Liposuction

Liposuction | Berks County | Schuylkill County

Now among the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures, liposuction (also known as "lipoplasty" or "suction lipectomy") sculpts the body by removing undesirable fat from areas around the thighs, knees, buttocks, waist, hips, abdomen, chin, cheeks, neck and upper arms.  

Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but the procedure can eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight-loss methods, and improve body contour.


Thigh Lift

Thigh lifts are performed in order to tighten the loose skin of the thigh and buttock. The texture of the skin does not change as a result of this procedures.  Not all patients are candidates for a thigh lift.

The method of surgery is to undermine the skin and remove the excess. The incision is placed around the upper thigh and buttock, usually in a transverse direction. Many doctors recommend that some fat is suctioned at the same time. The operation is done under a general anesthetic.


Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck | Berks County | Schuylkill CountyDiet and exercise sometimes do little to eliminate unwanted fat and loose skin in the abdominal area. If you are bothered by these appearance problems, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a good choice for you. Abdominoplasty is performed to rid a person of excess skin and to tighten the weak abdominal wall muscles. This is frequently present in women following childbirth and after weight loss.

The procedure can be done as an outpatient or inpatient and sometimes can be done as a mini-abdominoplasty, which works mainly on the lower portion of the abdomen. Recovery period is anywhere from 7-14 days, depending on the extent of the procedure and the tightening of the abdominal wall musculature. Liposuction can also be performed at the time of this surgery.
