Although plastic surgery was not formally coined until the 20th century, the advancement of various plastic surgery services appears universally tied to one’s desire to look young. The first documented cases of plastic surgery dates back to over 3,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. The Egyptians believed that the face would be carried over into the afterlife and prepped their Pharaoh upon death to be received by altering his facial features. As civilization evolved, the practice of making changes on the face then spread to the body. Practitioners manipulated areas sustained by physical trauma like from war or defects acquired from disease and or birth. Legendary tales of a magical spring that could make one young again in the old world have been repeated for centuries. After Ponce De Leon failed to find the Fountain of Youth in 1513, medicine and science replaced lore to carry this field forward.
Over the last fifty years, various plastic surgery services rapidly advanced that most could not have envisioned. Also known as cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery is focused on restoring and improving upon a desired appearance on the face and body.

This cosmetic procedure removes or breaks up fat from various areas of the body like the stomach, thighs, buttocks and arms. By using a cannula (a thin hollow tube) topped with an aspirator (a suction device), the predetermined fat deposits are removed. It is important to note that liposuction is not a body weight loss procedure, it is used to remove unwanted fat deposits that are not affected by exercise or diet.
Liposuction procedures are discrete and contour the body to produce a desirable appearance.
This service relocates fat from one part of the body to another. The procedure is done in two stages that can be completed on the same day. Using liposuction, Dr. Erfani removes fat from an area of the patients body such as the buttocks, thighs or arms. The fat is then purified of blood and other impurities. Dr. Erfani relocates the fat to another part of the patient’s body that will be determined in their personal consultation. Areas that fat is commonly relocated to are the cheeks, temples, hollows of the eyes, lips, nose, breasts and buttocks. A fat transfer provides a wonderful solution to re-contouring the body as fat is removed from one area and moved to another. This results in a more youthful and shapely appearance.
This procedure, also known as Blepharoplasty, improves the eyelids. The procedure removes and re-positions excess skin tissues and fat that obscure the eyelids. Dr. Erfani re-enforces the corresponding muscles and tendons to correct droopiness, puffiness, and sagging skin most often associated with aging.
