Have you tried everything to achieve your dream body and still can’t get the results you’re looking for? This is completely normal and men and women alike struggle with body positivity because of it. If you could fix your body concerns with a procedure and go about your life, wouldn’t you do it? Below you will find five body contouring options to help relieve some of your daily stress.
Liposuction for Fat Removal
Liposuction is an invasive body contouring procedure to help remove stubborn fat from different areas of the body such as the lower stomach, thighs, buttocks, or even under the chin. Your surgeon will administer anesthesia. He/she will use a wand like tool, called a cannula, to loosen the fat through a small incision. After loosening the fat, it is then sucked out. It will leave behind a cleaner, more contoured appearance.
While liposuction procedures jumped 5% from 2017 to 2018, not everyone is an ideal candidate for Liposuction. If you are in good health and within 30% of your ideal weight, you should speak with a board-certified plastic surgeon to see if liposuction is the right procedure for your body goals.
Tummy Tuck for Stubborn Belly Fat and Stretch Marks
Tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can remove stubborn fat and excess skin from the lower abdomen, while tightening the abdominal muscles. This is a popular procedure for women following pregnancy, where the abdominal muscles can often become weak and the skin loose.
During a tummy tuck, your doctor will place you under anesthesia and make an incision along the bottom of your stomach, lining your pubic bone, not unlike a c-section scar. A second incision will be made around your navel. Your doctor will then be able to access your abdominal muscles and suture them together, making them tighter. Following this, your doctor will then pull your skin back down. This will allow for excess skin removal. It will oftentimes remove parts of the skin on the stomach that is affected by stretch marks.
Tummy tucks are ideal for people near their target weight who are struggling with achieving the aesthetic they want, often due to previous stress on the stomach tissues and sagging skin from excess weight gain or loss, or pregnancy.
Butt Augmentation for a Balanced Figure
We all have our qualms about our body. For some, it’s not being happy with the way they fill out their jeans. Through different butt augmentation procedures, your plastic surgeon is able to give you a backside to be envious of, without the hours of squatting and continuous pressure on your knees.
Brazilian Butt Lift
The Brazilian Butt Lift is a “fat-grafting” procedure designed to transfer fat from an unwanted area of the body to the buttocks, for a curvier and more sensational figure. This procedure begins with liposuction to remove the fat from other areas of the body. Then, the surgeon will transfer the fat to your buttocks until you reach the desired volume.
Sculptra Butt Lift
The Sculptra Butt Lift is a non-invasive, in and out procedure that will fill your figure by using a poly-l-lactic acid injectable treatment designed to stimulate collagen production. This treatment differs from other invasive procedures, by working with your body to produce natural results.
Similar to a breast augmentation, butt implants will achieve your desired curves by placing silicone implants into or on top of your muscles. This procedure is more invasive than the Brazilian or Sculptra Butt Lift. However, you will go into surgery knowing the exact size and shape of your future derrière.
Mommy Makeovers for a Full Body Makeover
“Mommy Makeover” is a term used for a combination of the body contouring procedures listed above to target most areas that are affected post-pregnancy. Depending on your specific concerns, you can choose which procedures to combine to get your body back to a place where you feel more comfortable and confident.
With the help of your plastic surgeon, you will determine which procedures are a good fit for you. You can create your custom makeover by choosing a combination of procedures. These combinations can be the breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction or Brazilian Butt lift.
While Mommy Makeovers make sense for the after-effects of pregnancy, this body combo is not just for mothers. While you should be done having children and don’t anticipate any more pregnancies, this serves as a great tool to etch out your perfect body in fewer sessions.
Maybe stubborn fat is not your worry. Instead, you may fret about the appearance of one or more skin imperfections. Velashape is a non-invasive procedure for cellulite reduction. This painless procedure can help to enhance your body in a way that you may have not thought possible.
Velashape uses a combination of infrared light and radiofrequency energy to stimulate the target areas. The procedure helps to minimize fat cells but will not damage your skin. The surgeon will do Velashape over several treatments and can combine it with liposuction for a thin and rejuvenated appearance.
