We are all conditioned to think that the perfect combination of diet and exercise should be enough to achieve that perfectly sculpted body. But, if you have been doing everything the experts tell you to do, and tired of not seeing the results you want despite hitting the gym or blazing the trails regularly, body contouring in Manhattan may be the next step for you.
Body contouring helps reduce excess pockets of fat, as well as tighten loose skin as a result of dramatic weight loss. One of Manhattan’s top-female plastic surgeons Dr. Aviva Preminger offers both surgical and nonsurgical procedures for body contouring that are ideal for both men and women.
Here is a look at the most commonly performed procedures to sculpt and contour the body.
Safely performed for decades, liposuction provides near immediate results, while most nonsurgical forms of fat removal won’t reflect results until about one to three months. Because of the thin surgical cannula used in the liposuction procedure, it can safely remove fat from different areas of the body, making it a versatile treatment. Most people report that they feel minimal discomfort following a liposuction procedure. The best part about liposuction is that once the fat is gone, it’s gone forever!
Another surgical procedure that is ideal for removing excess abdominal fat as well as tighten loose or flabby skin is a tummy tuck. Tummy tucks most often are performed following dramatic weight loss, pregnancy, or aging. Many times liposuction and a tummy tuck are performed together to maximize results. Dr. Preminger offers both full and mini tummy tucks, depending on your need for an improved appearance. Keep in mind that a tummy tuck often requires an extensive healing period that may mean you need to book time off from work, as well as arrange for a sitter if you have children or pets. Also, plan on not doing any housework or heavy lifting for several weeks or more.
A noninvasive fat reduction procedure, CoolSculpting is ideal for those wanting to reduce pockets of stubborn fat but that do not want to or are unable to undergo surgery. CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells by freezing them, and then the body releases the cells through its waste. It may take one to three months before you see results. Also, you may need more
than one CoolSculpting treatment in a targeted area. With CoolSculpting, there is no downtime, and you can resume your usual activities the same day.
Keep in mind, however, that although these forms of fat reduction are designed to last permanently, you can still gain new weight. It is imperative that you maintain a healthy diet and moderate regimen of exercise to maintain your results.
