Surgical Body Contouring Procedures
Some people are naturally blessed with an attractive and slender body shape. Others struggle to achieve their desired body contours with strict dieting and intense exercise. If you have struggled fruitlessly to improve your body shape on your own, it may be time to seek help. The following surgical body contouring treatments can enhance your silhouette and allow you to succeed in reaching your beauty ideals.
Liposuction is a popular body contouring procedure that can target stubborn fat deposits on many areas of the body. Your surgeon can selectively sculpt your body contours to create a slender, shapely appearance. Popular liposuction treatment areas are the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, upper arms, and under the chin. This body contouring procedure is best for patients who have good skin elasticity and a healthy body weight but are bothered by specific areas of stubborn fat. Those with stretched or loose skin should consider a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, or body lift as an alternative.
After losing a large amount of weight, many people are left frustrated by the loose, sagging skin on their now slimmer frame. Body contouring after weight loss helps create a more natural-looking silhouette by addressing excess skin. Ideal for patients who have achieved significant weight loss, a body lift tightens, reshapes, and tones the contours of the waist, abdomen, hips, and buttocks. Body lift surgery after massive weight loss can help you complete your journey for a new life and a new body.
“Bat wings” or sagging upper arms can make anyone feel self-conscious. Arm lift surgery removes excess skin and fat and tightens the tissues of the upper arm to refine its shape and contour. If you have poorly defined upper arm contours due to weight loss, aging, gravity, or genetic factors, an arm lift could help you once again have shapely and firm upper arms.
Like the upper arms, the thighs can accumulate excess flab and skin. A thigh lift can help individuals achieve leaner, smoother thighs. This procedure can remove excess fat and skin from the outer and/or inner thighs to improve their contours and firmness. Thigh lift patients often feel more confident in their summer clothing and more comfortable without excess thigh tissue rubbing together.
Stubborn belly fat, excess skin, and loose abdominal muscles are common due to weight gain, pregnancy, genetics, or even prior surgery. If your abdomen is a trouble zone, you can achieve a slimmer physique with tummy tuck surgery. This procedure tightens the abdominal muscles, removes excess fat and loose skin, and reshapes the abdomen so that it is firm, flat, and youthful. With a healthy diet, regular exercise, and avoidance of future pregnancy or weight gain, most tummy tuck patients can enjoy their smoother and flatter waistline for many years.
Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)
Many male patients can feel self conscious about having enlarged breasts. Fortunately, gynecomastia surgery can help create a more masculine chest with improved male contours. Your surgeon will remove fat and/or skin using liposuction, excision, or a combination of the two. Results are generally permanent and can significantly improve and create a more natural male chest shape. Most patients experience results that boost their confidence and improve their quality of life. due to your results.
Pregnancy can leave a woman’s body with unwanted long-lasting effects. If your post-pregnancy body has changed from its pre-baby shape, a Mommy Makeover can help you reclaim your figure. Where diet and exercise fail, a Mommy Makeover combines a customized selection of procedures to recontour your body. Usually comprising a combination of breast surgery, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery, your Mommy Makeover can dramatically enhance your overall figure, giving you a more youthful physique and a body you can love again.
