Body Contouring for the New Year

The new year represents a fresh start, which is why New Year’s Resolutions are so popular. Many people use this time to contemplate changes they’d like to make to their bodies. Usually, that means diet and exercise. While both are crucial for a healthy lifestyle, they aren’t the only tool available. For instance, what can be done about those stubborn problem areas? The ones that never seem to get better, no matter how many healthy choices you make? At the offices of Jim Brantner, MD, we offer several body contouring techniques to sculpt and shape specific areas:

  • Tummy and Sides. We offer SculpSure procedures to help with these stubborn areas. SculpSure is quick, non-invasive, and minimizes discomfort because it doesn’t involve surgery. Tummy tucks and liposuction are other popular options for contouring the area around the abdomen.
  • Arms. The upper arms have a tendency to sprout “wings” of excess fat and skin as the body ages. An arm lift, also called a brachioplasty, is designed to help correct this, to restore confidence and minimize discomfort from unwanted, flapping skin.

Remember, the only way to decide which procedures are best for you is to schedule a private, personalized consultation with Dr. Brantner. We’ll discuss your goals, expectations, concerns, costs, and even talk about any worries or fears you may have. Not only that, but we will give you honest feedback about whether your expectations and hopes are feasible. Dr. Brantner is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has been in civilian practice since 1987.

If you have questions, don’t delay! Call us today and let’s get find the right body contouring procedure to help you reach your goals.

You may not think of plastic surgery as being fashionable, but as with any in-demand services, there are definitely cycles in popularity.

  • Facial Procedures, especially eyelid lifts, face lifts, and nose reshaping. Given that we’re living longer and sharing more photos with people in our social (media) circles, is it any wonder people are taking more time to tend to their faces? Minor changes to the face can have a big impact on self-confidence.
  • Fat Transfer means exactly what it sounds like: taking your own fat from one area, such as the tummy or thighs, and using it to fill or plump another area, such as the breasts or face. Freezing, on the other hand, means that fat cells are frozen, killing them, and eliminated over the course of weeks or months. Either procedure can help to reshape parts of the body.
  • Bring on the Men! More men than ever are choosing to get plastic surgery. Over the last 15 years, the number of men seeking cosmetic procedures, including rhinoplasty and eyelid lifts, has increased by almost 50%.

Of course, just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it’s right for everyone. Only a consultation with Dr. Brantner can help determine what procedures are best for your goals.
