Liposuction can be a great option for removing the stubborn pockets of fat that diet and exercise can’t address. Every body is different and fat distribution and body shape are genetically determined. This means that in some cases, surgery can be used to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and shape.
This procedure, also known as an abdominoplasty, removes the excess skin and fat that hangs over your lower abdomen. It greatly improves your body shape and silhouette, the fit of your clothes, and reduces the hygiene hassles associated with the overhanging drape of excess skin and fat. The abdominal wall is also tightened and your belly button is placed in an appropriate position.
This procedure greatly improves the shape and appearance of the upper arm by removing the loose, floppy tissue that often results after significant weight loss. The result is a more normal shape, less heavy upper arm with smoother transition from arm to chest. The operation is also known as a brachioplasty and is one of the fastest growing body contouring procedures.
The mommy makeover is a complementary combination of plastic surgery procedures done to help you get your pre-baby body back. It can include a mix of tummy tuck (to remove loose skin and regain firmness) and breast enhancement (which can include breast lift and/or breast augmentation). Although childbirth is a gift, it can take a lasting toll on the body. To reverse the effects of childbirth, c-section and nursing, patients oftentimes seek surgery to restore their bodies and raise their self-esteem.
Dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise has many benefits. It’s not uncommon to retain excess skin and small pockets of fat on various areas of the body. The skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size. Dr. Crabtree has teamed up with bariatric surgeon Dr. Steven Fowler to create The Hawaii Center for Body Contouring Surgery to address these issues. These doctors work closely to plan the rewarding steps toward the end of this transformation process.
Thigh lift surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess hanging skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. A thigh lift improves the overall contours of the thighs, improves the fit of clothing and may be performed in combination with liposuction and other body lifts.
Renuvion also known as J Plasma is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses subdermal cold plasma energy to instantly tighten and rejuvenate most anywhere on the neck and body. Dr. Crabtree is the first and only surgeon in Hawaii to use this new technique to shrink and sculpt loose and lax skin without large incisions, downtime or the need for general anesthesia.
Lower Body Lift:
A body lift improves the shape, tone and overall silhouette of the entire lower body by removing excess skin and the underlying fat. A complete lower body lift treats the buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and upper thighs in one procedure.
Hands tend to show our age more than any other body part. To reverse the aging process, Dr. Crabtree offers some procedures to rejuvenate and restore the youthful look of your hands.
