Body Contouring in Minneapolis

Instant Confidence in Your Skin

What Is Body Contouring Plastic Surgery?

After a weight loss journey, you want to feel beautiful and confident in your new body. But excess skin or tissue left after dramatic weight loss can cause discomfort that makes it hard to enjoy your success.

Body contouring plastic surgery allows you to remove excess skin and tissue safely and effectively — as well as any underlying fat still clinging stubbornly to your frame.

Body contouring procedures may include multiple areas of the body, including: arms, breast, face, neck, abdomen, buttocks, or thighs. Essentially, anywhere that excess, sagging skin is causing discomfort — physically or emotionally.

Frequently Asked Questions

In most cases, this surgery yields permanent results. However, regaining weight can alter any contouring done prior to weight gain.

Although everyone has a different pain threshold, most patients report only mild discomfort shortly after the procedure.

Most surgeons agree that the closer you are to your Body Mass Index (BMI) ideal weight, the better candidate you are for body contouring surgery. Ideally, your BMI should be 30 or below.
