Body Procedures

For some people, looking and feeling good means having a fit, well-proportioned body. Sometimes even a strict diet and rigorous exercise regimen are not enough to conquer stubborn areas of excess fat. If you are in search of smoother or better-proportioned body contour, liposuction from The Plastic Surgery Group may be your answer.

Liposuction (or Lipoplasty) is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure. In 2005 alone, over 455,000 people underwent liposuction. It is an excellent treatment for areas of localized fat which are resistant to diet and exercise. The abdomen, hips, love handles, inner and outer thighs, knees, ankles and neck are particularly amenable to liposuction.

In today's society having a flat stomach is important to a physically fit appearance. Many people labor intensively to achieve this goal. Healthy diets, strenuous workouts, abdominal gadgets all seem promising at first, but do little to eliminate accumulations of excess fat and sagging skin in the abdominal area. If you are bothered by appearance problems, a Tummy Tuck (or Abdominoplasty) from The Plastic Surgery Group may be a good choice for you.

A Tummy Tuck is a commonly sought after procedure, especially following pregnancy. Pregnancy causes the abdominal skin and muscles to stretch, and they often fail to regain their original tone after the baby is born. A Tummy Tuck is an excellent procedure to help you achieve your desired abdominal tone, and help remove some of the stretch marks of the lower abdomen that can result from pregnancy.

Have the negative effects of gravity, or massive weight loss left you with a surplus of sagging skin and soft tissue in the Outer Thigh, Inner Thigh, Buttock or Stomach area? For many people, eating right and exercising is not enough to replace the body contour that time and gravity have taken away. Our six Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons are here to help you defy the laws of aging and gravity.

Lower Body Lift surgery has been met with increasing popularity since its development over the past several years. Lower body lift involves re-suspending the skin and soft tissues of the thighs and buttocks and can result in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Spider Veins

Many people, women in particular, have problems with the development of unwanted and unattractive small veins of their legs and face. These veins tend to increase throughout life and are often related to occupations involving long hours on the feet. Common places for development of these veins are around the knees, thighs, and ankles. Some people also develop them on the face, usually around the nose. The spider veins can either be blue or red depending on how they receive their blood supply.

There is no association between Spider Veins and serious medical problems. Spider Vein treatment is considered purely cosmetic.

A very common yet not so publicly discussed subject is enlarged breasts in men. For men who are self conscious about the size of their breasts, male breast reduction surgery (Gynecomastia) is a good option.
