Invest in Yourself This New Year

Happy New Year! It’s time to invest in yourself and make your health, wellness, and weight loss resolutions. If this is the year you want to be healthier, feel stronger, and be more confident, we can help! With our targeted approach to weight loss and body contouring treatments, you have access to an extensive menu of solutions.

You’ll find weight loss options, including Obera, ESG, TORe, and semaglutide. Once you reach your goal weight, a body contouring treatment, such as a tummy tuck, breast lift, arm lift, and thigh lift, can naturally complement your results. Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect.

Weight Loss

If diet and exercise have left you frustrated each time you step on the scale, these weight loss treatments may be just what you’re looking for.

Orbera is a weight loss balloon that helps patients eat less. It’s a safe, minimally invasive, non-permanent, incision-free weight-loss balloon and program that includes support.

Endoscopic Suture Gastroplasty (ESG) is also minimally invasive. We take a normal, large, stretchy stomach and tighten it into a narrow sleeve shape so patients eat less to feel satisfied. ESG also comes with aftercare support.

Transoral Outlet Reduction (TORe) is a minimally invasive procedure for patients who regain weight after gastric bypass surgery. Patients who have this procedure report feeling full earlier when eating and may lose weight and maintain their weight loss years after surgery.

Semaglutide suppresses your appetite, increases your energy levels, and helps you lose weight. It’s FDA-approved and safe to use.

Body Contouring

After you reach your weight loss goal, you may find your skin and tissues lack the elasticity to conform to your healthier, reduced body size. With surgical body contouring after significant weight loss, our surgeons remove excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of your underlying support tissue.

The result? You look better and more proportioned, and your contours are smoother. Procedures include:

  • Tummy tuck to correct the apron of excess skin that hangs over your abdomen.
  • Breast lift to correct sagging or flattened breasts.
  • Arm lift to correct the sagging of your upper arms.
  • Medial thigh lift to correct the sagging of your inner thigh.
  • Lower body lift to correct sagging of your abdomen, buttocks, and inner, and outer thighs.

Real Patients. Real Results.

Our 48-year-old patient says her procedures (Orbera, tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift) got her just where she wanted to be. It was instant gratification!

Explain your journey:

Ali H: I originally visited the office for a breast augmentation consult and saw the Orbera marketing in the lobby. I’ve had five children and have been struggling with weight loss, especially because of perimenopause, so I asked about Orbera. At that point, we created a whole treatment plan to meet all my goals.

I had my Orbera balloon placed in September 2021, and they removed it in June 2022. I lost about 25 pounds. Unfortunately, I found out some time later that I had cancer and needed surgery, so I waited to have a tummy tuck and breast augmentation until October of this year.

How were the treatments?

Ali H: Orbera was pretty tough in the beginning, but after that it was okay. My surgeries were a piece of cake. I was back at work in four days, and I never really had too much pain. I did get some things to help me be comfortable after surgery, including a shower chair, a recliner, and a bar to help me roll over in bed. I was back doing all my regular activities within three weeks.

When did you notice a change?

Ali H: With Orbera, I noticed my weight loss over time. Visually, after my surgeries, the difference was immediate! After about a week and a half, my clothes didn’t fit, so I raided my daughter’s closet for her size 0 jeans.

Are you happy with your results?

Ali H: I am super happy! It was a real confidence booster, and I can’t wait for swim season. I look great and feel great! Jeans shopping is also really fun right now. The best part is my husband and I are like newlyweds and can’t keep our hands off each other!

Do you have advice for people considering any of these procedures?

Ali H: Don’t put it off. I really wish I had done it a long time ago. Invest in yourself. Losing weight as we age is more challenging, especially in our tummy area. Also, if the cost is too much, check out their Care Credit options for monthly payment options. In addition, prepare for surgery and make sure you have the tools and support you need. Focus on yourself and your recovery.

Plastic surgery involves many choices – the most important is selecting a surgeon you can trust. Expect exceptional results when your procedures are performed by plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, like Dr. Sprole and Dr. Spaniol. These specially trained doctors have at least six years of surgical training and experience, with a minimum of three years of plastic surgery.
