Losing weight and achieving a toned body are not easy feats. Sometimes, despite all of the hard work and self-control that goes into diet and exercise, it seems like it isn’t enough. While it is important to continue to eat right and exercise, Aesthetically Yours also has several body contouring procedures to help you on your way to a body you love.
Contact us in any of our three locations in Annandale and Reston in Virginia or in Chevy Chase, Maryland, to set up a consultation today for any of these highly-requested procedures. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anne Nickodem and her trained medical staff will discuss what focus area you want to address and set up a personalized care plan that targets your main concerns and maintains your overall well-being. However, multiple body concerns may require separate consultations. Coolsculpting is another alternative for body contouring and targeted fat loss.
Our body contouring procedures are varied and include:
Commonly referred to as a “tummy tuck,” abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the middle and lower abdomen as well as tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall, creating a flatter and more toned stomach area.
Used to improve the abdominal, groin, buttock and thigh areas as well as smoothe out areas where cellulite is present, body lifts remove excess skin and fat for improved tone of the skin and muscles in those areas.
Brachioplasty “Arm Lift”
An arm lift targets the under portion of the upper arm, removing excess tissue and fat to reshape the area from the underarm to the elbow, creating tone and a giving the arm a “firmer” appearance.
This procedure removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the buttock, outer thighs, hips and back areas to increase tone, and can have different surgical tools and protocol depending on the existing tone and weight of the patient.
A common practice in the United States and globally, liposuction removes localized deposits of fat that do not respond to alternative forms of weight loss. Liposuction has been successfully performed in areas throughout the body, including face, neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
Medial Thigh Lift
Focusing on just the thigh area, this lift procedure reshapes the area by reducing excess skin or fat. This adjusts the contours of the medial thigh and removes cellulite, resulting in smoother skin.
Each procedure has its own risks and side effects and has various ways of being performed depending on each individual. Contact Dr. Nickodem and her medical team at Aesthetically Yours today to get your body – and your life – back.
