Our Services

Facial Rejuvenation
We understand the importance of feeling confident. Your face is the visual essence by which people remember you, and it's no wonder you want to look the best you possibly can. When you feel good about your face, you feel more confident and self-assured. Unfortunately, some of the most immediately visible signs of aging occur here, from drooping eyebrows and eyelids to sagging skin throughout the face. Loyola has years of experience offering the latest in aesthetic facial services, ranging from rejuvenating eye lifts to rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), otoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the ears), rhytidectomy (facelifts) and brow lifts.

Reconstructive Services
Among the many reconstructive procedures offered are treatment of skin diseases and skin cancer; scar revision; breast reconstruction or reduction; treatment of facial deformity, disease and trauma; correction of nasal or ear deformities; and treatment of tumors of the bone and soft tissue.

Body Contouring
We offer a broad range of services in lipoplasty (liposuction), augmentation and reduction mammoplasty (breast augmentation and reduction) and abdominoplasty (tummy tucks). We also offer extensive body contouring for people who have lost a great deal of weight. If you're looking to target specific areas or improve your overall physique, our body contouring services may be the right solution for you.

Skin Renewal
From comprehensive scar revision to hair removal, to the use of facial fillers and botulin toxin treatments, Loyola offers a complete set of services in cosmetic skin care. In addition, we can treat cosmetic imperfections associated with some skin diseases. Consult with our physicians to get specific answers to your case and see if we can help.

Leg Vein Treatments
We put an enormous amount of strain on our legs every day. In addition, other circumstances such as pregnancy, occupations that require long periods of standing, and heredity can put intense pressure on the veins. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, from unattractive varicose veins, to advanced problems such as skin discoloration and skin ulceration in the legs. Our physicians are experts in the latest treatments, including vein ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy and injection sclerotherapy. Whether you require laser treatment or surgical removal, we are highly qualified in the treatment of varicose veins.

Specialty Services

Plastic surgeons specializing in hand surgery correct finger deformities, such as Dupuytren’s contracture, trigger finger, extra digits and webbed fingers. They also treat hand and forearm wounds, tendon and nerve injuries, hand fractures, vascular injuries of the hand and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Pediatric Plastic Surgery/Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Team
Plastic surgery treatments for children include repair of cleft lip or cleft palate; removal of tumors, cysts and birthmarks; and reconstruction of congenital deformities of the ear, nose and trunk.

Wound and Burn Treatment
Management of acute and chronic complex burns is provided, as is reconstructive burn treatment.
