How Body Contouring Works

Body contouring is an aesthetic procedure designed to reshape and redefine various body parts to improve appearance and confidence. Despite the multiple techniques and methods involved, the fundamental principle behind body contouring is removing or reshaping excess body fat and skin to sculpt the body into a desired shape.

Different Types of Body Contouring Procedures

Body contouring encompasses many surgical procedures to enhance the body's shape and proportions by eliminating excess fat and sagging skin. Here, we explore some of today's most popular body contouring surgeries.

Liposuction

Liposuction, or lipoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove stubborn fat cells from specific body areas. It is particularly effective for the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck. During this procedure, a small, thin cannula is inserted through tiny incisions to break up and suction out the fat layers beneath the skin. It's an excellent option for body contouring but should be considered something other than a weight loss method.

Tummy Tuck

Also known as abdominoplasty, a body contouring surgery involves removing unwanted fat and loose skin around the abdomen while tightening the abdominal muscles. It is commonly sought by individuals who have experienced substantial weight loss or women who want to restore their pre-pregnancy abdominal shape. A tummy tuck surgery can significantly improve abdominal contours by flattening the stomach and defining the waistline.

Mommy makeover

A mommy makeover is a customized body contouring combination of procedures to help women restore their pre-pregnancy bodies. Typically, a mommy makeover includes a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, lift or reduction, and liposuction. However, the procedures chosen depend on the woman's needs and aesthetic goals. A mommy makeover can provide comprehensive and satisfying results by addressing multiple areas of the body in one surgical session.

Brazilian butt lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) is a famous body sculpting procedure that enhances the size and shape of the buttocks. Unlike butt implants, a BBL uses the patient's fat harvested through liposuction from other body parts, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. This harvested fat is processed and re-injected into the buttocks to create a fuller, rounder, and lifted appearance.

Body Lift

A body lift is a more comprehensive body contouring procedure often following significant weight loss. It addresses loose, sagging skin and residual fat tissues that often remain after shedding a large amount of weight. A body lift surgery can target various areas, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. The result is a smoother, more toned body contour that reflects the patient's weight loss efforts.

Preparing for Body Contouring in Florida

Body contouring is a transformative procedure that requires careful preparation to ensure the best possible outcome. If you're in Florida and considering a body contouring procedure, here are some critical steps to prepare:

Understand the Procedure

Body contouring isn't a single procedure; it encompasses various plastic surgery procedures designed to reshape and refine multiple body parts. Familiarize yourself with the different options, including liposuction, tummy tucks, mini tummy tuck, mommy makeovers, Brazilian butt lifts, and body lifts.

Choose a Certified Surgeon

When considering body contouring, choosing the right surgeon is a critical part of the process. Dr. Morad Askari, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Revive Surgical Institute, meets all these criteria. With the proper credentials and extensive experience in performing a variety of body contouring procedures, he is a trusted choice.

Initial Consultation

As part of the consultation, Dr. Askari will conduct a comprehensive health assessment which includes understanding your medical history, current medications, lifestyle habits, and overall physical health. You may need pre-operative tests to confirm your suitability for the procedure.

Lifestyle Modifications

Before the procedure, you may need to make some lifestyle changes. For instance, if you smoke, you'll be advised to quit at least several weeks before and after the surgery, as smoking can hinder the healing process.

Prepare for Recovery

Body contouring is a surgical procedure, and you'll need time to recover—plan for this period. You may need to take time off work and arrange for help with daily chores.

Post-Procedure Care and Recovery

After a body contouring procedure, it's essential to rest and limit physical activity to allow your body to heal. Keeping the surgical site clean is crucial to prevent infections; this includes cleaning the area gently with mild soap and lukewarm water, applying any ointments prescribed by Dr. Askari, and routinely changing 
the dressings as instructed. Using compression garments, staying well-nourished and hydrated is vital for healing, while avoiding smoking and alcohol can further aid recovery. Regular follow-up appointments allow Dr. Askari to monitor your progress and address concerns. Lastly, a healthy lifestyle is vital to maintaining 
the results of your procedure.

Understanding the Costs

In Florida, body contouring costs can vary widely from $3,500 to $20,000 based on the specific procedures required to achieve your aesthetic goals. Please note that these are rough estimates, and the actual costs can be higher or lower.

Liposuction

$3,500 - $7,500

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

$6,000 - $10,000

Mommy Makeover

(usually includes a tummy tuck and breast augmentation/lift)
$6,000 - $10,000

Liposuction

$4,000 - $10,000

Body Lift

$7,000 - $17,000

An accurate cost estimate can only be provided after a detailed consultation with a qualified surgeon. At Revive Surgical Institute, Dr. Askari will consider several factors during this consultation, including the type and complexity of the procedures, along with your unique health circumstances. It's important to note that the total cost typically encompasses not only the surgeon's fee but also elements like anesthesia, hospital facility costs, medical tests, post-surgery garments, and any prescribed medications. So, when you consult Dr. Askari at Revive Surgical Institute, request a comprehensive cost breakdown to understand all potential expenses fully.
