As Americans continue to recognize the urgency of adopting healthier lifestyles, those same people are learning that it may take more than weight loss alone to achieve their ideal figure.
South Carolina plastic surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn is well-trained in performing body contouring surgeries after weight loss, which is a combination of cosmetic surgery procedures designed to address the unwanted skin and fat deposits that not only become more visible after shedding unwanted pounds but also become more prominent as we age.
Roughly 42,000 Americans sought out body contouring procedures in 2013, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Although each patient is unique and their particular needs will be determined during a plastic surgery consultation, body contouring may include such procedures as:
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- Breast lift (mastopexy)
- Arm lifts (brachioplasty)
- Body lifts
- Buttock augmentation
- Mommy makeover, or the post-partum procedures that can help moms counter the physical impact of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding
- Thigh lifts
