Southern Surgical Arts offers both body and breast cosmetic surgery options. We use the latest technologies to ensure you get exactly the results you desire. Whether you are looking to restore your figure after childbirth or desire a more youthful you, a consultation with Dr. Deal or Dr. Nease, board-certified cosmetic surgeons who have performed more than 10,000 cosmetic surgery procedures over the last 10 years. Our surgeons believe that cosmetic surgery is an art that requires the right planning, technology and vision to help patients reach their aesthetic goals.
Some of the cosmetic surgery procedures to help you get the results you desire include the following from Southern Surgical Arts:
Liposuction and Laser-assisted Liposuction
In the United States, liposuction and laser-assisted liposuction are the most common cosmetic surgical procedures. These procedures are used to remove excess, unwanted fat from specific parts of the body to contour the shape of the body.
Liposuction is used to treat areas, such as abdomen, flanks, neck, upper arms, thighs, back and knees. The procedure usually is performed on an outpatient basis and recovery time can vary from 1 to 7 days.
Laser-assisted liposuction at Southern Surgical Arts is done using SmartLipo technology, which combines the benefits of liposuction while providing extra skin tightening that liposuction cannot do alone. It is the latest technology in the field of cosmetic surgery. It is routinely used in Southern Surgical Arts’ body sculpting and is an FDA-approved cosmetic surgery technology.
If you are dissatisfied by the excess skin around your lower abdomen, you can opt for a tummy tuck procedure. Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure can help give you a flat stomach and narrow waistline. The surgeon removes excess fat and skin while tightening your abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck often is combined with SmartLipo body sculpting to give better, more shapely results.
Brazilian Butt Lift
Another body contouring procedure that you can opt for is the Brazilian butt lift. This is a two-in-one surgical procedure where fat is harvested from the flanks, back and abdominal region using liposculpture and then transferred to the buttocks. It is performed under general anesthesia and the recovery time usually is about 5 to 7 days.
If you have had a child, you may be aspiring to achieve your pre-pregnancy body. At Southern Surgical Arts, we can offer you a combination of procedures – tummy tuck, Smartlipo laser body sculpting and breast augmentation with lift – to help you achieve this. Pregnancy can cause the skin to become lax, result in stretch marks, weaken the abdominal wall and leave behind unwanted fat deposits. A Mommy Makeover can help you regain your pre-pregnancy figure with no obvious signs of surgery, and very importantly with Southern Surgical Arts’ advanced techniques, the scars can be hidden below a bikini bottom.
A labiaplasty is a straightforward outpatient surgery that reduces excess labial tissue for restoring natural contours, thus giving you a more youthful looking labia. In some cases there are aesthetic concerns that were present even without pregnancy, and these same techniques provide the same level of results and patient satisfaction. Labiaplasty can be done under a local anesthetic, and takes about an hour. The procedure is quite tolerable for most women, and there is little to no pain. The sutures simply dissolve, and a small amount of swelling may remain for a time, between a few weeks to several weeks. The scarring is almost non-existent in this area, and a woman can resume full activity, including sexual intercourse, about a month of recovery after the procedure.
If you are embarrassed to wear a bikini, shorts or mini skirt because your thighs have loose skin or tend to hang, you can give your thighs a more youthful appearance by consulting your surgeon for a thighplasty, also known as thigh or leg lift. The skin on the thighs can become loose and flabby after significant weight loss or even due to aging. The procedure involves removing the loose skin and often using liposuction to remove unwanted fat deposits. Thighplasty can be performed on inner or outer thigh region or both.
Additionally, new non-invasive techniques offer patient a way to reduce fat and tighten skin with no downtime. Exilis, a radio frequency technology at Southern Surgical Arts, delivers energy deep into the tissues to liquefy fat and stimulate collagen. In fact some of the leading investigational studies on the technology have been performed at Southern Surgical Arts.
Body Lift and Post-gastric Bypass Surgery
Due to significant weight loss or aging, your figure may get lost under sagging and unsightly loose skin. With the help of body lift you can regain that youthful appearance. A body lift can be done on the lower torso to remove excessive loose skin and fat deposits from the upper legs, abdomen, arms, back, buttocks, hips and waist. It can help restore the natural shape of your body, helping you feel more confident in the clothes you wear and in your overall appearance.
If you want to have fuller and more youthful breasts, a breast augmentation is a popular option at Southern Surgical Arts and has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of any procedure. At Southern Surgical Arts, our surgeons are extraordinarily experienced in this procedure. We offer every type of implant (approved by the FDA) and have an expert understanding of the chest anatomy that allows for precise placement of the implant and the ability to customize the results to patient desires. Our surgeons teach doctors around the world in the latest techniques for breast augmentation and lifting, as well as teach surgical dissection anatomy labs to large audiences. When patients are considering breast augmentation they should expect expert results.
If your breasts are sagging due to aging or pregnancy, you can restore their perky, youthful appearance with the help of a breast lift surgery. The result – fuller, natural looking breasts with minimal scarring. At Southern Surgical Arts, we offer Benelli Lifts and Lollipop Lifts. The type of breast lift is selected based on several factors that the surgeon will discuss in your consultation. For example, a Benelli Lift is used for mild to moderate sagging, while a Lollipop lift is usually recommended when you have moderate to significant sagging.
There are some women who have large breasts that are undesirable to the patient or that result in shoulder, back and neck pain. If you have this problem, you no longer have to suffer in silence related to your large breasts. Breast reduction surgery may be right for you. Southern Surgical Arts uses a unique approach that minimizes scarring and improves longevity of the lift. This is accomplished by advanced breast lifting techniques, breast liposuction, and in some cases adding an implant.
Solutions for the Male Chest
There are many concerns a male might have about their chest such as massive weight loss, development of a small breast bud under the areola, or development of a male breast. The advanced procedures offered at Southern Surgical Arts can help men with each of these problems while minimizing scars and providing lasting results. Men also have the option of defining the chest with pectoral augmentations. Each patient is unique and the recommendation that our surgeons provide are custom tailored to your needs.
