Advanced options in body contouring are helping women improve the results of their breast enhancement surgery. One plastic surgeon explains how.
National Harbor, Maryland (October 2009)—Many women who want fuller breasts are turning to procedures beyond just breast augmentation in Maryland to help them achieve the look they want. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Chiaramonte, founder of Bella Cosmetic Surgery, says that body contouring surgery is growing in demand with women who want to emphasize their breasts by reducing excess fat in typically “overlooked” areas.
“Cosmetic surgery is all about creating balance, and combining body contouring procedures with your breast augmentation can have an immense impact on how balanced your body appears,” notes Dr. Chiaramonte. “Many women are adding these procedures to their Alexandria area breast enlargement surgery for exactly that reason.”
Typical Northern Virginia and Maryland breast enhancement procedures focus on the breasts alone, but Dr. Chiaramonte says that in recent years, many surgeons have been offering paired procedures designed specifically to create more “complete” results. Most women will add just liposuction or a tummy tuck, but Dr. Chiaramonte says that, at his practice, many women have decided to include additional procedures such as arm lift and an advanced abdominoplasty procedure he calls the Bella Body Lift.
“Standard tummy tuck and liposuction procedures have plenty to offer patients because they can help slim areas that can make the body look bottom-heavy,” Dr. Chiaramonte explains. “However, many patients also have concerns about fat or muscle laxity in areas like the upper arms, the buttocks, and the flanks, and that’s where these other procedures can make a big difference.”
At the practice of Maryland plastic surgeon Dr. Chiaramonte, the top alternative to the standard body contouring options is the Bella Body Lift, a liposuction-abdominoplasty variation that he designed specifically to address the upper abdominal area. Typically, he will perform this type of combined breast and body enhancement in one procedure, but Dr. Chiaramonte says he is also seeing more women who have already had breast surgery choose body contouring as a follow-up procedure.
“More patients understand that these procedures can complement each other,” he explains. “Every woman wants a youthful, sexy appearance, and in many cases, that means taking steps to enhance the breasts while making the body look slimmer, smoother, and more balanced.”
