A toned and well-proportioned body image is often associated with a healthy diet and exercise. But despite diet and fitness efforts, you cannot always achieve the look you desire.

Liposuction Surgery (Lipoplasty)

Liposuction is one of the most common procedures performed in our practice for both women and men in Palm Harbor and Clearwater. Liposuction surgery can treat resistant and stubborn areas of excess fat of the abdomen, buttocks, hips or “love handles”, thighs or “saddlebags”, calves, ankles, breasts (including male breast enlargement), back, arms and neck for both men and women. Liposuction surgery is performed to improve contour of these areas. Some Palm Harbor and Clearwater patients require removal of large volumes of fat (large volume liposuction) as part of a staged body contouring procedure. The results of liposuction surgery are usually long-lasting, but they can be affected by pregnancy, weight gain, aging, and lifestyle factors. All patients who undergo liposuction must be motivated to maintain their results through lifestyle modifications.

Tummy Tuck Surgery (Abdominoplasty)

For women and men who have complaints of excess abdominal skin and fat that is concentrated in the abdomen can benefit from a tummy tuck, or Abdominoplasty Surgery in Palm Harbor and Clearwater. Sometimes these conditions are hereditary, but for others substantial weight loss may cause abdominal skin to hang or become lax. Tummy Tuck Surgery treats excess skin and fat of the abdomen and also tightens muscles that have been separated or weakened over time with age, pregnancy or weight gain and loss.

Thigh Lift Surgery (Thighplasty)

Thigh Lift Surgery, also known as Thighplasty, reshapes the thighs by reducing the excess skin and fat, lifting and smoothing out the skin and improving the contour of the lower body.

Sometimes, your Plastic Surgeon may recommend Liposuction Surgery in combination with a Thigh Lift Procedure to reduce fat that contributes to a disproportionate body contour.
