Body Contouring: What It Is and How It Can Help You

Body contouring encompasses a large amount of cosmetic surgery procedures. There are many different reasons that you might undergo body contouring, but the most common reasons are weight loss and childbirth. Learn more about what body contouring is and how it can benefit you.

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is any cosmetic surgical procedure or set of procedures that removes excess skin and fat to contour or shape the body into a more ideal form. There are several different types of body contouring surgery, including:

  • Arm lift
  • Breast lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Butt lift
  • Thigh lift

You can also have excess skin or fat removed from other areas of the body if necessary. In certain circumstances, you may need body contouring on areas such as the hips, ankles, calves, or back as well.

After Weight Loss

The most common reason for body contouring is weight loss. Often, if you have significant weight loss of 100 pounds or more, you have excess skin and tissue that causes flabs even though the weight is gone. In order to fully benefit from your weight loss and have a better self-image, body contouring is necessary to reinforce the healthy tissue and muscle and remove the excess skin that is no longer needed. Many people undergo body contouring after significant weight loss. In fact, Roseanne Barr had body contouring after her weight loss.

After Pregnancy and Childbirth

The other common reason for body contouring is pregnancy and childbirth. Bearing children can wreak havoc on your body. It can be impossible to get your breasts and tummy back into the shape and firmness that they once were. Body contouring after pregnancy is often called a Mommy Makeover. It may include any of the same procedures that are often used for weight loss body contouring. Some famous celebrities who are reported to have had body contouring after childbirth include Angelina Jolie, Mariah Carey, and Brittany Spears.
