Body Contouring After Significant Weight Loss

Body Contouring

Weight loss, however big or small, is a major accomplishment. However, those who achieve substantial weight loss may be disappointed by excessive skin folds or loose skin that cover up their well-earned results.

To combat this, many now elect for a body contouring procedure following significant weight loss. After this procedure, patients finally achieve what they hoped to with their dramatic weight loss, a better-proportioned appearance with smoother contours.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a procedure that eliminates or reduces the remaining excess skin and fat after individuals have lost a significant amount of weight. This procedure also improves the tone of the underlying tissue.

This procedure is not just for vanity. It is often necessary for a patient’s quality of life, as excess skin can make getting dressed or bathing a chore. It may also limit mobility and cause hygiene and medical problems. Chronic skin-on-skin contact can also result in rashes and other sores that can lead to infection. Many times, the only way to remove excess skin is through body-contouring.

Body contouring is not a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet. Individuals receiving body contouring should be willing to adopt a healthy lifestyle to maintain long-term results.

Who is a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

The best candidate for body contouring is a nonsmoking, healthy individual without a medical condition that could impair healing or increase the risk of surgery. The right candidate has also reached his or her goal weight and is committed to keeping it off with a healthy lifestyle and proper nutrition and fitness. Patients will benefit the most if they have excess skin in certain areas but minimal excess fat.

The ideal candidate also has realistic expectations for his or her results. While surgery can improve the overall appearance, every patient heals differently with varying results. During your initial consultation, it is important to talk to your doctor about the results you can expect.

Body Contouring Areas

Below are the areas most often treated through body contouring.

  • An arm lift removes excess skin and gives a tighter, more defined contour.
  • Buttock Augmentation transfers fat, uses buttock implants, fat grafting, or a combination of these methods to change the size of the buttocks.
  • Labiaplasty reduces the length of the labia minora.
  • Liposuction removes excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle.
  • A mini tummy tuck flattens the look of the belly and primarily focuses on excess skin and abdominal wall laxity below the belly button.
  • A “Mommy Makeover” is a set of procedures custom-designed for each patient to restore and invigorate a woman’s body after the physical effects of childbirth or weight loss.
  • A tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin from the waist, and in most cases restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is more smooth and firm.

A combination of surgeries may take place at the same time. For example, an “upper body lift” may include surgery to the arms, back, and breasts. A “lower body lift” will focus on the hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.

Procedure & Recovery

Most body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia. After surgery, tubes are usually placed in the wound to drain excess fluid, and patients are given medications to control pain and discomfort.

For the next two to four weeks after surgery, soreness, swelling, and bruising is normal. Most people can return to work after two to four weeks, but people with physically demanding jobs need to wait longer. During this recovery period, you will follow up at your doctor’s office regularly to monitor your progress.

Specific instructions may include avoiding bending, straining, or lifting for several days to weeks. Some patients may also need to avoid standing fully upright and stressing any internal sutures as they heal, and to sleep with pillows elevating the knees. To minimize the risk of blood clots, patients need to be up and walking as soon as possible and need to drink plenty of fluids.

Results After Body Contouring

Body contouring results are visible almost immediately; however, it can take a while to see the final results. The results are generally long-lasting, provided that the patient maintains a stable weight and general fitness. As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness. However, most of your initial improvements should remain.

Good Candidates for Fat Transfer

We all have areas of our body that store a little extra fat, especially as we age. There is now a safe and long-lasting procedure that helps the appearance of problem areas and provides natural-looking results. In fact, this procedure is so popular that many people have it each year. Read on to find out if you are a good candidate for fat transfer.

What is Fat Transfer?

A fat transfer is also known as fat grafting or fat injection. A fat transfer procedure aims to even out the body’s appearance by removing fat from problem areas and transferring it to other areas that lack volume. Fat can be taken from the outer thighs or abdomen and be moved to areas that need it, such as the buttocks, breasts, face, or hands.

Fat transfers are not only used to sculpt the body but to restore youthfulness to the face and eliminate scarring or depressions in the skin. It is also useful in correcting contour defects after breast lumpectomy and radiation therapy.

