What Plastic Surgery Options Do You Offer For Body Sculpting?

Dr. Brown offers a comprehensive range of plastic surgery procedures for the body, including:

  • Tummy tuckA tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty, eliminates excess fat and skin while flattening bulging or separated muscles to get the abdomen as flat as possible. Stretch marks below the belly button are removed and your belly button is made to look oval and youthful looking. Liposuction of hips is usually combined to narrow the waistline and define a more hourglass silhouette. If the pubic area is puffy or saggy, a simultaneous pubic lift and/or liposuction can enhance results.  Dr. Brown performs both full and mini-tummy tuck procedures to meet your unique needs.
  • LiposuctionLiposuction is a time-tested method of removing excess fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, buttocks, and neck. It can be performed alone or to refine the results of other cosmetic surgeries.
  • Mommy makeoverHaving a child changes your body in countless ways. Diet and exercise may not be enough to restore your pre-pregnancy figure. A customized combination of body and breast procedures, known as a mommy makeover, may be the ideal solution to your various concerns.

Body Contouring After Extreme Weight Loss

If you have lost a significant amount of weight through lifestyle changes, Ozempic,  or bariatric surgery, skin tightening procedures such as a tummy tuck and pubic lift can help with excess skin to get your figure looking as good as possible.

Body contouring after massive weight loss offers benefits such as:

  • Helping your clothes fit better and look more flattering
  • Improving hygiene
  • Minimizing rashes and chaffing
  • Increasing your ability to exercise
  • Improving your self-esteem and quality of life
  • Helping you feel more motivated to maintain your weight loss over time

The most common procedure for people with a history of obesity and subsequent weight loss is a tummy tuck. Other post-weight loss options include pubic lift, breast lift and liposuction.

All surgical plans are highly individualized. Talk to Dr. Brown to learn which options make sense for you.

Is Body Sculpting Right For Me?

You may be an ideal candidate for body contouring if you are at or near your goal weight, in good overall health, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your procedure. It is also crucial for your weight to be stable before surgery to ensure optimal results. Weight stability for 1 year is mandatory after significant weight loss.

A consultation is the best way to learn if body contouring is right for you. During this visit, Dr. Brown will discuss your relevant medical history, examine the nature of your concern, and determine if plastic surgery can safely achieve the results you desire.

Are There Any Risks with Body Contouring?

Like other surgeries, body contouring through the tummy tuck, liposuction, or mommy makeover procedures all come with risks that patients should be aware of. Although they are uncommon, these risks can include:

  • Complications from anesthesia, such as nausea or vomiting
  • Damage to nerves or blood vessels
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection
  • Blood clots
  • Never injury
  • Numbness in the skin
  • Swelling or pain that is longer than expected
  • Skin discoloration
  • Unsatisfactory aesthetic results

At Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Brown provides the greatest level of surgical care that prioritizes patient safety and comfort during each procedure, allowing for any potential side effects and risks to be easily managed and avoided whenever possible.

What Is Recovery Like After Body Contouring?

After your body contouring procedure, you may feel swelling, pain, and discomfort. These are all expected side effects of surgery; overall, your total recovery time may take several months. Most side effects, such as swelling and bruising, should subside within a few days, but for others, they can last up to several weeks.

Although each patient’s recovery process is different, depending on their healing progress, most body contouring patients take up to four weeks of work. If you undergo a mommy makeover procedure, which involves more than one surgery, your recovery time may be longer than the average body contouring patient.

During recovery, it is crucial that patients diligently follow Dr. Brown’s aftercare guidelines. These guidelines may include wearing surgical garments, being gentle with your body, and avoiding physical tasks such as high-intensity workouts to avoid complications. As long as recovery guidelines are followed, patients can complete a successful healing process.

Dr. Brown will offer you a personal recovery timeline to let you know when you can resume normal activities as your body heals.

How Can I Prepare for My Body Contouring Procedure?

Preparing for your body contouring surgery can allow for an easy, speedier procedure and recovery. Before arriving at your surgical appointment, you should:

  • Consult with your doctor about stopping any prescribed medications that may interfere with your procedure
  • Prepare your bedroom and home for easy mobility
  • Arrange transportation with a loved one to get you to and from surgery
  • Quit smoking
  • Avoid tanning beds and sunburn
  • Ask Dr. Brown any unanswered questions you may have

How Long Will the Results from Body Contouring Last?

Results from body contouring can last up to 10 years or more. However, it’s important that patients keep in mind that maintaining a stable weight has a lasting impact on the appearance of their body contouring results. In order to maintain their results, patients should stick to a balanced diet and routine exercise to avoid gaining or losing a significant amount of weight and consequently altering their body contouring results. With a stable weight, patients can enjoy their new figure for up to a decade after recovery.
