Sometimes even the strictest diet and the most disciplined exercise regime just aren’t enough to produce the smooth contours and toned muscles you want. There are certain areas of the body that don’t respond well to diet and exercise; the flanks or ‘love handles’ for example. Unsightly bulges, sagging bust lines and a drooping buttocks can project an aged and tired appearance which in no way reflects how you feel on the inside.
Are you dreaming of looking great in evening wear, swim suits or tight jeans? The answer to your dreams may be easier to achieve than you think. Dr. Remus Repta, a board certified cosmetic plastic surgeon, specializes in rejuvenating body sculpting procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck and the highly sought after Brazilian butt lift. With his acute sense of aesthetics coupled with his exceptional skill as a surgeon, you could be enjoying the results of rejuvenation surgery a few short weeks following your procedure.
Most popular procedures for body contouring
Among the most requested body sculpting and toning procedures are:
- Tummy Tuck
- Butt Lift
- Mommy Makeover
Each patient has his or her own body image issues. The initial consultation with Dr. Repta is the first step in forming the surgical plan that will best achieve your specific goals. While some patients may need only one procedure, many will benefit from a combination of procedures in order to attain the toned and sculpted silhouette that communicates energy and beauty. In fact a Mommy Makeover is composed of several procedures usually including a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation.
Pregnancy stretches the abdominal muscles and creates stretch marks on the skin. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, accomplishes several goals. Excess fat and skin are removed which in many cases eliminates the majority of the stretch marks. The abdominal muscles are tightened creating the coveted flat tummy. An additional health benefit is that tightening these muscles also creates more stability and strength in the area.

Mothers can now shed the unwanted effects of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding through a custom set of procedures called the Mommy Makeover. Having a combination of procedures during one surgery reduces overall recovery time by many months. For those with an important event on the horizon, this might be the way to ensure you arrive looking the way you would like to look.
The usual trio of procedures involves a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation with or without a lift. There are other body procedures that can be included such as an arm or thigh lift. Each set of procedures is unique; some moms may only need a tummy tuck and some liposuction, while others may want to include surgical and non surgical rejuvenation procedures for their Mommy Makeover.Learn More about Mommy Makeovers
Brazilian butt lift
A butt lift is quickly becoming one of the most sought after cosmetic surgery procedures in America. This surgery lifts and tightens the muscles in the buttocks creating a sculpted firm silhouette. If an increase in size is needed. Dr. Repta will provide various options to achieve the size and shape you desire. In some cases this will require an implant; in others it may be possible to use a fat transfer procedure.
Liposuction is among the top 5 plastic surgery procedures performed in America. The popularity of this procedure is due in part to advances in technique and the development of the tumescent liposuction method. This method has increased the safety and comfort of liposuction many times over.
Tumescent liposuction uses a very small wand or cannula to deliver fluid containing a powerful anesthetic and vasoconstrictor to the surgical site. This has two benefits; it makes liposuction virtually painless and creates almost no loss of blood.
Dr. Repta is able to specifically target and sculpt areas of the body that are creating imbalances. Areas of the body are very resistant to exercise and include the thighs, particularly the outer thighs, the flanks or love handles, the back and the upper arms. These trouble spots respond very well to liposuction.
Liposuction is not a primary weight loss tool
Liposuction isn’t meant to be a primary weight loss tool. It is usually most successful in patients who have a stable weight that is within 20 pounds of their ideal weight. In some cases, liposuction can be used to boost initial weight loss when there is a substantial amount of weight to be lost. Dr. Repta can discuss large volume liposuction at your consultation and determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
During other body sculpting procedures such as a tummy tuck, butt lift or breast augmentation, liposuction is often used to fine-tune the work accomplished by the surgery. Liposuction allows very precise targeting of small fatty deposits, such as under the chin and the inside of the knees. In these areas, removing fat deposits can make a profound difference in appearance. One of the best things about liposuction is that once the fat cells have been removed, they are permanently gone.Learn More about Liposuction
Large Volume Liposuction
Some people who have achieved massive weight loss are left with large pockets of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise. For these patients, Dr. Repta can safely perform large volume liposuction, which targets these stubborn fat deposits creating a proportionate body shape.Large Volume Liposuction
One of the most under-diagnosed diseases in women in the United States is a fat disorder called lipedema. Women with this disease typically have a much larger lower body compared to the waist up. Diet and exercise are completely ineffective in reducing this type of fat and as time passes, the areas affected grow larger and heavier. Scottsdale plastic surgeon Dr. Remus Repta provides liposuction lipedema treatment as part of an overall treatment plan.Learn More about Lipedema Treatment
