Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty (ab-dom’in-o-plas”te), also referred to as a tummy tuck, is a procedure to flatten the abdomen by tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall in addition to removing excess fat and skin. A tummy tuck can produce dramatic results for both men and women. A smooth, flat and firm abdomen implies a healthy, fit and youthful body. This also may be combined with liposuction to increase body contouring.

Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity.

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.

Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss
Body contouring after major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

Liposuction or suction assisted lipectomy is meant to help those who despite diet and exercise you may find areas of their body that are resistant to weight loss efforts. These pockets of fat are ideal for treatment with liposuction. Patients with isolated pockets of fat with good skin elasticity are good candidates for the procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique. It is ideal for treating those stubborn spots once you have achieved your weight loss goal.

True Professional with Gifted Hands
“I had the most amazing experience with Dr. Hess, he is a true professional with gifted hands. Dr. Hess performed a face-lift along with upper and lower lids. The outcome, which to date is only one month, and is greater than my expectations. Dr. Hess is passionate about his work and a true perfectionist. A few days ago, after my procedure, I got a new haircut, and my friends and acquaintance said, "Wow, I love your new hair style, it has taken 10 years off your looks." I only smiled and said thank you. Dr. Hess has wonderful bedside manners and his office staff is friendly.”
“I am a 68 year old woman who suffered from shoulder and neck pain for over 30 years. I had always been afraid of getting a breast reduction due to fear of strong pain meds and the recovery time. I finally went to Dr. Hess who assured me I would be able to handle any discomfort with Tylenol. And, that worked great because the pain wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Tylenol for 3 days and that was it. I am a very active horseback rider and Dr. Hess understood how important it was to me to have small breasts, not only to relieve neck/shoulder pain, but to make it easier to ride my horses a lot of miles. The surgery was a breeze and I was back on my horses 12 days post-op. Shoulder and neck pain is virtually gone! I am thrilled to have gone from an F cup to a B. I highly recommend Dr. Hess for this procedure as he was very caring and concerned about giving me what "I" wanted.”
I Don't Look Tired Anymore
“I originally went to Dr. Sandeen to have my marionette lines removed. I knew beforehand he probably would want to fix my neck too. He suggested I have my lower eyes done so I would look refreshed. I had all three done and I'm so glad I listened to him about my eyes. What a difference. I no longer look tired and my neck looks fabulous, as does the rest of my face. Dr. Sandeen answers your questions and explains the procedures perfectly. Follow up visits were on-time and informative about taking care of my incisions. Dr. Sandeen has a very nice sense of humor and his office staff is professional and pleasant.”
“Dr. Sandeen recently completed breast reduction surgery on my prior 42G's and created a much more livable and aesthetically pleasing size and shape. I could not be happier as I was suffering from pain in my back, neck and shoulders...4.5lbs was removed. My husband is very pleased with the results!”
