“The human body is the best work of art.”
Jess C. Scott
Time, pregnancy, heredity, age, and lifestyle all affect our bodies in various ways. Some of us notice fat deposits in places we’d rather ignore, while others have areas of sagging skin. An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, removes excess skin and fat to create a tight and flat abdomen.
Liposuction is an excellent modality which can target localized areas which have not responded to diet and exercise. The hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, and neck are all areas which can be recontoured. It is often performed in conjunction with other procedures, including abdominoplasty, to further refine the surgical results.
The “mommy makeover” refers to plastic surgery after pregnancy, and usually targets both the breasts and the abdomen to reverse post-pregnancy changes in our bodies. These procedures may be combined or performed separately, and generally include one or more of the following: breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, tummy tuck, and liposuction.
