Abdominoplasty is a technique used to remove excessive amounts of fat and tighten loose skin and muscle.
Liposuction and Liposculpting can be used as part of abdominoplasty.
Through the abdominoplasty techniques that Dr. Ramirez has developed, you can have a more athletic waistline, as well as tighter thighs and a tighter - more youthful - pubic area.
Body Contouring is a generic name that can mean anything from the removal of a small amount of fat from a patient's chin to a complete body lift where several pounds of fat and excess skin are removed. Many of the procedures described on this page are used for body contouring; for example, liposuction and liposculpture.
The amount of fat that is going to be removed from a patient will determine the exact technique that Dr. Ramirez will use. Sometimes a procedure will require only one technique while at other times several techniques need to be combined.
When a patient wants to remove excessive skin from the arms, Dr. Ramirez will employ a surgical procedure known as Brachioplasty. Incisions are made in locations that minimize the resulting scars and fat - along with excessive fat - is removed.
Downtime is very short and results are immediately apparent.
Many patients, especially in South Florida, want a Buttock Lift. As the name suggests, this procedure lifts and refines your buttock. The Brazilian Butt Lift, for example, has gained popularity and is characterized by a specific buttock profile. Usually this procedure is preformed by transferring fat from unwanted areas of the body to the buttock or by a buttock implant.
There are a variety of buttock profiles and lifts available and Dr. Ramirez will be happy to discuss with you which one is best suited for your body type.
Dr. Ramirez utilizes Fat Grafting in many of his techniques. Whenever fat is needed during a surgical procedure, for example to plump a patient's cheek, he prefers to harvest a patient's own fat so that the results will be as natural as possible.
Many patients look forward to combined procedures where fat is removed from unwanted areas of the body (for example tummy) and transferred to other areas of the body (for example breast and butt) to enhance their overall appearance.
Liposuction was originally performed - and is still performed - by using a large cannula connected to suction machine. However, Dr. Ramirez refines this technique by using much smaller cannulas and smaller incisions.
In addition, by working on different planes of the body, Dr. Ramirez actually sculpts the body as he removes the fat.
The result is that you will look much better in clothes (and without clothes)!
