Woman with hand on her rearYou may think of plastic surgery as an option for older patients. It is true that cosmetic treatments can reverse the signs of aging and give individuals a more youthful look. Still, if you are in your 30s, you may benefit from plastic surgery, as well. At this age, your metabolism has started to slow. Despite a healthy diet and exercise, you may struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. Dr. Yee can remove these areas with body contouring procedures. She also offers highly effective post-weight loss surgeries, facial plastic surgery, and cosmetic options for men. Dr. Yee will schedule your complete consultation, during which she can help you choose the right treatments for you.

Minimally Invasive Procedures for a Toned Appearance

Liposuction and CoolSculpting® can eliminate excess fat with no need for invasive surgery. These treatments will not help you lose weight. Nevertheless, they can be good options if you are at a healthy size, but you are troubled by isolated areas of fat. Common treatment areas for patients in their 30s include the stomach, hips, rear, and upper back.

Dr. Yee proudly uses several advanced methods of liposuction. With LipoSelection by VASER®, she will use ultrasound waves to break apart fat cells. Then she will suction out these cells through tiny incisions. SmartLipo is laser-assisted liposuction. Not only will this procedure eliminate excess fat. It will also smooth and tighten your skin. Additionally, Dr. Yee is one of only 12 U.S. surgeons offering VASER® Hi DefTM, specially designed to reveal and enhance muscle structure.

CoolSculpting® uses a freezing technique to eliminate excess fat. Once frozen, the cells will die. Then your body can absorb them and flush them out. CoolSculpting® results are not as dramatic as those from liposuction. However, if you have smaller pockets of fat, and you want a procedure with virtually no recovery, this may be the option for you.

Body Contouring following Weight Loss

If you have lost a large amount of weight in your 30s, you have demonstrated commitment to your health and quality of life. At your healthier size, you can look forward to a full, active life for decades. Sadly, however, your body may not fully reveal your progress. You may have damaged, sagging skin that still makes you look like you are overweight. Dr. Yee offers many types of body contouring, including:

  • Tummy tucks
  • Arm lifts
  • Thigh Lifts
  • Full body lifts

During these surgeries, she will excise damaged skin and raise sagging muscles to reveal your young, healthy figure.

Maintain Your Youthful Appearance with Facial Procedures

In your 30s, you have probably not developed dramatic wrinkles or other signs of aging. Nevertheless, Dr. Yee offers several options to rejuvenate your skin and enhance your facial contours. Treatments can include:

  • Rhinoplasty
  • Lip augmentation
  • Facial implants
  • Non-invasive skin tightening
  • Laser treatments
  • Anti-aging products

Cosmetic Surgery for Men in Their 30s

While many of the procedures described above are more common among women, men can also benefit greatly from plastic surgery. If you have undergone massive weight loss, or if you are simply looking to enhance your appearance, Dr. Yee can help you choose a suitable treatment. In addition to those described above, she also offers treatment for gynecomastia. If you have developed male breasts, she can perform liposuction or an excision surgery to remove excess tissue and improve your self-esteem.
