Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a collective term to describe a range of cosmetic surgical procedures. The purpose of each procedure is to define and improve the shape and appearance of different parts of the body. Dr. Sofer can address one body part or many within the same surgery, providing it’s safe to do so.

What are the available body contouring surgeries?

Dr. Sofer offers a number of body contouring surgeries, including: 

  • Arm lift
  • Body contouring after weight loss
  • Brazilian butt lift
  • Liposuction
  • Mommy Makeover
  • Thigh lift
  • Tummy tuck

During the initial consultation, Dr. Sofer identifies the areas you wish to address. From this, he recommends the most appropriate treatment – or treatments – to help you achieve your body contouring goals.

What is a Mommy Makeover body contouring treatment?

The female body goes through a lot of change during and after pregnancy. Many women end up with excess skin and lost muscle tone in their breast and abdominal areas caused by swift and significant weight gain and loss. Lower abdominal stretch marks are also common. A Mommy Makeover combines breast augmentation with a tummy tuck to address all these areas at once. The results are uplifted breasts and a tighter, slimmer, smoother stomach area. 

Dr. Sofer aims to restore your self-confidence and help you feel like a new and improved version of yourself after going through childbirth.

What areas benefit from body contouring after weight loss?

If you lose a lot of weight, either through diet or weight loss surgery, you may find yourself with a lot of excess skin. Body contouring can reduce and tighten drooping skin in the following areas.

  • Upper arms
  • Breasts
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Stomach

Dr. Sofer may recommend combining treatments to help you achieve the aesthetic you want with less downtime than if you were to have each separately.

What is the recovery process following body contouring treatments?

Recovery time for body contouring varies between patients and may depend on how many procedures you have at one time. Generally, you can expect your recovery process to look something like the following. 

  • 1-2 hours post-surgery recovery room time
  • Pain medication and muscle relaxants for three days post-surgery
  • Resuming day-to-day living activities after 10-14 days
  • Back to regular exercising after 4-6 weeks
