Enhance Your Weight Loss Results With Body Contouring Treatments
You may feel healthier and better about yourself after losing substantial amounts of weight, but your skin and tissue aren’t elastic enough to support your reduced size, which creates a sagging appearance around the body. Thanks to the innovation of body contouring treatments, you can address your excess skin so you can look your best after losing weight.
Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa in New Orleans, LA, offers a body contouring solution that removes excess skin and fat from your body. During your consultation with Dr. Heath Charvet, he and the rest of the team can help you find a contouring plan you can trust.
How does body contouring work?
Body contouring is a process that sculpts the body to create a slimmer and more natural-looking shape. It works to create a defined profile while clearing out excess skin and fat that might remain following your weight loss.
Whether it is from years of dieting or a medical procedure, weight loss can be difficult at times. It could entail hundreds of pounds in the most significant cases. Your skin will have expanded enough to where it will start sagging after you lose that excess weight. But the body contouring process at Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa in New Orleans, LA will help you reshape your body after your weight loss.
What steps work in body contouring?
Body contouring can work around almost any part of your body that has developed sagging skin following weight loss. It can tone the areas in the midsection, arm, leg, or even the neck and chin. These regions can be sensitive, but the Magnolia Plastic Surgery and MedSpa team will be there to help you with whatever contouring needs you have.
The body contouring process can entail a few steps:
- General anesthesia is applied at the start to keep the patient comfortable.
- A small incision works in a targeted area. The incision is minimal while ensuring it can be covered with clothing or from natural body movements.
- Excess fat cells may be removed from the body during the process. In other situations, the skin may be pulled upward to create a firm look without creating a sagging effect.
- The incision is closed off, and the patient is sent home to begin the healing process. Sometimes, a procedure will be significant enough to where an overnight stay is necessary, although that point is for the most significant processes.
How long does the body contouring recovery process take?
The recovery process will vary by patient. You can expect to feel sore in the treated area for about a month after the procedure. You should be able to return to your work schedule about two weeks after the process, although you should avoid stressful or rough activities for a few weeks after that.
Your body will develop its contoured shape in a few months after the process. You can schedule a follow-up visit to review how your body is responding to the procedure.
