Cosmetic Surgery Procedures – Body Contouring in Louisville, Kentucky

Oftentimes, diet and exercise alone are not enough to achieve the trim and fit body you strive for. Even if you lose weight, there always seem to be those one or two areas that won’t get any smaller, no matter what you try. The solution for these “problem spots” can usually be found in body contouring. Patients will find that body contouring by Kentucky doctor John Derr will provide beautiful, lasting, natural results.

Kentucky residents who come to Dr. John Derr can explore a number of options, from

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift is ideal for patients with excess, sagging skin resulting from recent, large-scale weight loss in the thigh and hip areas. In addition to cosmetic considerations, the presence of excess skin may even be dangerous, as extra folds of skin foster complications like infection and irritation.

Dr. Derr performs thigh lift by making an incision from the inside of the knee up to the groin area. He then tightens the skin, removes the excess fat and tissue, and sutures the incision. Incisions are placed on the inside of the leg to decrease the visibility of scarring. It is important to follow Dr. Derr’s instructions for postoperative care to facilitate proper healing.

Body Lift

People who have lost massive amounts of weight due to bariatric surgery are often disheartened by the large amount of excess skin this procedure can leave behind. The total body lift, an aggressive form of body contouring performed at our Kentucky practice, may be the solution.

Much like a thigh lift, this procedure tightens and reattaches skin to achieve a smoother body contour. The exact location and size of incisions will depend on the amount of skin that needs to be removed. A lower body lift may consist of treatment to the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks; an upper body lift could include treatment to the abdomen, back, and breasts.
