Body Contouring NYC Procedures Available in Our Clinic
There are several body contouring procedures available to address specific concerns and achieve desired results.
Here are some of the most common body contouring procedures:
Liposuction Procedure in NYC
Liposuction is a surgical treatment used to remove extra fat deposits from particular body parts, helping to shape and contour those parts of the body.
It’s one of the most popular and successful body contouring procedures now accessible.
Body parts such as the belly, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, back, chest, and neck can all be treated with liposuction. It is effective in removing stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise.
Different techniques employed during liposuction
Traditional Liposuction: This method involves manually breaking up the fat deposits using back-and-forth motions of the cannula, followed by suctioning out the fat.
Tumescent Liposuction: In this technique, a solution containing a local anesthetic and epinephrine (to minimize bleeding) is injected into the targeted area before the fat removal process. The solution helps numb the area, reduce blood loss, and facilitate fat removal.
Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL): UAL uses ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat cells before suctioning them out. This technique is especially useful for fibrous areas, such as the upper back or male breast tissue.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction (LAL): LAL employs laser energy to liquefy the fat cells, making them easier to remove. It can also help stimulate collagen production and promote skin tightening in the treated area.
Patients may feel edema, bruising, and pain in the areas that have been treated after liposuction. A compression garment is typically worn to minimize swelling and support the healing process.
Depending on the complexity of the treatment and personal characteristics, the recovery time varies, but most people are able to resume work and light activities within a week or two.
Benefits and Considerations
Liposuction can provide significant improvements in body contour and help achieve a more proportionate figure. However, it is crucial to have reasonable expectations and understand that liposuction is a means to sculpt and polish particular regions rather than a procedure for weight loss.
It is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight after the procedure to sustain the results.
Like with any body sculpting procedure, liposuction has possible risks and side effects, such as infection, bleeding, uneven shapes, scars, and alterations in skin sensitivity. It is important to consult with board-certified plastic surgeons to discuss your goals, candidacy, and any concerns you may have before undergoing liposuction.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck, sometimes referred to as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that tries to tighten the underlying muscles while removing extra skin and fat from the abdominal region.
What does a tummy tuck surgery look like?
Tummy tuck surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. A lower abdominal incision is typically made by the surgeon, running from one hip to the other. Depending on the degree of correction needed, the incision’s length and contour may change.
Through this incision, the surgeon lifts the skin, removes excess fat, tightens weakened or separated abdominal muscles, and trims away any excess skin. The remaining skin is then repositioned and sutured in place.
Who is a tummy tuck surgery for?
Tummy tuck surgery is suitable for individuals who have excess abdominal skin, loose abdominal muscles, and localized fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. Women who have had many pregnancies or people who have lost a substantial amount of weight would benefit the most from it.
Depending on the patient’s unique needs, there are numerous tummy tuck treatment variations.
Results can vary as with any cosmetic operation dependent on personal aspects including skin elasticity and changes in body weight. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and weight management after the surgery can help prolong the results of a tummy tuck.
Mommy Makeover in NYC
A full range of body sculpting procedures known as a “mommy makeover” is intended to address the physical changes that can take place in a woman’s body after pregnancy and childbirth. It typically combines multiple procedures to rejuvenate and restore the breasts, abdomen, and other areas affected by pregnancy.
The specific combination of procedures can vary, but common components include breast enhancement (such as breast augmentation, breast lift, or breast reduction), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, BBL, and sometimes additional procedures like thigh lift or arm lift.
The goal is to address multiple areas of concern in a single surgical session, minimizing overall recovery time and providing comprehensive rejuvenation.
A mommy makeover typically begins with an in-depth consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon in NYC. During this consultation, the surgeon will assess the patient’s unique concerns, goals, and medical history. They will discuss the available options, potential risks, recovery process, and expected outcomes of the combined procedures.
This consultation is crucial for patients to understand the procedure, manage expectations, and make informed decisions.
Thigh Lift and Thigh Reduction Surgery
Thigh lift surgery, also known as thighplasty, is a body sculpting that aims to reshape and contour the thighs by removing excess skin and fat. It is an effective solution for individuals who experience sagging skin or loose skin in the thigh area due to significant weight loss, aging, or genetic factors.
There are different types of thigh lift procedures, and the specific technique used will depend on the extent of correction needed and the patient’s individual goals.
Thigh lift surgery can be performed as a standalone procedure or in combination with other body contouring treatments such as liposuction or a lower body lift. This allows for a more comprehensive transformation and improved overall body proportions.
Thigh lift surgery can help individuals achieve firmer, more contoured thighs, improving both their appearance and self-confidence.
A body sculpting procedure called breast augmentation, commonly referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is used to improve the size and shape of the breasts. It involves the placement of breast implants or the transfer of fat to achieve the desired aesthetic goals.
Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape sagging breasts. It aims to restore a more youthful and uplifted appearance by removing excess skin, tightening the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple and areola.
In some cases, breast lift surgery may be combined with breast augmentation to achieve both lifting and increased volume. This can be an option for patients who desire fuller breasts in addition to addressing sagging. The combined procedure involves placing breast implants during the lift surgery to enhance breast size and shape.
Breast lift surgery can help restore a more youthful and lifted appearance to sagging breasts, improving self-confidence and body image. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon is crucial to assess your suitability for the procedure, discuss available options, and determine the most appropriate approach to achieve your desired breast lift goals.
Non-surgical Treatments or Non-Invasive Body Contouring Procedures
Non-surgical body contouring treatments include procedures such as CoolSculpting and SculpSure. These treatments use controlled cooling or laser energy to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells without surgery.
In our Park Plaza Plastic Surgery Clinic, we offer SculpSure fat reduction.
What is SculpSure Body Contouring?
SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that uses laser technology to target and reduce stubborn fat deposits in specific areas of the body. It is designed to help individuals achieve a slimmer and more sculpted appearance without surgery or downtime.
SculpSure utilizes a specific wavelength of laser energy to heat and destroy fat cells in the targeted area. The fat cells absorb the laser energy, which does not harm the skin’s surface, and the body’s natural metabolic processes progressively destroy the fat cells over time. The treatment is FDA-approved and considered safe and effective for reducing unwanted fat deposits.
SculpSure is generally well-tolerated, and most patients report feeling a deep warmth or tingling sensation during the treatment. The cooling mechanism helps maintain comfort throughout the session.
It’s important to note that SculpSure is not a weight-loss solution or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. It is intended for individuals who have already made efforts to achieve their desired weight and body shape through diet and exercise but still have localized pockets of fat that are resistant to traditional methods.
Note that the results following non-invasive fat reduction do not compare to liposuction which results in maximal and permanent fat reduction in, generally, one session.
