What is body contouring?
Following a major weight loss, there may likely be an extensive amount of skin left behind where fatty deposits used to be. This excessive skin may not have the ability to compress to the body’s new size on its own. Body contouring is an effective procedure that can remove excess skin or remaining fat from the designated area, all while sculpting your figure to create an improved, proportioned image.

What results can I expect from a body contouring procedure?
Patients who undergo a body contouring can notice immediate, noticeable results following their procedure that can last for years with a commitment to a proper diet and fitness routine. Results of an improved figure will become more apparent over time as your body adjusts to its new shape. Some people may experience scarring at their treatment site. Ultimately, results will differ from person to person. To better determine what results you may be able to expect, meet with our plastic surgeon team today.
What is the recovery process like for body contouring?
During your recovery period, you will need to keep the treated area protected with bandaging. Depending on the extent of your procedure, you may need to avoid bending, straining or lifting for a period of time. Our plastic surgeons will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure your health and wellness.
Sometimes after a major weight loss, there may be one last step necessary to begin the new chapter of your life. Call us today to schedule your consultation appointment and find out if a body contouring procedure may be right for you.
