Weight loss surgery is causing a rise in tummy tucks. This cosmetic procedure is used to remove the excess skin at the lower abdomen. Dr. Max Polo, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, says, in case of women, It's not only about skin removal. It's also tightening muscle that has spread apart and is contributing to bulging of the abdomen. Dr Polo explains how he decides the best surgery for his patients and with photos he talks about abdominoplasty.

Kybella is an injectable product for fat reduction, describes Dr. Max Polo, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida.

Liposuction can be done all over the body, explains Dr. Max Polo, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, who also affirms liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It's a body contouring sculpting procedure. Neck, waistline, the abdomen, the love handles and the chest are areas where the surgery can be done with small incisions.
The needles that are used in cosmetic procedures are the smallest needle made in medical science, at least for treatments and injecting in a clinical fashion. Dr. Max Polo, Plastic Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, affirms physicians do everything they can to make those procedures more comfortable for the patients and reduce their anxiety. He also affirms Kybella is a short-time procedure.
