There are various situations in life that can lead to changes in the way your body functions, looks and feels. Medical diagnoses, injury, pregnancy and natural aging can all impact the way your body looks and may be in contrast with how you actually feel inside. Whether a condition has been present since birth or childhood, or is something that has presented more recently, there is no doubt that these concerns can occupy a space in your mind that leads to stress and lack of self-confidence. It is perfectly reasonable to want your body to be in line with your spirit and to make positive changes in order to better align the two. Blaine Plastic Surgery offers a number of body-focused procedures (both surgical and non-surgical), any of which can help you regain that self-confidence.
Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contour and proportion. Liposuction can treat excess fat in various body areas including the inner and outer thighs, hips, abdomen, waist, flanks, back, bra rolls, chin and arms. The procedure itself can be performed on its own, but is often performed in combination with other surgical and minimally invasive procedures.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
A Tummy Tuck, also known as an Abdominoplasty, is the gold standard when it comes to addressing excess skin and laxity of the abdomen. This procedure addresses the entire abdomen by not only removing excess fat and skin but , in most cases, also restores weakened or separated abdominal muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother, slimmer, better contoured and firmer. At the time of a tummy tuck, we routinely perform some liposuction on the patients flanks to facilitate greater abdominal contour.
Mini Abdominoplasty (Mini Tummy Tuck)
A Mini Tummy Tuck offers many of the same great benefits of a full tummy tuck, with a less invasive approach that often requires less downtime. This can be a great surgical option for those patients that only require a small amount of skin and fat to be removed from the area that lies within or just above the bikini line. Since a mini tummy tuck does not address or fix laxity or separation of the abdominal wall muscles, it is important that those patients who elect for a mini tummy tuck do not have any compromise of their abdominal wall muscles.
A Body Lift surgically removes excess fat, skin and tissue of the upper, mid, and/or lower body, which is often the result of a substantial amount of weight loss. This skin and tissue that is most effectively addressed with a body lift has been permanently compromised to a point where surgical removal is the only effective option. A body lift will typically include surgery to the abdomen, flanks, buttocks and/or thighs to restore a more functional, natural silhouette.
A Mommy Makeover is a highly customizable combination of surgical procedures aimed at correcting post-pregnancy body changes. This customizable procedure will vary from patient to patient but most commonly includes procedures of the breasts and abdomen.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Commonly referred to as a BBL, a Brazilian Butt Lift procedure enhances, shapes and contours the buttocks and/or lateral hip depressions using your own fat that is harvested via liposuction from other areas of the body. A truly artistic procedure, the BBL creates a more curvaceous and feminine figure by removing fat from stubborn problem areas, often accentuating a patients midsection, back and waist, and enhancing the buttocks.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
A Brachioplasty, or arm lift, reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, extending from axilla (underarm) to the elbow. This procedure involves the removal of both fat and excess skin as well as the tightening and reshaping of underlying support tissues. A brachioplasty results in a slimmer and significantly more toned upper arm appearance.
Thighplasty (Thigh Lift)
A Thighplasty, Thigh lift, reshapes the upper thighs by eliminating excess skin and fat from the medial or inner thigh resulting in a smoother and better-proportioned overall thigh contour. A thighplasty can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, but is also commonly performed as part of a body lift.
An enlarged or misshapen labia can cause both physical discomfort and emotional distress. A labiaplasty is an fairly quick and life-changing surgical procedure that can both reduce (shorten) and reshape the labia minora. As one of the most common vaginal rejuvenation procedures available, a labiaplasty can significantly improve the lifestyle of a patient by reducing a common female intimate health concern that is most typically the result of genetics, childbirth and/or puberty.
Non-surgical Vaginal Rejuvenation
Vaginal laxity, vaginal dryness, and stress urinary incontinence are all common and natural outcomes of aging, genetics, lifestyle, pregnancy and/or vaginal childbirth. Viveve® is a gentle monopolar radiofrequency device that draws upon the body’s natural rejuvenation process to improve these conditions in just one in-office session. As an effective method of non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation, Viveve® is a one-time treatment that can also provide some significant improvement for external vaginal rejuvenation as well.
Body Tite is a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that uses directional radio-frequency (RF) to noticeably and effectively tighten and remodel lax skin of the body. This exciting procedure shapes, tightens, and lifts loose skin without the need for a scalpel or scar and can be used to address common areas of concern including the abdomen, thighs, arms, knees and chest requiring very minimal downtime.
Cellfina is an FDA-approved system that targets and treats the primary structural causes of cellulite. A one-time treatment, requiring only local anesthesia, Cellfina can permanently eliminate the dimpled, lumpy or irregular appearance of the skin and provide you with long lasting results and a smoother body contour.
