What is Body Contouring?

Otherwise known as body sculpting, body contouring is a medical or surgical procedure that is designed to reshape various areas of the body. These procedures are able to:

  • Remove excess skin
  • Trim away excess fat
  • Achieve more definition in the body 

Contrary to what some individuals may think, body contouring procedures are not intended to help patients lose weight. These treatments are designed to shape the body and address specific areas of concern where the patient is struggling with excess fat or sagging skin, usually resulting from previous weight loss. 

What are the Benefits of Body Contouring?

Body contouring comes with many benefits for patients who are struggling with excess tissue. Some of these include:

  • Sculpts and enhances the natural contours of the body, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing shape
  • Removes excess fat deposits from specific areas, addressing stubborn fat pockets that may be resistant to diet and exercise
  • Skin tightening benefits, helping to reduce sagging or loose skin, particularly after the patient has experienced significant weight loss or pregnancy
  • A more sculpted and toned appearance, leading to improvements in self-esteem and confidence
  • A more proportionate body shape, helping patients fit in their clothes better, leading to increased comfort
  • Provides long-lasting results when combined with a healthy lifestyle
  • Tailored to address specific areas of concern, allowing for a personalized approach
  • Motivates patients to adopt and maintain a healthier lifestyle, including regular exercise and a balanced diet

Who is a Candidate for the Procedure?

Candidacy for body contouring procedures involves a few different criteria, including:

Having achieved significant weight loss

Body contouring is most often sought by individuals who have lost a substantial amount of weight, either through lifestyle changes or bariatric surgery, and are now struggling with excess skin or stubborn fat deposits.

Maintaining a stable weight

Candidates should be at or near their goal weight and committed to maintaining a stable weight to ensure long-lasting results.

Being of sound body and mind

Individuals who are interested in body contouring should be in good physical health and free of any medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications.

Being a non-smoker

Smoking can negatively impact the body's healing processes, increasing the risk of complications. Surgeons typically recommend that patients be non-smokers or quit for a period before and after the treatment.

Having specific concerns or areas of discomfort

Candidates usually have specific areas of concern, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms, where they are unhappy with excess skin or stubborn pockets of fat.

Are willing to commit to the recovery process

Dr. Hyman will tailor a specific recovery protocol based on the procedure performed, and the patient must adhere to all post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal results. 

Above all, patients should consult with a highly revered practitioner to determine their candidacy. After carrying out a comprehensive assessment, a treatment plan will be created based on their unique health, goals, and circumstances. During the consultation with Dr. Hyman, patients will have the opportunity to speak freely about all of their goals and concerns regarding body contouring.

The details of your body contouring procedure will ultimately depend on which treatment you choose to undergo. The length, cost, and side effects of the procedure will all depend on the type of treatment being performed. 

What is the Recovery Process like?

Following a body contouring procedure, it is normal for patients to experience swelling, bruising, and sometimes discomfort. Following all of the post-operative care instructions, such as wearing compression garments and avoiding strenuous physical activity, is vital. The time it takes to make a full recovery can vary, but most patients can get back to their usual activities after a few weeks, with final results becoming perceivable after several months.
