Let’s say you set yourself a goal to lose a significant amount of weight. However, even after you committed and stuck to a diet and exercise program that helped you shed all the pounds, did you find the result disappointing?
While losing weight should help you feel happier, healthier, and more energetic, the results may not be what you anticipated. Losing a lot of weight can leave you with stretched, loose skin and stubborn pockets of fat, keeping you from looking your best.
Pregnancy, aging, weight loss, and our overall health affect how our bodies respond to our efforts to get into shape. But the good news is that advancements in technology are providing more and more solutions to satisfy our desire to look attractive, younger, and more vibrant, which is why body contouring procedures are trending nowadays.
There are so many body contouring procedures that can help you meet your aesthetic goals, whether you want to get rid of excess skin or create beautiful curves.
In situations where weight loss alone isn’t enough to get you to where you want to be with your appearance, Dr. Eric Pugash recommends the following popular body contouring procedures to help you achieve a more sculpted appearance:
Tummy Tuck – Full or Mini: Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat. Many patients benefit from a full tummy tuck when an extensive area needs correction. In contrast, a mini-tummy tuck might be better for some patients who only need to address the area below the navel.
Mommy Makeover: This customized combination of plastic surgery procedures treats the breasts and abdomen to address the effects of childbearing and restore a woman’s body to its pre-pregnancy shape, or better.
Fat Transfer: Also known as fat grafting, this involves removing fat from one part of the body via gentle liposuction and then injecting it elsewhere, typically to build up areas that have lost volume due to aging.
Dr. Eric Pugash and his top-rated staff have a caring and professional approach to tummy tuck surgery and mommy makeovers, or even a combination of procedures specifically customized to your aesthetic goals.
