The Body Contouring is a Cosmetic Plastic Surgery procedure which restores a beautiful shape to the body. Various procedures are done under Body Contouring procedures as per the need of patient such as:
- Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty
- Body Lift or Belt Lipectomy or Circumferential Abdominoplasty
- Arm Lift or Brachioplasty
- Thigh Lift
- Buttock lift
Tummy tuck – Abdominoplasty
The tummy is the area of the body that undergoes the most transformation during pregnancy as it expands to allow more space for the growing womb.
Also a Cesarean section can impair the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Any female having excess skin on abdomen which is not responding to diet or exercise, can benefit by a “tummy tuck.”
Advantages of Tummy Tuck
This surgery removes excess abdominal fat and skin from extreme weight gain or from pregnancy.
It tightens the abdominal area & improves the muscle tone.
Thus it restores the waistline and contours of the abdomen.
Dr. Bembde can also perform a mini Abdominoplasty, which does not include releasing the umbilicus (belly button). A good candidate for this procedure has excess skin and fat only below the belly button.
Liposuction of the flanks is often combined with either the mini or the full Abdominoplasty.
Women having multiple pregnancies, whose skin stretched beyond its elasticity, prefer this procedure. Added advantage of Tummy Tuck is that, Stretch marks also get improved after surgery, especially those below the navel.
Circumferential Abdominoplasty Procedure
Circumferential Abdominoplasty, often known as a Belt Lipectomy or a “body lift”, not only involves the abdominal area but the back, hip and waistline. This operation simultaneously takes care of belly fat & loose inelastic, hanging skin that extends from the abdomen to the sides, flabby buttocks and thighs and also repositions the weakened muscles.This procedure starts with a belt like incision made around the waist, and excess fat and skin is removed. Upper skin and tissue is pulled down and lower skin and tissue pulled up giving you a tighter and more youthful looking body. The scar fades over time.
A Body Lift surgery is an ideal procedure required for patients who have lost significant weight and now having remnant loose skin & fatty tissue. After weight loss, the fatty tissue goes away but the overlying skin fails to contract and remains loose. This can occur in the neck, arms, back, breast, abdomen, buttocks and inner thighs. A circumferential tummy tuck or ‘Belt Lipectomy removes excess skin and fat of the abdomen along with the backside and hips as well.
For the inner thighs and buttocks the treatment is, removing and tightening the excess skin combined with liposuction as needed. Body lifts can be combined with other procedures for a complete rejuvenation of the body, including liposuction or surgery of the arms, chin, etc.
Good candidates for body lift are men and women who are in good health and are looking to improve excess skin and fat along the middle section of the body.
The surgery takes about four to five hours to complete and is performed with general anesthesia. The recovery after the body lift takes about three weeks. Patients need to wear a compression garment during this time. More strenuous activities are started after four to six weeks.
The back lift for ‘Back Rolls’ is a procedure which produces a slimmer & more defined contour to the back. This procedure may be performed as either a lower back lift or upper back lift. The upper and lower back lift procedures can produce dramatic results that are simply not possible with any other technique.
The lower back lift technique is often performed as part of the lower body lift; however, these techniques can be performed on their own as well. With the lower back lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the lower back and the buttocks are lifted.
With the upper back lift, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper back and from beneath the bra line area.
The procedure is takes about two hours to complete. The incision for the upper back lift is located within the confines of the back portion of the bra which is worn during the preoperative marking session. This allows the incision and resulting scar to be concealed by the bra. For the lower back lift, the incision runs across the back above the buttocks, allowing for the creation of a natural, slim waist and elevated buttocks.
Most patients can return to work within ten days; however full recovery and return to more strenuous activities takes approximately six weeks.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
An Arm Lift, also known as Brachioplasty, is used to treat a loose inelastic skin and excess fat deposits between the underarm and elbow.
Skin loses elasticity and becomes loose and saggy due to ageing or dramatic weight loss. Excessive fat deposits are those that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise alone. Sometimes referred to a ‘Bat Wings’, the flabby skin of the upper arm can be irritating, unpleasant to look at, and eventually make tight sleeves extremely uncomfortable.
The Arm Lift procedure is performed under tumescent anesthesia & sedation and takes around 2 hours. An incision is made in the armpit and can extend in length depending on the treatment and correction needed. Unwanted skin and fat is removed, and then the skin is redraped to reveal the more natural contours of the arms as well as a more proportionate appearance.
As with any surgical procedure an incision is required. Scarring will depend on your body’s natural healing process and can take a good 6 months to fade.
Who is the best candidate?
People with excessive loose skin and unwanted fat deposits are ideally suited to the Arm Lift procedure. If you suffer with mild to moderate loose skin, your arms may be more suitable to treat with a Liposuction alone and/or combined Skin Tightening Procedure.
Recovery usually takes between 2 to 6 weeks. During this time, strenuous activity should be avoided. A compression garment is worn for around 3 weeks after the surgery. This helps with post-operative swelling, assists in the healing process.
An Arm Lift can enhance your appearance and confidence.
Buttock Lift & Buttock Enlargement or Brazilian Butt Lift
A buttock lift (also known as belt Lipectomy) improves and/or removes excess, sagging buttock and thigh skin that has developed as a result of weight loss, aging and gravity, or genetics. By raising and tightening the skin over the buttocks, a buttock lift makes the buttocks appear less saggy, dimpled or wrinkled. In this surgery, the incision is made at the waist & excess skin and fat is removed. The skin is then tightened and closed in layers.
After surgery, a sterile dressing and compression garment are applied which tightly holds the skin in to reduce swelling and aid in the natural tightening of the skin.
Buttock enlargement or Buttock Augmentation
It is a popular cosmetic treatment for those who feel their buttocks are too flat or does not have enough of a lift. Recently, the buttock is becoming a more prominent attribute with women.
A buttock enlargement is intended to not only enhance the look of the buttock area, but offer it a better shape and lift. It also adds proportion to women who might have a larger breast size and feel that the buttock area is hindering their womanly proportions.
Bembde Hospital also offer Brazilian butt lift procedures using the patient’s own fat without the use of artificial gluteal implants for more natural looking results.
The procedure is an ideal for individuals with surplus fat in areas such as the abdomen, hips, flanks or thighs. Excess fat from the selected donor site is collected using safe, minimally invasive liposuction procedure. The extracted fat is processed and purified. It is then injected into the buttocks to improve volume and contour. The surgeon carefully injects the fat at diverse depths and areas of the buttocks to enhance proportion and to meet personalized goals.
Compared to implants, the Brazilian butt lift provides more natural looking results as well as many other benefits like Firmer, rounder buttocks, softer skin, etc. Use of the patients own fat instead of implants reduces the risk of artificial material in the body, reduced side effects and discomfort. Also Liposuction has added advantage of removing excessive fat from donor sites which also gets better contour.
