An Attractive and Proportional Physique
Some bodies are stubbornly resistant to natural toning efforts (e.g., a clean diet and regular exercise). Additional factors such as aging, pregnancy, nursing and significant weight loss can compound the problem and lead to unwanted fat, loose, saggy skin and a generally unappealing shape.
Patients that want to attain an attractive physique but cannot do so through diet or exercise are encouraged to explore surgical body contouring options with Dr. Mark H. Schwartz. The goal of body sculpting procedures is to refine areas of excess skin and fat and produce a slimmer, sleeker figure.
The following procedures can be performed individually, or combined for comprehensive results:
Tummy tuck is a comprehensive solution for a protruding abdomen with saggy skin. It is popular among mothers who are unhappy with pregnancy-related changes in the abdomen, and individuals that have lost a significant amount of weight, but still have cosmetic problems in the midsection.
The surgery collectively addresses localized fat deposits, loose skin and separated/weakened abdominal muscles. Depending on their location, stretch marks may also be eliminated by tummy tuck. The waist looks narrower, and the abdominal profile looks slimmer after tummy tuck.
Liposuction is a safe and effective method of reducing targeted areas of excess fat from the body. This fat reduction technique is commonly performed on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, hips, back and upper arms. Although it produces a slimmer and more attractive contour in the treated area, liposuction is not intended as a weight loss procedure. It is most effective on active individuals that can maintain their improved figure with a healthy lifestyle.
Arm lift improves the look of saggy, flabby upper arms. The procedure removes excess skin and tightens the remaining skin; liposuction can also be incorporated to eliminate excess fat and refine the overall contour of the arm.
Thigh lift is ideal for individuals with excess skin and fat on the upper thighs (or saddlebag area). The procedure removes excess skin and fat and reshapes the underlying tissue to create a smoother and firmer contour.
Mommy makeover is a term for a combination of plastic surgery procedures that address post-pregnancy changes to the body and breasts. Mommy makeover is tailored to the individual patient’s specific needs, but can include any combination of the following:
