Body Contouring / Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty: Due to aging, weight loss/gain, pregnancy, trauma, stress and general life our bodies slowly change over time. For many women and men this change can negatively impact how you feel about yourself and how you look. Body contouring procedures can help restore a more youthful and aesthetic body shape.

Abdominoplasty is the physician’s name for a tummy tuck. This surgery removes unwanted skin and fat from the lower abdomen. In some cases, the abdominal muscles also need to be tightened in order to reshape the area. This is especially common in women whose abdominal muscles have stretched due to childbirth. The result is a flatter, trimmer stomach.

What are the different types of body contouring procedures?


For both men and women, from your arms to your legs a number of different procedures are available to remove lax skin and tighten and smoothen your contour:

Liposuction

Used to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat which have been resistant to diet and exercise. In the properly selected patient, this technique can create a slimmer appearance in the stomach, thighs, arms, love handles, face, back, and breasts.

SmartLipo™

This type of liposuction utilizes a high-powered laser to make the fat removal process easier on the body and results in decreased downtime and stimulation of skin tightening.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck)

This procedure helps you remove excess fat and skin from the stomach area for
more toned abdominal appearance. It generally includes tightening of the lax abdominal muscles and liposuction of the abdomen and flanks. The goal of the surgery is to provide an aesthetic abdominal contour with smooth curves and fitting with the patient’s body by avoiding any obvious transition zone.

Mini Abdominoplasty (Mini Tummy Tuck)

The mini tummy tuck focuses on minimizing fat and excess skin in the lower abdominal region only. This procedure benefits individuals who have good abdominal contours with only minimal lower abdominal laxity.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy tuck)

This procedure involves a full abdominoplasty that is extended to wrap around the back removing excess skin and fat from the entire circumferential torso. This provides a smooth abdominal and back contour while also elevating the buttock and lateral thighs.

Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

This procedure involves fat and skin removal from the upper arms to improve the tone and contour. This can be accomplished with excision alone or combined with liposuction. In order to camoflague the scar, the incision is placed so that it is only visible with your arm straight up in the arm but not with your arms relaxed at your sides. Individuals who benefit from this has significant upper arm skin and fat excess that can be both physically and mentally distressing.
