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.
In the Brazilian butt lift, Dr. Obasi performs liposuction on an area where you have extra fat. After processing the fat to remove any impurities, he injects it into the buttocks to create a curvier look. Because the body reabsorbs some of the transferred fat, it’s usually best to combine this fat transfer with butt implants.
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.
Butt augmentation can be achieved in a few different ways, but the most common practice is supplementing the area with implants to make it appear larger and fuller. In some procedures, Dr. Obasi can harvest fat from other areas of your body and inject it into the buttocks to add plumpness. However, an implant augmentation procedure is a good option for patients with little fat to draw from.
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.
Childbirth, genetics, and age can all contribute to a loosening of the vaginal wall. Fortunately, women today can remedy this problem with easy cosmetic procedures. Vaginoplasty and Vaginal Rejuvenation are offered at Noble Cosmetic Surgery in Plano, Texas.
