Body Contouring

Body contouring is an all-encompassing term for body sculpting and shaping cosmetic procedures. The San Diego plastic surgeon can help you determine which surgically invasive or non-invasive procedure will produce the results that you desire.

Invasive body contouring procedures include:

Non-Invasive body contouring procedures include:

Most people have heard of tummy tucks and the various sorts of implants a patient can receive to improve their appearance, but lesser known are the new and FDA-approved procedures to sculpt the body without surgery.

CoolSculpting for instance is a very recently approved procedure that uses cooling techniques to literally freeze the fat off of your body. This is not a good procedure for someone with a lot of weight to lose, but if you have an extra 10-15 1bs of fat scattered throughout your abdominal or back regions, CoolSculpting could be right for you.

The area for treatment will first be covered with a protective gel. The surgeon will then apply the vacuum-like applicator to the skin, resulting in a cool, numbing sensation. What results is damage to the fat cells in the area that will eventually shed themselves naturally over the coming months. This procedure is especially affective with a diet and exercise regimen. There is no pain or anesthesia involved, just perfect for those smaller problem areas on a person already on their way to their weight loss goals.
