What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a term that describes a variety of cosmetic procedures. The goal of body contouring is to improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin.

In addition to removing excess fat, body contouring also includes extractions of excess skin and muscle repairs to improve the overall appearance of the treatment area.

How does body contouring work?

There are many different body contouring techniques, and the one that’s best for you will depend on your unique goals, needs, and anatomy. The most important thing to know about body contouring is that it is not a weight loss treatment. The best candidates are already at or near their goal weight and are looking to address stubborn pockets of fat, loose skin, or other concerns that can’t be improved with diet and exercise alone.

At your body contouring consultation, your doctor will talk to you about your goals and examine your areas of concern. They will then recommend a treatment plan that’s customized to you. Some of the most popular body contouring treatments include:

• Liposuction

• Tummy tuck surgery

• Mommy makeover

• Brazilian butt lift

• CoolSculpting

• Emsculpt

In addition to these treatments, there are also many other non-surgical body contouring options, such as laser treatments and injectable fat reduction.

Who is the ideal candidate for body contouring?

The ideal candidate for body contouring is a person who is in good health, but has areas of stubborn fat that just won’t go away. Dr. Rucker explains that body contouring is not a weight loss tool, but rather a way to put the finishing touches on your body. “It’s for people who are in relatively good shape, but have that one spot that is driving them crazy,” he says.

Dr. Rucker also explains that the ideal candidate for body contouring is someone who has realistic expectations about their results. “There are limitations to every procedure, so it’s important to have a good understanding of what can and cannot be done,” he says.

What are the different types of body contouring?

There are many different types of body contouring, and what’s best for you will depend on your goals and current situation.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that suctions fat from specific areas of the body. It’s the most popular surgical treatment for fat removal and is a great option for those who are looking to remove a lot of fat from a specific area.

Non-surgical fat reduction is another option for those looking to remove fat from specific areas. There are many different types of non-surgical fat reduction, but they all work by reducing the number of fat cells in a specific area. CoolSculpting is one of the most popular non-surgical fat reduction treatments and uses freezing technology to kill fat cells.

If you’re looking to tighten your skin, there are many different treatments available, including laser skin tightening and radiofrequency skin tightening. Laser skin tightening uses laser technology to heat the collagen under the skin, which helps to tighten and tone the skin. Radiofrequency skin tightening uses radiofrequency technology to heat the collagen under the skin.

What are the risks of body contouring?

There are risks associated with any surgical procedure, and body contouring is no different. The risks of body contouring include:

• Infection

• Scarring

• Poor wound healing

• Blood clots

• Excessive bleeding

• Changes in skin sensation

• Fluid accumulation

• Numbness of the skin

• Fat embolism

• Anesthesia risks

• Need for revision surgery

• Death

While the risks of body contouring are rare, it is important to discuss them with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure.

What is the recovery process like?

The recovery process varies depending on the type of body contouring procedure you get.

Non-invasive procedures usually have little to no downtime. You may feel some soreness or see some redness or swelling at the treatment site, but this should go away on its own within a few days.

With liposuction, you’ll likely experience swelling, bruising, and soreness for the first week or two. You may need to wear a compression garment to help control the swelling and support the treatment area as it heals. Most people can return to work within a few days.

If you have a tummy tuck, you can expect a recovery process of several weeks. You may need to stay in the hospital for a day or two. You’ll also need to wear a compression garment, and you may have a small tube placed under your skin to help drain excess fluid. You’ll need to take it easy, avoid heavy lifting, and sleep with your legs and head elevated for a few weeks.

How do I find a provider I trust?

Do your research. Read reviews and look at before-and-after photos. Make sure your provider is board-certified. A board-certified provider is someone who has gone above and beyond to prove they are a master of their craft.

Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion, too. This is your body, and you have to live with the decisions you make. So, do your homework and choose a provider you feel confident in.

What can I do to maintain my results?

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is the best way to keep your results looking their best. This means eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise. If you have a favorite type of workout, like yoga or running, keep up the good work! If you’re not a fan of the gym, that’s okay, too. Find a physical activity you enjoy and aim to get at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week.

It’s also important to avoid weight gain in the future, as this can negatively impact your results. If you do gain weight, it’s possible that remaining fat cells in the treated area could expand. This could lead to a loss of your results.
