Skin reduction surgery is a category of plastic surgery that includes any and all surgical skin excisions. The critical component to every high definition body contouring procedure is the balance between fat and skin. The majority of liposuction/body contouring revision surgeries seen at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute arise from a prior liposuction procedure that was done without assessing the skin texture and looseness.
Skin reduction Surgery use Removing fat while ignoring the skin can cause wrinkling, a deformed look that can only be corrected by a revision of it. As such, the utilization of skin reduction procedures is a key component to high definition body contouring procedures.
What Are Your Skin Reduction Surgery Options
Whether you are a drastic weight loss / post-bariatric surgery patient or trying to regain your body after pregnancy, reduction surgery can highlight your plastic surgery transformation. Surgical options include excisional surgery such as a tummy tuck or breast lift, Renuvion skin tightening, and/or VASER liposuction.
While VASER technology does allow for a bit more skin tightening compared to traditional technologies, it still needs to be accompanied by either excision surgery or Renuvion skin tightening. Being able to interweave these techniques and technologies together is what makes Dr. Mowlavi one of the top body contouring surgeons in the world
Skin Reduction Surgery Example
This 44-year-old patient came to Dr. Mowlavi for a body contouring consultation. She scored much lower on the HDL body scale in the front compared to the back due to her skin redundancy in the abdomen. She needed a full abdominoplasty to reduce the excess skin of the abdomen. In contrast, due to the limited skin redundancy in the back, Dr. Mowlavi used VASER liposuction to perform back contouring.
