When is Body Contouring an Option for Me?

There are few things quite as satisfying as hearing about a patient getting to show off all their hard work at the gym.  I take great pride in knowing that my patients are able to maintain or even improve upon their active and healthy lifestyles.  Modern plastic surgery provides a variety of cosmetic procedures that can help sculpt and refine the body to maintain a youthful and vital appearance, improving and enhancing the results that come from diet and exercise alone.  In the most optimal cases, cosmetic body contouring procedures work in harmony with a healthy lifestyle, and the only question is the best time to begin.

Many of my patients come to me once they are ready to take the next steps towards a healthier lifestyle.  Whether due to weight loss surgery or weight loss programs, some patients have experienced substantial weight loss that have made them both feel and look better than they ever have in their lives.  However such significant weight loss can result in a large amount of excess skin, generally in the arms and thighs.  Arm lift and thigh lift procedures help eliminate the excess skin and fat that can hang or sag beneath the arms or legs, creating a more toned and contoured look.

As a mother myself, I can understand the stresses pregnancy can place on our bodies.  The physical demands of carrying children to term and delivery can separate the muscles of the abdominal wall to the point that no amount of diet or exercise will ever result in the trim midsection of our pre-baby bodies.  Mommy makeover procedures, including tummy tucks, are becoming an increasingly popular body contouring option for mothers who don’t plan to have any more children.  The mommy makeover encompasses a combination of procedures designed to help address the physical changes of pregnancy while the tummy tuck involves removing excess fat and skin from the midsection and re-tightening the abdominal muscles to recreate a more trim and youthful silhouette.
