All About Body Contouring Surgery

The perfect body is one of the epitomes of beauty and a majority of us desire it. A full body contouring surgery has fulfilled the wishes of several people who crave for the ideal body. This surgery involves eradicating excess fat in the body. Additionally, it provides the body that you yearn for. Moreover, it also entails the tightening of certain areas of the body especially after a thorough weight loss program which may expose the skin and make it sag. The following procedures are some of the processes that are involved in body contouring.

Abdominoplasty:

One of the processes that are involved in body contouring surgery or body sculpting is the mini tummy tuck procedure. This modified procedure involves the removal of surplus fat and tightens the muscles in the lower abdomen. This process is a deviation of the abdominoplasty process. However, it is performed by making an incision that resembles the Cesarean section one near the pubic region.

The difference between the mini process and the complete one is that the full procedure concentrates on the entire abdomen while the mini one deals with the lower abdomen only. In addition to this, the complete procedure also involves dealing with loose skin in the entire abdominal area. Recovering from these procedures may take a minimum of two weeks if your abdominal muscles are still strong.

Although this procedure is not normally done under anesthesia, it may cause some pain. However, some cosmetic surgeons recommend that their patients are administered with general anesthesia particularly if the individual requires surplus tightening of the muscles. Generally, the procedures might be costly. Nonetheless, there are some factors that determine the costs they include, the fat removal process, the extent of repairing the muscles, and skin removal. Therefore, one should put them into consideration when going for it.

Liposuction

Liposuction is the process of using suction to eradicate excess fat which may be found under an individual’s skin. This procedure is usually done on the face, abdomen, thighs, arms, and the buttocks. Liposuction is typically performed after the individual has failed to eliminate the excess fat in the body even after exercising and dieting. In addition to this, it is one of the most common cosmetic procedures that are performed in America. There are three types of liposuction that are dictated by the technique used to eradicate the fat.

Ultrasound-assisted

This type of liposuction utilizes the ultrasound machine. Through a special probe and pulsed energy, the cosmetic surgeon can get rid of the excess fat. However, this procedure is preferred in areas where a secondary liposuction procedure is being performed and for use with specific skin tones.

Sutures

This technique involves making small incisions and leaving them open. Consequently, the fluid will drain out with the fat. However, some surgeons prefer partial suturing and leaving the liquid to drain. As a result, the procedure may sometimes lead to many small injuries.

Power-Assisted

The power-assisted technique eradicates more volumes of fat as compared to the rest. It uses equipment that is quite easy to maneuver. However, it is usually used to eradicate fat during complicated and secondary situations. This procedure may also be used to drain fat that maybe transferred to other parts of the body.
