Body Contouring from Head to Toe
Innovations in plastic surgery today have allowed us to sculpt and contour the entire body, from the head to the toes. A variety of procedures and techniques are not only customized to specific body areas, they are also tailored to the unique needs and desired results of each of our patients. Check out your options in body contouring from Ocean Plastic Surgery that can help you reach of all your aesthetic goals.
Face and Neck
A face and neck lift are surgical procedures that remove excess skin and tissue to sculpt the lower face and neck area. These procedures offer dramatic, long-lasting results, producing a much more streamlined and youthful facial profile. There are a variety of facelift techniques that can be used, depending on the amount of correction that needs to be done. Some patients may opt for liposuction of the neck area instead of a lift procedure if they have excess pockets of tissue with minimal skin laxity.
Whether your breasts are too small, too large or too droopy, there is a surgical procedure that can enhance your curves and bring your body into the proper proportion. Dr. Small offers breast augmentation using implants for creating additional fullness and curves. Breast reduction surgery decreases the size of large, heavy breasts, while a breast lift restores the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. Breast reduction can also be performed on men that have disproportionately large breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia.
The upper arms also go through changes over time, as skin laxity can create the appearance of “bat wings” on the underside of the arms. This concern can be addressed with a surgical procedure known as brachioplasty or an arm lift. During surgery, loose skin is removed and a smoother contour is created. Liposuction may also be used to remove excess fat from the upper arms to further enhance the results.
The midsection is a common concern for body contouring patients, particularly since diet and exercise are often unable to completely eliminate the “muffin top” or “spare tire” that tends to develop around the middle over time. To address these concerns, Dr. Small offers both liposuction and a tummy tuck to whittle the waistline. Your choice of procedure will depend on how much fat needs to be removed and whether there is loose skin to eliminate as well. Some patients will benefit from a combination of the two procedures, performed simultaneously.
The thighs are another common problem spot for patients looking to refine their body profile. For this area, Dr. Small offers liposuction to eliminate isolated pockets of fat that are interfering with your slimmer profile and your ability to wear smaller sizes of clothing comfortably. A thigh lift is also available for patients with significant skin laxity in this area, which removes the loose skin for a smoother transition from the hips to the legs.
Dr. Small also offers an option for patients that want to improve their body contour but are not quite ready for surgery. Vanquish is a revolutionary treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deep tissue of the body and eliminate stubborn fat. This procedure does not involve any discomfort and you may return to regular activities right after treatment. The procedure has been shown to reduce “belly fat” by 2-4 inches.
