As the world marks the passage of another year, so, too, has your body — and the changes may be most unwelcome. If you’d like to take back your body this year, we can help with our body contouring procedures.

Here at The Aesthetic Surgery Center, Elliott H. Rose, MD, is an internationally regarded, board-certified plastic surgeon who offers a comprehensive suite of body contouring procedures. Using the latest techniques, Dr. Rose and his team help patients in New York City greet the future without the baggage from the past.

From liposuction to breast augmentation, explore how you can take back your body with our contouring procedures.

A look back

Whether you’re a man or woman, your body undergoes a significant amount of change as you journey through life. To start, as your hormones ebb and flow — especially for women who’ve gone through pregnancy or menopause — your body responds accordingly, and often that means carrying extra fat in areas where you least want it.

Your metabolism is under the same influences — age and hormones — which slows it down, making it easier to gain weight and, frustratingly, harder to lose it.

And the final insult is the natural loss of collagen as you age, which means some of your fat succumbs to gravity as your skin is increasingly unable to hold everything in place.

All of these natural forces combine to transform your firmer, more youthful body, into a softer, lumpier version, which can be further magnified by unhealthy eating habits and a lack of exercise.

While there’s nothing we can do to turn back the clock or override your metabolic processes, we can bypass them with body contouring procedures.

The finishing touch

The first tool in our arsenal is liposuction, which is a great way to target stubborn pockets of fat that resist all of your diet and exercise efforts. If you’re carrying extra fat around your abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, knees, or upper arms, Dr. Rose uses minimally invasive techniques to break up and remove these problematic fat deposits.

Liposuction shouldn’t be considered a weight loss tool as you should be within 15-20% of your ideal weight. What it does is put the finishing touches on your efforts by eliminating the fat that’s holding on and near impossible to get rid of on your own.

Give it a lift

As we mentioned earlier, there are several forces at play in your body as you make your way through life, and this is certainly true for women who are left with sagging or drooping breasts.

Whether your breasts have fallen prey to multiple pregnancies or age, we can reposition your breasts and even augment them at the same time if you’ve lost volume.

A pronounced profile

While age may be the primary offender when it comes to the changing shape of your body, Mother Nature may have been a little stingy to start. If you’d like to boost your profile, we can use saline or silicone breast implants to give your body more shape. We use minimally invasive techniques wherever possible, which means that we minimize any scarring that may interfere with your new look.

A matter of excess

If you’ve recently lost considerable weight, you may be left with sagging skin around your abdomen that was stretched beyond its capabilities to bounce back. For these situations, we offer the abdominoplasty procedure, also called the tummy tuck. During a tummy tuck, we remove the excess skin as well as any lingering pockets of fat, repair your muscles, and pull your skin taut to give you a flatter abdomen.

 

No matter your body concerns, we can likely help with one of our body contouring procedures. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with The Aesthetic Surgery Center today.
