How to Enhance your Waist with a Tummy Tuck

One of the most difficult changes that a woman’s body experiences as she ages is the loss of skin elasticity and firmness in the stomach area. Over time, events like becoming pregnant, weight fluctuation, and natural aging can stretch the abdominal wall and cause the skin around the stomach to become overextended and lax. Achieving a flatter stomach contour and a shapelier waist can be nearly impossible for some women through diet and exercise only. Regardless of whether they experience patches of stubborn fat that accumulate around the waist or a belly “pooch”, body contouring plastic surgery can be the best way for some patients to help trim their waistline and rejuvenate their appearance.

In many cases, undergoing a tummy tuck can significantly help women restore firmness to their stomach area sculpt out a more pleasing silhouette. During the procedure, I am able to remove excess skin and fat from the abdomen. I also tighten abdominal muscles which can often become loose over time (especially after childbirth). The result is a more toned, flatter abdomen that patients can feel great about. My tummy tuck method differs from other plastic surgeons as I use my signature Scarpa fascia technique for waist enhancement. In the video below, I explain and illustrate how I use the Scarpa fascia tummy tuck to help patients attain a better, healthier-looking waist contour:

For women who seek to regain their pre-baby body or those want to achieve a slimmer, better-contoured figure, I believe that a tummy tuck can provide excellent aesthetic results. To help find out if you are a good candidate for a tummy tuck or any other cosmetic plastic surgery procedure, please contact me, Dr. David Whiteman at Southern Plastic Surgery today. We offer complimentary plastic surgery consultations to our patients to help determine if plastic surgery can help you.

How Body Contouring Procedures Can Help Men Improve Their Appearance

Although in the past there was a perception that cosmetic surgery was almost exclusively for women, the truth is that cosmetic procedures for men become more and more commonplace every year. Because plastic surgery as a whole has increased in popularity, I have noticed a large influx of male patients seeking cosmetic alterations in recent years. And why not? In such a competitive economy, it makes sense that more guys would want to look their very best. Instead of detailing the entire menu of cosmetic procedures available for men, I have decided to focus on three of the most popular body contouring procedures I perform on male patients who seek to achieve a more toned, masculine physique.

How Body Contouring Procedures Can Help Men Improve Their AppearanceMany men strive for a trim, athletic-looking body contour. However, as the years go on, this can become challenging to maintain. Stubborn, excess fat can accrue over time in areas all over the body including the abdomen, flanks (or “love handles”), chest, back, and neck. Liposuction can effectively remove fat from these areas that can be virtually impossible to reduce with diet and exercise alone. Because most men’s skin typically retains elasticity longer than most women’s, liposuction can be even more successful in helping men tone and shape their bodies.

A flat, masculine chest contour is another crucial component of a rejuvenated, healthy-looking appearance. Unfortunately, many men suffer from gynecomastia, a condition in which an excess of glandular breast tissue can create enlargement in the male breast. While many guys may think this is something that can be improved by eating right and exercising regularly, true gynecomastia is caused by an imbalance of hormones, not weight gain. Meaning, to truly treat gynecomastia and improve their physique, male breast reduction surgery may be required.

Lastly, a tummy tuck can have a significant impact on guys who want to improve the appearance of their abdomen and waist. It’s common for guys to be left with excess, hanging abdominal skin after undergoing considerable weight loss. A tummy tuck can help guys flatten their abs by removing excess skin and fat while tightening the abdominal muscles and trimming the waistline.

There has never been a better time for men to improve their appearance with cosmetic procedures. From the body contouring procedures mentioned above to post-weight loss surgery, facial procedures, and more, guys have more options than ever to help them look and feel their very best.
