Body Procedures

Liposuction

Even after the implementation of a disciplined weight loss and exercise program, certain parts of our bodies are notorious for holding onto fat, including the chin, midsection, thighs, hips, ankles and more. Liposuction is a surgery that is utilized to minimize these fat deposits, resulting in a slimmer, better-proportioned appearance.

Although liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgeries in the United States, it remains an invasive procedure and requires a high degree of skill to ensure natural-looking results. This is why those interested in the procedure should turn to an experienced, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Ahmed Abdullah who has performed countless successful liposuction surgeries throughout his nearly three decades as a plastic surgeon.

The Liposuction Procedure

Liposuction begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the surgery. Dr. Abdullah will then inject a “wetting solution” into the area to be treated, which is intended to reduce bleeding, bruising and discomfort. Small incisions are made and a cannula (hollow tube) attached to a vacuum pump is inserted into the skin and manipulated to loosen and remove excess fat. Finally, stitches are used to close the incisions.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

More commonly known as a “tummy tuck,” abdominoplasty is effective at eliminating excess fat and skin from the abdomen area. This procedure is often pursued following pregnancy or significant weight loss but is also beneficial for those who have been unable to reduce stubborn fat pockets or tighten loose and sagging abdominal skin using diet and exercise.

To ensure optimal, natural-looking results from your abdominoplasty, look to an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Ahmed Abdullah, who has performed countless successful tummy tucks on patients throughout the Midwest.

The Abdominoplasty Procedure

An abdominoplasty begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the surgery. Dr. Abdullah will then make a horizontal incision just above the pubic bone that may extend between the hip bones. This allows him to lift the abdominal skin and access the underlying abdominal muscles for tightening and the removal of excess fat tissue. In most cases, the belly button will need to be repositioned and excess skin removed before the incision is finally sutured.

Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

As we age or after weight loss, many individuals become concerned about loose or sagging skin on their arms which can give a “bat wing” appearance. Brachioplasty is a procedure used to tighten and smooth the upper arm, resulting in a more fit and youthful appearance.

While brachioplasty is a relatively straightforward surgery, there are risks involved. This is why those interested in the procedure should turn to an experienced, board-certified surgeon like Dr. Ahmed Abdullah. Throughout his nearly three decades as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Abdullah has performed countless successful brachioplasties and achieved a high rate of patient satisfaction.

The Brachioplasty Procedure

Brachioplasty begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure you are comfortable and pain-free throughout the surgery. Dr. Abdullah will then make an incision in a location, such as the armpit or along the inside of back of your arm, the size of which is dependent upon the amount of excess skin. In some cases, liposuction may be utilized to remove excess fat in the upper arm. Dr. Abdullah then tightens and shapes the underlying tissue, inserts internal sutures and, finally, closes the incision.

Thigh Plasty

For those with sagging skin on the thighs, Thigh Plasty (also called a Thigh Lift) is a procedure utilized to reduce excess skin and fat, to smooth the thigh and create a better lower-body proportion.

To ensure satisfaction from your thigh plasty procedure, look to an experienced and skilled board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Ahmed Abdullah. Patients trust Dr. Abdullah with their thigh plasty procedure because of his ability to create a fitter and younger-looking physique and overall natural-looking results.

The Thigh Plasty Procedure

At the start of a Thigh Plasty procedure, anesthesia is administered to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Abdullah will then make an incision in a well-hidden location, such as at the top of the thigh, near the groin, through which he will remove excess fat (if necessary), potentially via liposuction, and tighten muscles and tissues. Excess skin tissue is removed before the incision is closed.

Patients are generally discharged within hours of surgery to allow them to recover at home.

Belt Plasty

As we age and due to fluctuations in our weight, the skin surrounding the lower part of our core (the area that would be touched by a belt) often sags. Belt Plasty is a procedure utilized to lift and tighten the lower abdomen and lower back by removing excess fat and skin.

To ensure satisfaction from your belt plasty procedure, look to an experienced and skilled board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Ahmed Abdullah. Patients throughout the Midwest have trusted Dr. Abdullah with their belt plasty procedure because of his ability to ensure natural-looking results that improve the overall physique.

The Belt Plasty Procedure

At the start of a Belt Plasty procedure, anesthesia is administered to ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Dr. Abdullah will then make an incision that extends around the lower torso, through which he will remove excess fat, potentially via liposuction (hyperlink), and tighten muscles and tissues. Excess skin tissue is removed before the incision is closed.

Patients are generally discharged within hours of surgery to allow them to recover at home.

Recovering from Body Procedures

Recovery details for body procedure surgery is different for each procedure. Generally, patients should expect to take time off of work to heal and avoid heavy lifting for several weeks.

Dr. Abdullah will provide detailed aftercare instructions, as well as options for pain control. In addition, he will provide contact information for he and his staff in the event that questions or concerns arise. Within approximately one week of surgery, you will have your first follow-up appointment with him.
