What does body contouring typically involve?
Body contouring involves procedures that are done to sculpt and tone the body by removing excess skin and fat in specific areas. The procedures selected will depend on the individual needs of each patient.
Body contouring surgery is popular among men and women that have undergone bariatric (weight loss) surgery, and are left with loose, saggy skin, especially in such areas as the abdomen, arms, and thighs. In addition, some women choose to undergo body contouring procedures in an effort to regain their pre-pregnancy shape.
Common body contouring procedures include:
- Tummy Tuck or abdominoplasty is a procedure that is done to tone and tighten the abdomen. During the operation the surgeon will remove the extra skin in the abdominal region and repair the underlying muscles if required.
- Liposuctiongets rid of unwanted pockets of fat from various parts of the body. This has traditionally been performed with the use of a cannula (small, blunt tube), which is inserted below the skin through a small incision. However, there are now advanced liposuction techniques that utilize laser technologies.
- Mommy makeover surgery is popular among women desiring to rejuvenate their body after pregnancy. It combines a variety of body contouring procedures including tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation.
