“An outstanding professional! Dr. Hadeed exceeded my expectations!”
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Tummy tuck surgery can help patients struggling with sagging skin and excess fat on their abdomen. It can also treat muscle separation caused by significant weight gain or pregnancy.
Abdominoplasty is performed through a single incision along the lower abdomen just above the groin. This allows Dr. Hadeed to tighten the skin and produce a smoother and slimmer abdominal contour.
Most patients can return to work within two to three weeks. You will need to wear a compression garment and avoid strenuous physical activities for at least six weeks.
Body Contouring After Weight Loss
Body contouring after weight loss involves a combination of plastic surgery procedures. While most of the procedures on this page are considered body contouring, certain ones are highly beneficial for people who have lost weight.
These procedures can address the aftereffects of significant weight loss, such as excess, drooping skin and fat deposits in multiple areas. Body contouring after weight loss can help patients restore more slender, smooth, and firm contours in the arms, abdomen, waist, back, buttocks, and thighs.
Recovery time after body contouring will vary depending on the number of procedures performed and the extent of each technique. Generally speaking, patients can return to work within two to four weeks of their operation. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for at least six weeks after surgery.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
Arm lift surgery is performed to reduce sagging skin and tissue on the upper arms. This can include ‘bat wings’ of sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and lax tissues. Arm lift surgery can address these concerns and leave your arms looking slim, firm, and youthful.
Most patients will experience swelling and discomfort for two to three weeks after surgery and can return to work after three weeks. Final results may take slightly longer to become visible.
Body lift surgery is often performed following significant weight loss. It is used to lift sagging skin on the flanks, buttocks, and abdomen. Similar to an extended tummy tuck, a body lift can address the midsection, back, hips, butt, and thighs.
This procedure involves removing unwanted fat, lifting and securing sagging skin, and smoothing out your body contours to create a firm and youthful appearance.
Most patients will need at least three weeks to recover before returning to work. You will need to refrain from physically demanding activities for at least six weeks as your incisions heal and swelling fades. Final results can take three to six months to fully develop.
A butt lift procedure (commonly called a Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL) is a combination of liposuction and fat grafting used to enhance the size, shape, and appearance of the buttocks. It works by extracting fat from one area of the body, purifying it, and injecting it into the buttocks.
Most patients will need to sit on a special BBL pillow for three to six weeks and sleep on their side or stomach. This is to avoid putting pressure on the grafted fat until it has stabilized. You may return to work within two to three weeks of your procedure.
Hand rejuvenation treatments consist of dermal fillers, chemical peels, fat transfer procedures, or skin excision designed to improve the appearance of your hands. These procedures can address wrinkles, sagging skin, sunspots, and volume loss on the hands. Your treatment can be customized to meet your needs and concerns.
Recovery after hand rejuvenation may vary from a few hours to a couple of weeks. This will depend on the type of hand rejuvenation performed. Most patients will be able to return to work within a week at the latest. Some results will be visible immediately, but fat transfer results may take several months to settle.
Liposuction surgery is a body sculpting procedure that removes unwanted fat and contours a more slender physique. This procedure may be performed alone or in combination with other plastic surgery options.
During the procedure, a small, hollow tube (known as a cannula) is inserted through local incisions to suction out unwanted fat deposits.
Most patients will recover from liposuction within a week or two. Recovery time will depend on the number and extent of the targeted fat deposits. Patients often see final results within four to six weeks as the remaining fat settles in the body.
“Dr. Hadeed was with me every step of the way…”
A Mommy Makeover consists of several plastic surgery procedures that help rejuvenate a patient’s appearance after pregnancy or significant weight loss. It may include cosmetic breast surgery, liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and/or butt augmentation depending on your needs. The main advantage of a Mommy Makeover is combining your plastic surgery procedures into a single operation or series of operations designed to build upon each other.
Patients may need two to six weeks to recover from a Mommy Makeover. Most patients should see a restored and attractive appearance within three to six months.
Dr. Hadeed offers a series of surgical and non-surgical scar revision options. These procedures can reduce the appearance of scars and increase the functionality of scarred areas.
Scar revision techniques can remove scar tissue, smooth skin, and restore areas restricted by tight scar tissue.
Most patients will be able to return to work within a few days to a week following their procedure. This may vary depending on the extent of the removed scar tissue.
