Body Contouring is a series of procedures aimed at restoring your body to its previous shape after it has changed with age, massive weight shifts, and pregnancy. Predictably, every persons body changes as they age, but the way in which it occurs and what body areas are most affected, is unique to each individual and circumstance. If you are tired of waking up in the morning and not liking the reflection of your body while looking into the mirror, then schedule your consultation today with Dr. Hustak and get on the path to discovering the “new” you.
Body contouring procedures include a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), body lift (upper or lower), medial thigh lift, arm lift(brachioplasty), monsplasty, and breast lift (mastopexy). In addition to body contouring, facial contouring is often needed in these patients with a neck lift or full face lift. The goal in body contouring is to remove excess skin, fat, and tighten muscles if amenable. These procedures are usually staged, and often done in combination with one another. Traditionally, we start with the procedure in the area that is most troublesome to you, then continue until all areas are addressed. The trunk seems to be the most problematic in most patients, so a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is usually done first in combination with a monsplasty and/or lower body lift (belt lipectomy).
Body contouring patients are routinely very satisfied with the outcomes and pleased that they underwent these often life changing procedures.
