Most body contouring surgeries are performed under general anesthesia. The procedures may take between three to five hours to complete depending on the location and extent of the area that is treated.
Loose skin cannot be removed without leaving scars, and body contouring often means long incisions that result in long scars. Your surgeon will do their best to minimize the appearance of the scars and conceal them in such a way that they are not visible.
During your consultation, the plastic surgeon will discuss with you the type of scars you will get. The scars will fade over time, but they are permanent and their width, height, and final color are unpredictable.
You can resume your normal activities within a couple of weeks. Many people return to work the third week after surgery however the length of the recovery may be different from one individual to the other. It may take 6-12 months for the results of your body contouring to be fully realized.
Though infrequent, complications may include
• Temporary numbness of the skin
• Accumulation of fluid under the skin (Seroma)
• Accumulation of blood under the skin (Hematoma)
Hematoma and Seroma may require intervention to drain the blood or serum that is accumulated under the skin. There may be complications with the healing of the wound after surgery which may be exacerbated for smokers.
