Abilene Plastic Surgery & MedSpa is here to help you achieve your goals with an unparalleled selection of the most advanced treatments in body contouring, from liposuction to CoolSculpting® non-invasive fat reduction.
Our medical director, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bridge, along with his highly trained expert staff, offer years of experience and state-of-the-art techniques to safely slim, trim, and tighten your contours with manageable downtime. Here’s a closer look at some of our most popular treatments and how they may help you start the new year off feeling amazing!
If you would like to remove large areas of excess fat, such as a spare tire, saddle bags, or male breasts (gynecomastia), liposuction is a trusted and highly effective solution. This minimally-invasive treatment suctions fat from your body through a tiny cannula to reveal immediate improvements to your contours. Liposuction is also ideal for slimming smaller areas, such as a double chin. You’ll experience swelling for several weeks following your treatment, but you should be able to return to your regular activities within a few days to a week following your surgery. Optimal benefits are typically seen within three to six months following your treatment. Best of all, once you remove your fat, it can’t come back, so your improvements are long-lasting, providing you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
CoolSculpting® non-invasive fat reduction
CoolSculpting was created to tame pinchable areas of fat, such a love handles, under arm fat, bra fat, or a double chin. It’s ideal for those who are happy achieving subtle improvements over time without undergoing any surgery or downtime. This non-invasive fat reduction treatment literally freezes away your fat cells with a cooling applicator to reveal gradual improvements up to three months following your treatment.
Surgery after weight loss
Once you’ve achieved your ideal weight, it’s not uncommon for your body to need some extra help adjusting to your new contours. If weight loss has resulted in areas of loose, sagging skin, you may benefit from a simple surgery or a combination of treatments to remove excess skin and tighten and firm up your appearance. Dr. Bridge will tailor your treatment to your body’s unique needs. He may combine treatments, such as liposuction with a surgical lift or laser skin tightening to achieve the best possible results.
Laser skin tightening
Sometimes your skin simply needs a little tightening. Laser skin tightening helps to tighten and firm areas of moderately lax, wrinkled skin by stimulating your skin’s healing response with non-invasive infrared energy. Laser skin tightening can be an effective solution for patients wishing to avoid surgery or downtime!
