Bordy

The appearance of our bodies look can influence how we feel about ourselves. Dr. Pedro Torminn believes that you should be proud of your body and confident in your appearance. With nearly two decades of experience in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Torminn has the talent and aesthetic eye to help you achieve the shapely, beautifully contoured body that you deserve.

 

Thigh Lift

 

Patients who have excess skin and fat in their thighs often find it difficult to tone this particular area of the body through traditional dieting and exercise. Often, a surgical procedure is necessary to achieve the desired results. Thigh lift combines the removal of excess skin and fat from the thighs, the tightening of underlying muscles, and the removal of fat through liposuction. The results of the procedure are often dramatic. Dr. Torminn possesses the skills and training necessary to help patients who have been unable to achieve sleek, smooth thighs through diet and exercise. To learn more about thigh lift surgery or any other procedure that Dr. Torminn offers, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.

 

Full and Mini Abdominoplasty

 

 

As we age, fluctuations in weight, childbirth, and disease can cause the abdominal region to retain pockets of fat and folds of loose, sagging skin.  Abdominoplasty, also known as a “tummy tuck,” is a cosmetic procedure that removes surface fat from the abdominal region to produce a trimmer, healthier looking physique.

To meet each patient’s cosmetic goals safely and effectively, Dr. Pedro Torminn offers both full and mini abdominoplasty. A full abdominoplasty involves the tightening of loose stomach muscles in addition to the removal of excess skin and fat. Dr. Torminn makes a thin incision along the bikini-line from hipbone to hipbone (please see photo) to access the tissue and muscles of the abdominal region.  Through this incision, he is able to remove excess tissue and perform liposuction to produce a smoother, trimmer abdomen.

 

A full abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure, and many patients do not require so drastic a procedure.  For these patients, Dr. Torminn offers the mini abdominoplasty, often known as a “mini tummy tuck,” that can be used to make relatively minor cosmetic enhancements.  The procedure is performed with techniques similar to the full abdominoplasty, but the incision that Dr. Torminn creates is smaller than the one placed in traditional abdominoplasty (please see photo).  Through this incision, Dr. Torminn is able to remove excess fat and tighten the abdominal muscles to create a flatter, better contoured stomach surface.

 

 

Liposuction

 

Liposuction removes unwanted fat from specific, targeted areas of the body. The procedure is one of the most common and effective ways of treating localized pockets of fat that are resistant to traditional dieting and exercise. During liposuction, Dr. Pedro Torminn uses an instrument called a cannula, a suction tube, to break down fatty tissue under the skin and suction it gently away from the body.

What distinguishes the procedure is that it can be used to target nearly every area in the body and can be combined with a number of cosmetic surgical procedures for more comprehensive results. Common locations for liposuction include the waistline, hips, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and the area under the chin and neck. Dr. Torminn can use one of several techniques to perform liposuction, depending on the area to be treated and the goals of the patient. These techniques include dry, wet, tumescent, super-wet, ultrasound-assisted, and power-assisted; Dr. Torminn will be glad to discuss each technique’s advantages and disadvantages with you during a consultation. During the procedure, fat may also be grafted to other areas of the body to achieve a more natural contour. Patients who are interested in liposuction are encouraged to contact Dr. Torminn directly.

 

Arm Lift

 

As we age, our skin begins to lose its natural elasticity.  This can be particularly apparent in the skin of the upper arms, which is especially vulnerable to the effects of aging, gravity, weight gain or loss, and illness.  Similar to a thigh lift, an arm lift is actually a combination of procedures which, in concert, can dramatically reshape the upper arms.

During the arm lift surgery, Dr. Torminn creates incisions along the undersides of the arms, removes excess fat and skin, and uses liposuction to target especially troublesome areas. To complete the procedure, Dr. Torminn tightens the remaining skin and muscle.  To learn more about this procedure or any other that our expert plastic surgeon offers at his office in Brazil, contact our practice to schedule a consultation.

 

Gynecomastia Surgery

 

Gynecomastia, a condition in which the male breast tissue becomes abnormally enlarged, affects millions of men worldwide.  Men who possess “male breasts” are often ridiculed from a young age and can be reluctant to show their bodies in public, making a simple trip to the beach difficult and even frightening.

Dr. Torminn can help men who have oversized breasts as a result of gynecomastia by performing a discreet, yet effective surgical procedure to reduce the size and prominence of the chest area.  The procedure is similar to breast reduction surgery.  Dr. Torminn removes excess skin and fat from the breast region, and the remaining tissue is trimmed and tightened. If necessary, the muscles underlying the skin are also tightened to give the chest a sleeker, more masculine appearance.  Dr. Torminn may also elect to utilize precision liposuction to further contour the region.

 

Brazilian Butt Lift (Fat Graft)

 

o help his patients achieve a firmer, rounder, more prominent behind, Dr. Pedro Torminn offers the Brazilian butt lift procedure.  The technique, developed and perfected by Brazilian plastic surgeons, is rooted in fat grafting. During the fat grafting procedure, Dr. Pedro Torminn extracts a patient’s own fat cells from regions such as the abdomen, thighs, back, and arms, purifies the extraction, and injects the fat into the tissue of the buttocks.  Because the procedure utilizes a patient’s own fat, there is no risk of rejection, which can occur with butt lift techniques that use artificial implants.

The Brazilian butt lift is currently considered to be the most effective method of enhancing the contours of the buttock region.  Aside from a small risk of fat reabsorption over time, which can necessitate a minor “touch up” procedure, there are nearly no detrimental side effects to the surgery.  To learn more about how Dr. Torminn can help you achieve a perkier, shapelier rear end, contact our office to schedule a consultation.

 

Body Lift

 

Often, as a result of rapid weight gain and loss, childbirth, or other environmental factors, patients can develop loose, sagging skin all over their bodies.  This excess skin is nearly impossible to eliminate through traditional means such as exercise and dieting.  Fortunately, Dr. Pedro Torminn can perform a body lift to rejuvenate the appearance of the entire body.

Body lift actually encompasses several procedures that are designed to tighten the skin and reshape specific regions of the body.  It can involve surgical fat and skin removal, skin tightening with lasers, and liposuction to remove lingering deposits of fat.

Although results are often dramatic and life-changing, it is important that you consult with Dr. Torminn regarding the numerous risks and benefits of the procedure before deciding if a body lift is right for you.
