Michigan's Best Body Rejuvenation

More often than not, envy-inducing curves aren’t a gift from Mother Nature. They come through diligent work, lots of effort, and frequently, help from a skilled plastic surgeon. Cosmetic surgery for the body can improve curves, remove unwanted fat, tighten loose muscles, and remove excess skin. Body treatments are popular after weight loss and pregnancy, as they can give you the stunning shape you’ve been dreaming about.

Your body works hard for you. Doesn’t it deserve a little TLC? At Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery, we offer the body shaping and sculpting treatments you need to look your best and radiate confidence. Our skilled plastic surgeons use the latest techniques in body contouring to provide our patients with exceptional results.

Shape and sculpt your body with a body contouring treatment with Dr. Pramit Malhotra or Dr. Tiffany Ballard. Call one of our conveniently located plastic surgery offices to schedule your consultation or learn more. Ann Arbor: (734) 913-5100 or Jackson (517) 789-9800.

Where do you have unwanted fat? If you’ve tried diet and exercise but can’t shake those love handles or that muffin top, ask us about liposuction. This treatment uses very small incisions to allow your surgeon to manually remove fat cells from the body. These cells are gone forever, so patients experience a long-lasting improvement.

Liposuction is often mistaken as a weight loss treatment, but the truth is that you’ll get better results if you are near your ideal weight. Liposuction is a body contouring treatment. It targets stubborn fat cells and trouble spots but isn’t ideal for large scale fat or weight loss. We generally recommend that patients be within 10-20 pounds of their goal weight prior to treatment, so that liposuction can be used to eliminate bulges and give you beautiful contours.

Before and After

Some procedures are best when paired together. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery offer complementary benefits. A tummy tuck tightens and shapes, while liposuction removes fat and sculpts. When performed together, the two procedures work synergistically, producing an even better result than if they were performed separately. Get the benefits of both treatments with one trip to the operating room.

The PowerTuck is our name for a tummy tuck and liposuction done in combination. This combination treatment reduces downtime and recovery, as patients recover from both treatments together. Pairing treatments means less time off work, less downtime, and achieving your ideal body sooner.

When combining treatments, choosing a skilled plastic surgeon is essential. Dr. Malhotra and Dr. Ballard are both highly-trained in body shaping and contouring treatments. Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery is the top choice for aesthetic treatment for many patients from across the state, largely due to the skill of our surgeons.

For many women, talking about the labia can feel a bit awkward, but we can give you utmost confidence and provide a comfortable environment in which to discuss your concerns. Labiaplasty reshapes the labia minora or majora, improving their appearance and reducing rubbing and chafing. Many women experience changes to the labia after pregnancy and childbirth and this procedure can restore comfort in this delicate area.

During labiaplasty, the skin and tissues from the labia are reshaped. We use advanced techniques, including a trim or wedge resection, and customize the surgical approach to address each patient’s unique anatomy. Your surgeon will work with you to plan surgery and choose the surgical method that is most appropriate for the best result.

Ann Arbor Plastic Surgery is pleased to have one of the area’s top female plastic surgeons, Dr. Ballard. Patients that are more comfortable working with a woman for this intimate procedure can meet her.

Before and After

We all notice the changes in our bodies that occur as a result of passing time, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.  You may see that your once flat tummy is not as taut or sleek as it used to be.

A tummy tuck procedure, also called an abdominoplasty, restores a flat, tight abdomen by removing excess skin and fat and tightening the abdominal muscles. As skin removal shifts the position of the skin, the belly button is lifted and repositioned. Reverse the effects of pregnancy and weight changes and achieve a youthful, flat abdomen again.

Our surgeons both offer tummy tuck procedures and have extensive training and experience with this procedure. We also offer revision tummy tuck surgery, for patients that are experiencing complications or that did not achieve the desired result from a previous abdominoplasty at another practice.

Babies change the body. There’s no disputing the fact that your body is different after pregnancy. Our mommy makeover combines plastic surgery treatments to address and reverse many post-pregnancy body complaints.

What procedures are included in a mommy makeover? Your customized treatment will be crafted for you by one of our skilled plastic surgeons. It will target your exact body concerns. Common treatments in a mommy makeover include breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, and labiaplasty. Our goal is to help you feel comfortable and beautiful in your post-baby body.

A mommy makeover is a combination treatment, and that means unique benefits for our patients. We typically combine multiple procedures in a single surgical session. If you’re receiving several procedures in your mommy makeover, you may need more than one operation, but whenever we can safely do so, we combine them. Performing multiple treatments together reduces downtime and missed work. Patients recover from their surgeries concurrently, which is especially helpful for our mommy makeover patients with young children, as arranging post-surgery childcare can be one of the most challenging parts of cosmetic surgery.
