With a body lift, Dr. Stephen P. Hardy will use multiple body contouring procedures to achieve a dramatic cosmetic enhancement. We will work closely with you during the planning process to design a body lift treatment that can best achieve your unique goals. The procedures will then be carefully staged to minimize office visits and recovery times.
Commonly known as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is designed to give you a flatter, smoother midsection. Through a precisely placed incision, Dr. Hardy will remove excess fat and skin before tightening abdominal muscles for a more toned appearance. Abdominoplasty can be a great choice for patients who have recently had children or undergone weight loss surgery.
Liposuction offers a safe and effective way to eliminate pockets of fat that still remain after consistent diet and exercise. When performing liposuction procedures, Dr. Hardy uses advanced techniques, including tumescent and laser-assisted liposuction. These methods help us achieve optimal results while reducing discomfort and the impact on nearby cells.
Following pregnancy, mothers can be left with stretched skin, drooping breasts, and other cosmetic concerns. In these cases, we can create a personalized body contouring treatment plan known as a mommy makeover. Dr. Hardy will discuss your goals and then select a set of procedures that will help to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. Dr. Hardy believes that patient safety is best served by a customized, staged approach to surgeries.
Aging often causes skin along the upper arms to sag. In addition, some patients are left with excess skin around the arms after significant weight loss. During an arm lift, Dr. Hardy will remove the sagging skin and reposition the remaining tissues closer to the natural contours of your arm. Like all body contouring procedures at our practice, your arm lift will be personalized based on your goals.
A thigh lift is designed to eliminate sagging skin on the upper legs for a more toned and attractive figure. Dr. Hardy is highly skilled at performing several types of thigh lifts, including outer, inner, medial, and mini thigh lifts. In addition to trimming and repositioning your skin, he can also perform liposuction to eliminate excess fat.
If you have recently lost a significant amount of weight, body contouring can enhance the appearance of your newly slimmed figure. Dr. Hardy works closely with patients who have undergone massive weight loss to identify areas that can best be improved with body contouring. Then, he carefully stages procedures to minimize risks and recovery times.
