Torso Surgery Houston
Torso surgery involves a revision of previous procedures on the trunk that the patient perceives as inadequate for any of a number of reasons. The procedures typically include abdominoplasties, liposuction, body lifts, thigh or buttock lifts, and brachioplasties. Specific problems often are contour irregularities, poor scars, scars in poor sites or levels (usually too high or a strange design in an abdominoplasty), and asymmetry problems.
As with the initial consultation, Dr. Moliver will review the patient’s history and do a careful exam. In revision surgery, there is no substitute for experience. Sometimes the problems can be easily repaired. Sometimes the prudent approach may include a period of time be allowed to transpire to allow the tissues to recover from the prior surgery.
In the past few years, we have seen an explosion of physicians offering cosmetic surgery and less invasive cosmetic procedures. In many cases these physicians are either inexperienced or simply do not have the adequate training. As with all surgery, we encourage our patients to seek out well trained surgeons with years of experience who are willing to share numerous before and after pictures and even connect you with prior satisfied patients should that be something you desire.
