Breast Procedures

Many Upper Valley patients choose Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery for their breast procedures. Some women are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts, often due to volume loss related to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or the natural aging process. Others may feel uncomfortable with disproportionate breasts, feeling like their breasts are too large or too small for their frame. We also see patients for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or lumpectomy. Some women choose Mountain Lake Plastic Surgery for their breast procedures because they feel more comfortable with a female plastic surgeon. During a consultation, we’ll carefully evaluate the breasts and recommend a surgical plan that will achieve your aesthetic goals for a youthful and proportionate look. 

Your Upper Valley breast procedure options include:


Body Procedures

Despite a healthy diet and exercise routine, many people struggle with stubborn areas of fat or excess skin that disrupt the body contour they want. This is especially common as you age or after pregnancy or weight fluctuations. If these issues start to affect your self-confidence, body contouring procedures are available to create the appearance you want. During your consultation with us, your concerns will be evaluated, and a personalized treatment plan will be created to achieve your ideal results.

Your body plastic surgery options include:


Facial Procedures

Over time, it’s normal to see signs of aging including sagging or drooping skin and wrinkles or fine lines. These changes can make patients look tired or angry and affect self-esteem. Dr. MacLennan and Dr. Schmidt offer surgical and non-surgical options which can reduce sagging skin or wrinkles for a lifted, rejuvenated, and youthful look.

Patients who are concerned with the appearance of their ears, jawline, or eye area can also choose surgical or nonsurgical facial procedures to improve their confidence while still maintaining a natural look. Whether you are interested in making permanent changes through surgery or trying injectables like dermal fillers or Botox, we can help you achieve the results you want.

Your facial procedure options include:

  • Submandibular liposuction
  • Facial fat grafting
  • Deep chemical peels
