Body Contouring in Lexington, KY
Body contouring encompasses a number of different body sculpting techniques used by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William L. Dowden at Dowden Plastic Surgery to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body sculpting surgery, patients in Lexington, Georgetown, and the surrounding areas of Kentucky can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
What is Body Contouring?
Body contouring is loosely defined as plastic surgery on any area of the body other than the face or neck. This includes breast augmentation and reduction, thigh lifts, arm lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks and gynecomastia. The meaning of these procedures is to bring your body into better balance and shape and get you closer to your ideal self.
We offer body contouring to all customers, including those under the age of 18 with a parent’s consent. We guarantee to advise you on the best course of action by showing you the computer imaging results of a possible procedure. This means that you will see what you’re getting before you go under the knife.
In the past, body contouring was dominated by the breast augmentation specialists, but that is no longer the case. Our body contouring is gender neutral, as we do as many surgeries on men as well as women. We’ve worked with teens that needed body sculpting to even out breasts or remove stubborn fatty deposits beneath the arms or thighs. With our country finally getting on the heath kick, we are seeing many new clients looking to tighten up the undesirable effects of natural weight loss.
Weekly, Dr. Dowden performs liposuctions as part of our body contouring. He performs tummy tucks and thigh lifts as part of a comprehensive body sculpting plan. This plan sometimes includes skin reduction or tightening to improve the skin above the newly sculpted tissue.
At one time, body contouring surgeries were highly problematic due to extended periods of anesthesia and significant blood loss. We perform almost all of our procedures as preplanned sequences to prevent major scarring, adverse reaction to a general anesthetic and potentially dangerous blood loss. Safety is our number-one concern when we do a procedure and the shorter we can keep them, the less chance for a complication.
