Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tuck surgery—medically known as abdominoplasty—is designed to remove loose, hanging skin and repair stretched and/or torn musculature throughout the abdominal region. If needed or desired, liposuction can also typically be performed to remove any localized pockets of fat in the region for a slimmer midsection and improved overall outcome.
Mini Tummy Tuck (Mini Abdominoplasty)
As its name suggests, a mini tummy tuck (or mini abdominoplasty) is a less extensive version of the traditional full tummy tuck procedure. This technique involves a shorter incision and is generally best suited for individuals who have poor muscle tone and minimal excess skin that is limited to the area below the belly button.
Liposuction can be a great option for men and women who are troubled by fat accumulations that remain resistant to dedicated efforts of diet and exercise. Dr. Kurkjian offers three different liposuction methods at our practice, enabling him to remove localized fatty tissue from virtually anywhere on the body with optimal safety and efficacy.
The term “mommy makeover” refers to a custom combination of procedures intended to restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy physique. While the exact treatments vary from patient to patient, many mothers choose to pair tummy tuck and liposuction with breast enhancement surgery to simultaneously address the most common areas affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Buttock Augmentation with Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift is an innovative butt augmentation procedure that utilizes an individual’s own fat to enhance the size and shape of the buttocks. Since fat tissue is harvested from elsewhere on the body via liposuction, patients also benefit from body contouring in the donor region.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Sometimes referred to as brachioplasty, arm lift surgery is designed to remove loose, hanging skin from the upper arms for a firmer, more toned appearance. This treatment can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight but are troubled by the excess skin that often remains.
Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)
Thigh lift—or thighplasty—can be performed on the inner and/or outer thighs to reduce drooping skin and stubborn fat for an enhanced upper leg contour. Depending on the extent of excess skin and fat present, an added benefit of treatment can also be the resolution of skin rashes and infections along the inner thighs.
Lower Body Lift
A lower body lift refers to a combination of three treatments: buttock lift, hip lift, and lower back lift. Much like arm lift and thigh lift surgery, this procedure can often be a great option for helping to eliminate extra skin and fat left behind after dramatic weight loss.
