Body Enhancement Procedures
Body contouring surgeries include various cosmetic techniques designed to contour the body and enhance a patient’s natural beauty. Dr. Chin offers fully customizable treatments that redefine and restore the upper and lower body.
As men and women age, they lose the properties and proteins that make their skin firm and elastic. Arm lift surgery (brachioplasty) helps enhance arm contour by improving the arms’ tone and definition. Arm lifts can benefit patients by tightening loose skin and restoring youthfulness to their appearance.
Dr. Chin will safely remove extra skin and fat from the upper arms in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Incisions from this treatment are made discreetly on the underside of the arm that often extend from the armpit to the elbow. This way, you can enjoy most activities without having anyone know you had the treatment.
Unwanted curves, bulges, and pudges often lead to unhappiness in your appearance. Men and women who receive liposuction acquire a more slender figure with defined contours. Dr. Chin can use a specialized cannula (thin tube) to suction excess fat from your problem areas.
Liposuction has the added advantage of leaving tiny scars—only ¼ inch—for inconspicuous and natural-looking results.
Fat harvested from a patient’s liposuction can also be grafted to other areas of the body for a more shapely appearance.
Mommy Makeover surgery is a comprehensive treatment for new mothers and women looking to restore their feminine and youthful physiques. Dr. Chin will combine multiple procedures to personalize your Mommy Makeover to your needs. These techniques may include a breast lift, breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, butt augmentation, or even labiaplasty.
Mommy Makeover is also ideal for women who experienced major weight loss after childbirth. Dr. Chin can include a lower body lift as a part of your treatment plan to boost confidence and recreate your pre-baby body.
Many women develop excess fat in all the wrong places. With fat transfer (fat grafting), women can remove places from unwanted locations and use it to enhance body areas where curves are desired. Fat transfer uses liposuction to harvest fat from undesirable areas. Fat is then purified and processed for reinjection into new areas. Applied strategically, fat injections can sculpt body curves, fill in wrinkles, and add volume to hollow or misshapen areas.
Fat transfer is a safe procedure with many applications for the body and face. For example, a natural and subtle increase in breast and buttock size can be achieved. Alternatively, fat transfer can be used to define or soften facial contours.
Significant weight loss is often accompanied by stretched and sagging skin. Body contouring after weight loss modifies specific plastic surgery procedures to tighten sagging skin and restore confidence. Surgeries that can be included in body contouring after losing large amounts of weight include a lower body lift, thigh lift, and tummy tuck. Dr. Chin may include a breast lift, breast augmentation, arm lift, and liposuction to enhance your upper body shape.
Patients who have undergone bariatric surgery or another weight-loss surgery are well suited for this body contouring technique.
Thigh lift surgery can improve thigh contours that have developed irregularities from the aging process or major weight loss. Thigh lift surgery removes excess skin from your thighs, giving your legs a tighter, smoother, and more youthful appearance. Patients can also eliminate unattractive pockets of fat and add definition to their thighs by combining their treatment with liposuction.
Thigh lift surgery can tighten and recontour aging thighs or thighs that are experiencing skin laxity due to other factors. A thigh lift can tighten the folds of excess skin on the inner thighs and, depending on your body shape, help you create the highly desired thigh gap.
Buttock augmentation with fat transfer (Brazilian Butt Lift) creates a curvier backside for women who have naturally small butts or seen their buttocks deflate after pregnancy or weight fluctuations. A more satisfying butt shape can be achieved with a Brazilian Butt Lift.
Butt augmentation with fat transfer uses purified fat harvested from unwanted fat pockets throughout the body. The Brazilian Butt Lift achieves results that look and feel more natural than implants. Dr. Chin can create a customized plan to attain an attractive and youthful hourglass figure.
Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) helps eliminate excess fat in the waistline and midsection that causes an uncomfortable and unsatisfying appearance. Men and women who receive this treatment achieve a more toned midsection, flatter waistline, and increased self-confidence. Tummy tuck surgery can remove sagging skin and stretch marks (if they are located on the skin that is removed). Weak or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) can also be tightened and restored for a firmer abdominal wall.
With labiaplasty, the appearance and comfort of the labia and vulva can be improved. This surgery trims or removes a section from each labia, minimizing the uncomfortable droopiness that can be seen in tight clothing or impact your confidence in intimate settings. Women who have experienced pregnancy, aging, and other conditions that changed their labia’s appearance can benefit from labiaplasty. Labiaplasty can boost emotional and sexual confidence, improve physical comfort, and restore a youthful-looking appearance.
