Increasingly popular with women who no longer plan to have children and want to correct problems created by pregnancy or weight loss, the abdominoplasty (or “tummy tuck” as it is more commonly known) is a plastic surgery procedure offered and performed by Dr. Wells. Interested individuals in the Lexington and Louisville area can contact our offices to set up a consultation. The procedure is not for someone extremely overweight, but rather those that wish to get rid of bulges after pregnancy or weight loss.
Liposuction is a procedure we perform to correct those problem areas in patients that simply won’t go away with diet and exercise. The procedure, contrary to some beliefs, is not an operation for the obese patient and frequently not the best option for the “post baby tummy” (for the best procedure for the post baby tummy, see abdominoplasty). For saddlebags, flanks (muffin tops), arms, and knees it can be a great option. In the neck, particularly, it can have a dramatic impact on one’s appearance.
Lower Body Lift
Those who have realized massive weight loss, as well as some who have undergone numerous pregnancies, may find they are unhappy with the appearance of their lower body. Most commonly referred to as a “tummy tuck,” a lower body lift can remove excess, sagging skin at the abdomen to help return the body’s contour.
Having children can be a wonderful experience but not everyone who has experienced the beauty of childbirth looks great in a two-piece bathing suit. Today’s active mothers may not be content with sagging breasts from breast feeding or a protruding abdomen which frequently occurs after having children.
