  • Breast reduction:  Also called reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction removes excess breast tissue.
  • Breast lift:  A surgical procedure to lift the breasts, also known as mastopexy.

  • Chronic wounds and pressure ulcer:  Surgical treatment including skin grafting, tissue expansion and flaps.
  • Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty):  Surgery to improve the appearance of upper eyelids; can help correct impaired vision due to sagging skin.
  • Gynecomestia surgery:  Male breast reduction.
  • Panniculectomy:  A surgical procedure to remove hanging skin and fat from the lower abdomen to create a smoother abdominal contour.  (Differs from abdominoplasty/tummy tuck in that abdominal muscles are not tightened during a panniculectomy.)
