What is Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)?
Brachioplasty is the surgical procedure in which the upper arm is reshaped to restore a youthful appearance. This surgery removes the skin and fat that creates the “batwing” appearance that occurs with age or major weight loss. In some cases, the surgical refinement of the skin and superficial tissue is combined with liposuction to achieve the best results.
What is Body Contouring After Massive Weight Loss?
Major weight loss has advantages and disadvantages. Weight loss surgery is on the rise with gastric bypass and gastric sleeve procedures. On the cosmetic side, many people who lose a substantial amount of weight are left with loose or redundant skin. This happens because the skin often loses its ability to retract once it has been stretched too far. Body contouring, or body lift surgery, is performed to reveal a slimmer physique. This procedure is often performed using a midsection incision situated just below the beltline. After the tissue is released, it is lifted upwards and smoothed to create new contours in the buttocks, hips, abdomen and low back area.
What is Liposuction & Body Contouring?
Liposuction is one of the leading plastic surgery procedures to date. This minimally invasive technique removes stubborn fat cells through a small cannula or hollow tube. Liposuction doesn’t only remove excess fat but it also reveals better contours in areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, back, chest, upper arms, and the chin and neck.
What is Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)?
Thigh lift surgery is often performed when a person has lost a significant amount of weight and has been left with loose, sagging skin. Sometimes, a thigh lift coincides with liposuction to achieve optimal results. During the procedure, the tissue is lifted and trimmed through discreet incisions to firm the contours of this area of the body. A thigh lift may focus on the inner thighs or the outer thighs to improve the profile of the upper legs.
What is Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)?
Abdominoplasty is a popular procedure for people whose midsection has lost its tight, tone form. There are several reasons why the abdominal muscles may become slack, including weight changes, pregnancy, and age. Due to the nature of these muscles, exercise may not tighten them to the desired degree. Tummy tuck surgery restores the abdominal muscles to their optimal form. This procedure also trims excess fatty tissue and skin to contour a smooth, flat abdomen.
What is Vaginal Rejuvenation?
Vaginal rejuvenation is a term that is used to describe procedures that improve intimate wellness and confidence. Vaginoplasty is one form of vaginal rejuvenation. This procedure tightens the vaginal canal, correcting the symptoms of vaginal atrophy that may occur with age or childbirth. The most common form of vaginal rejuvenation is labiaplasty. This procedure is performed on the external genitalia to improve shape and symmetry. During labiaplasty, Dr. Baylan can reshape the labia minora, the labia majora, or both. The labia minora are often reshaped and reduced to reposition them to sit inside the labia majora (outer pieces of tissue). Labia majora reduction may be performed when these pieces of tissue are asymmetrical or elongated.
What is Buttock Augmentation?
Buttock augmentation is also a term that may be used to describe several different techniques.
A common form of buttock augmentation is the buttock lift. This procedure addresses loose and sagging tissue by lifting and securing buttock tissues in a higher position. The lifting of existing tissue can give the buttocks a more rounded appearance but it does not add volume.
Patients interested in adding volume for better buttock contouring may benefit from fat grafting, also known as the Brazilian Butt Lift. This procedure obtains fat from another area of the body to insert into various regions of the buttocks to achieve more roundness and projection.
Finally, buttocks augmentation may involve the insertion of buttock implants to achieve better shape and volume.
