Look Your Best Below the Waist

Patient Reviews

Below the Waist

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, our muscle tone may diminish and fluctuations in weight can affect our appearance in many ways. We may be unable to achieve the appearance we desire through diet and exercise alone. There are many options available to reshape and enhance our bodies below the waist.

Thigh Reshaping

Southern Surgical Arts offers thigh reshaping for patients who have loose skin in their thighs or may otherwise wish to enhance their appearance. Depending on the patient’s circumstances, the procedure may involve removing excessive loose skin, tightening the remaining skin, and/or removing excess fat with liposuction. Take a look at our before and after galleryto explore how they can help you achieve similar results.

Cellulite Reduction

There is a new breakthrough cellulite treatment available to you through Southern Surgical Arts. This development is very exciting because it does not focus on treating the appearance of surface skin, but rather penetrates much deeper to change the composition of the fibrous bands that create cellulite dimples. The treatment is quick and painless and the results continue to improve as time goes on. Take a look at our before and after gallery to explore how they can help you achieve similar results.

Brazilian Butt Lift

For patients who wish to enhance the shape and fullness of their buttocks, a Brazilian Butt Lift offers long-lasting results that are safe and effective. The procedure begins by harvesting fat from other areas on the patient’s body through liposuction. Then the cosmetic surgeons at Southern Surgical Arts insert the harvested fat into the buttock area to create the desired shape. Take a look at our before and after gallery to explore how they can help you achieve similar results.

Labiaplasty and Vaginal Restoration

After giving birth, a woman may find that she wishes to improve the appearance of her privates. Her labial tissue may have become misshapen or discolored. The Labiaplasty procedure can remove excess labia tissue and restore a youthful appearance to the vagina. Laser Vaginal Restoration is a non-invasive technique to improve vaginal tone and lubrication which may improve intercourse and also reduce urinary incontinence. Southern Surgical Arts is one of the few cosmetic surgery practices in the area that offer these types of enhancements. Take a look at our before and after gallery to explore how they can help you achieve similar results.

Varicose and Spider Veins

Aging and certain medical conditions can cause the veins in your face, legs, hands, and feet to display a spidery or bulging appearance. Non-invasive treatments are available to reroute the blood flow to deeper veins below the skin and reduce the spidery vein or bulging vein appearance on the skin. Deeper medical issues causing leg pain, cramps, leg restlessness, leg swelling, varicose veins, or changes in skin pigmentation can be addressed at our Vein Institute.

EMSELLA® Urinary Incontinence Treatment

The EMSELLA device treats involuntary incontinence caused by weakened or lost pelvic floor muscle functions due to aging or bodily changes. EMSELLA’s High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) pulses facilitate pelvic floor muscle and tissue contraction equivalent to 11,000 Kegel exercises. This non-surgical, non-invasive, painless stimulation of deep pelvic floor muscles restores neuromuscular control and function to help prevent urinary incontinence. Patients are fully clothed during twice-weekly ½ hour sessions over a three-week treatment period.
