Body Contouring Q & A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring procedures sculpt and tone your body’s contours for a more refined appearance. If you have excess skin or stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t responded to diet and exercise, these procedures can help you achieve the results you want.

At her practice, Dr. Ayewah tailors your plan to address your needs and goals. She offers surgical and minimally invasive procedures that can target specific areas of concern and create a physique that aligns with your preferences.

Why should I consider body contouring after weight loss?

Weight loss is a transformative experience that can improve your health, boost your confidence, and revitalize your natural energy. However, it can also leave you with excess skin and unwanted bulges that dampen the satisfaction you feel for your new silhouette. 

Body contouring treatments can:

  • Restore your proportions
  • Enhance your confidence and results
  • Complement healthy weight loss efforts
  • Improve your comfort

At Dr. Ayewah’s office, you have access to the latest body contouring treatments for a tighter, smoother physique.

How soon can I get body contouring after losing weight?

You should wait until you’ve almost reached your goal weight before getting body contouring treatments. If you’re still planning to lose weight, body contouring treatments may not be as effective. Continued weight loss may also affect your skin’s elasticity, leading to excess skin.

Body contouring procedures are most effective when you maintain a stable weight. Dr. Ayewah may recommend waiting 6-12 months after losing weight before she performs body contouring. Patients who have undergone weight loss surgery may benefit from a longer recovery period to ensure their weight stabilizes.

What are the different body contouring techniques?

Dr. Ayewah offers many body contouring treatments at her office, including:

Skin removal

Dr. Ayewah specializes in removing excess skin after significant weight loss. This surgical procedure can help you achieve a more streamlined and contoured appearance by removing the loose and sagging skin.

VASER liposuction

This high-definition liposuction uses ultrasound energy to selectively target and remove unwanted fat deposits, resulting in improved body proportions and definition. Dr. Ayewah can pair this procedure with Renuvion (formerly called J-Plasma) skin tightening to promote tighter skin and reduce downtime.

Dr. Ayewah works with you to create a personalized body contouring plan that aligns with your goals and addresses your unique concerns. 

Whether you're looking to tighten loose skin, sculpt stubborn areas of fat, or achieve a combination of both, her expertise and individualized approach ensure that you receive the most effective and transformative results tailored to your specific needs.
