Body Contouring — More Is Better

Often times two is better than one, and this principle holds true even for cosmetic surgery. Undergoing simultaneous procedures is safer because the chance of complications does not increase and recovery time is greatly reduced. It is always better to avoid going under anesthesia as much as possible, as this is the cause of many risks.

The other benefit of choosing to undergo multiple procedures, such as all over contouring, is that the results will be much more satisfactory. Often times one surgery is performed and the patient may be pleased, but still finds flaws and other things that detract from his new appearance.

This surgery is ideal as it addresses many different problems that may be adding up to the general dissatisfaction with body image. Many procedures also work naturally well together, such as liposuction, tummy tucks, and thigh lifts. Patients seeking these types of treatments usually have complaints about multiple areas anyways due to major weight loss or post-pregnancy changes.

So which surgeries can help you gain confidence and look great? Liposuction is meant to target stubborn pockets of fat that refuse to budge regardless of exercise and diet.

This procedure helps smooth out irregularities and sculpt the body to look leaner and fitter. It is most often used in the stomach and love handles, but can successfully be used almost anywhere there is excess fat on parts, including the knees, thighs, neck, chin, and arms. Liposuction is often necessary to use in conjunction with such procedures as butt lifts and tummy tucks in order to achieve the best results possible.

Another procedure that is worth combining with liposuction are lifts. There are many different types of lifts, but they all serve the same basic function — to tighten muscle and remove hanging skin and fat. Leg, butt, and arm lifts are some of the most common and will help remove any lax tissue.

These procedures tend to leave large areas of scarring due to the lengthy incisions necessary to complete the surgery; however, the results are often worth it. Exercise and diet cannot repair skin that has been stretched beyond its limits, so lifts are necessary, especially in the case of the formerly obese, to restore the body to a leaner shape.

A tummy tuck is usually the central surgery when undergoing the procedure. During this procedure, a large incision is created across the stomach, from hip to hip, and large amounts of excess skin and fat are excised. The underlying muscle is repaired when necessary and the remaining skin will be re-draped, leaving the patient with a flattened, smooth midsection.

Tummy tucks can be taxing physically and require long recovery periods, which is why combining other procedures as well makes so much sense. You'll recover much faster than if you were to undergo each procedure separately.

Body contouring is different for everyone and depends on individual needs, so consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to help you make the best decision.
