Body Procedures Philadelphia
Body procedures can improve the aesthetics of various areas of the body according to the patient’s needs. These can be either surgical or non-surgical in nature. At Main Line Institute of Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body procedures in Philadelphia to meet the needs of our patients.
Abdominoplasty is a popular body procedure for patients with excess abdominal fat, drooping abdominal skin, and sagging abdominal muscles. Also known as a tummy tuck, this surgical procedure effectively removes excess fat and skin. In addition, it tightens the abdominal muscles.
For patients with less excess fat and skin, we recommend a mini tummy tuck procedure. This surgery creates a smaller incision compared to a regular tummy tuck. It also requires a shorter recovery time.
Drains are often placed to deal with the fluid buildup during the recovery process after a tummy tuck. However, for patients who find drains inconvenient and want to get back to their normal activities faster, we provide drainless tummy tuck procedures.
Arm lift surgery, also called brachioplasty, is ideal for patients with excess skin and fat in their upper arms. The fat is removed through liposuction, and then the excess skin is trimmed away.
BeautiFill is a complete body-contouring procedure that combines SmartLipo laser technology with the Lipo360 technique. This body procedure provides effective skin tightening and fat reduction.
The look of various areas of the body is not usually ideal after significant weight loss. In most cases, the process leaves the body with hanging excess skin and pockets of stubborn unwanted fat. Body contouring after weight loss provides a total-body-contouring treatment that includes liposuction, body lift, and fat grafting procedures.
For our patients who find their buttocks flat, droopy, or saggy, we offer buttock enhancement procedures. They can choose between a Brazilian butt lift and buttock implants to make their buttocks firm, high, and rounded.
A fat-grafting procedure is a body-contouring technique that transfers unwanted fat to areas that need additional volume. The excess fat is removed from a certain area and purified before being transferring to another area of the body via injection.
A labiaplasty surgery is a vaginal-rejuvenation procedure that reduces the inner lips (labia minora) to improve the appearance of the vagina.
Liposuction is a popular body procedure that is often performed together with other body-contouring procedures. Its main purpose is to remove unwanted excess fat from the body.
A mommy makeover is a body procedure recommended for women after childbirth and breastfeeding. It helps women regain their pre-pregnancy form. This procedure can include any combination of a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, a breast lift, and liposuction.
Patients may have excess skin and fat on their thighs after weight loss. A thigh lift procedure is the ideal body procedure for these situations.
Good Candidates for Body Procedures
Healthy patients with realistic goals are excellent candidates for body procedures. Non-smokers are preferred, and smokers will need to quit before their surgery. Candidates should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
We will discuss your goals and concerns during your consultation. A physical examination will be performed, and photos may be taken as a reference. We will recommend the right body procedure and present an ideal treatment plan. All your questions can be addressed at this time.
