Have you been working on getting your body bikini-ready? Here are some questions to ask yourself when considering whether you might be a great candidate for CoolSculpting, SmartLipo, tummy tuck or traditional liposuction to jumpstart your exercise and diet regimen.

Is your “ideal weight” achievable? It may be very difficult to lose those last few pounds. Some patients are stuck at a plateau in their weight loss efforts and become discouraged. Their accomplishments are camouflaged by loose skin, and they need help getting over a hump in their weight loss efforts. Body contouring can be a great way to help motivate you to achieve your goals.

Will having the surgery sooner make you look and feel better and more comfortable in your skin? With a new, trimmer silhouette, you might look forward to working out more, since you would now see your accomplishment more clearly, look better in your workout clothes and feel more “free” or lighter while working out. Having body contouring surgery sooner in order to jumpstart results might be a great idea.

Is your current diet and exercise regimen providing enough nutrition to help you heal post-surgery? This can make a difference in your outcome. You need all the building blocks of healing to stack the deck in your favor to have an uneventful surgery. During your consult, talk to Dr. Widenhouse about how to get ready for surgery. At Port City Plastic Surgery, we can also recommend natural, homeopathic and herbal nutritional supplements for surgical preparation and recovery.

Which body contouring procedure will Dr. Widenhouse advise for you?

  • CoolSculpting is great if you just need to lose a few pounds (belly fat, love handles, muffin top).
  • SmartLipo helps tighten and tone skin, and for some people, it can even minimize the appearance of cellulite. SmartLipo is great for helping tone small amounts of loose skin after weight loss.
  • Haven’t yet reached your ideal weight? Traditional liposuction can help.
  • A tummy tuck is usually the best option following dramatic weight loss, when there is a lot of loose skin.

Take some time for yourself and schedule your evaluation today! We are confident you will be thrilled with your body contouring surgery results if you work in collaboration with Dr. Widenhouse to choose the body contouring procedure that is best for you. Get ready to truly become yourself this summer!
