A tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, is often associated with restoring a pre-pregnancy body, but in fact a tummy tuck can be a useful whether you've had a baby or not. Men as well as women can benefit from this procedure if they have loose abdominal muscles, excess skin, and excess fat in the stomach area.

Time is running out to put the final touches on your holiday preparations, including for your appearance. While you can get a facial or a manicure the day before a big party, a little more time is required if you plan on having something like BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or even a chemical peel.
During the holidays, everyone wants to look their best. Holiday parties and reunions with family and friends abound, and since most people get time off of work, it's the perfect time to gift yourself or a loved one a pick me up and boost in confidence through cosmetic surgery or non-surgical rejuvenation.
A breast lift and breast augmentation are two different procedures.

One of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery among both women and men is liposuction. It is a great way to reduce areas of stubborn fat and recontour the body into a more attractive shape. While it is not a weight loss procedure, it can help patients drop a clothing size or two and feel more confident in their body. The best liposuction candidate is someone who is already at or near a healthy, stable weight, although in some cases liposuction can help provide the motivation to kick-start a healthy lifestyle change.
Dermal fillers have become incredibly popular in recent years, as non-invasive cosmetic technology improves and fillers become more targeted and precise. While treatment with dermal fillers cannot take the place of a facelift, they can be used for a wide variety of subtle corrections and rejuvenation.
If you want to reduce stubborn pockets of fat and obtain a better body contour, liposuction can be a great option. However, not everyone is a candidate for liposuction; some people may benefit more from a tummy tuck, or may need to get to a stable and healthy weight before undergoing liposuction for best results. Take our quiz below to see if you may be a good liposuction candidate.
The short answer is no. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and the amount of fat removed is not sufficient to result in a significant drop in pounds. However, the point of liposuction is not weight loss - it's body contour. Often, our Baltimore lipo patients can drop a full clothing size and look much slimmer despite not actually losing weight.
