Plastic surgery has the ability to transform a feature that we don’t love about ourselves – such as a protruding midsection or flabby thighs – into something that we can proudly show off. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and other body contouring procedures are performed at the Sacramento-area practice of Dr. Shahriar Mabourakh, an experienced and talented plastic surgeon who creates beautiful results for his patients. If you’re interested in improving the appearance of a particular area of your body, please contact Folsom Plastic Surgery and Stockton Cosmetic Surgery Center to schedule a personal consultation with our team.
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or suction lipectomy, removes fat deposits from areas of the body such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, upper arms, and neck. Using a vacuum-like device, Dr. Mabourakh suctions the fat away to improve body shape and curves. Dr. Mabourakh uses several different techniques, including ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty, tumescent liposuction, and super-wet liposuction to achieve the best results with minimal post-operative bruising and discomfort.
A tummy tuck, clinically known as an abdominoplasty, is a suitable option for patients who struggle with a protruding abdomen or a lot of fat around the midsection. Tummy tuck surgery removes fat and skin from the upper, middle, and lower abdomen, and tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall. The result is a firmer midsection and a slimmer profile. A mini tummy tuck is a version of the traditional surgery intended for patients who require less fat removal. Generally, the mini tummy tuck addresses the lower abdomen, beneath the belly button.
Upper Arm / Thigh Lift
Lift procedures are beneficial to patients who have excess skin or fat hanging off the arms or thighs. Suitable candidates include patients who have recently lost a significant amount of weight and notice “crepe-y” looking skin in the upper arms or redundancy of skin in the thigh area. The procedure removes this excess skin from the circumference of the upper arm or thigh, sometimes incorporating liposuction to decrease the overall size of the arm or thigh. The incisions are well-placed in inconspicuous spots, and scarring usually fades.
Brazilian Butt lift bbl
Contouring the body with liposuction and transferring the fat to the buttocks has become known as Brazilian Butt Lift or bbl. During the procedure liposuction of the abdomen, hips and back is performed and the fat is harvested washed and saved for transfer. Other areas such as the thighs, knees and arms can also be treated with tumescent liposuction if more fat is needed or further contouring is required. This harvested fat is than transferred to the buttocks to obtain a fuller rounder looking buttocks.
Gynecomastia is a condition found in males of all ages in which the breast tissue swells due to an imbalance of hormones and testosterone. Patients who suffer from this condition often encounter pain in their chest. The swollen tissue may dissipate on its own once estrogen and testosterone levels even out. If pain and swelling don’t subside upon the completion of puberty, medical treatment or surgery can often help resolve the condition.
Combining plastic surgery procedures can be advantageous for several reasons. First, the recovery period is reduced. Additionally, the results are more dramatic, and there is less risk since anesthesia does not need to be repeated. Finally, it’s a cost-effective option to attain optimal results. Dr. Mabourakh can combine:
- tummy tuck and liposuction
- tummy tuck and breast enhancement
- body contouring procedures
- total facial rejuvenation (face lift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, ear surgery, etc.)
Labiaplasty is a minor surgical procedure to reduce and reshape the pubic area. The labia can be large and noticeable in some women, causing emotional or physical discomfort. A labiaplasty surgically reduces the size of the labia minora or majora, leaving no visible scar. The recovery time is minimal and virtually painless.
