You already know what your “bikini body” should look like. And you probably also know that your stringent diet and exercise program isn’t helping tightened that sagging abdomen and other areas of your body. Whether you need to tighten up post-pregnancy or even after bariatric surgery in time for bikini season, you are not alone.
In fact, it’s well known that for many people who have lost a lot of weight, some form of body contouring surgery may be the only way to flatten and tighten not only the abdominal area but also the flabby skin and tissue that’s accumulated on your upper arms, thighs, and back.
With summer on the way, now’s the time to get your body bikini-ready for the beach. Dr. Venkata Erella at Aspira Plastic Surgery is here to help with five plastic surgery procedures that will help you look and feel more confident this summer season.
A tummy tuck procedure can address excess skin and sagging tissue that may be present due to pregnancy, weight loss, or simply the aging process. It can also tighten stretched or bowed abdominal muscles.
Once you are in your ideal weight range, this procedure can leave you with a flatter, more toned abdominal area without that stubborn “pouch.” The incisions are typically placed out of sight below the bikini line.
Liposuction or SmartLipo
Despite following a healthy lifestyle, stubborn fat deposits can be impossible to shed without surgery. Liposuction is well known for providing significant results in removing stubborn fat from the abdomen, flanks, thighs, upper arms, under the chin, and even the back. With the fat removed, your body is sculpted to give you the figure you desire.
As an alternative to traditional liposuction, SmartLipo uses advanced and innovative laser technology to liquefy fat cells before their removal with a hollow tube known as a cannula. This technology’s main benefits over traditional liposuction are less discomfort, a shortened recovery time, less trauma to the body, and better skin tightening.
Arm and Thigh Lift
Even if you work out and eat right, you may have loose and saggy skin and tissue on your arms or thighs. You might need an arm and thigh lift surgical procedure to give your arms or legs a more contoured and toned look.
Women who’ve had children understand the effects pregnancy can have on the body, which include loose abdominal tissue, pockets of stubborn fat, and breast volume loss. With a mommy makeover, you can take care of these concerns by combining procedures like tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction/Smartlipo, facial rejuvenation, or other procedures. The possibilities are plentiful, and Dr. Erella will recommend the combination of procedures he feels will benefit you the most.
360 Body Lift
Excess skin and sagging tissue following significant weight loss can negatively affect your appearance, self-image, and confidence. With a 360 Body Lift, Dr. Erella has expertly mastered several surgical procedures designed to get rid of excess skin and flabbiness and lift and tighten the remaining skin. The result is a beautifully shaped physique perfect for that bikini!
