If you are considering a cosmetic surgical procedure with Dr. Mahjouri, finding the right treatment for your needs is essential. This is especially true when looking for a procedure to achieve overall improved shape —body contouring, tummy tucks, and liposuction.
Body contouring does offer different results than those of larger-scale liposuction and tummy tuck procedures. Depending upon the result you desire, you may choose a different service to meet your particular needs. For even more information on what to expect when these surgeries are performed, we’ve provided the guide below. If you have questions about your procedure, contact Mahjouri Cosmetic Surgery & Skincare Clinic today to schedule a consultation.
How Body Contouring Helps
Body contouring, or lipoplasty, involves the removal of minor fat deposits from a select area of the body. The same tools used for liposuction are used in this procedure, but to a much smaller amount on areas such as hips, upper arms, or the abdomen.
Minor fat deposits may create an undesirable shape in some areas, but lipoplasty allows Dr. Mahjouri to target small and specific concerns, providing the exact results you desire.
How Liposuction and Tummy Tucks Help
Tummy tucks and liposuction are two different procedures, but they can be combined to create a particularly dramatic affect in the abdomen. Tummy tucks, or abdominoplasties, remove excess skin and small fat deposits from the abdomen to create the appearance of a flat stomach. Liposuction can remove significant excess fat deposits from the abdomen, thighs, hips, knees, face, and neck. These procedures can be used independently or in combination, depending on how dramatic of a change the patient desires.
What Can You Expect?
Body contouring is the preferable treatment plan for if you want a minor change to the shape of your body. For some patients, a small change through lipoplasty is all that is needed to achieve their ideal images. For more dramatic changes, liposuction and tummy tucks are the more preferable option.
Sometimes, a patient will need to have multiple changes throughout the body, with each change being handled in a different way. In complex treatment plans, Dr. Mahjouri can combine lipoplasty, liposuction, and tummy tucks to create a broader change throughout the body.
