Body contouring refers to any procedure that alters the shape of various parts of the body. We often use the term in conjunction with patients who have lost a lot of weight, sometimes called massive weight loss (MWL). Whether through bariatric surgery (gastric bypass, lap band, stomach stapling, for example) or through appropriate diet and regular exercise, patients can develop very characteristic deformities related to extra and sagging skin. This affects virtually every part of the body, including the face and neck, breasts, arms, abdomen/tummy, back and buttocks, and thighs and legs.
If you meet the following criteria, you’re probably a great candidate for our Richmond Body Contouring procedure:
Patients are typically unhappy with certain parts of their body that they’ve been unable to lose weight or have extra skin
Patients should have realistic expectations of the procedure
It’s vital that patients are in good overall health and don’t smoke cigarettes
There are so many great advantages to this surgery. We’ve included some of the following:
The procedure will increase self-confidence, allowing you to live your best and healthiest life
With this surgery, we’ll be able to trim the fat on certain parts of the body
The procedure will allow us to enhance your natural curves and beautiful features
During body contouring, we can tighten certain muscles
The first step to getting body contouring in Richmond, VA is to book a consultation with Dr. Hubert. The consultation process is designed to help inform our patients about the surgery, allow patients to ask questions, and understand Dr. Hubert’s expert recommendations.
If you’re happy with our advice, surgery will be booked and we’ll provide you with pre and postoperative instructions. It’s vital that you follow these instructions as closely as possible as they are designed to help reduce risk and complications with your body contouring procedure.
Depending on which areas are affected, Dr. Hubert may be able to combine certain procedures for different parts of the body. That leads to less downtime and missed work since you can recover from the different areas at the same time.
Careful assessment and surgical planning are critical for successful body contouring surgery. Body contouring often addresses not only getting rid of extra skin but also restoring fullness to the areas that are supposed to be plump, such as in the breasts or the buttocks. Dr. Hubert has the skill and expertise to come up with an individualized plan for you, based on your own body and personal goals. The following are some of the procedures we offer for body contouring:
Often patients can go home the same day as surgery (outpatient), but occasionally, depending on how extensive the body contouring is, the safest plan might be to spend a night in the hospital. Sometimes the body contouring surgery is even a bigger operation than the initial gastric bypass! You might need one or more surgical drains, which help to prevent fluid from building up underneath the skin. They are easy to care for and are removed in the office with minimal to no discomfort. In most cases, you will need to wear a compression garment after surgery to help the skin heal in the correct position and to keep swelling to a minimum.
The cost of body contouring in Richmond can vary on a number of factors. During your consultation, Dr. Hubert will go over all associated costs, financing options, and any questions you have.
