Liposuction can be an effective body contouring method for many men and women; however, a considerable number of patients need more advanced treatment in order to achieve the sculpted, toned figures they desire. If you are interested in having a smooth, trim stomach and have tried dieting and exercise to no avail, then a tummy tuck at our practice in Metairie, Louisiana, can offer beautiful aesthetic enhancement and shapely abdominal contours. If you have recently lost a lot of weight and are frustrated that your new figure is hidden by excess skin on your arms, legs, or other areas, then you may be an excellent candidate for the body lift procedure. Learn more about the body lift and tummy tuck procedures, as performed by renowned New Orleans plastic surgeon Kamran Khoobehi, M.D.
A variety of factors can influence the size, shape, and appearance of the abdomen, including the normal aging process, significant weight loss, pregnancy, and genetic disposition. For patients who have been unsuccessful in attempts to tone their midsections with diet and exercise, the tummy tuck can offer significant cosmetic improvement. With a tummy tuck procedure, also known as abdominoplasty, Dr. Kamran Khoobehi is able to create abdominal contours that are trim and smooth.
To begin the procedure, Dr. Khoobehi will make an incision along a carefully planned path across the abdomen. As a board-certified, nationally-acclaimed plastic surgeon, Dr. Khoobehi is able to place the incision so that it can easily be concealed by underwear and bathing attire. Next, he will tighten the abdominal muscles that have weakened and caused the abdomen to lose its shape. After removing excess fat deposits, Dr. Khoobehi will tighten and trim the abdominal skin. The removal of loose skin helps prevent infection and is an important health benefit of the tummy tuck procedure.
The results of tummy tuck treatment at our New Orleans practice are dramatic and long-lasting. Patients can enjoy having a flatter, firmer abdomen for many years, especially if a healthy diet is maintained.
We invite you to schedule a tummy tuck consultation at our practice in Metairie, Louisiana to learn more the results you can expect to achieve.
If you have gained and then lost significant amounts of weight, your skin may have been stretched so far that it lost its natural elasticity. The loss of skin elasticity can also occur as a natural part of the aging process. In either event, loose folds of excess skin may result on your arms, breasts, buttocks, hips, thighs, or abdomen. The body lift is often an ideal solution for patients who have undergone bariatric surgery and do not want their new, slender figures to be obscured by loose, hanging skin.
Dr. Kamran Khoobehi will tailor your procedure to remove excess skin wherever it is located on the body. Liposuction is often performed in conjunction with the body lift in order to maximize results. We invite you to schedule a complimentary body lift consultation with Dr. Khoobehi to learn more about the procedure and its benefits. We are proud to offer consultations in our handsome new office where you can share your treatment goals in a relaxed, soothing environment.
