Body Contouring

Abdominoplasty

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, involves the removal of loose skin from the abdomen and sometimes tightening the abdominal wall muscles. The belly button is then relocated after the skin is removed. The best candidates for a tummy tuck are women following childbirth or after massive weight loss in both men and women. The skin and abdominal wall muscles are tightened and result in restoring your figure.

Liposuction

Liposuction is the surgical suctioning of unwanted fat collections from many areas of the body. It is used for localized collections of fat from almost any area of the body. It can be used on the face and neck, hips, thighs, abdomen, neck/chin, arms or chest. The technique requires only tiny incisions, so there is minimal scarring.

With liposuction, the goal is to improve shape and figure. The contours of the body are changed to create a slimmer figure. The best candidates for liposuction are healthy and relatively fit, have firm, elastic skin, and good muscle tone.

Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss has many benefits. However after any substantial amount of weight loss due to weight loss surgery and/or lifestyle changes, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size. This may leave empty folds of skin on the face, neck, arms, chest, breast, tummy, back and thighs. These excess folds of skin can cause problems with rashes, problems with mobility and exercise, difficulty fitting clothing and concerns about body image.

This surgery removes excess skin and is tailored to fit the smaller body underneath. The improvement in body shape can result in scars where the skin is removed. Terry has extensive experience in patients with massive weight loss and surgery to correct and improve their body shape and can advise the best course of action to minimise scarring.

Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty refers to a procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora. It is the most commonly performed female genital plastic surgery procedure.

Enlarged labia may interfere with self-confidence, sexual activity, and the activities of daily living.

During a labiaplasty procedure, Terry carefully removes any excess tissue and reshapes the region, yielding a more desirable shape. Particular attention is paid to the preservation of nerves to the region as well as the placement of incisions to avoid any changes in sensation. Terry will assess you and discuss what options may be suitable for you if surgery is desired.

Arm Lift

Arm lift, or brachioplasty, involves the removal of loose and hanging skin from the inside of the upper arm. This tightens the skin of the entire upper arm giving it a more attractive and youthful appearance.

An arm lift involves making an incision on the inside of the upper arm. Excess skin and soft tissue are then removed. The excess skin and soft tissue are then cut away. The incision is then closed, leaving a hidden scar on the inside of the upper arm, and resulting in a much better contour of the upper arm.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by removing excess skin and fat from the inside of the thigh. This tightens the skin of the thigh resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

If fitness and weight control efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you. Thigh lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. Terry can offer advice if a thigh lift or liposuction would be the best option for you.
