Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
Abdominoplasty is a procedure to contour the abdominal wall often performed after major weight loss surgery and pregnancy. These factors can leave the abdominal muscles and skin stretched causing a “pouch” that will not improve without surgery. Our plastic surgeons will take out the excess skin and fat, tighten up the abdominal fascia to give you a flatter, more contoured look.
Liposuction can be applied to many parts of the body such as the chin, neck, thigh, buttock, arm, trunk, and abdomen. Our plastic surgeons examine your body type, fat distribution and skin type to determine the best approach to give you the greatest result. Since we specialize in body contouring, we look at the whole body and try to work with you to remove unwanted and excess fat. We have also refined the use of liposuction to help rejuvenate the neck and chin for both men and women to eliminate the “double chin”. With the abdomen, liposuction can help get rid of extra fat or “love handles”.
After a bariatric procedure or simply from the effect of aging, the skin on the upper arms can become elastic, loose and flabby. An Arm lift combined with liposuction can often help remove that excess skin and fat of the upper arms. Arm lift surgery will help tighten the loose skin of the arm.
A thigh lift is performed to remove excess skin and fat from the thigh. Candidates typically suffer from loose, inelastic skin after diet, exercise or bariatric surgery. At Beauty and Body Contour, our surgeons often perform this procedure in combination with breast lifts, facelifts and arm lifts to retain an attractive body contour.
