Many people seek body contouring both through traditional and new methods. There are several options you may be a candidate for. Dr. Newman will be happy to discuss these options with you. Two body contouring options offered by Dr. Newman include liposuction and tummy tuck.
Liposuction Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to sculpt your body and remove excess fat that doesn’t respond to traditional weight loss methods. The best candidates for liposuction are those who are at or near their ideal weight and have good skin elasticity and muscle tone. Liposuction is often used to treat:
- Inner and outer thighs
Abdominoplasties, also called tummy tucks, can help you obtain a more toned abdomen when diet and exercise don’t help. During a tummy tuck, Dr. Newman will remove excess skin, fat and may tighten the muscles of your abdominal wall. Men and women may be candidates for a tummy tuck if they suffer from:
- Weak abdominal muscles that cause an abdominal bulge
- Excess fat
- Excess or hanging abdominal skin
