Arm lift (brachioplasty)
Losing a significant amount of weight can be a wonderful, life-changing event, but also can lead to loose, saggy skin between the elbow and armpit. If you want to tighten up the skin under your arms, an arm lift, or brachioplasty, can help by removing the loose, saggy skin. Liposuction can be a component of brachioplasty.
During an arm lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the underarms — between the armpit and elbow. The skin is then draped back over the newly repositioned contours.
Body contouring after weight loss
Unmanageable and, sometimes, unhealthy excess skin can be the result of significant weight loss. After all that hard work and dedication, you want to look and feel your best. Body contouring can help by removing excess skin to reveal your healthier and trimmer body.
Liposuction and body contouring
Buttocks, thighs and abdomen can be stubborn areas to lose excess fat or skin. Liposuction and body contouring can slim and reshape those stubborn areas.
During tumescent liposuction — the most common type of liposuction — the surgeon uses a thin tube, or cannula, attached to a vacuum to remove fat from under the skin. In some cases, the surgeon may insert the cannula through several points to treat an area from different angles.
Skin cancer excision and reconstruction
Lesion removal, along with reconstruction treatment options for skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma, can minimize the visible effects of cancer treatment and procedures.
If fitness and weight control efforts have not resulted in your goals of a firmer, more toned overall body image, then a surgical lift may be a consideration. One type of surgery lift is the thigh lift. Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. The result is smoother skin and a better-proportioned outline of the thighs and lower body.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty or panniculectomy)
Aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, surgery and other factors can result in excess skin and fat around your mid-to-lower-abdomen. If you'd like to improve the look of your waistline, a tummy tuck can help.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle to lower abdomen to flatten the abdomen and provide improved contour. The skin is then draped back over the newly repositioned contours to create a smoother, more toned look.
