About Body Contouring
The term body contouring is one used in the cosmetic surgery world to illustrate a collection of surgeries that can help to sculpt a more voluptuous silhouette. Women and men who have undergone drastic weight loss or whose weight has changed frequently over time may desire body contouring to remove fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt the body. Body contouring can also be used for those who have found that at their age, diet and exercise are not as effective at shaping their bodies. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters performs many body contouring choices, from abdominoplasty, liposuction, and breast lift surgery to fat grafting and laser skin tightening procedures. The options for sculpting your new body are endless.
You may be a great candidate for body contouring if you have loose skin, droopy body parts (like the buttocks or breasts), or stubborn fat that is not responsive to diet and exercise. The hips, flanks, neck, abdomen, and lower back, for example, can each collect fat, causing unsightly bulges. Great candidates for this procedure are New Orleans, LA women and men who are at their goal weight and wish for a firmer, more chiseled shape.

At your initial visit, Dr. Walters will devise an aesthetic treatment plan for you. This could include both nonsurgical and surgical treatments. Surgeries, such as breast lift or augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty, typically require the use of general anesthesia. The goal during surgery is to create small incisions that can be hidden behind clothing, and to minimize unsightly fat and loose skin, revealing a thinner, tighter silhouette. Nonsurgical services are typically completed without any need for sedation. This commonly includes laser skin tightening, radiofrequency treatments, and CoolSculpting.
What to Expect
If your treatment plan includes a surgical procedure, you can expect to be sent home to heal and recover afterward. Nonsurgical services usually do not require rest and recovery. It's not uncommon for our patients to undergo many procedures at once on multiple body parts, which could require staying overnight. Body contouring was created to sculpt your body, so whether you have chosen nonsurgical or surgical treatments, or some of each, you can expect a thinner, trimmer silhouette and a more curvaceous physique.
