Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Abdominoplasty (ab-dom’in-o-plas”te), also referred to as a tummy tuck, is a procedure to flatten the abdomen by tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall in addition to removing excess fat and skin. A tummy tuck can produce dramatic results for both men and women. A smooth, flat and firm abdomen implies a healthy, fit and youthful body. This also may be combined with liposuction to increase body contouring.

Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity.

Liposuction or suction assisted lipectomy is meant to help those who despite diet and exercise you may find areas of their body that are resistant to weight loss efforts. These pockets of fat are ideal for treatment with liposuction. Patients with isolated pockets of fat with good skin elasticity are good candidates for the procedure. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique. It is ideal for treating those stubborn spots once you have achieved your weight loss goal.
