Each year, tens of thousands of Americans achieve significant weight loss through bariatric surgery or by following their own diet and exercise plan. As a result, they enjoy the increased energy and more vibrant body that come with a healthier lifestyle. But many are also left with an unwelcome reminder of their former selves in the form of excess skin and unwanted pockets of fat tissue. The solution: Cosmetic surgery in Milwaukee to create a more shapely body contour.
Your Plastic Surgery Options
The great news is that cosmetic surgery to remove stubborn fat or excess skin does not have to be a complicated procedure requiring weeks of downtime. Today”s advanced equipment and techniques allow me to provide Wisconsin women and men with significant enhancement and a comfortable recovery. Many people find that plastic surgery is the final step that helps them achieve their goal of a slimmer self.
Smooth Your Body Contour
The buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and lower abdomen pose problems for many men and women because those areas tend to exhibit skin sagging and hold onto fat even when the rest of the body has slimmed down following weight loss.
Some of the options for treating these areas include:
- VASER® LipoSelection, which utilizes ultrasound technology to liquefy fat and minimize damage to surrounding tissues
- Abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”) or mini-abdominoplasty, which tightens abdominal muscles and trims skin and fat for a flatter belly
- Body Lift, which can combine several contouring procedures including buttock lift and arm lift to achieve total body sculpting
Put Your Best Face Forward
The thinner tissues of the neck and jaw line often wrinkle and sag prematurely, especially after weight loss. They also tend to hold onto localized pockets of fat that create the jowls and deep creases that can add years to the appearance of your face.
A facelift is one of the most popular procedures I perform to improve facial contour and give a patient a softer, less wrinkled look through cosmetic surgery. Milwaukee men and women often choose to combine a facelift with a neck lift, in which liposuction techniques are used to gently eliminate fat deposits and sagging skin is removed to provide a cleaner, smoother neck contour.
Important Factors to Consider
Before you meet with your Milwaukee cosmetic surgeon to discuss options, carefully consider your expectations and your aesthetic goals. If you are healthy, have maintained a steady weight for several months prior to the procedure, and have a long-term plan for improving your body and enhancing your wellness, you should be a good candidate for a plastic surgery procedure. Even for relatively simple procedures, your surgeon should take an active interest in your long-term health and wellbeing. Cosmetic surgery in Milwaukee is an important step to help you realize the body you always wanted, so it requires a positive attitude and habits that demonstrate the quality of your resolve.
