Body Contouring - San Francisco
Patients who desire lower body recontouring in San Francisco usually are seeking to reduce the size of their buttocks or lower trunk area.
This plastic surgery procedure is best for individuals who are unable to reduce their size through exercise and dieting. Such factors may affect an individual's confidence, leading them to seek lower body recontouring in San Francisco.
A lower body recontouring can help such individuals restore a thinner and fitter looking contour to their bodies. The buttocks are made smaller to better match the body of the patient. San Francisco plastic surgeon / cosmetic surgeon Dr. Roy Kim accomplishes this by removing excess fat and skin in the lower body and buttock areas and tightening the underlying muscle tissues. This not only helps to restore the physical appearance of the patient, but also restores self-confidence and respect to the patient. Please contact plastic surgeon Dr. Kim to learn more about getting a lower body recontouring in San Francisco.
A lower body recontouring is a very individualized procedure in which your goals should be realistically determined and discussed with San Francisco surgeon Dr. Kim. Together you will determine what specific procedures will be performed. A lower body recontouring is often performed in conjunction with other procedures such as liposuction so that the hips can be shaped to match the smaller area. Once your goals have been determined you will set a date for this procedure in San Francisco and will be given instructions about how to prepare.
When the date for your lower body recontouring in San Francisco has arrived, you should plan on the surgery taking several hours or more depending on which procedures you are having performed. Two procedures are available, the full lower body recontouring or the partial lower body recontouring for patients who only need to reduce the lower body. Dr. Kim will create a small incision that is placed to be as inconspicuous as possible and then will remove excess fat and skin. The muscles will then be tightened and set into place.
The lower body recontouring will remove fat and excess skin from the buttocks, thighs, lower back, and hips. Because the procedure affects many different areas, it is typically a lengthy procedure taking several hours and other procedures performed in conjunction with the lower body recontouring should generally be scheduled on a separate day.
The lower body area may experience some pain and swelling during the first few days following the procedure. San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Kim will likely advise you on other precautions to take following the surgery. Several weeks recovery time is usual and exercise will often help speed the recovery process after the initial recovery period.
