Even with the most targeted and consistent attention paid to diet and exercise, the body will often retain fat deposits or excess skin in a number of trouble spots. Through a variety of specifically focused procedures, Dr. Wirth can help by surgically removing the unwanted skin and fat deposits. In some situations, the removed fat may be reused elsewhere on your body to provide natural augmentation to your figure.
Patients who are dissatisfied with any particular area of their body should schedule a consultation with Dr. Wirth to discuss a procedure uniquely tailored to their needs. Call our Newport Beach plastic surgeon at (949) 238-6713 today to begin!
The arm lift procedure targets the accumulations of fat and skin that occur in the upper arms as a result of age, weight loss, pregnancy or even hereditary factors. Dr. Wirth may recommend a surgery that is minimally invasive, with a small incision hidden in the armpit, or may require a longer incision for more serious cases. Following the procedure, your arms will appear more youthful, toned and muscular, as the arm muscle hidden beneath the excess tissue will now be visible.
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Unfortunately, patients who have done the hard work of losing their excess weight are often rewarded with sagging, inelastic skin that cannot keep up with their rapid weight loss. Surgical contouring of the body by Dr. Wirth can help to restore a more balanced and proportionate appearance to the affected areas, creating a figure that better reflects the amount of work that has been put into your weight loss. Areas of the body that are often affected include the abdomen, sides, arms, buttocks, groin, and thighs, though the procedure may be specifically tailored to address any of your particular trouble areas.
The body lift procedure is the targeted removal of a circular apron of fat and excess skin from the abdomen area as a lower body lift (frequently a full belt lipectomy) or around the chest for an upper body lift. Dr. Wirth performs this procedure to improve excess skin and sagging in the buttocks, waist, hips, abdomen, and thighs all in one surgery, as the removal of this band of tissue around the body tightens and firms the remaining tissues. Liposuction may be used as well to remove any excess fat deposits.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian butt lift procedure provides a natural enhancement to the buttocks that is twofold, due to the combination of liposuction and natural fat injections. The liposuction is performed in trouble areas around the buttocks, abdomen, waist, back and/or legs which slims the surrounding area and makes the buttocks stand out in contrast. The liposuctioned fat is purified and reinjected into the buttocks as a natural augmentation, which tends to do very well due to its origination from your own body.
After the dramatic changes it undergoes during pregnancy, the body does not always return to its normal pre-pregnancy state, even after intensely targeted exercise and nutrition changes. For women who are dissatisfied with their post-pregnancy skin and body contours, Dr. Wirth may perform a personally customized mommy makeover procedure, which may entail a number of different surgeries to best address the patient’s concerns. Some of the procedures which are often included in a mommy makeover include a tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift, breast lift or augmentation, and liposuction for improved body contouring.
The labiaplasty procedure is a highly personal surgery that may be used to address any concerns in the area of the female genitalia, whether they are cosmetic, medical or comfort issues. One of the more common variations of this procedure is the surgical reduction of the inner lips of the vagina, which may hang downwards and outward, causing discomfort, self-consciousness and diminished sexual experience.
Often performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures as well as by itself, liposuction is one of the most popular and useful procedures in cosmetic surgery. Dr. Wirth uses liposuction to provide the targeted removal of excess fat deposits from trouble areas that have not responded to diet and exercise. Advantages of this procedure include small, hidden incisions, minimal downtime and effective results. The fat removed via liposuction may also be purified and reinserted in the body as a part of the natural and low-risk fat grafting procedure, which is often useful for augmentation of the buttocks, breast lumpectomy defects, and the filling of facial hollows, as examples.
The thigh lift procedure may be performed on patients who have excess skin, fat and tissue buildup in their thigh area that has not responded to exercise. Through the use of well-hidden incisions, Dr. Wirth will decrease wrinkling, sagging and dimpling in the thighs and create smoother and more toned leg contours. This adjustment may increase comfort in clothing, boost self-image and make physical activity more enjoyable.
The abdomen area is one of the most common places for excess fat and skin to accumulate, and it may be extremely difficult to address with nutritional control and an exercise regimen. Even following successful weight loss, leftover fat deposits and skin may often obscure the results. The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty procedure is an effective way to diminish the appearance of this excess fat and skin, resulting in a sleeker and smoother midsection that is more proportionate with the rest of your body.
