This 34-year-old woman considered herself healthy, but felt bothered by large folds that covered her entire midsection and caused her to look heavy. She decided to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon at Dr. Stoker's Practice to discuss her options to rejuvenate and improve the look of her body. During their consultation, she explained her goals, and her surgeon outlined her options before recommending a Los Angeles abdominoplasty procedure.
For some patients, abdominal "flabbiness" is due mainly to excess fat which can be removed through liposuction. In many cases, though, this looseness results from loose skin, lax abdominal muscles, or a combination of these problems. In these cases, these fatty bulges are most effectively removed through abdominoplasty or a combination of abdominoplasty and Beverly Hills liposuction. Although this patient had excess fat, the folds and "flab" on her abdomen were due mostly to loose muscles and excess skin, so her surgeon performed a tummy tuck to correct both problems at once.
This woman's surgical results have healed very nicely, and she loves that her large fatty folds are gone, revealing a smoother, much firmer look. Her abdominal muscles now appear much flatter, with tighter skin and tissue. Her tummy tuck procedure has significantly enhanced the appearance of her entire body, and she is very happy with her new shape.
This 43-year-old mother desired an improved figure. Childbirth had stretched her skin, and despite her vigorous daily workout regime, she was unable to restore the slimmer, toned look she wanted. To find out how plastic surgery after childbirth could help enhance her figure, she made an appointment at Plastic Surgery. In her consultation, she explained that she was particularly interested in reshaping her abdomen and flanks, as well as improving the look of her sagging breasts.
After consulting with one of the skilled plastic surgeons at Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, this patient decided to undergo abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and liposuction of the flanks, as well as breast lift and augmentation. Most full tummy tuck procedures help flatten the abdomen in three ways - by tightening torn or overstretched abdominal muscles, tightening and trimming away loose skin, and if necessary removing fat from the abdominal area. Liposuction removes isolated fat deposits that are difficult to get rid of even with diet and exercise. At the same time, she also had a breast lift to elevate her breasts and a breast augmentation procedure using silicone implants to restore lost volume.
This patient's "mommy makeover" has created definite improvements to her problem areas, and in the process significantly enhanced the look of her whole physique. The liposuction and abdominoplasty have given her a flatter, leaner-looking abdomen, and helped create her a smaller, more refined waist. Her body shape is slimmer, smoother, and much more flattering, and she is very happy with the results of her Los Angeles tummy tuck.
This 43-year-old woman wanted a "body makeover," so she began to research highly qualified plastic surgeons in her area. She was attracted by the credentials and experience of the surgeons at Plastic Surgery, so she scheduled a consultation where she explained her desire to transform her appearance and achieve a more flattering shape. Specifically, she was interested in combined procedures that include Beverly Hills area tummy tucks and liposuction.
During her consultation, she and her surgeon planned a two-stage procedure that would include a first surgery for abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and a second surgery where power-assisted liposuction would be used to remove fat from the back, hips, flanks, support area, and inner thighs. While most patients receive combination procedures within one surgery session, in certain circumstances it is best to separate them to ensure results that will complement the patient's body as well as possible.
This woman has seen very pleasing results from her two-stage body contouring procedures. The noticeable bulge on her lower abdomen has been flattened through her tummy tuck, and as a result of both her Beverly Hills area abdominoplasty and her liposuction, her waist appears smaller, smoother, and much more shapely. She is very happy that the final results not only balance well with the look of her body overall but it also looks very natural.
This 27-year-old woman was concerned that excess folds of fat and skin throughout her abdominal area and across her back made her look heavier and less feminine. She scheduled an appointment at Plastic Surgery to find out how Los Angeles-area liposuction and body contouring could help her achieve the more flattering figure she wanted. After assessing her body, her doctor suggested a tummy tuck in combination with a power-assisted liposuction procedure to reshape her waist area and lower belly.
The doctors at Plastic Surgery haves helped to research and pioneer techniques for power-assisted liposuction in the US, and have found that it removes fat cells from the body more safely than many other methods and results in fewer post-operative complications. This patient received a tummy tuck to precisely shape a firmer-looking abdominal area, and her surgeon used power-assisted liposuction surgery in Los Angeles to sculpt away bulges of fat from support area, lower back, and hips.
Following surgery, this patient is thrilled with the results of her combination procedure. Now that she no longer has a "support roll" or protruding abdominal fat, her figure is noticeably slimmer and smoother, and she has better definition of the natural, balanced curves at her hips and waist. Each of her post-operative photos exhibits significant improvements that enhance the look of her entire body.
