Liposuction or Tummy Tuck?

Body Countouring in Philadelphia, PA

Has the tautness of your skin’s elasticity been weakened by significant weight loss, surgery or pregnancy? Is loose, flabby skin making you feel uncomfortable? If so, it’s time to consider either a tummy tuck or liposuction from Pollard Plastic Surgery.

If you’re ready to eliminate that extra skin and fat around your midsection, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Emily Pollard is an award-winning, board-certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon. She and her professionally-trained staff are here to educate you with strategic solutions that are perfect for your body.

Liposuction or Tummy Tuck? Which surgery is best for me?

Both liposuction and tummy tucks offer solutions for anyone who has a small amount of fat that has become difficult to eliminate. If your muscle tone is great, and you’re active and eat a well-balanced, healthful diet, liposuction is the perfect remedy in Dr. Pollard’s professional opinion. However, if you have loose skin that won’t tighten up, a tummy tuck is the procedure she will recommend.

Vaser® Lipo

Perhaps you have lost weight the old-fashioned way, through improved diet and exercise, yet you simply cannot eliminate those last few inches of fat – no matter how you target it. If you are looking to lose a couple of inches and firm up, liposuction via Vaser® Lipo will work beautifully for you.
The Vaser® Lipo system uses minimally invasive ultrasound technology for precision body contouring. It can be used to eliminate fat from many areas of the body, from love handles to thighs. Vaser® Lipo produces eye-catching results in just one procedure and the technology provides many benefits versus traditional liposuction treatments. Using precision contouring, Vaser® Lipo can help you to finally achieve that look you’ve always wanted.

Tummy Tuck

If you have persevered through countless crunches and other fat-burning exercises while ensuring your diet is healthy, and still cannot obtain a firm, toned tummy, Dr. Pollard recommends the tummy tuck.

A tummy tuck is a surgery that eliminates not only additional fat but also skin that has lost its elasticity, allowing separated, weak muscles to replenish. The surgical term for this option is abdominoplasty. Once you have healed from your tummy tuck, your tummy will have a firm, smooth appearance.

The Skinny on Body Contouring

Body Countouring in Philadelphia, PABody 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.

Getting Your Body Ready For Summer

Body Countouring in Philadelphia, PAMany 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.
