Our Body Contouring Procedures
Body contouring procedures are designed to enhance certain areas of the body in order to help you achieve a more toned, youthful appearance. Depending on your individual needs, you may wish to consider one or more of the following procedures:
- Liposuction: One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the country, liposuction eliminates unwanted pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck can remove excess skin and fat from around the midsection and tighten the muscle wall of the abdominal region.
- Butt lift: If you are unhappy with the appearance of your buttocks, Dr. Schiesel can help you look great and feel confident with buttock augmentation.
- Mommy makeover: Dr. Schiesel can help restore your pre-baby body with a comprehensive mommy makeover. More than a single procedure, this combination of multiple procedures can help you look and feel your best.
If you are in good general health and have realistic expectations for your body contouring procedure, your next step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Schiesel to discuss your options.

Is Body Contouring Surgery Right for Me?
Have you recently lost a significant amount of weight, retained excess fat and skin following a pregnancy or are just unhappy with the shape of your body? If so, you may want to consider having one or more body contouring procedures performed.
You must be well-informed about the procedures you are considering and know all of the advantages and disadvantages associated with each. You should be considering the surgical procedure for your own reasons and have a realistic understanding of what to expect once your procedure is completed. It is also important that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and her team.
Dr. Schiesel is a board-certified plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. She prides herself on establishing an ongoing, comfortable and honest relationship with each of her patients. She understands what an important and personal decision you are making when considering cosmetic surgery and she will carefully explain every aspect of your elected procedure, including its advantages and disadvantages in addition to all of your treatment options.
How Long Will My Results From Body Contouring Last?
Because the removal of the fat and excess skin during body contouring treatment will be permanent, results can last up to ten years. However, it’s essential to be realistic about your results and remember that over time, with aging and weight gain, your results and the appearance of your body may change. Because of this, the best way to keep your results long-lasting is to maintain your weight. Implementing a balanced diet and finding an exercise routine that you can stick to in order to maintain a stable weight will help you maintain a stable weight and can prevent changes to your body’s post-treatment appearance.
Are There Any Side Effects From Body Contouring?
Just like other plastic surgeries, body contouring does still come with a few side effects. However, for most patients, these side effects often disappear within a few days to a few weeks after treatment.
The most concerning side effect of body contouring for patients is the scarring left behind after treatment. However, the concern about the appearance of scarring usually never outweighs the positive results of their slimmer silhouette that patients are able to achieve with treatment. If the appearance of your scarring remains a concern, our team is happy to recommend the best treatment options for scar removal.
Other common side effects after treatment will include numbness, changes in skin sensation, infection from poor wound healing, and soreness. However, with the proper aftercare, many of these complications can be avoided if they don’t already heal on their own after your recovery period.
How Long Does Recovery Take After Body Contouring?
The recovery period after body contouring takes most patients around four to six weeks. This recovery may require you to take time off work. However, being home to rest and recover properly will optimize the appearance of your body contouring results.
During your recovery period, it’s recommended to keep your body hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day, being gentle with the treated areas of your body, and prioritizing rest. If no complications from healing arise, most patients can return to their normal routines within four weeks.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Body Contouring?
Body contouring can provide many benefits to patients interested in achieving a more contoured, sharp, slim silhouette after a major weight loss. However, it’s also important for patients to be aware of potential downsides before committing to their treatment.
- Improves body appearance by slimming and contouring
- Helps remove excess skin and fat that have been unresponsive to traditional weight-loss methods
- Treats chronic swelling
- Can help patients achieve their goal weight
- Potential scarring
- Potential risk of wound infection
- May require time off work to recover
With the proper aftercare and by following Dr. Schiesel’s guidelines during recovery, many of these cons can be avoided, and patients are able to enjoy their new bodies for nearly a decade after treatment!
