Great Legs for Summer

Did you know there are several ways to have great legs in time for summer? It’s true. Here are several options we offer to help you have those sexy legs you want but weren’t sure how to get:

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges including inner and outer thighs, as well as underneath the buttocks (also knowns as banana roll). It’s a nonsurgical procedure that permanently kills fat cells without the need for surgery or downtime. It provides long-term results that make trouble spots a lot less troubling. 

Why Choose CoolSculpting: If you have good skin tone, it’s a non-invasive procedure that produces great results. It is not a good choice if you have loose or sagging skin. 

Profound

Hate cellulite? Who doesn’t?! Fortunately, we now have Profound —an effective nonsurgical treatment for dealing with it. This procedure is minimally invasive and uses a fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling device to reduce cellulite and promote the body’s natural production of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid. It tightens and smooths the skin, reducing the signs of cellulite.

Why Choose Profound: It’s an excellent way to reduce cellulite, making the skin appear flatter and smoother.

BodyTite/Accutite

BodyTite is radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL). This minimally invasive technology tightens skin, eliminates fat, and triggers higher levels of natural collagen production without scalpels, incisions, stitches, or scars. It’s great for thinning and contouring those thighs and knees. And for precision work in small areas, AccuTite is perfect for stimulating the production of collagen, contouring the skin, and reducing unwanted fat in the targeted areas. 

Why Choose BodyTite/Accutite: It provides a unique minimally invasive ability to tighten and tone saggy skin caused by weight loss or due to aging. It’s a great way to address moderate amounts of excess skin or fat.

Liposuction

Liposuction, also known as liposculpture or just Lipo, is a powerful way to remove all excess fat in one surgical session, greatly improving the contour of your thighs. It involves removal of local fat deposits beneath the skin through small incisions with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Liposuction of the inner and outer thigh, buttocks and around the knees can improve the appearance of “thick” legs. Liposuction is invasive surgery and is not a substitute for weight reduction.

Why Choose Lipo: It’s ideal for patients who want to slim and reshape their legs by removing excess fat deposits and improving their contours and proportion, and have time to recuperate from this surgical procedure. We can combine lipo with BodyTite for patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift improves the appearance of heavy or sagging thighs by reducing excess skin and fat. It smooths and tightens the skin, and makes your thighs better proportioned to the rest of your body. The location of the incision patterns varies based on the area or areas to be treated and degree of correction. Techniques include having an inner thigh lift, outer thigh lift, or even a minimal incision thigh lift. Advanced surgical techniques usually allow me to place the incisions in strategic locations where they can be hidden by most types of clothing and swimsuits. However, do keep in mind that incisions may be extensive.

Why Choose a Thigh Lift: It may be the right solution for patients who have significant excess skin in the thigh area and related poor thigh contour.
