Body Contouring Milwaukee
Body contouring is becoming very popular, especially in the Midwest, where hoards of women and men are losing an incredible amount of weight and want to tighten up their shape. Contouring also works for those who have tried to lose weight the old fashioned way, but need the help of cosmetic surgeons to give them the look they desire.
Types of Body Contouring
Body contouring is an incredibly diverse procedure that can include many different surgeries. Depending on your needs and which areas you hope to improve upon, any combination of the following may be best for you:
Liposuction: Easily one of the most popular contouring procedures, liposuction has advanced in such a way that makes it safer and faster than ever before. With several new techniques and technologies, suctioning out fat from the body in order to create a wonderful shape is still one of the most sought after cosmetic surgeries today.
Tummy Tuck: Great for those with problem stomachs or new mothers who have just given birth, a tummy tuck will remove any excess skin in the abdomen area and leave you with a flat, smooth, natural looking midsection.
Butt Lift/Butt Augmentation: The back side has become such a common area to want to improve upon in recent years. A butt lift will do just what it says- lift your buttocks and give it a nice youthful shape. Butt augmentation often includes an implant for those patients who want to increase the size of their buttocks as well as improving upon its shape.
Arm Lift: Excess skin can be removed from the arm, and sutures can be put in place to give the arm a slimmer, more toned appearance. Just like any other lift, an arm lift will make the area appear tighter and more defined.
Fat Transfer: Fat transfer is a relatively newer technique which combines the benefits of liposuction and augmentation into one. With a fat transfer procedure you can reduce the size and appearance of one area while enhancing another. Fat can be removed from areas such as the legs or butt and be injected back into a number of other places such as the face, lips, or breasts.
Risks and Side Effects
Cosmetic procedures that require the patient to undergo general anesthesia can have a lot of complications. Other risks and side effects from body contouring may also include swelling, bleeding, bruising, and infection at the incision site. There is very little need to worry, however, because most patients experience these side effects in very minor ways, if at all.
Best Candidates for Body Contouring
Body contouring can have some incredible, dramatic results. The best candidates are non-smokers who are of good general health and a healthy weight. There are always exceptions, so discussing your specific case with your doctor will help you to decide whether or not a body contouring procedure is right for you.
