Liposuction, Hips:Flanks, Abdomen Imagos Plastic SurgeryLosing weight and building muscle is a hard process. A person must be dedicated to their body goals and make a lot of sacrifices to achieve the physique they desire. However, our body issues may go beyond what diet and exercise can improve. Some people may have to look to plastic surgery to create the body shape they want. There may be just a few more pounds someone needs to address or excess skin they cannot get rid of without surgery. Body sculpting procedures are designed to remove unwanted fat and skin for healthy individuals. Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia can help you decide on the right body sculpting procedure to meet your anatomy and goals.

Eliminate Unwanted Fat

The older a person gets, the harder it is for them to lose weight. Diet and exercise alone are not always enough, and surgery may be the only answer for a person to meet their goals. Liposuction is a common procedure that patients look to for targeting fatty tissue and sculpting the body. Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia perform power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and VASERlipo®. PAL breaks up the fat using rapid vibrations for improved safety and results with a shorter recovery compared to traditional liposuction. Dr. Garcia does national and international training for VASERlipo®, which uses ultrasound technology to reduce fat and produce firmer results.

Flatten and Tone the Abdomen

Many people who have experienced pregnancy or massive weight loss are left with excess skin in the abdominal area that is uncorrectable with diet and exercise. Childbirth can wreak havoc on the abdominal muscles, leaving them stretched and weak. Tummy tuck surgery is an ideal solution for removing excess tissue and skin to flatten and tone the abdomen. An incision is made just across the pubic area from hip bone to hip bone. The extent of the incision will depend on the amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed. Through the incision, Dr. Perez-Gurri or Dr. Garcia can dissect excess fat and skin and elevate the abdominal region. The underlying muscular wall is tightened, and the remaining skin is redraped over the newly shaped contours.

Enhance the Size and Shape of the Buttocks

Some people were born with a small, undefined butt or have lost volume due to aging. The Brazilian Butt Lift is an ideal technique for creating a more curvaceous and attractive backside. The surgery is performed by taking unwanted fat from one area of the body (typically the abdomen, thighs, hips, flanks, or upper arms). The removed fat cells are purified and cleaned through a specially designed system that prepares them for fat transfer. The fat is placed in cannulas and then injected into the buttocks. Because the procedure uses the patient’s fat, it is a safe and effective surgery for augmenting the buttocks. Patients can achieve larger, more shapely buttocks that complement the entire physique.

Body sculpting is an ideal option for patients who are at or near their ideal weight and have a few pockets of fat they would like to target. Patients should be realistic in their expectations and want to have surgery for themselves. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons can provide you with all the information you need about preparing for body contouring surgery.