The most common areas enhanced by fat transfers are facial areas such as the cheeks, lips, and hollows under the eyes. Other areas are the breasts, hands, hips, and buttocks.

Why Consider Fat Transfer?

There are many good reasons to consider a fat transfer. This procedure is excellent for patients who want to rejuvenate their hands or face due to lost volume and wrinkles. This procedure is also a more permanent solution to what dermal fillers can provide. Patients that want to increase the size of their breasts and buttocks might also consider this option. Many people also use this procedure to plump their hands to hide aging, so the bones are not as prominent.

Using fat as a filler is ideal for its permanence and safety. There is no risk of reacting to a foreign substance in the body since this is your own fat. It also provides patients with the most natural-looking results.

Am I A Good Candidate?

A good candidate for a fat transfer procedure should be in good health and within a healthy weight range. Good candidates also need to have an area of substantial fat that can be used as a donor site.

As with any cosmetic procedure, patients will be happiest with their results if they have realistic expectations of the outcome. Suitable candidates should research to understand what a fat transfer can accomplish.

What To Expect

During the consultation, your doctor will review your medical history and establish if you are a candidate for a fat transfer procedure. Your doctor will also discuss the specifics of the process and answer any questions you may have.

Fat transfer procedures can take as little as an hour or up to four hours, depending on the areas treated. Your surgeon will numb the site that fat is taken from, then make a small incision and use a syringe to remove the fat. The fat is then purified and filtered before it’s transferred to small syringes. The placement is the last step of the procedure. Your surgeon will then prepare the site that’s receiving the fat transfer. A needle is passed in and out of the area, precisely depositing the fat in a natural grid. This process may have to be repeated several times to achieve the most natural results.

A benefit to this procedure is that it is non-invasive, so the recovery time is very short. You may experience temporary swelling and bruise in the areas where fat has been removed and grafted. The pain is usually minimal. The areas that received fat should look fuller and softer.

It may take a few months before the results look complete, and the results are permanent. In some cases, touchup procedures may be needed.

Options for Rejuvenating the Neck

Neck Surgery MCS

The neck is an area that is often overlooked during many skincare routines. Premature aging is often noticeable in that area, especially if the facial area has been kept youthful and smooth with fillers and botox.

Loss of contour in the face and neck is due to a variety of factors. As we age, wrinkles appear as the skin becomes loose. Weight gain can cause fat to accumulate under the chin, and vertical neck bands will form from contracting these muscles. Sun exposure, genetics, gravity, environmental conditions, and stress also play a part in a sagging neckline.

Although surgery was traditionally the only way to rejuvenate the neck, these days, less-invasive options exist. It’s now easier than ever to improve the neck’s appearance and treat the signs of aging. Read on to learn how to rejuvenate the neck area beyond cosmetic surgery.

Topical Products

It is never too early to treat signs of aging, and topical products make up the first line of defense. Skin will look older when it is dry and not properly moisturized, and dull from the lack of exfoliating. Maintaining a consistent skincare routine and applying quality products is essential to prevent premature aging of the face and neck. Choose products that contain growth factors to help repair and rebuild the skin’s integrity. Also, use products with peptides, antioxidants, and vitamins to keep your skin healthy and vibrant. Always apply sunscreen daily to prevent sun damage and premature aging of the neck.

Botox

Botox is an effective way to treat early muscular changes in the neck. Many people like this option because it provides them with noticeable results, no surgery, and no recovery time.

When Botox is injected into the neck muscle, it can help the appearance of lines around the neck look less conspicuous. Botox also softens the look of tight platysmal bands. Platysmal bands are two strips of muscles that start at the base of your neck and run up the sides of your neck to the jaw, into the area where frown lines are prominent. Platysma banding is also known as a “turkey neck”, which is more common in women than men. When Botox is injected into these bands, it tightens the lax muscles.

Injections take about 10 minutes and are typically recommended 3 or 4 times per year. Results from a Botox neck lift can last up to 4 months and, when maintained, can provide long-term anti-aging benefits.

