Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
At the Reviva Clinic, we see many patients who have tried without success to lose that extra paunch of skin and fat on their lower belly. We see this particularly true with women following childbirth or with people who have undergone significant weight loss. Where diet and exercise fail to deliver a sleek, toned abdomen, a tummy tuck often provides the solution for our patients. During a tummy tuck at our center, we make an incision beneath the bikini line from hip to hip and a smaller one around the navel. Once the skin and abdominal muscles are separated, we tighten the muscles of the abdomen, folds the skin flap back in place and trim away excess skin. The final incisions can usually be hidden beneath a modest bathing suit or underwear. After surgery both women and men, enjoy a beautifully flat and sculpted abdomen. In some selected patients, we can utilize a more minimal incision, often eliminating the need to cut around the navel. If you think you might be a good candidate for a tummy tuck, please let us hear from you today.
For many of our patients, maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly are not enough to remove the extra pockets of fat that often develop in the body's problem areas: chin, neck, arms, stomach, hips, buttocks, legs, or ankles. For these patients, we offer liposuction as a way of targeting these problem areas to give the body a more toned and sculpted appearance. When we perform a liposuction, we make a small incision in the target area. Next, a cannula (narrow tube) is inserted through the incision, vacuuming away and discarding unwanted fat. Liposuction, is a safe and highly effective procedure, delivering natural and pleasing results with a recovery that is often shorter than anticipated. If you would like to learn more about liposuction, please contact us today.
Massive Weight Loss (Bariatric)
With the recent popularity of Gastric Bypass surgery, many patients have successfully lost tremendous amounts of weight, but are still left with excess skin that can not only be unsightly, but may be prone to rashes and infections. Our team is expert in body-sculpting after gastric bypass surgery and performs procedures such as body lifting, thigh lifting, arm lifting, tummy tucks and breast lifts.
