Look and Feel Fit
Body contouring is an umbrella term that includes numerous surgical and non-surgical aesthetic treatments to reshape and contour areas of the body. Typically, this refers to the midsection and sides of the torso, but it can also include procedures that reduce fat from other parts of the body as well. At Quinn Plastic Surgery, we offer liposuction, CoolSculpting, Mommy Makeovers, and Tummy Tucks to help you get the look you want.
Liposuction is a viable option for patients who, after diet and exercise, still experience dissatisfaction with extra deposits of fatty tissue in certain parts of their body. Excess fat can be a result of poor weight management, but it can also be hereditary. Patients choose liposuction to enhance their body shape or to continue with healthy efforts.
Fat that settles into the abdominal area can be difficult to burn off. Many women also suffer from lax skin and loose abdominal muscles as a result of pregnancy. A tummy tuck helps you achieve a flatter tummy and slimmer waistline by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal muscles.
A “Mommy Makeover” is a comprehensive procedure that includes enhancing and lifting the breasts as well as trimming and shaping the abdomen. Many women seek this surgery to help their bodies recover from the changes that come with pregnancy. Diastasis recti can also be corrected in a Mommy Makeover. Each patient’s surgery is designed around their individual objectives.
Non-invasive and highly effective, CoolSculpting treatments use a process called cryolipolysis to freeze fat cells and provide targeted body contouring. Fat is reduced in the treatment area over time, with final results showing up within a few months. CoolSculpting is a good option for patients who want body contouring and fat reduction without surgery. With over 35 years of experience helping patients realize their cosmetic goals, Dr. Quinn designs each procedure with careful consideration of your individual needs. By scheduling your body contouring procedure with Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center, you can proceed with confidence, knowing that you will receive expert care that meets the highest standards of safety and quality.
Customized Body Sculpting
Common body contouring treatment areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, back, chest, neck, chin, or any other areas of the body where excess fat deposits cause lack of confidence or impede comfort. White fat tends to be stubborn, making it difficult to burn off with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a great solution for those who are in good shape and health and want the stubborn fat gone. It can be life-changing and beneficial to those who undergo the procedure.
Schedule Your Consultation
Your treatment is designed around your unique physique to provide your desired outcome. Dr. Quinn will help you plan realistic goals and perform a procedure that gives you a slimmer, more sculpted body shape. During your Consultation, we will answer any questions you may have and assess the options that are best for you.
Get Ready to
At your consultation, you will discuss your medical history with Dr. Quinn. We will also outline the steps of your surgery, including whether local or general anesthesia will be administered, so that you know what to expect and can plan for your recovery. If you are having liposuction on a very small area, local anesthesia may be administered. Otherwise, you will also be put under general anesthesia or sedation for your comfort. The length of the procedure will depend on how many areas are being treated. This can range from under an hour for a nonsurgical procedure like CoolSculpting to several hours for a Mommy Makeover.
Step into a More Slender You
You will be taken to a recovery room after your procedure to be monitored until it is safe for you to return home. Plan on having someone drive you home since you may be groggy from anesthesia. Pain, swelling, and bruising are typical side effects as you heal. You may have surgical drains placed to help remove fluid from the treated area. Compression garments may be recommended to reduce swelling and promote healing. Your results will be noticeable immediately, but it may take a little time for the treatment area to settle into its optimal contours. For CoolSculpting, there is no recovery time, and you can resume your normal activities almost immediately after treatment.
We are always on hand to answer questions before, during, and after your procedure. Eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise can help you maintain the results of your body contouring and fat reduction treatment. Schedule your consultation to learn whether body contouring can help you meet your goals.
You will experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort as you recover. These symptoms should subside within a few weeks.
Liposuction carries the risks associated with any surgery, including a small risk of infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and fluid collection. There is also a risk of contour irregularities. These risks can be minimized by choosing an experienced and highly-qualified surgeon.
Insurance typically does not cover liposuction performed for cosmetic reasons. Occasionally, liposuction is deemed medically necessary; contact your insurance provider with questions about coverage. We also offer financing options to help you pay for your procedure.
