The ideal male and female body shapes are considered to be firm, youthful and athletic-looking. However, many conditions can contribute to weak tissue and fatty areas, including weight changes, pregnancy, aging, sun damage and hereditary factors. Body contour surgery can improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin, resulting in restored body shape, skin appearance and skin tone.
One or more procedures may be recommended to achieve your goals for a more youthful, contoured body. Procedures may include a tummy tuck, body lifts, liposuction or the lifting and tightening of skin anywhere it is loose and sagging. While patient results are unique to their own situations, healing and anatomy, the results of body contouring may be visible almost immediately with final results developing over the course of several months.
