BODY PROCEDURES | BODY CONTOURING
BODY CONTOURING SURGERIES
In general body procedures usually involve removal of redundant and sagging parts (e.g. Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty), removal of excess fat (e.g. Suction Assisted Lipoplasty or Liposuction), or reshaping of deformed parts (e.g. Repair of Post-Pregnancy Muscle Laxity/Diastasis Recti)). These procedures are usually required to correct sagging, deformity, and excess fat accumulation usually as a result of unhealthy eating habits, multiple pregnancies, and inadequate exercise. Of course genetics play a very important role in the development of such problems, but the acquired factors listed are the main causes, especially in the current life-style that the society has gotten used to. As can be seen from the list of procedures, there are a wide variety of procedures that individuals need, ranging from a Modified (Mini-) Tummy Tuck,to Extended Vertical/Horizontal (Fleur-de-lys) Body Lift. A specific category of these procedures involves patients who have developed redundancy (sagging) in different parts of the body as a result of “Massive Weight Loss (MWL)”due to for example a LapBand. Often times breast and body procedures are combined and multiple procedures are carried out in one sitting.
