If you’ve experienced major weight loss resulting in loose and sagging skin, body contouring or body sculpting surgery can be the next rewarding phase in your challenge to have a healthier, more proportioned body.
Body contouring procedures can help shape, firm and tighten your arms, stomach, back, butt and face. From surgical procedures like the thigh lift, arm lift and bra-line back lift, to non-invasive body contouring procedures such as Thermage, you have a number of treatment options available.
The success of body contouring, whether it is done to reduce, enlarge or lift, is influenced by your age and by the size, shape and skin tone of the area to be treated. Some contouring procedures leave only small, inconspicuous scars. More noticeable scars may result when surgical removal of fat and skin is necessary to achieve your desired result. Most patients find these scars acceptable and enjoy greater self-confidence when wearing a bathing suit or form-fitting clothes.
Body contouring goals may be achieved in one surgical session or may be more safely performed in stages depending on your overall health, the type and extent of procedures being considered along with the outcome from discussions and recommendations by your plastic surgeon during the consultation process.
