Minimally invasive face and body surgery is an alternative to traditional excisional (cutting or removing tissue) plastic surgery for men and women who have loose skin and areas of stubborn fat. Diet and exercise alone may not be enough to eliminate this fat, and even if you stay committed to a healthy lifestyle, it could take years to achieve toned and flattering contours. Plastic surgery is often recommended to shape the body in these cases, but you may be able to achieve your goals without the scars and downtime of traditional techniques.
