Body Contouring

Body Contouring

Surgical body contouring following major weight loss removes excess fat and skin while improving the shape of the body. The result is a more normal appearance with smoother contours. Body contouring procedures may include:

  • Facelift: Helps with sagging of the mid-face, jowls, and neck
  • Liposuction: Removes excess fat, including the chin and neck, hips, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, knees and ankles and buttocks.
    • Improves body contour and proportion
    • Trims fat that won’t go away with weight loss or exercise
  • Arm Lift: Removes excess skin from the underarm and reshapes the under portion of the upper arm – from the armpit area to the elbow.
    • Improves sagging upper arms resulting from weight loss, aging or heredity
    • Addresses excess skin, weakened tissues and localized fat deposits
  • Breast lift: Helps with sagging, flattened breasts
  • Tummy tuck: Removes excess abdominal fat and skin; typically, also reestablishes weakened or separated muscles.
    • Creates a smoother, firmer abdominal profile
  • Lower body lifts: Removes excess sagging fat and skin to treat conditions caused, in part, by poor tissue elasticity.
    • Treats excess skin, cellulite and sagging fatty tissue
    • Can treat the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and thighs in one procedure
  • Medial thigh lift: Reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat.
    • Offers smoother leg contours
    • Different types of thigh lifts target certain areas

Why Consider Body Contouring?

Dramatic weight loss has many benefits. After weight reduction surgery, or dramatic weight loss, skin and tissue often lacks elasticity to conform to the new body size. Body contouring may assist in patients having the desired body shape and size. Doing so builds self-confidence, allows clothes to fit more comfortably, and improves self-esteem.

Methods for Getting Rid of Excess Skin

, , ,

Carrying around the extra weight of excess skin can be a lot to bear – both figuratively and literally.

In cases where excess skin is the result of desired weight loss or a pregnancy, it is most certainly an unwanted side effect. And it can put the kibosh on an otherwise joyous occasion.

Then as if the sheer assault on self-esteem weren’t enough, extra skin can cause discomfort in the form of chafing, irritation, and rashes. Fortunately, there are methods for getting rid of excess skin.

What Causes Excess Skin?

The most common cause of excess skin is extreme weight loss – though it’s not the sole culprit.

Our skin is designed to expand and contract. Collagen, which provides firmness and strength, accounts for 80% of the skin’s structure. Meanwhile, elastin is there to help the skin stay tight and “bounce back” from stretching.

The problem is, when the skin is required to expand for prolonged amounts of time, the collagen and elastin fibers are overextended and become damaged. This is the case for people who have been overweight for years or even decades.

While pregnancy can also cause excess skin, in most cases, the skin typically retracts within several months postpartum – as the length of time the skin is stretched in only nine months. Multiple pregnancies, however, can also challenge the ability of collagen and elastin to do their work.

The general rule of thumb is that the longer one has carried extra weight, and the more extreme it is (100 pounds or more), the stronger the likelihood that there will be excess skin after losing it.

What Other Factors Affect Skin Elasticity?

Extreme weight loss alone can be enough to create excess skin. But there are other factors that can work in tandem with weight loss that will also negatively affect the skin’s elasticity.

Obviously, older skin with less collagen and elastin production will not bounce back like younger skin does. The amount of sun exposure the skin has experienced will also affect this. Even smoking reduces the skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin.

Then, of course, there’s always good old genetics. Some of us are just more blessed with resilient skin than others.

So then what’s a person who’s troubled by excess skin to do?

Methods for Getting Rid of Excess Skin

There are myriad ways to manage excess skin – though depending on the above factors, some ways are far more effective than others.

Exercise

Many people will start with an exercise program to combat excess skin. And in most cases, exercise is a positive activity that we’re certainly not going to discourage!

Yes, building muscle mass through weight training can help to decrease the appearance of excess skin by replacing muscle mass with lost fat. But once again, if extra skin is the result of massive weight loss, there’s no amount of exercise that will completely eliminate it.

Firming Creams and Cosmetic Procedures

Similar to exercise, firming creams and cosmetic procedures could be helpful for those who aren’t struggling with a lot of excess skin or if the skin is mostly just loose around the eyes and mouth.

