Breast reduction surgery is not just for women. Some men develop excessive breast tissue, called gynecomastia, which can lead to feelings of embarrassment in situations where they may be expected not to wear a shirt.
This condition is common and has many causes including heredity – chances are if your father suffered from the condition, you will as well; obesity and poor diet, aging –bodies change shape and get fuller as we get older. Gynecomastia can be corrected with a combination of liposuction and minor surgery to remove excessive breast tissue with minimal scarring as an outpatient surgery.
Blepharoplasty can reverse the effects of aging around the eyes. The eyelids are one of the first to show signs of aging such as lower eyelid puffiness, dark circles or drooping upper eyelids. By removing the fat and excess skin a more youthful and rested look is restored.
The greatest benefit of this “scarless” outpatient procedure is that the results are long lasting and the scar can be hidden in the upper eyelid crease.
Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in North America. Many people choose this procedure to refine certain areas that have not responded to healthy eating and consistent exercise. With minimal “down time”, liposuction is a safe reliable method of removing fat and sculpting the body.
Dr. Dionisopoulos contours his patients’ bodies through tumescent liposuction, improving curves and slimming flabby areas. The fat cells that are removed do not return and so the results can be permanent. While most are women, increasingly men also seek liposuction to help with unwanted collections of fat. Most people present for liposuction in order to slim their tummy, flanks, thighs, and inner knee area.
Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a surgical procedure to remove loose or excess skin and fat, tightening stretched and separated muscles, and eliminating or improving the appearance of scars of the lower abdomen.
A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, and it will leave scar. Abdominoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Most patients return to normal activities in 2 to 3 weeks.
Laser therapy can eliminate hair anywhere on the body. Many clients, both men and women, turn to laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair on the face, ears, nose, chest, back, knuckles, pubic and belly areas as well as feet and toes.
Our top of the line multi-wavelength laser, the Gentle Max Pro® is designed to treat all skin colors and comfortably produces fast, effective results with an average of 80% of hair follicles permanently destroyed in just a few treatments. Any discomfort is minimized by Gentle Max’s patented air cooling technology.
CO2 laser therapy offers a one-time effective treatment to improve the overall condition of your skin by stimulating your own collagen production. By precisely removing damaged skin layer by layer, a CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatment also lessens the appearance of scars and many other skin imperfections such as uneven pigmentation, photodamage, precancerous spots and benign lesions.
This type of laser treatment often requires a few days of downtime, however the results are better and longer lasting than peels or other less- invasive laser solutions.
NONSURGICAL FAT REDUCTION
Even if you follow a regular exercise routine and eat healthy, stubborn pockets of fat can refuse to budge. Men in particular, as they age, can experience unwelcome bulges in the abdomen and flanks areas.
Developed by Harvard University researchers, the unique CoolSculpting® technology causes fat cells to crystallize, break down, and get gradually eliminated through natural body processes. It actually reduces the number of fat cells in the treated area through a complete destruction of the fat cell envelope and its content. The surrounding cells that were not affected by the procedure condense, reducing the overall fat layer in the treated area.
Treatable Areas: CoolSculpting® targets stubborn fat in specific areas: abdomen, flank, upper arm, inner thigh, outer thigh, as well as the back, chest and chin. A single 60-minute treatment is often enough to see significant results in the treated area. More than one session, however, may be required to achieve desired results. Treatments are often done during lunch-hour and clients return to their regular activities immediately following.
Wrinkles in the forehead, between and around the eyes are generally treated with either Botox® and/or Dysport® injections. As a seasoned plastic surgeon, Dr. Dionisopoulos has over 20 years of experience in facial musculature, which translates into intentional and strategic injecting. By targeting only those muscles that create wrinkles, the normal expression of your face will not be affected, resulting in a more natural and youthful look. Full effects become visible after 2-3 days and treatment lasts up to 4 months.
As we age, a normal decrease in collagen and fat, coupled with the thinning of our skin, can cause a loss of volume, resulting in unwanted grooves and/or deep expression lines on the face. Dermal fillers, injected just beneath the skin’s surface, can enhance your facial contours by combining with the water in your skin to instantly restore lost volume, reduce lines and stimulate your body’s own collagen production.

These fillers are a safe, popular and effective temporary alternative to the more traditional surgical face lift. Results can last for over one year.
