What are My Options in Body Contouring?
Body contouring has become a popular request in plastic surgery today, as more procedures are available to provide sculpting to a variety of problem areas. Whether you are looking to trim inches off the tummy or give your upper arms a more youthful definition, surgical procedures can help you enhance your body shape and self-confidence. At Rodeo Surgical Art, we offer the following choices in body contour to help you attain your desired results. Liposuction Liposuction is one of the most common body contouring procedures performed today, because it can we used on a variety of treatment areas. This procedure is less invasive than other types of body contouring surgeries and is particularly effective in addressing isolated pockets of fat from areas like the midsection, hips, thighs, back, arms, chest and even the neck and chin. Brachioplasty Also known as an upper arm lift, brachioplasty removes excess fat and skin from the underside of the upper arm that often resembles bat wings. This procedure gives you more slender, firmer upper arms that you will be more confident showing off in sleeveless fashions. This procedure may be recommended for patients that just lost a significant amount of weight or those of normal weight that are beginning to see sagging in the upper arm due to aging. Tummy Tuck A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat, skin and tissue from the midsection. This procedure may be performed alone or in combination with other body contouring procedures like liposuction or a breast lift. A tummy tuck offers more dramatic results than liposuction, but also requires a longer recovery period. Breast Lift Like the buttocks, the breasts can begin to droop and sag due to breastfeeding, weight loss or the aging process. A breast lift will restore the youthful appearance of your breasts. Augmentation using implants or a reduction procedure can also be performed with the breast lift to enhance the results. Body contouring is an effective way to sculpt your body into a leaner, more enticing profile.
