At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, Dr. Joseph Fata offers a complete selection of body contouring options. These surgical treatments can be used alone or in specific combinations to sculpt and tone the body - and many offer permanent results if care is taken after surgery to maintain them. During your initial consultation at our Indianapolis office, this can be discussed in greater detail as Dr. Fata answers any questions you may have and provides you with honest and useful information to help you select the most beneficial treatments for your needs.
To schedule your body contouring consultation at our Indianapolis office, please call 317-575-9152 today. Dr. Fata provides personalized body contouring treatments for men and women living in and around Indianapolis including Clermont, Plainfield, and Fountaintown.
Dr. Fata offers both tumescent and ultrasonic liposuction. These techniques help to reduce trauma while maximizing fat removal for optimal benefit.
Liposuction can be used on any area of the body and is used as both a stand-alone procedure and to refine and enhance other body contouring procedures. During your initial consultation, Dr. Fata will carefully evaluate your problem areas and help you determine if liposuction is the best fit for your needs.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Tummy tuck surgery (abdominoplasty) addresses excess skin and stubborn fat deposits in and around the abdomen. With tummy tuck surgery, Dr. Fata can tighten abdominal muscles, tone and define the belly, and produce an ideally contoured midsection.
Very effective on its own, abdominoplasty is also typically included in both post weight loss body contouring procedures and mommy makeover surgeries.
Dr. Fata offers a range of lift procedures for the body. These include:
- Arm Lift - Dr. Fata can provide a short scar arm lift to reduce visible scarring or a traditional arm lift where incisions are hidden in between triceps and biceps
- Thigh Lift - upper thigh lift eliminates excess fat and sagging skin in between the groin and the knees. Thigh lift sculpts and tones the upper leg, but does not address cellulite
- Post Weight Loss Body Lift. Combining body contouring procedures helps address the impacts of rapid weight loss, such as those accompanying bariatric surgery. For more comprehensive body lift procedures, Dr. Fata may use liposuction along with other surgery techniques to reduce bulk, eliminate loose and sagging skin, and complete the toning your weight loss surgery began.
If you are considering body contouring after weight loss, all of your options will be covered in detail during your initial consultation.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
The mommy makeover procedure is not strictly body contouring surgery, but it is used to restore ideal dimensions to those areas of the body most impacted by pregnancy. Tummy tuck surgery, which is used to address separated abdominal muscles as well as excess skin and fat in the stomach area, is nearly always included in this procedure. So too is liposuction and thigh lift. Other options that may be included in the mommy makeover procedure include:
- Breast lift
- Breast augmentation
These procedures are not limited to mothers, however. Breast surgery, labiaplasty, and other female-specific procedures are suitable for all good candidates.
Body Sculpting Questions
What is body contouring?
Body contouring refers to surgical procedures that are designed to improve the size, shape, and profile of the body. A relatively broad term, body contouring includes sculpting and toning procedures such as liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift, along with fat transfer, Brazilian butt lift, and combination procedures like the mommy makeover that can be used to both augment and tone specific areas of the body.
How long does body contouring last?
Depending on the procedure you have had performed, body contouring can last for a lifetime. Once fat and skin have been removed, they cannot grow back. So long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, results from liposuction, abdominoplasty, and body lift procedures should last forever.
Is body contouring permanent?
Excess, unnecessary, and unwanted fat and skin removed through body contouring will not “grow back.” Failure to take care of your body can allow new fat to accumulate and allow for stretching of the skin, making how you treat yourself the biggest factor in the longevity of your results.
It is important to note that procedures such as fat transfer and Brazilian butt lift may last for several years, but are not likely permanent as fat removal. It is equally important to remember that the forces of gravity and time will continue to impact your frame and can, over time, alter your results. Much of this can be countered by leading a healthy and active lifestyle, but age, genetics, and environment will play a role in the amount of time your results last.
