Body Contouring Procedures
in NYC with Dr. Shridharani
Body contouring surgery encompasses an array of routinely performed cosmetic surgery procedures pertaining to the abdomen (tummy), waist (love handles), back, arms, thighs, hips, calves, ankles, and other areas. Worldwide, liposuction is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure. Tummy tucks are routinely performed and part of a “Mommy Makeover” or can be performed by themselves. A Mommy Makeover is comprised of a tummy tuck, possible liposuction, and breast enhancement surgery. “Brazillian Buttlifts” (fat transfer to the buttocks) continues to increase in a number of procedures performed in the United States. When safely and properly done, Body Contouring procedures can be a positive experience and transform your figure into the one you have always wanted.
At LUXURGERY, we are proud to offer the newest techniques and help you achieve your goals in Body Contouring surgery. We perform SmartLipo/laser liposuction and drainless tummy tuck. Dr. Shridharani is excited to be part of ongoing studies and trials to help bring science to cosmetic surgery.
An arm lift or Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the contour of the arms by excess skin and fat being removed. An arm lift procedure by Dr. Shridharani will leave the skin smoother and tighter. An arm lift reduces excess sagging skin that droops, tightens, and smoothens the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm, and reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm.
Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015 to destroy subcutaneous fat cells accumulating under the chin- creating the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring deoxycholic acid (a molecule found in your gastrointestinal tract working to metabolize fat). This non-human and non-animal treatment permanently destroys the fat and tightens the skin surrounding the treatment area. Kybella can be injected in a variety of areas apart from the submental region, i.e. arms, abdomen, and outer thighs to improve the overall contour.
Brazilian butt augmentation, or Brazilian butt lift (BBL), is a type of buttock augmentation procedure that uses a person’s own fat to naturally increase the shape and contour of the buttocks. Liposuction removes fat from other areas of the body (usually the stomach, hips, and thighs). The fat is then transferred to the buttocks. Additional liposuction can be completed around the buttock to improve the appearance of lift and contour, resulting in a perkier and more youthful buttock. The procedure became popular in Brazil and is now routinely performed in the United States.
An autologous fat transfer is removing fat, through liposuction, from one area of the patient’s body to another. For example, fat may be taken from the tummy and love handles and then re-injected into an area of the body where contouring is desired, like the buttocks. The fat is used as a natural filler.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure where a small incision is made and a cannula (a hollow tube connected to a suction device) is inserted to break loose and suction out unwanted pockets of fat. Different methods are used by Dr. Shridharani in New York City depending on your unique needs. He uses the tumescent method in all liposuction procedures, where a solution of saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine is first injected into the target area. This solution constricts the blood vessels to create less blood loss and subsequent bruising, it anesthetizes the area, and it makes the fat easier to break loose and suction away.
A Mommy Makeover operation is a series of procedures that CAN be performed at the same time provided you are a good candidate. The surgeries that are performed address the breasts, abdomen, and flanks/sides of the tummy.
What Our Patients Have to Say
“Wow! What a great surgeon and fantastic staff! I was so scared to get my eyes done and he did a beautiful, natural job. I have subsequently had several other treatments performed (Instalift to face and neck, filler, Botox, Kibella) and all have been great. Dr. Shridharani knows how to make you look youthful without looking overdone. I trust him implicitly! Look no further, Dr. Shridharani is the best!” – Lauren W.
A thigh lift removes excess skin and in some cases — fat from the inner thighs. A thigh lift will improve the contour of the thighs leaving the skin smoother and tightened.
TubelessTuck is a drain-less surgical technique that Dr. Shridharani champions and has used in countless surgeries. This technique is applied to his abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), mini-abdominoplasty (mini tummy tuck), breast reductions, breast lifts (mastopexy), facelifts, as well as neck lifts. A tummy tuck is performed to improve the appearance of the abdomen. A tummy tuck is most often performed on women who have had their abdominal muscles stretched from pregnancy or weight gain or after major weight loss. The skin and extra fat is removed and the result is an improved and flat tummy!
Undergoing surgical body contouring with Dr. Shridharani in New York City following major weight loss removes excess sagging skin and fat which improves the shape of the patient by allowing the underlying support structures of your body to shine through. The result is a more normal appearance with smoother contours and less bulky skin and fat.
