Breast Lift and Augmentation Options
Options to rejuvenate post-pregnancy breasts include breast lift, breast augmentation, or a combination. Procedure surgical time ranges from 1-1/2 hours to approximately 3 hours.
Liposuction can be effective in spot removal of fat from the abdomen, thighs, and love handles. This surgical procedure involves small cannulas or tubes which are passed through the fat layer and an attached suction device is used to remove the fat. Very small incisions, measuring about 3/8 of an inch, prevent excessive scarring. Most patients return to basic home and work activities in about five days.
Tummy Tuck Options
A tummy tuck, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes the excess fat and skin from the abdomen. The procedure also helps to flatten the abdomen by tightening the surrounding muscles. In addition to the tummy tuck, liposuction is often performed to remove excess fat at the love handles and pubic area.
Lower Body Lift and Buttock Lift Options
An outer thigh and buttock lift is an option for patients with excess and saggy skin along the outer thighs and upper buttocks. The patients who have lost marked amount of weight are often candidates for this procedure.
Recovery time varies by individual. It’s imperative to give your body ample time to heal.
