Body Contouring And Excess Skin Removal By Surgery

Body countouring is desired by a wide range of patients with vastly different goals and body types.  Often the ideal contour is achieved with a combination of procedures to tighten skin, and others to change the contour of an area (for example, liposuction to remove an unwanted bulge, or fat transfer to enhance the contour of an area).

There are literally dozens of different procedures for patients who desire body contouring. During consultation with a plastic surgeon the patient will learn about the different procedures and their unique benefits and limitations.

Excess skin removal

Patients who have successfully lost a significant amount of weight often are burdened by excess skin that will not tighten despite routine excercise and toning regimens. Surgical options to remove excess skin include including upper arm surgery (“brachioplasty”), thigh lift surgery, removal of excess skin from the trunk (“belt lipectomy”), removal of excess abdominal skin (“abdominoplasty”) and breast lift surgery (“mastopexy”).

During the consultation Dr. Andrade will examine each area of concern and describe the treatment options, healing time, risks and benefits in detail. Depending on the amount of surgery required, it may be recommended to perform your operations in two or more stages.
