Liposuction or Abdominoplasty? How to Decide?

Posted on: 7 Comments

Sometimes exercise and weight control are not enough to achieve a flat and well-toned abdomen.  Even individuals with normal body weight can develop an abdomen that is sagging or protrudes.  The causes of these symptoms vary including pregnancy, aging, fluctuations in weight, or heredity.

Objective: Tummy Tuck is a surgical procedure to correct the apron of excess skin hanging over your abdomen.  Abdominoplasty surgery removes excess skin, wrinkles and fat, and tightens the underlying bulging muscles to reshape and smooth out the abdomen.  Abdominoplasty restores weakened or separated muscles creating a smoother, flatter and firmer abdomen.

 If you feel young but your face is telling a different story, then a “Facelift out of a Bottle” using Juvéderm, Radiesse and Botox will amaze you.  Refresh, lift, tone and brighten your appearance while you maintain your personal identity.  Why not look on the outside how you feel on the inside?

Fillers have revolutionized facial contouring with little or no downtime.  Juvéderm and Radiesse are synthesized products that plump up, support and reshape the face, lasting from several months to over a year.  The results can be so remarkable that Dr. Rosenthal refers to his procedure as “a liquid face lift”.  While Juvéderm smoothes out lip lines and restores lost volume around the mouth, Radiesse restores or improves the cheek bones and arch to lift, smooth and contour hollow areas. The combination of Radiesse and Juvéderm is a perfect match for non-surgical facial rejuvenation and enhancement.

Botox is another wonderful non-invasive rejuvenating procedure that is used to create a “pretty” and relaxed upper forehead. Dr. Rosenthal can transform a tense and wrinkled forehead into a smoother and attractive one.  He accomplishes this by balancing the many muscles in the upper face rather than leaving you with a frozen appearance.  This creates a rested and tension-free appearance.

Be confident and comfortable with yourself.  Even though beauty starts from within, let Dr. Rosenthal and his caring staff help you care for the outside.

Woman Magazine asks our local professionals….

Why is it you just cannot lose those bothersome inches from your hips, thighs and buttocks?  Genetics confounds your every attempt, leaving you frustrated and angry.  We are not talking about ten, twenty or more pounds equally distributed, which can be managed by a good exercise program and eating style.  Enter liposuction, stage right!


Liposuction is a technique that sculpts away fat cells using a thin tube, called a canula, attached to a vacuum device.  Under a good surgeon’s hand, it reshapes bulges to gentle curves.  Fat cells are whisked away by suction, never to return.  Remaining fat cells can get bigger or smaller, like a balloon inflating or deflating, but there are fewer cells to blow up.


So imagine a process that allows you to fit into smaller jeans or wear the same sizes of a two piece bathing suit by altering your contours.  It is not a weight reduction method and the final results do take a bit of patience, but the end result is well worth its weight in….!

Your Greatest Investment is in Yourself

The Best Reason to Have a Consultation with Dr. Rosenthal

Challenging times have been with us since man stood upright. Attitude is a large component of how we deal with our life adventures. I suppose we can choose to bury our heads until the dust settles, or we can look beyond the mist to gaze upon the beautiful and vibrant sunrise.

Cosmetic Procedures are perhaps one of your finest investments. Why is this so? Like a fine tuned watch our faces and bodies gradually unwind. Time does not stop all at once, but rather is a gradual alteration in how we look to ourselves and how others view us. Recently, a patient noted that her facelift was such a superb way to invest in her future. Her daily looks in the mirror were proof enough that investing in one’s health is the gift that keeps giving no matter how the economy sways with the wind. The experience not only lifted her appearance but buoyed her self confidence. What else could yield such an enormous return?

Do not halt your exercise program or eating in a healthy manner. Of course we might choose to substitute types of
exercise and look for food that is seasonal to be momentary wise. When dealing with your facial and bodily appearance, it isn’t worthy to seek out the lowest common denominator. You and Dr. Rosenthal desire an optimal outcome that requires attention to every detail, diligent planning and analysis of your personal needs to engender results that all will be proud to gaze upon.

Mini-face lifts are not geared to most individuals but rather are more of a quick turnover technique that never quite approaches a look that is natural and healthy. Likewise, substituting an incorrect approach to eyelid and brow rejuvenation leads to a less than optimal look. We do have temporizing products that will smooth out and replace lost facial volume: Juvéderm, Restylane and Botox. These products can and do enhance your appearance with or without additional cosmetic surgery. But when surgery is indicated there just is no substitution for the real item.

There are many ways to lift breasts that have succumbed to gravity or to reshape and augment those breasts that started out to be a bit less endowed than desired. Tummies can be sculpted and smoothed. But like facial and lid surgery there is no substitution for artistry and the wherewithal to reshape one’s body with a gentle strong guiding hand or to choose from the multitude of procedures a recontouring procedure just for your needs.

There are fast foods, and then there are meals that one saviors the breath of your conscious memories. Likewise, there
are procedures that are quick fixes that are either short-lived in their lasting powers or so minimal that a natural, healthy
and pretty appearance is never achieved. When you put your confidence and trust in Dr. Rosenthal’s hands it is taken with the utmost of responsibility to achieve results that are justifiable of your faith.

The surgery does not start in the operating room, but rather during the first consultation. Now is the time for us to share expectations and for you to learn about both the options and the benefits of each procedure. Having 24 years experience
as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Rosenthal has the opportunity to select alternatives that will yield satisfying results for his patients. Dr. Rosenthal’s surgeries are choreographed like the finest ballet to assure your safety and an outcome that is pleasing to the eye. This requires an enormous amount of energy to care for you from the beginning to
the final moments of healing.

Consultations are where it all starts, but it does not end until Dr. Rosenthal is personally pleased with your results. Not
only is the entire consult time spent with Dr. Rosenthal, but he personally attends to your needs during and after surgery. His interest and concern for your welfare is tantamount to a solid investment that continues to yield interest and pleasure.

Be good to yourself and others will follow suit.
