Body Contouring

Body contouring operations are effective for reshaping tissues after massive weight loss, pregnancy, or in genetic or congenital abnormalities. As a rule, body contouring operations trade scars for a better appearance. However, scars often heal very well, and often the resulting body shape is worth the effort.

Discussion of the location of scars as well as the correct procedure for you is very important. Please schedule a consultation to discuss these issues.

Abdominoplasty (“Tummy Tuck”)

Abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) is a form of body contouring operation where excess skin and fat are removed through an incision below the underwear line. This may involve an incision around the belly button as well. The best abdominoplasty results are obtained when an individual is close to their ideal body weight.

A panniculectomy is similar to abdominoplasty, but performed for medical reasons and with important differences which often result in less cosmetic improvement.

 

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty addresses enlargement of the labia majora and minora (“outer lips” and “inner lips”) of the female genitalia to improve discomfort with exercise, clothing, and sexual activity. Click here for more information and a gallery of before and after photos.

 

Liposuction

Liposuction, or suction lipectomy, is a technique to remove fat cells using suction and cannulas through small access incisions. Liposuction is most effective at small, discrete fat collecitons, and is not an effective weight-loss technique. Click here for more information and a gallery of before and after photos.

Thighplasty (“Thigh Lift”)

Thigh lift (medial thighplasty, lateral thighplasty) is performed to remove excess skin and fat of the inside, outside, or both, aspects of the thighs. Along with other body contouring operations, this is often performed after massive weight loss. Different incisions with or without liposuction may be used as necessary to address problem areas. Click here for more information and a gallery of before and after photos.

 

Brachioplasty (“Arm Lift”)

Brachioplasty, or arm lift, deals with the problem of excess skin and fat around the armpit, upper arms, and forearms. Click here for more information and a gallery of before and after photos.

 

Scar Revision

Reconstruction of complex wounds often involves plastic surgery. These wounds may occur anywhere in the body, and may require a variety of surgical techniques for healing. Medical optimization of wounds before reconstruction is critical, and may involve frequent appointments with your primary care physician or wound clinic before undergoing surgery.
