at Town & Country
Many of us work hard to stay in shape. Unfortunately, genetics, age, and pregnancy, among others, make it nearly impossible to maintain a youthful body contour throughout our lives. Body contouring can target common aesthetic concerns, including sagging or loose skin, localized fat deposits, or the lack of desired curves.
Why Should I Choose Town & Country Plastic Surgeons for My Body Contouring Treatment?
All of our body contouring treatments are tailored to your specific needs and with your lifestyle in mind. Plastic surgery is a big commitment, and we give you the time you need to process and make informed decisions.
Our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Yarish and Dr. Bartlett, are continuously studying and perfecting the newest and most advanced surgical techniques to ensure that your surgery is as safe as it could be and that your results match or exceed your expectations. We prioritize quality over quantity and go the extra mile to make sure your experience checks all the boxes.
Whether you are a woman who has had one or more pregnancies or a man who has lost weight and is fighting the “spare tire” around his waist, the abdomen is one of the most challenging areas to tone naturally. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, is the most effective way to achieve the flat, toned abdominal contour you’ve wanted. This surgery removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen, tightens the abdominal muscles, and reconstructs the belly button. Tummy tuck surgery is a favorite for both Dr. Yarish and Dr. Bartlett.
Mini Tummy Tuck
There is no equal to the traditional or extended tummy tuck in terms of correction; however, not every patient who struggles with lower abdominal laxity needs a full tummy tuck. A mini tummy tuck (mini abdominoplasty) follows the same principles as its predecessor; however, it is ideal for men and women who need less correction. This technique only treats the lower abdomen. Skin and fat removal, and some muscle tightening, is performed with a mini tummy tuck.
Women who have had one or more children often struggle with changes to their breast and body contours. These women simply want to feel like themselves again. Mommy Makeover surgery combines breast and body techniques that target the areas most affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. No two Mommy Makeovers look exactly alike, and this comprehensive body sculpting technique is tailored specifically to your needs. The surgery may include any breast procedure, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL)
Women who feel self-conscious about the appearance of a flat or unpronounced backside often turn to plastic surgery techniques to help add volume to their buttocks. While there are multiple techniques available to increase the size of the butt, one of the most popular techniques is the Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL). This fat grafting procedure uses a two-part process. First, unwanted fat is taken from the body, usually from the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and then it is replaced into various areas of the buttocks to increase fullness, shape, and lift.
Men and women of all ages struggle with diet and exercise-resistant fat across their bodies. While some have fat pockets localized specifically to their abdomen, others experience fat in the thighs, knees, arms, back, or even under their chin. Liposuction is a permanent fat reduction procedure that can help tone your physique by removing unwanted fat cells from the body. This surgery can be performed as a standalone procedure, or it can be combined with other body and breast surgeries to reduce unwanted fat.
The upper thighs are a common place for women and men to develop laxity. Whether it is extra skin and fat in the inner thighs, “saddlebags” on the outer thighs, or a combination of both, thigh lift surgery can be performed to tighten, tone, and sculpt the upper leg. This can create a thinner leg as well as a more defined leg shape by trimming excess skin, removing excess fat, and tightening the remaining tissues.
While not every woman feels comfortable discussing her labia, issues with their size or shape can cause significant emotional insecurities and physical discomfort. Genetics, pregnancy, and hormones can cause the labia minora (the inner lips surrounding the vulva) to stretch or enlarge. When this occurs, this tissue can show through clothing — a condition known as camel toe — and can cause physical discomfort when exercising or having sex. Labiaplasty, or labia reduction, is performed to reduce the excess labia minora skin and tissues. It has not only aesthetic but can have functional implications as well.
Many women and men struggle with loose skin and fat in the upper arms as they age and experience weight fluctuations. Unfortunately, the upper arms are notoriously difficult to tone, and since they are very visible, it is a common concern, especially in an area that experiences hot summers. Arm lift surgery, also known as brachioplasty, tones and sculpts the upper arms by trimming excess skin and removing excess fat. While this procedure does not increase the actual muscle, most patients feel like their natural arm tone is better defined.
While cellulite does not cause any physical complications, it is one of the most shared concerns among women and men. This is because nearly 80 percent of all adults experience some level of cellulite, usually in the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite develops when fat deposits become trapped in the connective tissues — this causes the dimpling, “orange peel” effect we often associate with the condition. Cellulaze™ is a minimally invasive treatment that releases the connective tissues so that the skin releases the pucker and allows a more smooth texture.
Many patients who lose moderate weight, undergo one or more pregnancies, or see laxity due to age experience some loose skin; however, this amount is not necessarily enough to require an excisional procedure. Fortunately, advanced radiofrequency technology can help you tighten your skin without requiring invasive surgery. BodyTite® is a minimally invasive technique that uses RF to heat the skin. This stimulates collagen production, which helps tighten skin and contour the tissues.
