What are Body Contouring Procedures

It’s 2020, aside from the current pandemic, health and wellness is BIG. …and with health and wellness comes looking healthy and well, at any cost. Over the past several years many have been focused on losing weight to achieve their dream body. However, once the weight is gone, they are not always left with how their Pinterest inspiration told them they would look. Sometimes major weight loss can leave areas of stretched-out skin. How can you fix that? By finding a reputable plastic surgeon and finding out what body contouring procedure is right for you!

Not sure what we’re talking about or where to begin? No worries… We have you covered!

What is Body Contouring?

Despite the common misconception, these types of procedures are not for losing weight. Actually the ultimate goal of body contouring procedures are to change the shape of your body, or to change a certain part of your body to influence the overall shape. These procedures can be performed on several different areas of the body, sometimes all at once. Of course the stomach is the most popular, but the chin, neck, arms, thighs, back end, calves… (and more) are all areas that can be contoured.

Who is a Candidate for Body Contouring?

The best candidates for body contouring procedures are typically those who have gone through major weight loss. This includes many moms who have lost their pregnancy weight, but still have some areas that won’t tighten up. Additionally, anyone who wants to change something about their body that they can’t seem to accomplish at the gym or through diet and exercise.

Procedures Available

There are quite a few procedures available. Especially given that there are both surgical and non-surgical body contouring options. We understand how it can quickly get overwhelming.

Since there is no one-size-fits-all answer, we always recommend scheduling a consultation at Avant Aesthetics and discussing your options with our own Dr. Perry Liu.
