Check below for a brief description of the body plastic surgeries offered:
|Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Over time, the upper arm can become saggy and less toned. This can be due to significant weight changes or previous liposuction. Such a condition can be disfiguring and limit your choice of clothing.Brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an Arm Lift, reshapes your upper arm and yields a more natural and youthful appearance. Incisions are made on the inside of the upper arm and excess skin and fat are removed. Each body sculpting procedure is tailored to the unique needs of each individual.
Although quite common, birthmarks range from barely noticeable to very disfiguring. The Christman Plastic Surgery Center specializes in Birthmark Removal and Congenital Defect Removal using procedures that minimize scarring. Removing birthmarks is recommended not only for cosmetic reasons, but also because some birthmarks are predisposed to developing a dangerous skin cancer (melanoma) later in life.
Large amounts of weight loss can result in laxity, or looseness of skin in all body areas. The excess skin can be unsightly and can also cause clothes to fit poorly. Multiple plastic surgery procedures can be performed in a Body Lift in order to tighten affected areas – whether they be the abdomen, buttocks, groin, thighs, arms, or back. These body sculpting enhancements are typically quite popular.
|Body Reconstruction & Trauma
Dr. Christman has over 30 years experience assisting patients involved in auto accidents, burns, dog bites and every other imaginable trauma. He is available for emergency Body Reconstruction services 24 hours a day.Call (937) 435-5354 during regular office hours or (937) 463-1575 after regular office hours. Initial expert care and repair of traumatic wounds by a plastic surgeon often minimizes the need for later additional surgery.
|Cleft Palate | Cleft Lip Repair
The Christman Plastic Surgery Center in Dayton assists patients with Cleft Lips and Cleft Palates. These procedures are often staged, and frequently require revisions in later childhood or adolescence. There is a frequent need for nasal reconstruction.
|Ear Pinning (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth or is perhaps secondary to an injury. Misshapen ear cartilage is molded to provide a more natural appearance with Ear Pinning. Some children are teased by their friends and can become very self-conscious. Early childhood is a good time to correct such defects.
Transferring fat from one area of the body to another can be beneficial to both the donor, as well as the recipient site. Removed fat from an unwanted area can be used to enhance another area of the body when transplanted into that location. Fat Grafts are typically performed in our Dayton facility using local anesthesia, thus becoming more cost effective.
|Hand Surgery | Carpal Tunnel
Hand injuries can vary greatly, and having an experienced plastic surgeon available can make a big difference in the recovery of function. Dr. Christman has performed Hand Surgery for over 30 years. He is an expert in correcting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome through surgery with minimal scarring.
Many women suffer silently from deformed, painful or enlarged labia. Some endure painful intercourse, frequent urinary tract infections, pain upon wearing tight clothing or friction when exercising.Labiaplasty (the reduction of the labia minora) can be quite helpful for these conditions as well as for aesthetics. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in the Dayton Plastic Surgery Center, or under general anesthesia in an outpatient hospital facility.
|Liposuction | Lipo
Body sculpting with Liposuction is an attractive option for patients with tight skin. It must be individualized to each patient. The Christman Plastic Surgery Center in Dayton provides liposuction procedures, helping many reshape their bodies into a much leaner version of themselves. Although liposuction has its place, it is often best combined with skin resection if there is skin surplus.
A Thigh Lift procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia an outpatient surgery. Patients wanting to sculpt their thigh areas (both inner and outer), have relied upon Dr. Christman for over 30 years. The excess skin is removed in order to tighten the thighs, giving them a more youthful and athletic appearance.
|Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
For many, cosmetic surgery is the only way to achieve a flatter abdomen. A tummy tuck removes excess skin and fat, while also tightening the abdominal musculature. This is commonly performed on women following childbirth, but more men are also requesting this procedure. It should never be performed on smokers, as the risk of complications is elevated. It must be done under general anesthesia. The results can be stunning.
