Many patients who have faithfully followed a diet program know that weight loss does not guarantee a fit profile. Although your weight and BMI improved, you may still have areas of undesirable fat, loose skin or stretch marks that can be a reminder of your heavier days.
That is when it may be time to weigh the benefits of a body contouring procedure from skilled Louisville plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Maguire. There are many effective options to consider, including:
Liposuction is perfect for those areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. Typical problem areas include the abdomen, hips and thighs for women and the abdomen and love handles for men. During this outpatient procedure, Dr. Maguire uses a thin, narrow surgical instrument called a cannula to suction fat cells from these problem areas, resulting in a sculpted and slimmer body shape.
This proven procedure targets the loose skin that may remain after pregnancy or weight loss. Depending on your skin’s elasticity, it may be unable to shrink sufficiently to fit snugly over your smaller abdomen. Tummy tuck can also remove some fat and tighten abdominal muscles that have spread apart from pregnancy or weight gain.
As many women know, breasts can change in shape with time and gravity, becoming flatter as they experience a degree of sagging. Breast lift restores a youthful, perkier profile. Depending on patient preference, it can be performed with or without the insertion of implants.
Brachioplasty has become an increasingly popular procedure in recent years. Arm lift removes excess hanging skin and fat from the underarm and reshapes the under part of the upper arm, from the armpit area to the elbow.
Lower Body Lift
This procedure tightens and reshapes the hips, abdomen, back of the thighs, outer thighs, inner thighs and buttocks. It is a combination procedure that can be performed in a single operation.
Thighplasty sculpts the thighs by removing excess skin and sometimes pockets of fat, producing a more appealing shape for the upper leg. Dr. Maguire offers several varieties of thigh lift, based on the individual’s specific needs.
