Body Sculpting for Trinity, FL, Patients, Can Add Contour Following Weight Loss
Body sculpting may be a way for Trinity, FL, patients to contour their bodies following substantial weight loss and achieve a shapelier, better-proportioned appearance. Dr. John Roach, an experienced cosmetic surgeon and founder of the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, can help such patients by repositioning and tightening excess skin that has failed to conform to the body’s newly slim silhouette.
The skin can stretch over time with weight gain and age, but it doesn’t always contract when the underlying body mass decreases. Body sculpting is a surgical means involving one or more procedures, such as a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast and body lifts, designed to eliminate excess skin and stubborn fatty deposits that linger on the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, arms, or back despite a patient’s sincere efforts to practice good nutrition and maintain a regular exercise routine.
Weight loss is a major step in reclaiming your health. Unfortunately, the hanging skin that sometimes results can not only contribute to ongoing body image issues, but can also restrict exercise and other movement, create hygiene issues, and make fitting into clothing difficult. Body sculpting may be helpful to such patients whose weight has stabilized. If you are interested in exploring this option, schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Roach, who will assess your skin elasticity and other factors to determine whether you are a good candidate for body sculpting.
The cost of body sculpting can vary greatly, especially since some patients may require more than one procedure to achieve their desired outcome. During your consultation, Dr. Roach will provide detailed information on the costs associated with your individual treatment plan. As a benchmark for general planning purposes, he advises that most patients can expect to pay approximately $7,500 for a tummy tuck, $5,000 for an arm lift, and $2,500 for liposuction, should those procedures be required. These amounts may include the costs of prescriptions for medication, medical tests, surgical center fees, anesthesia, the surgeon’s fee, and post-surgical compression garments.
Most insurance companies consider cosmetic surgery such as body sculpting to be medically unnecessary, and thus will not pay for it. Financing options may be available, however, and the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery welcomes patients who wish to pay for their body sculpting surgery through an outside financing company, such as CareCredit, MedicalFinancing.com, or SurgeryLoans.com.
