At Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine in Sydney we can help sculpt the problem areas on your body that make you feel uncomfortable at the beach and prevent you from wearing slim fit clothes. Body contouring isn’t about helping people lose weight (although our patients often do) it’s about helping people sculpt the problem areas. In fact we encourage our patients to maintain a healthy, fit lifestyle before seeing us for treatment. We often see patients seeking our treatment with healthy bodies but with problem areas. These problem areas can affect our patients’ confidence, appearance and overall wellbeing.
To help make you feel more comfortable in your own skin we offer body sculpting treatments that target your areas of concern and work to help you achieve your ideal body. When you visit our Sydney cosmetic centre for your initial consultation, we will discuss your goals and the most effective treatment for you. We will also ensure you understand what is required for aftercare and what can be expected during your treatment. Our goal is to ensure you understand every aspect of your procedure while providing you with quality care and expertise.
Abdominoplasty, more commonly referred to as a ‘tummy tuck’ could be the solution to achieving the firm abs you desire. A tummy tuck can also be used to tighten loose skin and muscles around the abdomen as a result of pregnancy or major weight loss.
Your tummy tuck surgery will generally involve the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen while also tightening the muscle and fascia (layer of fibrous tissue) of the abdominal wall. A full abdominoplasty treatment generally takes between 1-5 hours and for a mini-tuck your treatment can be done between 1-2 hours.
Interesting fact: Did you know that as our weight changes, our fat cells do not increase or decrease in number? That means that, our bodies develop numerous fat cells and when we gain weight, those fat cells enlarge in size but don’t actually change in number – and vice versa when we lose weight. For those patients who are unsatisfied with the way their fat cells are distributed, liposuction may be a great solution.
As we age our bodies change and so does our metabolism, which can cause weight to appear in new areas. At our Sydney cosmetic centre we can help redistribute your fat cells by removing them from one part of your body and reinjecting them in another. We commonly see patients opting for fat transfer to help fill lines and wrinkles on their face. This treatment is popular because patients can rest assured knowing their own body’s fat is being re-distributed rather than using synthetic materials.
If you’re not feeling confident about your body we encourage you to consider what you can do about it. If after healthy eating and exercise you still find yourself struggling with problem areas then consider your body contouring opportunities. At Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine our goal is to provide our patients with the body they desire.
