Body contouring is a great alternative when diet and exercise fail. Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to remove the unsightly bulges on your thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and other areas. Body contouring procedures at Pollard Plastic Surgery include surgical and minimally invasive procedures:
These surgeries can help you get the body you want. To maintain your new look, you’ll need to maintain a healthy lifestyle to enhance your results. Each procedure is not a way to lose weight, but a catalyst to kick start healthy results. Exercise not only burns calories, but boosts your metabolism – which is important because your body naturally slow downs your metabolism as you lose weight. A higher metabolism helps your body burn calories at a faster rate, even while you are resting.
To discuss body contouring procedures and how you can ensure your results last a lifetime, schedule a consultation with Dr. Pollard.
Many people dread bathing suit and shorts season – for good reason. If you are not happy with your body, it can be hard to show it off and feel comfortable in clothes suited for the summer heat.
To gain that confidence to enjoy a summer day at the beach, many patients explore tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast enhancements. A tummy tuck will tighten abdominal muscles and get rid of loose skin. It restores weakened or separated muscles, creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer. Liposuction sculpts the body and removes unwanted fat from areas such as the inner and outer thighs, waist, hips, back, knees, upper arms, chin/neck, and abdomen. And finally, for many women, a breast enhancement is the icing on the ‘cake’ of a great body. Breasts may either be lifted to a perkier position or augmented to restore lost volume.
If you want your new and improved body in time for summer, you need to remember that you’ll need one month for your body to heal and for the results to settle. You can discuss the option to have the surgeries simultaneously with Dr. Pollard. You shouldn’t rush the surgeries just to be “ready” for summer, of course, but with careful planning and Dr. Pollard’s expertise, you can be ready for summer.
Today more than ever it is obvious the importance we place on prominent facial features. A strong or a weak chin can influence judgment on the strength of one’s character, leadership and attractiveness, according to Business Week. So what can you do when the chin you were born with is less than indicative of the one you want to convey?
Fillers can temporarily produce similar results, but a chin implant is likely the most popular way for men and women to surgically balance out the features of the face. In fact, reshaping your chin via a surgical implant can not only improve your chin, but can also improve your jawline, make your neck more prominent and correct some facial asymmetry or deformities. And did we mention it can immeasurably improve your ability to FaceTime or take a decent Selfie?
Getting a chin implant is a surgical procedure meant to reshape the size of your chin by inserting an implant to enhance and rejuvenate the contours of your chin. An implant (silicone or polyethylene) will be used to improve the chin features.
Chin implant procedures are typically done under general anesthesia. A cut will be made on either the inside of the mouth or outside under the chin, creating a pocket in which to insert the implant in front of the chin bone and under the muscle. Once the implant is in place, it’s secured to the bone with sutures or screws, and then the opening is stitched up to heal.
Some of the pros are: “Hey! Check out my gorgeous chin!” a renewed sense of confidence, and facial symmetry. The procedure is also relatively quick to perform and offers nearpermanent results. Scarring is minimal and barely noticeable, and you should be able to resume your usual activities after 7 – 10 days.
Having a heart-to-heart with Dr. Pollard, she will help you decide whether a chin implant is right for you.
