Introduction to body contouring

For many people, one of the most constant and challenging daily tasks is achieving and maintaining a healthy physique. We all would like to feel and look the best that we can be. Body contouring can help us achieve these goals. Body contouring refers to many different types of plastic surgery procedures which are designed to address specific trouble spots. The most common of these procedures are the tummy tuck (or abdominoplasty) and liposuction. In general, body contouring is not designed as a weight loss technique, but as an adjunct to correct target areas that are not responsive to a balanced diet and exercise. Happily, however, the effect of body contouring is that one will look and feel slimmer, and notice an improvement in the way that clothing fits. Individual body contouring procedures can be performed in isolation or in conjunction with one another to optimize results. During your consultation, Dr. Chang will help you to determine which of the procedures will best help you to achieve your personal goals.
