Body Contouring

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty, commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, is a major surgical procedure that will remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and tighten the abdominal muscles. This procedure is designed to give you a smoother, flatter abdomen. It is particularly effective in removing stretch marks from the lower abdomen, but should be understood that not all stretch marks can be totally eliminated. This procedure is most commonly performed in women following multiple pregnancies or major weight loss. Men with localized fat accumulation, and excess skin of the abdomen may also benefit from this procedure. Abdominoplasty incisions are usually made just within or above the pubic area and around the naval. These incisions are kept to a minimum and fade over time.
Liposuction can be recommended in conjunction with the tummy tuck in order to achieve better aesthetic results.

Liposuction

Liposuction or liposculpture permanently removes localized fatty deposits through tiny incisions to give you a smoother and slimmer body contour. This procedure has been designed to target and treat fat deposits which cannot be controlled by diet or exercise. Liposuction is effective in removing fat from the neck, arms, flanks, abdomen, hips, thighs, saddlebags, buttocks, knees and ankles. However, liposuction cannot eliminate cellulite, or correct loose hanging skin. This procedure is most effective in patients with good skin elasticity. If you have good skin tone, it is more likely that your skin will respond to surgery. Depending on the extent of the surgery it can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
A compression garment is worn after surgery to reduce swelling.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfers can provide natural-looking, beautiful results using the patient’s own fat. This technique involves removing fat from one part of the body, such as the thigh area, and injecting it in the same individual in another part of their body. The advantage of using one’s own fat is that it is safe and non-allergenic. Facial fat transfers are designed to contour and fill in furrows, wrinkles or depressions. Fat transfers can enhance areas such as the lips, laugh lines, cheeks, nasolabial folds (vertical lines extending down the side of the nose) and marionette lines (lines at the corners of the mouth, that extend down vertically.) Another popular spot for fat grafting is the buttocks where it can produce a fuller and more youthful appearance. Most patients do need to come in for an additional treatment from time-to-time, but much of the fat that is transplanted will be permanent.

Mommy Makeover Procedures

A Mommy Makeover is simply a term for the combination of procedures that counteract the physical effects of pregnancy on a woman’s body. These procedures are often a tummy tuck, liposuction and a breast lift. Because each body and each pregnancy is unique, the recommended combination of procedures will be customized for that particular patient as well.
During pregnancy the breasts and tummy enlarge and the skin endures stretching causing a permanent change in shape. Older mothers may even notice a bigger change due to the loss of elasticity of their skin with age. Oftentimes women may notice that no amount of diet and exercise will restore their body to its pre pregnancy stage. Cosmetic surgery can address these changes and restore the flat profile of the tummy as well as the contours of the waist and breast. The results from these procedures help raise self esteem leading to a happier and more confident woman.

BBL(Brazilian Butt Lift) or Butt Lift Surgery(liposuction and fat transfer to the buttocks)

The Butt Lift Surgery has become an increasingly popular procedure. The overall shape of one’s rear end is mostly determined by genetics and difficult to change through diet and exercise. The Butt Lift surgery uses a person’s own fat that has been liposuctioned out from one or several other areas like the thighs, flanks or abdomen. This fat is then processed and purified before being reinserted into the buttock area to increase its size and/or give it the curves and fullness that may be desired for a youthful and more sensual appearance.
Athough some of the results of the Brazilian buttock lift surgery are immediately visible, the shape continues to improve over the next 3 to 6 months.
You may be a good candidate for the Butt Lift Surgery
-if you are unhappy with the shape and size of your buttocks
-if you are over 18 years of age
-if you are in good health and a nonsmoker
-if you are at a stable weight and have realistic surgical expectations
