Body contouring involves forming and reshaping the body by removing excess skin and fat from different areas of the body. There are a variety of body contouring operations, including tummy tucks, liposuction, butt lifts, and arm lifts. Typically, when a person loses a radical amount of weight, there is excess skin left as a result. Most body contouring surgeries are performed following drastic weight loss, upwards of a few hundred pounds. The most common such surgeries are tummy tucks, breast reductions, liposuction, butt lifts, and arm lifts. The goal of body contouring surgery is to remove the excess skin as needed, while reshaping and contouring the area.

How Does Body Contouring Surgery Work?

Body contouring surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure. Following surgery, the area of the body operated on will be quite swollen and sore for a week to ten days, depending on the amount of area covered and the extent of the operation. This will also be about the length of downtime needed. A caregiver may be necessary at this time. Supportive ace wraps will be necessary for weeks following surgery as the area heals. It is important that the incisions are not subject to force, abrasion, or excessive motion during recovery time. Each person's body is different when it comes to scarring. Scars can be expected to be firm and pink for six weeks. It is important to note that they will lighten with time. The more invasive the surgery, the longer the time needed in order to recover.

Body contouring is not cheap. One can expect the average price of a full body lift to be around $30,000 while various body parts can vary from $500-$10,000. Cost is often determined on where you are getting the work done and taking into account personal details such as age and total extensiveness of surgery.
