Body contouring Q&A

What is body contouring?

Body contouring is a treatment Dr. Avila offers to address excess skin. She knows that hanging, drooping skin can get in the way of feeling your best. Even if you’ve reached your body goals, it can hide your best self if your skin isn’t properly contoured to your body.

Fortunately, with body contouring, she has a way to address this issue directly. Body contouring is a surgical procedure during which Dr. Avila removes excess skin and contours the remaining skin over the body area, and the result is a tightened, smoothed area.

Who gets body contouring?

Dr. Avila uses body contouring to help a wide range of patients. This procedure is particularly impactful for patients who have lost a significant amount of weight but are being held back from looking their best by their now-excess skin.

It’s also helpful for women after childbirth and people who experience sagging skin as they age. Over the years, your body produces less collagen, the protein that should keep your skin elastic.

If collagen loss has led you to hanging, drooping skin, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Avila if body contouring is right for you.

What types of body contouring are available?

To help her patients reach their body goals, Dr. Avila offers three distinct types of body contouring:

  • Brachioplasty. If you’re ready to say goodbye to bat wings, this procedure could be for you. During a brachioplasty, Dr. Avila corrects sagging in your upper arms, removing extra skin and toning the area.
  • Abdominoplasty. Also called a tummy tuck, this procedure is ideal if you have extra stomach skin. Dr. Avila offers it to both men and women to help them get the flattest stomach possible. Many women also choose this procedure after childbirth.
  • Thigh lift. Sagging thigh skin doesn’t have to leave you avoiding shorts and beach vacations. With a thigh lift, Dr. Avila rejuvenates the area, helping you feel confident about your legs again.

Whether excess skin on your arms, stomach, or thighs is keeping you from your best body, Dr. Avila is here to help. For more information about body contouring, call the Bellefontaine office at 937.404.9917.
