Baker will determine if a breast reduction is the correct procedure to help you meet your functional and aesthetic goals.
Every Body is Unique
Before going forward with surgery, patients must attend a consultation with Dr. Stephan Baker. During this initial visit, be prepared to spend time discussing your surgical goals and expectations. Dr. Baker will examine you to evaluate your candidacy and to determine if your goals are realistic.
He will provide you with information about your options and help you make an educated decision about which treatment can best suit your needs. Before the meeting, take notes about any questions you have, and be sure to come prepared with a list of your medications and supplements, plus information on any current or previous medical conditions. Be honest about any smoking, alcohol and drug use, as these habits can impact the results of the surgery. It’s important not to withhold any important medical information, as doing so could impact your safety and results.
Restore Your Classical Beauty
Before undergoing surgery, you may need to make certain lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking or pausing certain medications. Dr. Baker will review all needed preparations and aftercare instructions at your consultation. You will be under general anesthesia during your procedure, so you will also need to arrange for a ride home and, if possible, extra help at home during the first couple of days of your recovery. Most surgeries will take a few hours and will be performed in an outpatient setting. You will spend about an hour afterward being monitored in the surgery center before being cleared to go home. You may need a week or two of recovery time, so plan to take time off of work or other responsibilities during this crucial healing period.
Where Art Meets Life
Dr. Baker will give you detailed aftercare instructions, which you should follow to promote optimal healing and results. Pain will be managed with medication to ensure your comfort when you return home. You may need to take certain precautions during your recovery, such as avoiding exercise, heavy lifting, and certain medications. You may also need to sleep on your back for the first couple of weeks and wear a special garment or bra to support your healing tissues.
We are committed to providing safe, lasting, and beautiful results that make you feel confident and comfortable in your body. We are on hand to support your recovery and offer ongoing care as your needs evolve.
You will be asleep under general anesthesia for body plastic surgery. After you return home, you will be provided with medication to manage pain and discomfort during early recovery.
