Whether as the result of aging or fluctuations in weight, skin can begin to droop and sag as it loses elasticity. While a good diet and active lifestyle will help maintain a healthy weight, the loose areas of skin will often stick around.
Dr. Hernandez performs a variety of body contouring and skin tightening surgeries to help reshape the body and restore confidence in one’s appearance. These procedures are specially designed to reduce excess skin and restore a youthful and natural shape.
Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez currently offers the following contouring procedures for men and women at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio.
An arm lift can help to reduce sagging excess skin from along the upper arms. This is a common problem following a significant drop in weight and can also develop with age. Dr. Hernandez can remove the loose skin and create a naturally toned and youthful appearance of the arms. No more hiding beneath long-sleeve tops or feeling too shy to wave hello.
A lower body lift addresses a circumferential area of loose skin around the lower body, including the abdomen, lower back, flanks, and buttocks. Dr. Hernandez recommends a full lower body lift for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight and are now struggling with large areas of loose skin throughout their body.
A thigh lift is performed to reduce loose, drooping skin from the upper thigh area. Sagging of the skin on the thighs can also occur due to factors such as weight loss and age. Dr. Hernandez can perform a thigh lift procedure to help restore a firm and sleek appearance of the legs so that patients can once again feel confident in a pair of shorts or bathing suit while enjoying the San Antonio sunshine.
Pregnancy and weight gain can often stretch the skin or damage the underlying abdominal muscles, leaving behind an unwelcome belly bulge once the body returns to its smaller size. Dr. Hernandez performs a tummy tuck to reduce sagging abdominal skin and restore a flatter, well-contoured midsection.
A mini tummy tuck is a less-invasive variation of the traditional tummy tuck. Dr. Hernandez performs this procedure using a shorter incision than that of the tummy tuck in order to reduce excess abdominal skin that rests predominantly beneath the belly button. Patients experiencing outstretched abdominal muscles or larger amounts of excess skin may benefit more from a full tummy tuck procedure.
Lose a bit of stubborn fat and enhance your backside in the process—that’s the appeal of the popular glute-enhancing Brazilian Butt Lift. Dr. Hernandez performs this surgery for women who are wanting to improve the shape and size of their backside. The Brazilian Butt Lift uses liposuction to harvest and prepare fat cells from unwanted trouble spots (such as the back or belly) and uses this fat to enhance the shape of the bottom for a naturally fuller appearance.
Slim your problem areas by treating stubborn fat and loose skin with BodyTite and FaceTite RFAL treatments. Using radiofrequency thermal heating, Dr. Hernandez can help refine the natural contours of your body without surgery and minimal downtime.
