Dr. Kay’s Surgical Planning Approach
When Dr. Kay plans body contouring surgeries, he first considers the extent and location of excess skin, as well as the elasticity of the skin. If the skin is fairly elastic, then liposuction may achieve the desired results. Otherwise, skin removal will be necessary.
Dr. Kay will also consider whether any underlying muscles require surgical correction. A common example is the abdominal muscles, which often separate during pregnancy. If this is the case, then the muscles will require repair and tightening to achieve the desired results.
