Liposculpture

Liposculpture
, also known as high definition liposuction, is a newer surgical procedure which slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improves the contours, curves and proportion of the body.  The procedure is also known as tumescent liposuction, suction lipectomy or suction lipoplasty and is usually performed using tumescent local anesthesia and mild sedation. 

Abdominoplasty

Abdominoplasty
, commonly known as a Tummy Tuck, is the repair and tightening of the abdominal wall with elimination of excess skin, fatty tissue and stretch marks, creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.  Most often associated with pregnancies, significant fluctuations of weight, and prior surgeries, even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging.  Since a flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control, a tummy tuck is often necessary when these methods alone cannot achieve these goals.  The surgery is designed to restore and flatten the natural abdominal contours, and is often combined with other body contouring procedures such as high definition liposculpture.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Brazilian Butt Lift
or Buttock Augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure designed to increase the fullness, roundness and projection of the buttocks.   The surgery consists of two procedures performed together to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks using the patient’s own fatty tissues.  The surgery is designed to remove and contour areas of localized fullness or fatty deposits of the torso and thighs, and use this tissue to create more beautiful contours and fullness of the buttocks.  In addition, the patient obtains improved contours of the waist, hips and thigh areas with enhancement of self-image and self confidence.  The surgery uses only tiny incisions less than 1/8th inch in size to harvest fatty tissues and transplant the fat cells to the breasts.

Thigh lift

Thigh lift Surgery
 reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.  Commonly used for patients who have had significant weight loss, it can also be employed for patients with lesser amounts of skin excess or soft tissues asymmetries of the thighs.  Also, if fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved the goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to one’s overall body image, a surgical lift may be the best choice. 

Arm lift (Brachioplasty)

Arm Lift Surgery,
also known as Brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the upper arms.  Arm lifts are perfect for the patient who wants to get rid of saggy skin and fatty tissues that become droopy on the arms as well as to tighten and smooth tissues of the upper back and armpit region. The surgery is designed to tighten and smooth the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.  Over time, the supporting structures in the upper arm become loose and begin to droop away from the underarm region.  This can result in hanging skin and soft tissues, often referred to as a “bat-wing” deformity.  Not only is the excess skin and soft tissue removed with the surgery, the tissues are re-suspended and contoured to their natural youthful appearance.  The final result is a tight smooth arm, lifted and contoured upper back and tightened axilla (underarm or armpit).  The procedure may also include high definition liposculpture to further enhance the final contours.

Scar and Trauma Revisions

Scar and Trauma Revisions
are procedures designed to improve the appearance of aesthetically unappealing scars or deformities.  They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.  Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with the surrounding normal skin tone and texture.  The available options vary widely, and depend on the number, type and complexity of the deformities.
