+ Abdominoplasty

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a procedure to remove excess lower abdominal skin and fat. If required, the muscles of the abdominal wall are tightened, and excess abdominal skin is removed. Liposuction is commonly performed during abdominoplasty, to give further contour improvements. After abdominoplasty with Dr.Yates, patients have a contoured, tighter, flatter abdomen with improvement in the waistline silhouette. Dr. Yates takes extreme care to work through the smallest scars possible, she diligently closes the scar and hides it in the underwear line.


+ Liposuction

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure performed to address stubborn fat deposits, resulting in a more contoured, sculpted appearing silhouette. Areas commonly treated with liposuction are abdomen,waist, back, flanks, thighs, lateral breast, and chin. Typically incisions are less than 1cm and hidden in the belly button, groin, and breast creased. Liposuction is often perfumed concurrently with other procedures such as abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast or facial surgery. Dr. Yates will guide you during your consultation to determine if you are a candidate for focussed ultrasonic liposuction, or traditional liposuction.

Arm Lift

+ Arm Lift

An arm lift (Brachioplasty) is a procedure to treat loose upper arm skin. Depending on the degree of skin laxity it can be done with liposuction alone, or with unwanted skin removal. Arm liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure and incisions are less than 1cm in the underarm and elbow region. Arm lifting procedures are a powerful way to give you the arm contour you desire. Dr. Yates always try to minimize scars, and hide the incision on the inner aspect of the arm.
