Now that summer is about over, it might be time to start thinking about fixes for those nagging body concerns that kept you out of your bikini this year. At Kovanda Plastic Surgery, we offer a number of options for whittling down your waistline and achieving a more streamlined body profile. Check out these three options in body contouring to see if you are ready for plastic surgery this fall.

Liposuction

If nagging deposits of fat are interfering with your look, liposuction may be the right choice for you. This procedure removes isolated areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Dr. Kovanda uses power-assisted liposuction, which removes fat cells with less bleeding and trauma to the treatment area. You get a smoother, more sculpted midsection with less discomfort and downtime than standard liposuction procedures. In addition to sculpting your waistline, liposuction can be used to trim the hips, thighs, back, arms and buttocks.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is another procedure that can trim down the midsection, while tightening up abdominal muscles and removing loose, excess skin. This procedure is more involved than liposuction, but the results are also more dramatic. Dr. Kovanda performs tummy tucks under general anesthesia and places the incision inside the bikini line so post-surgical scarring is not visible under clothing. This procedure can also be customized to your specific needs, with mini tummy tucks offering smaller incisions and excellent results for patients with less excess tissue and skin to lose.

Brazilian Butt Lift

Minimize your waist by making the most of your backside curves. A Brazilian butt lift offers the dual advantage of trimming excess fat from the abdomen while adding shape and fullness to the buttocks. The two-step procedure begins with liposuction of the midsection to eliminate fat that is interfering with your hourglass shape. The fat is then purified and prepared for injection into strategic areas of the buttocks, where it will create natural, beautiful curves. While this procedure does prevent you from sitting on your backside for a couple of weeks, the results of the procedure are both dramatic and long-lasting, with no post-procedural scarring in the buttock area.

Now is the perfect time to make those fixes to your body contour that plagued you throughout the summer months. At Kovanda Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kovanda works with each of his patients individually to determine which procedures will meet their needs and aesthetic goals best.
