Surgical Weight Loss Procedures


Posted August 01, 2017 in Blog

There are multiple weight loss procedures that affect different parts of the body. We’ve compiled a list of four procedures you need to consider when engaging in your surgical weight loss procedures.

Body Sculpting in Atlanta, GALiposuction

Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, liposculpture suction, lipectomy, or lipo is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body. Most commonly, liposuction is used on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin, upper and backs of the arms, calves, and back.

During liposuction, the fat is removed through a hollow instrument which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula.

Tummy Tuck

During tummy tuck surgery, clinically known as abdominoplasty, a plastic surgeon removes loose skin, tightens the abdominal muscles, and eliminates stubborn deposits of fat. This proven surgical treatment can be thoroughly customized to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient. An experienced plastic surgeon can thoroughly explain these options and help patients arrive at a treatment plan that will give them natural results and an improved sense of confidence.

Body Lift

A body lift is a highly effective plastic surgery procedure for patients with excess skin, fat, and other tissues that linger after substantial weight loss. Depending on the location of the surplus skin, patients may choose to undergo either an upper, mid or lower body lift. For patients with significant amounts of excess skin throughout the midsection, lower body, and extremities, a combination of these techniques called full or total body lift may be the best option.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, which usually results in the nipple and areola being shifted to a higher position. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts.
