Our Most Requested Body Contouring Procedures: Liposuction and Tummy Tuck
Liposuction is a safe and effective body contouring procedure. While liposuction is not recommended for weight loss, it is a great way to smooth out curves and give those hard-to-control areas an extra lift.
Liposuction can often eliminate the need for more invasive body contouring procedures because once excess fat is removed, the skin’s natural elasticity will increase, tightening up and improving the appearance of the problem area.
Tummy Tuck surgery, another popular procedure offered at our practice, can help you achieve a trim midsection when diet and exercise fail. When performing this surgery, Dr. Ghaderi will remove excess fat and skin from the middle and lower abdomen and tighten the muscles along the abdominal wall.
The best candidates for tummy tuck surgery are men and women who are in good physical shape, but are bothered by loose sagging skin in the abdominal area. In certain cases, tummy tuck can be combined with liposuction for optimal results. Some patients also opt to receive a facelift or breast enhancement procedure with their tummy tuck for complete rejuvenation.
