Elements of Body Contouring
Put simply, contouring is sculpting the body shape to maximize symmetry and beauty by toning the underlying muscle and tissue. Body contouring affects all parts of the body and includes an entire spectrum of procedures including buttock augmentation, breast lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, arm lifts, and abdominoplasty.
For all the choices, which one of these might be best for you?
Of course, the answer depends on the patient and his or her specific goals. Sometimes, multiple procedures performed simultaneously may be appropriate, such as a Mommy Makeover.
Selecting the right procedure or procedures begins with what you want to accomplish. Ideal candidates begin with the end in mind, which are specific goals as to what kind of changes they want to their forms.
Buttock Augmentation does not get a lot of press but is becoming more and more popular. As we age, our rears may start to look a bit dreary. A buttock enhancement is a great way to lift a sagging derriere to match the rest of your body.
An abdominoplasty, most commonly known as a tummy tuck, is a technique that can eliminate excess skin around the midsection. Many people have found that diet and exercise are effective ways to lose a ton of weight. Afterwards, the fat may be gone, but flaps of skin may remain. This procedure will tighten and firm up those new abs.
Like an abdominoplasty, an arm lift removes excess skin under the arm due to excessive weight loss or the natural effects of aging. Excess arm skin can cause irritation of the surrounding area by undue friction. An arm lift is a safe, effective way to reduce discomfort and help you look great in your new, smaller sized wardrobe!
Breast augmentation (or reduction) is a very popular procedure that can correct conditions caused by pregnancy, age, or underdevelopment. Breast reduction is a procedure for men and women that can alleviate physiological and psychological problems.
Whatever your personal goals, body contouring procedures can change your outlook and your life!
