In case you didn’t already know, having liposuction performed on a problem area on your body doesn’t guarantee that the fatty deposit will never come back. Granted, the cosmetic procedure sucks out a limited number of fat cells forever. However, adjacent fat cells will remain in your body, and if your weight fluctuates in the future, those remaining fat cells can grow with future weight gain or shrink with future weight loss.

If you’re an Omaha woman considering getting a breast augmentation, you’re probably wondering if you should get saline or silicone breast implants. Both types are FDA-approved and completely safe for surgery, but they offer different benefits, and some women may prefer one set of benefits over another. To help you decide, we’ve put together this blog post explaining the differences between each type of implant.
Some Omaha men and women visit Dr. Ayoub of Westfield Plastic Surgery because they have stubborn fatty deposits on their body that just won’t respond to diet or exercise – or exist in an area that may not be able to be exercised. Party of your body that may have these unwanted pockets of fat include your abdomen, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, arms, and the area under your chin.
Sometimes, no matter how much an Omaha man or woman exercises, he or she still has extra skin that hangs from his or her abdominal muscles. The reasons are varied. Some people have this excess skin because they recently lost a dramatic amount of weight and, despite their best exercise efforts, this skin just won’t “snap back” into place. Other times, local moms have this excess skin after having children. Some patients never had an issue with excess abdominal skin until they got older, and gravity started to take its toll.

Losing a large amount of weight is something to be celebrated! Not only have you mastered an incredible feat, but you’ve also taken great strides to get healthier and in better physical shape. But for some Omaha residents, simply seeing a drastic drop in the number on their scale doesn’t give them the satisfaction they were truly desiring. After all, losing a significant amount of weight can leave you with excess belly skin that sags or droops, or has a lot of stretch marks.
