Body Contouring

Thinking of Body Contouring in India? You must know these things before opting for this surgery. Body contouring is a reconstructive plastic surgery that removes sagging skin and extra fat from the body. It leads to improved shape and tone of tissue resulting in major weight loss.

Why Undergo Body Contouring Surgery?

When you wish to lose weight and don’t want the skin to shrink back fully, in this case, undergoing body-contouring surgery might be a help. This surgery is performed in stages and takes months or even years to complete the process. The targeted areas include breasts, upper arms, groin, thighs, abdomen and buttock.

There are certain things that you need to do before undergoing this surgery:

  • Stabilizing Weight: It should be your goal before three months to have a constant weight by correcting all nutrition deficiencies

  • Prioritize the area of the body that bothers you most and concentrate to have surgery there first.

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle before surgery like stop smoking, drinking and increase the intake of protein.

The Procedure of Body Contouring

Surgeons generally use general anaesthesia. The surgeon tries to make cuts within natural skin folds. Depending on your circumstances, your surgeon might recommend a different type of contouring surgeries like:

Thigh Lift: In this surgery, a cut is made into the groin that runs down the inner leg. Extra skin and fat are removed in that area.

Lower Body Lift: In this procedure excess skin is taken from the abdomen, buttocks, hips and outer thighs. In this procedure, cellulite is being removed giving a proper skin surface.

Breast Lift: The lollipop-shaped series of cuts are made around the breast and excess skin is removed giving a proper shape to the breast.

Arm Lift: Cut is made on the inner surface of the upper arm of the armpit to remove extra skin. This gives tightened and smooth skin to the upper arm.

After Effects of Body Contouring Surgery

After the operation, you can expect a drainage tube in the wound that helps to prevent fluid build-up. Also, you might be given some medications to reduce pain and bruising. At home, you might be asked to take proper rest and avoid exercise for at least the next few weeks.

Immediately after the surgery, you may see a change in your size of clothes. And the scars that happened because of surgery would fade with time. In short, you would see your motive to achieve a toned body is fulfilled.
