Liposuction / Liposculpture:
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, slims and artistically reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image. Brand name body procedures and alternative widely marketed technologies are to be avoided.
Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty:
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. We now have medications injected at the time to block pain for 3 days after surgery.
A bra line back lift improves the shape and tone of the back by removing fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed and the scar hidden under the bra.
Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss:
Body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin. Often this is limited to the fold of skin hanging down over the pubis. It is not a tummy tuck.
Also known as brachioplasty, an arm lift reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. Depending on the patient, either a liposuction or surgical skin removal with a scar can be performed.
A thigh lift improves the contours of the thighs and may be performed in combination with liposuction and other body lifts.
Statistics show the number of women getting “mommy makeover” body procedures is on the rise. Women had nearly 112,000 tummy tucks and 296,000 breast augmentations in 2010. These techniques are often performed together to reverse the effects of pregnancy on a woman’s body.
