Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.
A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.
Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:
- Prior surgery
- Significant fluctuations in weight
What tummy tuck surgery can’t do
A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss or an appropriate exercise program. Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the positive outcome can be greatly diminished by significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, individuals who are planning substantial weight loss or women who may be considering future pregnancies would be advised to postpone a tummy tuck.
A tummy tuck cannot correct stretch marks, although these may be removed or somewhat improved if they are located on the areas of excess skin that will be excised.
Who is a good candidate for tummy tuck surgery?
A tummy tuck is a highly individualized procedure. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
In general, you may be a good tummy tuck candidate if:
- You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
- You have realistic expectations
- You are a nonsmoker
- You are bothered by the appearance of your abdomen
It is the best method for removing unwanted localized fat deposits that don’t respond well to traditional weight loss methods.
Is Liposuction the Right Choice for Me?
The ideal candidates for liposuction are typically physically healthy patients with pockets of excess fat in localized areas. The best results are achieved in patients with good skin tone and quality that allows their skin to conform to the new body contour. Liposuction will enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.
What you can expect after your liposuction procedure:
- Increased self confidence and self esteem
- A more comfortable fit, and beautiful look in your clothes.
- A beautiful hourglass shape with a small waistline and flat abs
- No more muffin top
- A more balanced and proportional body.
- Smooth sexy shape all around no more muffin top.
- More fun shopping for clothes that fit much better and look great!
Brazilian Butt Lift
Buttock augmentation, or gluteal augmentation, is used to improve the contour, size and/or shape of the buttocks. This is done through the use of buttock implants, fat grafting or sometimes a combination of the two.
Buttock implants are silicone-filled devices that are surgically placed deep within the tissues of the buttock. Buttock augmentation through the use of fat grafting involves the transfer of fat from one area of the body into the tissues of the buttocks. This technique is sometimes referred to as a Brazilian Butt Lift.
What buttock augmentation surgery can do
- Increase fullness, roundness and projection of your butt or buttocks
- Improve the balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
In addition to buttock augmentation procedures, a buttock lift can be accomplished by the surgical removal of soft tissue.
A buttock lift, or gluteal lift, improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat in the buttock area.
Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the buttocks.
In order to achieve a smoother and more pleasing contour, excess sagging skin and fat are removed. A traditional gluteal lift will not make a butt larger, but may improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface. This procedure may be included in a body lift or may be performed separately.
What a buttock lift can’t do
Buttock lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat nor are they intended to add volume to the buttocks. Fat grafting, buttock implants or auto-augmentation (when some of your own tissue is left underneath the skin) can be used to add volume. Liposuction is sometimes added for better contouring.
Buttock enhancement surgeries are highly individualized procedures. You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
Who is a good candidate for buttock enhancement?
You may be a good candidate for buttock enhancement if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- You are bothered by the feeling that your butt is too small
- You are unhappy with the roundness or general shape of your butt
- Your butt is asymmetrical
Who is a good candidate for a buttock lift?
In general, buttock lift candidates include:
- Individuals with significant soft tissue looseness in the gluteal area
- Healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what gluteal lift surgery can accomplish
- Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition and fitness

There are many areas of the body that can be addressed, most commonly the breasts, abdomen, waist, genitalia and buttocks. A mommy makeover is typically performed as a single stage procedure. There are many techniques used to perform a mommy makeover, and many factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which techniques are best:
- Desired amount of restoration
- Placement of the incisions
- Type of implant used

Are You Tired of Carrying Around Excess, Sagging Arm Skin?
It’s not uncommon when aging, or after significant weight loss, to experience stretched, loose skin in the arms. Understandably, this can lead to being uncomfortable with your appearance and even general feelings of unhappiness due to diminished self-confidence.
Get Back in Short Sleeves Again!
When it comes to excess skin under the arms, there’s often amount of exercise or diet that will help you tighten up. With an arm lift, or brachioplasty, you’ll get tighter skin and smoother supportive tissue giving you a defined upper arm that you’ll be excited to show off.
What Exactly is an Arm Lift?
An arm lift consists of a 2 to 3-hour procedure where excess skin is removed from the upper arm. A series of incisions will be made in the upper arm and bicep groove and excess skin will be removed, giving your arms a toned, smooth appearance.
What About the Other Areas of My Body?
Frequently, our patients choose to combine the arm lift procedure with other skin tightening procedures to improve their overall body contour. Operations such as tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and breast lifts target loose skin in other areas of the body. If you’ve experienced significant weight loss, or are simply experiencing the affects of aging, these areas are typically the most effected. By tackling all these areas at once, you can avoid having to return for multiple procedures.
How Long is the Recovery?
After around 7 to 10 days from your procedure, you should be able to return to your normal routine, as long as you avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activities. You can expect some bruising and swelling, depending on how much skin was removed. After four weeks, you’ll be back to normal!
What is thigh lift surgery?
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin and fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
If fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you.
What thigh lift surgery can’t do
Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours.
In cases where skin elasticity is poor, a thigh lift along with liposuction may be recommended.
Who is a good candidate for thigh lift surgery?
In general, candidates for a thigh lift are:
- People whose weight is relatively stable
- Individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner (medial) thigh region and/or the outer (lateral) thigh
- Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery
- Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what thigh lift surgery can accomplish
- Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle, including proper nutrition and fitness
