What is Body Contouring?

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Sean Kelishadi, performs body contouring procedures at his Newport Beach practice, SSK Plastic Surgery. Body contouring consists of a variety of different procedures that are used to create a slimmer or shapelier profile for those who have undergone significant weight loss. Procedures such as liposuction, breast lift surgery, tummy tuck, or nonsurgical skin tightening treatments can be combined to create the look you desire. Your body contouring procedure will be dependent on your specific body shape, area(s) of treatment, and your cosmetic goals. Dr. Kelishadi will work diligently with you to create a plan that reduces fat, removes excess skin, and tightens the areas that have lost shape. Our overall goal at SSK Plastic Surgery, in Newport Beach, CA, is to help you achieve the look you never thought possible. 

Who is an ideal candidate for Body contouring?

Body contouring can be used on anyone who notices sagging skin, deflated body parts, such as the breast or buttock, or who have fat in areas that’s hard to lose. The neck, abdomen, lower back, hips, and flanks are examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, creating unwanted bulges. The best candidates for body contouring are at a healthy, ideal weight, and who desire a tighter, more defined figure. If you are a woman considering a body contouring procedure, you may want to consider waiting to have a procedure until you are past all pregnancies.

How does body contouring work?

After your consultation, a body contouring treatment plan will be designed for you that may consist of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create an incision that can be concealed by undergarments, and to remove unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Nonsurgical treatments can typically be performed in our office without sedation. This may include laser skin tightening, laser liposuction, an injectable filler, etc. Body contouring offers many options, allowing us to blend a surgical treatment with a nonsurgical method to maximize results.

What can i Expect after body contouring?

If you are having a surgical procedure you will be sent home to rest and recover. Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It is common for some patients to combine surgical procedures on several areas of the body, which may require an overnight stay. Body contouring is meant to reshape the body. Whether surgical or nonsurgical, or a combination of both, you will notice a slimmer, tighter figure and a more defined profile.

Body Contouring FAQ

How much does body contouring surgery cost?

We determine the cost for body contouring based on your customized treatment plan. During your initial consultation, Dr. Kelishadi will listen to your needs and goals before performing an exam. After closely listening to your goals, he can offer recommendations, create a unique surgical plan, and then provide a cost estimate and review your payment options. SSK Plastic Surgery takes several methods, including low-interest financing.

Will insurance pay for my body contouring surgery?

Often, insurance groups do not cover cosmetic surgeries; however, some patients may qualify for body contouring. If excess skin is the cause of medical problems, like chronic infections, you might be able to apply for reimbursement from your insurance. Coverage depends on your carrier and policy, but if you want to use your insurance, please tell Dr. Kelishadi during your initial consultation. A member of our team at SSK Plastic Surgery can help you work with your insurance for maximum coverage.

What will be part of my body contouring surgery?

We will provide a detailed treatment plan that outlines the number of procedures. Our team typically schedules your body contouring in stages. This depends on your general physical health and how many areas you want to treat. Generally, we will perform each session by targeting one body area, such as the upper parts (abdomen, breasts, arms, neck, face) or lower parts (thighs, butt, knees, hips). We set up the appointments to reduce the possibility of complications, such as blood loss and infection. This also makes your recovery easier and faster.

Will I have scarring after my surgery?

In general, surgical body contouring will cause scarring. Once the incisions heal, many patients report that the scarring is no longer a worry because the procedure provides significant results. As an experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Kelishadi makes an effort to reduce scarring by placing the incisions in easy-to-conceal areas. Additionally, proper aftercare is essential. We may prescribe skin creams to encourage the healing process. Over time, the scars will lighten and blend in with your normal skin.

How long will my body contouring results last?

With proper care, the surgical results of body contouring will last a long time. To help maintain your results, you should keep a steady weight. Dramatic changes in your weight or pregnancy can affect your results. Also, your body will continue to age naturally so you may eventually notice loose skin again. Please talk to Dr. Kelishadi about treatments that can help your results last.
