Available Procedures

Dr. Kayastha has extensive experience performing a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures. He performs several types of cosmetic breast surgery — including breast lift, breast augmentation, and male and female breast reduction — to improve the size, shape, and position of the breasts. Dr. Kayastha offers liposuction and body contouring procedures to remove unwanted fat and excess skin and repair the supporting tissue structures, for a slimmer contour throughout the treatment area. The Albany plastic surgeon also performs earlobe repairs and skin cancer removal.

In addition to the available surgical procedures, Dr. Kayastha offers nonsurgical cosmetic treatments for patients who don’t yet need or who would like to postpone more invasive procedures or for those who would like to optimize their aesthetic results from surgery. His nonsurgical treatments include BOTOX Cosmetic to temporarily suspend muscle movement, thereby smoothing out the overlying wrinkles. He also offers injectable fillers to fill in, and thus smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Finally, Dr. Kayastha provides several skincare treatment options, such as a Fractional laser to reveal fresher, healthier skin; improve tone, color, and texture; and reduce large pores. Fraxel also helps improve the appearance of some scars, even extensive or difficult scarring, such as acne or burns.
