Body Contouring and Surgery Procedures
Tucks, Lifts, and Fat Reduction in Nashville
Maxwell Aesthetics is internationally regarded for its surgical outcomes, with plastic surgeons Dr. Jacob Unger and Dr. Amaka Nwubah offering a range of body contouring procedures for Nashville-area women and men seeking a slimmer silhouette and improved proportions. Body surgery options include surgical fat reduction, removal of excess skin, tightening of lax muscles, and more. Many of these strategies are ideal for patients who have lost a large amount of weight, which is important for health, but can leave sagging tissue behind.
As a pioneer in new body contouring techniques, Maxwell Aesthetics’ founder, Dr. Patrick Maxwell, based his practice on his commitment to helping patients achieve the shape they want through proven, up-to-date approaches. Dr. Unger and Dr. Amaka are equally committed to using the most modern techniques and technology so that patients can enjoy beautiful results with safety and long-term health in mind.
Common goals for body contouring at Maxwell Aesthetics include enhancing body contours after weight loss or pregnancy, correcting family traits that give the body an imbalanced appearance, revising the disappointing effects of another surgeon’s work, and achieving the confidence that comes with a slimmer, proportional shape.
Options available to patients include:
Also called a tummy tuck, this body contouring procedure flattens the upper and lower abdomen through careful tightening of overstretched muscles and precise removal of excess skin. The procedure may also involve the removal of stubborn pockets of fat cells, if necessary. Specifics depend on the patient.
Encompassing a full selection of the latest approaches, our physicians’ popular liposuction procedures effectively remove areas of diet-resistant fat from virtually any area of the body. While nonsurgical fat-reduction options are effective and gaining in popularity, surgical techniques offer more dramatic results that can be seen sooner—an appealing factor for many people deciding on their body contouring strategy.
While BodyTite is a nonsurgical treatment, it works in conjunction with lipo so that areas where fat has been removed do not continue to appear flabby due to skin laxity. The device uses heat to coagulate existing fat and to tighten skin tissue so that the area appears flatter, firmer, and smoother.
Encompassing a variety of approaches and options, body lift procedures help patients improve their shape dramatically by correcting many of the unwelcome effects of rapid or significant weight loss. As fat cells shrink due to diet or gastric surgery, the skin that had stretched out to accommodate the volume may not shrink along with them. With nothing pushing it out so that it appears tight, this skin can instead hang loose and baggy. Typically, this body contouring strategy addresses lax tissues on the hips, belly, back, buttocks, thighs, and sides.
A Brazilian butt lift augments flat or sagging buttocks to give them a rounder and fuller appearance, using fat cells taken from the belly, waist, or elsewhere via lipo. Some patients may find better results with silicone implants for added volume, and thus desire buttock augmentation with implants. Both techniques may be combined for an augmented, but still natural look.
On the upper body, the effects of rapid weight loss are commonly seen in the arms, where loose skin appears as a drape of tissue—frequently (and unflatteringly) referred to as “bat wings.” An arm lift is a focused body contouring procedure designed to address this problem.
Some people find that their upper legs are prone to developing a saggy, flabby look as skin loosens over time, with significant weight loss, and because of genetics. A thigh lift removes this excess skin, as well as contours the inner and outer thighs for a slimmer look.
While pregnancy can be a beautiful and wondrous experience, many women long for the body they had before they became a mom. Our plastic surgeons’ Mommy Makeover is not a single surgery, but a customized set of breast and body contouring procedures to restore your appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
