The back lift is a surgical procedure designed to smooth the lower or upper back by eliminating excess fatty tissue. A smooth, sculpted line to the back can improve a patient’s shape under clothing, undergarments, and swimwear.
The body lift is a surgical procedure designed to improve the upper or lower body, regaining a more youthful physique. The lower body lift consists of a circumferential or belt line incision. From here, excess skin and fat are eliminated, and the remaining tissue is lifted taut. The lower back, abdomen, flanks or ‘love handles’, and buttocks will see dramatic improvement with a body lift. Alternatively, an upper body lift can significantly benefit the upper back, arms, and waist.
Hyperhidrosis is excess or abnormal sweating in areas like the armpits, hands (palmar), face, under the breasts, and on the feet. Regular antiperspirants are typically unsuccessful at treating these areas. Botox is highly effective in treating hyperhidrosis and provides an 82-87% decrease in underarm sweating and 80-90% in palmar sweating. Botox interrupts or blocks the chemical messenger that turns on the body’s sweat glands. The shallow injections are safe and effective for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. Botox gives patients who sweat excessively meaningful and long-lasting improvements (4-12 months) and enhances the function and quality of their daily life.
The Brazilian Butt Lift both raises tissues along the buttocks, as well as rounds and firms the same area using a fat transfer. Unwanted, excess, sagging skin is removed, while the existing tissue is lifted for a more proportionate backside. The outpatient procedure will result in a contoured, shapely bottom.
Brachioplasty, also known as an arm lift, surgically reshapes the soft, inner portion of the upper arm between the underarm and the elbow. Extreme fluctuations in weight, hereditary conditions, or age may cause excess loose and sagging skin on the upper arms, sometimes referred to as “bat wings.” Brachioplasty surgery removes this heavy, lax, voluminous skin and provides patients with sculpted and shapely upper arms. Each arm lift is personalized to suit the patient’s goals and may be combined with liposuction to further enhance the upper arm and shoulder area by emphasizing a more youthful or muscular appearance.
Silicone implants may be combined with fat grafting during calf augmentation to restore definition and increase the shape of the lower legs from all angles. Men and women who are embarrassed to wear shorts, skirts, or swimsuits because of the appearance of their lower legs may benefit from calf augmentation surgery. Calf implants are performed on one or both legs to create symmetry, emphasize the size of the calf, provide a more proportionate calf, assist bodybuilders in attaining larger calf muscles, or restore a defect caused by an accident, birth condition, or disease.
The fat grafting procedure utilizes unneeded fatty tissue, contacted from elsewhere on the body, to improve the volume and shape of the features. This cutting-edge technique allows for fat to be safely removed from a donor area, such as the thighs, buttocks, or lower back, then gently treated and injected into a target area. The fat graft will add volume to the cheeks, below the eyes, the jawline, and to the back of the hands; restoring a youthful contour.
Large, misshapen, or stretched labia majora can cause discomfort under clothing and during sexual activity. An unusual appearance can also cause embarrassment and shame. The Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure designed to rebuild an aesthetically pleasing labia by removing or reshaping tissues. Whether caused by the aging process, childbirth, or genetics, a Labiaplasty can create proportionate, attractive labia.
Liposuction has been providing patients with exceptional body contouring results for many years. By removing pockets of excess fatty tissue, the target can be contoured to an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Liposuction involves only a small incision, so scarring is minimal. Liposuction is safe and effective. The technique can be performed alone, or it may be used in conjunction with other body sculpting procedures, for excellent results.
The set of surgical procedures, known as a Mommy Makeover, has been designed with the new mother in mind. After pregnancy and childbirth, women will often see a change in the shape of their abdomen and breasts. Exercise and diet do little to restore the pre-baby body. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of a breast lift, tummy tuck, body lift, and liposuction, although additional procedures can be added for a personalized treatment plan.
Thigh lifts are performed on adult men and women to reshape the inner or outer thighs, improve the appearance of stretch marks, contour the thighs, and emphasize smooth, firm skin. Liposuction is typically performed to remove excess fat and sculpt the thighs. However, a thigh lift is needed if the patient has sagging skin caused by poor elasticity, which is the skin’s ability to tighten after being stretched. Thigh lift surgery is a popular option for individuals with heavy, sagging skin and excess fatty tissue on their upper legs after substantial weight loss.
The tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to smooth and tighten the stomach. Through an incision, running above the pubic bone, from hip to hip, excess fat and lax muscle is removed. The remaining tissues are lifted and tightened to create a sculpted abdomen. The tummy tuck can be personalized for a variety of needs, and includes different techniques such as the full tummy tuck and mini tummy tuck. It can be performed alone, or in combination with other rejuvenating procedures, to restore a youthful body.
During childbirth, as well as the normal aging process, vaginal tissues can become lax and stretched. The vaginal rejuvenation procedure can combat these changes through a combination of the Labiaplasty and Vaginoplasty. These techniques are designed to recreate an aesthetically pleasing labia, as well as snug, taut vaginal walls. Vaginal Rejuvenation can restore a woman’s confidence, comfort, and sexual pleasure.
