What is body contouring?
Body contouring is a broad term that can be used to describe many different procedures performed by Dr. Geoghegan. These procedures are designed to remove excess fat and sagging skin from problem areas that remain even after significant weight loss has been achieved. People who have lost a lot of weight due to diet and exercise or after weight loss surgery often have loose skin remaining. With body contouring, plastic surgeons can help their patients get the beautifully-shaped bodies they’ve always wanted.

What body contouring options are available?
Plastic surgeons offer a variety of procedures that can remove excess fat and skin to contour the body into a more attractive silhouette. Different procedures focus on different parts of the body, and contouring can be performed almost anywhere from head to toe. Popular body contouring procedures include facelifts, breast lifts, tummy tucks, lower body lifts, medial thigh lifts, and arm lifts.

Who is a good candidate for body contouring?
These procedures typically work best for people who have lost significant amounts of weight, only to have loose and sagging skin left over. The best candidates for body contouring procedures are in good overall health, following a healthy diet and are at their stable goal weight. People who want to undergo body contouring should also stop smoking if they currently do and make sure they have realistic goals.
