Why Should I Consider Body Contouring in Los Angeles?
Diet and exercise are touted as the secrets to a fit, attractive body. For many of our patients, these important health habits just aren’t enough to achieve the desired results. Body contouring takes your efforts at a healthy lifestyle and enhances them, helping many patients to finally achieve their ideal appearance. Body plastic surgery can also repair damage after weight loss and pregnancy.
Excess skin with laxity, loss of breast volume with breast drop, and fat accumulation in undesirable areas are common complaints after pregnancy. We offer a mommy makeover to help restore a woman’s body after a baby. Our mommy makeover combines body contouring treatments like a tummy tuck and liposuction with other cosmetic surgery enhancements like breast augmentation.
The mommy makeover is ideal for women who are not planning future pregnancies. The results of a mommy makeover are dramatic and long lasting but can be affected by pregnancy or weight fluctuations.
Traditional weight loss methods lead to less fat across the entire body, but what about those trouble spots? For patients that are close to their ideal weight, but still have undesirable fat pockets we offer liposuction and liposculpture. This body contouring treatment removes unwanted fat cells from the body through small incisions using controlled suction. Sculpting and shaping are also performed at the same time, offering simultaneous shape improvement.
Achieve a tighter, flatter tummy with a tummy tuck. Loose skin and abdominal muscle separation keep many men and women from enjoying a flat, toned abdomen. Crunches don’t shrink skin or repair damaged muscles. You need more than a good core workout. A tummy tuck tackles common abdominal complaints by removing excess skin and fat, tightening the abdominal muscles, and providing internal musculature support. A tummy tuck is often necessary after pregnancy or extensive weight loss.
Dr. Bresnick performs tummy tuck surgery a little differently than many plastic surgeons. He uses multi-layer suturing when strengthening the abdominal muscles, creating a smaller waist and flatter stomach than is possible with traditional tummy tuck techniques. He also practices active scar shortening to minimize scarring and maximize results. We offer unique pain control options to increase comfort during recovery.
Loose skin on the arms is a common complaint for many of our female patients. This area is notoriously difficult to reshape without the help of a plastic surgeon. We offer an arm lift, a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms. An arm lift can also address skin folds and fat on the upper chest near the armpit.
Dr. Bresnick typically recommends arm lift surgery for our Los Angeles patients who have poor skin tone on the upper arm or significant quantities of excess skin, which is common after weight loss. The arm lift is a popular body contouring option after bariatric surgery. Although the procedure results in a scar along the inside of the arm, it offers dramatic shape improvements which often overshadow the tradeoffs made for the incision.
