Changing the body’s appearance is often times more involved than just eating a well balanced diet and exercising regularly. Sometimes even the strictest of diet and exercise regimens are not enough to eliminate fatty tissues stored in the body. We offer many different safe, effective procedures that will assist you in achieving your desired results. Talk to the doctor during your initial consultation about your body contouring options.
Interactive Procedure Guide
A body lift, also known as a belt lipectomy, is a procedure that helps raise and reshape unsightly, sagging body contours. This procedure is designed to remove loose skin and related fat deposits. A body lift can be applied to the lower torso and upper legs including the abdomen, waist, inner/outer thighs, buttocks, and/or hips. Liposuction may also be completed in conjunction with a body lift.
Whether you’d like to lose a few pounds in traditional areas — your waist, thighs and bottom — or finely sculpt your arms, neck or chest, VASER Lipo can help give you the results you want. Using a technique called LipoSelection®, VASER Lipo targets specific areas of the body. Ultrasonic waves help break up and separate fat cells for removal, while leaving vital tissues unharmed.
Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that uses lasers to help create a new, smooth skin appearance. The laser “ablates”, or destroys, the outer layers of skin which have been damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems or spots. The destruction of the older layers of skin prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells which are unaffected by the previous skin condition.
Liposuction is a body-sculpting procedure to remove fat that is unresponsive to dieting and exercising. This procedure can be applied to nearly any area of the body and is commonly used on multiple areas during an operation. Liposuction can be used effectively to reduce love handles, saddlebags, a double-chin, a bulge around the waistline, or other unsightly fatty deposits in order to develop a better shape.
Sometimes simply dieting and exercising are not enough to take care of waistline problems. In such cases, a patient may wish to consider a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is the surgical removal of excess skin or fatty deposits from the abdomen, along with the repositioning of abdomen muscles into a tighter formation. This bodily enhancement procedure is designed for those who wish to have a flatter and tighter stomach.
