Body sculpting encompasses surgical and non-surgical procedures that correct physical flaws to give individuals a more shapely and defined physique. In Boca Raton, FL, Daniel Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, performs body sculpting procedures on those wanting to improve their physical appearance and restore their self-confidence.
What is Body Sculpting?
Men and women may become dissatisfied with their appearance because of the changes that occur with their bodies as they age or simply because sometimes a healthy lifestyle is not enough. Body sculpting consists of medical procedures that decrease fat in specific areas of the body, tighten and smooth skin, and create more definition in areas of the body that seem to withstand the efforts of diet and exercise.
Many people seek body sculpting following significant weight loss, which can cause excess skin to sag or droop. This can be just as damaging to someone’s self-confidence as being overweight. Others work hard to have a defined appearance by eating a healthy diet and maintaining a strict exercise regimen; however, they still have areas of their bodies that are stubborn.
Benefits of Body Sculpting
Body sculpting is chosen by people who want to have a physically fit appearance. It also allows the following benefits:
- Re-contours areas of the body that resist diet and exercise
- Regains and maintains a younger appearance
- Restores self-esteem
- Eliminates unwanted pockets of fat
- Better quality of life
- Improved physical comfort
Is Body Sculpting Right for Me?
Body sculpting is a broad classification for surgical and non-surgical procedures that contour the body to reveal a physically fit, younger appearance. If you have an area of the body in which you are not happy with due to excess skin from a significant weight loss or resistant to diet and exercise, body sculpting may be right for you. Because body sculpting incorporates procedures that are targeted to specific areas of the body, it is important to talk with Dr. Man to determine which procedure is the best option for your issue.
How is the Recovery from Body Sculpting?
The recovery from body sculpting procedures varies with each one depending on what is involved in the procedure itself. Because some are significantly more invasive and considered major surgery, they may require more down time than others for healing. Most results from body sculpting are immediately visible and only get better as you heal.
Additionally, with most body sculpting procedures, no more than a week of complete rest is required before returning to work and mild activity. Complete healing takes up to six weeks before individuals can fully return to activities.
How Much Does Body Sculpting Cost?
The cost of body sculpting varies with each procedure depending on the patient, the extent of the selected procedure, and whether more than one body sculpting procedure is to be performed. During a consultation with Dr. Man, we can discuss cost with you as well as our payment options, which includes financing. We also accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
What Do I Do Next?
The first step towards body sculpting is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Man. At this appointment, he spends time with you discussing what issues you have with your body and what you hope to achieve through body sculpting. He will evaluate your body and make a treatment plan recommendation.
Some of the information you need to provide includes:
- A full medical history
- Any past or present medical conditions
- Medical treatments you have received in the past
- Past surgeries or hospitalizations
- Allergies or sensitivities
- Current medications
- Current mammogram results
- Family history of breast cancer
- Any plans for weight loss
- Any plans for pregnancy
Also, during your consultation, Dr. Man needs to examine, measure, and photograph the targeted area so that he can have a documented comparison to the post-treatment results. Dr. Man wants you to be an active participant in developing your plan of treatment. By ensuring that you are well educated about your options, he can help you choose the best procedure for you.
