If you are unsatisfied or self-conscious about the shape or appearance of your body, cosmetic surgery can be the key to feeling great about the way your body looks.
Body sculpting surgery can give you the back the youthful shape you used to have, or it can give you the contours you have always wanted.
Whether you need to remove excess skin after weight loss or you need to get rid of stubborn fat deposits, the board certified cosmetic surgeons of The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery will help you select which procedures are right for your body goals.
Some common procedures to renew and reshape your body include:
- Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) – removes excess skin and fat from the abdomen while tightening abdominal muscles for a smooth, flat tummy.
- Liposuction (including VASER® Lipo) – safely removes fatty tissue from the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and other areas.
- Body Lift– similar to Tummy Tuck technique, but extends to smooth and tighten skin around the hips and buttocks.
- Mommy Makeover – combines several procedures to reverse unwanted effects of pregnancy.
These procedures, alone or in combination, can dramatically improve your overall body contours and can be targeted to address specific areas all over the body. Our Northern Virginia cosmetic surgeons will recommend the procedure or procedures that will best transform the body you have now into the body you dream of having.
If you are in good general health, but are unhappy with any aspect of your body’s shape or appearance, you are a good candidate for body sculpting surgery.
While there are limits to each procedure and candidates should approach any surgery with realistic expectations, there is no question that body sculpting surgery has the potential to dramatically improve your appearance.
For some procedures, such as breast augmentation, you must be 18 years of age (21 for silicone implants) so that the surgery does not interfere with natural growth and development.
Other procedures are available to healthy people of any age who simply want their body to reflect the youthful, attractive personality they have inside.
Any surgical procedure comes with a certain degree of risks, which can be minimized by choosing an expert cosmetic surgeon and by closely following your surgeon’s post-operative guidelines.
Some common risks of body sculpting surgery include bruising, swelling, and infection at the incision site. Your surgeon will inform you of all the risks of any procedure you choose, and your post-operative checkups are crucial for addressing any adverse effects as quickly as possible.
