Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Many women tend to accumulate extra fat in their upper arms, making them look droopy and flabby. Arm reduction surgery, also known as “brachioplasty,” is a procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat cells and slim the arms. Brachioplasty is also a solution for people who have undergone weight loss surgery and have folds of excess skin on their arms.
Despite vigorous exercise, excess fat and skin cannot always be eliminated from the thighs. A thigh lift is a delicate procedure designed to tighten and tone the thighs, creating a more streamlined appearance. During the procedure, excess skin is trimmed away and unnecessary fat is removed, leaving the patient with a pair of beautiful, shapely legs!
Buttock Lift / Gluteal Implants
During a buttock lift, an incision is made where the upper thigh and lower fold of the buttock meet. A pocket is made inside the gluteus maximus muscle and a silicone implant is put in place. Special considerations are made to make sure both sides of the buttocks are symmetrical. This procedure is performed in the operating room under a general anesthesia. Recovery time will require that the patient avoid sitting or lying on the buttocks for six weeks.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure designed to create a more prominent, sensual, enhanced buttock. It involves injecting your fat lipo suctioned from other areas into your buttock.
People of all ages can have a Brazilian Butt Lift. There must be enough fat to be harvested for re-injection. People with limited fat may benefit from a gluteal augmentation with implants rather than a fat transfer or Brazilian Butt Lift.
Post-Bariatric Body Contouring
For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight after bariatric surgery, a body contouring procedure is an excellent way to safely remove excess skin and tighten up troublesome areas of the body. A body contouring procedure, such as a tummy tuck, body lift, or buttock lift, can improve the patient’s overall self-image by completing their triumphant and dramatic transformation.
Dr. Loessin offers the following types of body contouring procedures for post-bariatric patients:
- Facelift and neck lift: lifts and tightens skin around the face and neck
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty): tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess skin
- Thigh lift: removes excess loose skin from the inner or outer thighs
- Arm lift (brachioplasty): removes sagging skin and gently contours the curves of the arms.
- Body lift: lifts and firms targeted areas of the body where the skin has lost elasticity
- Buttock lift: tones the buttocks by lifting and tightening the skin
- Removal of back rolls: eliminates fatty areas of the back.
- Pubic lift (monsplasty): reduces and tightens the skin around the mons pubis area
