Body Contouring Surgery

Are You A Good Candidate For Body Contouring Surgery?Are you self-conscious about your love handles or muffin top? Maybe you are considering ways to remove excess skin after pregnancy or thinking of sculpting your thighs with liposuction. Many patients thinking of improving their appearance wonder whether body contouring is right for them.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides body contouring surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Conditions Targeted by Body Contouring

These are a number of aesthetic concerns which can be significantly improved through a body contouring plastic surgery procedure:

  • Loose skin
  • Extra skin following weight loss
  • Wrinkled skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Hanging skin
  • Tummy pouch or pooch
  • Stubborn fat
  • Muffin top
  • Love handles
  • Drooping breasts

Signs of Suitable Candidacy for Body Contouring

Everyone may not be an ideal candidate for body contouring surgery automatically because of the nature of the surgical procedure. Your cosmetic surgeon will assess your health history and conduct a thorough examination to determine whether body contouring surgery is the right option for you. In general, these signs indicate that you are a good candidate for the procedure:

  1. Excess Skin

Losing weight requires dedication and hard work. It can be frustrating to end up with sagging skin that is unresponsive to exercise and diet when you have put in the efforts to lose weight. Abdominoplasty among other body contouring procedures can help you remove unwanted skin. Body contouring is useful in addressing stubborn fat pockets and sagging skin after pregnancy too.

  1. Ideal Weight

A suitable candidate for the procedure should follow a well-balanced and healthy diet. They should also exercise regularly. It is recommended that you continue following healthy habits after the treatment to maintain results.

Tummy tuck and liposuction can be helpful in slimming thighs and creating a sleek new profile. However, the procedure can make the greatest impact only when you are within 15-20% of your ideal weight.

  1. Realistic and Positive Goals

The decision to get body sculpting procedure performed should be a personal one. It should be done only if you want it. This is not a way for meeting aesthetic goals that other people have for you.

  1. Non-smoker

Smoking has a major impact on recovering from surgery. It can delay healing and negatively affect blood circulation in your body. The ideal body contouring candidate would be a nonsmoker or someone who is willing to give up smoking for the required period of time.

Defining Muscles

Some patients get rid of their unwanted fat through exercise and diet, but are unable to achieve the muscle definition they want. In unfortunate cases, dozens of lunges, crunches, and planks don’t provide sculpted muscles and chiseled results. Body contouring surgery can be helpful if you have already lost weight but are looking for better defined muscles.

Committed to Recovery

Body contouring surgery involves a certain amount of downtime depending on the procedure(s) you select. You should have available adequate time post-operatively to recover from the procedure. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Texas, and nearby areas for body contouring surgery.
