Body procedures like mommy makeovers, tummy tucks, lower body lifts, and liposuction are some of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today. Dr. Patrick Obasi at Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano and Desoto, Texas, is here to discuss goals and help set expectations so patients can get the new body they’ve been dreaming of. With Dr. Obasi’s help, a whole new look can be just a few weeks away.
In a mommy makeover, Dr. Obasi performs surgery on the parts of your body negatively affected by pregnancy. This procedure includes abdominal surgery like a tummy tuck, back lift, liposuction, and scar revisions for C-section scars.
Many mommy makeovers also include breast surgery. Often a breast lift restores breasts to their pre-pregnancy position.
A tummy tuck is an abdominal surgery that eliminates extra skin and fat from the belly area. A tummy tuck addresses the area below the navel, while a reverse tummy tuck focuses on the area above the navel.
A traditional tummy tuck addresses the area below the navel. A reverse tummy tuck involves removing fat and skin from the area above the navel. Both procedures are similar in how they’re carried out.
Dr. Obasi can perform liposuction on nearly any body part where you have unwanted fat. The most popular areas for this type of fat removal are the mid-section or belly, the thighs, the upper arms, and the back.
A circumferential body lift is also called a lower body lift. In this procedure, Dr. Obasi removes the extra skin and fat from the abdomen, hip, buttocks, and thighs. Many patients who opt for this surgery have lost significant weight, so it’s a popular procedure among bariatric surgery patients. This surgery may also be appropriate for women after pregnancy or for anyone with excess skin in their mid-body area.
A Brazilian butt lift adds volume to the buttocks, creating a curvier and more shapely look. During this procedure, Dr. Obasi performs liposuction to areas of the body where there is extra fat. After the extraction and purification process, the fat is carefully injected into specific areas of the buttocks to achieve optimal results. As the body will reabsorb some of the transferred fat, ideal candidates for this procedure should have a sufficient amount of body fat for the transfer process.
A Brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an arm lift, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the underarm area and tightens the remaining tissue to achieve a firmer arm contour.
While not all scars can be completely removed, Dr. Obasi strives to make your scars as invisible as possible. Depending on the severity and location, he uses one or more surgical and non-surgical techniques to address the size, shape, color, depth, and location of the scar. He aims to reduce the scar’s noticeability while avoiding further damage to the surrounding skin or the scar itself.
A fat graft procedure involves using cells or tissues harvested from your own body to augment areas where your skin has lost volume. Tissue is taken from areas where fat is more readily available, such as the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. It’s then liquefied and injected into areas that need it.
