Body contouring is a term used to describe procedures that will enhance your silhouette by removing excess skin and tissue after weight loss. Whether you have undergone weight loss surgery or experienced significant weight changes due to pregnancy or lifestyle modification, body contouring is an excellent tool to help provide a better proportion to your frame. Oftentimes the skin has lost its elasticity, and despite how hard you work at improving it, loose tissue will remain. This may, in turn, prevent you from having the confidence and ability to wear the clothes that you want to. Body contouring can also fine-tune your results for those already in relatively good shape, helping you to attain a slimmer and more toned physique.
Before you begin the process of contouring your body, it is very important that you have achieved and are able to maintain your weight loss goals. Major fluctuations in weight can affect your final outcome.
There are several types of body contouring procedures that are both surgical and non-surgical. In general, non-surgical options offer modest improvements with little to no downtime. Surgical enhancements will provide you with more dramatic results; downtime varies depending on your needs and choice of procedure.
What Procedures Are Part Of a Body Contouring?
Some body contouring procedures include:
- Tummy tuck
- Breast lift
- Buttocks lift
- Arm lift
- Body lift
- Thigh lift
Body contouring procedures may be performed at one time or over the course of time in order to meet your overall surgical plan. In most cases, there may be several procedures before your body contouring is complete.
Our plastic surgeons at Cold Spring Plastic Surgery will develop a customized treatment plan that will help you meet your goals for your body.
