Body sculpting surgery can get rid of excess fat and skin, tighten loose skin, and help re-contour the body in order to roll back the effects of aging and weight loss. Body sculpting in Maryland is the preferred treatment for patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight and wish to remove extra skin or tissue, and is also an option if you are looking to achieve a particular body shape by targeting specific areas. Dr. Troy Pittman is the best Board-certified plastic surgeon to see if you want to tighten your tummy, thigh, arms, or other body parts.
What Kinds of Body Sculpting Procedures are Available?
Dr. Pittman was named one of the best plastic surgeons in the region by Modern Luxury DC Magazine, and offers numerous local body sculpting surgeries in our fully-accredited, state-of-the-art and private surgical suite. Our helpful staff can provide further information about any surgery you are considering, from arm lifts to tummy tucks.
Arm Lifts (Brachioplasty) and Thigh Lifts
A brachioplasty removes excess skin from the upper arms via surgery, liposuction, or both. Thigh lift surgery, meanwhile, can reshape your thighs by removing excess skin and fat, providing improved contours and proportions to the inner and outer thighs.
Mommy Makeover/Overall Body Makeover
For women who have given birth and are dissatisfied with their post-pregnancy look, a “mommy makeover” or an overall body procedure can help address several areas, such as the abdomen, breasts, or thighs. Depending on the patient and the areas of concern, several surgeries may be needed to produce desired results. Dr. Pittman is a well-respected breast surgeon who can help you love your body again even after having children.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
Tummy tucks are a popular option if you have lost a lot of weight, or for moms who have gone through a pregnancy and have tried everything to get back to their “pre-baby” form. A tummy tuck procedure can remove excess skin and fat, and restore weakened muscles to produce a smoother, more toned look to the abdomen.
This technique is the most common fat removal procedure used in body sculpting. Although it generally involves general anesthesia, it can be performed as an out-patient procedure. For a higher impact in fat removal, you may consider the more advanced VASER liposuction, which comes with less bruising and swelling.
What Does the Recovery Look Like for Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting surgery in Maryland does involve general anesthesia, and the primary risks of surgery include anesthetic reactions, slow healing, and risk of infection. Some surgeries require drains to remove excess fluid or blood, and others may require you to wear compression garments for several weeks. Depending on the procedure, there may be some discomfort, and full recovery could take up to several weeks. As with any surgery, there will be some scarring but the scars are typically small and easily hidden under clothing. Dr. Pittman will go over your health history prior to any surgery for a risk assessment. Once you are approved for the procedure, he and our staff will provide concierge-level service in order to keep you safe and informed.
