We all have areas of our body that we’re not entirely confident about. A proper diet and exercise routine are always helpful in improving your overall shape, but it may not get you exactly where you want to be. Body contouring procedures are a great way to get the body of your dreams when diet and exercise just aren’t cutting it.
Some of the types of body contouring procedures in DC:
Tummy Tuck– A tummy tuck is a great option for people who have loose skin on their stomach from weight loss or childbirth, or for people who just want to work on flattening out their stomach.
There are three main types of the procedure with varying levels of intensity, from liposuction to removing excess skin. Depending on the shape your stomach is in and the goals you have, your doctor will help you find the right procedure for you. With a short recovery time ranging from 2-3 weeks, you’ll be back to your routine in no time.
Mommy Makeover– A mommy makeover typically involves some or all of the following procedures: tummy tuck, liposuction, breast enhancement, and breast lift. This procedure is great for mothers who are at least six months post-childbirth and are near their ideal body weight. It can completely alter the look of your body and restore your pre-baby appearance.
Your doctor can recommend the right procedures to achieve your body goals, and with a recovery time of 2-3 weeks, you won’t have to take off too much time from being a mom.
Arm Lift– Candidates for an arm lift range from people who have lost weight and have excess skin on their arms to fit individuals who suffer from a condition preventing them from improving the look of their arms through exercise.
This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat in the arm and then contouring underneath the skin to give the desired look of fit/toned arms- all with a recovery time of only 2-3 weeks.
Thigh Lift– A thigh lift is similar to an arm lift in that your doctor can remove excess skin and fat to make your legs look more toned. This procedure is great for clients with excess skin or those who suffer from leg chafing and want to achieve a thigh gap.
This procedure has a longer recovery of around 6-8 weeks, but your doctor can discuss the extent of your procedure beforehand, so you know what to expect.
Brazilian Butt Lift– Candidates for a Brazilian butt lift usually wish to enlarge their buttock or restore its youthful, perky look. This procedure is especially desirable because fat is suctioned from another area of the body and then grafted into the buttock.
It can enlarge the buttock and offer a more symmetrical look for candidates whose buttock us asymmetrical. Recovery times may vary, but you can typically expect 7-10 days.
