Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
An abdominoplasty is a procedure that restores the contour of the abdomen, correcting the deformities brought about by pregnancy or weight loss. There are several types of abdominoplasty, but all require suture tightening to flatten and narrow the abdominal wall. Skin that is loose or damaged by stretch-marks is removed through a scar in the lower part of the abdomen, in the bikini line. Liposuction may be added to remove fat deposits and improve waist contour.
Liposuction or Liposculpture
A liposuction or “liposculpture” the body contours are sculpted by removing fat deposits under the skin. These deposits tend to accumulate in the neck, upper arms, waist, hips and buttocks. In men, fat tends to accumulate in the lower part of the chest, the abdomen and the flanks or “love handles”.
Flat or underdeveloped buttocks can be frustrating to men and women. Recent trends in body image favor more curvaceous, voluptuous buttocks. At the Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Rodriguez Terry performs buttock augmentation using the autologous fat technique. In this procedure, your own fat is harvested using liposuction, prepared, and injected into the buttocks using tiny incisions.
The body lift is indicated in persons who require rejuvenation of multiple body areas, including thighs, buttocks, back, and abdomen. Bariatric surgery patients and persons who have lost a large amount of weight usually have severe skin redundancy and are candidates for this surgery. Persons with severe laxity because of aging and gravity may also be candidates for the body lift. Remarkable rejuvenation of the lateral thighs, back and abdomen are obtained by lifting and removing the sagging tissues, often in combination with liposuction.
Upper Arm Lift
The upper arm lift is a procedure that will reduce excess skin from the upper arm. This sagging extra skin may be due to aging, genetics or weight loss. The patient will come out of surgery with a slightly hidden scar in the armpit.
A surgical procedure women opt for after pregnancy or of older age. This procedure reshapes the inner lips of the vagina making it look rejuvenated.
