The human body is remarkable in its ability to overcome and heal itself from a wide variety of ailments. However, it often cannot recoup the skin elasticity and tissue support after you lose a large amount of weight. Rather than live with saggy skin and loose muscles and tissues, you may regain much or all of your appearance by undergoing body contouring with our expert surgeon in New Orleans. Find out what your choices are and what benefits these procedures can offer to you.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is an umbrella term for any cosmetic procedure that contours the body. These operations typically remove excess skin and fat and improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue. These procedures also achieve better proportions and result in better contours of the body. They are commonly performed on patients who have lost significant amounts of weight. They also may be recommended after an injury or trauma, childbirth, or in response to the natural aging process.
Overall, body contouring in New Orleans improves the tone and elasticity of the skin and tissue. It is available through a variety of surgical procedures that may be available to you as a patient.
Popular Treatment Options
Body contouring encompasses numerous surgical cosmetic procedures. Your choices for body contouring may include:
• Breast lift
• Thigh lift
• Tummy tuck
• Arm lift
Body contouring is only recommended for people in good overall health. It is also important to have realistic expectations regarding the procedure, the recovery, and the results.
How is Body Contouring Performed?
These procedures are performed in the comfort of our state-of-the-art surgical suite in New Orleans. Since body contouring is not one-size-fits-all, no two procedures are exactly alike. The details vary depending on the work that needs to be done, as well as the patient’s wants and needs. Of course, you should follow up with our doctor as recommended after your surgery to ensure that you are healing properly.
