Cosmetic Body Surgery in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
Liposuction targets any excess subcutaneous fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Most patients are at or near their ideal body weight and desire permanent contour changes. Commonly involved areas include the neck, jowls, abdomen, outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, waist, knees, calves, and ankles.
VASER Lipo is the most gentle liposuction technique available. VASER Lipo is Tumescent Resonance Ultrasound followed by Fat Extraction, which describes what makes it different. First, tumescent fluid is placed into unwanted fat. Then, resonance ultrasound is used to shake the fat from the connective tissues so as not to disturb or damage them.
LiteShape™ Laser Liposuction
The LiteShape™ procedure is best for patients with small to moderate localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is most useful in areas that have loose skin as well as extra fat. Common areas include the neck, arms, abdomen, back, and legs.
The Exilis body shaping treatment is for the patient with skin laxity, cellulite, or small stubborn fat deposits of the body or face who opts for a totally non-invasive solution. Areas such as the neck, chin, or jawline, as well as the abdomen, hips, bra strap area, knees, and thighs, can be reduced in size and have the overlying skin tightened and smoothed.
Loose or sagging abdominal wall skin, sometimes combined with excess fat of the abdominal area and laxity of the abdominal muscles, can require surgical correction. This change in appearance is often a result of wide weight fluctuations commonly seen after pregnancies or bariatric surgery for weight loss.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Mini tummy tucks are done in patients whose skin laxity and muscle weakness extend only below the belly button. It is commonly combined with liposuction of the waist and hips.
When loose, sagging skin involves not only the abdominal wall but extends around the waist to include the side of the legs, hips, flanks, and buttocks, a more extensive lift called a body lift may be necessary. These are done after massive weight loss either due to bariatric surgery or dieting and exercise. Commonly, some liposuction is done at the same time.
An arm lift is done for patients with excess skin of the upper arm that can hang when the arm is in an upright position. Frequently, these patients have seen significant weight loss, producing the extra skin.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is a procedure to consider if a patient is looking to achieve a youthful, prominent, perky buttock and a more sensual-but-natural body profile. This procedure is done out-patient under anesthesia. Using Advanced Vaser Lipo, Dr. Salzman incorporates both internal and external ultrasound. Fat is removed around the buttocks, hips, and thighs, and sometimes the abdomen.
A Mommy Makeover uses a customized combination of procedures to change the ratios of bust-line and waist-line, as well as provide a flatter tummy. It may include a Breast Lift, Augmentation, or Reduction (any asymmetry will be corrected), along with a Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction.
Vaser lipo involves using ultrasonic energy to break fat deposits apart while saving other important tissues. This procedure also preserves the surrounding blood vessels and nerves. It does not matter whether you are looking for a small or dramatic transformation; you will definitely benefit from getting vaser lipo.
CelluSmooth® treatment was developed by Dr. Salzman using software changes to a dual wavelength body contouring laser developed by Sciton. The laser is used in a “burst mode” to sever the septa. The same laser is then used to melt the fat just under the skin and heat the dermis from the inside out to tighten the overlying skin.
Emsculpt® is a noninvasive treatment to tone muscle and eliminate fat.
