Florida Body Contouring Practice Sees Strong Interest Despite Slow Economy

Share Article

Even though money is tight for many residents of Fort Lauderdale and Miami, body contouring procedures such as liposuction and tummy tucks continue to be in demand for men and women who feel that looking their best plays a key part in how they feel and their overall quality of life.

At least one surgical practice performing body contouring in Florida is seeing consistently high numbers of patients despite the economic downturn. South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery (http://www.southfloridabody.com) is finding that women and men continue to demonstrate strong interest in procedures like abdominoplasty and liposuction.

Many of the surgeons who work at the practice use a "total transformation" approach to plastic surgery. "My Miami body contouring patients have found that because liposuction and tummy tuck often improve how fit they feel, their cosmetic surgery gives them a refreshed perspective and increased motivation in their daily activities," says Dr. Timothy Alexander, who has been performing cosmetic surgery in South Florida for over 25 years. "The result of a well-performed body contouring procedure is often a better outlook and stronger view of the self."

South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers traditional options to eliminate stubborn fatty deposits and tighten lax stomach muscles, but also provides choices that Fort Lauderdale and Miami body contouring patients find attractive because they utilize advanced technologies for surgeries that are more precise, have quicker recovery times, and in some cases may be even more affordable.

Smartlipo™ modernizes traditional liposuction procedures by melting fatty deposits through the use of a small laser. This lipo method may be particularly useful to patients whose fatty deposits accompany loose, sagging skin because the laser heat is able to contract subcutaneous collagen layers, which then draw excess skin into a tighter, naturally firm position.

Many of the doctors at the practice are also seeing renewed interest in the mini tummy tuck procedure, says Dr. Jon Harrell, another surgeon who works at the South Florida Center. "My new patients are taking advantage of this procedure because it can provide the benefits of a conventional Fort Lauderdale tummy tuck - tighter tummy, firmer contour - with less scarring and a shorter recovery time. Body contouring candidates whose abdominal muscles are significantly looser may require a more extensive procedure, but for many, the mini procedure is all that's necessary."

South Florida patients may also favor these procedures because both the mini tummy tuck and Smartlipo usually do not require general anesthesia, and can be performed as relatively quick outpatient procedures. The practice also attributes some of its continuing success to the atmosphere of safety and trust it aims to cultivate through patient education and high safety standards.

"The practice has a longstanding track record of good results and a high patient satisfaction rate," adds Dr. Alexander. "Many people know someone in Fort Lauderdale or Miami who has had a procedure and see how much more vibrant they are afterward. It's only natural to want to find out if that can happen for you as well. The desire to look and feel better doesn't change with a slow economy, and my patients continue to see cosmetic surgery as a smart investment in themselves."

South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery (http://www.southfloridabody.com) is dedicated to helping women and men improve their appearance and enhance their quality of life through cosmetic surgery. In addition to body contouring, the doctors at the practice perform a full range of breast enhancement and facial sculpting procedures, including breast augmentation and face lift. The Center has two locations in Miami and Fort Lauderdale to serve patients from across the South Florida area.
