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.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a procedure that works to restore fullness and a youthful contour to breasts that have sagged or drooped over time. If you’re looking to combat signs of aging and restore a more full and youthful look to your breasts, keep reading and check out some of the top questions patients have about the breast lift procedure.
What are the risks and complications of a breast lift? Complications are generally rare and minimal, but can include infection, changes in nipple sensation, and bleeding. By choosing a well-experienced surgeon, complications can typically be avoided.
Will there be scarring? Scars are part of the surgical process but fortunately, they tend to heal rapidly and fade with time. Experienced surgeons place incisions in inconspicuous areas, often hidden in the natural curvature of the breast to minimize the appearance of scarring.
How will my breasts look and feel following a breast lift? Some bruising and swelling will likely occur after surgery, however this should diminish in a matter of days. After recovery, many women equate their new breasts to that of a teenage girl with young, healthy, firm or perky breasts. Enhanced results can be achieved by combining a breast lift with breast implants.
Will insurance cover my breast lift? Breast lift surgery is considered to be a cosmetic procedure. Since it is not deemed medically necessary, insurance providers do not offer coverage.
Is a combination breast lift and breast implant surgery too much to do at one time? No, this combination of procedures is safe and does not put too much stress on the breasts. In fact, it is better to combine the procedures because less skin needs to be removed, causing less scarring.
