While it’s still springtime in most of the northern hemisphere, residents of Florida know that our few short weeks of spring quickly give way to summer. And what’s better in the heat of summer than donning a new swimsuit and finding a body of water to keep you cool? Unfortunately, not everyone is feeling swimsuit ready about now. Every year people of all shapes and sizes set goals in hopes of feeling their best by the time summer rolls around. And each year, hard-working people fall short of what they had hoped for. If that sounds like you, we offer a variety of body contouring procedures that might be precisely what you’re looking for. In Florida, you’ll have all the way until the last couple of months of the year to show off your results poolside with our tropical climate, giving you plenty of time to heal and see the beauty of your end results!
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring or sculpting refers to procedures that can eliminate fat, shape areas of the body, and tighten skin. It’s an ideal investment for clients who want to see a major change with noticeable results. At the Florida Center for Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we offer tummy tucks and liposuction as well as a variety of different lifts, all of which are considered body sculpting or contouring surgeries.
Every patient has their own reason for wanting a body sculpting procedure, but it’s essential to know that body contouring isn’t meant to help patients lose weight. Ideally, any patient undergoing one of these procedures is already at their desired weight but is having trouble losing stubborn pockets of fat from problem areas. Common areas treated with body contouring are the arms, belly, neck and chin, and thighs. It’s perfect for targeting stubborn fat, removing excess skin, and tightening skin in that area.
Am I A Candidate?
As with any elective plastic surgery procedure, your doctor will want to know that you are in good health. You should be able to maintain a healthy body weight, have a good diet and exercise routine, and avoid or moderate unhealthy habits. Think of body contouring as the finishing touch necessary to help you meet your summer swimsuit goals after all the hard work you’ve already put in. A thorough consultation with Dr. DeMercurio is always the first step toward your goals, so be sure to share concerns and questions with us then.
The Benefits Of Our Top Procedures
Four of our most popular procedures are the tummy tuck, Brazilian butt lift, and breast lift. Each of these target different areas of the body but have the same goal of helping you look and feel your absolute best.
If your abdomen has a pocket of stubborn fat a tummy tuck with liposuction may be your best option. Depending on your desired results and other factors you’ll discuss with Dr. DeMercurio you may opt for a mini, classic, or extended tuck. Your results can be life-changing with a flatter, tighter tummy.
A Brazilian butt lift is incredibly popular if you’d like to rearrange some extra body fat. The process essentially involves removing excess fat from a problem area like your stomach or inner thighs and then injecting it back into your rear end for a fuller, shapely behind.
As the name suggests, a breast lift raises the breasts with the removal of excess skin and can be paired with implants for an even more dramatic change. Lifts improve the shape and contour, reduce enlarged areolas, and boost the symmetry and aesthetic appeal of your breasts. As always, we’ll take the time to discuss options with you personally and help you choose the type of lift that will best meet your needs!
The results of body contouring procedures are long-lasting, provided you do your part and maintain a healthy body weight. Remember that no cosmetic procedure can work against the things you put your body through. Eating and drinking like a fraternity brother will show, no matter how much you’ve invested in your appearance. It’s vitally important that all of our patients have a good handle on what it takes to maintain a healthy body before investing time and money in our procedures.
