Aesthetic Body Surgery________
Labiaplasty is aimed to women who wish to change the appearance of their vulva, for functional or aesthetic reasons. It can involve large labia liposuction, fat grafting, or labia minora reduction or symmetrisation.
«Mini» abdominoplasty, as it is most commonly known, refers to the treatment of excess skin in the lower abdomen. It is indicated when there is not rectus muscles diastasis and skin excess is limited below the umbilical level. It is less painful than the classic abdominoplasty and there is not periumbilical incision. The horizontal incision is hidden by common underwear choices.
Abdominoplasty is the procedure of choice in order to deal with excess skin+/- fat of the abdominal wall as well as treat rectus muscles diastasis which is commonly encountered following pregnancy or significant weight loss. It is often combined with liposuction and it is performed with infra-umbilical abdominal skin excision. The incisions are around the umbilicus and horizontal, across the anterior superior iliac spine. The horizontal incision is hidden by common underwear choices. If significant tissue excess is present (more common in massive weight loss patients) the patient may benefit from the addition of a central vertical incision in order to improve waist definition. In selected cases the patient may benefit from circumferential abdominoplasty – belt lipectomy.
Excess skin in the upper arms is very common, especially in women, as regardless of exercise and muscle tone, with age, significant laxity can appear. It can be dealt with either via an incision in the axillary border or a longitudinal incision across the biceps. The procedure is commonly combined with liposuction, depending on the patient’s needs.
Liposuction is a very popular plastic surgery procedure. It can be applied to different body areas, depending in patient’s needs, in order to improve body contour. Liposuction is not a weight loss method as its results are optimal in patients with ideal body weight, good skin elasticity and muscle tone. It can be combined with fat grafting when this is desired and can be performed simultaneously with other surgical procedures.
Thighplasty is recommended to patients who present with significant skin laxity, especially in the inner thigh area. It is a common procedure in massive weight loss patients. Incisions can be in the inguinal area or in the inner thigh area. Similarly to brachioplasty, scars may be visible for significant time post-operatively.

During this procedure liposuction and fat grafting is performed in order to improve the shapes of the gluteal area. Depending on the woman’s bodytype, more than one stage may be required as only a percentage of the transferred fat is permanent.
Mommy makeover is a combination of procedures that aim to restore a woman’s appearance to the previous/ideal status, prior to the toll that pregnancy, age and weight changes have taken to her figure. It can include different types of breast surgery (breast augmentation, augmentation-mastopexy, mastopexy, reduction), abdominoplasty, liposuction – even labiaplasty. Important in any case is the communication between the woman and her doctor, in order to be able to express her desires and requirements and formulate a surgical plan that will offer the maximum satisfaction.
