What’s Hot in Body Contouring: Real Housewives Spill
Featuring jaw-dropping drama and over-the-top lifestyles, The Real Housewives franchise is among the most popular in reality TV. It’s no secret that many (if not most) of the Real Housewives cast members have had plastic surgery in some form, from liposuction to breast augmentation and buttock implants.
At Gotham Plastic Surgery in Manhattan, we want to make aesthetic goals attainable for anyone—female or male. Our unique NatraLook™ approach addresses both restorative and transformative changes, producing natural-looking results that boost your aesthetic confidence by enhancing your appearance.
Douglas Steinbrech, MD, FACS, Gotham’s renowned, board-certified expert in body contouring procedures, achieves world-class results for female and male patients alike.
Focus on the Tummy
The tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves the removal of excess fat and skin and the tightening of weakened abdominal muscles to flatten and shape a protruding abdomen and waist.
The procedure is beneficial for patients who have stretched skin and muscles due to pregnancy or considerable weight loss. Liposuction alone may be helpful for patients with only localized areas of fat and no excess skin.
Childbirth is one of the most meaningful experiences in a woman’s life. Even while enjoying motherhood, women often wish they could get their pre-pregnancy body back. After having children, women are often left with sagging breasts and enlarged areolas, less definition in the waistline, a sagging abdomen, and stretch marks.
Cosmetic surgery can help restore youthful contours to the breasts and abdomen – often at the same time. A combination of procedures often referred to as the “mommy makeover” adds procedures like a breast lift, breast reduction, and liposuction to the tummy tuck for a dramatic result.
Pregnancy leaves many women with stubborn fat pockets in the lower abdomen and decreased definition in the waistline. Women who’ve undergone a C-section often have an area of fat remaining above the surgical scar. In these cases, liposuction can help remove excess fat from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and waist. Liposuction can effectively remove fat deposits after pregnancy, or anytime you discover stubborn pockets of fat, for a sleeker shape.
Breasts and Backsides
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States—and certainly a favorite among The Real Housewives cast. This procedure places implants into the breast for a fuller, more shapely look.
Breast augmentation can be an excellent option for women dissatisfied with their breast size or those who’ve noticed changes in their breasts from breastfeeding, weight loss, pregnancy, or the aging process. For asymmetrical breasts, this procedure can help provide a balanced look.
Although breast augmentation will enhance the shape and size of the breasts, it can’t significantly lift drooping breasts. We frequently recommend a combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift to address this concern.
Our New York City plastic surgery clinic offers a variety of breast implant options, depending on a patient’s specific needs. Your procedure will be tailored to your particular desires and body proportions for a beautiful, natural result. Implants can be round or tear-shaped, and a variety of implant types are available.
The Brazilian butt lift has been a popular plastic surgery procedure since the early 2000s and was another favorite of The Real Housewives and other celebrities. However, the procedure has fallen out of favor in the last several years, with record lows in the number of procedures performed.
Dr. Steinbrech offers his exclusive procedure, BodyBanking®, a safe and effective technique that enhances specific areas of the body while reducing others. Since Dr. Steinbrech tailors BodyBanking to the patient’s needs and goals, the technique produces excellent results for any patient.
Liposuction to the Next Level
Liposuction can be ideal for body areas with stubborn fat deposits, including the abdomen, buttocks, chin, hips, knees, neck, thighs, upper arms, and waist.
Tumescent liposuction is a procedure that gently suctions out excess fat in predetermined areas using a cannula. While the procedure creates a slimmer and smoother appearance, there are limits on the effectiveness of fat removal in resculpting the body.
Liposuction alone can’t create fuller breasts or shapelier buttocks. Dr. Steinbrech has improved on the typical liposuction procedure by adding another step that sculpts and shapes the body.
BodyBanking® involves performing liposuction in designated areas and then injecting the removed fat into other areas of the body to achieve the desired results.
After deciding to have her breast implants removed, Emily Simpson of The Real Housewives of Atlanta underwent a fat transfer procedure to add fullness to her breasts. Another cast member used a similar procedure to enhance her buttocks.
Not Just for Housewives
Dr. Steinbrech is an internationally recognized expert in male plastic surgery. His proprietary BodyBanking® procedure also creates transformative results for his many male patients.
Men typically seek BodyBanking to eliminate fat from the abdomen or love handles and augment the glutes, pectorals, and biceps for a muscular, chiseled body appearance.
