What Body Contouring Reveals

Body contouring is about reshaping various parts of the body, which need to be enhanced or altered, in order to achieve a more youthful appearance. Body contouring involves a combination of surgeries, occasionally combined with liposuction as needed, to tighten up areas of the body particularly prone to loose, saggy skin.  Various procedures performed under the domain of body contouring include:

  • body contouring in San Diego, CA Tummy tuck
  • Breast augmentation
  • Buttock lift
  • Upper arm lift

The reason these areas need attention is that, as we age, our skin loses its elasticity and underlying volume. It also becomes drier. Also, excessive weight gain and loss, from pregnancy, for example, will stretch the skin and it can’t return to its former degree of tautness. The result? Sagging. That’s where body contouring comes in.

Body contouring procedures are not a panacea, however. Fat once gained and lost can be gained again. Such weight gains will deposit fat and stretch skin just as it did before. So, it’s paramount for body contouring patients to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle following their surgeries.
