Tummy Tuck – USA Plastic Surgery

Almost everyone who undergoes a significant, dramatic weight loss is going to have some amount of excess, sagging skin left over. Excess, sagging skin around the abdomen is also common in women who have had multiple pregnancies. It can be an emotionally traumatizing thing to deal with and can destroy confidence, as well as hinder fashion choices. People who are in good health and have been at a stable, healthy weight for at least 6 months, and who have excess skin around the abdomen are generally good candidates for Abdominoplasty.

Abdominoplasty is a procedure to remove the excess skin around the abdomen. There are several varying types of Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, procedures depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. One thing to keep in mind when considering an Abdominoplasty procedure is that the scar from this surgery will be permanent, but most plastic surgeons work hard to ensure that it will be easily hidden by most undergarments or swim wear.

Arm Lift Surgery

There are a couple of factors which may lead to a person seeking out surgical treatment to improve the contour of their arms. Most common factors include individuals who have gone through a dramatic weight loss and are now left with excess sagging skin under their arms, and very often all over their bodies. Another common factor is people who have difficulty toning their arms due to pre-determined, genetics which can cause pockets of fatty cells in the arm area which are resistant to diet and exercise. Both of these groups of people can be helped through Brachioplasty.

Brachioplasty, or Arm Lift Surgery, is a procedure in which excess skin is removed. In cases where stubborn pockets of fat are also an issue, Liposuction is often used in conjunction with Arm Lift Surgery to provide the best results. For those with sagging, excess skin on other parts of the body, as well as under the arms, an Arm Lift Surgery may be done as a part of a whole Body Lift procedure to improve the contour of the body as a whole by removing excess skin.

Locate a doctor in your area today to find out if Arm Lift surgery could be for you.

Is Liposuction for me?

Liposuction, sometimes called Lipoplasty, is the term used to describe a surgical procedure that literally sucks or vacuums the fat out of your body. A truly ideal sounding solution to many, but there are several things to considering seriously before make your decision to undergo Liposuction. The first of which is understanding if it is the best option for you. You will need to asses your health and your expectations.

Ideal candidates are in good health and have been at a stabilized weight for an extended period of time. You should also not be a smoker. In most cases, the ideal situation for Liposuction is someone who has an overall healthy diet and has tried exercise to eliminate their problem areas with little to no results. Liposuction is a great option for those stubborn fat deposits that can be hereditary and difficult to overcome with diet and exercise.

Ideal candidates should also not expect perfection from the procedure. Liposuction will not give you a new body, it can only give you a thinner version of your own. It is best to discuss your goals with your Plastic Surgeon to find out if they are attainable through Liposuction.
