Body sculpting procedures produce a tighter, more defined body by removing excess fat while tightening the skin and muscles, giving you a sleeker, more streamlined body contour. At Menard Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Menard, and serving the Tuscaloosa area, you can choose from a variety of body sculpting procedures to tighten and define your body!
What are the Advantages of Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting, sometimes called body contouring, gets rid of bulges and bumps that seem to stick around after you’ve reached your ideal weight, and are not responding to a healthy diet and exercise. If you’re having trouble eliminating those last fatty bulges that have accumulated in certain problem areas, body sculpting can remove that excess fat and give you the streamlined body you desire. Body sculpting procedures treat such areas as the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, back, and pubic region, creating a smoother and tighter body contour while boosting confidence and self-esteem.
How Do Body Sculpting Procedures Work?
Body sculpting may include several procedures or combinations of treatments that remove fat from such problem areas of the body as love handles, thigh bulges, or bra bumps, usually by means of liposuction , leaving the body smoother and more streamlined, creating a looser fit in your clothing and a more flattering physique. Each procedure treats a different area of the body, and you may combine procedures to get a more comprehensive makeover.
What Body Sculpting Procedures Can I Choose From?
At Menard Plastic Surgery, we are proud to offer state-of-the-art body sculpting treatments to our Tuscaloosa-Birmingham area patients. The following treatments are among our most popular:
A tummy tuck can provide you with a slimmer waistline and tighter abdominal region.
Laser Lipo with SlimLipo™
SlimLipo™ represents the most innovative advancements in the field of liposuction today, with reduced risk and downtime when compared to traditional liposuction.
Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)
An arm lift is a surgical procedure that removes unsightly fat and loose flaccid skin from the upper arm region to diminish the appearance of “wings” and create a lean and defined contour.
To tighten muscle and skin tissue around the torso and rejuvenate the entire body, a body lift may be the ideal solution.
A thigh lift is performed surgically to extract fat, as well as trimming away flaccid skin from the thigh region to sculpt a leaner and more toned contour. Many patients request a thigh lift for the purpose of obtaining a “thigh gap” or space at the top of the thighs that prevents the thighs from rubbing together when you walk.
Is Body Sculpting Recommended for Weight Loss?
While body sculpting removes pockets of excess fat, it is not a weight loss treatment. Body sculpting is recommended for adult men and women whose weight is stable. Body sculpting does not help you lose large amounts of weight, but it can help you eliminate fatty deposits around the body that detract from a smooth and streamlined body contour. Body sculpting can eliminate inches from different areas of your body while not necessarily affecting weight loss.
Will Insurance Cover the Cost of Body Sculpting Procedures?
In rare cases, body sculpting procedures may be deemed medically necessary, and in those instances, the treatment may be covered by health insurance. However, most procedures are considered elective and are not covered. To keep the prices of procedures manageable and affordable for all of our patients, Menard Plastic Surgery provides financing plans, as well as flexible payment options.