Laser Resurfacing

Another great option that doesn’t involve surgery is lasers. Laser resurfacing is ideal for neck skin that is wrinkled from long term sun exposure and aging. It uses the energy from an intense beam of light to ‘wound’ thin layers of skin. As this resurfaced area heals, smoother, and tighter skin forms.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing is a treatment that can be used on the neck, chest, and hands to minimize wrinkles, sun damage, and age spots. CO2 laser resurfacing can effectively improve the skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and overall tissue slackening.

Each treatment is tailored to the specific needs of the patient. The whole face can be resurfaced in approximately 15 minutes using a topical anesthetic and a cold air chiller.

Cosmetic Surgery

Not everyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their neck needs neck lift surgery. If the concern is excess fat under the chin, this can be taken care of with a liposuction procedure. However, if there are loose, excess skin and muscle banding in the neck, then a neck lift may be the most appropriate choice.

A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that reduces the visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck. A neck lift procedure will improve the appearance of loose, sagging skin under the jawline and restore a youthful contour.

A neck-lift remains the best bet for a striking, lasting fix. During a surgical lower face and neck lift, the muscles of the lower face and neck are tightened, and the skin is redraped and sutured in place. The recovery time for a lower face and neck lift is typically two weeks.

Male Breast Reduction: Men Can Have Boobs Too!

Who can forget the iconic Seinfeld episode when Kramer invents “the Bro,” a supportive undergarment for men with enlarged breasts? He tries to help George’s father, Frank Costanza, deal with the discomfort of his “man boobs” by designing the man’s version of a bra. Unfortunately, Kramer and Frank can’t sell their idea, and it never takes off.

That plot in the Seinfeld episode is full of one-liners and goofy situations, which makes for funny television.

But for those men who suffer in real life from enlarged breasts, they’re not laughing.

In fact, “man boobs” will affect at least 30% of males in their lifetimes, according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information. This condition’s official name is gynecomastia. Those who suffer from it experience anxiety, psychosocial discomfort, and fear of breast cancer.

Treating gynecomastia becomes paramount to give patients overall health, wellbeing, and peace of mind. A male breast reduction procedure uses a combination of liposuction and direct excision to reduce the fat and glandular tissue from the breast area, producing a natural, more masculine chest.

What to Expect With Male Breast Reduction

The male breast reduction surgery requires general or local anesthesia — depending on the extent of your reduction — and is done on an outpatient basis. Once the excess tissue is reduced, you will be left with a flatter, firmer chest contour. The procedure is both effective and long-lasting in getting rid of your “man boobs.”

Male breast reduction side effects include swelling and discomfort following surgery, which can be controlled with prescription pain medication. You’ll be given an elastic pressure garment that you’ll need to wear for about two weeks following surgery to help reduce the swelling. Once your stitches are reduced (after two weeks), you can resume normal activities. However, strenuous exercise, sexual activity, or anything else that may risk a blow to the chest should be avoided. 

Male breast reduction surgery may be right for you if:

  • You are healthy
  • Your weight is stable and relatively normal
  • Your breast development has stabilized
  • You have realistic expectations

Schedule Your Consultation for Male Breast Reduction

Don’t suffer any longer with “man boobs”! The condition isn’t funny, and we can help you get the chest you want to see when you look in the mirror. Male breast reduction surgery works, making you more confident at the beach, in the locker room, or in the bedroom.

Three Key Things to Know About Butt Augmentation

Butt Augmentation

If you’d like to improve the appearance of your backside, a buttock augmentation is a popular choice.

As you research this procedure, consider these three key things to know about butt augmentation.

  1. Options for a Butt Augmentation

We offer two options for butt augmentation. Both are safe and effective, but our team can help advise you on which one will best suit your unique situation and help achieve your goals.

  • Brazilian Butt Lift – A procedure that does not require implants but uses fat from other areas of your body. During this procedure, the doctor transfers your body fat to lift the buttocks and create your desired shape.

    In general, you are a good candidate for a Brazilian Butt Lift if:

    • You want a buttock augmentation without implants
    • You have adequate fat stores in other areas to harvest for injection into the buttocks
    • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks
  • Butt Implants – This procedure starts with the creation of a well-hidden incision, typically in the center of the buttocks crease (the sacrum). A pocket is then formed above, below, or within the gluteal muscle. One of our surgeons then carefully places the implant within the pocket before completing the procedure by closing the incision with sutures.

