Vero Beach FL plastic surgeon William H. Frazier describes four abdominal contouring procedures. A male or female patient may need a panniculectomy, tummy tuck (which may be a part of a mommy makeover), abdominoplasty, or liposuction.
Dr William H. Frazier, FACS is a Yale-trained, experienced cosmetic surgeon who has been practicing in Vero Beach, Florida and the Treasure Coast for over 25 years. In a recent video posted on his YouTube channel, he recently addressed what types of surgery are age appropriate for each age group.
He opened the presentation with the following statement, "Hi I'm Dr. William Frazier, of Vero Beach Cosmetic Surgery & Medispa in Vero Beach Florida. I want to talk just for a minute about abdominal contouring which includes a panniculectomy, a mommy makeover type of tummy tuck, muscle tightening abdominoplasty or circumferential liposuction." He explained each procedure in further detail including it's purposes and differences but emphasized the benefits of skin smoothening, tightness and preservation of the belly button.
He went on to say, "So depending upon the problem a person has we would use on of these four approaches but in all cases we're interested in the skin ultimately being smooth, the shape being right and the belly button staying where it belongs - in the middle of the abdomen (in the midline)."
Dr. Frazier made recent headlines with the new offering of his Facetime facelift or Facetime Lift, a procedure which rejuventates the appearance of the face by lightening the nasal labial folds between the nose and mouth (often called "marionette lines") and elevating the jowels at the chin line resulting in smoother skin in the lower portion of the face and a well-rested, younger look. He has also touched other sensitive topics that have touched on male confidence such as gynecomastia (man-boobs).
