Body Contouring Procedures
Liposuction deals with the areas of the body where fats are usually stored, despite proper diet and exercise. It is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures. It creates remarkable changes to the body's contour by eliminating bulges of fat from different areas of the body, with negligible marks, a quick recovery time, and no changes to skin tone. This procedure is usually done with local anesthesia for small areas, and sometimes general anesthesia for harder-to-reach areas.
Is liposuction for you?
We offer several liposuction techniques, all of which minimize bruising and swelling for a relatively easy procedure on the patient.
Liposuction is not for people who are overweight or obese, as liposuction is a reshaping procedure and not a weight loss program. Candidates for liposuction need to have firm, elastic skin and need to be in good health. It is also suggested that the patients try to do away with their bulges through diet, exercise, and weight loss programs before considering liposuction.
Popular with women with loose skin tissue after pregnancy or with those who have sagging skin tissue following weight loss, the tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fatty tissue and skin to craft the muscle around the abdomen.
A total tummy tuck may take anywhere from 1 to 5 hours, while a shorter procedure, or a mini tummy tuck, may be done in 1 to 2 hours.
What tummy tuck procedure is better for you?
This is better for patients who desire a level stomach, done by tightening the abdomen by altering the skin, the fat, and the muscles.
This is more suitable for women who do not have stretch marks nor sagging skin but who would like to reduce the extra fat beneath the belly button.
These procedures can be done using general, local, or twilight anesthesia, all depending on the patient's needs and preferences.
