Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – Full/Mini

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. A tummy tuck is not a substitute for weight loss, but it can help you achieve the body you want when paired with an appropriate diet an exercise program.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance, and unfortunately, this is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise. Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reduces excess sagging skin drooping downwards, tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region.

Buttock Augmentation (Fat Transfer)

Buttock augmentation surgery involves fat transfer to increase the size of your buttocks. Whether you want to change or enhance the shape of your buttock or simply balance the shape of your body, a buttock augmentation may be the right option for you.

Liposuction

The most frequently performed cosmetic procedure worldwide, liposuction helps you remove excess fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion. This technique can be applied to many areas of the body including thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, flanks, upper arms, back, and chin. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)

If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical lift may be right for you. Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

Scar Revision

Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location. Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture. Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include simple topical treatments, minimally invasive procedures, or surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure.

Skin Cancer Removal

A cancer diagnosis is very difficult to accept. Understanding that treating your skin cancer may result in scars or disfigurement can also be troubling. Dr. Teotia understands your concerns and will guide you through treatment and explain the resulting effect on your health and appearance. Skin cancer, much like any form of cancer, may require surgery to remove cancerous growths. Dr. Teotia can surgically remove cancerous and other skin lesions using specialized techniques to preserve your health and your appearance. Dr. Teotia will make every effort to treat your skin cancer without dramatically changing your appearance.

Braline Back Lift

A bra-line back lift is a type of plastic surgery treatment intended to correct sagging back fat rolls affecting the upper back, under your bra line. Back fat is common with aging, though it can be caused by other factors such as weight fluctuation and sun exposure. If you have been struggling to get rid of excess fat in this area, a braline back lift might be the right surgery for you. During your consultation, Dr. Teotia will discuss the procedure in detail and plan your individualized surgery with your specific goals in mind.

Labioplasty (Vaginal Rejuvenation)

Time, pregnancies and weight loss take a toll on the appearance of the vaginal region. Most commonly, the labia minor (the inner lip of the vulva) tissue becomes redundant. This excess tissue can be removed using local anesthesia in the clinic setting. The labia majora can also develop a deflated and saggy appearance. Fat grafting, soft tissue fillers and removal of excess skin are all strategies to approve the appearance of the labia majora.
