There are a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures available that allow anyone the ability to contour their body. Some of these procedures can be especially beneficial for those who have lost a lot of weight. When someone is overweight, the skin stretches to accommodate the extra weight. When someone loses weight, it often results in having lots of excess skin. For some, this excess skin can get in the way of an individual being able to live life to the fullest.
While losing weight is a common reason why someone would want to invest in a non-surgical procedure, some body types are just resistant to change. Those who fit into this category appreciate that they have the option to contour their body using cosmetic surgical procedures, which can help them get the body they desire.
While living a healthy lifestyle is the best way for anyone to attain the appearance they want, everyone is born with a certain body type. Thus, one procedure may not work as well for a specific individual as another. By scheduling an appointment, we can help determine which procedure will produce the desired change.
Liposuction is the surgical removal of excess body fat. While choosing to eat the right foods and exercising can often work for many people, there are people who seem to be immune to these techniques alone. Thus, cosmetic surgery can be the answer to achieving the body weight a person desires. Specific body types have pockets of fat that simply choose not to respond.
Since fat tends to accumulate more often in the stomach, hips, thighs and buttocks, these are the more common areas that people choose to remove unwanted fat. Any scarring is minimal as only a small incision is necessary to remove the fat. The end result provides patients with a smoother, more defined body.
Those who are dealing with excess skin after losing a lot of weight, after giving birth or from getting older often wonder what their choices are when it comes to removing this excess skin. Also called abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a plastic surgery procedure that removes both excess fat and excess skin, allowing for a reshaping of the tummy area. A tummy tuck can also help to restore weak stomach muscles, ultimately creating a firmer tummy. Those who are interested in getting a tummy tuck need to be in good overall physical health, which includes not being a smoker and being average in weight.
A brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure that helps to remove extra arm skin so it does not sag. Two reasons why the upper arm area skin sags or droops is due to large weight loss and aging. We can remove this excess arm skin to ultimately smooth out the appearance of the upper arm. Since the upper arm area is prone to localized pockets of fat, an arm lift is a popular plastic surgery option for those who want smoother arms.
Arm lifts are also helpful when it comes to finding clothes that fit. When choosing arm lift surgery, patients can expect the surgical process to take about two hours on an outpatient basis. We will go over the details of this procedure during a consultation and determine if the procedure is right for the patient’s needs.
Also called a lower rhytidectomy, a neck lift is an option that can help to improve the overall appearance of the neck and jawline area. As people age, the face and neck areas will start to sag, creating looseness in the skin. While this is indeed part of the natural aging process, many people would like to remove a double chin or the jowl lines. A neck lift is often the perfect answer.
A surgical thigh lift is a cosmetic procedure that removes the excess skin and fat from the thigh area when someone loses weight. Removing any extra skin and fat from this area will either prevent or reduce any sagging in the thigh area, allowing for more proportional legs.
A thigh lift can also address the issue of poor skin elasticity by tightening the skin on the thighs. The thigh area is an area of the body that can be difficult to change even when living a healthy lifestyle. Thus, the thigh lift is a popular cosmetic procedure for anyone interested in changing their image.
The buttocks can become saggy or droopy as people begin to age or after losing a lot of weight. Thus the buttocks lift is a common and effective cosmetic surgery option. A buttocks lift is able to remove any excess skin and fat in the buttocks area that allows for the tighter, smoother skin.
Many people have the goal for tighter skin in that area of the body when wanting to improve their overall appearance. In order to be a candidate for this type of cosmetic surgery, one must have a sagging, drooping, misshapen or flat bottom and be in good overall health.
According to Cosmetic Surgery Associates, there has been a large increase over the past 10 years when it comes to mothers looking into their cosmetic surgery options. Both pregnancy and childbirth can have quite the effect on a woman’s body. When dieting and exercising are not able to deliver the expected results, there are other options. Now that there are many options available for countering the body, moms have the ability to restore their body to post-pregnancy days.
