When an important event is on the horizon, such as a milestone or the holiday season, most of us start thinking about our appearance. Choosing the right outfit and hairstyle for that special day is critical, but so is the look of the face and body. However, not every type of cosmetic treatment is the right fit for all patients. Rather, selecting the best procedure(s) depends on age, symptoms, and other factors. 

Your Best Treatment Plan With Dr. Sonny O

No matter which procedures you have in mind and what event you’re preparing for, Dr. Sonny O can craft the most appropriate customized treatment plan for you. A board-certified plastic surgeon with over 18 years of experience, he has the aesthetic eye necessary to create a strategy that addresses your concerns while ensuring it is safe relative to your medical history, allergies, and other patient-specific attributes.

After considering these details, Dr. Sonny O will study your symptoms and then recommend one or more procedures that would suit your needs. Of course, he will also discuss the best timing for your appointments to make sure that you look your best during the event itself.


Before that iconic photo of you walking across the stage and accepting your diploma, you probably want to ensure your face is camera-ready. If you’re experiencing an active acne breakout or sun spots, be sure to ask about our chemical peels. For acne scars, we have multiple non-surgical options with minimal downtime, including:

  • Dermaplaning
  • Dermal fillers
  • Microneedling
  • Laser skin revitalization


For some patients, getting ready for the ultimate day, your wedding, can be a matter of one or more of the non-surgical protocols listed above. If you’re in your late 20s to late 30s, you might consider dermal fillers to improve your facial contours and reduce any fine lines that may be starting to pop up.

Also around this age, some women are not satisfied with the size of the breasts and may be thinking of getting a breast augmentation or breast reduction. Remember, this will need to be discussed well in advance with Dr. Sonny O, so you have enough time to recover from surgery to allow for a proper dress fitting.


After having children, many women will notice changes to their bodies. If your family is complete, you’re done healing from your last pregnancy, and you’ve finished breastfeeding, now could be the perfect time for a mommy makeover to restore your youthful appearance.

The mommy makeover is a customized collection of procedures that can include both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic options. While the tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation/reduction tend to be the most common, we can add other facial and body therapies for qualifying patients.

Your Children’s Weddings and Beyond

Patients in their 40s to early 60s frequently want to correct issues of skin laxity, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and jowls, well before it’s time to stand for all those wedding photos with the happy couple. Dr. Sonny O might suggest the Timeless Lift™ to enhance and tighten the skin in less time with only local anesthesia. For more significant cases of aging skin, patients have seen incredible transformations from the:

  • Facelift
  • Neck lift
  • Brow lift (or forehead lift)
  • Eyelid lift (upper or lower)
