Dr. Wilder's Philosophy on Body Procedures

One of the first questions Dr. Wilder asks is “what bothers you?” He doesn’t want to bring attention to something that doesn’t bother a patient and create insecurities they do not have. Because of this, he earns their trust and loyalty. Another example of this is on the subject of tummy tucks. If the patient could benefit from doing a "skin only” tummy tuck instead of a standard (muscle involved) tummy tuck, he gives that option. This allows for less recovery time and less cost to the patient.

 

 

With his extensive knowledge and expertise on this procedure and many others, he will help you with every step of the way, from the initial consultation to the after-care. Dr. Wilder prides himself on delivering the best results using the most advanced plastic surgery procedures in Austin and he is ready to help you with your body procedures. 

 

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) 

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, removes excess fat and skin and, in most cases, restores weakened or separated muscles creating an abdominal profile that is smoother and firmer.

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals. A tummy tuck will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour that is more proportionate with your body type and weight. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons)

SKIN ONLY ABDOMINOPLASTY

A skin only Abdominoplasty, is very simply a procedure that eliminates excess skin from the abdomen without having to tighten the muscles like in an full abdominoplasty

Liposuction

Liposuction is a great procedure for those who have stubborn fat deposits on the body that don’t respond well to diet and exercise. Dr. Wilder performs many different liposuction procedures in Austin, and can help you determine what kind of liposuction techniques will provide the best results for your individual needs. For a liposuction consultation with Dr. Wilder, please fill out the form on this page.

Are You A Candidate for Liposuction?

A good way to tell if you’re a good candidate for liposuction is if you have realistic expectations about the procedure. If you are healthy and a normal weight with extra fat deposits that don’t respond to diet and exercise, you are most likely a great candidate. Typically, those who are a good candidate for liposuction if:

  • are over the age of 18

  • have a normal weight but have fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise

  • maintain a healthy lifestyle so the results are long lasting

  • are not looking to lose a lot of weight but rather take care of excess fat

 

About the Liposuction Procedure 

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that reshapes and contours the body by removing stubborn, often exercise-resistant fat deposits. The length and cost of liposuction surgery can vary from one to several hours, depending on surgical method, treatment area size, amount of fat being removed, and region where you receive the surgery. Possible side effects of liposuction can include swelling, bruising, numbness, discomfort, and mobility limitations. The best way to make sure you have all the right details about the procedure is to talk to Dr. Wilder about your Austin liposuction options.

Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size in men, flattening and enhancing the chest contours.

In severe cases of gynecomastia, the weight of excess breast tissue may cause the breasts to sag and stretch the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). In these cases the position and size of the areola can be surgically improved and excess skin may be reduced.

Plastic surgery to correct gynecomastia is technically called reduction mammaplasty.

What is gynecomastia?

Gynecomastia is a condition of overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men that can occur at any age. The condition can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity, obesity or the use of certain drugs.

Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair your self-confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition.

 

Gynecomastia is characterized by:

  • Excess localized fat

  • Excess glandular tissue development

  • Sometimes excess breast skin

  • Presence unilaterally (one breast) or bilaterally (both breasts)

Brachioplasty (Arm Lift) 

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:

  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward

  • Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm

  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Fluctuations in weight, growing older and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.

Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons)

 

Body Lift 

A body lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports skin and fat. Excess sagging skin and fat are removed and the procedure(s) can improve a dimpled, irregular skin surface.

A body lift may include these areas

  • Abdominal area - locally or extending around the sides and into the lower back area

  • Buttocks

  • Thigh - the inner, outer or posterior thigh, or the thigh's circumference

Aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight and genetic factors may contribute to poor tissue elasticity that can result in sagging of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

What a body lift can't do

Body lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. Liposuction alone can remove excess fat deposits where skin has good elasticity and is able to naturally conform to new body contours. In cases where skin elasticity is poor, body lift techniques along with liposuction may be recommended.
