How Are These Procedures Undergone?
A body lift surgery is not envisioned for removal of undesired fat. It is recommended in cases where skin elasticity is feeble.
ARM LIFT: a brachioplasty or arm lift procedure involves the extraction of fat from above the elbow to the armpit area and tightening of the muscle underneath. This is done by making an incision at the axilla or the armpit region and using a liposuction procedure, fat is further extracted.
BREAST PROCEDURES: a breast procedure may include breast augmentation, breast revision or breast reduction. The enhancement of the breasts is done using silicone implants, saline implants or your own body fat. Breast reduction is done by extracting the excess fat and removing the extra tissue from the breast area. Breast revision is a reconstructive revision surgery done to correct the previous cosmetic breast procedure.
THIGH LIFT: thighplasty or thigh lift surgery id done to contour the outer and inner thigh regions in order to address fat deposits and loose sagging skin, further reshaping and smoothening the thighs. This is done by making an incision around the groin crease, extracting the excess fat and tissue and tightening the skin.
ABDOMINOPLASTY OR ‘TUMMY TUCK’: a tummy tuck procedure involves making an incision into the abdominal wall exposing the muscle and fascia and extracting the excess fat whilst tightening the skin. The extraction of fat is done using the liposuction technique and the incision is closed using sutures.
BUTT LIFT: a butt lift surgery is done by extracting fat from the various other body parts and inserting that fat into the buttocks. The fat can be extracted from the arms, thighs, abdomen etc. the whole process involves extraction of fat, processing of that fat using decantation and centrifugation technique and reinjection of the selected fat droplets. Making an incision is not required and the extraction and reinjection process can be done using cannulas or sterilized hollow, thin surgical needles. The extraction is done using liposuction.
