If you want to reshape your body or tighten areas of your skin, body sculpting in South Bend might be right for you. Body sculpting, also known as body contouring, refers to several procedures that slim and shape the body to achieve a desired aesthetic outcome. Nearly any part of your body can be tightened or lifted with a sculpting procedure.

Many people notice their bodies changing after weight loss, pregnancy, or with age. Experiencing loose skin and changes in your body shape can be an emotional experience. Unfortunately, diet and exercise are not always effective enough to create your desired changes. At The Centre, P.C., our board-certified surgeons perform a range of plastic surgery procedures designed to get you looking and feeling your best.

How to Know Which Body Sculpting Treatments Are Right for You

With so many treatments available, deciding which procedures are right for your needs can feel overwhelming. The best way to determine what is best for you is to learn about the various treatments and consider your goals. During your initial consultation, an experienced plastic surgeon can walk you through each treatment as it relates to your unique situation. Our South Bend office offers various body sculpting procedures that can help you feel confident in your physique.

Arm Lifts Explained

The upper arms are a troublesome spot for fat loss in many individuals, and it is common to feel self-conscious about loose skin in this area. While strength training can improve the musculature of your arm, exercise does not affect the loss of skin elasticity. Arm lifts, or brachioplasty, target the area between your elbow and armpit. This body contouring procedure eliminates excess skin, creating new contours and a more toned look for South Bend patients.

Body Contouring with Liposuction and Tummy Tucks

Liposuction removes unwanted fat from multiple parts of the body, making it a popular treatment for targeting stubborn areas. This procedure can use general anesthesia or local anesthesia for small areas. Our team will use one of several techniques to remove excess fat using a metal tube that goes under your skin. Afterward, you will experience some swelling and bruising and will need to wear compression garments for a few weeks. Everyone’s liposuction procedure is different, making it a good idea to have a consultation to better understand what you should expect.

Also known as abdominoplasty, tummy tucks are one of the body contouring procedures we offer at our South Bend office. If you have excess skin and fat around your belly button, a tummy tuck might be the right procedure for you. During the surgery, our surgeons tighten the muscle and remove loose skin along with excess tissue. This treatment can also remove some stretch marks in your lower abdominal area. After the procedure, you will wear a compression garment for around six weeks.
