Liposuction or suction-assisted lipectomy, involves removal of fat from the body via narrow tubes, requiring only tiny skin incisions. This may be done in the office with the patient awake, but for some patients and for large treatment areas is done in the operating room under anesthesia. It is not a weight loss procedure, but is carried out to reduce undesired fullness in particular areas to improve the shape of the body and permanently improve contours and porportions.
An abdominoplasty, popularly referred to as a "tummy tuck" flattens your abdomen by removing extra fat and skin, and tightening muscles in your abdominal wall.
A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.
Post Weight Procedures
A Panniculectomy addresses solely the excess of skin that hangs below the waistline in either the obese patient or the patient who has lost a significant amount of weight. This wedge of overhanging abdominal tissue is removed, and the layer of tissue superficial to the muscles is not tightened in this procedure.
