If you have lost a significant amount of weight, you may have found that even though you feel lighter and more energetic, loose skin hides the underlying contour of the new you. Body contouring removes extra skin and soft tissue to allow you to fit into clothes better and improve your self esteem. Commonly targeted areas include arms, torso and thighs.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I have several procedures at the same time?
Sometimes, it may be possible to undergo a combined procedure such as arm and thigh lifts at the same time. However, a breast reduction and tummy tuck or lower body lift may best be done at separate times to enhance patient safety and decrease your risk of complications after surgery. The timing and combination that works best is individualized for each patient based upon your consultation with Dr. Jenq.
What is a Brazilian butt lift?
The Brazilian butt lift involves contouring the area of the waist and torso by liposuction. The micro droplets of fat from the liposuction are then carefully processed and placed into the buttocks in multiple planes using special fat transfer cannulas. Fat transfer increases the roundness and fullness of the buttocks, while liposculpture of other areas reshapes and smooths out fat stubborn pockets. If you have extra skin that overhangs along the lower torso, other techniques such as lower body and buttock lift with direct skin removal may be necessary.