Firming creams with retinoids and hyaluronic acid are the most effective – especially for older skin. And cosmetic procedures including chemical peels, ablative laser resurfacing, and botox injections could help to tighten and smooth the skin.

Yet similar to exercise, firming creams and cosmetic procedures alone are not going to be enough to get rid of excess skin from major weight loss.

Body Contouring Surgery

The only true way to get rid of excess skin after major weight loss is through plastic surgery. This usually consists of a range of body contouring procedures performed by a plastic surgeon and designed to address excess skin folds on the arms, legs, torso and/or buttocks.

The initial step during these procedures is to remove skin. From there, the surgeon will also tighten and lift the targeted areas to improve contour. This delivers a more natural and pleasing shape. And these surgeries are long-lasting, provided that the patient’s weight remains stable.

As such, body contouring surgery to get rid of excess skin is typically scheduled once weight has stabilized for a least a few months after massive weight loss. And after the procedure, patients need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to ensure success.

Are You Troubled By Excess Skin?

Whether you’re dealing with sagging skin around the face, or hanging skin after major weight loss, we can help you with the best methods for getting rid of excess skin.

The Health Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

The Health Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

Do you struggle with back pain that comes from poor posture?

As much as you might try to sit or stand up tall and straight, it doesn’t seem to help. Before you opt for back surgery though, you may want to consider a tummy tuck.

It may sound counterintuitive. How could a tummy tuck possibly ease your back pain?

We’ll explore this aspect of the procedure, along with the MANY other health benefits of a tummy tuck.

Benefits of the Drainless Tummy Tuck

Benefits of the Drainless Tummy Tuck

  1. Improves Abdominal Tone

If you’ve experienced a pregnancy or extreme weight loss, your stomach muscles may have become distended. The muscles are no longer able to adequately tighten to pull the belly in and give it that taut appearance. And no amount of diet or exercise is effective.

One of the benefits of a tummy tuck is that it not only removes excess skin and fat to flatten the belly, but it also tightens those weak and distended muscles to improve abdominal tone.

Aside from giving you a flatter stomach, improving your abdominal tone leads to better posture. When the abdominal muscles are weak, they’re not able to give the spine the support it needs. This often results in a curving of the spine called lordosis – more commonly known as “sway back.”

Following a tummy tuck though, it’s common for patients to notice that their posture has significantly improved. And with improved posture comes less strain on the spine and relief from certain types of back pain.

So that’s how a tummy tuck can help relieve back pain. But what about the other health benefits of a tummy tuck?

 

  1. Helps with Obesity Recovery

It’s important to note that a tummy tuck is not considered a weight-loss procedure. Typically, only a few pounds of tissue are typically removed. But research shows that having a tummy tuck can help previously obese patients maintain a healthy weight.

According to the medical journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Swiss researchers found that bariatric patients who received surgery to reduce the size of their stomach were more likely to keep the weight off when they combined it with a tummy tuck.

In fact, patients who combined the two procedures regained an average of only a pound per year. By contrast, bariatric patients that didn’t opt for body-contouring procedures gained an average of four pounds per year.

Researchers speculate that the tightening of the abdominal muscles compresses the stomach, thereby reducing its capacity and increasing the ability to feel full after meals.

Managing weight and avoiding weight gain is especially important when it comes to those with diabetes. Since weight has a significant effect on the occurrence of insulin resistance, considerable weight loss renders the body more efficient in utilizing the insulin it produces.

By lowering insulin resistance, some diabetic patients are able to alter and more easily manage their previous medications.

 

  1. Reduces Stress Urinary Incontinence

Many women (and some men) experience “leakage.” Especially when they cough, sneeze, laugh or exercise. This bladder control problem is referred to as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI).

SUI occurs when the pelvic floor gets stretched, weakened or damaged and no longer sufficiently supports the bladder and urethra. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause it, but so too can excessive coughing or nerve injuries to the lower back or pelvic surgery.

Most of the time, SUI is treated without surgery. Several studies have indicated, however, that in more severe cases a tummy tuck can aid in recovery. During the procedure, soft tissue near the pelvic area is used to create a slight bladder obstruction. The result is an obvious reduction in incontinence.

 

  1. Increases Exercise Tolerance

While increasing your ability to exercise harder and more frequently isn’t technically a medical benefit, the results of doing so have a direct impact on one’s health.

