Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is a popular procedure used to flatten and shape the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin and tightening muscles. The best candidates for this procedure are persons in good physical condition with pockets of fat or loose skin that have not responded well to traditional diet and exercise.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure used to remove localized areas of fat from the body through a small thin tube called a cannula. The fat from the targeted area is suctioned from the body through this tube to help patients achieve a slim and balanced appearance. New technology has allowed for different techniques to improve the accuracy and reduce the pain associated with this procedure.
If you want to enlarge or reshape your buttocks, buttock augmentation may be the solution for you. Buttock augmentation or lift contours the buttocks and compensates for low amounts of fat in the area. Women and men who enlarge their bottoms can enjoy a more voluptuous and perky profile. Buttock augmentation with fat transfer is also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Thighplasty or thigh lift is performed to tighten the skin of the thighs with the goal being to produce slim, contoured thighs that look proportionate to the rest of the body. Thighplasty may be performed alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures that slim the lower body such as liposuction.
It used to be that women were resigned to living with these natural changes in their bodies. Now, more women are seeking out plastic surgeons to rejuvenate their breasts and tummies to the youthful firmness they enjoyed before having children. These procedures are collectively called “mommy makeovers” or post-maternity breast and body reshaping.
Bariatric (weight loss) surgery has caused many individuals to meet their BMI goals and develop healthier lives, but it has also created the need for much of the body contouring necessary from weight loss. As individuals metabolize their fat, they begin to not only weigh less but also occupy much less physical space.
Many women suffer from enlarged labia minora, the inner genital lips. Some may not like the appearance of their large uneven or thick labia, which can sometimes extend beyond the labia majora. Others may be bothered by labial irritation while conducting normal activities or may find it difficult to keep the labial area clean. Still others may experience pain during sexual intercourse, sports or other vigorous activities. Labiaplasty reduces large labia or reshapes uneven labia improving their appearance and reducing associated discomfort.
