Workout Routine Not Effective? Try Body Sculpting
Excess body fat and skin are unsightly and incredibly frustrating. Many people diet and exercise diligently, but still find themselves unable to achieve the body shape they want. By performing body contouring, including liposuction, our doctors help their Miami and Fort Lauderdale-area patients sculpt and tone their bodies by removing stubborn body fat and excess skin to reveal a trimmer, healthier figure beneath. The power of body contouring is obvious in our plastic surgery before-and-after pictures.
Liposuction is a popular body contouring technique that allows our doctors to precisely remove small amounts of excess fat. We perform liposuction because this technique minimizes complications and discomfort. Before operating, the surgeon injects a solution containing epinephrine and lidocaine into the area being treated. This solution minimizes discomfort and constricts the blood vessels to control surgical bleeding. The doctor then inserts a suction tube through discreetly placed incisions, using it to break up and remove fat deposits along with the solution. Liposuction recovery varies widely depending on how much fat is removed. Some patients are back to normal after only a few days, while others need a few weeks to feel fully recovered. Almost all patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a week without undue discomfort. It is a good idea for the patients to wear a compression garment for a few weeks after surgery. The skin may look or feel loose in the treated area for up to six months after surgery, but it will eventually tighten to better fit the body's new shape. Though it is very popular on its own for body contouring, liposuction is also useful in many other applications. Serving Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and surrounding communities, our doctors make use of liposuction in breast enhancement, tummy tuck, and total body lift, as well as in localized thigh and buttock lift procedures.
Thigh lift is a body contouring surgery designed to treat uncomfortable and unsightly excess fat and skin on the upper legs. Through an incision concealed on the inner thigh, the surgeon can remove extra skin, fat, and tissue. After a thigh lift, patients are able to wear shorts, swimsuits, and other revealing clothing with more confidence. Most thigh lift patients are able to return to work after about two weeks, but the final results sometimes take a few months to become visible.
The buttocks are another area where fat and skin often build up. Weight fluctuations and age take a toll on the backside, affecting its size and shape in ways that are difficult to address short of surgery. Advanced body contouring techniques allow our doctors to perform a buttock lift, sculpting the backside to achieve a more attractive shape. If desired, the doctor can also sometimes add size and shape to the backside using fat transplants. Many buttock lift patients are unable to sit comfortably for a few weeks after surgery. It sometimes takes several months to recover fully from a buttock lift, but body contouring patients at our practice are almost always very pleased with the results.

Another year and you find yourself still feeling insecure about a certain aspect of your body. In fact, as time keeps marching on, you may even feel worse about it this year. You can make commitments to join the gym, but what happens when the new year still doesn't mean any extra time to go to the gym? You can keep putting off getting plastic surgery and when next year rolls around you will be back in the same position – wishing you had made it one of last year's resolutions.
Getting the look you want for your body can be a difficult task to achieve. The frustrating thing is you can put in hours at the gym and still not always see the results you want. This is especially true as we age. It begins to be more difficult to build or retain muscle, not to mention our skin's natural elasticity begins to give out on us, causing certain areas of the body to droop, sag or become otherwise unsightly to us when we look in the mirror.
