Breast Procedures

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery today. Patients who have lost breast volume following a pregnancy or breastfeeding, due to major weight loss or another factor, or those who have naturally small breasts may be salient and suitable candidates for this treatment to enhance breast size, volume and fullness. In some cases, the breast volume may be intact, but the breasts begin to sag due to age or other factors.

Breast lift can be an effective surgical solution in such cases to raise the breasts and reposition the nipples and areolas. Sometimes breast augmentation and breast lift may be performed in combination with each other. Breast reduction surgery may be advisable in a situation where the patient is unhappy with the excessive size of her breasts, which not only make the overall body appearance disproportionate, but also cause physical discomfort and restricted physical activity.

Facial Plastic Surgery

Face is the most important part of the entire body from an aesthetic perspective. Eyes, ears, nose, lips, forehead, cheeks and chin are key areas of the face that together provide the facial profile. If any one of these components is slightly disproportionate, it can make the overall facial appearance less attractive. Signs of aging also appear more conspicuously on the face, and can make a person look older than he or she really may be. Dr. Lin is a board certified facial plastic surgeon providing advanced facial plastic surgery treatments to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, and surrounding communities.

Facelift is one of the most effective and comprehensive facial surgical procedures. It is designed to reduce the signs of aging from the face, and make the person appear more youthful and attractive. Some patients may need corrective or aesthetic surgeries for only one or more specific parts of the face, and not an entire facelift. Procedures such as rhinoplasty, otoplasty or blepharoplasty can help them achieve the desired results with less invasive surgery. Mini facelift may be performed in case the patient needs only minor wrinkle and fine line reduction.

Body Cosmetic Procedures

Liposuction, tummy tuck, buttock lift, and body lift are some of the important body cosmetic surgery procedures performed by Dr. Lin for patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, and other areas. Patients who are unhappy with stubborn fat pockets in specific areas of the body can improve their body contour with liposuction. Liposuction may also be performed with the assistance of laser technique to achieve more effective results in a less invasive manner.

Buttock lift procedure can help a patient achieve fuller buttock volume in proportion with the rest of the body. Innovative techniques such as Brazilian Butt Lift can help achieve more effective results in many cases. Tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is another effective body plastic surgery procedure. It is designed to make the abdomen flatter, firmer, and tighter.
