When you’ve worked hard to lose weight, you deserve to enjoy the results of your efforts. Unfortunately, significant weight loss can leave you with skin that sags or lingering fatty spots, preventing you from showcasing your weight loss success. That’s why many men and women turn to body contouring surgery after weight loss.
Lipoabdominoplasty combines liposuction and a tummy tuck in what is known as a C.L.A.S.S.® tummy tuck. This procedure removes excess skin around the stomach, tightens the underlying abdominal muscles and removes excess stomach fat. The comprehensive nature of the C.L.A.S.S.® tummy tuck makes it a popular option for post-weight loss patients.
Despite a healthy diet and an active lifestyle, stubborn pockets of fat can remain in certain areas of the body. Your surgeon can apply liposuction to the thighs, buttocks, upper arms or double chin to remove subcutaneous fat that hasn’t responded to diet or exercise.* While liposuction is most commonly associated with the abdomen and thighs, this fat-reducing procedure can be used virtually anywhere on the body.
When it comes to fine-tuning your figure, not all patients want or need to undergo surgery to meet their goals. VelaShape™ is a nonsurgical contouring procedure that uses a combination of infrared, vacuum and radiofrequency waves. VelaShape™ can be used on its own or as a follow-up treatment after fully healing from body contouring surgery.
