Diet and exercise can do wonders for your body, but they can’t always do everything necessary to make your body look the way you want. If you have problem areas that refuse to let go of fat, Dr. Arnold Breitbart has a variety of procedures that can help you to look healthier and toned.
Liposuction is the tried-and-true method for taking on persistent fat that you cannot manage to diet and exercise away. The surgery uses a suction technique to remove unwanted fat deposits, while simultaneously contouring to achieve a more appealing shape for the stomach, back, thighs, buttocks, arms, ankles, chin or whatever body part is being treated.
Smartlipo Triplex is an advancement in liposuction technology that uses laser heat to attack fat cells. It is more suited to patients with less fat on their body than those who turn to regular liposuction. As it is a less-invasive procedure, there is also less recovery time with Smartlipo Triplex than with traditional liposuction.
Tummy tuck surgery is a great way to remove excess skin or pooch fat around your abdominal muscles. To remove that undesirable flab, Dr. Breitbart makes his incision low enough that it can be hidden with underwear. That way, you will actually be able to show off a flatter, more toned stomach without any humiliation from a scar.
Motherhood is a blessing, but following pregnancy, your body can change substantially. That’s why women who want their stomach, breasts and hips to look more like they did before having children seek out a combination of procedures to feel like their younger selves.
You’ve done the hard part: you’ve lost the weight! Still, your body might not look the way you dreamed it would because of the excess skin that remains or a few stubbornly flabby areas. Dr. Breitbart offers several different contouring procedures to help your body shape reflect the new weight you have achieved.
To specifically target the skin that hangs beneath your upper arms, you may consider arm lift surgery to regain confidence in wearing short sleeve shirts. In most cases, Dr. Breitbart will make an incision starting at the armpit to liposuction out some fat and remove the skin flaps, yielding a more toned appearance in your arms.
Although it is common for fat and saggy skin to accumulate around the thighs, that doesn’t mean you have to like it. With thigh lift surgery, Dr. Breitbart can remove unwanted fat and skin from your inner and/or outer thighs, contouring them into firmer thighs that are more proportional to the rest of your body.
If you wish your rear end were bigger, buttock augmentation is your best bet. While some doctors offer implants, Dr. Breitbart knows he can achieve better, safer results with fat transfers (taking excess fat from another part of the body and putting it into the buttock.) The result is a fuller, more natural-feeling butt than the alternatives offered at other practices.
Cellulaze is a brilliant advancement in cellulite treatment. While previous alternatives made superficial improvements to your cellulite, Cellulaze uses a laser to destroy cellulite from beneath the skin. Not only are the process and recovery time reasonably quick, but the results last much longer than other skin treatments on the market. To discuss what any of these procedures can do for your body, call (516) 365-3511 for a consultation with Dr. Breitbart.
