Dr. Restifo is committed to your health, well-being and complete satisfaction. He will listen to your concerns, offer you options, and develop your unique treatment plan to meet your personal needs.
Dr. Richard Restifo is resolute in providing for his patients' care, comfort and results. He considers each patient's needs individually and treats aesthetic procedures and medical needs equally.
Your ultimate satisfaction and results with plastic surgery will depend primarily upon the experience, qualifications, and talents of the physician you choose.
Breast Augmentation. There is a variety of options with respect to size, type and shape of the implants, as well as pocket location and incision type. During your consultation and examination Dr. Restifo will assess the dimensions of your chest, the amount of soft tissue coverage, and the consistency of your own breast tissue. He will listen to your goals, expectations and preferences. After discussing and considering these factors, it is likely that you and Dr. Restifo will be able to agree on an implant and surgical technique that will give you the best possible result.
Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy.
Mastopexy (Breast lift). Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging can result in a situation where there is an excess of skin for the available breast tissue. This usually presents as the nipple or breast tissue descending below the breast fold. In mild cases this can be treated by an implant alone, which will fill out the loose skin and improve breast shape. More significant drooping will require skin excision to elevate the nipple and the areola and create a desirable breast shape.
Body Contouring Procedures
Liposuction is intended to treat localized areas of fat. Some commonly treated areas are the abdomen, flanks, saddle bags, thighs, upper arms and back. Smooth, taut and youthful skin will respond well to liposuction. If the skin is loose, flabby or has many stretch marks, then liposuction may not give the best result. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a method of weight reduction.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty). The abdominal skin after multiple pregnancies is more often treated better by abdominoplasty. If skin is loose or flabby, one of the variants of a tummy tuck will be required. If the loose skin is all below the belly button, then a mini tummy tuck is the best option.
Our Wilton property includes a state-of-the-art outpatient surgical facility that has been accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Facilities for an overnite stay, if desired, are also available on the grounds of our office complex.
