Body contouring is a popular, effective way to give you the trim, svelte figure you've always dreamed of. By removing excess skin and tightening the underlying muscles, problem areas such as the abdomen and thighs can be made to look slimmer and more youthful. Below are some of the most common body contouring procedures offered at Dr. Davis' Austin plastic surgery practice. For customized body contouring procedures, patients from Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, and surrounding areas visit Dr. Davis and his caring team.
When diet and exercise aren't enough to give you a flat stomach, a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) can help. During a tummy tuck procedure, the doctor makes an incision from hip to hip. The abdominal muscles are tightened, the navel is repositioned, and the remaining skin is trimmed and folded down. The incision is then closed, and the healing process can begin. Patients typically experience bruising and swelling for about two weeks after this body contouring procedure. The result is a tight, flat midsection that you can be proud of.

A mini tummy tuck is a less invasive form of the tummy tuck procedure. It is virtually scarless and doesn't require a large incision. This surgery is typically performed with a local anesthetic and mild sedation, and it may be performed in conjunction with liposuction, if necessary.

Every woman's body is different, and mommy makeover plastic surgery procedures are tailored to fit the individual needs of the patient having the procedure. If you are suffering from pockets of fat that just won't go away with diet or exercise or weakened stomach muscles and excess skin around the abdomen, a mommy makeover might be your best option.

Liposuction can help you get rid of stubborn fat deposits that cannot be eradicated by diet and exercise. This body contouring procedure can be performed on many areas of the body, but is especially popular in the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. Dr. Davis will make a small incision in the area to be treated, then insert a metal tube called a cannula to break up and suction out excess fat. Recovery takes about two weeks, although it may take a bit longer for optimum results to appear.

Dr. Davis also offers other body contouring and lifting procedures to remove loose, hanging skin from specific areas of the body, such as the arms, thighs, or butt. He can also combine multiple body contouring procedures as part of a more comprehensive body lift. You can choose from a lower, mid, or total body lift, depending on the results you desire. These procedures are excellent for patients who have sagging skin due to aging or excessive weight loss.

Bariatric surgery often leads to massive weight loss - which, in turn, leads to loose skin. To combat this unwanted side effect, many patients choose post-bariatric plastic surgery to restore their skin to a tighter, firmer appearance. This process typically involves several body contouring procedures, such as abdominoplasty and body lift.

Dr. Davis and his staff are proud to offer SmartLipo, which is a laser liposuction procedure that reduces fat without forcing you to go under the knife completely. SmartLipo is seen as both an alternative and a compliment to a traditional liposuction procedure.
