BODY CONTOURING

OVERVIEW

Body contouring represents a group of surgeries that trim away loose skin, remove excess fat, and lift areas that have been impacted by weight loss, pregnancy or aging.  At the Plastic Surgery Center of Stockton we offer individuals the opportunity to achieve dramatic results through certain enhancement procedures. There are a number of procedures that can be combined to create the results you desire. We will discuss these options during the initial consultation and provide a detailed surgical plan that meets your aesthetic goals.

PROCEDURE

Body contouring surgery can reshape, tighten and rejuvenate almost any area of the body, creating a newer, sleeker contour. In many cases, liposuction will be included during surgery. Common areas addressed include the neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, buttocks, knees and thighs. During the initial consultation, the areas of the body that cause concern will be assessed and a surgery plan will be discussed. Some procedures may be combined into one surgery. For some individuals, in order to achieve the desired results, multiple surgeries may need to be staged over time.

AFTERCARE

All body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The recovery following this surgery can be a slow process. However, the overwhelming majority of patients feel that a new, tighter body is worth it. Patients will notice marked improvement with sagging features, as well as see a smoother skin appearance. Patients should adhere to a healthy lifestyle so the surgical results are not compromised.
