Are you fighting the post-holiday bulge? At Bellava we offer the best surgical and nonsurgical fat removal/body sculpting options to help you obtain your ultimate body.
(Full Abdominoplasty versus Mini Abdominoplasty)
A full tummy tuck is ideal for patients who were formerly very overweight, or, for women whose abdominal skin has been stretched out and/or muscle has been weakened or separated during pregnancy.
Performed under general anesthesia by our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. C.S. Kim, the tummy tuck involves removing extra abdominal fat and skin, and also tightening muscles in your abdominal wall. Although the procedure will likely leave a permanent scar between the hips, it will be low enough for even a bikini to conceal it.
In patients where the abdominal wall does not protrude that significantly and fat deposits exist only in the lower region below the belly button, a mini tummy tuck can be performed under general or local anesthesia. Through a single, short incision at or above the pubic area that stretches a few inches across the lower abdomen, Dr. Kim removes excess skin, and often uses a fat-removal procedure such as laser liposuction to further contour the area. The mini tummy tuck results in a scar above the pubic bone that is typically shorter/smaller than a scar from a full tummy tuck.
If you have a tummy that requires fat removal with minimal skin tightening laser lipo may be right for you! Laser liposuction is a nonsurgical procedure that permanently removes unwanted fat and sculpts the body. It is affordable, safe, performed under local anesthesia and offers quick recovery time (1-3 days). Other common areas treated with laser liposuction include the back, buttocks, chin, neck, love handles, thighs and upper arms. At Bellava Dr. Kim is a leading expert in laser body sculpting, renowned for both his artistic vision and medical expertise.
CoolSculpting is a great nonsurgical procedure to get rid of fat in the tummy area since there’s no anesthesia, no scarring and no downtime. Nonsurgical CoolSculpting, performed by one of our expert medical aestheticians, kills fat cells below the skin through a special “freezing” mechanism without damaging your healthy skin. In the weeks and months following treatment, the targeted fat cells are naturally eliminated from your body. Because treatment is targeted, it is an effective way to help reduce areas that resist diet and exercise. Other popular treatment areas include love handles, flanks, inner and outer thighs, bra fold and now even the neck!
