Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion. This technique may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen and waist, upper arms, back, inner knee and chest area. The tumescent or super-wet technique of liposuction requires an infusion of saline solution with adrenaline and possibly anesthetic prior to the removal of excess fat. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis usually under general anesthesia.
Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin, and in some cases restores weakened or separated muscles. This creates an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. A tummy tuck involves the surgical removal of excess abdominal fat and skin and includes tightening of the abdominal wall where muscles have weakened. A full tummy tuck requires a horizontal incision in the area between the pubic hairline and navel. Incision size is largely dependent on the amount of excess skin to be removed. Where correction is isolated to the area below the navel, a limited or mini tummy tuck with a shorter incision at the pubic bone may be recommended. This procedure is done with a one-night stay in the hospital under general anesthesia.
This surgery 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. This surgery is performed in a hospital under general anesthesia.
