Have you lost a significant amount of amount of weight and looking to remove that unwanted excess skin and sagging fat? Body contouring can help eliminate it. Body contouring removes all excess sagging fat and skin while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. The final result is a healthier appearance with smoother contours.
At RinkleFree Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, with locations near King of Prussia, Newtown and Doylestown, PA, we can help you with all of your body contouring needs.
One of the most common body contouring procedures is a tummy tuck surgery (technically known as abdominoplasty). A tummy tuck results in a comprehensive reshaping of the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin from the abdominal area while tightening the abdominal muscles.
This body contouring option is perfect for those who are unable to lose weight in that area of the body. Body contouring is also popular following pregnancy or weight loss due to skin and muscles that have sagged as a result of the skin being stretched.
Tummy tuck surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes anywhere from one to three hours to complete. Incisions are made in discrete locations to limit scarring. Excess skin and fat are then elevated off the muscles, then tightened which results in a flatter abdomen and a smaller waist. Minor discomfort is common for a couple of weeks following surgery.
Results are noticeable after a few weeks. However, final results may not be noticeable until several months post-surgery. A healthy diet and regular exercise are needed to maintain results.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A Brazilian butt lift is another form of body contouring that involves removing a patient’s body fat from one area — such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs and bra-line — and injecting it into the buttocks and outer hips. A Brazilian butt lift is performed to reshape flat or sagging buttocks or to help reshape disproportionate appearances that occur from massive weight loss.
Results from a Brazilian butt lift will fully show in less than a year.

Body contouring procedures address sagging, excess skin and fat. These procedures can define the contours made by your body, such as the line of your hips or the flatness of your abdominal area. Oftentimes, body contouring procedures can be combined. For example, a tummy tuck may be combined with liposuction to achieve optimal results. During this process, areas such as the underarms, breasts, abdominal area, buttocks, and upper thighs undergo skin tightening. Incisions are made in made in unobtrusive areas to minimize scarring.
Dr. Skalicky goes to great lengths to ensure that the surrounding tissues are left unharmed and the recovery process is as easy as possible.
