Body Contouring Q & A
Am I a Candidate for Body Contouring if I’m Overweight?
Yes. While certain laser treatments for body contouring are geared toward patients who are not clinically overweight, surgical body contouring can provide significant benefit even if you’re overweight. Additionally, many patients who have recently lost weight as a result of diet, exercise, or bariatric surgery can benefit from body contouring procedures designed to remove extra skin and fat and create a toned, trim look.
Are Body Contouring Procedures Safe?
All surgical procedures are accompanied by some level of inherent risk, such as severe allergic reaction to the anesthesia used in surgery or development of infection at the surgical site following the procedure. However, body contouring procedures have been in practice for many years and are largely safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. The percentage of patients who experience complications is meager.
Which Body Contouring Procedures are Offered at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery?
The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery offers:
- Liposuction: a procedure designed to remove excess fat from multiple areas of the body
- Body Lift: a procedure addressing multiple areas at once

- SculpSure: a non-invasive laser treatment designed to remove up to 24% of body fat in a concentrated location

Can I Have More Than One Procedure at the Same Time?
In many cases, yes. Drs. Soares and Soares will carefully evaluate your medical history and current health to determine whether you can receive more than one treatment in a single procedure and create a treatment plan customized for your safety and satisfaction.
How Much Time Away From Work is Required?
The average time away from work is one week, but patients with physically demanding jobs, multiple procedures, other health conditions, or complications may require additional time away from work. You should wait until your plastic surgeon releases you to return to work to protect your health and maintain your results.
