With the superior results provided by Plastic Surgery Orange County residents have enhanced their lifestyles and increased their confidence by improving physical features that once made them self-conscious and uncomfortable. Everyone may have an area or a feature of the body they dislike and wish to change. For some, this area may have been the cause of embarrassment or ridicule resulting in low self-esteem and the desire to enhance this feature. For many individuals, having excess fat in the body is a common reason for lacking confidence or receiving unwanted attention. It may also be the cause for embarrassment in some cases. By visiting a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon these patients can receive a body contouring treatment to reduce the amount of excess fat in the body.
Body contouring may entail a series of different techniques to be implemented during a procedure to achieve the best results. With Liposuction Orange County residents have excess fat removed from problem area(s) in the body to receive an overall figure that is proportionate in size and shape. Plastic Surgeons recommend this procedure for patients who have stubborn fat or “problem” areas in the body that have not responded to diet or exercise regimens, also post-pregnancy patients or patients who have already lost a significant amount of weight. During a Liposuction procedure, a cannula (a hollow, thin tube) is used to suction excess fat from the area to be treated.Liposuction may be used to treat multiple areas of the body such as the arms, flanks, midsection, thighs, and more.
The abdomen or midsection is one of the more commonly treated areas in both men and women when it comes to body contouring. The muscles in the midsection can be the hardest to work out and may take a longer time to gain results from. For many, the reason why the midsection protrudes or makes the body seem disproportionate is because the abdominal muscles have weakened. For many women who have undergone pregnancy, the abdominal muscles have stretched during pregnancy, causing the stomach area to lose its contour. With a Tummy Tuck Orange County patients may treat the stomach area with liposuction to remove excess fat from the area and tighten underlying muscles for results of a tightened, flattened, and contoured midsection. For many individuals, this boosts their self-confidence as an area that once caused them self-consciousness then becomes an area they can be proud and confident about.
