Performing body procedures for Boston and New England
Body procedures use different methods to reshape body contours and specific body parts for a more aesthetic shape. Dr. A. George Volpe is an award-winning board-certified plastic surgeon known for his reputation for performing body procedures in Boston with outstanding results.
Dr. Volpe can use body procedures to repair, augment, tighten, and reshape specific areas and body parts to improve volume, symmetry, definition, and tone. He will determine a custom treatment plan for each body procedure he performs. This will factor in the patient’s goals and individual anatomy, medical history, and preferences.
Am I the Right Candidate for a Body Procedure?
These procedures can be highly effective for patients at or near a healthy weight who want to improve conditions that have not responded to diet and exercise. If weight loss from diet or post-partum conditions or the effects of aging have you feeling unhappy with your body, a body procedure may be right for you.
Abdominoplasty: An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgical method of creating a firmer, more contoured midsection. It can involve the removal of excess skin and fat and repair of underlying muscles if needed.
Arm Lift: An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes drooping skin and excess fat from underneath the upper arm and tightens underlying tissue for better definition.
Buttock Enhancement: Buttock enhancement is used to improve the projection, volume, and/or firmness of the rear end. Technique options include the buttock lift, the Brazilian butt lift, and silicone implants.
Labiaplasty: Labiaplasty surgically reduces or tightens enlarged labia minora tissue on either side of the vaginal opening.
Liposuction: This minimally invasive surgical procedure removes subdermal excess fat with a suction tube inserted in a small incision.
Mommy Makeover: This multi-procedure cosmetic surgery can restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. Procedures can include a tummy tuck, a mini tummy tuck, a breast reduction, a breast lift, breast augmentation, augmentation mastopexy, and liposuction.
SculpSure: SculpSure is a non-invasive method of fat reduction using thermal energy to heat fat cells. This causes them to break down and be absorbed by the body’s lymphatic drainage system.
Thigh Lift: A thigh lift will eliminate friction irritation and give the thighs a more sculpted appearance. This is achieved by removing fat and excess skin from the inner thighs.
What to Expect After Body Procedures
How much recovery time is needed or what activity restrictions will be necessary after surgery depends on the procedure and the scope of work done. Some swelling, bruising, and manageable discomfort are typical after most surgeries.
Incisions will have a protective dressing that will be removed within a day or so, and depending on the treatment, a compression wrap or garment may be needed to support healing. Smoking could lead to complications such as infection or slower incision healing and should be avoided during recovery.
