Although a facelift cannot completely transform your appearance, it can help you look younger by decreasing the most apparent signs of aging. This procedure can include eliminating excess fat, tightening the facial muscles, and rearranging the skin on your neck and face to create an uplifted look. Because this is a very individualized procedure, Dr. Piskun will evaluate the skin and underlying bones of your face during your initial consultation and will determine your goals for the procedure. She will also discuss your options and the approach she plans to take with you. You must let Dr. Piskun know of any medical conditions you have, especially if you are a smoker, because these factors can impact your healing.
Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)
A forehead lift, also referred to as a brow lift, can help you achieve a more youthful look as it helps smooth out frown lines and any furrows in the forehead, as well as raises the eyebrows and eyelids. It can also be combined with other procedures, such as facelifts, for a more dramatic result. Dr. Piskun performs this procedure for men and women, and during your initial consultation she will discuss your options and potential outcomes based on your unique face structure.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
The areas around the eyes are some of the first to show signs of aging, due to lines, wrinkles, drooping and swelling. Dr. Piskun performs eyelid lifts to help rejuvenate and refresh the eyes. She can work on both upper and lower eyelids, depending on your desired result. During your initial consultation, she will discuss the details of the procedure and the recovery process with you. Eyelid surgery can be performed by itself or in conjunction with other procedures for a more comprehensive result.
If you have areas of stubborn, excess fat that won’t go away with exercise and diet changes, liposuction can help reduce your weight and improve your appearance. Liposuction is a procedure in which excess fatty tissue is removed from areas such as the chin, neck, upper arms, cheeks, stomach, hips, buttocks, breasts/chest, or hips. Liposuction can help improve the contour of the body; however, it is not a cure for obesity, should not replace a healthy diet and exercise, and is not effective for eliminating cellulite.
Candidates for liposuction should be within 30% of their ideal body weight and should be non-smokers without any life-threatening diseases or conditions. Dr. Piskun will work with you during your initial consultation to determine if liposuction is right for you and the results you can expect.
Stubborn excess fat and skin around the stomach can be a result of genetics, pregnancy, weight loss or gain, spinal deformities, or past surgeries. If you are struggling to achieve the flat stomach you desire with diet and exercise changes, a tummy tuck may be right for you. This procedure can involve different techniques, such as liposuction, removal of excess fat tissues and skin, or tightening of abdominal muscles. However, a tummy tuck should not be used to replace a healthy diet and exercise and is not a cure for obesity.
Male Body Contouring
Dr. Piskun performs a wide range of surgical procedures to help men achieve a more youthful appearance. She understands that the procedure, risks, side effects, and results differ between men and women, and she will work with you to achieve your desired outcome. Her male body contouring procedures include liposuction, facelift, and more.
Breast augmentation is a procedure that uses saline or silicone implants to enhance the size and volume of the breasts. This procedure can help balance out your figure, especially in cases where you have lost breast volume due to weight loss or pregnancy. Implants can also be used to reconstruct breasts after an injury or a mastectomy. Dr. Piskun will discuss all of your options with you based on your breast size, shape, and anatomy, as well as the elasticity of your skin and your body type. We encourage patients to be honest in their expectations and to seek this procedure for their own self-confidence, not to fulfill anyone else’s expectations.
Breast augmentation is only covered by insurance if you are a breast cancer patient seeking reconstruction.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift can help reduce drooping, creating a more youthful silhouette. This procedure involves tightening and lifting the tissues in the breast, and can reduce sagging that is caused by aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or other causes. The areolas can also be repositioned to help the breasts appear more proportional. Breast lifts are often performed in combination with augmentation. Dr. Piskun will discuss the surgery and recovery period during your initial consultation.
If you have had a mastectomy due to breast cancer or another illness or injury, breast reconstruction can improve your self-confidence by restoring your breasts to a normal size, shape, and symmetry. Depending on your unique situation, the reconstruction can begin at the same time as your mastectomy, or after you have healed from the mastectomy and other cancer treatments. The procedure involves several stages and techniques to create natural-looking breasts. Dr. Piskun will discuss your options, the process, and your expected results during your initial consultation.
Breasts that are very large can cause many health problems, including back and neck pain, difficulty breathing, deformation of the spine, and more. In addition, disproportionately large breasts can affect your self-confidence. Breast reduction is a procedure that removes excess fat, skin and tissue from the breasts to create a more proportional appearance and prevent health consequences.
Because this procedure is often performed for health as well as cosmetic reasons, it is possible but sometimes difficult to get insurance coverage. Dr. Piskun and her team will work with you during your initial consultation to discuss your options and to contact your insurance company for approval. If we cannot get preauthorization, we will provide you with a price quote.

- Acne or acne scars

Dr. Piskun will discuss the process, expected results, and possible side effects during your initial consultation.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is an injectable purified protein that helps to decrease the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a nonsurgical procedure that we recommend our patients receive every three months. Call our office to set up an appointment, as we schedule BOTOX® treatments on specific days.
Radiesse® is a safe, long-lasting injectable that helps stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles and creates a more youthful appearance. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Piskun to determine if you are a candidate for this treatment.
JUVEDERM® is an FDA-approved dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the facial skin in a nonsurgical procedure that helps to improve volume and hydration. This reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles and creates a natural-looking, youthful appearance. There are three types of JUVEDERM® Injectable Gels, and Dr. Piskun will work with you to determine which will work best to achieve optimal results.
Dr. Piskun performs sclerotherapy to get rid of or reduce the appearance of spider veins. She uses Asclera, which is an injection that causes spider veins to contract until they are no longer noticeable. Sclerotherapy may require several treatment sessions, depending on the severity of your spider veins. During each treatment session we will address as many veins as possible in order to decrease the appointments you need to schedule. Dr. Piskun can discuss the process, possible results, and treatment schedule with you during an initial consultation.
