Achieving a sculpted figure through diet and exercise alone can be challenging. You may have a variety of factors working against you, including your age and a genetic tendency to store excess fat.
If your best efforts aren’t producing the results that you want, you might need a little help. At Revalla Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, we offer a variety of safe and effective body contouring options that can put your dream curves within reach – just in time for summer!
Many of us want to achieve a flat stomach. However, this area is notorious for accumulating excess skin and fat. Thankfully, a tummy tuck can help create the firm look that you desire.
A tummy tuck is an incredibly versatile and transformative procedure. First and foremost, this surgery can remove excess skin and fat. A tummy tuck may also improve the appearance of stretch marks if they are located on areas of excess skin.
Additionally, this procedure can be incredibly beneficial for women who have had children, because it can restore stretched or torn abdominal muscles. It’s no surprise that over 120,000 tummy tuck procedures were performed in the United States in 2017.
Liposuction is a time-tested procedure. It has been used to remove excess fat in a reliable, predictable way for decades. Unlike a tummy tuck, liposuction can treat a wide variety of problem areas. However, the two treatments can often be combined to produce excellent results.
Areas that are commonly treated with liposuction include:
- Upper arms
- Neck and chin
- Abdomen and waist
- Inner knee
VASER liposuction is an advanced method of liposuction that many patients find more comfortable than the traditional procedure. This treatment — also known as ultrasonic liposuction — uses beneficial ultrasonic technology to break down fat cells before removal. These ultrasonic waves are safe, and they do not affect the surrounding tissue.
Once the cells have been gently agitated by the ultrasonic energy, they are easily removed using a small tube called a cannula. This FDA-approved body shaping method often offers patients a shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction.
