Body contouring is used to trim away excess skin and fatty deposits. It’s mostly intended to target drooping skin; for large amounts of fat without excess skin, liposuction is necessary. When there is a combination, liposuction is usually also employed as part of the procedure.
It’s best to get body contouring when you’re close to your target weight. Dramatic weight loss creates sagging skin, and additional weight loss after the procedure will often create more skin.
So if you feel you’re at the right weight for body contouring surgery and want to get rid of that excess hanging skin, Doctors Kendall Peters and Calvin Peters, both board-certified plastic surgeons, can help. Contact our office today for an initial appointment.
