Body-shaping procedures designed to permanently reduce loose, sagging skin and unwanted fat deposits can help you achieve a trimmer, firmer physical appearance; boosting your confidence and increasing your clothing options. If you’re healthy but just can’t get rid of stubborn body fat or stretched, excess skin from pregnancy or major weight loss, schedule a consultation with a board-certified Chicago plastic surgeon(s) at The Women’s Institute to see which body procedure can help you achieve your appearance goals.
Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck is a popular procedure among moms, as well as men and women who have lost significant weight from their stomach region. During the surgery, tummy tuck patients have loose abdominal tissues tightened and sagging skin removed to reveal a flatter, more toned tummy.
We all have them — problem areas where fat seems to collect no matter how much we exercise or stick to a healthy diet. Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that targets and permanently reduces stubborn fat deposits from almost anywhere on the body. Visit the Chicagoland plastic surgery offices of The Women’s Institute to learn more about how liposuction can help you get rid of extra fat and achieve a sleeker physique.
Each body contouring patient has unique cosmetic goals, and a female surgeon will customize the combination of techniques used to help each of our patients achieve their optimal look. It’s not uncommon for body contouring to include liposuction, excess skin removal and possibly breast surgery procedures in order to accomplish head-to-toe body shape improvements.
Like body contouring, a mommy makeover involves a combination of surgical body-shaping procedures, but they’re designed just for moms. Many Chicagoland patients rely on The Women’s Institute for a mommy makeover once they’ve finished having kids in hopes of regaining their pre-pregnancy figure. Mommy Makeover procedures may include a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast augmentation and/or breast lift.
Labiaplasty is the reduction of the labia majora and/or minora. This surgical procedure reduces the elongated labia in order to diminish discomfort in the treated area. It is a surgery that can improve a woman’s body after an injury or childbirth has changed her appearance. In addition, labiaplasty can be performed on patients who wish to alleviate irritation, pain, hygiene issues, self-consciousness, or sexual dysfunction due to an enlarged labia.
