Abdominoplasty surgery, commonly known as Tummy Tuck surgery, is a body contouring procedure designed to create a slimmer, firmer midsection. There are many factors — including include pregnancy, dramatic weight gain or loss, age and genetics — that contribute to excess fat and skin around the waistline.
For many people who consider Tummy Tuck surgery, no amount of diet or exercise will ever achieve the slim, tight look they desire. Proper diet and exercise are important to the overall health of a patient and, when used in conjunction with the Tummy Tuck procedure, the results can be amazing and long-lasting.

Men and women who have undergone a dramatic weight loss through either diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, are often left with excess, sagging skin from their bigger frames. After the hard work of getting the weight off and getting physically healthy, it can be very devastating to then not feel like you can show off and enjoy your new figure due to the excess skin. Arms, breasts, the mid-section, buttocks and thighs are the most commonly effected by excess skin.
Body contouring surgery after major weight loss can remove the excess skin and tighten the remaining to reveal all the success of your hard work. Ideal candidates should be in good physical and mental health, at and maintaining a study, normal weight, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for the procedure and itís potential outcome.
The first step in your body contouring journey is the consultation. During your consultation with your board certified Plastic Surgeon, you will be asked a number of questions about your medical history, medication, supplement and drug use. You will be asked about your goals, expectations and concerns for the procedure. Your health will be evaluated and your Plastic Surgeon will walk you through the procedure and its risks. This is the time to ask as many questions as you can think of in order to make an informed decision. As with all surgical procedures, there are risks which need to be carefully considered.
Calf augmentation, like breast augmentation, is generally sought out by patients to improve ones proportions and improve self-esteem. Calf augmentation or calf implants is performed using soft, solid, silicone implants which are placed through a relatively small incision placed in the crease behind the knee. The implants are placed above the gastrocnemius muscle and below the muscle fascia. This muscle has two heads. One or two implants are placed in each leg, depending on the desired effect sought. Patients may choose to have the outer portion, the inner portion or both portions enhanced.

As we age the skin loses elasticity, muscles and fat begin to shift and everything starts to sag. After significant weight loss this is also a common concern. A butt lift procedure is designed to lift the buttock to a more youthful and attractive position. A butt lift is often performed as part of a body contouring or body lift procedure, though it is also performed on its own.
A butt lift procedure is generally done in one of two ways. It can be done by removing the excess, sagging skin and tightening the remaining skin, or it can be done by using fat injections or implants. Utilizing fat injections to create a butt lift is often referred to as Brazilian butt lift. If the desire is to reduce the size of the buttock and lift it, liposuction can be done in conjunction with removing excess skin. If, however, the desire is to increase the size and improve the shape of the buttocks, butt implants or fat injections may best be used instead.
Labiaplasty, also spelled Labioplasty, or the reduction & beautification of the large labia is fast becoming as common, popular and socially accepted as a Breast Augmentation, Liposuction and many other cosmetic procedures. Public awareness of Labia surgery has grown considerably due to articles featuring this procedure in Elle and New Woman magazines. Labiaplasty was mentioned to be the “hottest procedure in Hollywood today” by Dr. Robert Rey on Dr. 90210 recently.
Sometimes even a healthy diet and consistent exercise regime can fail to procedure the results desired for every part of your body. Many men and women struggle with localized pockets of fat in a particular area of their body which is more resistant to diet and exercise than other areas of their body. This is largely due to genetics. We are pre-disposed to gain and hold on to weight in certain areas of our bodies and it’s different for everyone. Some people seem to only gain weight in all the more desirable areas and for others, just the opposite is true.
If you are tired of not getting the results you desire on your own, are in good health and are in a normal, healthy weight range, you may be a good candidate for Liposuction. Liposuction can be performed on nearly any part of the body including lower legs, hips, thighs, buttocks, back, abdomen, chest, upper arms, neck, along the jaw line and cheeks. These days there are a few different types of Liposuction coming onto the market, but the most commonly used is called Tumescent Liposuction.
The toll that pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding can have on a woman’s body can be devastating, both physically and emotionally. Even with proper diet and exercise, oftentimes it is near impossible to restore one’s post-pregnancy body back to one’s pre-pregnancy body.
Some of these effects include:
- Stretching of the stomach muscles
- Stretching and loosening of the skin in the areas of the breasts, thighs, abdominals
- Excess fat deposits in the belly, back and thighs
- Stretch marks on the breasts, belly and thighs
The Mommy Makeover procedure is comprised of several different cosmetic procedures that, when used in conjunction, produce stunning results. However, because every woman has different restorative needs, the combination of procedures will vary from one body to another. The Mommy Makeover is not a ‘cookie cutter’ procedure, but one that can be tailored to meet your individual needs, which is one reason why the Mommy Makeover procedure is so revolutionary in its design.
Usually the result of weight loss, decrease in skin elasticity or excessive exposure to the sun, some women can find themselves with loose and saggy skin in the upper thigh area. Removing this excess skin results in firmer, more attractive upper legs with a more pleasing contour. Prior to thigh lift surgery, many women complain of irritation caused by the excess skin rubbing together. Once the excess skin is removed, most report an increase in self-confidence and a willingness to wear clothing they once avoided.
For those complaining of excess skin on the outer thighs, the Lateral Thigh Lift treats this area by tightening the skin on the front and sides of the leg, helping to eradicate the dreaded “saddlebags”. The inner, or Medial Thigh Lift, addresses excessive skin on the inner thigh and helps prevent the upper thighs from touching, in addition to contouring the thighs in general.
