About Body Contouring

At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA, Dr. Theodore T. Foley offers body contouring (from slight modifications to even full body lift) to improve the overall shape and look of the body. Once you meet with Dr. Foley and have a personalized consult, you and the doctor can come up with a personalized surgical or non-surgical plan for your body contouring needs. Surgeries like tummy tucks, breast lifts, arm lifts, and butt lifts can be combined in one surgical session to minimize patient downtime and cost. Often combined procedures mean fabulous discounts for the bundled procedures. Furthermore, some patients may opt to pursue non-surgical body contouring which means typically no downtime!  At Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania, we understand that achieving a slim body can be difficult through diet and exercise alone because this cannot remove the excess skin that is hiding your figure. Also, sometimes that last little bit of belly fat just can not be eliminated by diet an exercise alone! This is why our practice is proud to offer a modern solutions to create the shape you desire with custom body contouring surgery or non-surgical modalities. Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Foley will work closely with you to create an individualized surgery plan that best achieves your aesthetic goals and needs eliminating excess skin and fat to create a slimmer silhouette.

Best Candidates

Body contouring is performed to tighten, reshape, and contour areas of the body that you are not able to change naturally with diet and exercise. Areas that are most often treated include the arms, breasts, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, knees, and flanks. It is also performed on the face and neck. The ideal timing for body contouring is about a year after significant weight loss to allow the body to heal as much as possible on its own and ensure your weight remains stable. The plastic surgeon considers patient health, body areas, and other factors to ensure the patient will receive the best results. Body contouring is best for patients who are not planning future pregnancies, as the effect of the surgical toning will be minimized.

What to Expect

The overall surgical technique or non-surgical technique varies for every patient. Traditionally, body contouring includes removing extra skin and reshaping the underlying tissue with minor liposuction to remove small pockets of fat. The duration of the surgery will depend on the case, and a hospital stay may be required to ensure a safe recovery. To minimize infection and avoid overwhelming the body's healing process, the surgeon may group the chosen procedures together into one single surgery or into two or more surgeries. Procedures are grouped and timed according to each patient’s personalized surgical plan. This staging reduces the overall surgical risk of complications. Most patients find that the recovery from this surgery is challenging, but visible improvements are likely seen early on to increase self-confidence in most patients, making the surgery well worth the effort.

Other Considerations

Like other major surgeries, body contouring will cause some scarring. The skilled body contouring plastic surgeon will consider scarring carefully in the overall surgical plan and place surgical incisions in less visible areas or in natural folds of the body. Post-surgical care and topical solutions for scar management are also provided to result in a quicker, healthier healing process. Most scars fade and blend with natural skin tone as time passes.
