Body sculpting is the term given to a cosmetic procedure that encompasses a variety of surgical approaches to reduce areas of body fat and reshape the body to create a slimmer, more contoured look. If you would like to tighten your tummy, arms, thighs, or other areas, body sculpting in Virginia can be a viable option to achieve the appearance you are looking for. This is an excellent choice if you have maximized other avenues such as diet and exercise to shrink problem areas.
Many body sculpting procedures involve surgery, so it is essential to schedule a consultation with highly-respected plastic surgeon Dr. Troy Pittman in order to learn the facts, benefits, and potential risks of these procedures. If you are looking to re-contour body areas, are looking to reduce excess skin or body fat, or you are a recent mother who wants to get back into pre-pregnancy shape, body sculpting might be just what you need.
A tummy tuck is a body sculpting surgery for Virginia patients who wish to remove excess fat and skin from the abdomen. For those who have lost a considerable amount of weight, a circumferential abdominoplasty, which involves removing skin from around the waistline in the back as well, is possible.
If you are looking to shed excess fat from the buttocks, hips, or thighs, liposuction is the most common procedure used by cosmetic surgeons. But liposuction alone will not take away excess skin from around these areas. This where the lift procedures can play a role.
When excess fat is removed from an area of your body, loose skin is often left behind, and a thigh lift can tighten the skin in the targeted area to leave you more toned and appealing. You can also elect to get an arm lift (known as a brachioplasty) to excise the fat the droops down next to the armpit.
The more advanced VASER liposuction can also remove fat but with less bruising and swelling on the targeted areas.
A total body lift can serve as a full makeover if you have lost a considerable amount of weight, and helps remove overall excess skin, fat, and cellulite. This procedure helps reshape the upper and lower body and often requires several surgeries spaced at different intervals to achieve desired results. This is a popular body contouring choice in Virginia among women who have recently given birth or who are done having children. A “mommy makeover” allows for a full revitalization of the post-pregnancy body and can reinvigorate your body structure to look like the form of your youth.
Body sculpting can help you attain the body shape and features that you desire, but as with any surgery, there are risks, and some of the listed procedures may leave scars or bruises. They also require anesthesia and, in some cases, a certain amount of downtime to recover. Dr. Pittman will speak to you about all of these factors and learn your personal health history to confirm if you are cleared to undergo a procedure. We have an extensive post-operation plan that is aimed at keeping you healthy and satisfied.
