Body Plastic Surgery In San Francisco

If you have tried altering your exercise and diet routines, but are still not achieving the shape you desire, a surgical option may be the right step for you.*

Many individuals who have lost a large amount of weight due to gastric bypass, weight reduction surgery, or on their own through diet and exercise may experience loose, sagging, excess skin around their arms, abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks areas. It is not uncommon to feel “stress” once achieving your weight loss goals as our body is going through the natural process of losing skin elasticity.*

San Francisco plastic surgeon and body specialist Dr Javaheri is an expert in determining the right procedure for you. He combines surgical skill, experience, and balances patient expectation with the realities of the patient’s anatomy. The results can be a significant improvement in not only a person’s shape but a boost to one’s self-esteem.*

Each individual procedure has it’s own merit and advantages. Below are the different approaches for the different areas of the body.

Liposuction: Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty or lipectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that can help sculpt and refine the body by diminishing unwanted fat from targeted areas. These areas include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.*

Tummy Tuck: Commonly known as a “tummy tuck”, abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure to drastically reduce excess skin and fat from the lower and middle abdomen, and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.*

Body Lifts: Many individuals who have lost a large amount of weight due to gastric bypass, weight reduction surgery, or on their own through diet and exercise may experience loose, sagging, or excess skin around their arms, abdomen, thighs, hips and buttocks areas.*

Buttock Lift: For most patients, a buttock augmentation, also known as gluteoplasty, can add increased volume and fullness to underdeveloped areas of the buttock, resulting in improved overall appearance and self-confidence.*

Thigh Lift: The thigh lift procedure reshapes the thighs by reducing the excess skin and fat that have been affected due to weight loss. The result is smoother skin and a better-proportioned contour of the thighs.*

Arm Lift: An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes the under portion of the upper arm, from the underarm region to the elbow. If the underside of your upper arms are sagging, droopy or appear loose due to excess skin, an arm lift may be right for you.*

Buttock Augmentation: Buttock augmentation, also known as gluteaplasty, is designed not only to increase the size of the buttock, but also to improve the shape and contour of the buttock.*

Fat Transfer: As one grows older, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and the general everyday stresses of life begin to affect the overall appearance of one’s face resulting laugh lines, smile lines, crow’s feet or facial creases over the areas where facial muscle movement occurs.*

Mommy Makeover: The Mommy Makeover procedure has gained in popularity over the last decade. The reason: women want to regain what’s been lost due to the aftermath of pregnancy, gravity, and the natural aging process on a woman’s body.*

Bariatrics: Morbid obesity is now recognized by the general population, as a contributor of many health problems, including heart disease, vascular diseases, venous inefficiencies, diabetes mellitus, hypertension (high blood pressure), skin conditions, and more.*

Labiaplasty: Labiaplasty refers to a procedure to enhance, reduce and/or reshape the size of the labia minora. There are a variety of causes, including damage caused to the labia during childbirth, pain/discomfort, aging process, genetics, or aesthetics.*

Pectoral / Bicep / Tricep Implants: Pectoral implants, bicep, and tricep implants are commonly used to enhance, and in some cases provide, natural body curvatures and muscles. They are designed to make the muscles of the arms, and chest “bulkier”.*

    “I have had 3 procedures so far with Dr. Javaheri, they are: tummy tuck with lower body lift, arms & breast reduction , and legs & gluteus maximus lift. My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
