Improve your shape and physique with Body Plastic | Aesthetic surgery. Remove unwanted fat and skin from areas where there is excess. Whether you have had a significant amount of weight loss by diet and exercise, had a surgical procedure (lap band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass etc...), or just trying to enhance your already existing physique, a cosmetic body procedure may be what you need to achieve your desired look and improve your quality of life. Body contouring can involve procedures that can range from focused areas of liposuction alone up to extensive surgery, or sometimes a combination of both.

Is a tummy tuck right for me or do I just need liposuction? Do I need a body lift? If you have upper abdominal fat or fullness with excess skin a tummy tuck may be the best option. A tummy tuck procedure can also retighten the abdominal wall muscles which are commonly weakened with age or childbirth. The weakening of the abdominal wall can result in bulging of the area. This cannot be corrected with liposuction alone. Liposuction is good for minimal to moderate amount of fat that is localized to certain areas on your abdomen or back with good skin recoil or tone. It is great for sculpting an area. Sometimes liposuction is combined with a tummy tuck. If you have excess fullness or skin towards the back region and above the gluteal area, you may require a body lift | belt lipectomy to achieve the desired look. This essentially is a tummy tuck but all the way around your body in a 360 degree fashion. Please click the link for further details on tummy tuck, body lift and liposuction.
Do I need a thigh lift or arm lift surgery or do I just need liposuction? Frequently the liposuction is combined with surgery in these procedures, especially with arm lift. Liposuction can be performed by itself if you have good skin recoil or tone and not a great amount of excess skin. It can take up to 6 months or more to see the final result of liposuction and skin recoil. If you have excess skin however a removal of this skin may be necessary to get the desired shape and look of a well contoured arm or thigh with a Thigh Lift or Brachioplasty | Arm Lift. Typically a garment is worn after the procedure and activity of the areas is restricted for few weeks. Please click the link for further details on thigh lift or arm lift, and liposuction.
What about gluteal augmentation with fat (Brazilian butt lift) versus implants? If you are too thin or do not have a sufficient amount of fat to take from other areas and transfer into the buttocks then an implant technique may be needed for you. If you do have sufficient areas of fat to harvest from and transfer then a Brazilian butt lift may be the procedure for you. It involves liposuction around the buttock region to enhance the shape or outline followed by fat transfer to the region to increase the size of the buttocks. Dr. Parikh will assess whether you are a good candidate for fat transfer. Please click the link for further details on butt lift.
Regarding breast enhancement surgery do you have ptosis or sagging breasts? Do you want larger breasts? Do you want smaller breasts? Are your breasts asymmetrical? or do you want to exchange your previous implants to different ones? These questions can be answered with a range from simple placement of a breast implant (breast augmentation) to more in depth procedures like breast lift (mastopexy) or aesthetic revision surgery.
