Body Contouring in Macon, GA

Sometimes, despite our best efforts to eat right and exercise daily, we still have stubborn fat deposits and sagging skin that just won’t go away. It can be frustrating, leaving you feeling discouraged and dissatisfied with your appearance. At the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Joshua R. Groves, board certified in plastic surgery, offers a variety of body contouring procedures for patients in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area that can dramatically transform your body’s appearance.

What Is Body Contouring/Body Sculpting?

Body contouring, or body sculpting, refers to a set of procedures aimed at improving the shape and appearance of the body. These procedures tighten and smooth skin and reduce fat in areas that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, leaving patients with more defined contours and a slimmer, more toned physique. Body contouring is particularly helpful for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight that has left them with loose, sagging skin.

What Are the Benefits of Body Contouring/Body Sculpting?

In addition to restoring your body’s curves to a more sculpted, youthful appearance, body contouring has been proven to promote overall confidence levels and a more positive self-image. But that’s not all. Patients who undergo body sculpting procedures can also look forward to:

  • More motivation to maintain weight loss: Whether patients have lost weight through diet and exercise or weight-loss surgery, having excess skin removed has shown to increase their motivation to keep the weight off.
  • Increased personal satisfaction: Looking good means feeling good, and patients who undergo body sculpting procedures often report feeling healthier and more satisfied with their personal lives. When you feel good about your body, you are more likely to engage in social activities and lead a healthier lifestyle.
  • Greater physical comfort: Patients who have large folds of excess skin are more prone to developing rashes, skin infections and general irritation. The sagging skin can also make fitting into clothing more difficult and can camouflage weight loss.

Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring/Body Sculpting?

Weight loss, aging, and even genetics can cause unsightly loose skin and fat deposits that won’t budge, even with the strictest diet and exercise regimen. At your consultation at the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Groves will go over your medical history, listen to your concerns and recommend the procedures that will best help you achieve your desired appearance. Dr. Groves will also go over your expectations, as well as review the pros and cons of each procedure. The best candidates for body contouring are adults who have maintained their weight loss for a period of several months and are committed to continuing a healthy nutrition and fitness plan. If you have realistic expectations about your outcome and do not suffer from any medical conditions that might increase surgical risks or impair healing, body sculpting procedures may be right for you.
