Over time, many patients begin to notice fullness in the abdomen, back, legs, and other areas of the body. These areas of concern may not always have been present, but may begin to show following weight gain or loss, pregnancy, hormonal fluctuations (such as menopause), and time.
The best way to maintain a fit and toned body is to exercise regularly and eat a whole food, nutritious diet. However, even with a rigorous workout routine and the healthiest of diets, some patients are still unable to reduce the shape or size of some areas of the body, such as the buttocks. It is these patients who benefit most from body contouring procedures.
Here are some Body Contouring we offer, click on the link below to learn more about each:
Tummy tuck surgery tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess fat and skin from the stomach. This can be the ideal cosmetic surgery procedure for anyone desiring a fit appearance, especially post-pregnancy moms and aging or post weight-loss men and women. The confidence you gain from your new appearance can inspire you to maintain a fit physique, and commit or re-commit yourself to pursuing good overall health. This procedure may be performed in combination with liposuction to give additional contouring.
A mommy makeover is a combination of breast and abdominal procedures designed to restore or improve upon the figure of a woman who has had children. A mommy makeover can help provide you with a rejuvenated sense of self along with a new, trimmer, firmer physical appearance. Mommy makeover patients choose between breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction procedures.
liposuction & smartlipo®
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Lovelle for women and men who wish to refine their shape to their ideal proportions. Through liposuction, you can show off the natural beauty and improve upon your body’s unique symmetry. Liposuction is often performed on the hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, arms, chest, and abdomen. The best candidate for this procedure is a physically healthy, normal weight person with firm, elastic skin, and with realistic goals and expectations.
upper arm lift
Upper Arm Lift surgery (Brachioplasty) is often performed on those that have sagging skin on the upper arms due to weight loss or the aging process. This procedure reduces or eliminates excess skin and fat from the upper arm, giving you a more toned appearance.
A thigh lift is a popular procedure for patients who have lost skin elasticity around the thigh and hip areas. Often the effects of age or massive weight loss can leave the upper portion of the legs flabby, dimpled, and sagging. A thigh lift can help to reduce the excess skin and return the legs to a smoother, more youthful contour.
If you have been successful in losing a significant amount of weight, you should be celebrating your success and hard work. Unfortunately, certain areas of our body, especially the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks can become stubbornly resistant to improvement. Some people, especially those who have undergone massive weight loss, find that the entire lower portion the body hangs or sags uncomfortably. Dr. Lovelle selectively and carefully offers procedures which can dramatically improve skin tightness and contour, as well improve self-image. A total body lift may include breast lift, tummy tuck, (Abdominoplasty), thigh lift, lower back and buttock lift as well as a combination of these or other procedures.
Panniculectomy is a procedure to remove hanging, excess skin and fat from the lower abdominal region. This procedure is most common among bariatric surgery patients and others who have lost a substantial amount of weight.
