" THE INLAND EMPIRE'S PREMIER BREAST SURGEON "
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures in the United States each year, Liposuction can benefit both men and women who struggle with localized pockets of fat. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, rather it is best designed for people who are in otherwise good shape and at a healthy weight, but have a stubborn, concentrated area which has been virtually immune to diet and exercise. Everyone has pre-determined trouble areas, for some of us itís our abdomen, for other hips, thighs or knees or the arms. Liposuction can easily treat each of these areas and more. In fact, liposuction can pretty much be used anywhere on the body.
You will want to consult with a skilled board certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In some cases liposuction couple with another body contouring procedure may be required to achieve the desired results. For example, if your skin has poor elasticity, is loose or hanging in the abdominal area which you want liposuction, a liposuction coupled with a Tummy Tuck may be recommended. Likewise a in the thighs, a Thigh Lift with liposuction, etc.
If you are ready to begin a discussion with a board-certified plastic surgeon contact our office about your liposuction and body contouring options and scheduling your consultation.
We all have areas of our bodies that we feel self-conscious about, for some it’s the arms, the thighs or the mid-section. For some, what once may have been a source of pride, has through life, or changes in weight or pregnancy, become something we no longer feel proud of. To improve the mid-section, when diet and exercise has failed to yield the results desired, a Tummy Tuck procedure may be the answer you are looking for. Diet and exercise can only do so much, especially where excess, sagging skin is concerned. Tummy Tuck’s remove excess skin to create a smoother, tighter looking mid-section. Tummy Tuck’s can also tighten abdominal muscles that have become stretched out. Sometimes people have excess, stubborn fat cells and these can be addressed when an Abdominoplasty procedure is paired with Liposuction.
Ideal candidates for Tummy Tuck procedures are in good mental and physical health with realistic expectations for the procedure and its potential results. To learn more about Tummy Tuck surgery and to find out if you are a good candidate, contact our office to schedule your consultation!

Did you know that skin is the largest organ? We are surrounded by our skin, it keeps us safe and battles the elements day in and day out, everyday of our life. Taking proper care of your skin is one of the best ways to keep yourself looking young and healthy. Dr. Andreasen offers a plethora of skin care treatments to keep your skin in top form. One of these procedures is Microdermabrasion.
Inland Empire Microdermabrasion is a popular skin re-freshening treatment which uses tiny crystals to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells to reveal the smooth, yet unharmed, healthy skin which lies just beneath. Since Microdermabrasion is removing that dead outer layer of skin, any skin imperfection on that layer will also be removed. Skin imperfections such as uneven skin pigmentation, fine line, wrinkles and sun damage may be effectively treated with Microdermabrasion.
Consulting with a skin care specialist is the best way to determine if Microdermabrasion is the right treatment option for you. Contact our office to schedule your consultation today.
One of the growing trends in Plastic Surgery is the Mommy Makeover. The Mommy Makeover is a varying group of rejuvenatory cosmetic procedures that many Mothers opt for after having children. The effects of child baring on the female form are not always kind and can’t always be reversed through the more traditional methods of diet and exercise. Breasts that have lost form, perk or fullness or mid-sections that have excess sagging skin, for example, will show little improvement from diet and exercise and will require surgical treatment to reverse. Mommy Makeover’s are catered fit each Mom’s individual goals but may include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck or liposuction.
You can learn more about the Mommy Makeover by contacting our office and scheduling a consultation.

We believe our results speak for themselves. If you are in the process of looking for a Plastic Surgeon, it can be overwhelming to know what to look for and ask. The first thing you’ll want to check is if they are board certified. Check out the Plastic Surgeon’s training and education and how long they’ve been a Plastic Surgeon in your area. These are all important things to know. True success in this business is marked by a patient’s satisfaction in the Plastic Surgeon’s work. The best way to asses this is by reading patient testimonials and viewing Before and After photos.
Before and After photos are very beneficial for prospective patients to look at. As you look at a Plastic Surgeon’s work, ask yourself if you would be happy with the results achieved in the photo. Keep in mind that each patient comes into the office with different sets of goals and needs, but if, in general, you feel positive about the results achieved, that is a good sign that that Plastic Surgeon may be able to achieve your goals. As always, it’s important to remember to have realistic expectations.
The skin around our face is one of the first parts of the body to begin to show signs of aging. This skin is delicate and can easily be marred by sun damage. One of the easiest way to achieve a healthy, youthful appearance by making sure your skin is in good condition.

Botox Injections have become increasingly popular since their first burst onto the market. Itís a way to achieve a more youthful, smooth appearance without undergoing drastic surgery. There is no recovery time and the entire process generally takes up only about 15 minutes time. With ease like that women can run out on their lunch break for a quick touch up as needed. The results will last you anywhere from 2 to 4 months.

At a certain point in all of our lives, the inevitable occurs our first signs of aging. From the heavy, low-sagging brown, wrinkles, and creases to fine lines and crows feet, the process is rarely something welcomed with open and enthusiastic arms. These changes to the face often make us look more tired and rundown than we feel inside. To counter these changes, there have been many surgical and non-surgical treatments available over the past few decades, but none as non-invasive or high-tech as Ulthera.
Ulthera utilizes the 50+ year technology of the Ultasound to identify the loose tissue below the skin. Next, Ulthera sends sound waves, or energy, to the specified area. This energy heats to lifts and tightens the loose skin without disturbing the quality of the surface skin, but this initial tightening is just the first effect of the Ulthera treatment, the second of which is that it stimulates your body’s creation of new collagen which will continue to help your skin achieve and maintain that smoother, more youthful appearance.
A relatively quick treatment, the procedure takes only about 30-60 minutes with initial results visible immediately and final results visible in the following months as your body responds to the collagen growth. Ulthera cannot replace the major transformations surgical treatments offer, but for those experiencing the earlier signs of aging, Ulthera can be a wonderful treatment which requires no recovery period and can rejuvenate your skin to keep it looking healthy and beautiful.
To learn if Ultherapy is right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation.
Pregnancy, weight loss, nursing, and gravity all take their toll on our breasts, working to pull them downwards and seeming to almost deflate them. Women unhappy with the downward pull their breasts seem to be going in, may opt for a Breast Lift. A Breast Lift is a procedure which removes excess, sagging skin by creating an incision around the areola, and the remaining skin is sutured together creating tighter, firmer, more perky breasts. If you are already happy with the size of your bust, a Breast Lift alone may be enough to give you the results you seek.
For some women, however, a breast lift alone may not create the outcome they want and a Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift may be the right answer. These procedures can be done in conjunction with each other. Read more about Inland Empire Breast Lifts and take a look at our Before and After Photo Gallery of patients who have received Breast Lifts with and with out implants. When you’re ready, contact us for your personal consultation with Dr. Andreasen.