Removing excess skin and strengthening the abdominal muscles can certainly make exercise easier. You’re able to do exercises you weren’t able to before. But just as importantly, it increases your self-esteem and confidence at the gym.

In fact, it’s not unusual for patients who undergo a body contouring procedure to be more motivated to stick to an exercise regimen. Their clothes fit better and they feel more comfortable in their workout setting with their slimmer waistline and newly contoured shape.

A regular exercise regimen also decreases anxiety and depression. So it’s a win-win all around.

 

  1. Corrects an Umbilical or Ventral Hernia

A hernia happens when the muscles inside the abdomen weaken in one spot and allow for a loop of intestine or abdominal tissue to push through the muscle layer.

When a ventral hernia occurs at the site of a surgical scar, it is called an incisional hernia. Some patients who have open abdominal surgery will develop a ventral hernia at their incision.

If the hernia occurs at the navel or belly button, it’s referred to as an umbilical hernia. This can occur with or without a prior incision.

If an umbilical or ventral hernia is encountered during a tummy tuck surgery, it can be repaired. Strengthening and restructuring the abdominal wall also decreases the likelihood of another hernia forming and requiring emergency surgery.

 

Take Advantage of the Health Benefits of a Tummy Tuck

While getting a tummy tuck is sure to boost your confidence and leave you feeling better about yourself, it could do so much more.

Could You Benefit from an Arm or Thigh Lift?

Have you experienced substantial weight loss?

Whether this weight loss was intentional or the result of some other situation, it may have left your arms and thighs drooping with excess skin.

Regardless of how much you may exercise, it just doesn’t seem to disappear.

If that sounds like you, it could be time to look into an arm or thigh lift.

 

What Is an Arm Lift?

If the skin under your arms is sagging as a result of weight loss or aging, you may feel uncomfortable wearing a wide array of cute and comfortable summer clothing.

You may even opt for long sleeves during the summer – which leave you hot and uncomfortable during those days or weeks of intense heat.

And forget about donning a bathing suit.

You may be able to ditch the long sleeves this summer and show off your arms again with an arm lift. Also known as brachioplasty, this surgical procedure removes excess fat and skin from your arms.

It can be done alone or in addition to other body contouring procedures.

 

Are You a Candidate for Brachioplasty?

If you’re a non-smoker who has maintained a stable and healthy weight, and you don’t have any medical conditions that could impair healing, you’ll want to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

The particulars of your arm lift will depend on your unique needs. The removal of excess fat with liposuction in conjunction with skin removal will allow the surgeon to tighten the sagging skin to the muscles of the arm.

The size of the incision and the amount of skin removed will depend on your specific body type. The surgeon will work closely with you to help ensure a desirable final outcome.

You’ll need to wear elastic bandages after the surgery to minimize swelling. As swelling subsides, results will continue to improve.

Whatever the case, it’s important to follow the surgeon’s specific aftercare instructions to ensure optimal recovery.

 

What Is a Thigh Lift?

Just as substantial weight loss and aging can leave the skin under the arms droopy, so too can they impact the thighs.

When the thighs have excess skin, cellulite, or loose tissue, it can be difficult to find clothes that fit well. It’s even more difficult to find stylish clothes.

In cases such as these, many patients opt for a thigh lift.

A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help to determine which type of procedure is right for you.

 

Different Types of Thigh Lifts

For optimal results, thigh lift procedures are frequently performed along with liposuction.

Our surgeons perform tumescent liposuction which is more effective, safer, and less painful than traditional liposuction. It also has a quicker recovery time. The result is almost no scarring, minimal downtime, and a drastic improvement to the silhouette.

 

Inner Thigh Lift

If you have excess loose skin or fat in your upper thighs, your surgeon may  recommend an inner thigh lift.

With this procedure, a crescent-shaped incision is made that stretches from the back of the mid-thigh to the front. The surgeon can then remove excess skin and fat to create a slimmer thigh appearance.

Scarring is minimal and can generally be hidden beneath clothing.

 

Extended Inner Thigh Lift

For those with extremely loose skin, muscles, and fat on their thighs, there is the extended inner thigh lift.

Just as the name implies, this procedure is an extended version of the inner thigh lift. Using a T-shaped or L-shaped incision, however, the surgeon is able to remove significantly more excess fat and skin.

