We all want more slender, flattering silhouettes, but attaining this result may not be possible through diet and exercise alone. For patients who have achieved a stable body weight, Dr. Burgess performs a variety of surgical body procedures including:
CoolSculpting is a breakthrough, non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to eliminate fat without surgery. This FDA approved technique will help to reduce fat in problem areas that may be resistant to reduction through exercise and diet.
Liposuction and VASER® Liposuction
Liposuction is a frequently-performed procedure to remove deposits of fat and tissue that cannot be lost through traditional diet and exercise. Liposuction has many uses, can be performed in many areas, and may be combined with other surgical techniques to achieve the desired result.
Excess skin around the abdomen following pregnancy, aging, a dramatic weight loss, or after bariatric surgery, can be removed and tightened with a tummy tuck procedure. This procedure may also incorporate liposuction.
An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is ideal for removing the “batwing” effect seen when a patient exhibits excess skin hanging from their upper arms. The procedure may combine liposuction and excision to achieve the desired result.
Improving contours of the inner or outer thigh can be achieved with a thigh lift. This may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Through these incisions your plastic surgeon will tighten tissues for a smoother, better toned thigh.
Following excessive weight loss, patients often turn to a variety of body contouring procedures to fully realize a more slender silhouette. These results may achieved through more than one technique including excision of excess skin and liposuction to remove stubborn fat and tissue deposits.
