Who is a candidate for body contouring surgery?

Your Body Contouring Surgery Consultation
During your consultation, Dr. Yugueros will discuss your desires, expectations, and concerns as well as limits and risks of body-contouring surgery. She will review your medical history, thoroughly examine your overall body contours, and take pictures of the areas you would like her to improve.
Dr. Yugueros will recommend the surgical options or combination of surgical options that will yield the best results for your goals. If you need more than 1 surgery to achieve your overall body-contouring goals, Dr. Yugueros can help you prioritize the order of areas to improve.
Options for body contouring surgery can include:
- Liposuction to remove small amounts of fat from your hips, thighs, and abdomen for smooth, pleasing contours
- Tummy tuck to remove excess skin and tighten abdominal muscles for a slender waistline and flatter stomach
- Arm lift to remove excess skin and create tighter, firmer upper arms
- Thigh lift to tighten excess skin and smooth your thighs
- Lower body and buttock lift to create smoother, tighter contours in your lower body
- Breast augmentation, breast lift with or without implants to restore natural breast volume and lift the bust line
The Body Contouring Procedure, Recovery, and Results
Body contouring is preformed under general anesthesia. Depending on the length and extent of your surgery, Dr. Yugueros might recommend that you stay 1 or 2 night nights in the hospital.
Some procedures for body contouring require more time to return to normal activities than others. Please visit pages for the procedures you are planning to have to learn more about the procedure, recovery time, and results.
Scars from body contouring can be visible and are sometimes extensive.
