Body Contouring

Body Contouring (Surgical Body Shaping) – Fort Worth, TX

Overview

Everyone wants a sculpted and smooth body shape and combining several body contouring surgeries can help you accomplish your contouring goals. Pregnancies, weight gain, and weight loss can leave a woman’s abdomen stretched, loose, scarred, and saggy. Many men also suffer from unsightly fat around the stomach, waist and the dreaded love-handles. Both men and women have areas of fat that are typically resistant to diet and exercise, but body contouring alters your body shape through a customized group of surgical procedures. During your private consultation, our plastic surgeons will guide you to the right procedure as you share your body contouring goals with them and create a treatment plan for your best results.

Surgical Procedures

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, to achieve the desired results, multiple surgeries may be needed and staged over time.

During/After Surgery

All body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia at an accredited surgical facility. The duration of the surgery and the time spent in the hospital will depend on what surgery was performed, as well as how many were combined. While the recovery can be somewhat trying, most 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, and limit sun exposure so the surgical results are not compromised.
