What Body Contouring Is and How It Improves Your Figure
Posted on March 4, 2022 by Dr. Carlos Chacon - Body Contouring
Body contouring, also called body sculpting, is a medical or surgical procedure designed to reshape one or more body areas. Some men and women may wish to get rid of excess skin or unwanted fat, while others focus on adding volume. Body contouring encompasses a range of options customized to suit your needs.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, Dr. Carlos Chacon offers a variety of body contouring procedures to improve your figure, including the following.
Dr. Chacon offers several liposuction techniques, including power-assisted liposuction, SmartLipo and VASER LipoSelection to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat. Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed procedures. Lipo can get rid of unwanted fat from your neck to your calves to give you a slimmer contour. However, it won’t address loose, sagging skin tissue.
Fat Injections or Fat Transfer
Body contouring is not all about slimming your figure. Fat transfer procedures can add volume and projection to the breasts and buttocks, and fat injections may be used for facial procedures to enhance the lips or cheeks. The fat cells are removed from another area of your body, processed and then re-introduced into the treated body part.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck offers several benefits for those who have given birth or lost a significant amount of weight. The abdominoplasty procedure removes loose skin and tightens the abdominal muscles for a firm, flat stomach. Dr. Chacon may utilize liposuction for your tummy tuck to get rid of stubborn areas of fat. If you have stretch marks in the lower abdomen, the abdominoplasty will likely remove them with the excess skin.
Dr. Chacon offers the mini tummy tuck for men and women who struggle with a lower abdominal “pooch.”
Pregnancy causes a myriad of changes, and many women struggle with sagging breasts and loose abdominal skin once they’ve healed from childbirth. A mommy makeover is a combination of plastic surgeries to contour your breasts and body and restore a pre-pregnancy figure. Breast surgery such as breast augmentation with breast implants, breast lift or a breast reduction may be involved, along with a tummy tuck and liposuction.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, we offer various lift procedures such as the arm lift, thigh lift, and body lift. These plastic surgeries excise loose skin tissue and reshape the area for a slimmer, more pleasing body shape. Many of these lift procedures are combined with liposuction for enhanced results.