While the scar in this case will also bear that T-shape or L-shape, any scarring can usually be concealed with clothing.

Whichever procedure your surgeon deems most appropriate for you, it will be important to follow your surgeon’s specific recovery instructions to ensure optimal outcomes.

The first two weeks of recovery, patients are advised to perform only light activities. Driving and walking for exercise can be resumed after those two weeks.

 

Bring back Defined Arms and Legs with an Arm or Thigh Lift

When diet and exercise just aren’t doing the trick, you can always turn to one of our highly trained plastic surgeons for an arm or thigh lift.

If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you should see long-lasting results.

So that means you can enjoy your summers in comfort and with a new found confidence – year after year after year.

Contact us today to get started.

What Is a Mommy Makeover?

 

 

You love your children and can’t imagine your life without them.

What you probably can imagine though is how great it would be to get back to your pre-pregnancy body.

For a few women, getting back to that body just requires focusing on healthy eating and exercise.

But for MANY other women, there is no amount of dieting or exercising that can beckon the return of that pre-pregnancy body.

If you’re one of the many women who have encountered this, don’t despair!

The mommy makeover was developed just for you.

 

Mommy Makeover

 

The Ravages of Pregnancy

As beautiful and miraculous as pregnancy and childbirth are, they can take a serious toll on a woman’s body.

Pregnancy and nursing render many women feeling less confident about the appearance of their bodies after childbirth.

There are a number of reasons for this. Pregnancy and nursing can result in any (or all) of the following:

  • Loss of breast volume
  • Separated abdominal muscles
  • Loose skin with stretch marks
  • Weight gain
  • Lifestyle changes

 

Women suddenly find themselves in bodies they don’t even recognize. This can be physically, mentally, and emotionally trying.

 

How a Mommy Makeover Helps

Although it might sound like you’ll be spending the afternoon at the makeup counter at the mall, a mommy makeover is really an umbrella term that refers to a combination of body contouring procedures.

And no two mommy makeovers are the same. Each procedure is custom-tailored to fit the patient’s specific needs.

You will consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will, in turn, develop an individualized plan to address your goals.

Then the chosen procedures will be completed together to improve those confidence-draining changes that have lingered after your pregnancy.

There are several procedures which the surgeon may recommend:

 

  1. Tummy Tuck

One tell-tale sign that a woman has experienced pregnancy are stretch marks on the skin. Deeper below the skin though, the abdominal muscles have often separated – leaving the belly to hang down and sag.

Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that reduces excessive fat and skin around the abdomen and reconstructs that abdominal wall musculature.

This helps to flatten the belly again and minimize the appearance of those stretch marks.

 

  1. Breast Lift/Augmentation

Breasts are prone to sagging after the demands placed upon the body during pregnancy and nursing. Surgery is performed to restore the breasts to their original and more youthful pre-pregnancy position.

Depending on your situation, the plastic surgeon might recommend a breast lift, breast augmentation, or breast lift with either silicone or saline implants.

In some cases, the breasts may become too large after pregnancy and are no longer proportionate to the body. In this case, there would be a breast reduction.

 

  1. Liposuction

For those troublesome post-pregnancy spots – typically the stomach, waist, hips, and thighs – where you just can’t seem to lose the fat, the surgeon may recommend liposuction.

With liposuction, small incisions are made in the treatment area and then a thin hollow tube, called a cannula, is inserted through the incisions to loosen excess fat cells. A surgical vacuum is then used to suction the fat out of those areas to create a slimmer body contour.

 

  1. Facial Rejuvenation

While this fourth procedure isn’t a mommy makeover “standard,” it is a terrific way to build upon the more youthful appearance that comes from the other procedures.

If the stresses of pregnancy and raising little ones is showing on your face, you’ll want to ask your surgeon about the possibility of adding a facelift or BOTOX.

 

Recovery from a Mommy Makeover

It’s important to remember that a mommy makeover is surgery.

That means that you’ll be put under anesthesia and need to allow for adequate recovery time.

When you return home, expect that you’ll have to wear compression garments to reduce swelling. This is going to ensure the most optimal results.

Also, prescription pain medication will be prescribed to help manage any discomfort.

