Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure provides men and women with the flatter, more slender stomach and waistline they’ve always wanted. Not only does this procedure work to remove excess skin and fat, but it always tightens abdominal muscles, giving patients a much leaner stomach. With advancing technology, the tummy tuck procedure is now less painful and complex than before, leading to minimal recovery time and improved results!
If you have tried all the diet and exercise possible and still can’t seem to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits, liposuction may be the cosmetic solution you need. This procedure is also referred to as lipoplasty and works to slim down and reshape certain problem areas of your body that seem immune to weight loss techniques. Many patients see great results when targeting their arms, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen area. Liposuction removes unwanted fat in these areas and helps improve your body’s contours for the ideal image.
Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift is a surgical procedure that works to restore hanging skin and tighten the lower torso. In a lower body lift procedure, the target areas typically include the entire midsection and circumferential torso rather than simply the front-most abdominal wall. As such, a lower body lift procedure may address more areas in addition to the abdomen, such as the lateral thighs, buttocks, waist, and hips, all in one procedure.
Post Bariatric or Weight Loss Surgery
Following a bariatric or weight loss surgery, many individuals need additional cosmetic procedures to truly achieve the body shape they were striving for. Even losing weight naturally can leave you with an excess amount of skin and sagging in areas that don’t fit your ideal image. If your skin has lost its natural elasticity, our post bariatric body sculpting and contouring treatments can work to restore the tightness and enhance your shape. Don’t live with those unwanted sagging areas of skin any longer! Dr. Wall is ready to help you say goodbye to the old you once and for all.
A panniculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and tissue from the lower abdomen. Sometimes this excess skin is called an “apron”. Unlike a tummy tuck, a panniculectomy is not a cosmetic procedure. It does not tighten the abdominal muscles. Despite this, it can make your abdominal area flatter. Your surgical team can also perform a panniculectomy alongside a tummy tuck or other abdominal procedures.
Since the abdomen and breasts are the primary areas affected by pregnancy, a mommy makeover often centers around breast and abdominal procedures. Mommy makeovers are personalized to each patient’s individual needs, but often, they include some combination of the following: breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and circumferential abdominoplasty.
For those that would like to enhance the natural volume, shape, and size of their buttock, gluteal augmentation, such as a Brazilian butt lift, is the perfect solution. This procedure can boost those flat gluteal areas into to curvy, shapelier buttocks. Whether you want that extra confidence on the beach, at the gym, or out on the town, gluteal augmentation can deliver. Dr. Wall will review your buttock lift goals with you and help you maintain realistic expectations. Once your cosmetic goals are understood, he will work with you to plan out the procedure.
Morpheus8 is a radio frequency micro-needling treatment. The fractionated radiofrequency energy targets deeper layers of skin, contouring the face and the body. Morpheus8 does not simply resurface the top layer of skin. The fractionated energy reaches below this top layer into the architecture of the skin, reshaping and resurfacing it at the deepest level of tissue. During the procedure, your doctor will make microscopic puncture marks in the skin with tiny needles. A topical anesthetic is used to minimize pain and discomfort. This will force the dermis to create new collagen in order to repair itself. Morpheus8 also delivers heat energy below this superficial layer of skin and remodels the adipose fat in this sub-dermal layer of skin. It is the only treatment that targets this deeper tissue.
If you’ve ever wanted body contouring or refinement but don’t want the long downtimes or risks of surgery, BodyTite may be an option for you. BodyTite is a minimally invasive device that uses RFAL (radio-frequency assisted lipolysis) to achieve body contouring and refining. The BodyTite handpiece includes a thin wand, which your doctor will place underneath the skin. This wand will transmit radio-frequency energy back to the handpiece on top of the skin. This creates heat, which melts the fat in the treatment area and tightens skin. The radiofrequency energy also stimulates the growth of new collagen, which further tightens and lifts the treatment area. The results BodyTite produces were previously only possible with invasive excisional surgeries.
