Summer is quickly approaching, but if you’re feeling self-conscious about showing more skin due to poor body contour, there’s still time for a surgical procedure! There are many body contouring procedures available to target your specific concerns and help you achieve a slim figure. Find out which procedure can help you get ready for summer.

SmartLipo

SmartLipo is an innovative liposuction technique using laser technology to liquefy fat cells prior to their removal with a cannula. This offers many benefits over traditional liposuction such as less discomfort and a quicker recovery. You’ll still receive the effective results of traditional liposuction, but with less trauma on the body and even additional benefits of skin tightening!

Liposuction

It’s difficult to achieve a slim contour when stubborn fat is standing in the way. Unlike regular fat, stubborn fat deposits can be impossible to get rid of without treatment. There are many noninvasive fat removal options available today, however, known of them can give you the significant results like liposuction can! Liposuction can remove stubborn fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, upper arms, under the chin, and more. Not only is fat removed, but the body is sculpted to give you your desired figure.

Tummy Tuck

If your concerns are with your abdominal area, you might consider a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck procedure can address sagging tissue and excess skin, often present after pregnancy, weight loss, or with age. Once you are in your ideal weight range, the procedure can give you a flatter, more toned abdominal area. Incisions are typically placed below the waistband, allowing you to conceal any scarring.

Arm and Thigh Lift

Excess skin and tissue can also be present in the arms or thighs. While working out and eating right is usually enough to lose weight in these areas, a surgical procedure is often needed to address loose skin and tissue. An arm and thigh lift can tighten the area to give you a more toned look. The two procedures can be performed together, or you might just need one or the other.

Mommy Makeover

If you’ve had children, you understand the effects it can have on your body such as loose abdominal tissue, a loss of breast volume, and pockets of stubborn fat. With a mommy makeover, you can address these concerns with the use of a tummy tuck, breast enhancement, liposuction, and more for full-body recontouring. You can save time and money by opting to combine these procedures at once.

A surgical body contouring procedure takes some recovery time before you can enjoy your results. To learn more about how you can contour your body before summer, contact our office today! We can schedule your consultation with Dr. Erella to discuss your treatment plan.

Whether you’re a new mommy or a seasoned one, you’ve probably heard of someone you know undergoing a Mommy Makeover. What is it? It’s a set of procedures that aim to treat and reverse the negative effects of pregnancy and nursing on the body. The most popular procedures for a Mommy Makeover include breast procedures, like a breast augmentation, lift, or reduction, a tummy tuck, and liposuction. Since every woman’s body is different, this procedure is completely customizable.

Although it’s an invasive, surgical procedure, Mommy Makeovers are highly effective at restoring your pre-pregnancy body. Here are some reasons you might consider one:

Diet and Exercise Might Not Cut It

While a healthy lifestyle is a great thing, there are certain things it just can’t fix. Things like stretched, excess skin or stubborn fat deposits that occur during pregnancy can be there permanently. A Mommy Makeover can remove these, as well as stretch marks— it can also repair muscles that have become lax and ineffective at supporting the abdomen or pelvic area. These are long-term results that can recreate your healthy, contoured profile without the struggle of feeling like you can’t get results, no matter what.

You Don’t Have Any More Plans for Childbearing

While the results of a Mommy Makeover can be permanent and life-changing, they can also be reversed by another pregnancy. If you’re already considering a Mommy Makeover, this will be something you’ll need to discuss during your consultation. However, if you’re no longer planning on further pregnancy and are taking steps to avoid it, a Mommy Makeover can be a great way to feel like you’ve got your body back. Although you’ll never stop being a mommy, your body doesn’t always have to feel like a post-baby body.

You Deserve It

Birthing a child is hard, and it doesn’t stop there. But, that doesn’t mean you’re destined to feeling like you’ll never have your body back. Pregnancy can be one of the most drastic changes a woman’s body undergoes over the course of her life, and after all the difficulty and reward that goes with birthing and raising a child, any mommy deserves to feel her best and like herself again. A Mommy Makeover can restore confidence and the feeling of being desirable to mommies who feel like there are no options.

If you are a mommy who is considering restoring your body with a Mommy Makeover, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Aspira’s board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Erella can answer any questions you might have and determine the best treatment plan for you.

Having a child is an experience you will never forget. Unfortunately for many women, childbirth leaves them with stubborn fat and loose skin they can’t seem to get rid of. If you are one of these women you might be considering plastic surgery to get you back to your pre-pregnancy body. With a mommy makeover, you can combine and customize your procedures based on the areas you would like to target. Read on to learn more about the procedures that are often included in a mommy makeover.

Breast Augmentation

After pregnancy, you might notice your breasts have lost the volume and shape they used to have. You can restore your pre-pregnancy breasts with a breast augmentation. A breast augmentation uses implants to create fuller, perkier, more symmetrical breasts.

Breast Lift

Often combined with a breast augmentation, a breast lift removes excess skin from the loss of volume and sagging breasts after pregnancy. The results are youthful, well-shaped breasts.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a popular procedure to include in the mommy makeover because many women experience excess skin in their mid-section childbirth. This loose skin can be impossible to get rid of with exercise and diet alone. With a tummy tuck, loose skin and tissue are removed and the area is tightened to give you a toned abdominal silhouette.

Liposuction

Stubborn fat can be present on any part of the body after childbirth. If leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough to get rid of it, you might turn to liposuction. Liposuction can target the hips and buttocks, thighs, abdomen and waist, breasts, and upper arms. This body procedure is a good one to combine with a breast augmentation or tummy tuck to really tone and tighten the area.

Mommy makeover procedures aren’t limited to this list. Talking with your surgeon can help you decide what procedures are best for you. If you’re ready to take back your pre-pregnancy body, contact Aspira Plastic Surgery and Spa at (512)730-3885 to learn more or schedule your consultation with Dr. Erella.
