Tummy Tuck — Lake Forest Abdominoplasty Surgery

It is important for patients to understand what can be helped and what cannot be helped with abdominoplasty, also known as the tummy tuck. The best way to get comprehensive answers about this surgical procedure is to have a personal evaluation by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Terrasse.


During a consultation, Dr. Terrasse will go over the benefits and limitations of the tummy tuck procedure.


The tummy tuck helps remove excess adipose (fatty) tissue and loose skin above the muscle layer. In addition, the surgery can tighten the abdominal muscles that may have separated or stretched during pregnancy. This technique helps improve the internal “girdle” that the abdominal muscles usually provides.


An abdominoplasty is a procedure for weight loss, but rather it is a very helpful technique for improving one’s appearance after a large amount of weight has been lost by diet and exercise or weight loss surgery. Once an individual’s weight is stable, then patients can proceed with an abdominoplasty, and the end result will be much better.

Voluma — Juvederm Dermal Fillers Lake Forest

Over time, the soft, but supportive, tissue beneath our skin starts to diminish. This can result in our skin looking saggy and hollowed out. Juvederm Voluma XC is a relatively new injectable dermal filler designed to return volume to the face in aesthetically pleasing ways and has grown in popularity thanks to its superior lifting capability. It is the first and only FDA-approved injectable gel to enhance the volume in the cheeks.


Voluma is a hyaluronic acid (HA) that has very low hydrophilic properties, which means that it has a very low rate of water-absorption. Because of this, the product will not expand after injection. This benefit takes the guesswork out of how much to use, allowing for precise, controlled results.


Whereas other HA fillers last for eight to twelve months, studies have shown that Voluma can last for two or more years. An added benefit is that the filler stimulates collagen to promote the body’s own natural rejuvenation process.


To learn more about Voluma, and other facial fillers and injectable treatments, contact the Lake Forest office of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Terrasse.

Body Lift — Terrasse Body-Contouring Procedures Lake Forest

Body Lift procedures are comprehensive surgeries that typically follow massive weight loss. After this degree of weight change, most individuals are left with a significant amount of loose, sagging skin throughout their body that can only be corrected with surgery.


The body lift combines several lifting techniques to remove excess skin and fat that would otherwise be unsightly and uncomfortable.


This procedure is customizable to fit the exact needs and preferences of the patient. In most cases, extra skin and soft tissue can be removed from the upper arms, chest and breast, abdomen, thighs, and buttock areas. Combination procedures are frequently appropriate and decided on by the patient and surgeon after an evaluation and thorough discussions on the risks and benefits. For the most complete results, a total body lift is often a possible option, though both the operation and the recovery can be longer and more involved.


Ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are seeking to remove excess drooping skin and who have been at a stable weight for a couple of years to allow time for their skin to accommodate to their new underlying figure.


For more details about body lifts, contact experienced and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Terrasse to schedule a consultation.

Juvederm — Soft-Tissue Wrinkle Filler Lake Forest

If wrinkles and other signs of aging have staked their claim in the skin of your face, Juvederm may be an ideal solution to restore that youthful appearance.


Juvederm is a soft-tissue dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural human compound. Because of this, Juvederm is extremely compatible with one’s facial tissues and will not lead to allergic reactions or other rejections around the injection sites.


In the hands of experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony Terrasse, and his caring staff, Juvederm products can be an effective tool for treating all kinds of facial aging. The hyaluronic acid can be utilized to act as a cushion to restore facial volume, as in Juvederm Ultra Plus, or it can be used to help fill in wrinkles, like with Juvederm XC. The products also have a “built-in” numbing effect because it contains a local anesthetic.


Regardless of the Juvederm filler that is chosen, you can expect several cosmetic benefits as a straight-forward office treatment. For example, the hyaluronic acid helps bring water to the surface, which helps maintain a hydrated and youthful look while stimulating collagen growth for long-lasting results.


To set up a consultation and find out more about Juvederm products, including Voluma for the cheekbone areas and temples, or other injectable options, contact our Lake Forest office today.
