Cosmetic Surgery

Whether it’s for medical or personal reasons, or combined with another procedure, St. Joseph’s Women's Hospital works with Tampa Bay’s finest surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is a combination of art and science, and may change or improve some aspects of a patient’s appearance or body function. Often, people seeking cosmetic surgery are concerned with their facial appearance, body image or signs of aging.

Cosmetic surgery is generally considered elective surgery, but there are medical reasons for having cosmetic surgery as well. Certain medical conditions can cause problems that may be improved or repaired by cosmetic surgery.

Some common cosmetic surgeries performed at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital include:

  • Chin (mentoplasty)
  • Breast enlargement (augmentation mammoplasty)
  • Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty)
  • Eyelid (blepharoplasty)
  • Face-lift (rhytidectomy)
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Reshaping of the nose (rhinoplasty)
  • Stomach (abdominoplasty)
