Paducah Plastic Surgery was founded in 2002 by Paducah plastic surgeon, Peter A. Ward, MD, FACS upon returning to practice following a sabbatical during which Dr. Ward studied and researched the aging process. The philosophy of Paducah Plastic Surgery reflects Dr. Ward's belief that the aging process is the natural result of a chronic nutritional deficiency and the body's attempt to deal with it. Patients wanting to look younger through surgery also learn that the aging process can be slowed by giving the body what it needs every day so that it can repair and replace itself, which it is already programmed to do.
We see patients becoming younger from the inside out by helping them nourish their bodies. Our approach to surgical rejuvenation is to give the patient a natural looking result that is real but not obvious. Our greatest triumph is when the desired improvements are obtained without others being aware the patient has had surgery!
We attract patients of all ages. We specialize in natural looking results.
Breast surgery is one of our specialties
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enlarge the female breast usually with an implant. Breasts may be small due to lack of development or changes following pregnancy, breast feeding, or weight loss. Breast augmentation improves physical appearance and, very often, self-esteem.
Traditionally implants, either silicone or saline, have been used. Various surgical approaches have been used, as well as variations in implant placement, shape, material and surface texture, to control some of the variables of using an artificial substance in the body. More recently, some surgeons are working to develop techniques of using the patient's own tissue (fat, for instance) to enlarge the breasts. This eliminates the problem of a reaction to a foreign substance.
