SARASOTA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- The start of spring is only a couple of days away -- the first flowers are sprouting and the temperatures are rising. Now that we are slowly shedding our many winter layers and planning our summer vacations, many look in the mirror and see the results of indulging during the holidays and the cold winter. It is time to shape up for the beach season! The first and crucial steps to get there are eating healthy and exercising frequently. But sometimes a balanced diet and an active lifestyle alone are not enough to reach the desired bikini body, no matter how hard we try. A particularly stubborn area is the tummy. Even after losing weight and exercising, the excess skin and fat that remain can only be removed surgically.
An abdominoplasty, generally referred to as the tummy tuck, does exactly that: It removes the extra skin and tightens muscles in the abdominal wall. Suitable candidates for this procedure are both, men and women, who have lost a lot of weight and are now left with loose skin around the belly. Tummy tucks are also a great option for women who had one or several pregnancies and would like to have their abdominal muscles tightened and the skin reduced. Whether abdominoplasty is the right choice for a patient needs to be decided after consultation with a competent cosmetic surgeon who can evaluate all medical implications and offer possible alternatives. One such expert with extensive experience in the field is Dr. Alberico Sessa of Sarasota Surgical Arts in Sarasota, Florida.
For patients that do not only struggle with flabby skin, but also with excess fat deposits around the belly, Dr. Alberico Sessa offers a combined procedure of liposuction and tummy tuck. For the liposuction, a slender surgical tube called a cannula is used to suction fat from localized areas of the body and create smoother, leaner body contours. Liposuction can be performed safely on many areas of the body including the abdomen, buttocks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, calves, ankles, upper and lower back, and upper arms. During the abdominoplasty surgery, once Dr. Alberico Sessa completes the liposuction over the abdomen, the extra loose skin is removed using a small scar hidden in your bikini line. Many patients that come to Sarasota Surgical Arts make use of this combined approach and sometimes even add another rejuvenating measure, such as a breast lift.
Whatever procedure you chose -- with Dr. Alberico Sessa you are in good hands. As a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery* and member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Dr. Sessa has successfully treated hundreds of patients with a high satisfaction rate, so high in fact, that he was awarded the Patient's Choice Award three years in a row. Dr. Sessa was born and raised in New York, but after studying in New York, Connecticut and Louisiana, where he earned his medical degree from the Louisiana State University College of Medicine in 2000, he settled in Florida, where he is now offering his services at Sarasota Surgical Arts. He enjoys spending his free time with his wife Lisa and two young sons. When he gets the chance, you may find him cycling around Sarasota or boxing at the gym.
