What Does Body Contouring Do?

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


Body contouring is used to sculpt, tone, and define various areas of the body that may be obscured by excess fat and loose or sagging skin. With body contouring, our board-certified plastic surgeon can help to eliminate diet-and-exercise-resistant fat and skin, helping to uncover the beautiful and natural contours lying underneath.

At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joseph Fata offers a full range of body contouring options, including:

  • Liposuction. Designed to eliminate stubborn deposits of fat from nearly any area of the body – from the ankles to the chin – we offer both tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction to help ensure we are meeting the specific needs of each patient
  • Abdominoplasty. Tummy tuck surgery is used to eliminate stubborn fat deposits along with sagging skin from the entire midsection. The procedure can also be used to reattach separated abdominal muscles, which may help prevent low back pain and herniation
  • Labiaplasty. Used to reduce bulky labial tissue, labiaplasty can help to restore comfort, enhance sexual pleasure, and improve clothing options

In some cases, these procedures are combined to address myriad issues impacting the body. For example, comprehensive procedures such as the mommy makeover often include several body contouring options, each designed to address a different concern. During your initial consultation, Dr. Fata will carefully evaluate your frame and listen to your concerns to help you choose which contouring options will work best for your needs.

Does Body Contouring Improve Physical Health?

Body contouring can help to reduce bulky skin and lumpy fat deposits. These things can increase range of motion and act as a springboard for a healthier lifestyle. However, while weight reduction can have a positive impact on your life and experiences, body contouring procedures are not intended to improve your general health.

You can take advantage of your newly contoured frame to engage in more progressive activities and maintain your new size and shape with a thoughtful diet, steps that will absolutely improve your overall health. We will be happy to provide additional information about this during your initial consultation at our Indianapolis office.
