Tummy tuck surgeries are among the most common body cosmetic surgeries performed by Dr. Tyrone. A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a procedure designed to improve the abdomen after weight loss when excess skin and fat are left over. The surgery consists of three basic components: incisions are made in the lower abdomen and towards the sides below the hip bones to remove excess skin, the separation of the abdomen is repaired to tighten the waistline, and excess fat is removed. An Ocala tummy tuck performed by Dr. Tyrone can help you achieve a flatter, tighter abdomen if your skin doesn’t adjust to your new body after weight loss.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgery designed to rid the body of excess fat that has accumulated in certain areas to provide slimmer, more contoured results. Often, fat deposits collect in areas of the body despite a reliable exercise program and proper dieting. In these instances, an Ocala liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Tyrone can address the issue and leave you with the body you have been working hard to achieve. Liposuction procedures have evolved to remove excess fat from almost anywhere in the body. While liposuction can be done as an isolated procedure, depending on the amount of fat removed it can be paired with a lift surgery to address possible sagging skin.
For patients who have a slighter amount of sagging skin and fat, mainly in the lower abdomen, a mini tummy tuck is the ideal choice. A mini tummy tuck is a variation on the traditional tummy tuck with the same final objective — to restore the skin in the abdomen to a firmer position and to remove any lingering excess fat. However, a mini tummy tuck specifically focuses on just the lower abdomen, and since it is a more compact region than a traditional tummy tuck, the size of the incisions and scarring are smaller. A mini tummy tuck in Ocala, FL, can be a more suitable option if you feel that your abdomen doesn’t require a full tummy tuck; during a consultation with Dr. Tyrone, he will be able to determine the best procedure for you.
Childbearing leads to many changes in a woman’s body; changes that don’t always revert back to normal. While fat gained from pregnancy usually goes away, the skin and breasts don’t always regain their previous shape. As skin stretches during pregnancy, it tends to lose it’s elasticity and is unable to conform back to the slimmer body once the weight is gone. Instead, it leads to sagging skin and sagging breasts. If you have experienced these effects after pregnancy, Dr. Tyrone can help you get your pre-pregnancy body back. The Mommy Makeover is a combination of surgical procedures designed to restore the youthful appearance of a woman’s body after pregnancy. The procedures needed will differ depending on the individual patient’s needs, but most commonly consist of breast augmentation, breast lifts, liposuction, and tummy tucks.
Body sculpting, or a body lift, is a combination of various cosmetic surgeries to address the entire body. The procedure is used to tone the buttocks, thighs, upper arms, and waistline by removing excess skin and fat, stretching skin to better wrap the new, slimmer areas of the body, and to mold the remaining fat and tissues into the desired contours of the body. Body lifts are especially effective after dramatic weight loss or after pregnancy when the skin loses its elasticity and is unable to conform to the new body, or with age when the same effect occurs. Body sculpting by Dr. Tyrone can leave you with a firm, smooth body you can feel confident in.
