Body contouring is a way for women and men who have exhausted other methods of diet and exercise to contour and tone specific areas of the body. Typically, excess skin and fat is removed from targeted areas of the body.

While body contouring is never a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle, it can help improve the body shape for people who find that the pounds won’t budge from certain areas. For instance, my Los Angeles tummy tuck patients choose the procedure to remove unwanted fat and tissue, while tightening the underlying abdominal muscles.

Below is some basic information about body contouring:

  • Body contouring can help create a smooth body shape.
  • Procedures such as a tummy tuck can help remove excess skin and tissue from areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.
  • After significant weight loss, body contouring procedures can be particularly helpful for removing excess skin to reveal a slimmer shape.
  • There are various body lifting procedures that exist for almost every area of the body – legs, abdomen, buttocks, back, arms, and chest.

Body contouring can consist of several procedures, but at the end of the day, all are meant to reshape and contour the body. The best way to see if you are a candidate is to talk with your surgeon.
