Body contouring procedures involve sculpting a person’s body to meet their desire of having a pleasing appearance. To achieve this, plastic surgeons implement several techniques and surgeries to get the needed effect. Through these procedures, plastic surgeons give patients the appearance they always dreamed of. Patients eventually end up receiving a serious boost to their self-esteem and gain a lot of confidence that helps them take on future challenges.
Body contouring covers several areas of the body with the intention of enhancing the way they look. Each procedure serves a specific purpose. One particular procedure can be used to remove excess fat while another can be used to improve the positioning of a particular body part.
Body Contouring Options
Here is a list of some of the most popular body contouring procedures:
Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, sculpts and shapes the abdomen and waist by removing excess fat bulges and sagging skin. This procedure is particularly effective with patients who have lax skin as a result of significant weight fluctuation, such as women post-pregnancy, and patients who have lost a large amount of weight.
Liposuction: This is a very popular body contouring procedure that involves the removal of stubborn or excess fat from the body. It is a simple surgery carried out using local anesthesia. The plastic surgeon makes small incisions in the fatty areas and inserts small tubes that suck out the stubborn fat. There are different methods of liposuction, but they all primarily involve sucking out the fat.
Breast augmentation: A lot of women are concerned about the appearance of their breasts. They either feel their breasts are too droopy or too small. In order to provide them with the desired size and appearance, plastic surgeons perform a procedure known as breast augmentation. It basically involves using surgical techniques to increase size and improve the position of the breasts to create a fuller appearance.

Most women agree that the bodies we have post-pregnancy are nothing to be ashamed of, as we’ve created, grown, fed, and nurtured children from them. A woman should always be proud of her body, but there’s nothing wrong with looking for a little upgrade if that’s something you seek. Many women find their self-confidence increase when they’re able to improve areas of concern, like getting their own breasts back after breastfeeding multiple children.
Reversing the appearance of the breasts post-pregnancy is a common goal among most women taking part in mommy makeovers. Childbearing can wreak havoc on the breasts, often causing their fullness to disappear. A breast lift is a technique used in combination with others to help meet a patient’s needs. In some cases, implants like silicone or saline are used to lift the breasts, while filling out the area.
Some patients experience better results from breast reduction during their mommy makeover. A breast reduction procedure will remove the excess skin that’s become saggy and tighten up the area or create more comfort for the patient.
A tummy tuck is the perfect procedure for women aiming to improve their mid-section post-pregnancy. It’s apparent that the skin and muscles in the abdominal area will be affected post-pregnancy, as this area has to stretch a great deal during pregnancy. A tummy tuck will rid the patient’s body of the extra skin and provide them with the framework for a tight abdominal area.
The mini tummy tuck is a less invasive procedure, as the incision made is smaller than that used with the standard tummy tuck. The smaller insert allows the area to heal faster, and this type of tummy tuck is often effective for women who do not have as much excess skin to hide.
If you’re having a hard time getting rid of the extra baby weight, liposuction could be the perfect addition to your mommy makeover. Liposuction works by removing extra fat on the spot, allowing those extra pounds to fade right away.

As we age, it becomes more and more difficult to maintain a flat, shapely abdomen. Sometimes, no matter how intensely a person diets or exercises, pockets of fat and excess skin in the stomach area just won’t go away. One of the most common and effective solutions to this frustrating problem is a Tummy Tuck, clinically known as an abdominoplasty.
Let’s explore some of the main talking points to find out if a tummy tuck is right for your body.
Just how effective is a tummy tuck? According to those who have had one – very. The procedure received a staggering 95 percent “worth it” rating based on feedback from thousands of recent tummy tuck patients.
What does a tummy tuck do? An abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin on the abdomen and tightens stomach muscles, helping to provide a flatter appearance.
Who is the best candidate for a tummy tuck? The patients best suited for a tummy tuck are healthy adults who have pockets of fat or excess skin in the abdominal area that have not responded well to traditional diet and exercise. Older, slightly obese adults are also a good fit for a tummy tuck, since skin loses elasticity as we age. Tummy tucks are also an effective solution for women whose stomach muscles and skin have stretched during pregnancy and birth.
Is there any reason to delay a tummy tuck? Yes, as certain circumstances can diminish the results of a tummy tuck. Women who still plan to become pregnant should hold off on an abdominoplasty until they are done having children. Also, patients who wish to lose a large amount of weight before the procedure are advised to postpone surgery, since skin tends to loosen after weight loss. Delaying the procedure in these cases will ensure long-lasting results.
