Franciscan Health offers body shaping surgery, or body contouring, performed by plastic surgeons who are trained and experienced in full body plastic surgery procedures to remove excess skin and fat for a slimmer and more toned physique.
The physicians at Franciscan Health offer reconstructive and cosmetic body contouring surgery with particular expertise in body sculpting and liposuction for both women and men. Many people choose to have body contouring surgery to tighten or reduce the size of their buttocks, abdomen, waist, hips and outer thighs. Some people combine various procedures to achieve full body plastic surgery results.
Sometimes, even the healthiest of diets and vigorous fitness regimens are not enough to achieve a sleek and slim figure. Hereditary factors, aging, weight fluctuations and overexposure to the sun can all cause excess, loose skin to appear on various parts of the body. This, paired with stubborn fat deposits that do not respond to weight loss efforts, can create an unattractive shape. Patients who are self-conscious or experience rashes, infections or restriction in mobility due to heavy, loose skin can benefit from body contouring, a set of plastic surgery procedures designed to create a slim and trim body shape.
The results of body shaping surgery are contingent on the expertise of the plastic surgeon who performs the procedure. The plastic surgeons in the Franciscan Health network have years of collective experience helping countless patients restore smoother, more flattering body contours.
