3. Body Contouring Surgery

"Body contouring surgery" describes a range of operations intended to reshape and tone the body. These procedures remove extra skin and fat, giving the body a more toned, sculpted appearance. Body contouring procedures are typically performed when the muscles and skin lose elasticity due to aging, pregnancy, or severe weight loss.

The most popular body contouring techniques provided by Medicana Health Group's plastic surgery departments are as follows:

A. Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical treatment that removes extra fat from specific body parts, including the arms, neck, back, hips, and thighs. A cannula, which is hollow and made of stainless steel, is introduced during the process through tiny skin incisions. The extra fat is then broken up and removed with the help of the cannula, leaving behind a more minor, more contoured appearance.

Tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and power-assisted liposuction are just a few methods available. The demands and objectives of each patient and the surgeon's choice and experience will determine the best approach.

Depending on the size of the treatment and the patient's comfort level, liposuction can be carried out under general anesthesia or local anesthetic combined with sedation. Most patients can resume their regular activities a week or two after surgery, which usually takes one to two hours to perform.

It should not be overlooked that it is not a weight loss surgery and should not be utilized in a pulsed healthy diet. Regular exercise should not be at or close to their optimal body weight but have pockets of stubborn fat that do not respond to diet, and exercise is the most outstanding candidate for liposuction. Furthermore, liposuction should not be utilized to cure stretch marks or cellulite because it does not affect these disorders.

However, liposuction can dramatically improve body contour when performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, boosting one's self-confidence and self-esteem. To find out if you are a good candidate for liposuction and to discuss your goals, it is crucial to have a consultation with a plastic surgeon if you are considering the operation.

B. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

The goal of a tummy tuck sometimes called an abdominoplasty, is to tighten the underlying abdominal muscles for a more toned and smoother appearance while removing extra skin and fat from the abdominal region. This operation is frequently carried out when the abdomen region may have loose skin or stretch marks due to severe weight loss, pregnancy, or aging.

During the surgery, an incision will be made from hip to hip down the lower abdomen. The cut is situated so that it will be concealed by clothing or swimwear. The skin is then raised to access the abdominal muscles underneath, and sutures are used to tighten the muscles. After removing extra skin and fat, the remaining skin is stitched together.

Recovery times for tummy tucks vary, but patients typically resume normal activities in two to three weeks. Adhering to all postoperative care instructions, including wearing a compression garment and refraining from intense activity for a predetermined time, is crucial to achieving the best results.

The effects of a tummy tuck can be spectacular and long-lasting, giving the abdomen a smoother, more toned appearance. The procedure can significantly increase self-esteem and confidence. It is crucial to schedule a consultation with a licensed and competent cosmetic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for a Tummy Tuck and discuss any questions or concerns.

C. Body Lift

A body lift tightens and restores the skin and underlying tissue on the thighs, hips, and abdomen. It is usually advised for people who have lost much weight or who have saggy skin from aging or other causes.

Usually, there are multiple steps involved in the Body Lift process. The surgeon first makes incisions strategically placed throughout the body to access the underlying tissue. Once extra skin and fat have been removed, the skin is tightened and repositioned. In some circumstances, the surgeon may additionally employ liposuction to sculpt the body further and eliminate any stubborn fat pockets that may still be present.

After the body has been reshaped, the incisions are stitched shut, and the patient is dressed in a compression garment to help with swelling and support the altered body shape. Typically, a Body Lift recovery period lasts for a few weeks. Patients are advised to rest and recover rather than engage in severe physical activity during this time.

It is crucial to remember that Body Lift is a severe process that entails risks similar to other surgical procedures, such as bleeding, infection, and adverse anesthetic reactions. However, the outcomes of Body Lift can be very satisfying for those looking to regain their confidence and ideal body form.

D. Thigh Lift

A surgical operation called a thigh lift, commonly referred to as a rhinoplasty, helps to improve the appearance of the thighs by removing extra skin and fat. It is frequently carried out on people whose skin has sagged and lost suppleness due to severe weight loss or aging. Depending on the individual's particular demands and objectives, the operation may target either the inner or outer thighs or both. Depending on the amount of skin to be removed and the desired outcomes, different incisions are created during the surgery. However, they are usually disguised in natural creases to reduce scars.

The thigh lift method is highly adaptable and may be customized to each patient's unique goals and body types. To achieve a smoother, more toned appearance, the surgeon will carefully remove extra skin and fat throughout the treatment and tighten the remaining skin. In some circumstances, excess fat deposits in the thighs can be eliminated via liposuction.

