An abdominoplasty, aka a tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure that can help tighten, tone, and flatten the contours and skin, muscles, and fat on the stomach. This is an excellent option for patients who have excess skin and fat and also laxity and loss of muscle tone due to pregnancy, weight fluctuation, or bariatric surgery. It can improve skin laxity and reduce wrinkles, sagging, dimpling, and other imperfections in the abdomen.
A mommy makeover is a more extensive version of the abdominoplasty, and includes a combination of procedures including breast augmentation, breast lift or reduction, and liposuction of the body. This surgery is ideal for mothers looking to obtain their pre-baby body or patients who have overcome significant weight loss.
Liposuction is one of the most well-known body contouring procedures and has been the top one or two procedures performed in the US over the past 10 years and is extremely popular due to its versatility and incredible results in the right hands. It can reduce fat in unwanted areas, significantly improving your body contour in specific areas and overall.
CoolSculpting® significantly reduces fat non-surgically with skin collapsing and contracting around the fat that is removed with non-invasive CoolSculpting® treatments. This procedure uses precise cooling technology to freeze the targeted fat cells and eliminate them from the body. It is part of the Allergan family of Cool- treatments.
Another member of the Allergan family, CoolTone™, works similar to its counterpart, CoolSculpting®, but instead of targeting fat, it targets the laxity and definition of the muscles. It is a great way to help sculpt your body and improve contours in areas where muscle definition would benefit.
Loose, sagging skin can develop in the face and neck and Profound is one of the best non-surgical options available today. It is also finding some benefits and improvements outside of the face and neck in other areas of the body. Profound uses radiofrequency heat therapy generated between 2 microneedling tips to both heat and resurface the skin and tighten the dermis.
Body contouring is often about improving definition and volume in certain areas while slimming down others. A fat transfer or graft is an excellent, 2-in-1 approach because it uses donor fat from sites you’d like small amounts removed and injects it directly into the areas seeking improvement for a natural approach to enhancement.
