Helping women and men feel better about themselves is what motivates Dr. Lisa DiFrancesco. The highly trained surgeon uses her artistic talents to turn bodies into works of art.
Did you always know you wanted to be in this field?
Yes, I did. Medicine, more specifically reconstruction and plastic surgery, allows for the opportunity to help people while also being artistic and creative. That is why I wanted to be in this field.
What’s the one thing that makes you stand out from the competition?
I have specialty training in aesthetic and oculoplastic surgery beyond what most plastic surgeons receive.
How do clients usually respond when they see the benefits or results?
They are absolutely thrilled and some even cry with happiness because we have corrected something that may have bothered them for a very long time.
What are the most common procedures you perform for clients over the age of 40?
- Mommy makeover. This is a combination of cosmetic procedures that restore your prepregnancy appearance. While there are many versions of a mommy makeover, a typical makeover might include a tummy tuck, breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction), and liposuction of the legs, arms, and stomach.
- Breast lift/augmentation. This allows women to have fuller, larger, or more proportional breasts.
- Abdominoplasty. Also known as a tummy tuck, this procedure can flatten and firm your abdomen.
