Advancements in medical research, especially in plastic surgery and other non-invasive approaches have made it possible to get a desired body shape and image, especially for people who wish to get their preferred shape and live with confidence.
Dr. Vinod Vij, a renowned plastic surgeon in Mumbai, states, ‘Body contouring treatments have emerged as reliable and highly effective solutions to address sagging contours, lax skin, and cellulite and fat deposits. They help transform the body shape and improve the appearance per the patient’s expectations. As a treating plastic surgeon, I perform surgical and non-surgical procedures for body transformation depending on patients’ expectations.
Body contouring can be performed on select body areas, such as the waistline, abdomen, buttocks, thighs etc, for reshaping and redefining the body shape. It is advisable to seek an expert, board-certified plastic surgeon to perform the body contouring procedure.
Patients should approach a plastic surgeon to discuss their condition and the type of body transformation or shape they expect. The plastic surgeon will highlight the desired outcomes and recommend the procedures for attaining the same.
He performs all body contouring procedures such as thigh lifts, a surgical procedure to tighten the underlying tissues and skin due to aging and weight reduction. The breast lift procedure helps to lift and reshape sagging breasts. The plastic surgeon removes extra skin, tightening the tissues and repositioning the nipple and areola. This procedure is also known as mastopexy.
According to India’s leading plastic surgeons, the surgical technique involves the removal of excess skin, along with the tightening of tissues and the repositioning of the nipple and areola. This procedure is commonly referred to as mastopexy.
Brachioplasty or arm lift removes the excess fat and loose skin from the upper arms and gives them a definite shape. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is a procedure in which the surgeon tightens the abdominal muscles by removing extra fat and skin in the abdominal area. Dr. Vinod Vij recommends a tummy tuck procedure for people with projecting stomachs, loose skin, or stretch marks in the abdomen.
The mummy makeover procedure involves a series of techniques, such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, Liposuction and so on, to overcome the bodily changes due to pregnancy and childbirth. The decision to go ahead with a tummy tuck is recommended only after the women have completed their pregnancy phase.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which the doctor uses suction to remove the fat deposition from the neck, thighs, hips and arms. The surgeon makes small incisions to extract the fat, giving the body a defined look and feel.
Fat transfer is another surgical procedure that involves removing fat from one part of the body and injecting it elsewhere to enhance its appearance; for instance, fat from the thigh or the stomach area is used to uplift the breasts, buttocks or breasts.
Dr. Vinod Vij also does non-invasive body contouring, also known as minimally invasive procedures, as they do not require anesthesia or incisions, and the patient can recover in a significantly shorter period. Plastic surgeons recommend these procedures as per their suitability with the patient and the scope for better outcomes.
Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting) is a procedure in which the fat cells are frozen and destroyed through controlled chilling. This process removes fat from the abdomen, thighs, double chin and excess fat above the hips and abdomen area. In Laser Lipolysis, laser-assisted Liposuction, or laser fat reduction procedure, the surgeon uses laser energy to liquefy the fat cells. Heat is passed through the laser to dissolve and eliminate the fat cells.
As the name suggests, Radiofrequency (RF) Treatments use radiofrequency to heat and tighten the skin of the abdomen, thighs, arms and face while contouring them simultaneously. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) dissolves fat cells using ultrasound energy that heats, reduces, and tightens the targeted area.
Dr. Vinod Vij also treats abdominal fat using Kybella, a type of injectable fat dissolver. Kybella is an artificial version of deoxycholic acid administered into select areas such as the chin to reduce accumulated therein.
Dr. Vinod Vij shares a patient story of a 35 YO female wishing to remove stubborn fat to contour her body. Dr. Vinod Vij recommended Liposuction, which she proceeded with. She was pleased with the results and her improved body shape. She regained her confidence and self-esteem. Dr. Vinod Vij states,’ Liposuction is a safe surgical procedure which optimal results, fast recovery. Hence, I recommend patients who wish for a well-toned body fit to undergo a surgical procedure.
He asserts that a body contouring procedure does help to boost the self-esteem and confidence of the patient as it a safe and effective solution provided it is performed by an expert plastic surgeon. The patient too, should clearly discuss the reason for proceeding with a body contour procedure along with their expectations and having a clear picture of the likely outcome.
