- Abdominal surgery (hernia, back pain, etc.)
Breast Surgery (neck and/or back pain, reconstruction, overly developed male breasts, etc.)
Ear Surgery (to correct ear deformity, either due to birth defect or disease)
Eyelid Surgery (when lids obscure vision, etc.)
Facial Surgery (deformities, paralysis, etc.)
Hand Surgery (deformities, carpel tunnel syndrome, nerve and/or tendon injuries, etc.)
Nasal Surgery (birth defects, disease, injuries, or conditions which may affect breathing, etc.)
