What Is Body Contouring?

Also known as fat reduction, body contouring is actually a term that covers a variety of procedures - both surgical and nonsurgical - to reduce and/or remove skin and fat to reshape your body after dramatic weight loss. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers several different options for body contouring in Miami to address various areas of your body. When you meet with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz, you will discuss your concerns and what you’d like to have done. He will then customize a plan for your specific needs, particularly if you’re interested in multiple procedures.

Why Should I Receive Body Contouring?

The aging process can affect the body in various ways, so too can change in diet. Many times after extreme weight loss, your body will develop areas of extra loose skin that muscle toning cannot correct.

This can lead to feeling self-conscious and still unhappy with showing off your body, such as during the summer or at the beach. Body contouring is meant to address all areas of the body that can be affected by changes in your body. Your thighs, back, double chin, arms, and stomach can all show signs of sagging, wrinkly, and loose skin leftover from your weight loss.

Miami Body Contouring Procedures

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers several different options for your body contouring procedure. Depending on what area of your body you would like to work and to what extent, one or more procedures may be used.

VASERLipo

The name is an acronym for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance”. In essence, it’s a form of liposuction that employs ultrasound waves at targeted areas in your body to break up fat cells. Once they are liquefied, it’s easier to extract them. This results in less downtime and more even contours than standard liposuction.

Tummy Tuck

Alternatively known as abdominoplasty, this is a surgical procedure performed to remove extra skin and fat from the mid-section. This also usually will restore separated or weakened muscles, which creates a firmer, smoother abdomen.

Mommy Makeover

This is a combination of procedures designed to help restore the shape of your body after birth or from physical changes due to weight loss. During your consultation with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz, a combination of abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, and/or breast lift and complementary body contouring procedures will be discussed based on your aesthetic goals.

J-plasma

This procedure is minimally invasive and meant to tighten your skin. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will apply cold plasma energy under your skin. This causes an instant contraction that shrinks and tightens the skin. J-plasma is often used in conjunction with liposuction for a comprehensive body contouring treatment and superior results.

Depending on whether your procedure is surgical or nonsurgical, you may be under IV sedation.

Body Contouring FAQ

Body contouring is recommended if you’ve undergone extreme weight loss and have excessive skin or stubborn areas of fat. You might also be interested in body contouring if your body has gone through recent changes, such as childbirth.

After non-surgical body contouring procedures such as J-plasma, recovery times are fast and you can usually return to regular activities within one week. Surgical procedures such as a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, or liposuction, however, typically result in longer recovery periods of up to 2-3 weeks. It is important to listen to your body and allow yourself time to heal for the best long-term results.

If you have a procedure with no incisions, there will not be any scarring. However, any time there is an incision, there will be scars. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will make incisions to minimize the look of scarring. In addition, your scars will fade over time.

Costs are dependent on which procedure(s) you have. Because these are generally elective in nature, insurance providers do not usually cover the costs. Financing and payment options are available. If you need body contouring for medical reasons, however, your insurance may be able to cover part or all of the cost.

While you will be sore and tender, the pain is usually minimal. If you need a pain prescription, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz can provide you with one. There will also likely be some bruising and swelling.

If you are interested in undergoing body contouring, you must have a consultation with Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz so he can evaluate you and make sure you’re eligible before you can schedule and procedures.
