Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Huntington, NY that specializes in mommy makeovers, tummy tuck surgery and other body contouring procedures. Body contouring after weight loss surgery and/or pregnancy can help reduce excess skin and fat, and also restore tightness and elasticity to the skin. After major weight loss, certain areas of your body may sag and appear misshapen, masking the changes your weight loss has provided.
These areas, such as the face, neck, arms, breast, abdomen, buttocks and thighs, can be easily improved through multiple procedures that will lift and sculpt your new and improved body. Known as a body lift when combined together, you can pick and choose which procedures you would like to help achieve the look you desire.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Life events like pregnancy and weight fluctuation can affect the abdomen in a significant way. Diet and exercise cannot get every person exactly where they wish to be, cosmetically speaking. This is why tummy tuck surgery continues to be a popular cosmetic procedure. Dr. Rhee specializes in tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for her patients in Long Island.
Mini Tummy Tuck
Partial abdominoplasty, or “mini tummy tuck”, is similar to the regular tummy tuck procedure, except it involves a shorter incision and the skin is only lifted to the navel, which does not have to be moved. A mini tummy tuck is ideal for those who need just a little improvement in order to reach their desired results.
Dr. Charlotte Rhee specializes in Mommy Makeovers. A woman’s body changes as she matures into motherhood, but there’s no reason why any woman can’t restore her body. A Mommy Makeover can help you create the look that is ideal for your lifestyle, personality, and long-term goals.
Liposuction, also known as lipo, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that removes localized areas of fat from the body. Liposuction can be used to treat localized fat deposits within the thighs, abdomen, arms, buttocks, back, and hips. If you have stubborn fat that is resistant to exercise and diet, you may be a candidate for liposuction.
What Dr. Rhee’s Patients Say
If you have loose, sagging skin and uneven contours, a body lift may help to achieve a firmer, more youthful-looking body. Most patients who undergo a body lift have lost a large amount of weight, leaving excess skin on their bodies.
