Shed Stubborn Weight with These Surgeries
There is nothing more frustrating than dealing with stubborn weight. While diet and exercise may address the majority of extra weight you are carrying, there are some parts of the body that just refuse to comply with your hard work and clean eating. Fortunately, we offer several body contouring surgeries to help you finally lose those pounds once and for all.
A popular and trustworthy procedure for those who are looking to address fat deposits in a few areas of the body, liposuction can alleviate fat concerns on the chest, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, neck, upper arms, and other areas. This procedure is less invasive than others, extracting the fat with the use of a cannula, a small tube-like instrument that suctions out the excess fat in the target area through a vacuum process. Most suitable for individuals who have already reached a stable, healthy weight, liposuction focuses on contouring, instead of dramatic weight loss.
Most people have heard of a tummy tuck, a procedure designed to remove excess skin and tighten abdominal muscles. However, at Pollack Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer the Tummy Tuck 2.0. An innovative and effective approach to traditional abdominoplasty, the Tummy Tuck 2.0 does not use drains, causes less pain, leads to faster recovery, and reduces the need for most post-op pain medication. So whether your skin laxity and weak abdominal muscles are due to weight loss, pregnancy or the aging process, our Tummy Tuck 2.0 could be for you.
While children can be a gift, they can also bring about loose and sagging skin, fatty deposits, and stretch marks to several areas of the body. The mommy makeover was designed to address the unique concerns that each woman brings and can include the following: breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. We recommend that women wait until they have finished having children before electing to have a mommy makeover, as the results can be impacted by future pregnancy.
Many women with larger breasts know the discomfort and even pain that can come with being well endowed. In many cases, overly large breasts can make exercise challenging, cause neck or back pain, and even lower self-confidence. If the size, weight and volume of your breasts is causing you discomfort, a breast reduction can help.
