“Body contouring is all about achieving balance and harmony in the body profile. In some cases, this may mean a single procedure, while other patients may get better results from a combination of procedures. For example, combining liposuction with abdominoplasty may enhance the patient’s waistline better than abdominoplasty alone. My goal is produce the best outcome possible, based on the patient’s specific cosmetic goals and current profile.” – Dr. Norman Rappaport
Body contouring is cosmetic plastic surgery to trim and reshape stubborn problem areas around the body. These procedures are designed to eliminate persistent deposits of fat while removing excess tissue and skin that can interfere with your body profile. Body contouring is not a weight loss solution and Dr. Rappaport advises patients to achieve a healthy weight prior to undergoing these procedures. However, surgery can give you the appearance of losing weight, improve the way your clothes fit and increase your self-confidence.
How can Body Contouring Improve Your Appearance?
Dr. Rappaport offers these body contouring procedures:
- Liposuction — streamlines your body contour by suctioning away excess fat from nearly any area of the body
- Tummy Tuck — removes loose, excess skin from the belly and tightens your abdominal muscles for a leaner, more toned midsection
Dr. Rappaport has been performing these body contouring procedures for decades, providing balance, proportion and lean sculpting to the entire body profile. He strives to produce natural results that complement the natural curves of your body, without making you look like you just had surgery. Some procedures can even be performed on an outpatient basis, using local or general anesthesia, and only require a few days of downtime before you can return to regular activities.
