Body Contouring

Salt Lake City Tummy Tuck, Liposuction, Arm Lift, Thigh Lift, Vaginal Rejuvenation

Dr. Brian Reuben specializes in giving Salt Lake City patients a more aesthetically appealing figure through body contouring. Dr. Reuben artfully sculpts the body through tummy tucks, arm lifts, thigh lifts, and lower body lifts.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

The arm lift procedure, or brachioplasty, removes loose skin and fat from the upper arms. This is done through liposuction and in some cases through surgical removal of extra skin as well.

Dr. Reuben recommends an arm lift when the skin tone of the upper arm is poor and patients have a significant amount of extra skin to be removed. An arm lift can also reduce the folds of skin and fat on the upper chest near the armpit. Patients who have undergone an arm lift benefit from a more youthful appearance and a thinner arm contour. The incision left by an arm lift procedure is often completely concealed within the armpit or on the inside of the arm in an inconspicuous location.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Abdominoplasty or "tummy tuck" surgery removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen. Additionally, tummy tuck surgery tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and can dramatically reduce bulging of the abdomen. Dr. Reuben also offers tummy tuck surgery as an option for Salt Lake City patients who have achieved significant weight loss.

Buttock lift

A buttock lift is ideal for those who have lost the youthful shape of the thigh and buttock area, leaving a noticeably droopy or dimpled appearance. Usinglipofilling (your own fat tissue),  liposuction or "flaps" of your own tissue, Dr. Reuben can produce a more appealing contour in a patient's thigh and buttocks. His buttock lift procedure also improves the quality of the skin, alleviating skin dimples and minimizing cellulite.

Thigh Lift (Thighplasty)

The thigh lift procedure, also called an inner thigh lift or thighplasty, is sometimes performed as part of a lower body lift. Thigh lift is ideal for patients whose thigh tissue has begun to sag significantly over the years. It is also useful for those who have sagging thighs after losing a large amount of weight.

Liposuction & Fat Grafting

Dr. Reuben uses fat grafting and/or liposuction for body contouring, as well as many other cosmetic procedures such as hand smoothing and repair, facial surgery, breast reconstruction, and breast reduction.

Liposuction conducted for cosmetic body contouring removes fat pockets that have remained in the body despite healthy diet and exercise. Even those in good health sometimes have a disproportionate body shape due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.

Depending on the patient, these fat deposits may be found in almost any area of the body. Liposuction to remove fat deposits can be performed alone, or it may be done in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures such as a facelift, tummy tuck, or breast reduction.

Fat grafting incorporates fat into a new part of the body after the fat has been removed from elsewhere. Using a patient's own tissue is a major advantage of fat grafting, as there is no risk of the fat graft being rejected by the body. Fat grafting is also known as fat transfer, lipofilling, fat autographs, autologous fat transplantation, or fat injecting.

Labiaplasty & Vaginal Rejuvenation / Reconstruction

Women who are uncomfortable with the appearance or structure of their genitalia often suffer from reduced sexual desire, poor sexual self-esteem, or even physical discomfort. Vaginal surgery can restore a woman's sexual interest and pleasure. Dr. Reuben understands the sensitive nature of these procedures and treats his patients with sympathy and care.

Vaginal rejuvenation or Labiaplasty, or labia surgery, is a reduction and beautification of external genitalia according to the patient's preference. Labiaplasty reshapes the inner lips of the vagina ("labia minora") or the outer lips ("labia majora"). Pregnancy and aging can result cause extension of the inner vaginal lips, causing them to protrude past the outer lips. Women with this condition are often self-conscious, and some experience discomfort with undergarments and painful intercourse. Labiaplasty restores a more youthful vaginal appearance and reduces the discomfort of physical and sexual activity.

Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty can be performed together if a patient desires both procedures.
