Body

Plastic surgery involves a broad spectrum of procedures that aim to improve any areas of concern with your body. The most common causes of concern with the body are due to weight loss, prior procedures and pregnancy. Both men and women can benefit from a range of procedures to correct these issues, ranging from a localised concern to complex whole-body transformations.

Every concern with ones’ body is unique and can potentially benefit from the correct plastic surgery procedure to the body. Dr Bernie is committed to working with you to develop a tailored surgical plan by carefully considering and addressing your unique situation through a personalised consultation process.

Dr Bernie offers a wide range of body procedures, the most common of which are listed below.

Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a surgical procedure in which excessive skin and fat in the abdominal region is removed and the abdominal muscles tightened.

Body Lift (Circumferential Abdominoplasty or Belt Lipectomy)

In a Circumferential Abdominoplasty the incision will extend around to the back in an extended tummy tuck to lift the bottom, waist, hips and thighs as well as removing excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat from various parts of the body using a suction cannula (tube) and reshape the body without the removal of skin.

Thigh Lift

A Thigh Lift is a surgical procedure to reshape the thighs by removing excess skin and fat through an incision on the inside of the thigh.

Arm Lift

An Arm Lift is a surgical procedure to reshape the arms by removing excess skin and fat through an incision on the inside or back of the arm.

Body Contouring Surgery

Body Contouring Surgery combines some or all the procedures above in a tailored approach to improve the contour and silhouette of the body by removing excess skin and fat after significant changes in weight.

Male Breast Surgery (Gynaecomastia Correction)

The appearance of breasts in men is not uncommon. Gynaecomastia Correction is a surgical procedure to remove excess breast tissue and restore a more masculine appearance to the chest.

Fat Grafting

Transferring fat from a site of excess to a site of deficiency can be an especially useful procedure on its own, or alternatively as an adjunct to another breast or body operation. Dr Bernie can assess your concerns and advise if you would benefit from this procedure.
