As we age, many of us notice the elasticity in our skin is not what is used to be. A common concern is what is commonly referred to as ‘bat wings’, in other words excess upper arm tissue that is lose and ‘flabby’. This is an issue often accentuated with weight loss. An armlift is a body contouring procedure that can help you feel more confident in your body and is a procedure that is becoming increasingly more popular.
A problematic area for many people is the upper legs, whether this is due to the effects of ageing, weight-loss or simply the case of a stubborn area, resistant to diet and exercise. Some individuals find they feel self-conscious about their thighs and the saggy, excess skin. A thigh lift is a body contouring procedure that reshapes the thighs by removing fat and excess skin to create a smoother lower body.
It is important to understand that in some cases a thigh lift alone will not remove excess fat. If your skin elasticity is poor, liposuction as well as a thigh lift may be necessary.
Abdominoplasty surgery or tummy tuck is a procedure that helps people regain a more toned waistline by flattening the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen region.
A back lipectomy removes excess skin, fat and tissue from around your back area. This procedure is especially popular with clients who have experienced drastic weight loss. It can be performed to the lower, upper or flank area and is normally performed on both sides of the back.
Both of these procedures can be considered cosmetic or reconstructive, depending on what needs to be done and whether this is for aesthetic reasons or to improve the function of the body part. For the latter clients often look to vaginoplasty, which can be anything from tightening the vagina to removing excess skin caused by vaginal trauma. It reconstructs the vagina, often in clients after childbirth, and gives a tightened, smoother vagina. On the other hand, labiaplasty is more for improving the aesthetic appearance of the outer vagina - the clitoral hood, labia majora, and labia minora - which may have become enlarged, saggy or darkened. The alteration of these areas can be natural or from childbirth and pregnancy.
Liposuction is a procedure that will give you a fresh, trim body and get rid of fat from any pesky areas you are trying to shift weight from. Liposuction can be performed in various places, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, back, buttocks, knees, ankles, calves, arms, love handles/flanks, chin, mons pubis and the chest (in males). It is also possible to include more than one are on surgery day.
This procedure enhances and reshapes the buttock area in anyone who is after a shapely, uplifted buttock. The procedure includes placing gluteal implant (buttock prosthesis), or liposculpture (which is liposuction and fat transfer) to enlarge and reshape your buttocks. It can help create a more balanced look and also reshape any deformities, sagging, flatness and also any discomfort you have with your thighs. This procedure is common for transgender women who want to create a more feminine buttock and hip area.
