Aging and pregnancy can leave you with excess skin and fat in various areas all over your body. Typical weight loss and more involved methods, like gastric bypass surgery, can also result in flabby, loose skin. Fortunately, a total body lift and body contouring procedure can help to reshape your body, tighten sagging tissue, and reduce excess fat.
Prior to your procedure, your Orange County surgeon will let you know if more than one session is necessary, which can depend on how many areas you need lifted and how extensive your contouring will be. You can have lifts and contouring done on a number of places, including your breasts, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, back, buttocks, thighs, and ankles.
Can I benefit from body contouring?
To find out if you are a good candidate for body contouring and lifts, schedule a time to talk with one of our Orange County surgeons about your unique situation. The doctor will examine you and give you realistic expectations about what you can do to improve your appearance. In general, you might be a fit for body contouring if the following applies to you:
- You have excess or sagging skin around areas of your body such as your breasts, buttocks, thighs, hips, back, arms, neck, or abdomen
What can I expect after the surgery?
Depending on which areas of your body you have modified, you might experience swelling, bruising, and soreness for a few days. Your Orange County surgeon will talk with you ahead of time about which medications are available to keep you comfortable. The amount of time you will need to wait before resuming regular activities, exercising, and returning to work also varies according to the extent of your procedure. Keep in mind that maintaining a healthy diet afterward is necessary for keeping your results.
