Are you feeling self-conscious about excess sagging fat or skin due to a substantial amount of weight loss? From liposuction to medial thigh lifts, a customized body contouring procedure can improve the shape and tone of your underlying tissue and greatly improve your aesthetic appearance. 

Surgical body contouring procedures such as liposuction or a necklift are gaining popularity due to their effectiveness at helping patients restore more pleasing contours to their body and significantly improving their figure. If you are considering a body contouring procedure, some of your options include: 

  • Liposuction: This procedure involves sucking out small areas of localized fat that are resistant to a healthy diet and regular exercise. Liposuction can be used on many areas of the body, including hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks. 

  • Abdominoplasty: An abdominoplasty removes excess skin and fat around your abdomen that can’t be eliminated through diet or exercise. It is ideal for those who have been affected by pregnancy or massive weight loss. 

  • Medial thigh lift. A medial thigh lift is used to remove excess skin in the thigh area and tighten any sagging muscles, greatly improving the appearance of your lower body. 

  • Brachioplasty: Also known as an arm lift, a brachioplasty will tighten, smoothen, and contour your upper arm area.

Am I a Good Candidate For Body Contouring? 

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, body contouring procedures such as liposuction are a safe and effective way of helping patients achieve a better proportioned and more attractive figure. 

While it’s always best to book a consultation before undergoing any surgery, typically, good candidates for body contouring procedures are those that are: 

  • Healthy with no medical conditions that can impair healing or increase surgical risks
  • At a stable weight 
  • Non-smokers
  • Dedicated to living a healthy lifestyle including sticking to the right diet and regular exercise 
  • Able to demonstrate a positive and realistic outlook for what body contouring can achieve 

Why Maintaining a Stable Weight is So Important Before and After Body Contouring 

Before you decide to undergo a procedure such as abdominoplasty or liposuction, you have to ensure that your weight is stabilized and that you are living a healthy life. This is because: 

  • If you lose weight after your procedure, sagging pockets will return 
  • If you rapidly gain weight back, it will cause stress to your skin, resulting in visible stretch marks and scars 



Body Contouring Consultation: What to Expect and How to Prepare 

A body contouring consultation is a very important aspect of your procedure. By being completely honest and open during this conversation with your plastic surgeon, you can ensure the safety and success of your treatment. 

During this consultation, be prepared to discuss: 

  • Why you want the surgery 
  • Your expectations and desired outcome of the treatment 
  • The different body contouring options available
  • Your medical history and any medical conditions/drug allergies you have 
  • Your lifestyle habits, such as the use of tobacco, alcohol, or other drugs
  • If you’ve had any other surgeries before 

You should also expect that your plastic surgeon may discuss: 

  • Your general health status or any other pre-existing health conditions 
  • Taking measurements of your body and photographs for your medical record
  • The different body contouring options for you and recommend the best one for your lifestyle and needs
  • The outcomes of the surgery
  • Any risks or potential complications of body contouring surgery
