As a major component of body contouring surgery, Dr. Collins removes the excess skin and troublesome fat deposits that may still linger around your lower body after a major loss of weight. Using skin and tissue tightening techniques, she is able to further slenderize your silhouette and improve the fit of clothing.
Even with adherence to diet and exercise, many of us still struggle with stubborn areas of fat on our body that can only be eradicated through surgical intervention. Under the careful hands of Dr. Collins, you can have those fat deposits removed via liposuction, a technique that loosens the fat and removes it through a small tube called a cannula.
Sometimes men develop excess breast tissue or troublesome fat deposits on their chest which give the appearance of a female-looking breast. Using skin and tissue tightening techniques combined with liposuction, Dr. Collins can remove those tissues giving you a smaller, more masculine chest, also improving the fit of clothing.
Oftentimes after weight loss or pregnancy, the stomach does not easily return to its more toned state, despite diet and exercise efforts. For men and women who experience this struggle, Dr. Collins performs tummy tuck surgery which tightens both the skin and the muscle of your abdominal area, providing you the more slender physique you’ve worked toward.
After weight loss, excess skin may not have the elasticity it once did and can “pool” around certain areas of the body, like the thighs. For these individuals, Dr. Collins performs thigh lift surgery, which removes the excess skin and may also incorporate liposuction techniques to further slim the lower body.
Tumescent technique liposuction is similar to traditional liposuction in that stubborn fat deposits are removed through a small tube called a cannula. In this technique, however, Dr. Collins employs a solution that both numbs the area, acting as an anesthetic and also makes removal of the fat easier. This may slightly decrease recovery time.
Dr. Collins performs a variety of body contouring procedures that can help you further along the road to a more slim physique following major weight loss. Whether diet and exercise or bariatric surgery helped you lose weight, you may struggle with excess skin and fat deposits in areas like the thighs, upper arms, or midsection and can turn to Dr. Collins to help you realize your body’s potential after weight loss.
