See a slimmer you with the world’s #1 non-invasive, non-surgical fat-reduction procedure! CoolSculpting is a patented and FDA-approved treatment that literally freezes away excess fat cells and helps you get rid of them forever.
CoolSculpting is for women and men who want to get rid of stubborn bumps and bulges once and for all. It’s designed specifically for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. If you’re in good health and within 30 pounds of your ideal weight, but still struggle with certain areas of excess fat, it may be the solution you’ve been seeking.
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a “tummy tuck,” removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightens the abdominal wall muscles. The best candidates have pockets of fat or loose skin that haven’t responded well to diet and exercise. Women with stretched or pooched abdominal areas due to previous pregnancies can also benefit considerably from abdominoplasty, although they should have completed their childbearing.
Individuals who have lost weight or have excess skin from aging can experience a dramatic improvement in their abdominal area. The procedure can potentially reduce or even eliminate a protruding abdomen, especially in the thin patient who has little abdominal fat and works out frequently. A tummy tuck will leave a permanent scar between the hips and low on the abdomen, although it is usually very low and easy to cover with a swimsuit or underwear.
Brachioplasty is the surgical re-contouring of the arms. The procedure is usually reserved for patients who have excess arm skin that hangs from the upper arm, especially after major weight loss. Two types of brachioplasty are performed in our office. The hidden incision technique hides the scar under the arm in the armpit but results in only a moderate improvement to the arm contour. The traditional incision technique involves an incision from the elbow to armpit along the bottom of the arm.
Although the incision is visible with sleeveless or short-sleeved shirts, this technique yields far better results and more dramatic improvements in the arm contour. We attempt to hide the incisions as much as possible by putting them on the inside and backside of the arm.
Liposuction, or the surgical removal of fat by suction using fine cannulas, is now one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy,” liposuction sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas around the thighs, buttocks, waistline, hips, abdomen, back, chin, neck and/or upper arms.
The tumescent technique and the super-wet technique are among the various techniques used to provide precise results. Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but the procedure can eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight-loss methods.
