Not all body fat was created equal. No matter how diligently you diet and exercise, persistent pockets of unsightly fat might still remain. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can help you with a number of procedures that will help you achieve your ideal look: toned, healthy, and ready for the world. Richmond Plastic Surgeons provides some of the highest quality body contouring Richmond has to offer. We have priority placed on safety, security, and your ability to live life the way you’ve always wanted.

What Exactly Is Body Contouring?

Certain types of body fat are known to be stubborn, even when we do our best to eat right and exercise regularly.

If you’ve found yourself dealing with excess skin as a result of pregnancy or weight loss, or just desire a more trim appearance in general, our body contouring procedures offer the perfect step towards your physical ideal.

Our board-certified surgeons zero in on these troublesome areas, eliminating undesirable pockets of fat or excess skin with cutting-edge technology, backed by over 20 years’ of cumulative experience. We have several surgical options to help you find the right look for your body type and personal goals, including:

Some of the Benefits of Body Contouring

The benefits of body sculpting at Richmond Plastic Surgeons are many:

  • Trimming persistent fat on various parts of the body
  • Tightening and toning the underlying muscles
  • Removing inadequately elastic excess skin
  • Enhancing your natural, shapely contours
  • Boosting your confidence, so you can live your healthiest life

Each procedure is customized to your unique needs, based on your personal goals.

Is Body Contouring Right for Me?

While body contouring can help you look exactly the way you want, it should be noticed that it is NOT a weight-loss solution. Our expert surgeons might recommend that you continue to lose weight via healthy means, such as eating right and exercising, before undergoing one of our body contouring procedures.

Given that body sculpting often involves general anesthesia, you should be in good health before your procedure. Your surgeon will provide the expert guidance needed to minimize any risk for complications.

What Should I Do Before My Body Contouring Procedure?

Our Richmond body contouring procedures provide immediate and long-term benefits for men and women alike. Of course, an optimum outcome depends on the skill and expertise of your surgeon, which is why the staff at Richmond Plastic Surgeons places such a high priority on both experience and safety.

Our goal is to leave you feeling confident about the way you look, while ensuring that you feel comfortable and safe about your procedure.

Every procedure involves a consultation beforehand, to answer any questions you might have, and put your mind at ease.

What Should I Expect During My Body Contouring Consultation?

We’ll determine if you are a good candidate for body sculpting by walking you through an in-depth evaluation. You surgeon will make an expert recommendation based on questions like:

  • Do you live a healthy and active lifestyle?
  • Are you near your ideal weight?
  • For women, do you plan on having children in the future?
  • Do you have any medical conditions or take medications that may increase your risk during surgery or your chances of gaining weight in the future?
  • What are your expectations and motivation for having body sculpting?

Will My Body Contouring Procedure Leave Scars?

Our body sculpting procedures involve incisions made in areas that take great care to leave less noticeable scars, so you can enjoy confidence in your appearance. Your surgeon may also recommend one of our MedSpa non-surgical treatments to help with this goal.

When Will I See the Results?

The results of body sculpting are immediately noticeable! You will, however, experience some swelling for a few months. Once this swelling subsides, you’ll enjoy the complete results of your body contouring procedure.

How Long Will the Results of Body Contouring Last?

The results of body contouring are permanent. Keep in mind, though, that these procedures won’t stop the effects of weight gain, pregnancy, or aging.

How Much Does Body Contouring Cost in Richmond?

Body contouring is not covered by most insurance policies. We’ll provide you with a detailed cost after your consultation, so you can be prepared to pay for the procedure. We accept several payment options, and financing is available through CareCredit®.
