Procedures

Dr. Proffitt offers a wide range of procedures in body contouring. View the links to pages within our website, or contact us for more information.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that Dr. Proffitt may use to remove unwanted fat from a patient’s abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Liposuction is not a weight loss method, but a surgical way to remove specific areas of body fat.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical body contouring procedure that removes excess tisse from the middle and lower abdomen. In most cases, a tummy tuck also will repair the stretched muscles of the abdominal wall.

Arm Lift

With brachioplasty, or the upper arm lift, Dr. Proffitt can remove loose skin and excess fat deposits in the upper arm. The aging process or significant changes in body weight can leave a person with sagging upper arms and excess skin.

Body Lift

A body lift is a butt lift combined with a tummy tuck. It treats sagging buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs. Incision patterns vary, and may include a circumferential incision around the body to remove the belt of excess skin and fat.

Thigh Lift

Thighplasty is idea for improving contours of the inner or outer thighs. This may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Through these incisions, Dr. Proffitt will tighten tissues for a smoother, better toned thigh.

Male Breast Reduction

Men who are bothered by excess breast tissue can undergo male breast reduction surgery for a more masculine look. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the chest area, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.
