What Exactly is Body Contouring?

Body contouring focuses on areas of the body (such as the abdomen or the back) that may give you a hard time when trying to smooth out folds and diminish fat deposits. Body contouring is often paired with other procedures to give optimal results. Our experienced surgeons will work closely with you to discuss your needs, as well as the many ways this procedure can be of benefit to you.

Getting the Look You Want with Body Contouring

Body contouring surgery can re-shape, tighten, and rejuvenate almost any area of the body, creating a newer, sleeker contour. In many cases, liposuction will be included during surgery. Common areas addressed include the neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, buttocks, knees, and thighs.

Body Contouring Procedure Details

All body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The duration of the surgery and the time spent in the hospital will depend on what surgery was performed, as well as how many were combined. 

During your initial consultation, the areas of the body that cause concern will be assessed, and a surgery plan will be discussed. Some procedures may be combined into one surgery.

For some individuals, in order to achieve the desired results, multiple surgeries may need to be staged over time.

Recovery from Body Contouring

While the recovery can be somewhat trying, the majority of patients feel that a new, tighter body is worth it. Patients will notice marked improvement with sagging features, as well as see a smoother skin appearance. Patients should adhere to a healthy lifestyle and limit sun exposure so the surgical results are not compromised.

Some body contouring procedures will result in scarring; however, your surgeon will make every effort possible to minimize these scars. In most cases, the scars will be hidden under bathing suits and within the natural folds of the skin. Some scarring may be evident, but these, like all scars, will lighten over time. Most patients feel the results of a body contouring procedure are worth it, and the scars become secondary.

FAQ

Is body contouring the same thing as a mommy makeover?

How many body contouring procedures can I have?

During the consultation, your surgeon will assess your overall physical health to determine what procedures should be performed, and how many in a single session. Depending how many body parts will be addressed — as well as the extent of the surgeries — certain procedures will be grouped together. In many cases, the upper body will be addressed in one surgery, and the lower in another. Staging the procedures helps reduce the risk of complications such as blood loss and infection, as well as minimizing the length of time it takes to recover.

Should I undergo body contouring after weight loss?

Body contouring is very common among weight loss patients. Most plastic surgeons will want you to be at, or as close to, your goal weight as possible. Patients who find it difficult to lose additional pounds because of loose and hanging skin can usually move forward with a skin reduction or body contouring procedure. This takes them over the “hump” and allows them to become more mobile, which helps lose the final pounds.

Is body contouring the same thing as a mommy makeover?

To some degree, yes. A mommy makeover simply groups together certain body contouring procedures to address the most common body parts affected by pregnancy. This usually entails the breasts, abdomen, hips, and buttocks. While body contouring itself can apply to many other areas on the body, a mommy makeover typically only addresses the areas affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing.
