These procedures exemplify the commitment of the Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery to provide a comprehensive range of services designed to help people get more out of their lives.

Post-bariatric Plastic Surgery

Bariatric surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years, as the many health benefits of weight loss are better understood. Obesity is linked to many serious health conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure, and losing weight is usually the first and best course of action to take against these conditions. However, many people become discouraged when they find themselves left with the extra skin and tissue that once contained the excess weight they worked so hard to lose. In most cases, post-bariatric plastic surgery is the only reliable way for people to eliminate these reminders of their previous selves and fully enjoy the benefits of their healthier lifestyle.

In essence, post-bariatric plastic surgery is a combination of multiple body contouring procedures designed to remove leftover skin, fat, and tissue from all over the body after massive weight loss. Each patient’s treatment incorporates a different collection of procedures and must be planned individually, but some common treatments include liposuction, breast lift, tummy tuck, and also thigh and arm lift surgery.

Post-bariatric plastic surgery is one of the most complex and demanding procedures a cosmetic surgeon can perform. Dr. Yenikomshian offers post-bariatric plastic surgery at his San Jose practice to help individuals who have successfully lost weight achieve a complete physical and personal transformation, opening the door to a healthier, more attractive body contour.

Reconstructive Surgery

When many people think of plastic surgery, they think only of cosmetic procedures such as facelift surgery. An important part of Dr. Yenikomshian’s work, however, is reconstructive surgery. There are many reconstructive procedures, from scar revision to breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Using advanced plastic surgical techniques, the doctor can help those who have been disfigured by injury or illness to reclaim their appearance and their lives.

Surgery for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and sometimes debilitating medical condition in which an important nerve in the wrist is compressed. The true cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is not well understood, but there is treatment available. Dr. Yenikomshian can relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome by splitting a ligament in the hand to relieve pressure on the nerve. Carpal tunnel surgery is highly effective and requires only small incisions on the wrist or palm. Most patients recover within a week or two and are able to return to their normal work.