    In general, you are a good candidate for butt implants if:

  • You want to increase the fullness, roundness, and projection of your buttocks.
  • You want to improve the balance of your figure.
  • You are willing and able to avoid sitting directly on your buttocks for several weeks.
  1. Your Shape Will Change

Even though butt implants produce immediate results, a Brazilian Butt Lift will take six months to a year for the fat transfers to settle.

Also, keep in mind that changes in weight could also affect your butt’s appearance and shape. It’s best to be at your goal weight before getting a Brazilian Butt Lift.

  1. Be Prepared for Post-Procedure Downtime

Recovery for either procedure is important and time-intensive. Even though you may be up and walking within a couple of days after a butt augmentation procedure, you will not be allowed to put any pressure on the buttocks for several weeks. This makes sitting, lying, and sleeping challenging.

During recovery, expect these restrictions:

  • You will not be allowed to sit or lie directly on your buttocks for at least 8 weeks after surgery. You will need to sleep on your stomach or side.
  • You will be given a compression garment to treat the areas where the liposuction was performed. You will need to wear this garment for at least 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Most patients will be allowed to resume all normal activities 8 weeks after surgery.
  • Even after the first 8 weeks of recovery, patients should still avoid sitting for prolonged periods of time and should use a cushion when sitting.
  • Be patient. After surgery, you’ll see a lot of bruising and swelling. It could take as long as 6 months before your body will reveal the final result. That’s all part of the healing process.

You, of course, should confirm your post-operation recovery plan with your doctor, but know going into surgery that the healing period may be long.

Eye Lid Surgery… An Eye-Opening Experience

You’ve tried all the makeup hacks to make your “hooded eyes” look more prominent, but they don’t seem to work. 

You continuously hear you look tired, and now you’ve also noticed problems with your vision.

It may be time for eyelid surgery to remove excess skin, lift and tighten the remaining skin, and give you a real eye-opening experience. 

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure among Americans. The latest statistics reported in Dermatology Times named eyelid surgery the fourth most popular procedure with 206,000 operations performed in 2018. 

Exposure to the sun and genetic predisposition can contribute to sagging skin around the eyes, and aging and gravity take their toll on the delicate eyelid area, too. It wrinkles and creases, causing deep lines, puffiness, sagging and drooping.

From a cosmetic standpoint, droopy eyelids can cause you to look older and more tired, but many people get eyelid surgery for health and wellness reasons. The excess skin can impair your vision.

What to Expect During Eyelid Surgery

Depending upon the extent of the surgery, the procedure will take approximately one to two hours. It can be done under general anesthesia with the patient asleep, or under local anesthesia in which the area is numb, and the patient remains awake.

The surgeon follows the eyelid’s natural lines and creases, making very fine incisions from the inner to the outer edge of the eyelid. On the upper eyelid, the incision is in the fold of the lid. On the lower eyelid, the incision is made directly below the eyelash or, in selected cases, inside the eyelid.

Excess fat and skin will are removed from the underlying compartments. The amount of fat excised is determined by the degree of protrusion of fat when gentle pressure is applied to the area. Small sutures are used to close the incision, and ointments and dressings may be applied. Since the sutures are in the eyelid’s natural creases, the scars are barely noticeable.  

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

If you don’t like the look of your eyelids or you’re having problems with your vision that may be caused by sagging skin on the eyelids, blepharoplasty may be a great next step. As long as you are in good health, a non-smoker, and do not have any serious eye conditions, you should be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

The best way to find out if eyelid surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our staff. We’ll evaluate your unique situation and help you decide the best course of action for your concerns or goals.

5 Reasons to Consider a Nose Job

Do you struggle with chronic congestion?

Is it hard to breathe easily?

Do you wish that your nose was smaller? Straighter?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty or a “nose job.”

People opt for a nose job for a variety of reasons, some of which are primarily medical and others are primarily cosmetic.

Read on to find out 5 reasons to consider a nose job as you research if rhinoplasty is the right procedure for you.

1.You have a deviated septum.

