How can body contouring help?

Women and men struggling with loose, sagging skin or excess fat can get cosmetic help with specific body contouring procedures. After significant weight loss, many people, especially women after pregnancy, experience isolated pockets of fat in certain areas of the body that won't go away with diet and exercise. Another common issue is sagging skin that won't conform to a person's new body size or shape. Loss of skin elasticity is also a side effect of age. You can reshape your body with skin tightening and fat reducing techniques to enjoy a slimmer, more fit-looking appearance.

Five popular body contouring treatments

Body contouring surgery can eliminate those pesky issues of stubborn fat and sagging skin to give your body more definition and a proportionate appearance. From nonsurgical to surgical cosmetic intervention, patients can customize what they need. During a private consultation, Dr. Tamburrino will listen to your aesthetic concerns and assess your cosmetic needs to determine what combination of procedures will be the right protocol to achieve your goals. Here is a look at some of the most popular body contouring techniques performed at Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa:

1. Lower body lift

Body lift procedures are beneficial for men and women who have experienced dramatic weight loss. However, they can be a popular option for older women and men concerned about sagging skin caused by age. Lower body lift procedures usually involve some form of liposuction along with skin tightening techniques for optimal results. It can contour and reshape the lower back, upper thighs, flanks, and buttocks to create a more toned lower body while allowing patients one recovery.

2. Mommy makeover

A mommy makeover is a customized set of two or more body contouring procedures to reduce stubborn fat pockets and tighten loose skin after pregnancy or weight loss. The primary target areas are generally the abdomen and breasts, but mommy makeover surgery can be customized to whatever a woman needs. Like a lower body lift, two or more body contouring procedures can be done simultaneously, allowing busy women a chance to tackle more than one area of the body and plan for one recovery period.

3. Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a popular body contouring option to remove pockets of stubborn fat with liposuction and tighten loose skin in the abdominal area. It can also tighten the underlying abdominal muscles, a common issue for female patients after pregnancy. With advancements in surgical techniques, tummy tuck surgery can be customized to accommodate what each person needs. Some patients might require a full tummy tuck while others may only need a mini tummy tuck for optimal results.

4. Arm lift

Brachioplasty, or arm lift, improves the appearance of a person's underarm area with this skin tightening procedure. It can recontour the upper arm, from the elbow to the armpit, by minimizing sagging skin's appearance. Liposuction can also be utilized to alleviate the dreaded "bat wing" look often created in the upper arm area by excess pockets of fat. After brachioplasty, patients are left with a more sculpted, tighter upper arm area.

5. Liposuction

Liposuction is still the leader in body contouring help for individuals wanting a slimmer, more defined appearance in certain areas. For men and women in Doylestown, PA, liposuction can recontour almost any area of the body by reducing pockets of unwanted fat. It is performed with a cannula instrument, a small tub used to break up and extract the fat from beneath the skin in areas, like the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, underneath the chin, chest, and back.
