There are several body contouring plastic surgery procedures out there but the main three, and probably most known are liposuction, abdominoplasty, and the contouring of the body after massive weight loss. It is important to remember that no cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure is able to simply get rid of your unwanted body fat. All body contouring plastic surgery procedures are designed to assist you in getting the body you desire. The assistance can be a great help, but you need to lose your unwanted weight before you receive any body contouring plastic surgery procedure. Only a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon can give you the results you desire.
Liposuction is a procedure that removes localized areas of excess fatty tissue. Liposuction can be performed on many area of the body to include: face, neck, chest, abdomen, back, arms, hips, and legs. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but rather a body contouring procedure. It is designed to address those areas of fatty tissue that are resistant to diet and exercise. The ideal candidate is at or near their ideal body weight and in good physical condition. Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery a Board Certified Plastic Surgeons uses the tumescent technique when performing liposuction. Brian Evans MD will help you determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction during your consultation.
Abdominoplasty is a procedure designed to contour the abdomen. This is accomplished by removing excess skin and fat as well as tightening the abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is not a weight loss procedure, and the best results are achieved in those patients who are at or near their ideal body weight. Ideal candidates are those who have had children or lost a significant amount of weight and are in good physical condition. The technique used depends on several variables that will be discussed with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon during your consultation.
Body contouring after weight loss is designed to address the excess skin that develops after a patient loses a significant amount of weight. Despite the weight loss and exercise, the stretched out skin often will not shrink back adequately. This can lead to difficulties with exercising, finding clothes that fit properly, hygiene and discouragement that the transformation is not complete. Areas of the body that are often addressed during body contouring after weight loss include: abdomen, arms, buttock, and thighs. Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery will discuss the different options that are available during your consultation.
