How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

Published by Aubrey Sohaney

It makes sense that you might be wondering how long body contouring lasts. Body contouring is about more than just enhancing your appearance – it’s also about boosting your confidence and improving your quality of life. Read on to learn more about body contouring, how long results typically last, and how to make sure your results last for as long as possible. 

What is Body Contouring?

Body contouring is a broad term that encompasses various surgical procedures designed to reshape and refine the body by removing excess skin and fat. These procedures are particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant weight changes which have led to loose skin and stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Common body contouring procedures include:

  • Body Lifts
  • Inner and Outer Thigh Lifts

Performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, these treatments are tailored to meet the specific needs of each patient.

The Longevity of Body Contouring Results

The longevity of body contouring depends on several factors, including:

Skin Elasticity 

Skin elasticity is a key factor in predicting how long the results of body contouring will last. Luckily, quality skincare products and a healthy diet can improve your skin elasticity, thus improving your odds of experiencing long lasting body contouring results. 

Weight Fluctuations

Maintaining a stable weight is crucial for maximizing your results, as significant weight gain or loss after surgery can alter your appearance. 

Lifestyle Choices 

Adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise will support your initial recovery and extend the results of body contouring. 

Routine Follow-Up Appointments

Depending on the specific techniques used, periodic check-ups with your surgeon may be necessary to maintain or enhance the contouring effects.

Post-Procedure Care 

Adhering to all post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon will ensure a smooth recovery and help maintain the aesthetic results.

First time here & I will definitely be back! Allison did my Botox. She was honest when I asked her what areas she thought botox would be best for me & explained the whole process. I have received botox at other cosmetic centers & this was by far the best experience!
