Body Contouring near Philadelphia, PA
Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs body contouring procedures for patients desiring plastic surgery.
As we age, strict diet and religious exercise are vastly important to maintain an ideal weight and a youthful-looking body. With the demands we have in our lives, however, we may fall short of a strict routine and find ourselves with stubborn fat or excess skin in areas of our body such as the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks that no amount of strict diet control or exercise eliminates. Body contouring procedures such as tummy tucks and liposuction can eliminate these problems, returning your body to its youthful, shape
Liposuction is a good choice for you if you have good skin tone. It can correct excessive, unwanted fat in localized areas such as your abdomen or love handles, neck, arms, and thighs. Often, stubborn pockets of fat might exist which no amount of exercise can reduce. If this is your concern, then liposuction may be right for you. Dr. Kole uses the SmartLipo® TriPlex™ to perform Cellulaze™, PrecisionTx™ and SmartLipo®.
Mini tummy tucks can be an excellent choice if you suffer from extra skin and weak muscles from the belly button down to the pubic area. In this procedure, the underlying musculature is used as a guide to elevate the skin and fat up to the level of the belly button. The external oblique muscles—the ones you improved with side crunches—are mobilized toward the midline, giving a nice trim waist appearance. This procedure is usually recommended for patients who have always been in pretty good shape but have plateaued with diet and exercise, and those who want to tighten the abdominal area below the belly button.
Many patients, especially women who are done with childbearing, are interested in having both breast and body lifting procedures simultaneously, which is called the Mommy Makeover. Weight loss after pregnancy can result in sagging breasts, extra skin, and fatty tissue on the lower trunk. This procedure allows the patient to go through just one surgery and recovery period to correct multiple issues.
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure in which the excess skin of the abdomen is removed and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened. If you have weak muscles after pregnancy or extra skin from weight loss, a tummy tuck may be for you. This is often accompanied by liposuction.
