Tummy Tuck in Orange County
Excess skin, stubborn pockets of fat, and separated abdominal muscles are extremely frustrating and can occur for more reasons than just age. Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and hormonal changes all play a role in creating what many patients deem a “flabby” midsection. Abdominoplasty, or a tummy tuck, is a transformative procedure that removes sagging skin, tightens the abdominal wall, and establishes a smooth, more contoured midsection.
Despite our best efforts, our bodies can store fat in frustrating ways. When diet and exercise are not enough, liposuction can seem a miraculous solution to unwanted pockets of fat. Dr. Wald can permanently remove localized fat pockets on the body, neck, or face, sculpting a smoother contour for slimming, satisfying results.
Pregnancy and childbirth are indeed a gift, but they often adversely affect a woman’s body. A Mommy Makeover is a revolutionary procedure combining different cosmetic surgeries designed to address areas of a woman’s body most affected by pregnancy or the natural aging process. Many women choose abdominoplasty, liposuction, and cosmetic breast surgery. Dr. Wald will help patients customize their procedures to fit their unique needs.
For many patients, plastic surgery after massive weight loss, or post-bariatric surgery, is the last step before reaching their aesthetic goals. Patients who have undergone massive weight loss have achieved a momentous feat, yet many then experience sagging, loose skin that has not accommodated their new body. Post-bariatric procedures remove excess skin and create a more pleasing contour to multiple body areas, revealing the newly leaner, toned physique.
Endoscopic Plastic Surgery
Endoscopic surgery is a widespread practice in medicine, but it has only recently been utilized in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Using an endoscope for cosmetic procedures allows Dr. Wald to create smaller incisions for a less invasive operation and a more comfortable recovery period.
Male Body Procedures
Cosmetic surgery is not just for women—men also have specific goals and ideals for their bodies. Dr. Wald understands the value of tailoring cosmetic procedures to suit masculine aesthetics and anatomy. From abdominoplasty that creates a sculpted midsection to calf and pectoral implants, Dr. Wald offers a wide range of male body contouring procedures that enhance the male physique.
Skin cancer is incredibly common, especially for patients who live in places with a large amount of sun exposure, such as Orange County. It most commonly affects the neck, face, or head, surface areas that are much harder to conceal. Dr. Wald offers a range of skin cancer treatments and reconstructive procedures to restore the appearance of areas affected by various forms of skin cancer to promote overall wellness and a restored aesthetic.
There are some surgical cases in which the patient does not have enough excess skin to hold an implant or perform the procedure. This is most common in breast reconstruction procedures, during which the patient has had breast tissue removed during a mastectomy. Tissue expansion allows for the gradual stretching and growth of the patient’s skin to prepare them for surgery. This technique makes it possible for more people to benefit from cosmetic and reconstructive procedures that they otherwise would be unable to have.
