A Range of Breast Procedures
Breast plastic surgery is one of our most common procedures at Island Plastic Surgery. However, breast procedures aren’t interchangeable for one another. We provide an array of distinct operations with the goal of making you look and feel your best. You might choose one of the following operations:

Breast Augmentation: Also known as breast implants, this procedure is designed to increase the size of the breasts, making them appear more symmetrical, or rebuild a damaged breast.
Breast Lift: If you’re unhappy with breasts that appear to sag, a breast lift could be the solution for you. This procedure is also useful for stretched skin or nipples that point downward.
Breast Reduction: Sometimes, we struggle with breasts that are too large and cause neck and back pain. The team at Island Plastic surgery can reduce their size in women as well as men struggling with gynecomastia.
Breast Reconstruction: If your breasts have been damaged as the result of an injury or disease, we can help rebuild your bust.
Numerous Body Procedures to Choose From

Body procedures are also common practice at Island Plastic Surgery. Our team is well-equipped to provide well-known operations as well as some more obscure procedures. We mainly perform the following procedures:
Tummy Tuck: Those who receive this procedure come away with a firmer and slimmer belly. Our team removes any excess skin and repairs loose muscle.
Liposuction: If you have hard-to-get-rid-of fat in certain areas of your body, liposuction may be an excellent solution. We also offer Lunchtime Lipo for our patients with a tight schedule.
Body Lift: This operation involves sculpting the entirety of the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks. It combines a tummy tuck and thigh lift with a buttocks procedure.
Regain Your Confidence with a Face Procedure

Facial procedures are widespread and known for making patients appear younger. At Island Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gallagher and her team can perform a range of face procedures, including:

Face Lift: We can reshape your face through tightening the skin and muscles in the face and neck. Most often, facelifts are used to treat sagging, deep creases, and jowls.
Neck Lift: This procedure gives better definition to the neck and jawline. Neck lifts can be performed through minor surgery or several injections over a number of days.
Rhinoplasty: Nose surgery involves reshaping a crooked or misshapen nose. We work with patients whose concerns are cosmetic, as well as those struggling with a birth defect.
Eyelid Surgery: Take years off your appearance with eyelid surgery to remove bags. We also use this procedure to correct drooping eyelids and excess fat.
Brow Lift: Dissatisfied with your eyebrows? A brow lift raises heavy brows and erases frown lines that cause a perpetually angry expression.
Ear Surgery: This operation sets the ears back closer to the head and can also be used to reduce the size of your ears. Ear surgery is often performed on children to correct asymmetrical ears.
Facial Fat Grafting: This procedure uses fat from other parts of your body to correct concerns such as thin, flat, plump, or asymmetrical face.
Improving the Face and Skin Non-Surgically

The team at Island Plastic Surgery also offers plenty of non-surgical procedures to meet your cosmetic goals. Our procedures geared toward the face and skin include everything from fillers and injectables to facial and chemical peels. We also offer BBL, Radiofrequency, Fractora or Ultherapy services. You have plenty of options when it comes to improving the quality of your skin and the appearance of your face. Simply consult with our staff to learn which is best for your needs!

What Kinds of Plastic Surgery Do You Perform?
At Island Plastic Surgery, we have expertise in a wide variety of procedures. Our team is capable of performing face procedures such as facelifts and rhinoplasty, as well as buttocks procedures, breast lifts, and much more. Our services page can provide you with more information on the kinds of operations we perform at our clinic.

Am I a Good Candidate for Surgical Procedures?
As with any complex medical procedure, there are good or bad candidates. When it comes to plastic surgery, most people in good general health are good candidates. However, you should always be upfront with Dr. Gallagher and our team about your medical history and any preexisting conditions. We want to ensure your plastic surgery is as safe as possible, and this information gives us the knowledge to protect your health and overall well-being.

