Body Contouring: What are My Options?

Body Contouring: What are My Options?

At Allegany Plastic Surgery, we offer a full range of body solutions to address your unique needs.

Tummy tuck – For skin laxity that’s not going anywhere, a tummy tuck is a great option to eliminate that extra skin for good. A tummy tuck may be helpful for patients that have excess skin left over from pregnancy, weight loss or general aging.

Liposuction – If you have excess fat that is localized to a specific area, liposuction can be used to permanently remove stubborn pockets for patients that are having a hard time losing it the traditional way. Dr. Carpenter offers both traditional and laser liposuction.

Mommy Makeover – While children are a gift themselves, give yourself the gift of body rejuvenation. Many women experience big changes in their bodies from childbearing. Pregnancy and birth can cause stress on the whole body, making a mommy makeover the perfect comprehensive procedure.

Body Lifts – Whether age, dramatic weight loss or childbearing has caused you to be left with a lot of excess skin, body lifts are a great solution to removing large amounts of excess skin. Lifts can be done on arms, thighs and on the upper and lower parts of the body. A Brazilian butt lift is another type of body lift that is particularly good for enhancing your backside.

Recover in Time for the Holidays with One of These Procedures

It might be too late to start planning a bigger surgery like a breast augmentation or tummy tuck if you want to recover in time for the holidays, but there are plenty of nonsurgical treatments that can give you effective results! Some of our most popular nonsurgical options include:


A SAFE lift or, suture assisted facial elevation, is like a less invasive facelift! Using techniques such as liposuction, conservative skin excision, and suspension sutures, this procedure can treat mild to moderate sagging in the face. Because the skin is not lifted off of the tissue like it is in a traditional facelift, the recovery is much quicker with less discomfort. Most patients can return to normal activity within one to two days with a full recovery time of five to seven days.


If you want to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles without an invasive surgery, you might consider Botox. Botox is an injectable treatment that temporarily limits muscle contractions that are causing wrinkles. The treatment process only takes about ten minutes and can give effective, lasting results after just one session.

Cellulaze Cellulite Treatment

Virtually all women report having some degree of cellulite. Many individuals make the mistake of thinking cellulite is a result of excess fat, however, cellulite is actually a structural problem with the tissue beneath the skin. Cellulaze targets cellulite at the source using laser energy. The energy is delivered to the dermis to produce stronger skin and increase elasticity. After treatment with Cellulaze, you might experience some mild symptoms like bruising and swelling, but you will be able to return to all normal activity within a day or two. Get the result you want in time for the holidays with one of these treatments! To schedule an appointment and find out what you are a candidate for, contact our office today.