The effects of a thigh lift are often long-lasting as long as the patient maintains a constant weight and avoids future substantial swings. After the treatment, patients can usually resume their regular activities within a few weeks. However, the incisions may take several months to heal completely, and the swelling may take several weeks to go down.

E. Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a cosmetic treatment for drooping upper arm skin. It is generally performed on people who have lost weight or have aged-related problems with skin elasticity. During the operation, extra skin is removed, and the remaining skin is tightened to provide a more youthful appearance. The purpose of an arm lift is to give the upper arms a smoother, tighter, and more toned appearance.

Under general anesthesia, the process often lasts several hours. To allow for concealment by clothing, the incisions are done on the inside or rear of the arms. The patient must wear a compression garment after surgery to aid in healing and lessen swelling.

Recovery times vary but generally take two to three weeks. During this period, the patient is instructed to keep the incisions clean and dry and avoid intense activities like heavy lifting. After a few weeks, the patient can resume normal activities, and their arms look significantly better.

An arm lift can be the best option for you if you want to restore the appearance of your upper arms. The top-notch arm lift operations offered by Medicana Health Group's plastic surgery departments are performed by qualified and experienced plastic surgeons.

F. Buttock Lift

Butt Lift, commonly referred to as a buttock lift, is a cosmetic treatment used to contour and enhance the buttocks' look. It can address several issues, including asymmetry, volume loss, and sagging skin. People who have lost a large amount of weight and those whose skin has lost elasticity owing to aging or other circumstances frequently undergo this operation.

During surgery, they make skin incisions to remove extra skin and fat from the buttocks. The remaining skin is then tightened and realigned to appear more youthful. The buttocks may occasionally receive additional fat injections to increase volume and give a fuller, more rounded appearance.

Depending on the individual and the degree of correction required, a Buttock Lift may be performed using various techniques. To decide on the best course of action for the treatment, the plastic surgeon will evaluate the patient's skin quality, muscle tone, and the quantity of excess skin present during the consultation.

It usually takes several weeks for patients to recover from a buttock lift. During this time, they may experience pain, edema, and bruising. Therefore, adhering to the plastic surgeon's postoperative advice is crucial to guarantee an appropriate recovery and the best outcomes.

People who are generally in good health, have reasonable expectations, and want to improve the look of their buttocks may be good candidates for a buttock lift. The surgery can give the buttocks a more appealing and youthful contour, boost confidence, and improve overall attractiveness.

G. Medial Thigh Lift

A surgical operation called a medial thigh lift, often called an inner thigh lift, removes extra skin and fat from the inner thigh region. People who have lost a substantial amount of weight and have drooping skin are frequently advised to have the treatment, as do those who want to get a more toned and contoured look in their thigh region

Making an incision in the groin or inner thigh area and removing the extra skin and fat are standard steps in the treatment. The leftover skin is then pulled taut and stitched back into position, giving the area a smoother, younger appearance. Liposuction can help contour and shape the area further when combined with a thigh lift.

Bruising, swelling, and stiffness in the area are common throughout the recovery process after a medial thigh lift. To help the healing process and reduce swelling, patients may need to wear compression clothing for several weeks. Most people can return to work and other regular activities 2 to 4 weeks after surgery, but more demanding tasks should be avoided for a few weeks.

Generally, a medial thigh lift can give people a more contoured, toned appearance in the inner thigh area and increase their confidence and self-esteem. However, to decide if the operation is the best option, reviewing and discussing the potential risks and advantages with a licensed plastic surgeon is crucial.

H. Mommy Makeover

To assist a woman's body get back to its pre-pregnancy shape, a cosmetic surgery technique called a "Mommy Makeover" combines various surgical procedures. The specific operations that make up a Mommy Makeover may vary depending on the patient's wants and goals. However, they often combine breast surgery, such as a breast lift or augmentation, with body contouring procedures, such as a stomach tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, or body lift.

A Mommy Makeover aims to give women back their self-esteem and improve their body image after childbirth, which frequently leaves women with physical changes like sagging breasts, loose skin, and stubborn pockets of fat. This procedure can improve the proportion and symmetry of the body as a whole, restore a more youthful appearance, and produce a flatter, toned abdomen.

According to the number of procedures involved, Mommy Makeover surgeries are typically performed under general anesthesia and can last several hours. Patients can anticipate discomfort, edema, and bruising following surgery, but these side effects should disappear within a few days or weeks. Recovery times can also differ depending on the exact procedures involved, but many women can resume their regular daily activities and routines within a few weeks.

While Mommy Makeover can assist women in regaining their pre-pregnancy bodies, it should be noted that these activities should not be used in place of a balanced diet and regular exercise. Patients should have reasonable expectations for their surgery's outcomes and be in good general health.
