About Jennifer Hein and Ann Marx DefyAge —

Liposuction
What is liposuction?
Liposuction (“lipoplasty”) is a body sculpting procedure that removes excess fat from selected regions of the body. The most common places where liposuction is performed are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks, and neck. This cosmetic surgery procedure is intended to remove excess fat that an individual is unable to get rid of with regular diet and exercise.

How is liposuction performed?
Liposuction may be performed in an office-based facility, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. Depending on the technique and the area(s) where you receive treatment, you can receive either local anesthesia, which only numbs the affected areas, or general anesthesia, which will put you completely to sleep. During traditional liposuction, the surgeon will make an incision in the selected area and insert a tube called a cannula; this pushes through the fat layers, breaks up the fat cells, and then suctions them out.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)Tummy Tuck / Abdominoplasty
What is abdominoplasty – Tummy Tuck?
A tummy tuck (“abdominoplasty”) is a surgical procedure where excess fat and skin are removed from the abdomen. This helps to tighten the muscles of the middle and lower abdomen.

How abdominoplasty is performed:
Before surgery, a licensed Chicago Plastic Surgeon will give you specific instructions to abide by in order to ensure a safe surgical process. For smokers, it is important that they plan to quit two weeks before surgery, and two weeks after.

A general anesthesia (you will be asleep during the procedure) or a local anesthesia (you will be numb in the area of operation), will be administered. Surgery can take anywhere from two to five hours depending on the severity of the operation. An incision will be made just above the pubic region from hipbone to hipbone. Another incision is made around the naval. The skin is then separated from the abdominal wall and pulled up above the ribs. The muscles are tightened and stitched close together, and the skin flap is then stretched down and excess skin is removed. A new hole will be cut for your navel. The incision is then closed with sutures.

In some cases, a mini tummy tuck (“partial abdominoplasty”) is performed on minor cases of excess skin and fat. The same steps are taken, except the skin is only separated between the incision line and the navel, with the surgeon focusing solely on your lower abdomen.

Body Contouring for Massive weight loss
Following weight reduction surgery, or just about any substantial volume of fat loss, your skin layer and flesh often lack elasticity and cannot conform to the reduced bodily proportions. As a result, skin that is severely stretched now could be unsupported:

  • Upper biceps may possibly sag and appear loose
  • Busts may flatten with nipples pointed downward
  • Abdominal skin may extend, contributing to an apron-like overhang
  • Buttocks and thighs can droop causing hanging pockets of skin

Surgical physique contouring improves the design and tone of your underlying muscle that supports excess fat and skin and removes excess sagging skin.
