Because of the differences in where men and women tend to store fat, women often get frustrated by the fat in their upper arms. If excess fat is the only problem, then liposuction may be all that is necessary. However, if you have lost a large amount of weight then irreversible skin changes may be evident in the upper arms in which case an arm lift is likely the only solution to the problem.
Whether you have lost a large amount of weight and have a sagging gluteal region or if you just tend to store fat in the love handles and thighs and would like it transferred to the gluteal region for a more aesthetically appealing figure the butt lift may be right for you. To restore a youthful contour, a butt lift may be necessary in combination with liposuction or a fat injection.
Do you have an area of fat that does not seem to go away regardless of how much you exercise? Do you seem to gain excess fat over certain areas like the hips, “love handles,” lower abdomen or thighs? Liposuction can often help with these difficult areas. When liposuction is done well these difficult areas are left smaller with a smooth contour.
AFTER WEIGHT LOSS
Congratulations! You have lost 50, 75, 100 or even 150lbs, however after losing a large amount of weight, unfortunately, the skin undergoes irreversible changes. Surgery after massive weight loss may involve a broad variety of operations and even different body areas.
Excess skin and fat is not an uncommon problem. Whether you have lost a large amount of weight leaving excess skin in the inner thigh region or if you just seem to store fat in this area a medial thigh lift might be right for you. The thigh lift or thighplasty involves an incision placed over the inner thigh with the excision of the annoying excess skin and fat.
The tummy tuck operation is typically for men or women with excess skin or fat in the lower abdomen. After women have children they are often left with the excess skin of pregnancy that will not go away regardless of the amount of exercise and dieting performed. Furthermore, the abdominal muscles are stretched in the midline.
With age there is no area of the body immune to change. Women, after having children, often notice changes in the size and appearance of their labia. Labioplasty can be performed under local anesthesia with some sedation in the office or under general anesthesia. To discuss labial reduction surgery, schedule a consultation today.
