Body ContouringConveniently located to serve Fairhope and Mobile, Alabama

Body contouring complaints include deficiencies or excess, such as generalized fat, localized fat deposits, loose skin and subcutaneous tissue, or cellulite. There are numerous companies claiming noninvasive cures for excessive fat and skin, but correction usually requires surgery, such as liposuction, lift and tuck (i.e. abdominoplasty, thigh plasty), or dermal lipectomy (excision of skin and fat). Contour deformities from insufficient soft tissue and fat in localized areas can be corrected with fat injection or augmentation with nearby tissue or an implant.

OUR BODY CONTOURING OPTIONS

Liposuction – This procedure is a precise way to remove excess fat from areas like the abdomen, back, buttocks, chest, upper arms, and thighs. After a tiny incision has been made, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted. It is used to loosen stubborn fatty tissue, which is removed through the tube using medical suction.
Abdominoplasty – Also called a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty removes sagging abdominal skin, tightens drooping muscles and sagging skin, and gets rid of stubborn fat. This contours the abdomen for a fit and toned look.
Back Contouring – This procedure trims excess fat and hanging skin from the patient’s back.
Buttock Contouring – This form of buttocks enhancement can be conducted using excess skin and fat removal, fat grafting from other areas of the body, or placement of an implant.
Chest Wall Contouring – To sculpt the chest wall, liposuction is typically performed to get rid of excess fat.
Thighplasty – This body-sculpting surgery eliminates excess hanging thigh skin and tightens the underlying tissues. Excess stubborn fat is also removed.
Knee and Lower Leg Contouring – Patients can sculpt areas of their legs below the thighs with this form of body contouring.
Arm Contouring – Thanks to arm contouring, or brachioplasty, patients can get rid of “bingo wings” hanging from their upper arms.
Dermal Lipectomy – With a dermal lipectomy, fatty tissue can be taken out and excess skin can be trimmed away. This results in tighter contours.
Correction of Contour Deformities – Contour deformities are regions that are lacking in volume, creating an unnatural appearance in contrast to the surrounding tissue. To correct this, tissue can be grafted from nearby areas. Excess fat can also be transferred from other areas to these regions via injection. Implants may be available to correct certain contour deformities.

Body Contouring

IS BODY CONTOURING RIGHT FOR ME?

Body contouring is appropriate for healthy individuals who are at or near their ideal body weight. Candidates must have realistic expectations from body contouring procedures.

Patients who could not effectively sculpt certain body parts using exercise and diet are excellent candidates for body contouring procedures.

Ideal candidates must be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a proper diet; this allows for lasting results.

YOUR CONSULTATION

During your consultation with Dr. Park or Dr. Rebowe, the two of you will discuss the areas you want to target with body contouring procedures. Your surgeon will evaluate your medical history and examine the areas you have chosen for body contouring.

Your surgeon will develop a treatment plan according to your goals. You can ask questions regarding the chosen procedures, and your surgeon will address any concerns.

THE PROCEDURE

The duration of the operation will depend on the procedures that were chosen. The surgery will start by administering anesthesia. Incisions will be made in the targeted areas. Once all contouring is complete, the incisions will be closed to end the surgery.

RECOVERY PERIOD

Depending on the chosen procedures, the patient can go home after the surgery and will undergo a recovery period. They may experience soreness and swelling in the treated areas for several days. Prescriptions and post-surgery instructions will be provided to aid in the healing process.

Results will be seen immediately after the procedure, but patients must wait until recovery is complete to see their full results.

BODY CONTOURING COST

The cost of the surgery will depend on the types of body contouring procedures being performed. The total price may be affected by anesthesia feels, the exact techniques being used, and the time required to perform the surgery.

For patients who are interested in financing options, consider CareCredit. CareCredit financing can make your body contouring procedure more affordable.
