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. Also known as abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck 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.
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.
A Mommy Makeover is typically when a breast procedure is combined with an abdominal procedure. Breast procedure options include augmentation with implants, lifts, and breast reductions. The most common abdominal procedures are usually either liposuction or a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty).
Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. The result is a smooth look that gives patients the confidence to wear a bathing suit.
If you have had a disappointing outcome with another plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephanie Teotia will help you by addressing your concerns and working to create viable and safe surgical solutions based on your particular needs.
Arm | Thigh | Back Lift
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. 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. 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. 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.
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.
Though cellulite is notoriously challenging to treat, Avéli is a quick, FDA-cleared in-office solution. Dr. Teotia performs this minimally invasive procedure using a small handheld device that releases the bands that cause cellulite to appear as bumps and dimples on the buttocks and thighs. Usually, only a single session is necessary to produce long-lasting results.
