The NuBody Experience 22

NuBody Concepts brings innovative plastic surgery to Middle Tennessee.

Who hasn’t felt frustrated with their love handles, muffin tops, saddlebags, bra bulges, male breasts, or any other body part where the curves aren’t right or the skin is saggy? When it comes to our appearance, we are often our own worst critics.

While true beauty lies inside of us, it is a fact that when we look better, we feel better. And this added confidence goes a long way toward making us enjoy life and become better people.

No one understands this better than the staff of doctors, nurses, and aestheticians at NuBody Concepts, a Brentwood plastic surgery practice that has been helping women and men gain more confidence in themselves with a range of custom-tailored body contouring services.

“I will debate with anyone that when we feel good about ourselves and our bodies, we are happier,” says Dr. Joseph Greco III, Chief Medical Officer at NuBody Concepts. “What we do puts smiles on people’s faces and makes their lives more fulfilling.”

So how do you go about finding the happiness that comes with a better body?

There are many ways you can enhance your contours, from non-invasive treatments such as Botox and Juvederm injections against wrinkles, all the way to advanced plastic surgery like breast augmentations and tummy tucks.

The sweet spot, as evidenced by the most popular procedures at NuBody Concepts, may very well be in the middle: minimally-invasive procedures such as liposuction and non-surgical facelifts that don’t involve a scalpel or the cutting of skin, but are much faster and more effective than non-invasive methods like fat freezing that often need a series of repeat appointments.

It is often the first step in your body-contouring journey that is the hardest. Take Amanda, who recently had a liposuction procedure at NuBody Concepts.

“I was not happy with the extra weight I was carrying in my midsection,” says Amanda. “It made me feel frumpy and uncomfortable in my clothes, especially my jeans.”

Many women – and men – feel this way. They are frustrated when they hit a diet and exercise “plateau” where nothing they do seems to help them slim down. They look in the mirror and are unhappy with what they see. And yet they hesitate to visit a cosmetic surgeon – because they fear the idea of surgery, worry about taking time off work, or don’t believe they will see results. They are also often busy taking care of everyone else; putting their own needs and wants on the backburner.

What changed Amanda’s mind was hearing Kelly Ford of Nash FM talk about the success she had had with Aqualipo, a procedure combining water-based and laser liposuction. Dr. Emerson pioneered the procedure in Tennessee and has performed more liposuction procedures than any other doctor in the state. “I called that day,” Amanda recalls, and now wonders what took her so long. It was so much easier than she imagined.

“I literally went in on my lunch break and two hours later I had a flat stomach!”

Easing patient concerns and making them feel comfortable is a big part of the job for the NuBody staff. From the moment a customer enters the premises at the corner of Old Hickory and Granny White in Brentwood, they are made to feel at home. “It’s as if you’re getting a spa treatment and not so much like a doctor’s visit,” says Andrea Bernard, who as a medical consultant is the first to meet with prospective patients for their consultation. One of the biggest concerns patients have, she explains, is their fear of general anesthesia, and she is always happy to soothe their fears right off the bat. All procedures at NuBody Concepts are performed while the patient is awake using IV Sedation, which is very safe and also helps with a quick recovery.

What patients love most about NuBody Concepts is the intimate, family oriented environment. The nurses are friendly, the doctors joke with you throughout your procedure, and the office bulletin board is covered with postcards and pictures sent by patients who want to share their new look with the staff.

“We can always tell a patient is jubilant with her results when bikini lines are clearly visible,” says Dr. Greco.

It’s the time of year again when we are gearing up for swimsuit season. Whether you’ll wear a bikini or not, you might want to check out NuBody Concepts to find out how they can help you head into your summer vacation full of new confidence.
