If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your body, we can help. A variety of body contouring techniques can be used to sculpt and reshape the body, removing loose sagging skin and pockets of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Body contouring encompasses a wide range of plastic surgery procedures designed to create a person’s ideal body and appearance.
Popular Body Contouring Techniques
If you have had a baby, or if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight, you may want to consider a tummy tuck. A tummy tuck is a major surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from your middle and lower abdomen, and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. If you are having the procedure to address body changes resulting from pregnancy, you should wait until you are done having children to have the procedure. If you are having the procedure due to significant weight loss, wait until you are done losing weight. Otherwise, the work you have done during the procedure will be undone when your abdomen stretches again.
After losing a significant amount of weight, you may have sagging breasts or flaps of excess skin on your abdomen, thighs, back, buttocks or arms. Even though you have put in the effort to lose the weight, it is unlikely that you will be satisfied with the way you look. Body lift surgery can help. It can be performed on these areas of the body where you have excess skin and fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Your body lift surgery may include a tummy tuck, a breast lift, a thigh lift, an arm lift or a lower body lift.
Among the many body contouring procedures, liposuction is the most popular of all. Liposuction can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, back, chin, cheeks and neck. Liposuction can remove stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to traditional weight loss methods. Keep in mind that liposuction removes fat, not skin, and the more fat you have removed, the more excess skin you’ll likely have. Some individuals choose to undergo a skin tightening procedure following liposuction.
