Men and women should feel confident and sexy at any age, but maintaining your figure becomes more and more difficult as you get older. Body procedures, or body contouring, have helped many of our Westchester patients restore their confidence and shape by eliminating stubborn fat and getting rid of loose skin that’s developed with age or after pregnancy and weight loss. Our board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini, offers a variety of cosmetic surgeries aimed to give you a body shape you’re proud to see in the mirror.
If you’re interested in one or more body procedures, please contact Westchester Cosmetic Surgical Arts today at (914) 295-2662 to schedule your consultation. We serve patients in surrounding areas of New York.
Lipo can get rid of unwanted fat in nearly every area of the body from your cheeks to your ankles. This fat removal procedure is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the United States, and you have more liposuction options than you may realize. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will personalize your liposuction procedure to fit your aesthetic goals. The surgery typically takes 60-90 minutes to complete and is an outpatient procedure. We also offer TickleLipo, or Lunchtime Lipo.
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini performs the traditional abdominoplasty and the mini-abdominoplasty to deliver a flatter, smoother contour. The full tummy tuck focuses on both the upper and lower abdomen, getting rid of excess skin, tightening abdominal muscles, and eliminating extra fat that’s been resistant to diet and exercise. The mini-tummy tuck is excellent for women who have lost weight or given birth and are mainly concerned about the lower abdomen. Mini-abdominoplasties require less downtime and have a smaller incision than the standard tummy tuck. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will remove excess skin and fat from your stomach area while leaving your navel (belly button) intact for natural-looking mini-tummy tuck results.
Losing a large amount of weight can help you restore good health and achieve a thinner figure, but it does come with its own set of challenges, including loose skin all over your frame. The body lift addresses excess skin tissue and fat and is an especially useful procedure for patients who have had bariatric or gastric bypass surgery. The full body lift involves removing that loose tissue from several areas of your body, which means Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will likely perform the upper and lower body lifts as separate procedures for optimal results and safety.
This comprehensive procedure includes several body contouring surgeries. The lower body lift can involve a tummy tuck, thigh lift, and butt lift while the upper body lift can consist of a breast lift, arm lift, and back lift. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini will make as few incisions as possible to give you a body shape that looks natural and give you a tighter, toned appearance. The full body lift is the only body procedure that requires an overnight stay. All others are performed on an outpatient basis.
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses unwanted fat from another area of your body such as the dreaded “love handles,” thighs, or hips and re-introduces it into your buttocks to provide a fuller, lifted contour. The BBL not only offers a shapelier backside but the added benefit of liposuction. The Brazilian Butt Lift typically takes two to four hours to perform and is less invasive than a buttock implant procedure. The recovery is shorter, but you will need to stay vigilant and avoid putting pressure on your buttocks during the healing process to ensure maximum fat survival.
The upper arm area is a problematic part of the body to tone as few exercises effectively target the “arm flab.” An arm lift, or brachioplasty, contours the upper arm by removing stubborn fat and excising excess skin tissue. The procedure begins with an incision stretching from the underside of your arm from elbow to armpit. Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini may utilize liposuction to provide the best arm lift results. The arm lift takes two to three hours, and you’ll notice a difference immediately—Though your full results will set in once you’ve healed.
Droopy, loose skin around the thighs and knees can be eliminated with a thigh lift procedure performed by Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini to deliver a slim and sexy lower body shape. Our cosmetic surgeon will customize your thigh lift and based on your body and aesthetic goals will perform a medial thigh lift with an incision in the groin area or a vertical thigh lift with a vertical incision starting at the groin area and extending downward. Thigh lift results vary as each procedure is unique, and you’ll enjoy your new figure for years to come if you live a healthy and active lifestyle.
Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who believes in an individualized approach to transforming your figure. Many of these body contouring procedures require general anesthesia, which means your surgery will take place at our Manhattan surgical facility. We will provide transportation to and from Manhattan, and all follow-up appointments will be at Westchester Cosmetic Surgical Arts.
If you struggle with unwanted fat and loose skin, one or more of these body procedures could be right for you. Schedule your consultation in Westchester with Dr. Karlinsky-Bellini today at (914) 295-2662 to see how we can best reach your cosmetic goals.
