Are you right for body contouring?
You have probably wondered if body contouring is right for you. It could be, under the right conditions. So, whether you are self-conscious about a muffin top or love handles or you’ve wanted liposuction to sculpt your thighs or you’re looking for a way to get rid of postpartum saggy skin, find out if this procedure is the right choice for you.
What is body contouring?
Body contouring is any procedure that improves your profile. Sometimes it is called body sculpting because these procedures allow you to “sculpt” your body shape by removing excess fat and excess skin. There are many forms of body contouring procedures, including both surgical and non-surgical procedures. However, these surgical procedures tend to produce more dramatic results.
Due to the nature of a surgical procedure, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Your surgeon will take your health history and examine it to determine if body contouring is right for you. But in general, these four signs may indicate that this procedure is right for you.
1. You have excess skin after a considerable weight loss
Losing weight requires hard work and dedication, and if you’ve put forth the effort to lose weight, it can be frustrating to see saggy skin that does not respond well to diet or exercise. Thankfully, procedures such as abdominoplasty can eliminate unwanted skin. Body contouring is also a useful way to manage stubborn pockets of fat and saggy skin after pregnancy.
2. You’re already close to your goal weight
The ideal candidate follows a healthy, well-balanced diet and exercises regularly. Even after your treatment, it is advised to continue these healthy habits so that you can maintain your results. Liposuction and tummy tucks can help you slim your thighs or create a sleek new profile, but there’s a catch. The perfect candidate is already within 15-20% of your goal / ideal weight. This allows the procedure to make the biggest impact and transform your body into the sculpted body you’ve always wanted.
3. You have positive, realistic goals
Body sculpting is a personal decision. It should only be done if you want it. This procedure is not a way for you to meet the aesthetic goals that someone else has for you; it is a way for you to meet your goals.
4. You are not a smoker
Smoking plays a role in recovery from any surgery. It can delay healing; it also negatively affects your circulation. Therefore, the ideal body contouring candidate is a non-smoker.
