Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

It can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.

Here’s the difference between the two.

Reconstructive Surgery

Reconstructive surgery procedures repair structures of the body affected aesthetically or functionally due to things like traumatic injuries, birth defects, developmental abnormalities, burns or scarring, and are generally done to improve function & ability, but may also be performed to achieve a more typical appearance of the affected structure.

Experiences at Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics

Experience Lethbridge Plastic Surgery

Here is some of the feedback we’ve received from patients who have had experiences at Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics.

“First off, let me start by saying Dr. Secretan is amazing! He is definitely the best! I trusted him the moment I met him. He is very detailed, honest, and genuinely cares about his patients. He is relatable and personalizes what you need and want. His team is just as great! I am beyond happy and in love with my results! I am two months post-op and I feel and look amazing! I did it all; a complete mommy makeover. As busy and on-demand as Dr. Secretan is, I feel very, very lucky I had him as my surgeon! I am forever grateful for this life changing experience. I wouldn’t have picked anyone else to do this. Thank you and thank you to all of your dedicated staff!”

“Dr. Secretan is an excellent plastic surgeon. I recently had a procedure done and he did a great job. I would highly recommend this clinic. I had my surgery done in their on-site surgical suite which is well equipped, clean, and bright. Thanks to all the staff for a job well done and for making me feel comfortable.”

“Dr. Secretan is amazing! I had been suffering with carpal tunnel, in my right wrist for many years. He performed release surgery just over 4 weeks ago. I’m healing amazingly… and I have full feeling back in my fingers, and you can barely tell where the incision was made!”

“Dr. Secretan and his staff were amazing in all instances in which I required services and surgery. I had a large lump removed from my forehead, non malignant fortunately, and the surgery was quick and efficient. Furthermore, there is virtually no scaring as the wound was properly addressed which is a good thing considering the high viability of the location. In addition, I have had laser hair removal and other laser skin treatments performed on my face that have been extremely successful. Probably the best part of the experience has been the front office staff and the considerate attitude of both Dr. Secretan and his medical team. Strongly recommend this Doctor for both cosmetic and laser surgery.”

Thank you to the many of you who share your kind words! We’re so happy to hear you are happy with the results and all doing well and are so appreciative that you chose Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics!

Reconstructive Surgery

Breast Reduction and Breast Reconstruction Following Mastectomy

IMG 0033

Dr. Secretan is a highly skilled plastic surgeon in Lethbridge, Alberta with extensive training, experience and a special interest in reconstructive surgery. Through communication and his advanced surgical skills, he is committed to helping patients achieve the results they desire in order to restore function, confidence and self-esteem.

The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore one or both breasts to near normal shape, appearance, symmetry and size following mastectomy, lumpectomy or congenital deformities.

While mastectomy is a traumatic experience for any woman, breast reconstruction is an alternative for women of any age whose health is well enough to tolerate a general anesthetic.

Breast reconstruction generally falls into two categories.

  1. Implant-based reconstruction
  2. Flap reconstruction

Implant reconstruction relies on breast implants to help form a new breast mound. Flap (or autologous) reconstruction uses the patient’s own tissue from another part of the body to form a new breast.

Making a decision about breast reconstruction can feel daunting. When working with us, Dr. Secretan will discuss risks and benefits to help you determine the best options for reconstruction.

Here’s what one of our patients shared with us about her experience:

“I had reconstructive surgery following a double mastectomy performed by Dr. Secretan. I think we can all agree that this is a very emotional, painful and terrifying situation. Dr. Secretan made every step of the process as pleasant as possible. I cannot imagine having a different doctor under these circumstances, and I truly believe fate stepped in to make sure I got exactly who I needed to get the optimal results. He is VERY pleasant to be around. Straightforward, but always kind, and highly skilled. I am forever grateful for the care I received and would absolutely recommend him to anyone and everyone.”

Before and After Dermal Fillers for Tear Trough Correction

Tear Trough

Tear trough deformity is a major concern in a lot of individuals seeking periorbital rejuvenation. A prominent tear trough deformity is characterized by a sunken appearance of the eye that results in the casting of a dark shadow over the lower eyelid, giving the patient a fatigued appearance despite adequate rest.

Tear trough injections are one of the most challenging areas to treat safely and well with dermal filler.

Before Dr. Secretan performs nonsurgical treatment for tear trough correction, it’s important for him to evaluate the following factors:

✔ Skin quality. Patients with thick, smooth skin will have better results than those with thin extremely wrinkled skin.

✔ Definition of the hollow, as a more defined hollow is more amenable to fillers.

✔ The orbital fat pads. Larger fat pads are more difficult to correct due to ‘puffiness’ caused by the injection.

✔ The color of the overlying skin. The filler may improve shadowing but will not improve dark pigmentation.

The volume injected varies from patient to patient and overcorrection should be avoided.

Overcorrection, too superficial injections, and choice of an inappropriate filler may lead to unacceptable aesthetic results.

We want you to love your injectables. Our understanding of facial anatomy helps us to determine where to and where not to inject. And that means better results for YOU! At Lethbridge Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, we’re committed to providing you with the best.
