Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
Brachioplasty is surgically recontouring the arms. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. In order to remove the unwanted skin, an incision is required that runs from near the elbow into the armpit The incision is placed in the most inconspicuous location (inner arm toward the back), but some scarring will always be visible.
Buttock & Thigh Lift
With aging, skin gets loose and flabby as natural elasticity disappears. In women, this tendency may result in large areas of saggy skin mostly inside the thighs. Thigh lifting is meant to stretch skin back into place, Improve contours by making tighter, more attractive thigh and buttock skin, reduce fat layers and decrease irregularities in skin surface if necessary and excise surplus skin.
Body Lifting & Contouring
Body contouring after weight loss surgery can help reduce excess skin and fat, and also restore tightness and elasticity to the skin. After major weight loss, certain areas of your body may sag and appear misshapen, masking the changes your weight loss has provided. These areas, such as the face, neck, arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks and thighs, can be easily improved through multiple procedures that will lift and sculpt your new and improved body. Known as a body lift when combined together, you can pick and choose which procedures you would like to help achieve the look you desire.
Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands. There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the face and is less noticeable). The effectiveness of scar reduction depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the injury, your body’s healing mechanism, the size and depth of the wound, how much blood supplies the area and the thickness and color of your skin.
