When planning your procedure, we advise setting aside a week for recovery, making sure to limit any vigorous physical activity for about one month to six weeks while your body heals. For a sculpted, defined body, high definition liposuction creates extraordinary results. You can expect the highest level of personal care and professionalism in performing liposuction Memphis has to offer.

Abdominal skin that has been stretched beyond its limits to accommodate the growing child cannot shrink back to its original shape, which can leave a new mom with stretch marks and loose, hanging skin around the midsection. Breasts that go through size fluctuations during pregnancy and breastfeeding can lose volume, perkiness, and shape, and now sag and droop, or look deflated. At University Plastic Surgeons, we perform mommy makeover procedures in Memphis to help you reclaim your body after childbirth and breastfeeding.

Consider the difference in your quality of life when you are no longer concerned about the appearance of flabby arms and have achieved a look that is firm, tight, and smooth. In many cases, saggy upper arms are the result of a dramatic weight loss. While it is exciting and rewarding to be free from excess weight, the upper arms are often left with drooping skin that shakes and wobbles with every arm motion - a distressing and embarrassing condition that can be resolved with a custom arm lift.

read more › In earlier days of plastic surgery, implants were used to enhance butt size and shape. Natural fat transfer is a superior method, as it involves the use of your own fat cells, without the risk of rejection. The fat cells are extracted with a state-of-the-art liposuction system to protect the integrity of the cells, purified, and then injected into the upper area of the buttocks to add shape and projection. If you are genetically programmed to have a flat, unattractive bottom, the use of your own fat can give you a natural, rounded, and attractive butt, while sculpting your waist or other body area that has areas with excess fat.

Generally, you can expect a long surgical appointment, and to be put under general anesthesia. For some patients, the body lift will be performed in stages, with one area resolved and then healed before moving onto the next zone for correction. We carefully monitor the health and safety of our patients and work with talented, highly-trained medical personnel to assist in surgery.

When choosing a breast augmentation surgeon, there is no doubt that experience matters. After undergoing breast augmentation surgery, you want the result to meet or beat your expectations - and not be facing the need for revision surgery to repair damage. While every patient is different, the care with which we perform this procedure could help you avoid some of the pitfalls of a poorly-performed procedure.

read more › The procedure in surgery can vary, based upon the degree of sagging, drooping, and the need to reshape the existing tissue. When performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, the results are a dramatic improvement, with the breasts now reshaped and restored to a youthful position on the chest and excess drooping skin removed. For some patients, the nipples must be moved to a higher location on the breasts for a more beautiful result. The actual nipple structure is moved so the nipples retain function.

read more › Many women struggle with breasts that are far too large for their bodies and bring a host of physical and emotional problems. Breast reduction surgery makes it possible to reshape the breasts and create a more balanced, proportioned figure. Breast reduction surgery varies in what needs to be done for the individual patient. The basic procedure requires incisions through which the excess skin, fat, and tissue is removed and the remaining breast tissue reshaped and lifted. If your breasts are saggy, the incisions are frequently placed vertically on the underside of the breasts and around the areola.

It requires the highest level of surgical skill to perform this type of breast reconstruction surgery. The final result is exceptionally natural in feel - nothing feels more natural than your own fat and tissue. This breast reconstruction technique involves harvesting healthy fat and tissue from another body area, then using the tissue and fat to create a natural breast mound.

When planning a cosmetic surgical procedure to alter breast size or appearance, the most important of all issues is the quality, experience, and surgical techniques of the cosmetic plastic surgeon you select to perform your procedure. At University Plastic Surgeons, we offer a full range of cosmetic breast surgeries.

read more › After a mastectomy, you may be a candidate for one of two methods of breast reconstruction surgery in Memphis. At University Plastic Surgeons, we will work closely with your surgical oncologist to plan the appropriate method by which your breast can be restored. The two approaches are termed "delayed" and "immediate" breast reconstruction. In certain cases, an immediate breast reconstruction can be performed in the same surgical appointment as the mastectomy. To be a good candidate for immediate reconstruction, the need to undergo radiation therapy following a mastectomy is a consideration that should be discussed when planning reconstruction.

read more › Implant-based breast reconstruction in Memphis is often the most practical technique to restore natural looking breasts after a mastectomy. The loss of a breast is often a very traumatic experience. It is important that you discuss breast reconstruction with your surgeon prior to undergoing a mastectomy, as in many cases, the reconstruction can be performed immediately after the mastectomy, in the same surgical procedure. For women who are candidates for immediate reconstruction, the surgery is performed as soon as the mastectomy is completed in the same surgical appointment.
