The Consultation 

 

The goal of a consultation is to evaluate the patient’s concerns and to educate patients about the options they have to achieve that goal of improving their appearance. Dr. Brennan’s bedside manner is exceptional. His approach is “Designer Surgery” addressing the specific patient’s conditions (not one size fits all) to achieve the best possible result. During the consultation, the surgery, recovery, recuperation and possible complications are thoroughly discussed.

The Cosmetic Procedures Offered at Dr. Brennan’s Newport Beach facility 

 

Hair Restoration

 

Receding hairlines, thinning hair, and baldness can be psychologically devastating to both men and women. Neograft is a safe, simple, non-surgical procedure that works wonders in hair restoration. This is an office procedure with no scar and minimal discomfort. 

 

Dr. Brennan has a long history in hair restoration and has designed instruments for this procedure. He was also the first to introduce the JURI hair flap to this country. He also designed the hair lowering procedure. 

 

Facial Rejuvenation

 

Dr. Brennan’s approach to restoring a youthful appearance is based conceptually on three factors. One is to reverse signs of aging which will respond only to surgery. Two is to use Botox to relax overactive muscles. And three is skin rejuvenation which reverses sun damage, pigmented skin and lined skin. He employs a very thorough approach beginning with the facial bones, the facial muscles, the facial fat and the excess skin. 

 

Dr. Brennan designed the hair sparing (no hair loss) procedure which results in a very natural appearance without tell tale signs. If you can spot a facelift it is not a good one. 

 

Dr. Brennan introduced the “Coronal Brow Lift” and also invented the “Smart Hand Technique” for brow repositioning and designed the non-endoscopic brow repositioning procedure and instrumentation. 

Rhinoplasty/Septoplasty – Nasal surgery is performed for function, shape or both. This is a very short, safe and predictably successful procedure. If a patient is having trouble breathing it is likely caused by a deviated septum. The septum is the wall inside the nose that divides the nose into two air chambers. It is normally straight and in midline. If it becomes misaligned, causing a crooked wall, known as a deviated septum, it can cause severe obstructed nasal breathing. Dr. Brennan uses a conservation technique to realign the septum. (a procedure that he designed). Another common cause for nasal obstruction is enlarged turbinates. Another procedure that Dr. Brennan designed is a Conservation Turbinate Reduction. 

 

Dr. Brennan introduced the closed – “Open” technique to change the shape of the nose. This procedure illuminates outside incisions and visible scars. He designed a nasal suction device that is used during surgery that illuminates the need for any nasal packing. Rhinoplasty is performed to create a straight, defined, more attractive nasal appearance. 

 

Facial Implants

 

Bones create beauty. If we look at any handsome or beautiful face, invariably we see a well defined, strong bony framework. Patients who did not inherit this natural beauty are excellent candidates for a variety of facial implants which were designed by Dr. Brennan. These implants are placed surgically through tiny inconspicuous incisions. The implants are permanent and safe. Implants can create remarkable improvement in facial skeletal framework to create beauty. 

 

Lip enhancement

 

Full well defined lips are a cardinal feature of facial beauty especially in women. Many people are born with natural beautiful lips but oftentimes people don’t inherit well defined lips. Dr. Brennan designed an upper and lower direct lip enhancement procedure. This is a very safe and simple procedure that can be performed in an office setting under local anesthesia. This procedure defines the “cupid’s bow” of the upper lip and a better defined lower lip. This procedure is oftentimes combined with indictable fillers to create a more voluptuous appearance. 

 

Chest Lift

 

Part of the aging process often occurs in the décolleté – the V in the upper part of the chest. This very often occurs in conjunction with signs of aging lower neck. Face and neck rejuvenation is easily accomplished but the aging upper chest needs to be addressed separately to achieve a harmonious result. When a patient has an aging chest, whether it is due to excess skin or sun damage, they become an excellent candidate for the upper chest lift. This is a procedure that Dr. Brennan designed that gives remarkable results with inconspicuous incisions. 

 

Breast Surgery

 

Women may elect to have breast surgery for three different conditions. One is to enlarge or enhance the size of the breast. Two is to lift a sagging breast. And three is to reduce an excessively large breast. 

 

Breast Augmentation

 

Breast Augmentation is performed by inserting a breast implant through a very safe, simple procedure. Women with small breasts are very self conscious and get tremendous satisfaction from having breast enhancement surgery. Various options are given to the patient during the consultation so that the patient, not Dr. Brennan, makes the decisions regarding the size, the placement, the type and the incision. 

Breast Lift. Women whose breasts droop which commonly happens after pregnancy can improve the position of the breast performing a Mastopexy or breast lift. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can literally be performed under local anesthesia. This does require a circle incision around the areola and an incision on the lower half of the breast which is known as the “lollipop” procedure. This incision may be visible temporally but usually heals in an inconspicuous manner and patients are extremely pleased with the result. 

 

Breast Reduction

 

Women who have excessively large breasts respond well to breast reduction designed to reduce the size of the breast. Because the breast is primarily fatty tissue, the safe, simple procedure is a liposuction reduction which is performed through a tiny incision. This simple procedure significantly reduces the potential for severe complications using the Open technique. Oftentimes one breast is naturally larger than the other and this technique is an excellent way to compensate for the difference in size to not only reduce the size of the breast but to create symmetry. 

 

Breast reduction in Men

 

Sometimes men develop excessively large breasts called Gynecomastia which means female breasts. Understandably this is a condition with tremendous physiological repercussions. Most men with this condition respond to the minimally invasive technique that is used in women, Occasionally a small incision may be necessary to remove some glandular tissue. This is a tremendously gratifying procedure both for the patient and doctor. 

 

Body Contouring 

 

Body Contouring is either enhancing muscle framework with implants or eliminating undesirable fatty deposits through Liposuction.  Body contouring is made up of both closed body surgery and open body surgery.

 

Closed body surgery – Liposuction

 

The body is a muscle framework that’s covered by skin and in between the skin and muscle there is a layer of fatty tissue. Sometimes there is excess skin and an abundance of fatty tissue. In our society there is an emphasis on fitness and both men and women strive to have as sculptured a body as possible. Sometimes in spite of diet and exercise, patients have excess skin and fat deposits. Body contouring can be accomplished to tighten excess skin and fat. This can be performed through a “Closed Technique” known as Lipo Sculpting. Liposuction is performed through tiny invisible incisions where the excess fat is mobilized and suctioned away to eliminate the fatty deposit between the skin and the muscle framework. This procedure can be performed on any part of the body including the neck, face, arms, back, waist, belly, thighs, legs and cankles. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a procedure that continues to grow in popularity and is the epitome of body sculpting where fat is removed from other parts of the body such as the belly, waist or back and transferred to the buttock region creating a more desirable contour and lifting of the buttocks. 

 

Open body surgery – Tummy Tuck, Arm Lift and Thigh Lift

 

Some patients develop excess skin in various parts of the body. This is very common in women after pregnancy and is especially common after significant weight loss. Excess skin of the body can be removed by performing Open Surgery which requires incisions that are strategically placed so they heal inconspicuously. This is a major factor in facial rejuvenation but is commonly used to perform arm lifts, tummy tucks and thigh lifts.
