Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Abdominoplasty or “Tummy Tuck” is a good operation for a woman who wishes to correct the changes of the abdomen after pregnancy. It is also appropriate for a man or woman who have lost weight and wish to shape the abdominal area further. Abdominoplasty can treat several areas of the abdomen. Extra skin and stretchmarks are removed, the underlying stomach muscles tightened and the waist shaped.
Liposculpture is a great tool to shape your body. Liposuction removes unwanted fat and is a generally safe procedure if performed by a properly trained plastic surgeon. The fat then may be injected into different areas of the body, such as the buttocks or face.
A body lift or circumferential trunk lift is an appropriate operation for someone who has developed a considerable amount of loose skin of the stomach and back following weight loss. The incision of the abdominoplasty is extended across the back. This allows Dr.Samimi not only to remove loose skin of the back, but often also to lift the buttocks.
Liposuction alone may reshape the inner and outer thigh, but can tighten the thigh skin only to a small degree. The inner thigh skin is difficult to treat with liposuction alone. A thigh lift can remove the loose skin and further improve the result. A thigh lift is especially appropriate after loosing a significant amount of weight as the weight loss often results in a large amount of loose skin of the inner thighs. Both the inner and outer thigh may be treated alone or together.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
Brachioplasty or Arm Lift is used to tighten loose and hanging skin of the arm. Weight loss or age can cause this looseness of the upper arm skin.
Small degrees of loose skin may be improved by liposuction alone. Often though, Dr. Samimi has to remove skin also to achieve an good result. Newer techniques allow for shorter scars, but often the full incisions are necessary to remove enough skin.
Buttock Lifts have become more popular over the last few years and there are a range of different procedures. Many women and men desire a better shape to their buttocks.
Fat injections can be used in conjunction with liposuction to reshape the buttocks and surrounding tissues. Dr. Samimi rarely uses buttock implants and prefers fat injections. This procedure often can be done in the office and uses very small incisions.
