Cosmetic surgery of the body, or body contouring, is for people who wish to improve their appearance and form. Undesired changes to the appearance of your body can occur following changes in weight, due to aging or pregnancy. Body contouring procedures restore a slimmer profile to areas that have not responded well to continued dieting and exercise.
Body contouring can address the excess skin in your belly, hips, chest, arms, buttocks and thighs. Body contouring procedures are especially helpful after weight loss surgery. People find that after a gastric bypass, lap band, or a Roux-en-y bypass that they are able to lose a lot of weight, but the extra skin does not go away.
Cosmetic surgery procedures involve removal of the excess skin (tummy tuck or abdominoplasty) or fat from your abdomen (liposuction). By combining liposuction with a tummy tuck, the undesired look of your abdomen can be reversed to result in dramatic improvements to your contour and appearance (see our Photo Gallery for before and after photos). These are safe operations for either men or women. In addition, enhancement procedures for females such as a breast enlargement, breast reduction, or breast lift can be done at the same time to dramatically improve your upper body form.
Dramatic weight loss can leave excess skin and residual fat in your extremities: the upper arm and inner thighs and knees. Plastic surgery procedures that reduce the amount of excess skin in the extremities not only improve appearance and self-esteem, but also improve your ability to exercise and lose more weight.
