Heartland Plastic Surgery offers many weight loss and fat reduction solutions:
Contrave is a prescription-only weight-loss medication. This FDA approved medication is designed to help people who are overweight or struggle with obesity lose weight by targeting two areas of the brain. One area that focuses on hunger and the second area that focuses on reward. This helps reduce hunger and helps fight cravings.
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure where a camera is used to add stitches to the stomach, making the stomach smaller. This limits the amount of food intake and can lead to significant weight loss.
Gastric Bypass Surgery is a weight loss surgery where changes are made to the stomach and small intestine to change the way the body processes food intake. This surgery makes patients feel full with less food. Also, since changes have been made to the digestive system, the body doesn’t absorb as many calories. This can lead to significant weight loss.
The Lap Band System is a safe, FDA approved tool where a band is placed around the stomach to reduce the amount of food intake. This minimally invasive procedure takes less than an hour and the recovery time is small.
The Orbera weight loss balloon is a safe, effective way to lose weight. This simple procedure takes less than 30 minutes and is non-surgical. The average person is shown to lose 3x more weight than with diet and exercise alone.
CoolSculpting is the World’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction procedure. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate unwanted fat cells without surgery or downtime. When the fat cells are frozen, they die. The body then naturally eliminates these frozen cells over a period of a few weeks to a few months. This procedure is FDA cleared as safe and effective.
Liposuction removes unwanted fat pockets and reshapes areas of the body. Liposuction can be used on many areas including abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, and more. The procedure is minimally invasive and most people are able to return to work within a few days.
A tummy tuck, also known as Abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that firms and smooths the abdomen by removing excess skin and fat. It may also tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. The result is a flatter, tighter abdominal profile.
