Cosmetic Body Contouring Options
Cosmetic body contouring encompasses procedures undertaken to enhance and improve the body’s natural appearance, and is often performed after a patient has undergone major weight loss, in order to remove excess sagging fat and skin, and help the body re-conform to the patient’s new, smaller proportions.

Reasons To Have Surgery
Over the last decade, the number of cosmetic body contouring procedures performed in the United States has nearly doubled. This incredible rise in the popularity of cosmetic surgery can be attributed to multiple factors. Significant advances in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery have led to shorter surgical recovery periods, fewer procedures requiring in-patient hospital stays, safer and more effective procedural techniques, and more natural-looking results. Other factors contributing to the increase in cosmetic surgery procedures include the substantial increase in the number of bariatric (weight loss) surgeries performed, and the rising trend of patients electing to undergo cosmetic surgery after experiencing tremendous frustration when their attempts to live a healthy lifestyle do not produce the aesthetic results they were hoping for.
Regrettably, although good diet and exercise play an important role in determining the shape and physical appearance of the body, a multitude of other causes can negatively impact the body’s appearance, leading to unsightly problems such as excess skin, uneven body contours, and tummy bulges. These problematic aesthetic issues cannot be rectified through diet and exercise alone, and are caused by: aging, significant weight loss or weight gain, genetics, environmental influences, the stresses of pregnancy and childbirth, and hormonal fluctuations. Fortunately, advances in body contouring surgery are enabling individuals to transform their appearance, correcting and perfecting “problem areas” that they have struggled with for years, and allowing them to make these aesthetic improvements safely, conveniently, and with minimal interruption to their daily routine.
