Today's society places strong emphasis on a slender, youthful appearance of the abdomen. This is particularly frustrating for women who have given birth or have lost a significant amount of weight, who are left with loose, stretched-out skin with permanent stretch marks, and abdominal muscles that no longer respond to exercise.
No matter what type of diet, or what kind of cream is applied, the redundant skin never goes away. It has lost its youthful elasticity and can no longer shrink back.
The abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, creates a tight, flat abdomen, and is one of the most common procedures performed in plastic surgery worldwide.
Liposuction is a highly successful mechanical removal of localized fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise, or that are hereditary.
Women whose upper arms droop with excess skin and fat and who want a firm, natural upper arm again will find great satisfaction in having an arm lift despite the lengthy scars it sometimes results in.
A body lift addresses loose drooping tissues circumferentially. The body lift transforms patients that have experienced massive weight loss and have excess skin.
Following significant weight loss, a patient may need or wish to restore the normal contours of the thighs, especially the upper thighs.
Often, breast implants (breast augmentation) or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) alone doesn't provide the physical balance one seeks. To consider a surgery consisting of several procedures at the same time is fine, for example breast augmentation with a breast lift, AND abdominoplasty, AND liposuction. - when the surgery is performed in a modern fully-equipped operating theatre and certain precautions are observed.
