Body

Weight loss, pregnancy and aging can bring many undesirable changes on your body. Fortunately, plastic surgeons offer body-slimming and fat-reducing procedures that can restore a proportional body shape. Many of these procedures can be combined for a comprehensive body-contouring treatment. Read on for more information on the body procedures we offer.


Arm Lift

An arm lift is a surgical procedure to 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.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.

Body Contouring After Major Weight Loss

If you have lost a significant amount of weight and find that you have problems with excess skin and sagging tissue in one or many body areas, contact Dr. Alan Pritchard at North Mississippi Medical Center to learn more about body contouring after major weight loss.

Thigh Lift

Improving contours of the inner or outer thigh can be achieved with a thigh lift.  This may require an incision extending from the groin around the hip. Through these incisions your plastic surgeon will tighten tissues for a smoother, better toned thigh.

Body Lift

A complete lower body lift treats sagging buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs in one procedure or in staged procedures. Incision patterns vary, and may include a circumferential incision around the body to remove the "belt" of excess skin and fat.

Tummy Tuck

Abdominoplasty, known more commonly as a tummy tuck, is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.

Breast Reduction for Men

For men who feel self-conscious about excess breast tissue, breast-reduction surgery can help. 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.
