A back lift works to contour the upper and lower back, removing excess skin and fat. This procedure is often advised after significant weight loss to tone and slim the torso. Skin elasticity is addressed in those patients suffering from the unwanted side effects of the aging process, pregnancy or poor genetics.
Body contouring after massive weight loss
If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, congratulations! This is a big achievement. However, there may be some side effect of the process, such as unwanted skin folds that hang down and obscure your new, thinner physique. Body contouring after massive weight loss can help you to look and feel better, and enjoy a higher quality of life.
The fat transfer process takes donor fat cells from an area of the body where they are unwanted, such as the back, waist, thighs, hips or stomach, and injects them into an area where they will bring desirable enhancement, such as in the breasts or the buttocks. Since the fat is from the patient’s own body, the procedure is highly tolerated by most clients and results are typically very successful.
Liposuction is one of the most safe and popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States. Every year, thousands of clients experience the relief of body sculpting through the liposuction method. During treatment, excess unwanted fat is suctioned out through a slender metal tube known as a cannula, streamlining the torso for a more attractive and toned look. Dr. Shermak applies augmented technologies like Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) during surgery to optimize smooth contours and reduction of fat.
For those women who seek to reclaim their pre-pregnancy physique while uplifting their self-image and self-confidence, the mommy makeover is the ideal procedure, correcting sagging, shrinking breasts, an ill-shaped belly, and the wear and tear of stress on the facial expression. Through a combination of strategic cosmetic procedures, harmony and beauty are restored to the breast, body and face.
To contour and slenderize the thighs, a procedure known as a thigh lift is performed. This treatment works to remove excess fat and skin, creating a tighter, more toned appearance to the upper legs. This procedure is desired by two primary populations: those who have lost significant weight; or women who have lax thigh skin who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their thighs in shorts, skirts or athletic wear.
If you are looking to slenderize and contour the abdomen and regain a more youthful abdominal appearance, a surgical tummy tuck will achieve your cosmetic goals in a long-lasting way that few other options can hope to match. An abdominoplasty will tighten the six-pack muscles, while excising excess skin and possibly adding fat removal and contouring through liposuction.
Upper arm lift
An upper arm lift, also referred to as a brachioplasty, can contour flabby, loose skin that has lost its shape due to the aging process or significant weight loss. Excess skin and fat is excised from the area, resulting in a more shapely and youthful aesthetic. This lift may be extended to include the side of the chest wall to remove flabby tissue that gets in the way of smooth contours when wearing bathing suits or fitted tops.
As the aging process continues, many areas of the body change. A woman's labia is no exception. Sometimes stretching and extending, discomfort during everyday activities such as riding a bike, having intercourse or doing yoga can occur. Pregnancy may also play a part in distorting the female vaginal region.
Male Body Contouring
Men are great candidates for Body Contouring Procedures. The most popular – in addition to surgery on the chest area, called Gynecomastia – include Liposuction, Tummy Tuck and Massive Weight Loss Bodylift procedure.
