About Body Contouring

Unfortunately, most people's skin doesn’t stay young, firm, and elastic forever; over time excess skin develops and becomes loose, sagging, and droopy. Whether your loose skin is caused by aging, genetics, weight loss, or environmental factors, schedule a consultation to learn more about body contouring surgery at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA. Double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott offers body contouring surgery to remove loose, excess skin from multiple areas of the body so you can have a more youthful appearance with taut, healthy skin. Dr. Trott customizes each body contouring surgery treatment plant to the needs and goals of her patients, but some of the most common areas treated during surgery are the arms, stomach, hips, buttocks, and thighs. Body contouring surgery not only removes excess skin, but small amounts of stubborn fat are removed while the muscle and tissue are tightened for a smooth, well-contoured result. Stop wishing away the loose skin on your body and make an appointment to learn about body contouring surgery with Dr. Trott.

Best Candidates

Body contouring is performed to tighten, reshape, and contour areas of the body that you are not able to change naturally with diet and exercise. Areas that are most often treated include the arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees, and flanks. It is also performed on the face and neck. The ideal timing for body contouring is about a year after significant weight loss to allow the body to heal as much as possible on its own and ensure your weight remains stable. The plastic surgeon considers patient health, body areas, and other factors to ensure the patient will receive the best results. Body contouring is best for patients who are not planning future pregnancies, as the effect of the surgical toning will be minimized.

What to Expect

The overall surgical technique varies for each unique patient case. Traditionally, body contouring includes removing extra skin and reshaping the underlying tissue with minor liposuction to remove small pockets of fat. The duration of the surgery will depend on the case, and a hospital stay may be required to ensure a safe recovery. To minimize infection and avoid overwhelming the body's healing process, the surgeon may group the chosen procedures together into one single surgery or into two or more surgeries. Procedures are grouped and timed according to each patient’s personalized surgical plan. This staging reduces the overall surgical risk of complications. Most patients find that the recovery from this surgery is challenging, but visible improvements are likely seen early on to increase self-confidence in most patients, making the surgery well worth the effort.

Other Considerations

Like other major surgeries, body contouring will cause some scarring. The skilled body contouring plastic surgeon will consider scarring carefully in the overall surgical plan and place surgical incisions in less visible areas or in natural folds of the body. Post-surgical care and topical solutions for scar management are also provided to result in a quicker, healthier healing process. Most scars fade and blend with natural skin tone as time passes.
