Being comfortable with your body can influence the way you interact with people and dictate your lifestyle choices. Many people have stubborn pockets of body fat that don’t go away with diet and exercise. Other people experience excess loose skin after dramatic weight loss, and they feel self-conscious about showing off their new figures. If you are considering a body sculpting procedure, our plastic surgery center offers a number of body contouring surgeries that can help you achieve a firm, toned figure.
One of the easiest and safest ways to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat on the body is liposuction. Many areas of the body can be unresponsive to diet and exercise, but the appearance of excess fat on a person’s body can take a toll on his or her self-esteem. By targeting certain localized areas of the body and face, such as the abdomen, thighs, hips, flanks (love handles), buttocks, neck, and upper arms, Dr. Foster can help patients attain a firmer, more sculpted body. Using a suction tube, the doctor can remove fat cells from these problem areas, leading to smoother skin and a fitter overall appearance. Liposuction also is effective for breast reduction. If you are considering liposuction as a body sculpting solution, contact our plastic surgery center to find out about the different techniques we use.
A sculpted, toned abdomen is something that both men and women desire, and a slim waistline is not always easy to achieve. Abdominoplasty, or a “tummy tuck,” can help patients attain a tighter abdomen for a more aesthetically pleasing midsection. During a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Foster manually tightens abdominal muscles, resulting in a sculpted, toned tummy that’s free from excess sagging skin. A popular procedure for post-pregnancy mothers, a mini-tummy tuck can be performed to remove excess skin, reduce the appearance of stretch marks, and permanently improve the proportion of a woman’s body after childbirth. If you are considering abdominoplasty for a firmer, flatter tummy, contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
