Body sculpting or body contouring removes excess fat and or skin from problem areas. Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD, and board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, is a state-of-the-art practice that provides body sculpting for residents of Melbourne, Indialantic, Viera, Brevard County, and surrounding Central Florida communities.
Sometimes, even when we eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly, stubborn fatty deposits remain accumulated in difficult problem areas, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, and back, causing unwanted bulges. Body sculpting procedures tighten and tone the body, creating more definition and eliminating stubborn bulges from problem areas. The result is a trim and toned appearance.
Body sculpting procedures are safe and effective for most adults, however body sculpting does not achieve weight loss. Ideal candidates for body sculpting are those who are in good health and successfully maintain a stable and healthy weight through diet and exercise but have had difficulty eliminating stubborn bulges from troublesome areas. Each body sculpting procedure is uniquely tailored and personalized for each patient, targeting specific areas in the body.
Dermatology + Plastic Surgery offers the following body sculpting procedures. These procedures may also be combined to achieve unique results for each patient.
Ultraslim® is a no-touch treatment using a special patented light to stimulate fat cells.
Liposuction extracts fat from problem areas using a safe and gentle vacuum suction process. Tiny incisions are used to suction out the fat through a very fine tube called a cannula. Liposuction is minimally invasive and provides dramatic results with little recovery time.
The tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and eliminates the excess sagging skin that remains, sculpting a flat and toned abdomen and defining the waistline.
A mini tummy tuck surgically tightens the muscles in the abdominal area below the belly button and removes any excess skin that remains in the region, eliminating bulges in the lower abdomen and hips.
The mommy makeover is a specialized combination of procedures to tighten and re-sculpt the body following pregnancy. The procedures may include any combination of breast enhancement, tummy tuck, body lift, or other surgical and non-surgical treatments.
Following bariatric surgery, post-surgical body contouring is used to remove the excess skin that remains after dramatic weight loss.
Brachioplasty, commonly known as an “arm lift,” is a surgical procedure that eliminates fatty deposits and sagging skin from the upper arm to create more definition and muscle tone resulting in a tighter and more youthful appearance.
The body lift tightens the entire torso, upper thighs, and buttocks in patients who have undergone dramatic weight loss or who have sagging skin that has accumulated due to the aging process. This procedure creates a more defined and streamlined body contour. The body lift may be combined with other procedures, such as liposuction or breast enhancement to yield optimal results.
A thigh lift surgically removes fatty bulges and excess skin from the thighs to produce a more toned, contoured, and smooth appearance.
