What is Body Contouring?
Body Contouring is a procedure used to alter the remaining underlying tissue, remove any additional undesired fat deposits, and remove excess skin to give a firm, healthy, and youthful contour to your body. It is the final step of successfully losing large amounts of weight.
Who is a Body Contouring Candidate?
Successful weight loss is an exciting achievement. Excess weight, however, is composed of more than just fatty deposits. When the excess fat has been lost, often times there is remaining underlying tissue that was previously used to support the fat deposits, as well as excess skin. Especially for older persons, the remaining excess skin has lost elasticity and appears loose or saggy.
The most viable candidates are persons who have excess skin, underlying tissue, and undesired fatty deposits after successful and stabilized weight loss. It very is important that candidates for body contouring to be committed to living a healthy and active lifestyle after the procedure. If you are unsure about your commitment to a healthy lifestyle, discuss with Dr. Paydar what options are available to you. Smokers and individuals with medical conditions that may impede the healing process of this operation may not qualify to receive the body contouring procedure.
