More commonly known as tummy tuck surgery, abdominoplasty can often help patients attain a smoother, slimmer abdomen through the reduction of excess skin and fat, as well as the tightening of abdominal muscles. At 740 Park Plastic Surgery, our plastic surgeons employ a modified approach to traditional abdominoplasty that incorporates the benefits of both full and mini tummy tuck surgery techniques. Based on the patient’s unique needs, abdominal muscles are carefully tightened from the pubic region to the ribcage through an incision made as inconspicuously as possible along the lower abdomen. Extra skin is then excised, and the remaining skin is pulled tight for a firmer appearance. In some instances, liposuction is also performed to further contour the abdominal region, and the belly button is preserved or repositioned when necessary.
On average, the entire abdominoplasty procedure can typically be completed in about two hours. The majority of patients can return to normal, non-strenuous activities and daily routines after about one week.
Liposuction can be a great option for individuals seeking to eliminate excess pockets of fat that prove resistant to diet, exercise, and an overall healthy lifestyle. Capable of removing fatty tissue from virtually any area of the body, the procedure involves the use of tiny incision through which a saline-based solution is dispersed to loosen excess fat in the treatment area(s). The detached fat is then removed carefully using a special vacuum-controlled microcannula that allows for precise contouring of the targeted region. Referred to as “liposculpting” at our practice, this technique enables our doctors to expertly sculpt the body until an ideal outcome that both complements and enhances the patient’s figure is achieved.
Depending on how much fat is removed as well as the number of areas being treated, liposuction generally takes approximately one hour to complete. Most individuals are able to resume normal daily routines after about one week, though this may vary when liposuction is performed in conjunction with another procedure.
Also referred to as fat grafting or fat injections, fat transfer may be an excellent option for patients interested in smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face; diminishing signs of skin injury, such as scarring; enhancing the volume or contour of various facial features; increasing the size or improving the shape of the breasts; and/or completely rebuilding the breasts following mastectomy. During the procedure, liposuction is used to remove fat from an area of the body that has an ample amount of fatty tissue, providing the added benefit of body sculpting in the particular donor region. Once removed, the harvested fat is then filtered, purified, and reinjected into the targeted treatment area until optimal results are achieved.
Fat grafting typically takes about one to two hours to complete, though this will depend on whether or not the treatment is performed alone or in combination with another procedure. The majority of patients are able to return to non-strenuous daily routines after approximately one week.
Brachioplasty, which is also called arm lift surgery, can often be an excellent option for individuals seeking to eliminate loose, hanging skin and excess fat in the upper arm. During the arm lift procedure, an incision is generally concealed along the inside of the upper arm, and excess skin is carefully removed. The remaining skin is then pulled taut for a smoother, firmer appearance. When necessary, liposuction may be employed to improve results. For patients who have excellent skin elasticity, liposuction alone might be recommended as a possible alternative to brachioplasty.
On average, arm lift surgery typically takes about one to two hours to complete, and most patients are able to resume non-strenuous activity after about one week.
A mommy makeover refers to a customized combination of body, breast, and/or facial procedures designed to comprehensively address an individual’s aesthetic concerns. This popular plastic surgery option can include treatments such as mastopexy, breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty, brachioplasty, and/or facelift surgery, as well as a variety of non-surgical treatments and skin care services. Depending on the particular procedures employed, a mommy makeover may be performed at one time or in separate stages. As a result, recovery and downtime will vary based on the specific treatments performed, as well as how many are conducted in combination with one another.
In addition to the procedures highlighted above, Dr. Maman and Dr. Broumand also offer many other aesthetic and reconstructive procedures at 740 Park Plastic Surgery. Utilizing the safest, most advanced techniques available, additional treatments at our practice include: chin implants, ear piercing, earlobe repair, lesion excision, adult and pediatric laceration repair, Mohs reconstruction, scar revision, and thigh lift surgery. No matter the procedure, the utmost precision and care is taken to minimize any potential discomfort and/or postoperative scarring for excellent results.
