People choose to undergo cosmetic surgery for a multitude of reasons. Some people want to restructure a part of their body they’re unhappy with, while others want to enhance a feature they’re proud of. Whatever the reason, you can rest easy knowing that IBI Healthcare Institute will have you looking and feeling your best. Whatever the procedure, we offer an unequaled level of professionalism and care that will set your mind at ease and give you that boost of confidence you’re looking for. Dr. Angelina specializes in a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures for people of all genders that go beyond traditional surgical methods by treating patients holistically – mind, body, and soul.
We can perform several of the procedures we offer on an outpatient basis. This saves our patients the cost of hospital admission and enables them to spend the bulk of their recovery in the comfort of their own homes. The amount of time spent at our facility will depend on what type of procedure you’re scheduled for but could range anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. We understand how busy our patients’ schedules can be and we aim to offer top-quality services without a lengthy procedure and recovery. Eliminating an extended wait time, prolonged procedure, and long-lasting recovery at the hospital saves our patients money and time, while still affording them exceptional services and care.
Motherhood is a beautiful thing and while pregnancy can be a wondrous and joyful occasion, it can also be tough on your body. Sometimes, no matter the amount of dieting and exercise, a post-pregnancy body is never the same. Some issues mothers may face include stretchmarks, sagging or loose skin in the stomach area, different breast sizes or shapes following breastfeeding, and stubborn fat in the midsection or upper thighs. Some common procedures in our mommy makeovers include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast lift or augmentation. Because every woman is different, our mommy makeovers are tailored for each woman based on her needs.
Wrinkles, sagging skin, and discoloration are a normal part of aging. As we age, we lose collagen and muscles in our face, which can cause the skin to sag or become droopy. The skin also becomes less elastic and can turn gray due to less blood flow. While a facelift can help you appear younger, sometimes it’s not necessary to undergo such an extensive surgery. A Vampire Facelift can give you similar results without going under the knife.
Because our skin thins out as we age and we tend to lose facial fat, it can cause wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck. A facelift can help to reduce wrinkles, smooth sagging skin, and give you a more youthful appearance.
Botox Cosmetic injections can help rid you of crow’s feet and other facial lines such as frown lines and forehead lines. It’s a simple outpatient procedure that is safe and effective. The way it works is Botox temporarily relaxes the muscles in your face, which enables it to become smoother. Botox has become a popular option because it’s safe, easy, and affordable.
Some women choose to enlarge or change the shape of their breasts because it’s something they’ve wanted to do for years. Others noticed a change in their breasts following childbirth, weight loss, or simply with aging. No matter what the reason, IBI Healthcare Institute understands it’s a personal decision and takes the utmost time and care to discuss the various options with patients who choose to undergo a breast augmentation procedure.
Breast implants can help shape the breasts, make them more symmetrical, and enlarge them. The best candidate for a breast augmentation procedure is someone who is healthy and isn’t pregnant or breastfeeding. It’s also important the breasts be fully developed. Dr. Angelina will meet with you before surgery to discuss various options, explain the procedure, and discuss your medical history. During the consultation, you will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the procedure.
Heartburn and Acid Reflux Surgery
Acid reflux is when a build-up of stomach acid flows back into the esophagus. This can cause heartburn and other issues. If it’s chronic, it’s called GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease. GERD not only interferes with quality of life because it’s uncomfortable, but it can cause other serious complications if left untreated. IBI Healthcare Institute offers reflux surgery to repair or replace the valve at the bottom of the esophagus when medicines don’t work.
What is GER (Acid Reflux)?
Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) happens when your stomach contents come back up into your esophagus. Stomach acid that touches the lining of your esophagus can cause heartburn, also called acid indigestion.
Does GER have another name?
Doctors also refer to GER as:
- Acid Reflux.
- Acid Indigestion.
- Acid Regurgitation.
Weight loss surgery is a major life decision and shouldn’t be taken lightly, but if you feel like you’ve exhausted all other dieting and exercise options and nothing seems to work, it may be time to consider bariatric surgery.
According to the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, if you have a Body Mass Index over 40 or are more than 100 lbs considered a higher-weight person, or if your BMI exceeds 35 and you have other obesity-related issues such as Type II Diabetes, you may be a good candidate for bariatric surgery.
Weight loss is achieved through surgery by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band, by removing a portion of the stomach, or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouch.
Long-term studies show Bariatric Surgery can cause significant long-term weight loss and recovery from diabetes, it can improve cardiovascular risk factors, and prolong your life.
For patients not too keen on surgery, our offices offer non-invasive Gastric balloon options.
Tubal Reversal Center
For various reasons, some women who have undergone tubal ligations to protect against future pregnancies find themselves regretting their decision. IBI Healthcare Institute offers tubal ligation reversal for women who have undergone tubal sterilization, which offers them the potential to have children again. During the surgery, a patient’s fallopian tubes will be restored to their natural function. About 80 percent of women who undergo a tubal reversal become fertile again. This is an outpatient procedure and is done laparoscopically, so it’s less invasive. During the procedure, the surgeon will unblock the fallopian tubes and then reattach them with a very fine suture. Patients who are younger than 40 years old, have three or more inches of healthy fallopian tube remaining following tubal ligation and originally had their fallopian tubes blocked by clips, rings, or minimal burning, experience the most successful tubal ligation reversals.
A tummy tuck effectively tightens stomach muscles that have stretched due to pregnancy or weight gain. The procedure removes excess fat and skin and can restore weekend or separated muscles. A good candidate for abdominoplasty is someone healthy and in shape but has stubborn loose skin and excess stomach fat following a pregnancy or weight loss. A tummy tuck can also remove some, if not all, of the stretchmarks on the lower abdomen. Most patients who undergo this procedure report improved self-esteem as a result of the surgery.
Vein and Vascular Surgery
Varicose veins are a common condition, but they can be bothersome and even hinder your confidence when wearing a bathing suit or shorts. Varicose veins can also cause other complications such as blood clots or skin ulcers if left untreated. We offer vein and vascular surgery that’s minimally invasive and can help eliminate those painful, bluish veins.
Access Center Dermabrasion
Dermabrasion can improve the look of facial skin that’s been scarred by an accident, previous surgery, or acne. It can also smooth out fine facial wrinkles such as frown or smile lines. Dermabrasion refinishes the top layer of skin, which is done by controlled surgical scraping. The procedure can even out the skin and remove any irregularities, such as pre-cancerous growths or sharp edges, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth.
A hernia is when an organ or other tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a muscle or connective tissue. A hernia can cause discomfort, severe pain, and other serious complications if left untreated. If a hernia is small, surgery may not be necessary. But if you cannot push it back, it is crucial to correct the hernia to avoid complications such as strangulation. It occurs when a hernia traps the intestines and cuts off the blood supply, which can be a very serious condition. We offer minimally invasive hernia repair surgery for patients.
The gallbladder is a small organ located under the liver in the upper-right region of your abdomen. Its job is to help your body break down fat from the food in your intestines. The gallbladder delivers bile to the small intestines to help do this. Patients who suffer from gallstones or gallbladder pain often require surgery. If left untreated, gallstones can cause the backup of bile, which can cause nausea, fever, pain, and vomiting. During surgery, we can remove gallstones. However, if the stones are a recurring problem or are very large, we can remove the gallbladder.