The septum is a wall of cartilage between the two nostrils and divides the nasal cavity in half. An ideal septum is centered in the nose and creates an even passageway on both the left and right side. A deviated septum, which occurs when the septum shifts away from the midline, can cause cosmetic problems, as well as issues with breathing.

Rhinoplasty can help correct this. You’ll both look better and feel better as correcting a deviated septum will restore visual symmetry and improve breathing.

2.You’ve injured your nose.

Following an accident or trauma that causes facial injury, your nose may not heal properly. The shape may be altered, or you may have trouble breathing.

Rhinoplasty, in this case, may serve two purposes: to return your appearance to your pre-accident look and to restore health.

3. You have a crooked or larger nose, a bump, a hook, or another unwanted characteristic.

Simply put, if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, a nose job can help! If you’d like a nose that’s slimmer, smoother, or smaller, then you may be a great candidate for rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty can correct all sorts of cosmetic concerns, such as a bump, a hook, a wide nose, a thick or bulbous tip, nostril size and position, nasal asymmetry, and nose size in relation to face size and shape.

4.You’ve had facial or nasal surgery for an unrelated issue (such as skin cancer removal)

A nose job was never on your radar—until now.

If you’ve had surgery to your face, nose, or upper lip for a different reason (such as skin cancer removal), the appearance and function of your nose could be impacted. Rhinoplasty can be critical in reshaping or reconstructing the nose and restoring both your appearance and health completely following these types of procedures.

5. You’re just not happy with your nose and the way it appears on your face

A primary goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a revised version of a nose that beautifully complements each patient’s unique facial features and beauty. If you’re looking for a natural update that will enhance your overall appearance, a nose job may be the perfect procedure for you.

What is the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss?

You’re likely familiar with the feeling of overeating: your pants are tight, you feel “stuffed,” and the thought of putting one more bite in your mouth is inconceivable.

The Obalon procedure for weight loss works a lot like Thanksgiving dinner or an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet does. The Obalon weight loss system helps facilitate weight loss by taking up space in your stomach so you eat less.

Three balloons are placed for a six-month, non-surgical treatment. This is combined with a professionally supervised nutrition and exercise program for optimal weight loss. With balloons taking up space in your stomach, you feel full quicker and eat less.

The placement of each Obalon balloon typically takes less than 10 minutes and does not require sedation. In our office, you swallow a capsule containing a small balloon and then the doctor will inflate the balloon. In the clinical study after placement. Most patients return to normal activities with no downtime.

Benefits of the Obalon Procedure for Weight Loss

Among the ever-popular effective, low-risk, and minimally invasive weight loss solutions, Obalon stands out as a proven success. Patients with the Obalon Balloon System and diet and exercise lost approximately twice as much weight as those with diet and exercise alone.

Some other benefits of the Obalon procedure include:

  • The Obalon Balloon System helps jump-start your weight loss journey for long-term results.
  • Average of 89% of weight loss was kept off at one year (six months post-removal) when combined with a moderate intensity diet and exercise program.
  • Less than 1% of adverse events were severe or serious in nature (see safety information).
  • First and only swallowable, lightweight balloon
  • Less expensive than weight loss surgery
  • Each balloon placement takes less than 10 minutes
  • No anesthesia needed for placement
  • Fully reversible

Tips for Choosing the Right Size Breast Implants

Once you decide to move forward with breast implant surgery, the next important decision is which size implants you should choose. It’s important that you weigh your options carefully with counsel from your cosmetic surgeon and trusted advisors.

As you think about your options, consider these tips for choosing the right size breast implants.

