Vancouver Plastic Surgery by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

At 8 West Cosmetic Surgery, we believe that we can create the best outcomes by specializing. That is why we have plastic surgeons that specialize in either the face or the body.

 

FACIAL PLASTIC SURGERY

It is with great pleasure that we introduce the founder of 8 West Clinic. Dr. Thomas Buonassisi is a Board Certified Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon in practice for 15 years. He specializes in cosmetic surgery of the face, eyes, neck & nose.

 

Rhinoplasty

Also called nose job surgery, rhinoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure to change the size or shape of the nose. Refinement rhinoplasty, typically for patients who want to reduce the size and refine nasal features, consists of techniques such as hump reduction, tip rotation, and tip refinement. Augmentation rhinoplasty is for patients who desire a more prominent or defined nasal bridge or tip, while alar base reduction if often done at the same time to narrow nostrils.

 

Facelift and Neck Lift Surgery

Facial rejuvenation is a very important field of aesthetic medicine, with more and more people deciding they want to look as good as they feel as they age. Facelift surgery has come a long way, and Dr. Buonassisi specializes in the most modern techniques, from mini face lifts to short incision facelifts to long incision face & neck lifts. Unique to our practice is our ability to address aging skin (which isn’t improved with a facelift) and aging facial structures (such as jowls, bands, extra sagging skin) with a comprehensive approach that involves surgical and non surgical treatments.

 

Eyelid Surgery & Eyelid Rejuvenation & Forehead Lift

Sagging upper eyelids and pockets of stubborn fat can make us look older than we feel. With upper eyelid blepharoplasty, Dr. Buonassisi carefully removes extra skin and fat. Incisions are hidden inside the natural upper eyelid crease and are nearly imperceptible once healed. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is customized to the patient’s anatomy and with several techniques available including the scarless transconjunctival approach. Low or drooping eyebrows are sometimes involved and a browlift can reposition brows to a more youthful and elegant appearance.

 

Double Eyelid Surgery

Roughly 50% of people with Asian ancestry are born without upper eyelid creases. Dr. Buonassisi specializes in both the incisional and suture techniques. Adding a natural looking crease to the upper lids creates the illusion of larger eyes and produces more eyelash show.

 

BODY PLASTIC SURGERY

Breast implants are one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Colin White Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, specializes in cosmetic surgery of the breast and body, and will help you assess which type of breast implants are best for you. Breast implants are often done at the same time as a breast lift. Tummy tuck surgery reshapes a lax and large abdomen, with some techniques repositioning the belly button and others leaving them intact.
