Breast Lift A breast lift at our Rocky Mount, NC, plastic surgery practice is a great way for women to reverse the effects of aging and childbearing on the breasts. Some younger women who haven’t had children but who naturally have excess skin and sagging of their breast tissue often can benefit from this procedure as well. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederick K. Park specializes in creating beautiful breast lift results for women throughout the Greenville, Halifax, and Nashville areas. What is Breast Lift Surgery? A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, elevates and reshapes the breasts and nipples by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.

Brow Lift Dr. Park's Approach: "There are several options in approaching a Brow Lift. Small improvements in raising the brow position can be made through an upper eyelid incision during a Blepharoplasty. For brows that need to be lifted further, which is true for the majority of patients, incisions are often made in the upper forehead and scalp. These include a long incision at the hairline, small openings to put scopes through, and small incisions on the sides of the scalp just above the forehead. I have found all to be effective in the right patient. A Brow Lift
Breast Reconstruction Dr. Park's Approach: "Breast Reconstruction is the creation of a new breast following removal, usually for breast cancer. The techniques available to women and plastic surgeons are expanding. A two-stage technique using a tissue expander and then a permanent implant is common. Techniques which utilize the tissues from the back and stomach are also often performed. Reconstruction can be performed at the time of the breast removal or in the future. This decision involves many factors and it is a very important aspect of the consultation. Both the type of reconstruction and its timing are things every
Ear Surgery Dr. Park's Approach: "I really enjoy doing plastic surgery in general and Otoplasty is one of my favorite procedures. Although mostly performed on children, I have performed the surgery on many adults who have always wanted to be corrected and just have never gotten around to it. One of my patients was in her late 60s and felt very self-conscious about the way she looked to people behind her in church. Even at her age, she was thrilled with her new-found confidence. Otoplasty is a very rewarding experience and many patients indicate that it provides them with
Rhinoplasty Dr. Park's Approach: "Nasal surgery is one of the more complex procedures in plastic surgery. Each nose can be very different in terms of its own structure and the procedures it requires to achieve the patient’s goals. Work can be done on the bone, the nasal cartilages and the skin complex which covers the framework. Based on the beginning structure of the nose, it is not possible to safely achieve all possible shapes and sizes. The important thing is to remember to keep the original structures and attributes of the nose in mind and to change those structures
Laser Skin Resurfacing Dr. Park's Approach: "Laser Skin Resurfacing is often a 'homerun' type procedure. It truly can renovate the skin in a way that is difficult to achieve with any other modality. The most common areas I treat are on the lower eyelids, around the mouth and the entire face. The recovery is similar to that of a medium kitchen burn in the area treated. The results can be remarkable with improvement in wrinkles, color, tone, overall softness and smoothness. The recovery takes 1-2 weeks on average before makeup is allowed. Sun protection is key after the procedure.
Xeomin® Dr. Park's Approach: "Although there are 3 Neurotoxins currently available in the US, most know of Botox which was the first available. Botox, Xeomin and Dysport all work on the principle of paralyzing the muscle which is causing wrinkling. The most common areas treated are between the brows, the forehead, and the crows feet areas of the eyes. The effectiveness in these areas is excellent and consistent. The treatments usually last about 3 months, although I have patients who have consistently had treatments for many years and appear to have undergone some muscle atrophy which has prolonged the interval
