At Capek Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of body procedures to help with various aesthetic and cosmetic concerns. From your arms to your lower body, Dr. Lucie Capek can help you achieve your body goals. Check out our service offerings below.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
During a tummy tuck, Dr. Capek will surgically remove excess skin and fat from your belly. In most patients, she will also tighten and realign your abdominal muscles and relocate or reshape your belly button. This procedure helps firm up and tighten the abdomen, for a much better fit in your clothing and a more youthful appearance. Dr. Capek offers several types of tummy tucks and will help you select the optimal procedure for your needs and goals. Options include traditional, umbilical float, mini, and corset tummy tucks. During all procedures, she will use the state-of-the-art HARMONIC® scalpel for faster healing and additional local anesthesia to lessen discomfort.LEARN MORE
Sagging skin on the upper arms is most severe after major weight loss but some people notice these changes as a sign of aging as well. Although an arm lift (brachioplasty) addresses a relatively small area of your body, the procedure can make a major difference in the fit of your clothes and your confidence. For minor changes and excess fat, SmartLipo Precision Tx may be helpful. But if your arms have more significant hanging skin, Dr. Capek may recommend surgically removing it through an incision along the inner part of your arm, in combination with liposuction to reduce any excess fat. Your arm contour is dramatically improved and the scars fade significantly over time.LEARN MORE
Body Lift Procedures
Dr. Capek offers body lift procedures most often for patients who have lost a large amount of weight. Surgical options include a bra-line back lift and lower body lifts, sometimes referred to as belt-lipectomy and usually including a tummy tuck. Combination procedures, that include breast surgery, arm or thigh lifts, are sometimes added for a more comprehensive post Massive Weight Loss Makeover. These procedures can dramatically enhance your overall figure and are especially beneficial if you have undergone major weight loss or just seen the effects of aging. Body lifts can tighten or eliminate stretched skin and remove excess fat resulting in a better proportioned and smoother figure. During all procedures, Dr. Capek will use the state-of-the-art HARMONIC® scalpel for faster healing and to lessen discomfort.LEARN MORE
Labiaplasty surgery refers to reshaping the vulva, which includes the labia (outer and inner lips around the vagina). This procedure has become increasingly popular over the last few years as women are able to use the internet to become more informed about this very personal area of their bodies. Many factors can contribute to a woman having concerns about the appearance of, or functional problems with, her genital area. Addressing these concerns in the privacy of our QuadA-accredited operating suite, Capek Surgical Arts, can resolve these issues permanently. Our patients are extremely satisfied with this procedure and it is typically done under minor oral sedation and local anesthesia.LEARN MORE
Liposuction is one of the most popular forms of body contouring. Dr. Capek typically uses ‘energy-assisted’ liposuction to gently emulsify and suction out unwanted fat cells that do not respond to diet and exercise. This includes advanced and innovative types of liposuction, such as VASER® LipoSelection, which uses ultrasonic waves, and SmartLipo™, which uses laser energy. Both techniques are gentler than regular liposuction and also heat the surrounding tissues, helping to tighten overlying skin. The doctor also uses power-assisted liposuction (PAL) in combination with energy-assisted liposuction, to remove stubborn fat cells with more precise and efficiency.LEARN MORE
After having children, you may find that you simply cannot regain your pre-baby figure. Although you are at a healthy weight and you exercise regularly, you still have sagging skin around your stomach. Your breasts have lost their youthful fullness. Does this sound familiar? If so, a Mommy Makeover may be the solution. Two or more procedures can be combined to help achieve your goals and restore your pre-pregnancy body. Options include tummy tuck, breast lift, breast augmentation, breast reduction, liposuction, labial reduction and more. A consultation with Dr. Capek will ensure a surgical plan that best fits your needs.LEARN MORE
A thigh lift is a surgical option that can remove both excess fat and skin from around your thighs, especially in areas where diet and exercise may have failed. This procedure can be used in conjunction with liposuction to help shape and contour your thigh. There are several different options for a thigh lift, depending on your goals and how much extra skin or fat you have. It can also be combined with a lower body lift to achieve your ideal contours.LEARN MORE
