Body Contouring - 2 Basic Options Powered By Docstoc
					If you are interested in body contouring, you may have problem areas that, no matter
how hard you work, just won't seem to change. There are two major options that most
people choose from if they have tried diet and exercise and still don't see the results
that they are looking for. Most of the time, these work for individuals with excess fat
or skin. The best way to determine which procedure is best for you and your specific
situation is to schedule an appointment with a cosmetic surgeon.
  Liposuction
  Body contouring can be done through liposuction. You will make an appointment
and have the procedure done as an outpatient. This means that there is no need to be
in a hospital or have an extended stay in a hospital. A cosmetic surgeon places small
incision marks on the areas that you want to have fat removed. A small tube is placed
inside the incision and the fat is sucked out. Because there is some pain involved,
general anesthesia is used.
  This procedure takes some time for recovery and the full results are not completely
seen, in some cases, for several weeks. Expect bruising and swelling to last at least a
few weeks. There are different types of liposuction and a doctor can meet with you to
determine which one will work best for your specific situation.
  Tummy Tuck
  Body contouring can also be completed with a tummy tuck, also known as
abdominoplasty. There are three procedures that can be done including a mini tuck, a
standard tuck and an extended tuck. Each one is different and you can talk to your
doctor about which one will work best for you. Some need to be done in a hospital
and others can be handled inside the doctor's office. The procedures may change just
the skin, the wall of the abdomen, or a both of these as well as the sides of the body
(the flanks).
  As with other surgeries, recovery time will vary depending on which option that you
chose. Plan to limit your movement for a few weeks and you may not be able to
exercise for several weeks following. Many times, patients looking for more
noticeable body contouring may get a tummy tuck and pair it up with other
procedures like liposuction or a lift of some area of the body.
  No matter what type of body contouring operation you are planning to have, make
sure that you find a cosmetic surgeon that will take the time to talk with you about all
of the options that you have and help you choose what will be best for you. Both of
the above options will have scarring, although some may not be as noticeable as
others. This is another important thing that you want to talk over.
  Call today to set up an initial consultation with a cosmetic surgeon in your area and
discuss your options. You may find that the solution that you are looking for is more
readily available than you realize.
