Like other parts of the world, surgical body contouring in Western Australia is very popular. There are numerous surgical procedures offered by surgeons such as Dr Mark Hanikeri in WA to shape your body; some of the most important ones are listed below.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
The abdomen (or tummy area) is one of the first body parts that starts bulging well before the other parts start drooping. To shape the abdomen a procedure known as abdominoplasty is performed. An abdominoplasty involves excess tissues of the abdomen being removed to achieve a more toned shape. More importantly, if there is loose muscle underneath the skin, this is tightened to give a firmer, smaller waist. It is an anesthetic based procedure that is carried out under the supervision of a highly qualified surgeon.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Along with many other procedures, the lifting and tightening of sagging arms (aka Brachioplasty) is becoming very popular nowadays. In this procedure, the excessive fat and skin tissues in the upper arm are removed. This procedure involves the patient staying overnight at the hospital.
Body Lift (Belt Lipectomy)
Another very useful and popular plastic surgery to contour your body is belt lipectomy or body lift. In this procedure, the excessive fat and skin tissues from the back, outer thighs, flanks and buttocks are removed through an anesthetic surgery. This procedure can take up to 4 to 5 hours. In this procedure, the patient stays on average about 3 to 5 days in hospital. Compression garments will be required for up to four weeks after the surgery.
Breast lift is a very popular procedure in women all over the world. In this procedure, the breast is shaped by lifting the residual breast and removing the excessive loose skin tissues. The nipple and areola are lifted. In this procedure, the patient is supposed to stay in the hospital for one night because in many cases, drains are inserted, which are removed the next day.
