Types Of Body Contouring

Good areas for body contouring procedures
The most common problem areas we see are flabby bellies and upper arms, and cellulite-riddled thighs, buttocks, and hips. All of the areas can be remedied through body sculpting. For patients who need to undergo an all-over body lift, we begin by focusing on the back and sides of the body, removing skin and fat. This might include a buttock lift and thigh lift. Then, excess skin and fat are removed from the belly and Dr. Nesmith works to reconstruct the abdominal wall.
Additional lifts, such as upper arm lifts and breast lifts, can be incorporated to help you achieve a more balanced body appearance.
Body sculpting is more than just liposuction because Dr. Nesmith uses his expertise to mold the remaining fat and tissue to provide you with your ultimate body. By sculpting the remaining fat deposits and tissue, you can have enhanced natural curves and still have a firm, sexy body. Once the sculpting is complete, Dr. Nesmith removes any excess skin and inserts stitches. This is to ensure that the skin covers the newly sculpted curves so that there is no risk of it becoming misshapen.
Body sculpting recovery
The length of recovery after a body sculpting procedure generally varies from patient to patient and depends on the type of procedure performed. Prior to leaving Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center, you will receive a custom recovery plan which includes information on how to care for incision sites and what pain medications can be taken.
Patients will be sore and experience swelling after a body sculpting procedure. It is recommended to have someone care for you in the first few days following cosmetic surgery procedures to help minimize discomfort and prevent the stitches from opening due to over-extending yourself.
Bandages may be applied after the surgery to help reduce swelling, and stitches are usually removed within 10 days. Patients are prohibited from playing sports or doing strenuous exercise for at least 6 weeks following a body sculpting surgery.
