About Body Contouring in Thousand Oaks

If you have achieved significant weight loss, your body needs time to adjust. As we age, however, our skin loses its ability to keep up with massive changes in size and shape. When we get older, our skin’s elasticity decreases. The body gradually produces less and less collagen, the protein responsible for skin regeneration. Considerable weight loss results in loose, excess skin. If you struggle with these issues, Dr. Azar can help.

The keys to body contouring after massive weight loss are lifting and tightening.[1] You want your exterior to reflect the slim new you. One or more of the following Azar Plastic Surgery procedures can help:

Tummy Tuck

If you are dissatisfied with the laxity of your new belly, a Tummy Tuck, also called an abdominoplasty, may be the perfect solution. Dr. Azar begins by identifying the loose skin you want to be addressed. He makes strategic incisions to contour and shape the abdominal region. If excess belly fat persists from your recent weight loss, Dr. Azar can administer liposuction to eliminate unwanted fat cells. Before suturing the area closed, Dr. Azar will remove your excess skin to reveal a tighter, trimmer waistline.

Thigh Lift

To achieve greater definition on your upper legs after losing significant weight, Dr. Azar can perform a Thigh Lift procedure. The doctor places his incisions strategically along the medial thigh or groin fold to ensure optimal aesthetics. After removing any unsightly skin or excess tissue, Dr. Azar will contour the thighs and tighten their appearance as he goes. 

Butt Augmentation

If any of the body contouring procedures you seek involve liposuction, then your unwanted fat can be used to enhance your buttocks. After fat deposits are sucked out of your thighs, tummy, or hips, they can be repurposed in a Butt Augmentation procedure. Dr. Azar will create a round, full look for your backside using fat harvested from your body or by inserting buttock implants.

Regardless of which procedure you prefer, a more shapely derriere could be yours.

After losing significant weight, your silhouette may not be as perky as you would prefer. Dr. Azar can fulfill your aesthetic needs with a Butt Lift in the convenience of his Thousand Oaks location.

Lower Body Lift

For a comprehensive approach to address your contouring goals, consider a Lower Body Lift. This procedure combines the benefits of a Tummy Tuck and a Thigh Lift while also addressing any other lower body concerns you may have. Dr. Azar is especially qualified to perform a lower body lift, which takes your overall circumference and proportions into account. As an accomplished artist, Dr. Azar appreciates the human form and honors it with every procedure he conducts. 

Breast Lift

When a Breast Lift surgery is complete, the client will enjoy a tighter, firmer bust.

Weight loss can leave a person’s chest saggy and undefined. A mastopexy procedure, or Breast Lift, can restore a higher, tighter bustline and provide symmetry to your breasts. In addition to contouring your chest, Dr. Azar can correct any issues you may have with your nipples or areolas, the dark skin around the nipples.

Facelift

After experiencing massive weight loss, some people develop unwelcome jowls and slack cheeks. Consider a Facelift procedure at Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to perk up your expression. Dr. Azar is a true innovator when it comes to contouring your neck, chin, and jaw lines. Whether you need excess skin removed or redraped, Dr. Azar can accomplish wondrous results for your trim, taut face!

The procedures outlined above are just some of the options available to you. Every client is unique, so their body contouring protocols will be different. If you have lost weight and wish to tighten and tone your look, contact our office to discuss your cosmetic goals.
