A mini-tummy tuck procedure often involves a combination of liposuction and the removal of loose skin without tightening the abdominal muscles. We refer to this procedure as the “Cherry Tummy Tuck,” named after our experienced Surgical First Assistant Cherry Fluker. Cherry is an instrumental part of these operations, lending her extensive knowledge and skills to our plastic surgeons to help them produce the best possible outcomes and beautiful new abdominal contours.
Mini-tummy tuck surgery typically requires a less extensive incision, leading to a scar that is not as lengthy when compared to a traditional tummy tuck. A mini-tummy tuck also usually results in a shorter recovery process. However, a mini-tummy tuck is designed to address abdominal concerns that are more moderate in nature. Patients with certain aesthetic goals and those who are affected by more severe levels of excess skin and muscle laxity in the abdominal area may be better-suited to a full tummy tuck procedure. Our plastic surgeon can help you determine the best option for your needs once you have been examined during the initial consultation.
The lower body lift can result in a total transformation of the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. This procedure removes loose skin around the midsection of the body and pulls the remaining skin taut for comprehensive recontouring and firming of the skin in this area. Lower body lift surgery can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have lost large amounts of weight and are experiencing an excess amount of loose, hanging skin in regions of the mid- to lower body. Since this procedure involves surgery that is performed on multiple areas, a recovery period of approximately four to six weeks is typically necessary; however, many patients are able to resume certain kinds of work and light activities after approximately two to four weeks.
Brachioplasty, commonly known as arm lift surgery, is a procedure that reshapes the underside of the upper arm from the underarm region to the elbow. Many individuals experience an excess amount of lax, inelastic skin that develops in this area over time, often having a noticeable effect on upper arm contours. In some cases, a collection of excess fat in the upper arms can contribute to the concern. An arm lift can remove the excess skin and redrape the remaining skin to provide a more youthful contour and smoother, firmer results. This treatment can also be combined with liposuction of the upper arms (if necessary) to produce the best possible aesthetic outcome.
Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgery for women seeking to address aesthetic or functional concerns with labial tissues. Pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, traumatic injury, the natural aging process, and even hereditary factors can lead to enlarged, stretched, or asymmetrical labial tissue. The condition is very common and can cause physical discomfort and self-consciousness. A labiaplasty procedure can remove excess tissue and reshape the remaining tissue to provide enhanced comfort and an improved appearance.
