Every day, the world is inundated with images of the perfect body—the ideal size, shape, and definition. Body Contouring procedures aim to help patients look and feel their best, enhancing our natural features and improving proportions.
Through the natural aging process and genetics, our bodies lose collagen, elasticity, and overall firmness. Patients fluctuate in weight, have babies, or gradually stop exercising, all resulting in sagging skin, excess fat, and changes to the body that don’t complement its natural shape. Various procedures relieve these issues by removing fat, toning skin, and revitalizing the shape of the body.
Pregnancy and childbirth can leave new mothers with excess fat and skin, particularly around their stomachs, hips, and thighs. Breasts start to sag, and fat emerges in new places, like the back and underarms. Mommy makeovers resolve issues of excess fat with body contouring procedures and techniques to restore volume to and lift the breasts.
Stubborn fat and loose skin around the abdomen tends to be a difficult problem to address, even with diet and exercise. This can be a cause of changes in weight or childbirth. Abdominoplasty—more commonly known as a tummy tuck—allows the removal of stubborn fat and simultaneous tightening of the abdominal skin and muscles. The procedure contours the body into a more appealing shape that flatters the body’s natural proportions.
Rectus Diastasis Repair
Weight gain or pregnancy and childbirth can cause the abdominal muscles to separate, leaving patients feeling very uncomfortable or with an aesthetically displeasing bulge. Many complain that they lack core strength, have feelings of unbalance, and even back pain. The common problem is that the abdominal muscles never fully return and leave a noticeable gap. “Diastasis” means “to separate,” so rectus diastasis repair is a procedure that brings the abdominal muscles back together.
When fat clings to the body, it tends to cluster around common problem areas like the stomach, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Liposuction uses a wand-like tool to loosen excess fat cells, then a suctioning device to altogether remove them from the body. The procedure smooths problem areas, creating a slimmer, more defined appearance.
Men’s Body Contouring
Women aren’t the only patients inquiring about body contouring. Aside from fat removal and smoothing the skin, men also seek help in sculpting the body into a more ideal shape with defined shoulders, narrower hips, and flat abs. Men’s body contouring uses liposuction to remove stubborn fat and enhance a compelling look of toned muscles.
Extra fat and skin in the extremities is a common complaint, one that’s often met with frustration over issues like saggy arms and bulky thighs. A body lift works to remove any clusters of fat and consequent sagging skin. The result is a contoured, smooth shape that complements the natural proportions of the body.
