Individuals who have undergone a major weight loss are often faced with an excess of skin and tissues that results in the unsightly look of saggy skin. Although these individuals often adopt a healthy and reasonable diet and a solid exercise regimen, these efforts are often insufficient to tighten the skin leaving surgery as the only viable option.
Also known as body sculpting, body contouring is a cosmetic surgery that draws on a number of various techniques in order to provide you with firmer, tighter skin all over your body in areas where it is needed most.
Fat transfer has become one of the most popular forms of body contouring in Beverly Hills because it can be performed faster than other surgeries, requires less recovery time, and can give you impressive results. Fat transfer allows you the luxury of choosing the location from which fat will be removed and where to apply it.
There are other options available to you such as a traditional tuck and liposuction technique that remain the preferred choice by many of our patients. Tucks are one of the oldest forms of cosmetic surgery and can be performed on a number of body parts, including:
Tucks remove excess skin and tissue while paying close attention to keeping scarring and any signs of surgery to a minimum. For patients with excess fat in problem areas, liposuction is one of the fastest and best long-term solutions to address fatty tissue. Tucks and liposuction are often performed together to produce fabulous results. Excess skin can often lead to irregular fatty deposits. Liposuction with a tuck often provides the only means necessary to correct this type of condition.
You will find there are many benefits to having a body contouring procedure, including that it will
Change your facial and body profile
Eliminate excess skin and tissues
Feel more comfortable in your own skin
Improve your confidence and self-esteem
Higher quality of life
Look good and feel good!

ATLANTIS is the next wave in fat transfer technology, delivering impressive results that rival even traditional liposuction and anatomical implants. With our innovative procedure, individuals can remove excess body fat to reveal the muscle definition that is hidden beneath. Instead of discarding the fatty tissue, the fat that is extracted can be used to add feminine volume to your breast or buttocks, enhancing your best assets.
ATLAS enhances all the hard work you have put in at the gym by removing unwanted fat while at the same time drawing attention to newly revealed sculpted muscles. Many patients choose this unique body contouring procedure to define the arms, chest, back, and abdomen so they appear sculpted and beautifully toned.
Fat Grafting is a process that involves removing fat from a donor site on your own body to use as a filler in an area where you desire volume and shape.
Using liposuction or gentler syringe liposuction, fat is removed from a donor site. The mixture is treated by separating the fluid from the fat and then setting it in a centrifuge to separate the living fat cells and the ones that perish during the suction. The non-live cells are removed manually leaving a pure concentration of live fat cells that the body is more likely to accept and retain. Finally, this pure fat is applied via micro-injection to sites on your body where you wish to fill or add volume.

Are you looking to get rid of excess fat? Have you lost a lot of weight but now have loose skin? Do you want to get rid of those love handles? For these and other fat removal reasons, you are a good candidate for body contouring. You should be in good physical health, be at an ideal weight, and have enough skin elasticity.
It depends on which procedure you decide you need to transform your body but you should see visible results immediately after your procedure. It can take many months to fully heal and see the final results, which will be long-lasting as long as you maintain good health such as regular exercise, a healthy diet, and a stable weight.
Your recovery will depend on your type of procedure, especially if you undergo more than one surgery. A safe estimate is to plan on taking one to two weeks off from work. It is important that you get plenty of rest and limit your physical activities to allow your body to heal. Some light activities are OK and can help prevent blood clots.
You will likely feel some tenderness and numbness immediately after your procedure. Pain medication for your discomfort and antibiotics for infection can be prescribed. You may also receive a dressing or support garment to help with your recovery. Swelling can take several weeks to disappear but will eventually fade away. You may use an ice pack to decrease swelling. It is best to wait at least a month before performing any strenuous exercise. Also, avoid bending and lifting for a few days after your procedure. Dr. Ordon and Dr. Chopra will provide you with details on the best ways to recover from your body contouring surgery.
No matter what brought you here, a visit with our doctors will bring out the best in you. Call us today to schedule your initial consultation, either in person or online.
