Summer is just around the corner and although it’s fun to think of sipping on pina colada's by the pool and flying kites with your kids, it can be a little more than terrifying if your body isn’t ready. To help you feel confident in your skin, we at Plastic Surgery Associates offer our patients a variety of contouring services including liposuction, Brachioplasty, and tummy tucks. Don’t be the type of person who camps out in a kimono this summer and consider getting one of these surgical procedures done from Plastic Surgery Associates. Read on to learn more.
As one of the most consistently popular plastic surgeries, liposuction is used to surgically rid your body of stubborn fat. Here at Plastic Surgery Associates, we offer our patients two different types of liposuction procedures: Ultrasonic Liposuction and Vaser Lipo.
- Ultrasonic Liposuction
Ultrasonic tumescent liposuction (Lipo-Selection) involves the removal of fatty deposits. During this procedure, several quarter-inch incisions will be made and then a small tube or needle is placed into the fatty tissue. Before the fat is removed, however, the tissues go through a tumescent infiltration process that uses numbing medication and epinephrine. Then, ultrasound is administered through the incisions followed by the suction removal of the fat using a cannula.
- Vaser Lipo
Vaser lipo is also a form of ultrasound liposuction that is used to get rid of stubborn fat and tissue in the body. With a combination of suction, massage, and ultrasound technology, Vaser Lipo effectively and safely softens and breaks up fatty tissue.
A Brachioplasty or arm lift is a surgical procedure used to get rid of excess fat and skin on the upper arms. As you age, your body starts to not only store fat, but it also starts to lose elasticity in the skin. Luckily, with a Brachioplasty, you can get rid of both of those problems with just one surgery.
Whether you have had children or recently lost a lot of weight, you may have a lot of excess skin around your middle section. With a tummy tuck, one of our doctors will remove excess skin and lift it— leaving you with a tighter stomach. Additionally, many of our patients opt to get a tummy tuck with lipo to get rid of fat in the process.
Get ready for summer in a big way with one of these procedures. To learn more, contact our Plastic Surgery Associates office today and schedule an appointment!
