How a Tummy Tuck Can Elevate Your Confidence

As much as we hate to admit, our external appearance is directly tied to our inner self-confidence. Whether you are navigating post-pregnancy weight loss or simply losing extra pounds, it often feels like you cannot achieve desired results. That is when the realization comes that you cannot diet or exercise away excess skin.

“People find they lose subcutaneous fat more easily in the upper body, while belly fat and skin remains,” says Dr. Davila, “a problem that only worsens through your 30’s, 40’s and beyond despite maintaining the same level of physical activity and dietary habits.”

If you are struggling with a similar issue, the silver lining is that ESANA has assisted numerous people in this situation. We understand you want to feel fantastic in whatever clothing you wish to wear, from normal every day outfits, athletic gear to swimwear.

Feeling good in your body again is possible! For many ESANA patients, a tummy tuck / abdominoplasty is a solution that has helped them regain that confidence and achieve their personal goals.

Abdominoplasty: The Details

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and can repair any muscle weakness. It works by contouring your mid-section to re-shape your abdominal wall. It is a procedure that requires general anesthesia and takes anywhere from one to three hours. Our surgeons will carefully remove excess skin and fat and repair any separated muscles, leaving you with a flatter stomach. Post-surgery, you will need to heed your surgeon’s instructions to ensure that the area heals appropriately. While it is a procedure that requires some downtime, the transformational results will make it worthwhile.

Many question whether they need a tummy tuck or if other treatment options like CoolSculpting or Evolve can help them reach their physique goals.

Every person is different and depending on a physical exam, our physicians can determine which treatments would be best. CoolSculpting or Evolve are skin toning and fat reduction treatments that require little to no downtime. While they are effective and incredible treatment options for some looking to improve targeted areas, those looking to shed excess skin may experience superior results from surgical removal performed during a tummy tuck.

Let’s get you on the road to loving your body again!

VI Peels: March into Spring with Your Best Skin

Did you know that many Americans are self-conscious when it comes to their skin? If your confidence is being shaken by undesirable changes in your skin complexion, you’re not alone.

By now, you are probably familiar with chemical peel renewal treatments that work to exfoliate the skin and produce a healthier, rejuvenated, younger-appearing complexion. However, some chemical peels can be harsh and result in a lot of downtime. Luckily, not all peels are the same! We’re pleased to share VI Peels with our Esana patients!

This non-invasive treatment is virtually painless, requires no skin preconditioning and minimal downtime. They also have vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin while the skin is exfoliating. These peels are practical, affordable, and are one of the safest and most effective chemical peels for a range of skin types.

Whether you suffer from acne, melasma, wrinkles from sun damage or aging, rosacea, skin pigmentation issues, or other common skin concerns, VI Peels could be the secret weapon that will have you finally showing off your skin, rather than hiding it.

Benefits

  • Restores a more even skin tone
  • Smooths away rough skin
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Features

  • Safe for all skin types
  • Medium-depth peel
  • Results within 7 days

The Magic of VI Peels for Facial Rejuvenation
If you’ve never had a chemical peel before, or if you’re a chemical peel aficionado looking to try a new, cutting-edge treatment option, VI Peels are one of the leading chemical peel treatment options for all ages.

The scientifically-engineered solution used for the VI Peel is made up of a distinctive blend of rich vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C and salicylic acid, that is unlike any other chemical peel formula. Our skilled aestheticians will apply the solution directly to the skin to treat skin safely while removing layers of skin virtually pain-free. The ultimate goal of the treatment is to restore youthful tone and texture on your face, neck, and chest without the need for an invasive procedure.

Typically, treatments last only 30-minutes and there’s minimal to no downtime after the procedure. You will experience the common post-chemical peel side effects like skin peeling, but it’s similar to experiencing the aftermath of a sunburn. You’ll feel refreshed in just a few days with profound results that will restore not only your skin health but your confidence as well.

If you’re noticing the effects of aging…
