Body Contouring by a Cosmetic Surgeon
Body contouring by a cosmetic surgeon includes a wide variety of different plastic surgery procedures designed to improve and reshape the body. The procedures performed are dependent on the goals and physical situation of each individual. A good candidate must:
- Be an adult in good health
- Have a stabilized weight
- Be committed to diet, exercise, proper nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle
- Have realistic goals
- Have no conflicting medical conditions
- Be a non-smoker
- Have no medical conditions that may impair healing
Numerous women choose body contouring by a cosmetic surgeon after childbirth to regain their original shape. Losing a lot of weight is healthier and provides the individual with more energy. Unfortunately, this often leaves the skin stretched. There are procedures to sculpt and tighten numerous areas of the body. Age can also cause the body to become out of shape. The most common areas people want to improve are the face, breasts, thighs, neck, abdomen, upper arms, calves, back, and waistline.
The Most Common Body Contouring Procedures with a Cosmetic Surgeon
A tummy tuck is a common procedure for anyone experiencing extensive weight loss, aging or having children. These conditions can stretch both the abdominal muscles and the skin. For some people, this means there is unwanted fat on the abdomen. A tummy tuck eliminates stubborn fat pockets and excess skin from the abdominal area, defines the waist, flattens the stomach and tightens the muscles. It is extremely important to follow the post-op instructions of the surgeon.
Breastfeeding, extreme weight loss and age can cause the breasts to sag and flatten. Breast lift surgery provides a firmer and more youthful appearance to a woman’s breasts. During the surgery, the breast skin is tightened to create a more attractive and lifted shape.
Buttock augmentation or buttock enhancement is designed to enhance the natural shape of the buttocks. Buttocks that have sagged or flattened due to age are raised. The size and shape of the buttocks can also be changed to appear the way the individual desires. Fat injection is generally used for buttock contouring. Liposuction is used to suction unwanted fat from another area of the body. The fat is injected into the derriere to provide a better shape and add fullness. The results are less natural and complications are possible. This can result in the need for additional surgery in the future.
