Looking your best changes how you live your life. When you’re confident, people notice. But taking the steps to increase your self-esteem can seem like an overwhelming challenge on your own. Unwanted fat stands in the way of wearing what you want and seeing your best self in the mirror every day. Even the healthiest diet and regular exercise alone can’t get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and loose skin. That’s where we come in.
Every year, millions of people around the world decide to make a change. At Parkins Plastic Surgery, you’ll begin your transformation working with an expert board-certified plastic surgeon. Our team is experienced working with patients of every age, body type, and gender. Whether you’ve been struggling with your weight for years, recently reached your goal weight and want to perfect a trim figure, or want to turn back the clock after weight fluctuation or pregnancy, we can help you achieve results to last a lifetime.
There’s no need to be nervous or secretive about body contouring anymore. Celebrities swear by it, and modern advances in technology and surgical techniques have helped millions of people. In just the last four years, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has shown a 21.5% increase in these plastic surgery procedures.
Here are three of the most popular (and astounding) body contouring options we offer: liposuction, mommy makeovers, and CoolSculpting.
Liposuction is one of the best-known body contouring procedures, and for an excellent reason. This procedure allows Dr. Parkins to remove 50 to 70% of fat cells in a treated area. Recent advancements in technology have made liposuction safer, easier, and quicker than ever. You can receive liposuction to remove fat from:
Depending on the type of treatment you choose (and any combination of procedures), recovery time can vary. By itself, liposuction is generally an outpatient procedure. Patients who target small treatment areas like the abs, neck, or flanks can usually return to work in a few days and resume normal activities within two weeks. More substantial treatments may require some additional time off from both work and normal activities.
2. A Mommy Makeover
A mommy makeover is perfect for women looking for a holistic body transformation after the rigors of pregnancy, motherhood, and life in general. Dr. Parkins will build a unique treatment plan that combines any number of body, breast, and facial procedures for comprehensive or more subtle results. By combining procedures, you’ll save money and only have to plan for a single recovery period.
Tummy tucks are one of the most common parts of a mommy makeover. This procedure targets loose skin and diastasis (the improper reshaping of the abdominal muscles post-pregnancy). Dr. Parkins can use the tummy tuck to remove fat and skin while strengthening the abdominal muscles and creating a slim body contour.
You can choose to add breast augmentation to your mommy makeover to restore lost volume. Age, pregnancy, and breastfeeding all can affect the size and shape of the breasts. Dr. Parkins is an expert breast surgeon with an artistic flair and commitment to approaching each breast augmentation as a one-of-a-kind procedure.
For women hoping to improve breast positioning or worried about sagging and excess skin, a breast lift can provide stunning results. In combination with breast augmentation or by itself, during a breast lift, Dr. Parkins can remove excess skin to create a younger-looking breast contour.
Liposuction pairs beautifully with any of the other mommy makeover procedures. After pregnancy, even if you’re hitting the gym and eating a careful diet, you might not be able to lose all the baby weight. Liposuctions allows Dr. Parkins to spot treat any anxiety-provoking areas to create a harmonious, smooth body contour.
Other popular mommy makeover procedures include non-surgical facial rejuvenation with BOTOX® and fillers as well as labiaplasty. During your consultation, we can discuss the full range of options available.
CoolSculpting has taken the world by storm. This completely non-invasive fat reduction treatment is a favorite on red carpets and can reduce 15 to 30% of fat volume in a treated area. There’s no downtime necessary; however, results will gradually appear over several weeks as your body naturally absorbs the frozen fat.
Dr. Parkins can use CoolSculpting to treat the back, side (“love handles”), abdomen, thighs, underarms, and double chin.
