Body contouring is a general term referring to cosmetic plastic surgery procedures that shape and improve the tone of the skin and underlying tissue. Body contouring is also often performed to remove excess skin and tissue on women and men after substantial weight loss. Prominent examples of post-weight loss body contouring procedures in New Jersey that Dr. Sanjay Lalla offers include breast lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction.

What Is A Body Lift?

After diet and exercising, you’ll want to eliminate the excess folds of skin left behind due to dramatic weight loss. A body lift eliminates excess fat, folds, and loose hanging skin to provide you with a more contoured appearance. Depending on the areas you wish to treat, a board-certified plastic surgeon can perform four types of body lifts: upper-body, lower-body, mid-body, or total body.

  • An upper-body lift typically targets areas such as the arms and breasts and upper back. Meanwhile, a lower-body lift can restore a fit appearance to the hips, buttocks, and thighs.
  • For a mid-body lift, the cosmetic plastic surgeon removes the excess skin from the abdomen, as well as the thighs, buttocks, and hips. This procedure creates a firm contour from the stomach area down to the thighs.
  • For a total body lift, sometimes referred to as a circumferential body lift, the procedure targets virtually every part of the body including the breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs, hips, and buttocks. Total body lift procedures are especially helpful for individuals after substantial weight loss.

A body lift is a major cosmetic procedure; you can expect significant amounts of recovery time, particularly after a total body lift. A total body lift may require six weeks or more for a complete recovery.

What Is A Thigh Lift?

Thigh lift plastic surgery tightens the skin around the inner thigh. In fact, the procedure is sometimes referred to as an inner thigh lift. Thigh lift cosmetic surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and the plastic surgeon will make the required incisions so that scars will remain hidden. Your recovery time depends on the extent of the surgery, but within six months healing will be complete. If a lot of skin and tissue is removed during the thigh lift, an overnight stay in the hospital may be required. But anti-inflammatory and pain medication will help New Jersey patients mitigate any discomfort.

What Are The Different Types Of Liposuction?

Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic procedures today, and Dr. Lalla performs several types for body contouring patients who have undergone significant weight loss. These various liposuction techniques can remove fat from many different parts of the body – the thighs, the abdomen, buttocks, neck, and even on the chin.

  • Tumescent liposuction, a standard form of suction-assisted liposuction, uses high volumes of fluid containing an anesthetic infused directly into the fatty tissue being removed. Most plastic surgeons typically use local anesthesia, rather than general anesthesia, when performing this body contouring procedure.
  • Ultrasound liposuction uses a specialized cannula that transmits ultrasonic vibrations that burst the walls of fat cells, thereby liquefying the fat and making it easier to remove.
  • Laser liposuction uses thermal and photomechanical energy to help liquefy the fat on problematic body areas.
  • Power-assisted liposuction, meanwhile, uses a cannula with a mechanized movement, relieving the surgeon of the need to manually maneuver the cannula.
