An abdominoplasty is designed to remove unwanted skin and tissue from the abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles. The end result is a flatter, smoother stomach and a more attractive figure. In some cases, abdominoplasty is performed in conjunction with liposuction and various body lifting procedures for a more comprehensive treatment. Our staff works with each tummy tuck patient to determine the best way to achieve his or her goals.
Most patients are able to return to work after 2 – 4 weeks; however, it may take a month or more to feel completely normal and to see the full benefits of the abdominoplasty. Tummy tuck patients will also need to wear special compression garments to promote healing and prevent complications that might arise during recovery.
The partial abdominoplasty, or mini tummy tuck, is an alternative available to patients who do not need a full tummy tuck. This procedure is intended for patients whose abdominal muscles do not require repositioning, and who do not need much skin removed.
This procedure involves less scarring and a shorter recovery time, all with the same beautiful results expected from a full tummy tuck. To schedule a consultation, contact HaysMed Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
Blepharoplasty (Eye Lid Surgery)
The eyes are one of the most important features of the face. When the eyes appear tired or sagging, the patient seems older or sad. When the eyes are bright and fresh, the patient has a younger, healthier appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to rejuvenate the area around the eyes, restoring youthful beauty and an alert, refreshed look.
Healing time after a blepharoplasty is usually rapid and results are apparent early in the postoperative period. Side effects may include temporary blurred vision and sensitivity to light. Soreness can be treated with medication and swelling can be reduced with a cold compress. Our staff will go over other postoperative steps with the patient to ensure a fast and safe recovery. These include the use of ointment and eye drops to keep the incisions lubricated and the eyes from drying out. Stitches are removed within two to seven days of the procedure, and patients are usually able to resume normal activities within one to two weeks. Complications are extremely rare, though they may include hematoma and asymmetry of the eyelids.
Our staff can achieve rejuvenating results that safely and dramatically enhance your appearance. To schedule a consultation, contact HaysMed Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
The face and neck are often the first parts of the body to exhibit signs of aging. Youthful skin is taut and smooth because it has large quantities of collagen (a protein found in connective tissue). Sun exposure, stress, and other factors can hasten the decrease in collagen production that occurs naturally as we age. For that reason, facial folds, wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin can all take their toll much too soon. It is possible to reduce some of these effects with a facelift procedure, while eyelid surgery and brow lift surgery can address other areas of concern.
Our clinicians have an accomplished history of providing safe cosmetic enhancement results that are beautiful and natural looking. Facelift patients choose our services because they desire plastic surgery from a trusted professional with experience and a well-documented record of success.

HydraFacial™ takes its name from the root word Hydrate. The HydraFacial™ removes dead skin cells and impurities from your face while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The proprietary serums are clinically formulated to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, congested pores, hyper-pigmentation and acne-prone skin. The result is a cool, comfortable process that leaves your skin radiantly clean, refined, moist and polished.
HaysMed offers liposuction to improve the body contours and figures of his patients. The liposuction procedure involves making small incisions and using a suction device to remove excess fat. It is an excellent way to treat a moderate amount of body fat that does not respond readily to diet and exercise. Our approach to cosmetic surgery ensures that liposuction patients achieve consistent results.
Full recovery from liposuction usually takes no more than a few weeks during which the patient will wear protective bandages. Patients are frequently able to return to work in less than a week. There will be some swelling and tenderness after the procedure, but it should subside quickly as the patient recovers. Within a few weeks, patients will be able to show off an exciting new body contour.
Our staff look forward to helping you achieve the body shape of your dreams. To schedule a consultation, contact HaysMed Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery today.

Micropigmentation is a great way to enhance your natural features, making them appear more clearly defined, revealing a naturally beautiful you.
Micropigmentation is available for the following areas:
- Eyeliner –Top and/or bottom lash lines can be done to make lashes appear fuller and darker. It also eliminates the need for daily makeup application.

Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to change the size and shape of the nose for cosmetic or functional purposes. The surgery addresses abnormalities of the nasal bones as well as the underlying cartilage of the tip and septum. Because no two noses are the same, rhinoplasty is tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. The results that we are able to achieve can complement and enhance the beauty of other facial features. During a rhinoplasty consultation, our staff will determine which surgical approach is most appropriate for your nose-shaping treatment.
After the rhinoplasty procedure, a splint is placed on the nose to help facilitate healing. The splint is generally removed after one week, at which time most patients are able to return to work and resume their normal activities.
While no scar can be removed completely, our staff can often improve the appearance of a scar, making it less obvious through the injection or application of certain steroid medications or through surgical procedures known as scar revisions.
Many variables can affect the severity of scarring, including the size and depth of the wound, blood supply to the area, thickness and color of your skin, and the direction of the scar.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. While skin cancers can be found on any part of the body, about 80 percent appear on the face, head, or neck, where they can be disfiguring as well as dangerous.
Most skin cancers are removed surgically. If the cancer is small, the procedure can be done quickly and easily using local anesthesia. The procedure may be a simple excision, which usually leaves a thin, barely visible scar or it may involve a more complicated procedure. In either case, the risks of the surgery are low.
Thigh and Arm Lift
Many patients find great benefit in contouring procedures that target specific problem areas. Arm and thigh lifts, for instance, target only excess skin and tissue on the arms and upper legs, respectively. These types of procedures are less invasive and require less recovery time while still offering our body contouring patients many important potential aesthetic benefits.