It’s difficult to say exactly how long your recovery will take. Given that each surgery is customized to meet the individual needs of the patient, actual recovery times vary.

Most mothers are able to get back to their normal activities within two weeks of the surgery. However, strenuous activities will likely have a longer restriction time.

The final results of your mommy makeover will slowly become apparent in the weeks and months following the surgery. Swelling will subside and you’ll notice a renewed firmness and youthful appearance.

It’s important to note, however, that you’ll need to stay at a steady weight following your mommy makeover to maintain those results.

 

Are You a Good Candidate?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors. You may be a good candidate for a mommy makeover if you:

  • are healthy and able to stabilize your weight
  • feel dissatisfaction with the changes to your body post-pregnancy
  • have realistic expectations and goals

On the other hand, if you are planning on future pregnancies, then you will need to postpone this procedure until after that final pregnancy.

Reclaim Your Figure!

Contact us today to set up a free consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

 

A mommy makeover will give you renewed confidence in your appearance so you can focus on what really matters – spending time with your family.

Build Muscle And Blast Away Fat With EMSCULPT!

, , , , , , , , , , ,

If your anything like me then you are always busy, and sometimes that could mean neglecting things such as working out. Let’s face it, you work so hard all day and when you get home you just want to eat dinner and binge Netflix.   Going to the gym that is at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. What if you could do 20,000 crunches on your 30-minute lunch break? With the launch of EMSCULPT that is now possible.

 

So what is EMSCULPT?

 

Emsculpt is a revolutionary body contouring treatment that simultaneously burns fat and builds muscle. It’s the only non-invasive, FDA-approved treatment that offers this duality.

As a result, Emsculpt can strengthen, tone, and firm the abdomen and buttocks in a way that’s not possible with exercise or other procedures.

EMSCUPLT is a NON INVASIVE procedure meaning there is no downtime at all!

What is an EMSCULPT treatment like?

Four treatments sessions are scheduled 2-3 days apart and last 30 minutes each. Through a paddle-shaped applicator, Emsculpt delivers electromagnetic energy to abdominal and gluteal muscles. In doing so, the treatment produces extremely powerful muscle contractions.

Some people say the procedure feels like an intense workout as you relax while lying down. During treatments, you will experience 20,000 contractions over 30 minutes. These contractions are involuntary, we cannot achieve these on our own (this is like doing 20,000 crunches in 30 minutes). Results are seen 2-4 weeks after the last session with optimal results improving several weeks following the last session. The ideal candidate is close to an ideal weight and is physically active, but wants more defined abs or a higher and rounder butt.

According to the website RealSelf.com, 87% of those that had EMSCULPT treatments say it’s “WORTH IT.”

Results from clinical studies show:

  • a 19% fat reduction
  • 16% increase in muscle mass,
  • an average of 1.5-inch loss in waistline circumference
  • 80% of patients reported a visible lift of buttocks
  • an overall 96% patient satisfaction.

 

This treatment is most optimal for patients who are in overall good health, physically active, are 30 BMI or under, and want to enhance where their regular exercise program plateaus.

If you’re wanting stronger and longer endurance during workouts, added core strength, better posture and experience released endorphins EMSCULPT is the procedure for you.

What Does Mommy Makeover Entail?

  • Liposuction
  • Tummy Tuck
  • Breast Augmentation
  • Breast Lift

What Does Mommy Makeover Target?

Childbearing can cause a series of changes to occur on the body. Mommy makeover targets and helps to correct the following unwanted changes;

  • Sagging or deflated breasts: this is usually due to excess skin and loss of breast volume. Breast augmentation is carried out within hours to correct this problem.
  • Diastasis recti; this is a pregnancy-like pouch that refuses to disappear even after the baby is out. It leaves redundant skin around the abdomen and causes the stomach to bulge. A tummy tuck is done to tighten the loose skin. Liposuction is done to remove the fat deposit around the lower back, thigh, upper arm, flanks, and other places.
  • Stretch marks; skin treatment is used to remove wrinkles and stretch marks to make the skin clearer and smoother.
  • Premature facial aging; facial fillers are used to treat developing lines.

Recovery time

Recovery time may vary from procedure to procedure. You will learn more at your FREE consultation with Star Plastic Surgery.
