Excess fat pockets that stubbornly remain in areas such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, arms, and other body regions can be very frustrating. Fortunately, liposuction can often resolve concerns that even the most rigorous diet and exercise routines have not been able to successfully address. Advanced liposuction procedures from Dr. Shaw can significantly reduce excess fat and effectively renew body contours.
Tummy tuck surgery is one of the most popular surgical cosmetic enhancement procedures among both women and men. Medically referred to as “abdominoplasty,” this treatment can reduce excess, inelastic skin that has formed in the stomach area, tighten the abdominal muscles, and smooth out the remaining skin to produce a flatter contour and a more fit-looking abdomen.
With a comprehensive Mommy Makeover, you can address multiple aesthetic concerns that may have resulted from the physical effects of pregnancy, breastfeeding, and raising children over the years. Mommy Makeovers are customized procedures that can include a variety of advanced treatments, including breast augmentation, breast lift, tummy tuck surgery, liposuction, and others designed to help you renew your appearance with exceptional results.
If you are experiencing loose, inelastic skin that is affecting the contours of the upper arms, an arm lift (brachioplasty) may be the best solution. This treatment eliminates loose skin and tightens the remaining skin to create much smoother, firmer, and more youthful results.
A thigh lift can be an ideal treatment option for addressing an accumulation of loose, excess skin in the upper thighs. Thigh lift surgery can remove the excess tissue and pull the remaining skin taut to create firmer skin and enhanced contours.
Dr. Shaw can perform a labiaplasty procedure for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their genital area. The process most commonly involves removing excess skin from the labia minora, which are the two inner folds of skin on each side of the vaginal opening.
Not only can labiaplasty provide aesthetic benefits, but it can also boost self-esteem and alleviate discomfort from wearing tight clothing, exercising, or participating in sexual intercourse. Following the procedure, most patients can expect a minimal amount of bruising or swelling in the treatment area. These symptoms typically subside within a few days. Patients can usually return to normal, non-strenuous activities and light exercise after a week; however, women should not participate in vigorous exercise or sexual intercourse for about four to six weeks. With the techniques that Dr. Shaw utilizes, labiaplasty results can provide long-lasting benefits and improve quality of life.
