Body contouring is one of the most comprehensive areas in the field of plastic surgery. Cleveland residents who are looking to address excess fat and skin tissue that remains after significant weight loss, pregnancy, or as the result of aging will certainly want to learn more about it. Rather than being one specific procedure, it refers to a large group of surgeries that target different areas of the body.
Helping Complete the Weight Loss Process
Weight loss, for most people, is an incredible accomplishment with numerous benefits. Whether dramatic weight loss is accomplished through diet and exercise or with assistance from a surgeon, those who have achieved their weight loss goals should be incredibly proud.
Unfortunately, though, our skin loses its elasticity as we age. That means that, in many cases, our bodies cannot regain smooth contours after giving birth or having lost a lot of weight. Some people find that they have sagging, excess skin hanging from underneath their arms, around their torso, on their thighs, or elsewhere, which leads them to consider plastic surgery. Cleveland men and women have had wonderful results targeting areas like their abdomen, buttocks, arms, and more through body contouring.
Many Procedures Under the Body Contouring Category
While some people with the most dramatic weight loss have excess skin all throughout their bodies, it’s more common for it to appear specifically in targeted areas. This is especially true for women who have had children and those who have specific signs of aging that they’d like to combat. That’s why there are a number of body contouring procedures which address specific zones. These are some of the surgeries I offer patients:
Breast Lift – Targets sagging or flattened breasts.
Tummy Tuck – Focuses on the abdominal area.
Brachioplasty – Addresses sagging upper arms.
Liposuction – Used to target and remove unwanted fat cells.
Post-Bariatric Body Sculpting – A customized approach for those who have undergone bariatric bypass surgery.
