Gravity takes its toll on all areas of our bodies, but for women, perhaps none so severe as the breasts. In addition to gravity, we also have genetics, pregnancy, nursing and changes in weight to battle against. If you are dissatisfied with the sagging appearance of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for Breast Lift Surgery.
During a Breast Lift procedure the excess skin from around the areola is removed, the breast are lifted and the remaining skin is closed around the areola to create perkier, firmer and more youthful breasts. The areola can also be adjusted in shape, size or location to better complete the transformation in the most natural and aesthetically pleasing way. Some women may find that in addition to sagging, their breasts have also suffered a loss of mass. If this is the case, a Breast Lift in combination with a Breast Augmentation may be the best route to achieve your goals.
After a major weight loss, Body Contouring may be used to remove the extra skin on and around your arms, back, legs and stomach that was stretched when you were heavier.

The result is a body with smoother contours.
To ensure the success and safety of your body contouring procedure, we will ask you a number of questions about your desires, health and lifestyle. Your candidness with our surgeons during your consultation is very important.

Many people wish to improve the contour of the their arms. For some this is possible simply through diet and exercise, for others, particularly those with lose and hanging skin and those with concentrated pockets of fat in their arms, Brachioplasty, or arm lift surgery, may be the only way to achieve the results they want. Dramatic weight loss in one common reason people seek out body lift procedures to rid excess sagging skin. Aging is another common cause, as the skin’s elasticity begins to wear is also starts to sag. Arm lift surgery can give you leaner, firmer and more contoured arms.
During the Brachioplasty procedure excess skin is removed. The incision is done is the most minimally visible location possible which varies depended on the patient and the extent of the procedure. In some cases, Liposuction may be chosen to be combined with the brachioplasty to achieve the best results. The first step, however, is scheduling a consultation with one of our skilled plastic surgeons to find out if you are a prime candidate for the procedure.
