Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include: Continue reading Tummy Tuck
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.
If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you. Continue reading Thigh Lift
Smartlipo MPX Laser Assisted Liposuction
Smartlipo MPX works by heating the skin from underneath and melting away the fat and can be performed on almost all areas of the body. Along with body contouring, it offers significant skin tightening in a way that traditional liposuction cannot. This procedure requires only a few small incisions for the laser to be able to reach the fat cells under the skin. Through these sites the laser will be able to liquefy the fat cells while it is simultaneously cauterizing the area. This cauterizing minimizes the bleeding and bruising that one might have experienced with traditional liposuction. In fact, Cynosure’s Smartlipo MPX allows the patient little or no downtime.

A body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging skin and fat are removed and the procedure(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface, which is commonly known as cellulite.
A body lift may include these areas:
- Abdominal area – locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back area
- Buttocks that may be low, flat or shaped unevenly
- Groin that may sag into inner thigh
- Thigh – the inner, outer, or posterior thigh or the thigh’s circumference.
Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:
- Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward
- Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm
- Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region
Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise. Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.
