Body Contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a surgery or procedure that tightens your skin and often gets rid of some subdermal fat. Many people are unsatisfied with their figures because of loose skin or hard-to-lose areas of fat. 

Even if you exercise daily and consume a healthy diet, certain features linked to genetics, weight loss, or pregnancy remain in place. Body contouring procedures and surgeries can help you look slimmer, less wrinkled, or more toned. 

Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. helps you select a body contouring option that aligns with your goals. They also help you identify the areas you want to target for a more proportionate body shape. 

What are my options for body contouring?

Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. is proud to offer numerous options for body contouring, including surgeries and noninvasive energy-driven skin tightening treatments. 

Surgeries for body contouring include:

  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery)
  • Liposuction (fat removal)
  • Arm lift
  • Thigh lift

If you’re a new mother and want to get rid of excess skin after pregnancy, Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. might recommend a mommy makeover. 

Mommy makeovers involve more than one procedure with coordinated planning, including body contouring surgeries like abdominoplasty and liposuction, to restore your body shape after you give birth.

If you’re not interested in surgery but want to enjoy tighter skin for a slimmer figure, Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. offers ThermiSmooth® facial skin tightening and ThermiTight® body skin tightening. Both Thermi® procedures use radiofrequency to tighten your skin and stimulate collagen growth. 

Who should consider body contouring?

There are a few reasons why you might consider body contouring. In many cases, women who recently gave birth turn to body contouring surgeries and procedures to remove or tighten the excess skin in their abdominal areas. This can help boost your confidence and improve your self-image after a major life change. 

Similarly, many people who recently lost significant weight choose body contouring to tighten the loose skin in areas that once held a lot of body fat. 

Since body contouring isn’t for weight loss, it’s important to wait until you’ve met your weight loss goal and your weight is stable for some time. 

Advanced Hand & Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, Inc. helps you decide whether the time is right for you to consider body contouring procedures.
