Body contouring refers to a variety of surgical procedures used to create a slimmer, more shapely profile. Whether it is stubborn pockets of fat or excess skin, Dr. Becker will work with you to achieve the body you’ve always wanted.
Liposuction is a safe and effective method used to target specific areas of fat deposition that have not responded to diet and/or exercise. Once the fat is removed, the skin will shrink resulting in a smooth, slimmer contour.
The tummy tuck will close the space between the muscles and remove the excess skin. This procedure is especially useful for women who are finished with childbearing and weight loss patients.
Childbearing can its toll on a woman’s body, effecting the breast and the abdomen. A Mommy Makeover addresses both of these areas to get back your pre-baby body. Breast rejuvenation typically involves a breast lift, a breast implant or both. These procedures will correct the change in nipple position, and loss of volume that can occur with pregnancy and breast feeding. Tummy rejuvenation typically involves an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Stretching of the abdominal muscles causes the muscles to separate and the skin to loosen. The tummy tuck will close the space between the muscles and remove the excess skin.
BODY CONTOURING AFTER MASSIVE WEIGHT LOSS
After losing a large amount of weight, there is an abundance of excess skin. Unfortunately, the skin has been stretched for so long that it has lost its elasticity and can’t shrink. In cases such as this, the excess skin has to be removed and the remaining skin is tailored specifically to your body.
LOWER BODY LIFT
This procedure removes the excess skin from midsection, thighs and buttocks.
After massive weight loss, there is deflation of the medial thigh. This procedure will remove the excess skin and elevate the remaining skin to improve the contour of the inner thigh and knee.
ARM LIFT (BRACHIOPLASY)
Much like the legs, there is profound deflation in the arms, often extending onto the chest, with massive weight loss. This procedure will remove the excess skin from upper arm, restoring the natural shape and proportion.
Deflation of the upper trunk/chest results in excess along the bra roll area in women and a sagging chest in men. Dr. Becker can remove the excess skin and tailor what remains to restore a slim contour in women and create a flat chest in men.
