Cosmetic vs. Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery is a unique discipline of medicine focused on enhancing a patient’s appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck and body; its an elective procedure because treated areas, while lacking aesthetic appeal, function properly.

Plastic surgery is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature.

The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) is a professional medical society for cosmetic surgeons whose members are dedicated to patient safety and physician education. Founded in 1985, the AACS has more than 2000 members, including Dr. Deal, Dr. Gardner, and Dr. Nease, and represents cosmetic surgeons in the American Medical Association.

Dr. Gregory Childrey and his highly-trained staff have helped countless patients reshape their body through proven, minimally invasive procedures. No matter your goals, we strive to exceed your expectations and give you an amazing new look!

Autologous Fat Transfer

Autologous fat is fat removed from the patient. When used to enhance the buttocks , breasts or correct defects or deformities in a patient from injury or previous surgery, it is called “fat transfer or fat grafting”. Dr. Childrey and his staff are trained and experienced in autologous fat grafting and transfer. Come in for your consultation and evaluation of this exciting procedure to enhance your buttocks, breast or other area of concern.

Laser Liposuction

Health Additions, PLLC offers body contouring using Lipotherme™ technologies. An FDA-approved micro-laser liposuction system, Lipotherme™ involves a tiny instrument (a micro-cannula) with a laser fiber that is inserted under the skin and into the fat layer. The laser liquefies the fat cells that are removed with a gentle suction. This results in far less bleeding and bruising than with traditional liposuction, which translates to faster patient recovery.

Our micro-laser is so tiny that we can contour small areas that couldn’t be treated in the past, such as your upper arms and under your chin. These techniques stimulate collagen formation, which helps the skin tighten up after the fat has been removed.

Why Choose Lipotherme™ Laser Lipolysis?

Lipotherme™ is a safe, effective procedure that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, its thermal effect causes the skin to tighten, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shape.

Lipotherme™ is the least invasive of all lipolysis procedures, and is performed rather quickly, meaning less time spent in the doctor’s office! The advanced, patented technology allows you to remain awake during the procedure and minimal healing.

VASER® Liposuction

Our practice also proud to utilize VASER® Lipo for body contouring procedures. VASER® Lipo is an ultrasound liposuction procedure that offers patients a highly effective way to remove unwanted fat on just about any part of their body.

VASER® Lipo uses an ultrasonic technology that is tissue-selective. The ultrasound energy targets unwanted fat, but preserves other surrounding tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue – to promote smooth contours and rapid healing. Maximum results and minimum downtime are just a couple of the benefits you can expect with VASER® Lipo.

Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty)

Tummy tuck surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure that flattens the abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in a vertical line. This procedure can drastically improve the appearance of your mid section. If you are seeking to correct sagging tummy skin due to pregnancy or weight loss, trust the professionals at Health Additions, PLLC. During your consultation, Dr. Childrey will listen to your concerns about your appearance, and discuss the potential benefits of having a tummy tuck.
