Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Weight loss, aging, and pregnancy often combine to create a “deflated” sagging abdomen that exercise and diet don’t seem to improve. Abdominoplasty or “tummy-tuck” can tighten a sagging stomach with an incision hidden beneath the underwear line or within a stomach crease. A tummy tuck will remove extra skin and fat from the lower portion of the abdomen. In addition, muscles under the skin that have become stretched, separated, or damaged in any way can be tightened up during the procedure, while any existing hernias are repaired. The result of your tummy tuck is a tighter, firmer abdomen with an inconspicuous incision. Depending upon your specific needs, Dr. Cole may perform either a traditional “tummy tuck” or a “mommy tuck” which utilizes a smaller incision and less invasive surgery. Either way, these tummy tuck procedures are done in an outpatient setting under general anesthesia. Bruising and swelling typically resolve within 2-3 weeks and patients often return to work within 10-14 days.
Labiaplasty is a broad term that encompasses a tremendous number of options for the ever-growing field of vaginal rejuvenation. The main difference between a labiaplasty and other treatments under the “vaginal rejuvenation” umbrella is that a labiaplasty is a surgical procedure. The labiaplasty procedure aims to decrease the size of the labia minora (the inner tissues of the female genitalia) so that it is flush with the labia majora (the outer part of the female genitalia). The size or prominence of the labia majora may be decreased as well if desired. This procedure involves utilizing several different surgical techniques depending on the patient’s specific situation and goal. There are a host of reasons females have enlarged labia, including childbirth, aging, sexual activity, and genetics. Patients may choose to have surgery for several reasons. First, there are several functional benefits when electing for a labiaplasty. Many females who suffer from an enlarged labia experience difficulty with exercise, hygiene, urinary tract infections, sexual activity, and other physical activity. Furthermore, with the increasing trend of wearing yoga pants, workout pants, and certain swimsuit styles, an enlarged labium can make it difficult to comfortably wear such clothes. Additionally, many patients describe feeling self-conscious with their partners. When considering labiaplasty surgery it is critical to really establish your goals and desires so that the chosen procedure perfectly suits your needs. Dr. Cole will work closely with you to formulate a plan that is just right for you.
