Areas treated by body contouring include the neck, upper arms, female and male breasts, abdomen, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees and ankles.
The Beverly Hills Aesthetic Institute provides the following to help contour the body:
Fat Transfer – add volume to enhancements, safe long-lasting, and natural-appering results. Volume is replaced to tissue where fat is diminished.
Fat Injection – Fat is harvested with a special liposuction cannula using sterile techniques in the operating room. Once enough fat is removed from the donor area, it is then purified—excess fluid, blood, and other components are removed. The fat is then placed into the areas requiring augmentation such as face, buttocks, or even hands. The injection needle is usually passed carefully in and out of the areas to be augmented a few times. This creates a ‘grid’ of threads of fat graft.
Fat Grafting – Usually involves removing the fat from one part of the body such as the abdomen, hips or thighs; then purifying it and carefully re-injecting it with the specially designed instruments into the ares requiring augmentation.
Some important facts to know about body contouring:
What is the length of the procedures?
About 2 – 4 Hours
What are the side effects?
Swelling, discomfort and bruising.
What is the recovery time?
Little to no downtime; patients should be able to return to normal activities within a few weeks.
What are the risks?
Small risk of infection and other infrequent complication. Allergic reaction is not a factor for fat injectable fillers because it’s harvested from your own body.
What is involved in the procedure?
After preparing the donor site for removal with local anesthetic, the surgeon will withdraw the fat using a syringe with a large needle or cannula. The transferred fat will then re-vascularize and survive in the new location that needs volume. The autologous fat transfer process will be replaced until the desired correction has been achieved, and may be combined with other surgical procedures for enhanced results.
A more beautiful shape that will last.