How to Choose the Right Size Breast Implants

  • Think about your physique. Consider your frame, height, weight, and shoulder and hip width. What size implant will best complement your body? Larger implants may be overwhelming on a thinner, more petite woman, while a taller woman who carries more weight could also accommodate larger breasts.
  • Consider your wardrobe. Want more cleavage for low-cut dresses? Larger implants may be for you. Concerned about maintaining professionalism and not calling too much attention to your new bust size? You may opt for smaller implants.
  • Take them for a test drive. Your cosmetic surgeon should have a way for you to give different implants a trial run. At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, we offer silicone breast implant “sizers” that you can try on during your consultation appointment.
  • Bigger is not necessarily better. Don’t get too attached to wanting a certain cup size. You may think that you need a “D” or “DD” cup, but ultimately, you need to make a size decision based upon what’s best for your body, and your goals, regardless of size on the bra band.
  • Listen to others. Your cosmetic surgeon has a great deal of experience with placing the appropriate size implants in their patients. They will help you evaluate all of your options and will consider important aspects, such as the amount and quality of the surrounding breast tissue. Your surgeon’s goal is to provide wise counsel that will result in a natural look that suits your appearance and lifestyle. You may also want to bring a partner or trusted friend to your consultations to help you evaluate implant size.

At Marvel Cosmetic Surgery, our staff is committed to helping each person choose the right size breast implant that best suits the client.

If you’re ready for Breast Augmentation, contact us now to schedule your consultation. Call us today at 615-538-0399, and we’ll be happy to answer all your questions about finding the right size implants for you.

 

Five Most Common Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men

Even though cosmetic surgery is generally marketed to women, more men today are opting for procedures that will give them a more youthful and powerful appearance.

Cosmetic surgery is no longer just for females, as men underwent more than 85,000 procedures in 2018, according to a recent report from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

The ASAPS identified these five most common cosmetic surgery procedures for men last year:

  1. Liposuction
  2. Breast reduction (treatment of gynecomastia)
  3. Eyelid surgery
  4. Nose surgery (rhinoplasty)
  5. Tummy Tuck

As men request cosmetic procedures, they are becoming more tailored to address men’s specific concerns. While many of the procedures are similar to those traditionally performed for women, there are subtle but significant surgical variations, which ultimately produce the most appropriate results in cosmetic surgery for a man.

Let’s look more closely at the top five cosmetic surgery procedures for men.  

Liposuction

Liposuction tops the list as the most common cosmetic procedure American men chose in 2018. Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction uses suction to reduce excess fat deposits between the skin and muscle.

Men with love handles or “beer bellies” that won’t disappear, despite spending hours at the gym, find that liposuction can get rid of the stubborn fat, giving them a leaner, trimmer appearance.

Breast Reduction(treatment of gynecomastia)

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by enlarged breasts due to an overgrowth of tissue. Male breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure that reduces excess glandular tissue and fat to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest.

Often called “man boobs,” gynecomastia is estimated to affect between 40 to 60 percent of men. Certain drugs, medical problems, and genetics can contribute to male breast enlargement, but there is no confirmed cause in the majority of cases. 

For some men losing weight can help reduce the appearance of enlarged breasts.  Frequently there is excess glandular tissue as well even for the most slender male patients. 

Male breast reduction surgery is an effective, long lasting treatment that reduces the excess tissue, restoring a more masculine and natural contour to the chest.

Eyelid Surgery

Wrinkles and deep lines, as well as puffiness on the lids, begin to develop with the passage of time. Aged, droopy eyelids can cause men to look old, tired, or angry, produce anxiety, and actually impair vision. Eyelid surgery solves that by removing excess skin and fat on upper and lower eyelids. It is often done in conjunction with other surgical procedures, including a facelift, eyebrow lift, and forehead lift.

Nose Surgery

Rhinoplasty reshapes the nose to improve its size, shape, or function.

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, reduces excess abdominal skin and tightens the abdominal muscles. Men have a smoother and firmer profile after a Tummy Tuck.

Many men also request Facelifts and Neck Lifts in our office, even though they didn’t make the top five list from the ASAPS. Both of these procedures rejuvenate the face, jawline, and neck by restoring sagging skin and other tissues. These help improve signs of aging and result in a younger appearance.

Men: transform your body with a cosmetic procedure

Men, if you’ve been considering a cosmetic procedure, you’re in good company. Don’t think of these surgeries as only for women. Thousands of men just like you are getting liposuction, breast reductions, eyelid and nose surgeries, and Tummy Tucks (and more!) each year.

Don’t wait any longer to make positive changes to your body. You’ll feel more confident and look trimmer and more youthful. Call 615-538-0399 or contact us today to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons.
