Body Contouring Options in Time for Summer

When planning your summer vacation and you think about laying by the poolside or on the beach, do you imagine yourself wearing your T-shirt? No, we should see ourselves in fitting swimwear with no uncomfortable overhang, or ”too-tight” areas. You shouldn't have to struggle to find swimwear. You shouldn't have to feel uncomfortable in your own skin. At GLOW Surgical Arts, your Redwood City cosmetic surgeons understand that good nutrition and regular exercise do not always produce the results we want. That's why Drs. Paul Gorman and Renee Marshall can use body contouring to get you ready for summer.

GLOW Surgical Arts offers the following types of body contouring procedures:

  • Liposuction is how cosmetic surgeons remove stubborn body fat that otherwise won't disappear. Liposuction is one of the most tried and true types of cosmetic surgery used, and it is less invasive than many other forms of body contouring. It can also be combined with most other body contouring procedures, shortening your overall recovery time.
  • Tummy Tucks are more invasive than liposuction but produce more dramatic results. A tummy tuck, which also is known as an abdominoplasty, is a surgical procedure that contours the abdomen. The skin is smoothed and tightened in a way that cannot be achieved by other means. Tummy tucks are most common for women who want to address concerns following childbirth. This procedure can fix stretch marks, excessive skin, c-section scars, and sagging abdominal muscles.
  • Breast Augmentation is the most common form of body contouring in America. Breast augmentation can be used to correct aesthetic flaws such as asymmetry, lack of volume, or simply a desired larger cup size.
  • Breast Reductions are used to help make the breasts smaller, lighter, or more evenly shaped or sized. Many women are happy with larger breasts in their youth, but as time goes on, your breasts may cause physical pain or you may grow to dislike the contours of your chest. Either way, a breast reduction could be the correct choice for you.
  • Breast Lifts usually are used to help women who are suffering from sagging breasts. Whether it is diminished volume, downward pointing nipples, or just a fall in the bust line, this procedure can be and often is combined with breast augmentation.
  • Arm Lifts are used to remove excess fat from the arm and tighten loose skin. You may not even realize how uncomfortable you are with your own arms until warm weather starts creeping back in and you have to put on your first tank top.
  • Body Lifts entail using a combination of multiple body contouring procedures to fix loose skin and help with personal hygiene. This procedure is common for people who've lost significant amounts of weight but are left with sagging skin.
