Investing in a good gym with an availability of good trainer could be a good idea, but generally people are not able to sustain this for long-term due to body pain and other medical conditions. Sometimes when we try to maintain our fitness record our laziness knocks us down.

Now the question then arises what to do and how to eliminate this stubborn fat forever.

Body Contouring could be a real turning point in your life to answer this nagging question. It can help you go get the desired shape which has been a dream of yours for so long. The perfect way to say bye to all that unwanted fat!

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a combination of several processes to remove the fat from the different parts of the body as desired by the patient. This technique is a surgical procedure and the patients can get respite from their untoned body under the expert guidance of a trained cosmetic surgeon.

Below are few types of body contouring which cosmetic surgeons use depending upon their patient’s needs:

1) Liposuction

Liposuction is a method of extracting excessive fatty coat from your body. It is also known as lipoplasty. This surgical procedure helps in the removal of fat from the patient’s body like love handles, abdomen, thighs, arms, chin etc.

There are few methods which are technically used by plastic surgeons in Liposuction.

  • a) Tumescent liposuction
  • b) Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)
  • c) Laser-assisted liposuction

2) Tummy Tuck

Every woman has a dream to have a beautifully maintained figure. But in this hectic and unbalanced lifestyle, it is very difficult to manage the shape of the body. Most of the times you have to avoid your favorite dress or sometimes you hesitate to attend the parties just because of your anatomy.

Managing figure is not an easy task. Massive weight loss, muscle weakness, numerous pregnancies or genetics are some of the major reasons which can lead to loose, wrinkled abdominal skin and surplus fat in the lower abdomen. Sometimes regular exercise and special diet plan fail to work for this particular part of the body.

If your daily routine efforts failed to transform your shape then the best option would be to go for TUMMY TUCK (Abdominoplasty).

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is a cosmetic surgical procedure. In this process excess skin and fat is removed from the lower abdomen to reshape the belly portion in a well-maintained figure.

Depending on the requirement, it is broadly of three types:

MINIABDOMINOPLASTY ( SHORT SCAR TECHNIQUE): In this procedure, smaller incision is given over the pubic area to remove the extra fat from the lower portion of the abdomen after stretching the skin downwards.

EXTENDED ABDOMINOPLASTY ( LIPOABDOMINOPLASTY): In this process, an incision is given from hip to hip, just top of the pubic area. Then a cut is made to release the navel portion from the covered skin, belly button repositioned and skin redraped.

CIRCUMFERENTIAL ABDOMINOPLASTY: In this, the incision goes around the trunk, allowing maximal soft tissue removal from abdomen, flanks, back and hips.

3) Arm Lift

Another procedure that people go for in body contouring is Arm Lift.

This is the process of elimination of excessive skin and fat from the arms which start looking disproportionately odd due to all that unwanted tissue excess.

It is an out patient procedure which can be done under local anaesthesia with sedation or general anaesthesia, depending upon medical condition of the patient.

A long or a short incision on the area that needs correction is given thereby removing the excessive sagging of the skin. Post operatively, a compression garment is supposed to be worn for 4-6 weeks.

An arm lift tightens the upper arm which is otherwise not usually possible through exercise.

4) Full Body Lift

This one is for those people who have lost excessive weight through surgery or exercise. Such massive weight loss often leaves people with obstinately sagging skin and uneven fat depots on various parts of the body. So even after losing all that weight they still are unable to get into their favorite outfits due to all that cascading and loose skin. Full body lift is an exceptional body contouring procedure for such people. A person may choose to go for upper, mid or lower body lift depending upon the presence of excess sagging skin. The cosmetic surgeon usually discusses the extent of the surgery and the number of sessions required as per the case examination. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and every session lasts for approximately 3-8 hours.
