Have you been working hard to lose weight but some fatty areas refuse to diminish? As you’re shedding some pounds, do some areas get smaller but others stay the same? You have options to have the exact body you want after you’ve lost weight.
It’s important to realize that body contouring isn’t a method to lose weight. Body contouring is meant to help fine tune your results. You’ll have the body you want in no time at all!
Liposuction – Liposuction is a surgical means to remove unwanted fat. The body can also be contoured during the procedure to give you a fantastic figure after the fat has been eliminated. If you have diet and exercise-resistant fat, this is the surgery for you.
The best part about the procedure is that multiple areas of the body can be addressed at the same time. Depending on your specific needs, your doctor can recommend fat removal from the abdomen, breasts, hips, thighs, upper arms, knees, ankles, neck, and face. While the results may be the most drastic, this is the most invasive of your options.
Tummy Tuck – A tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) procedure involves reshaping the abdomen after significant weight loss. Excess skin and fat is removed while the underlying muscles are tightening. If you’re showing signs of aging or have experienced multiple pregnancies, a tummy tuck can bring your body back to normal.
Loose skin exclusively in the lower abdomen can be treated with a mini-abdonimoplasty. It’s much less invasive and can provide noticeable results.
We’d love to discuss your options with you. Please let us know if you have any questions. You deserve to have a slim figure even when your excess fat is stubborn!
