Everyone’s body contours change and develop throughout their lifetime due to genetics, aging, weight changes, pregnancy, and other medical influences. Though some individuals achieve their ideal figure with diet and exercise alone, many adults face difficulties. Although exercise could improve your muscle definition and tone, it does not minimize aging skin that has started to sag.
Many individuals consider the help of non-invasive treatments and surgical procedures for body contouring in Houston when struggling with increasing body fat and skin laxity. Since there are multiple body sculpting procedures with various cosmetic and medical benefits to choose from, the first step is discussing your goals with a competent, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Deigni. By scheduling a consultation with us, you will discover the Deigni Difference in how he interacts with his patients and provides high-quality care.
Unfortunately, diets and exercise are not always successful methods for some individuals attempting to reduce excess body fat while improving muscle contours. Since being unhappy with your appearance could negatively impact your mental well-being, undergoing body sculpting treatments in Houston could have cosmetic and psychological benefits.
At-home and non-invasive treatments may not be suitable for reducing moderate to severe degrees of extra fat and loose, sagging skin for some individuals. Instead, surgical body sculpting procedures offer more substantive and long-term contour enhancements with various possible operations that may be combined in some cases.
Since extra fat deposits and skin laxity could affect most body areas, Deigni Plastic Surgery in Houston offers a variety of operations to target these areas.
Another routine body sculpting surgery is a tummy tuck, which sculpts the abdomen by trimming away the loose skin that hangs down and repairing weakened abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck surgery often uses liposuction to remove extra fat while the surgeon carefully restores the muscle balance with sutures and repositions remaining skin over newly enhanced muscle contours. Dr Deigni specializes in the Drainless Tummy Tuck technique, which provides a safer and more comfortable recovery for his patients.
The best body sculpting option for overall body fat removal is liposuction, which liquifies and vacuums excess fat cells from treatment areas through minor incisions. For instance, liposuction routinely treats common problem areas such as the abdomen, love handles, thighs, back, chest, and more that develop excess, stubborn body fat that does not respond to exercise or diet. However, liposuction does not treat loose or sagging skin, so patients with this concern may want to consider other body sculpting procedures.
Surgical “lift” operations eliminate excess fat deposits with liposuction and trim loose skin from treatment areas, just like a tummy tuck procedure. However, an arm lift targets the upper arms exclusively, while thigh lifts could target either the inner or outer areas. On the other hand, a lower body lift targets multiple body areas at once, including the hips, lower abdomen, thighs, and flanks. A Brazilian butt lift specifically targets the buttocks in order to give it the curves that a person is looking for.
Due to the significant physical changes that come from pregnancy, many women who have recently had children combine multiple cosmetic procedures into one operation, known as a mommy makeover. Though patients may choose to include a broad spectrum of surgeries, frequent operations include breast surgery, liposuction, a tummy tuck, a Brazilian butt lift, and additional body lift procedures.
Working out and dieting are challenging weight loss methods for many individuals, especially for those with visibly loose and sagging skin that hides their true contours. If this sounds like you, the best option for reducing both cosmetic concerns and improving your self-confidence may be surgical body sculpting in Houston.
Since several different procedures could offer a broad spectrum of enhancements, the first step is meeting with Dr. Deigni. Get in touch with us to discuss your medical history, body contour concerns, and possible results during a body sculpting consultation.
