LIPOSUCTION (TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION SURGERY)
Many patients visit Rosenberg Plastic Surgery for help in removing small pockets of excess fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise. Dr. David Rosenberg performs liposuction in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach, and focuses on tumescent-style liposuction surgery, which reduces pain from the procedure. Liposuction is generally performed on patients near normal weight who desire a permanent improvement in the contour and proportion of their bodies. However, thanks to new tumescent liposuction surgery techniques that allow larger amounts of fat removal, liposuction can now be useful to treat heavier people as well. In many cases, liposuction can be done without general anesthesia, using “twilight” sedation instead. Speak with Dr. Rosenberg regarding this option if you are interested.
TUMMY TUCK / ABDOMINOPLASTY
“Tummy tucks are one of my favorite operations”, Dr. Rosenberg can often be heard saying. He has years of experience helping patients who suffer from weakened abdominal muscles or loose and sagging skin on the stomach – a frequent result of multiple pregnancies, weight loss, or previous surgery. A tummy tuck can tighten the abdominal wall skin and produce a smoother, flatter abdomen. Dr. Rosenberg performs a wide range of tummy tuck procedures, including the mini tummy tuck and modified abdominoplasty, and even full body lifts. He customizes each treatment plan to meet the individual needs of his patients. In some cases, abdominoplasty may also be combined with liposuction for enhanced body contouring results.
After massive weight loss, whether following gastric bypass, lap band, or simply improved diet and exercise, many women are left with unattractive rolls of skin which did not “snap back” following their weight loss. Surgery can be done to lift the rear end as well as flatten the tummy, all at the same operation. Dr. Rosenberg has a great deal of experience in performing circumferential body lifts, particularly methods that leave fine, narrow scars following the procedure. Our office can also work with you on pricing, to help ease your ability to finance the procedure.
BUTTOCK OR THIGH LIFT
Many people with loose, hanging skin on the thighs, hips, or buttocks feel self-conscious about the appearance of their lower bodies. A buttock or thigh lift can remove excess skin and tissue, producing a tighter, more attractive lower body and decreased irregularities in the skin surface. Many people who lose a significant amount of weight experience excess skin on the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks, so patients often combine a buttock or thigh lift with a tummy tuck. Dr. Rosenberg performs a broad range of thigh-buttocks lifts depending on your needs, and he can offer wide variations in the design of the incisions to meet your personal desires.
UPPER ARM LIFT
If you suffer from unsightly, sagging skin on the upper arms due to aging, genetics, or weight loss, an upper arm lift can help return your arms to their former shape. Reducing or eliminating the excess skin from your upper arms can improve upper body mobility and help you feel confident once more in your appearance. Upper arm lifts may be combined with liposuction to enhance results, and many patients choose to combine upper arm lifts with a tummy tuck for a dramatic difference.
