American culture is becoming more health conscious each day. However, there are limits to the results that diet and exercise alone can achieve, and certain pockets of fat or areas of loose skin can be addressed with a simple procedure. Dr. Magassy offers body contouring procedures as an excellent option for patients who would like an improved appearance to their abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, legs, or neck. In addition, Dr. Magassy will often combine these procedures to provide patients with a comprehensive improvement to their appearance.
An arm lift, or otherwise known as brachioplasty, can remove the excess skin and fat deposits, leaving the upper arms with a more pleasing and youthful contour. As a person ages, upper arm skin can become loose and flabby. Plastic surgeons will consult with patients about undergoing surgery for an arm lift if they wish to tighten the skin to look and feel more youthful. The incision extends from the elbow to the underarm, and sometimes on to the side of the chest. Isn’t it time for arms you are proud to show off?
If you are a patient who has lost a lot of weight from dieting, exercise, or bariatric surgery (gastric bypass surgery), then you are probably wondering how to get the slim body that you hoped for. Now that the weight and fat are gone, you may have excess skin that needs to be removed before your look can be completed.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a fat transfer, also called fat grafting or fat injections. It is a simple concept: Dr. Magassy removes fat from areas in the body where it is abundant, and places it in the areas where it is needed. Fat transfer is a safe, natural, non-allergenic procedure designed to re-contour. The advantages of the Brazilian Butt Lift are natural looking results, long-term enhancement, quick recovery period and no scarring. Fat is abundant, is easily molded, has a natural feel and look, can be permanent and does not cause any allergic reactions.
Laser liposuction, also known as “liposculpture”, “laser lipolysis” and “laser lipo”, has revolutionized the fat loss and has mad the agony of regular liposuction a thing of the past. Basic liposuction involves the use of a hollow metal tube called a cannula to remove extra fat, by sucking it out like a vacuum. The cannula is places through incisions and afterwards, these incisions are closed up with stitches – bruising and pain will follow.
Motherhood is a joyous thing. Aesthetically speaking, many women find the effects from pregnancy less than desirable. The breasts and the abdomen are stretched in the process and often do not return to their pre-pregnancy appearance.
The medial thigh lift will lift and tighten the sagging skin of the inner thigh. Incisions are usually placed in the groin. A thigh lift is commonly performed as part of a lower body lift for patients who have undergone weight loss following bariatric surgery.
We all desire a flat tummy but age, child bearing, lack of exercise and weight gain are the enemies in this battle. However, a tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is an excellent answer to achieve a flatter stomach.
Vaginal rejuvenation is a procedure that has grown in popularity. Labiaplasty, plastic surgery on the labia (the “lips” surrounding the vagina), can be performed alone or with vaginoplasty. Surgery can be performed on the labia major, or the labia minor. Labiaplasty changes the size or shape of the labia, typically making them smaller or correcting an asymmetry between them. As women age the labia majora loses volume, and becomes elongated and less youthful looking and feeling, causing many women to question their desirability.
