Bariatric surgery, dieting, or pregnancy can lead to significant weight loss which leaves loose skin behind. This loose skin, after major weight loss, is removed and the body is tuned with the help of body contouring procedures. Also known as body sculpting, body contouring is a broad term that refers to surgical and nonsurgical body contouring procedures to improve the shape of the body by removing excess skin and tissue. Moreover, these surgeries help to remove excess skin, re-contour the body, and tighten the skin.
Types of Surgeries
Body contouring surgical procedures include panniculectomy, abdominoplasty, liposuction, lower body lift, Brachioplasty, or buttock augmentation.
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure in which suction technique is used to remove stubborn fat that has not responded to diet and exercise. It is the most popular and best procedure performed all over the world. This procedure can be performed on the belly, hips, thighs, back, buttocks, arms, face, and under the chin. There are different liposuction techniques, namely Tumescent liposuction, Ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and Laser-assisted liposuction. The total recovery time is 4 to 5 weeks. Many patients can return to work after 7 to 10 days of recovery.
During abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, the excess fat is removed and abdominal muscles are tightened. This surgery is suitable for men and women who are in good health. There are two types of abdominoplasties - Complete Abdominoplasty and Partial Abdominoplasty. It takes six weeks for a full recovery. In Complete Abdominoplasty, the surgeon will cut the abdomen from one hipbone to other to remove excess skin, tissue, and fat as needed. Post-surgery patients may have drainage tubes under the skin for a few days. Partial abdominoplasty is performed on people with fat deposits below the navel.
03. Breast Rejuvenation
Breast rejuvenation includes breast reduction, breast lift, and breast augmentation. If a patient has large breasts that are out of shape and causes back pain, neck pain, or other problems, then doctors suggest breast reduction surgery. It is a surgical procedure to remove extra fat, tissue, and skin from breasts. Also known as Mastopexy, a breast lift is a surgical procedure to treat sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape the breast. Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery technique to increase breast size by placing breast implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles.
Commonly known as arm lift, Brachioplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat between the armpit and elbow. This can make upper arms look smoother and toned.
05. Buttock Lift
Butt lift is a cosmetic procedure that involves the transfer of fat to improve the appearance of the buttocks. It is suited for individuals who faced a loss of buttock volume and got loose and excess skin in the region.
06. Inner Thigh Lift
Also known as thighplasty, a thigh lift is a surgical procedure to remove sagging skin from the inner thigh. It is performed in patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and have sagging skin on the inner thighs.
A panniculectomy is an invasive surgical procedure to remove excess skin (known as pannus) and tissue from the lower abdomen.& Also known as nonsurgical fat reduction, non-surgical body contouring procedures reduce or remove excess fat to shape and contour the body. These treatments are based on any of these four principles - Cryolipolysis, radiofrequency lipolysis, laser lipolysis, and injection lipolysis

The patient may need to stay overnight in the hospital after body contouring procedures. There may be soreness during the first few weeks. There will be surgical drains at the surgical site to remove excess fluid or blood. The patient may be required to wear a compression garment for 6 to 8 weeks. The discomfort post-procedure may last for 4 weeks and full recovery may take several months.
