This is the heavy hitter here for improvement. The procedure, also known as a tummy tuck, is performed through an incision placed below the bikini line between the pubic hairline and naval. Fat and excess skin are removed, the belly button repositioned, weakened abdominal muscles are sutured back together and the skin stretched tight.
Also called suction lipectomy, removes fat through vacuum suction and it is usually incorporated in the process of abdominoplasty. Adding liposuction of the flanks is highly recommended since it helps re-shape the torso 360 degrees.
Laser Stretch Mark Removal
Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa is one of the first practices to offer treatment for stretch marks. The Icon Laser uses fractional technology to deliver pulses of light that target and break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production underneath the skin. The new collagen helps improve both the texture and color of the marks. Add this for a finishing touch.
