Over time, our bodies can develop areas of stubborn fat that become resistant to traditional weight loss methods. Even with a healthy diet and regular visits to the gym, it is common to struggle with some trouble areas where fat seems to simply stick around. Liposuction is an effective method to finally eliminate your specific areas of stubborn fat to provide you with the well-shaped figure you’ve been working toward.
After having a baby or losing a considerable amount of weight, it can be difficult to get your body looking the way you want. Skin laxity and bulging abdominal muscles are common problems that cannot be solved just by going to the gym and eating a healthy diet. With a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), you can smooth your body’s contours and achieve a flatter, beautifully-sculpted midsection.
Men and women with a large amount of excess skin along their upper arms often struggle with low levels of self-confidence and discomfort when wearing short or sleeveless tops. Unfortunately, after losing a large amount of weight, or simply with age, your skin loses elasticity and begin to sag or droop off your arms. Dr. Smith provides arm lift surgery to restore the appearance of well-toned and youthful arms.
Losing a large amount of weight is an extremely life-changing accomplishment. With it comes a healthier lifestyle and increased levels of self-confidence. However, it can be extremely frustrating if once the fat is gone and you’ve reached your goal weight, you are just faced with a new problem—loose skin.
The body lift is the next step following massive weight loss. Whether you’ve lost a significant amount of weight with diet and exercise or through weight loss surgery, a body lift can help to reduce excess skin and provide you with beautifully-toned contours.
