Body Contouring: How to Shave Off Those Holiday Pounds
January 20, 2020
The holidays are a fun time, with family gatherings, work parties, and loved ones all around. However, they can also mean a lot of food, drinks, and not working out. This time of the year is when people gain the most weight. To help get rid of those pounds gained during the holiday, there are various body contouring treatments that will give you slim contours again. At DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery, Dr. DiFrancesco offers surgical and non-surgical options for body contouring.
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgeries performed every year. It can remove fat from many body areas including the abdomen, arms, thighs, waist, and more. With liposuction, you can get back to the slim, shapely body that you’ve been missing. This surgery is best done on people who have mild-to-moderate excess fat with good skin elasticity. Liposuction has had many advancements. Dr. DiFrancesco will work with you to find the best liposuction technique that will provide you with the best results.
If your excess fat and skin are concentrated in your abdominal region, the tummy tuck may be a good option for you. This procedure uses an incision along the bikini line where excess skin and fat will be removed through. This surgery flattens and firms your stomach for a shapelier appearance. A tummy tuck is popular with women who have had children so that they can get back to their bodies before pregnancy. There are multiple techniques for performing a tummy tuck which Dr. DiFrancesco will go over with you during a consultation.
Smart Lipo is a type of liposuction that uses laser energy to remove fat. Smart Lipo uses laser energy to emulsify fat in the treatment area. The laser heat also promotes skin tightening to contour the body. This form of liposuction is gentler and comes with quicker recovery time. The laser heat cauterizes blood vessels to reduce bleeding and bruising, plus it stimulates collagen production in the skin for a tightening effect.
One other popular procedure that is done to get rid of the holiday weight is Sculpsure. This treatment is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. It uses laser energy to melt fat cells in specific body areas. It is achieved by directing the laser energy into specific areas that cause the fat cells to be released from surrounding tissue. This results in a slimmer appearance.
