Top Body Contouring Surgical Procedures
Liposuction – 313,011 in 2012
Liposuction consistently ranks as one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. for both men and women. It is an excellent option to remove stubborn deposits of diet- and exercise-resistant fat on many areas of the body and create a more aesthetically pleasing body contour. Common areas for liposuction include the abdomen, hips, back, thighs, chest, and neck. Dr. Parker performs the less invasive VASER ultrasonic liposuction technique, helping patients enjoy a more rapid recovery.
Tummy Tuck – 156,508 in 2012
Abdominoplasty, or a “tummy tuck,” creates a firmer, flatter abdomen by removing excess skin and tissue from the midsection and tightening the abdominal muscles. As the third most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States, tummy tuck surgery is a popular option among post-pregnancy women, to restore a more youthful, pre-baby shape to their bodies, as well as for men and women who have stretched abdominal muscles and sagging skin following weight loss. Dr. Parker performs both a classic tummy tuck or the Parker Tummy Tuck, which combines liposuction with abdominoplasty to improve the contour of the entire torso.
