Body Contouring Candidates

Unlike breast or face procedures, body contouring is aimed at the concerns of the belly, back, hips, waist, upper arms, buttocks, and thighs. You may have worked hard to tone your body but find that certain areas simply don’t respond to weight loss and exercise, or have become quite saggy after significant weight loss. It is exactly these issues that body contouring is well-suited to correcting.

There are many types of body shaping procedures. Overall, most of these procedures target:

  • Excess skin
  • Excess fat
  • Hanging or sagging skin
  • Loose, puffy tissue
  • Lack of shape
  • Lack of definition

The right one for you will depend on the area of your body you want to modify, as well as the exact concern, whether it’s fat, skin, or both. Dr. Kleto will help you choose.

These surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. Most of them are outpatient procedures, so you will be able to go back home after a period of supervised recovery. One of the reasons body contouring remains so popular is because the results are effective, and they also last a long time. Although it is of course still possible to gain new weight, and the effects of aging will also impact your physique, in general the results achieved with body contouring are permanent in the sense that the skin and fat that is removed is gone for good.

In certain situations, a procedure can be combined with another one, in order to achieve optimal results in a single surgical appointment. But you will have to consult Dr. Kleto about combining procedures first, so that he can make sure it is the best and safest option for you.
