Ayala Plastic Surgery offers many state-of-the-art body contouring options to help you reach your ideal physique. Dr. John Ayala performs plastic surgery for the body to treat concerns that are unresponsive to dieting and exercise, such as redundant skin, weakened abdominal musculature, stubborn fat pockets, and much more.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck can be a comprehensive body contouring treatment to achieve a slimmer waistline and minimize a hanging or protruding abdomen. Not only can it eliminate excess skin and fat for a tighter, smoother midsection, but abdominoplasty is also designed to bring together loose or separated musculature. This can result in a firmer and flatter abdomen as well as an improved abdominal contour. As the procedure is designed to treat loose skin and stretched abdominal muscles, a tummy tuck is a popular treatment choice among patients who have undergone massive weight loss or pregnancy.
Mini Tummy Tuck
If you only struggle with a mild amount of excess skin and fat in the abdomen, a mini tummy tuck may be enough to achieve your aesthetic goals. Suitable for patients with minimal excess skin, a mini tummy tuck can still tighten the muscles on the abdominal wall but the procedure is considered a less extensive version of a full abdominoplasty. As a result, a mini tummy tuck can typically be performed using a smaller incision.
Due to the physical tolls of pregnancy and nursing, many women who have undergone childbirth struggle with aesthetic concerns such as stretched abdominal muscles, deflated breast volume, and skin laxity that cause the breasts to lose shape and sag. A mommy makeover is a comprehensive treatment plan that is customized for your unique needs with the goal of restoring your pre-pregnancy figure. This series of treatments is designed to address the regions most affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding, with procedures typically including a tummy tuck, breast lift with or without implants, liposuction, and more.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the country, offering a relatively simple and highly effective method of selective fat reduction. Despite regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle, many individuals struggle with isolated fat pockets that are resistant to toning efforts. Using a narrow tube called a cannula, liposuction is designed to suction out excess fat from targeted regions of the body. This can provide an improved contour to the treated area(s) and smooth fat bulges like “love handles” and “bra rolls.”
If excess skin and fatty tissue in the upper arms are causing a loose or hanging appearance, an arm lift may be the perfect solution to achieve a more toned and defined aesthetic. This procedure is designed to remove lax skin and fat deposits to tighten the upper arms, providing a firmer, fitter, and more youthful look.
A buttock lift is a procedure that can improve the shape and projection of the backside by adding volume via fat transfer. Using your own fatty tissue from another part of the body, buttock augmentation can minimize sagging or generally provide a rounder and firmer appearance. Because the procedure uses your own tissue, there is usually no risk of an allergic reaction.
Enlarged or stretched labial tissue can cause a range of uncomfortable symptoms, including painful twisting and tugging as well as self-consciousness when the labia is visible through clothing. Labiaplasty is designed to reduce the discomfort of elongated or asymmetrical tissue by trimming and recontouring the labia minora. Depending on your goals for treatment, labiaplasty can provide vaginal rejuvenation to resolve both cosmetic and functional concerns.
Whether they originated as a result of injury, previous surgery, a birth defect, or disease, the appearance of deep or large scars can be an aesthetic concern for many patients. Fortunately, a scar revision procedure can improve the size, shape, and texture of a scar to minimize its visibility and help you feel confident in your own skin. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayala is well-equipped to cosmetically enhance simple to complex scarring.
