Get Rid of Those Last Few Pounds with Body Contouring

There’s nothing quite as frustrating as dealing with the last few stubborn pounds of fat. After months of intense exercise routines and careful attention to a well-balanced diet, what options are left when the stubborn pounds linger? 

Body contouring surgeries can get the shape you’ve been working hard to achieve — even if diet and exercise haven’t delivered the final result you wanted. 

Award-winning plastic surgeon Dr. Alfred Sofer and our team here at Alfred Sofer, MD, in Fairfield, Connecticut, help you reach your aesthetic goals and shed those last stubborn pounds, using the surgical techniques of body contouring.

In this article, we take a closer look at what surgical body contouring is and how it can help you achieve your dream silhouette. 

Can’t shake those last few pounds?

Even when you reach your goal weight, you might encounter stubborn fatty deposits, and unfortunately, this fat often accumulates in one of these common problem areas: the belly, inner thighs, arms, and buttocks. These are common problem areas, and because they are so frustrating, you may hear these stubborn areas referred to by their less-than-desirable names:

So, why does fat linger even if you diet and exercise? Once you reach a healthy weight, your body doesn’t want to lose any more weight, and no amount of diet or exercise can ever spot-reduce unwanted body fat. You might build more lean mass and focus on developing certain muscles, but fat reduction simply doesn’t work that way. 

In addition, if you lose a significant amount of weight, you may have residual loose skin as a result of overly stretched skin. This skin is loose, flabby, and can contribute to the number on the scale.

How surgical body contouring helps enhance your silhouette

Depending on where your body carries the excess fat, Dr. Sofer recommends the appropriate body contouring surgery. The following body contouring surgeries can help you lose those last few pounds by removing excess skin and stubborn pockets of fat:

Depending on your unique needs, you might consider a more unique approach to body contouring. Mommy Makeovers. For example, help yourself reach your aesthetic goals by combining a number of procedures. Some women may select a tummy tuck and a breast augmentation to restore their pre-pregnancy body. 

Depending on which procedure you choose, the techniques vary. For example, our team may use liposuction to remove excess fat during a tummy tuck. We also remove loose, flabby skin on the abdomen. As a result, the scale shifts (once the excess fat and skin is removed), but your silhouette is enhanced, too. That’s because we also tighten your abdominal muscles for a firmer, flatter stomach. 

There’s an art to body contouring. It isn’t just about removing the most amount of excess fat. Rather, our goal is to remove unwanted fat while enhancing your curves.
