Revolutionary Approach to Body Contouring

By Dennis Hurwitz on March 08, 2018

PITTSBURGH, March 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Pittsburgh Center for Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the latest body contouring surgery available, each designed to give patients an optimal figure. Thanks to VASERlipo®, lipoabdominoplasty, and oblique flankplasty, Dr. Dennis Hurwitz can give patients a slimmer waistline, better-defined stomachs and abs, and improved body image and self-confidence.

High-Definition VASERlipo®: Gentle, Minimally Invasive Liposuction
VASERlipo® uses a combination of tumescent fluid and ultrasound vibration to improve the fat removal process. The tumescent fluid firms up the unwanted body fat. Then, the vibration from the special VASERlipo® cannula helps loosen and break up the fat, making the procedure much easier on the patient's body. Overall, VASERlipo® is gentler on the treatment area, and achieves a smoother, better-contoured appearance.

Lipoabdominoplasty for Better Body Contouring
Traditional abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) helps remove loose skin around the lower abdomen after major weight loss. While the results of tummy tuck surgery are good, lipoabdominoplasty can provide better contours for flatter, more toned stomach.

Using VASERlipo®, Dr. Hurwitz can improve the overall abdominal shape before removing excess skin. Using a smaller incision along the lower abdomen, the modified tummy tuck technique removes sagging, dropping tissue. Lipoabdominoplasty patients experience a tightening of the abdominal skin, leading to a flat, sculpted figure.

Oblique Flankplasty: Going Beyond the Body Lift
For major body contouring needs, a lower body lift is often recommended. However, Dr. Hurwitz has pioneered a revolutionary new form of surgery for the lower torso known as the oblique flankplasty. The oblique flankplasty targets the sides of the body, where love handles and loose skin can have a negative impact on someone's figure.

Combining the oblique flankplasty with lipoabdominoplasty can create an hourglass figure for women and a sculpted, masculine torso for men. The total revision of the patient's body is dramatic, yet natural.

Surgical Expertise Means Unmatched Results
Dr. Hurwitz is a skilled and well-respected cosmetic plastic surgeon with more than 40 years of experience. His peers have recognized his innovations in body contouring, and often consult his expertise when it comes to body sculpting matters.

On April 28th, Dr. Hurwitz will present a course on oblique flankplasty at The Aesthetic Meeting. Hosted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), this multi-day global meeting brings together the finest minds in cosmetic surgery and skin care.

Knowledge like this means patients can expect high-quality care, excellent surgical outcomes, and results that enhance their appearance as well as their quality of life.
