Manhattan Plastic Surgeons Highlight Various Treatments for Summer-Ready Legs

Stafford R. Broumand, MD and Daniel Y. Maman, MD of 740 Aesthetics Discuss Popular Surgical and Nonsurgical Options That Can Improve the Appearance of the Legs in Time for Summer Activities

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 28, 2015) - With summer right around the corner, many people are making every effort to get their bodies in shape for beach trips, pool parties, weekends trips to the lake, and all other outdoor activities that the warm weather brings about, states Dr. Stafford R. Broumand, a board certified plastic surgeon in New York City. However, despite eating healthily and exercising regularly, he notes that some individuals may find fat buildups and/or loose, excess skin in certain regions of the body to be resistant to improvement.

"One of the most common areas that people often have difficulty tightening and toning by way of diet and exercise is the legs, particularly from the knees up to the sides of the hips," says Dr. Broumand. For individuals experiencing this issue, he and his colleague, Dr. Daniel Maman, offer several treatment options at their Manhattan-based practice, 740 Aesthetics. Included among these modalities are surgical and nonsurgical procedures that can effectively reduce stubborn pockets of fat as well as tighten and smooth skin on the legs for a firmer, more toned appearance.

According to Dr. Maman, surgical treatments for the legs include liposuction and thigh lift. He explains that liposuction can often be a great solution for people who have localized accumulations of excess fat on the inner/outer thighs, inside the knees, and/or on the outside of the hips (saddlebags). Thigh lift surgery, he continues, may be an excellent option for patients who have loose, excess skin on the inner and outer thighs, though this approach is typically reserved for those who have undergone massive weight loss. For individuals who have only mild to moderate amounts of fat buildup and/or sagging skin, Dr. Maman reveals that nonsurgical methods may be more appropriate.

Nonsurgical treatments for the legs include CoolScupting®, ThermiAesthetics™, and Ultherapy®, states Dr. Broumand. Using the CoolFit™ and CoolSmooth™ applicators, he explains that CoolSculpting® can be employed to freeze away localized fat pockets on the inner and outer thighs. ThermiAesthetics™ treatments such as ThermiTight™ and ThermiSmooth™ can tighten and smooth skin in the mid to upper regions of the thighs, he continues, and Ultherapy® can help tighten moderately sagging skin on the thighs via ultrasonic energy. As an added benefit, Dr. Broumand notes that these minimally and non-invasive treatments typically result in little to no downtime.

Regardless of the procedure utilized, the two New York City plastic surgeons say they take a holistic approach to treating the legs that can not only help improve their patients' outcomes, but also enhance their general well-being. "Ultimately," states Dr. Maman, "our goal is not simply get our patients' legs looking great for the summer, but rather to make a positive impact on their appearance, health, and overall wellness."
