Dr. Roth performs most of his procedures at the nearby Westside Surgical Hospital. Dr. Roth typically uses local anesthesia, although general sedation is also available. After you are comfortable, the doctor will create several tiny incisions in the treatment area. He will then inject a special anesthetic solution, which will swell the fat cells and shrink the surrounding blood vessels. This step makes it easier for Dr. Roth to isolate the fat cells, and minimizes post-operative swelling and discomfort. Next, he will gently loosen the fat cells before suctioning them out with a small tube called a cannula. Liposuction usually takes about one to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.
After closing the incisions, Dr. Roth will provide you with compression garments and bandages. These garments are designed to be extra soft against tender skin, enhancing body contouring while hastening the healing process. Following treatment, Dr. Roth will remain available to answer your questions and address any concerns. Additionally, Dr. Roth will call you the first night after surgery to check that you are feeling well and healing free of complications.
After your treatment, you will have one or more follow-up appointments, so that Dr. Roth can monitor your recovery. The first appointment will normally take place two to four days after your surgery.
Dr. Roth will typically use general anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your procedure. After you are fully prepped for surgery, Dr. Roth will create tiny incisions on your nose to access the cartilage. Depending on your aesthetic goals, he may choose to make an incision across your columella (the small bridge of skin between your nostrils). Known as open rhinoplasty, this method will give Dr. Roth easier access to your cartilage, so he can perform more advanced surgical techniques. In other cases, he may create closed incisions inside your nostrils. This method is less invasive, heals more rapidly, and does not typically leave any visible scarring.
Once he makes the incision, Dr. Roth will reshape your cartilage, customizing the alterations to meet your needs. During an alar narrowing, he will reshape your nostrils to create a more natural position and a smaller size. This procedure is quite common if you have flared or upturned nostrils. Dr. Roth can also perform a septoplasty to reshape the cartilage and remove breathing obstructions. In some cases, he may remove soft tissue or bone to smooth and straighten the bridge of your nose. When the surgery is complete, Dr. Roth will carefully close the incisions, taking care to minimize any scarring. The entire procedure usually takes between one to two hours.
This operation refers to the surgical removal of excess tissue deposits in the chest area due to a condition called gynecomastia. The severity of the operation varies according to the level of the male patient’s gynecomastia. While some cases only require a small incision for liposuction, some patients need to undergo a combination of skin incision and liposuction. By creating an anchor-like incision around the areola then down to the breast fold, the surgeons can remove the excess tissue under the breasts.
Also known as orthognathic surgery, the purpose of jaw reconstruction is to realign the jaw by cutting the excessive protruding portion. Aside from the correction mandibular discrepancies, orthognathic surgery can also treat congenital deformities such as cleft palate.
The rhytidectomy procedure, which is more commonly known as facelift, reverses the signs of aging on the face by removing the excess fat, tightening muscles under the skin, and fastening the facial skin. Usually, facelift goes with other procedures such as forehead lift, eyelid surgery, and nose reshaping.
