Arm Lift
An arm lift or brachioplasty is a surgical procedure designed to remove unwanted excess fat and skin of the upper arms. It can be used to reshape the area extending between the underarm region down to the elbow. The procedure will address excess skin that has lost its elasticity or become weakened or time and localized fatty deposits. Overall the procedure is designed to:

  • Reshape the upper arm resulting in a smoother improved contour
  • Reduce excess skin and fat
  • Restore a more toned and proportional appearance to the upper arm

Heredity, increasing age or fluctuation in weight can lead to your upper arms having a drooping or even “bat-wing” appearance. Proper diet and exercise can strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone you have but it cannot address the excess skin and fat deposits that remain. One of the trade-offs you make for your improved arm appearance and contour is a scar along the inside of your arm.

Body Contouring
After a dramatic weight loss achieved by either exercise and proper nutrition, by medical treatments, or as the result of bariatric surgery many people are left with loose, sagging skin they are unhappy with. For some, after they have reached their goal weight, they find that they still don’t have the healthy body image or shape that they desire. For those people, body contouring surgery after weight loss, can be the answer. It can produce dramatic improvements for those whose weight loss has resulted in excess sagging skin of the face, arms, abdomen, back or legs. In general these surgical procedures can help to reduce remaining excess fat and skin that has developed in multiple areas of the body. These body contouring procedures can be the rewarding and final phases to having a healthier, more proportionate body that provides self-confidence and enhances your body image.

Liposuction
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2007 there were 302,000 liposuction cases making it the second most popular surgical cosmetic procedure. Generally speaking liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of your body by targeted removal of fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. Liposuction also referred to as suction assisted lipectomy, lipoplasty, power assisted liposuction, ultrasound assisted liposuction or liposculpture aims to remove unwanted excess fat. These techniques can be used to treat one or more areas of the body including:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Waist and flanks
  • Chin and neck
  • Inner knee
  • Upper arms
  • Breast or chest area
  • Calves and ankles
  • Back

Tummy Tuck
Abdominoplasty, more commonly known as a tummy tuck can help to flatten or re-shape the abdomen and waistline. This surgical procedure removes excess fat and skin to achieve a tighter and flatter abdomen. In some cases an abdominoplasty can also restore the natural position of the abdominal muscles by repairing these weakened or widened muscles. This creation of an “internal corset” can help to create an abdominal profile which is smoother and firmer, enhancing your appearance in and out of clothes.

Even those men and women with otherwise normal body weight can develop loose and sagging skin or a protuberant abdomen. Common causes of this are multiple pregnancies, aging, heredity, and significant changes in weight. The best candidates for this surgical procedure are those in good

medical condition, maintaining a stable weight but despite weight loss and/or an exercise program still have fat pockets or skin laxity.
