Body Sculpting in Beverly Hills
Body changes that often catch people off guard are the ones that result from a loss of elasticity in the skin, and changing fat distribution and stubbornness as we age. These changes affect the overall body contours and figure. A nutritious diet and regular exercise can go a long way to maintain one’s weight and muscle definition, yet these steps do not prevent the skin from losing elasticity, or from changing fat distribution. Consider body sculpting in Beverly Hills, as offering both surgical and non-surgical options for addressing skin and fat in a way that enhances your contours.
The procedures can involve removing substantial amounts of extra fat, tightening the skin, and transferring fat to different areas for further enhancements. Any type of procedure has limitations and/or risks, which is why it is highly advised to schedule a consultation to see if you are a good candidate and how to best achieve your desired results. Talking in-depth about body sculpting procedures and your cosmetic goals can allow Anita Patel to determine the best treatments for them.
Non-Surgical Body Sculpting Treatments
Patients who want to avoid surgery, extended recovery periods, and scars from incisions, may want to consider non-surgical body sculpting treatments in Beverly Hills. These procedures utilize different products or energies to tighten the skin and result in fat loss. Examples are radiofrequency energy, which can address both fat and skin issues, and injections of fat dissolving substance like Kybella. While avoiding surgery is an excellent advantage of these treatments, they also typically cannot offer the same degree or duration of results as surgery.
Surgical Body Sculpting Options in Beverly Hills
Surgical procedures may be preferable for body sculpting patients in Beverly Hills who struggle with more prominent amounts of excess fat and loose skin. There is a long list of available surgical options when it comes to body sculpting, and tummy tucks, liposuction, body lifts, and breast surgeries are just a few of the many options.
Tummy Tuck and Liposuction
Two of the most popular body sculpting procedures include liposuction and tummy tuck surgery. Liposuction removes excess fat from targeted body areas, and is commonly used to address the abdomen or waist, love handles, thighs, and arms. Notably, the procedure does not tighten the skin, so patients with loose skin may require skin tightening treatments for optimal results.
Since the abdomen and waist are problem areas for many, often the best way to address the area in a full way is tummy tuck surgery combined with liposuction. This way the tummy tuck tightens the underlying muscles and overlying skin, and the liposuction takes care of reducing fat along the love handles and back, together reshaping the entire waistline. The tummy tuck procedure is excellent for repairing the abdominal muscles that have separated or weakened after pregnancy.
Whether simply due to genetics and aging, or due to weight loss, many people struggle with loose skin on specific areas such as the mons or upper pubic area, the upper arms, the upper or lower back, and the thighs. In these cases, there are individualized procedures to enhance contours of each area. These Beverly Hills surgeries improve the appearance of body contours by trimming excess skin, and repositioning the remaining skin in a contour that is more aesthetically pleasing. If excess fat is also involved, this can often be addressed at the same time as well.
Pregnancy, aging, and weight fluctuations may result in declining breast volume and breast sagging. Breast augmentation, reduction, or lift surgery could improve the breasts’ contours by reshaping tissue or inserting implants. Fat transfer to the breasts is also a way to augment the volume without implants. These surgeries can also reduce the size of areolae to maintain good proportions and positioning on the breast.

The field of cosmetic surgery has grown exponentially over the past two decades, with new options available to sculpt, contour, and reshape almost every part of the body from head to toe, with dramatic and often life-changing results.
While the physical and emotional benefits may be remarkable, surgical options for beautifying your body should not be undertaken lightly. The skill and experience of your surgeon is key to enjoying natural-looking, proportional results and a comfortable recovery period.

With each consultation, she will honestly assess the needs and desires of her patients, and recommend the right combination of procedures in order to achieve those goals and restore joyful confidence with minimal surgery and downtime.
Loose or sagging skin is not a concern that will go away with creams or exercises, and sometimes areas of fat are stubborn or resistant even with exercise. Body sculpting in Beverly Hills can enhance your contours, addressing excess fat and/or loose skin. You can choose non-surgical or surgical options depending on your ideal amount of fat removal and other cosmetic preferences.
