COMBINE LIPO360 AND BBL FOR A SLIM, DEFINED WAIST IN WESTFIELD, NJ
Is it your goal to get a slim, sculpted waist, a round butt, or both? Body contouring from NJ’s Burnett Plastic Surgery could be what you’re looking for! This is a combination of surgical procedures involving the removal of excess skin and fat, as well as using fat to reshape or contour certain areas.
Body contouring is beneficial for patients who want a slimmer figure or desire a certain shape. The body contouring procedure that Burnett Plastic Surgery is most well known for is the combined Brazilian butt lift with liposuction of the midsection and fat transfer to transform the entire body’s silhouette.
BODY CONTOURING BASICS
Aging, pregnancy, and significant weight loss can result in stretched and sagging skin. Even after putting in effort to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle, there may be some areas of stubborn fat that you would like to tone up more or skin that hangs loose and creates a deflated look.
Due to genetics, lifestyle, and your natural body shape, there may be areas that are lacking in volume while at the same time there may be other parts where you have difficulty reducing excess fat. For example, a sedentary lifestyle or aging can cause the buttocks to lose their shape and become flatter. Other patients may naturally have an apple-shaped body, where they carry resistant fat on the belly area. These problems can be addressed with body contouring surgery.
Most surgical body contouring procedures are “lifts” and “tucks” that include removal of excess skin and fat, along with the tightening of tissues, to sculpt a younger, sleeker appearance. Two common examples include tummy tuck surgery for addressing the abdominal area and Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery to address the buttocks.
Liposuction, which is the surgical removal of excess soft fat deposits from directly beneath the skin, is another commonly used technique. This wobbly fat that sits close to the surface is called subcutaneous fat. Liposuction surgeries typically target the arms, back, belly, flanks, buttocks, neck and chin, and thighs.
HOW CAN BODY CONTOURING GIVE YOU A SNATCHED WAIST?
Many women desire a more hourglass-shaped body with fuller curves. The hourglass shape consists of a narrow waist with a wider bust and hips that have roughly similar measurements. Lipo360 refers to the use of liposuction all over the torso on the front, back, and sides for a full, 360-degree “circle.” This is a more comprehensive approach than traditional liposuction, which may only focus on a single feature.
To create a “snatched” slim waistline that many patients desire, Dr. Carlos Burnett combines BBL with Lipo360. Excess, unwanted fat is removed from all around the midsection—rather than just the lower and upper part of the abdomen—and added to the buttocks through fat transfer to provide more volume and projection.
This customized procedure creates the impression of a beautifully sculpted waistline and shapely, defined butt. Rather than simply creating the largest buttocks possible, Dr. Burnett aims to sculpt a shape that is most proportionate for the body frame and anatomy of each individual patient. The combined BBL, liposuction, and fat transfer procedure not only enhances contours, but also helps clothes to fit better.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR BODY CONTOURING?
Ideal candidates for body contouring include patients who have made an effort through exercise and diet to maintain a healthy weight and body fat percentage. Body contouring procedures are not intended for weight loss.
However, these procedures are ideal if you have exercise-resistant fat on specific localized areas—even after weight loss.
Patients should be aware that body contouring is not the same thing as bariatric surgery. It’s recommended that you reach a stable and sustainable weight before having body contouring treatments. BBL patients must have enough excess fat available to be transferred, and liposuction works best on patients who have good skin elasticity.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM YOUR BODY CONTOURING SURGERY?
Before any final decisions are made, patients will have a consultation with Dr. Burnett so that he can discuss their goals, medical history, and any medications they are currently taking. Although body contouring surgeries provide lasting results, keep in mind that your appearance will be affected by aging and any future changes in weight. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-surgery is key to preserving the results.
MORE THAN BODY CONTOURING SURGERY
There are several other body surgery procedures that complement the results from body contouring and help patients achieve a more balanced and proportional shape. These include a full selection of breast surgeries: breast augmentation for obtaining rounder and fuller breasts, breast lift to restore sagging breast to a perkier and more youthful shape, and breast reduction surgery to reduce the size of very large breasts that are causing discomfort or preventing clothes from fitting comfortably.
