Are women the same the same size as the women of the 60s? The answer is no. Studies show our lifestyles are different. We exercise less and we live in a super-sized society at every drive through. Yet television and other social factors show small waists and ultra-thin features on our young women that are unrealistic and unattainable in a healthy lifestyle. This creates a demand for cosmetic surgery to seek a figure that the media elevates as beautiful.
At Southern Surgical Arts, we perform procedures that help women achieve their desired results while considering what is healthy and realistic for their age and body-type. Liposuction is on the rise because of such shows as Mad Men but it is not a weight loss procedure. “Our practice performs liposuction to the abdominal and flank areas for a more hourglass figure,” said Dr. Chad Deal. “We can also perform a Tummy Tuck with Liposuction to achieve a patient’s needs if the patient is a candidate.” Dr. Deal said that he occasionally recommends against surgery when the patient has unrealistic expectations or when the surgery is not indicated.
Mommy Makeovers are also more popular at our practice. “After child birth, women want to look the way they did before their children were born,” said Dr. Carey Nease. Mommy Makeovers often include breast augmentation or lift, tummy tuck and liposuction. The makeover is custom for each Mom and can also include procedures such as vaginal rejuvenation. Dr. Nease said the goal of a Mommy Makeover is the restoration of a Mom’s body with some enhancements, and to make a woman more confident in her appearance.
Mad Men and television may show us the most beautiful people on earth but Southern Surgical Arts wants to help you achieve results that enhance your own natural beauty. We invite you to visit our extensive Before and After Gallery to see the results our surgeons achieve.
