Body Contouring in San Diego, CA

Why consider Body Contouring?
Body contouring may be ideal for you if you have worked hard to obtain your ideal weight and muscle tone through diet and exercise, but still, have trouble eliminating the last pockets of fatty deposits that have accumulated in specific problem areas. These problematic fatty deposits or areas of sagging skin may prevent you from achieving the firm, sculpted body you desire. Body contouring procedures extract unsightly fatty deposits and/or trim away excess skin from areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, back, and pubic region, rejuvenating the physical appearance.
How does Body Contouring work?
Body contouring may include various procedures or combinations that extract fatty deposits from specific “problem areas” of the body. There are several procedures that are used to sculpt the body, depending on the treatment area and the amount of fat that must be extracted from each.
What types of Body Contouring procedures do you offer?
The following body contouring procedures are offered for our patients at Pollack Plastic Surgery in San Diego:
Liposuction improves body contour by extracting excess fatty deposits from problem areas via a vacuum suction process by way of tiny incisions and a fine tube called a cannula.
- Tummy Tuck
The tummy tuck surgically tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess loose skin, resulting in a flatter belly, a smooth abdominal contour, and a more defined, slimmer waistline.
- Mommy Makeover
The mommy makeover combines several procedures that restore the body contour after pregnancy or dramatic weight fluctuations. The mommy makeover is not just for moms and may benefit almost any adult who wants to rejuvenate their entire torso and body contour.
- Arm Lift
An arm lift eliminates unsightly fat and sagging skin from the upper arm to produce toned and streamlined contours with increased definition and muscle tone.
- Thigh Lift
A thigh lift extracts fat and trims away excess sagging skin from the inner and/or outer thighs to create a more toned and slender appearance. One popular benefit of a thigh lift is the achievement of a “thigh gap” in patients who desire this.
Who is an ideal candidate for Body Contouring?
Body contouring procedures are designed for individuals who have undergone dramatic weight loss and/or have maintained a stable weight close to their ideal. Body contouring procedures are highly customized and vary from patient to patient. Candidates for body contouring procedures must be adults in overall good health with realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of body contouring.
