Six-pack abs aren’t just a fantasy. With a tummy tuck, they can be a dream come true! What can a tummy tuck do for you?
If your abdominal area has excess flab but tight abdominal muscles and a normal amount of skin, you’ll only need liposuction. This will not require any alteration of ab muscles or skin. However, if you have loose ab muscles, hanging skin, and more fat than you’d like, a tummy tuck with liposuction is the right procedure for you.
Want to learn more about the tummy tuck procedure in person? Respected, board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace are here to help. They will answer your questions and create a surgical plan to map out your tummy tuck. Contact our office to set up a consultation.
If you’ve been researching breast reduction procedures, you may have seen mentions of the scarless breast reduction technique. Scarless breast reduction involves liposuction and a very small incision, and it may be perfect for you.
In contrast to other types of breast reduction, scarless breast reduction will not require the nipple and areola to be shifted or altered. As a result of this, the risk of numbness or loss of sensation in that area is nonexistent. Because of the added safety of this procedure, many patients find it more desirable.
Want to find out more about scarless breast reduction? Ask a plastic surgeon! Skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace would be happy to answer your questions about the surgery and plan out the procedure with you. Arrange a consultation with them by contacting our office.
During breast reduction surgery, a plastic surgeon must create an incision before removing tissue. One possible incision type is a lollipop incision.
A lollipop incision provides a fair amount of tissue access for breast reduction. It involves a circular cut around the circumference of the areola, followed by two outwardly slanted vertical ones below it. This creates a keyhole shape. When the two vertical lines are joined and sutured together, it creates the stick of the lollipop shape.

Correcting a wide nose typically involves one of two types of rhinoplasty technique. When a small amount of tissue needs to be removed, the plastic surgeon will employ the sill excision. For this, an incision will be made within the nostril.
When more nasal tissue must be removed in order to narrow a wide nose, the surgeon will perform an alar wedge excision. For this, the incision must be external.
In some situations, both of the aforementioned rhinoplasty techniques will be performed. To arrange a rhinoplasty consultation to correct a wide nose malformation, contact our office. Board-certified cosmetic surgeons Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace will create a surgical plan to your needs and specifications.
When you get blepharoplasty surgery, your plastic surgeon will typically need to create small incisions in order to gain access to the eyelid tissues. Once the procedure is complete and your eyelids are on their way to looking their best, your surgeon will usually need to close the incisions with stitches.
Any medical stitches will be removed in anywhere from three days to one week from the blepharoplasty procedure. If dissolvable stitches were used to close the incision(s), they will dissolve in the same period of time; you will not need to get them removed.

When it comes to noses, proportions make a big difference. The distances between parts of the nose, the sizes of each part, and their relative locations all affect the overall look of the nose. The columella is no exception.
When a person’s septum is longer in proportion to the rest of the nose, this results in a lower-hanging columella. Rhinoplasty is a viable solution to this issue.
Take the first step towards a more-balanced nose – set up an appointment with our office. Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace, both board-certified cosmetic surgeons, will come up with a surgical plan of action to reduce your hanging columella.
Without body contouring surgery, it’s nearly impossible to lose the sagging skin that comes with age, childbirth, and massive weight loss. A body lift will help remove cellulite, skin, and fat from numerous areas, and it can take as few as three hours to complete.
After body contouring surgery, the incisions that were used to remove the fatty deposits and drooping skin are closed with layered medical sutures. Bandaged are placed over these areas. Drains (tiny tubes) are inserted to remove excess fluid, stopping it from building up.
Though many doctors do perform body contouring, it’s best to select one with skill and experience you can trust. Whether you’re in the Jacksonville area or are just visiting, board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace are the best for the job.

Does the end of your nose have a rounded, ball-like look? This is called bulbous tip, and it can make people feel self-conscious about their noses. Rhinoplasty surgery is a good way to make the rounded areas straighter and the tip narrower.
Part of bulbous tip rhinoplasty is gauging the thickness of the patient’s nasal skin. If the skin of your nose is thin, there’s a good chance you also have strong, supportive nasal bones and cartilage. For thin skin, smaller internal changes that plastic surgeons make can show too dramatically, so it’s sometimes necessary to insert a new layer between the skin and the cartilage.
The best way to make an informed choice about the right plastic surgeon for your procedure is talking to one. Discuss rhinoplasty, bulbous tips, and more with Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace, both board-certified plastic surgeons serving the Jacksonville area.

Age, pregnancy, and several other factors can cause the breasts to sag. Do you ever wish you could turn back the clock? A Benelli-lollipop lift – a type of breast lift – may be just the procedure for you.
A Benelli-lollipop lift, also called a vertical lift, lollipop lift, or vertical mastopexy, is typically used for those patients with a moderate degree of breast sagging. The “lollipop” part of its name comes from the fact that the resulting scar shares its shape with a lollipop – a circle on a vertical line.
To find out more about Benelli-lollipop lifts and other types of breast lift procedures, speak with a qualified physician. Doctors Timothy Fee and William A. Wallace are experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons with numerous satisfied patients. Contact our office to set up an appointment today.
Your pearly whites may be flawless, but if too much of your gums shows when you smile, it’s those overwhelming pinks that will be the talk of the town. Silence those gossips with a gummy smile reduction.
When it’s unnecessary to remove any tissue from the gum area, Botox is a perfect choice for correcting gummy smile. Botox lowers a hyperactive upper lip, concealing the gums and letting only the teeth show.
When a large amount of tissue reduction is required, consider crown lengthening. During this procedure, bone and gum tissue is removed with a laser or a scalpel. After this, the tissue left in the area is draped around the teeth in a way that creates an appropriate tooth-gum balance.
