Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. Changes in weight, aging and even heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance.
Exercise may strengthen and improve the underlying muscle tone of the upper arm, but it cannot address excess skin that has lost elasticity or underlying weakened tissues and localized fat deposits.

If the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat, an arm lift may be right for you.

An arm lift:

  • Reduces excess skin and fat between the underarm and the elbow
  • Reshapes your arm to result in smoother skin and contours
  • Results in a more toned and proportionate appearance

Liposuction

Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have a body with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits.  These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.  Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion, and ultimately, enhancing your self-image.

Liposuction techniques may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheek, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

In some cases, liposuction is performed alone, in other cases it is used with plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, breast reduction or a tummy tuck.


Mommy Makeover 

Having children can be such a wonderful experience for women. However, no one really talks about the physical toll it can take on a mother’s body. The result can be sagging breasts, excess skin or fat around the abdomen or an accumulation of fat around the hips and thighs which cannot be fixed with diet and exercise alone.

It is possible to "turn back the clock" with cosmetic surgery. Consider the “Mommy Makeover”.

“All mothers know the toll that childbirth can take on our bodies. Sometimes diet and exercise are not enough. Many mothers find that cosmetic surgery can get them back their pre-pregnancy body or perhaps even better. These women typically don’t want to look like a supermodel; they just want to return to their previous shape.”

Sometimes, breast feeding can cause sagging and asymmetry of the breasts. Some women consider saline or silicone breast implants to remedy the loss of fullness and restore lift.

New mothers may notice that their lower abdomen is fuller than it used to be. Once mothers are done having children, a tummy tuck may be the best solution. This procedure removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

Giving birth can cause an accumulation of excess fat around the hips or inner and outer thighs. Liposuction can achieve the reshaping of unsightly bulges into smoother curves.

After all of the challenges motherhood can pose, cosmetic surgery is just the reward many women deserve. It is best to seek out a board certified surgeon like Dr. Marble and arrange for a confidential consultation.

Scar Revision

Scar revision is plastic surgery performed to improve the condition or appearance of a scar anywhere on your body. The type of scar you have will determine the appropriate techniques your plastic surgeon will use to improve your scar.

The different types of scars include:

  • Discoloration, surface irregularities and other more subtle scars can be cosmetically improved by surgery or other treatments recommended by your plastic surgeon. These types of scars do not impair function or cause physical discomfort and include acne scars as well as scars resulting from minor injury and prior surgical incisions.
  • Hypertropic scars are thick clusters of scar tissue that develop directly at a wound site. They are often raised, red and/or uncomfortable, and they may become wider over time. They can be hyperpigmented (darker in color) or hypopigmented (lighter in color).
  • Keloids are larger than hypertropic scars. They can be painful or itchy, and may also pucker. They extend beyond the edges of an original wound or incision. Keloids can occur anywhere on your body, but they develop more commonly where there is little underlying fatty tissue, such as on the face, neck, ears, chest or shoulders.
  • Contractures are scars that restrict movement due to skin and underlying tissue that pull together during healing. They can occur when there is a large amount of tissue loss, such as after a burn. Contractures also can form where a wound crosses a joint, restricting movement of the fingers, elbows, knees or neck.

 Thigh Lift  

A thigh lift reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

If fitness and weight loss efforts have not achieved your goals for a body that is firmer, more youthful-looking and more proportionate to your overall body image, a surgical thigh lift may be right for you.

This surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body.

Candidates for thigh lift are:

  • People whose weight is relatively stable
  • Individuals with excess soft tissue along the inner or medial thigh region and/or the outer thigh
  • Healthy individuals who do not have medical conditions that can impair healing or increase risk of surgery
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals for what thigh lift surgery can accomplish
  • Individuals committed to leading a healthy lifestyle including proper nutrition and fitness

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control.  Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.  Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. 

The most common causes of this include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Significant fluctuations in weight Heredity
  • Prior surgery