How Safe is Plastic Surgery?
Surgical procedures such as breast augmentations, brow lifts, and tummy tucks are complicated. Because of their complexity, many of our patients worry that plastic surgery isn’t safe. Although all surgical procedures come with some degree of risk, Dr. Gallagher will give you pre- and post-surgery instructions to ensure optimal results. So long as you follow these directions, plastic surgery is generally very safe.

What Should I Do to Prepare for Plastic Surgery?
Preparation for plastic surgery will depend on what kind of procedure you’ve scheduled. Liposuction, breast implants, and more all have fairly simple preparation. You’ll need to set up a consultation with Dr. Gallagher to go over the details of the procedure itself and how to properly recover. Patients speak with nurses and other health professionals about their medical history so they can be aware of potential complications. Dr. Gallagher will spend as much time as needed to make sure you, the patient, are educated about the procedure and all it entails.

How Can I Minimize the Risks of Plastic Surgery?
Beyond heeding your doctor’s instructions and being forthcoming about your medical history, there’s more you can do to ensure your safety during and after the procedure. Firstly, you should refrain from smoking in the six weeks leading up to the surgery. You should also avoid taking non-prescription supplements, such as vitamins and herbal products. Aspirin and other medications may also need to be discontinued as not to increase bleeding, but consult your doctor before stopping use.

Will I Be Under Anesthesia During the Surgery?
Whether or not you’ll be awake depends on the surgical procedure. For some procedures, patients need only a local anesthetic with sedation. Yet other patients need general aesthetic while undergoing plastic surgery. The team at Island Plastic Surgery will make sure you understand how long you’ll be under anesthesia for your procedure.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?
The exact length of your recovery time depends on the procedure and how you personally react to it. Some people need more recovery time than others. In general, you can expect to take at least one week off work to relax and promote healing. Dr. Gallagher and her team will let you know the specifics of your face or body procedure.

Does Insurance Cover Plastic Surgery?
Most plastic surgeries for cosmetic purposes, such as tummy tucks or body lifts, aren’t generally covered by insurance policies. However, if you need reconstructive surgery, like breast reconstruction or breast reduction, you may be covered. The team at Island Plastic Surgery can help you determine what’s covered, or you can call your insurance provider directly to inquire.

Dr Gallagher and her team are kind, helpful and knowledgeable. I felt as though I was in the best of hands. My surgery went amazingly well and I couldn’t be happier with the results! I’m going back for other procedures even though I moved to another state. I wouldn’t go anywhere else! Thank you Dr. Gallagher :)

Adrianna R.

As a cleft patient, I have seen Dr. Gallagher for various reasons throughout my life - cleft lip and palate correction, bone grafts, and rhinoplasty. Most recently, I saw her for lip fillers to help out with the asymmetry which is natural with a cleft lip. Not only was she able to correct it, but she answered all of my questions and was EXTREMELY gentle. I highly recommend her as well as urge you to consider someone with her level of experience. Thanks again, Dr. G!

Annamarie H.

I saw Dr. Gallagher unsure of what I really wanted to achieve I just knew my eyebrows were so uneven and wanted to do a Botox brow lift.. we ended up correcting that and adding some filler in my top lip and I couldn’t of been happier with the results. She is very knowledgeable and makes you feel extra informed about what she will do and why!

Kristen G.

I highly recommend this place. Best facials and wouldn't trust anyone else to inject Botox or fillers in me. They are very knowledgeable and do a great job! Can’t wait to go back!

Carrie B.

I just want to say thank you to Dr. Pamela Gallagher. She is very professional and knowledgeable. I told her about my past experience with another Doctor that I had seen & how uncomfortable I was & how absorbent the cost was . She spent the time to explain what she was going to do and what my budget was for that day. She continued to inform me to what is best for me in regards to my wrinkles & restoring the damage & discoloration from the sun !! Dr. Gallagher made me feel so comfortable & confident enough so that I will never go anywhere else !!! I’m so excited for my micro needling in a few weeks !!  Thank You again Dr Gallagher & Staff.
