Three Forms of Body Contouring Surgery for Women
There has been a rise in stories surrounding body contouring surgery, in particular, the mummy makeover. Body rejuvenation surgery is not a new concept. There have been variations of many popular procedures for decades. However, improved techniques and outcomes have fuelled demand for these types of procedure.
Body rejuvenation itself is a broad term used to describe a wide selection of surgical procedures. The primary aim is to help women feel more confident in their bodies after pregnancy and/or substantial weight loss. These procedures can include but are not limited to, tummy tuck, breast rejuvenation, and fat transfer. Below, you’ll find further information about each procedure.
Tummy tuck surgery
As one of the most popular types of body contouring surgery available in the UK, an abdominoplasty can take various forms. The main objective is to improve the appearance of the midsection, specifically the belly region. There are several popular forms of tummy tuck surgery sought by women, most notably the mini, full or traditional, and fleur de lis tummy tuck. Each is designed to remove fat and tighten loose skin but offer patients different results. It can be completed as a stand-alone form of body contouring surgery, or as part of a wider treatment plan.
Breast rejuvenation surgery
Women often seek surgery to improve the shape or size of the breasts, but for many, it’s the position of the breasts that is the concern. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and weight loss can have an impact on confidence. Breast rejuvenation surgery is often offered to improve lost volume and restore the position of the breasts. In cases where it is appropriate, patients can also choose to undergo a fat transfer procedure alongside a breast uplift, which restores volume at the same time.
Fat transfer surgery
One form of body contouring we expect to see continue to gather popularity is fat transfer surgery. It’s a versatile procedure that allows the patient to move fat from one part of the body to another. This can be a part of breast rejuvenation, where fat can be placed in the upper breast to replace volume lost as a result of breastfeeding, pregnancy or ageing.
Choosing body rejuvenation surgery
In some cases, all three of the body contouring surgery procedures above may be combined to form the most suitable treatment plan. Fat transfer, breast rejuvenation and tummy tucks are all invasive procedures and require careful consideration before committing. Before deciding to go down the surgical route, it’s important to consider all of the non-surgical options. Trusting your consultation and subsequent care with an expert is the best way to discover whether this form of body rejuvenation surgery is suitable for your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
