Body contouring refers to procedures that change the shape (contour) of a part of your body by removing excess skin and underlying fat. Procedures include liposuction, tummy tuck, body lift, arm lift, thigh lift and more.
Body contouring with Anne Nickodem, M.D., will consist of a combination of procedures to reduce excess skin throughout your body. Your surgery may include:
Tummy Tuck – Tummy tuck removes excess abdominal fat and skin; typically, it also reestablishes weakened or separated muscles.
Buttock Lift – A buttock lift improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin resulting from weight loss, aging and gravity, or genetics.
Breast Lift – During a breast lift procedure excess skin is removed and breasts are tightened and lifted.
Arm Lift – Removes excess hanging skin from the underarm and reshapes the under portion of the upper arm – from the armpit area to the elbow.
Thigh Lift – Reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, for smoother skin and better proportioned contours.
Body Lift – Excess sagging fat and skin are removed to treat conditions caused in part by poor tissue elasticity.
Liposuction – Removes excess fat from a wide variety of areas including the chin and neck, hips, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, knees and ankles, and buttocks.
During a body contouring consultation in Annandale, Dr. Nickodem will carefully assess your condition and listen to your expectations in order to formulate an effective treatment plan. Your body contouring procedure can be performed with the individual surgeries performed as a combination surgery or staged over time. Each surgery is designed to improve your skin’s firmness and appearance in their specific areas (the abdomen, breasts/chest, back, arms and thighs).
