Plastic Surgery for Your Body
Are you interested in cosmetic body sculpting? The following procedures are available and performed expertly at the Egozi Plastic Surgery Center located in Tampa Bay.
An arm lift reshapes the upper portion of the arm, from the underarm to the elbow. The surgery reduces droopy skin and tightens the underlying supportive tissue. Individuals choose this procedure when they notice loose or sagging upper arms, which can be caused by age, heredity or extreme weight loss. BodyTite is another minimally invasive option to tighten arm skin in those that do not need or want the more extensive arm lift procedure.
Do your thighs seem too large for the rest of your body? Are they sagging? During a thigh lift, also known as thighplasty, the surgeon tightens the skin to reduce drooping in both the inner and outer thigh. A thigh lift is desired by both men and women with sagging or dimpled skin on their thighs due to aging or a significant weight loss. BodyTite is an alternative minimally invasive option to tighten thigh skin in those that do not need or want the more extensive thigh lift procedure.
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty procedure, is the removal of excess skin and fat tissue around the abdomen, and the abdominal muscles are tightened as well. The result is a smooth, natural-looking abdomen. A tummy tuck is commonly performed on patients after pregnancy and childbirth or after a drastic weight loss.
The goal of body contouring procedures is to improve the body’s profile and overall shape with minimal recovery time. Men and women seek contouring to reshape body areas such as abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and thighs. Our minimally invasive BodyFX procedure tightens the skin and reduces fat — with little downtime or discomfort.
Liposuction removes excess fat deposits from the thighs, buttocks, hips, back, upper arms, abdomen, etc. A vibrating probe implodes the fat while leaving the tissue intact, thus preserving body contours and skin elasticity. “Lipo” is sought to improve the body’s proportionality, and to treat cellulite and saggy skin. Bodytite is an adjunct to liposuction by adding radio frequency waves to the skin after liposuction. Radio Frequency Assisted Liposuction (RFAL) generates moderate heat to the skin to tighten loose skin preventing rippling after liposuction. In addition, it restores collagen and a more youthful appearance to the treated area. Dr. Egozi’s preferred method is a combination of the tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction technique because it minimizes blood loss and emphasizes patient safety.
Several body contouring procedures are often performed at the same time to achieve better proportionality and results. A mommy makeover usually combines breast augmentation, tummy tuck, breast lift, and liposuction sculpting. Women who have finished having children often choose this surgery to get their bodies back to their pre-pregnancy youthful appearance.
