What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring may include a number of different procedures, which work together to remove excess, sagging skin from multiple areas of the body. Typically, patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with loose skin can really benefit from this procedure. Some of the body contouring procedures we employ include mastopexy (breast lift), abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), lower body lift, thigh lift and liposuction.

How is Body Contouring Performed?
Body contouring procedures may vary depending on the patient’s goals. Some of the surgeries that may be combined include a breast lift, tummy tuck, lower body lift, thigh lift, or any other combination of surgeries. Your surgeon will begin with an incision in the treatment area to remove excess skin. The length and pattern of the incision will vary, depending on the location and amount of excess skin to be removed. Your surgeon will make every effort to reduce the appearance of scars.
Our experienced surgeons find that the Smart Lipo procedure can be an extremely powerful tool for body contouring. This allows them to effectively dissolve unwanted fat from many areas on the body. Please take this opportunity to read our Smart Lipo page for further information.
Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
If you are self-conscious about the excess, sagging skin that remains following weight loss or due to age/gravity, you may be a good candidate for body contouring. However, you may not be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you are diabetic, a smoker, if you have poor circulation, or if you still have a lot of weight to lose. Your surgeon will discuss your medical history and all of your goals during your initial consultation.
What Kind of Post-Operative Body Contouring Care Can I Expect?
Recovery time will vary with each patient, depending on the number of body contouring procedures performed. If you’ve had several surgeries at once, it may take up to six weeks before you can get back to normal activities. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medications to ease any pain, and he will give you specific instructions based upon which procedures you underwent. And as with any major surgery, you should refrain from any strenuous activities.
What are the Typical Results of Body Contouring?
To see the full benefits of your body contouring procedures, it may take several months before all the swelling subsides. However, once healing is complete, you will see major differences in the contours of your body. Without all the excess skin, you’ll be able to show off your smoother, sexier body with confidence. To see the results for yourself, browse a variety of body contouring before and after pictures.
Body contouring procedures may leave some visible scars, but your surgeon will make every effort to hide them. And as long as you maintain a stable weight, your body contouring results will be long-lasting
What are Body Contouring Costs?
Body contouring costs are dependent upon the patient, as this is a highly individualized surgery. Once you have discussed all of your goals with your surgeon, he will be able to come up with an accurate estimate for you. Please give us a call today to schedule your complimentary consultation.
