Diet and exercise can transform your body in many ways, but some areas won’t respond to traditional weight loss methods. “Love handles” and other body parts tend to accumulate fat more than others, and these issues are harder to work on if you’re genetically predisposed to a curvier figure. Your age can also play a role in stubborn fatty areas because it’s more challenging to lose weight as you get older.
When a healthy lifestyle doesn’t get you to your goal figure, body contouring through plastic surgery or nonsurgical treatments such as CoolSculpting can help you reach your cosmetic goals. Our board-certified plastic surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Center offer tummy tuck, liposuction, CoolSculpting or mommy makeover, which combines several procedures to improve your body shape. You’ll not only look better but will feel better too as you enjoy your workouts and activities unencumbered by loose skin and jiggling fat.
Eliminate Loose, Sagging Skin
Abdominoplasty is one of the most popular body contouring procedures. This plastic surgery is great for men and women at or near their goal weight with loose, sagging abdominal skin. A tummy tuck removes that excess skin and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles, in addition to eliminating residual fat to give you that flat stomach you’ve been working toward through diet and exercise.
Enhance Your Body Shape by Reducing Stubborn Areas of Fat
Liposuction is performed on most body areas, from your chin to your ankles. The abdomen, “love handles,” arms and back are some of the most commonly treated areas. The procedure surgically removes unwanted fat cells permanently. While you can still gain weight in other areas, the removed fat cells are gone for good.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical option for improving your body shape that works through a process called cryolipolysis. This treatment freezes and kills the fat cells in the treated area (such as the abdomen and thighs), which your body filters out through the lymphatic system in the coming months. CoolSculpting does not provide the immediate, dramatic results that liposuction can deliver. Still, it offers non-invasive body contouring for those with moderate amounts of stubborn fat.
Transform Your Figure with a Mommy Makeover
Mommy makeover is the term for various plastic surgeries combined to restore your body after pregnancy and childbirth. Breast surgery, tummy tuck and liposuction are often used to tighten stretched abdominal muscles, remove sagging skin and lingering fat and lift or enhance the breasts. The procedure is customized to suit your needs.
