Body Contouring FAQs

Procedures I Can Combine?

Procedures are grouped and timed in stages according to each patient’s personalized surgical plan. Our doctor considers overall health, body areas to be treated, and each patients aesthetic goals to provide a surgical plan customized to each patient. Common procedures to be combined are grouped with either the upper body areas or lower body areas. 

The Ideal Timing?

The ideal timing for body contouring is after significant weight loss, or after patients have come close to achieving their ideal body weight. Dr. Williams recommends women to be done having children because pregnancy can significantly alter the results.

Mommy Makeover?

A mommy makeover refers to a combination of body contouring procedures that are applied to areas of the body most affected by pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing. This typically includes the breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks.

Will There be Scars?

Like all surgeries, body contouring will result in some scarring. Most surgeries result in scars that are hidden as the incisions are located in areas of the body not commonly visible. A skilled body contouring plastic surgeon like Dr. Williams will consider scarring carefully in the overall surgical plan and place the incisions in the proper, hidden locations. Post-surgical care and topical solutions may also be provided to to achieve a quicker, healthier healing process. Scars fade and blend with natural skin tone as time passes.
