Body Contouring in Newport Beach, CA
Attaining a sculpted and trim body contour is challenging for patients experiencing a busy schedule, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and other environmental factors. Cosmetic body contouring allows you to achieve the shapely and youthful physique that has previously been unattainable with diet and exercise.
Surgical Body Contouring
Liposuction removes stubborn, diet and exercise-resistant pockets of localized fat from the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, knees, ankles, back, flanks, arms, neck, and cheeks. Liposuction contours your body by making small incisions in the target area, through which the unwanted fat is suctioned out using a thin, hollow tube. Liposuction can be performed alone or in conjunction with procedures like a tummy tuck or arm lift surgery, and the fat removed during liposuction can be transferred to other areas of the body to combat volume loss.
Tummy tuck surgery addresses skin and muscle laxity in the lower part of the abdomen that persists after pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural progression of aging. An incision is placed low on the abdomen (along the pubic line) to tighten loose or separated abdominal muscles and remove excess skin. Tummy tuck surgery is often combined with liposuction to remove excess pockets of fat.
The Mommy Makeover restores a woman’s figure to its pre-baby contour. This combination of procedures targets the areas most affected by pregnancy and childbirth, such as the breasts and midsection. Although each woman’s Mommy Makeover is specific to her, most surgeries include a tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation with or without a breast lift.
Buttock Augmentation is the process of lifting and enhancing the volume, shape, and projection of your glutes. Buttock augmentation is commonly performed through the Brazilian Butt Lift, where fat is removed from the abdomen, thighs, or flanks, and transferred to the buttocks. For patients who do not have sufficient excess fat to harvest elsewhere, silicone butt implants can create similar definition and enhancement.
Plastic surgery after major weight loss addresses the excess skin and pockets of fat that remain after losing a substantial amount of weight. Plastic surgery after major weight loss combines a series of techniques to trim, define, and enhance the body contour so that the results of your weight loss are on full display. This procedure often combines a tummy tuck, liposuction, thigh lift, butt lift, arm lift, breast lift, and neck lift.
Arm lift surgery removes sagging skin from the upper portion of the arms that contribute to the appearance of “bat wings.” An incision is made from elbow to armpit to remove excess skin and define the contours of the upper arms. Arm lift surgery is commonly combined with liposuction to remove any excess fat.
Non-surgical Body Contouring
CoolSculpting® utilizes patented cooling technology to slim the abdomen, hips, flanks, and thighs. This non-surgical body contouring procedure delivers controlled cooling to unwanted fat that causes the fat cells to crystallize before they die; these damaged cells are then naturally metabolized by the body. This procedure results in slimmer contours without the need for surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions About Body Contouring
Is body contouring a permanent solution?
Yes, it can be. Both surgical and non-surgical body contouring procedures can have long-lasting results, as long as you don’t gain weight after the procedure. The key is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Subsequent pregnancies can also impact the quality of your results.
Is body contouring a weight-loss solution?
No, body contouring is meant for toning the body. The ideal candidate is only a few pounds from their goal weight and has some stubborn pockets of fat. If you are still in the process of losing a lot of weight, it is recommended you hold off on body contouring until you get to a steady weight.
Is the body contouring process painful?
The answer depends on the type of body contouring you choose. Non-surgical options are nearly painless, require no recovery time, and let you go on with your day right after the procedure.
Surgical options, such as liposuction, will require some downtime after the procedure, including bruising, swelling, and some localized discomfort. Your doctor will use anesthesia so you don’t feel anything and prescribe pain medication, if necessary, for your recovery.
When will I see my body contouring results?
For non-invasive options, it can take several weeks for the fat cells to be eliminated from the body. It’s also recommended that you come in for multiple treatments to get optimal results.
Surgical procedures offer results right away, but you will have to recover and have the swelling go down to see your new figure.
Are there any risks for surgical body contouring procedures?
Any surgical procedure carries an element of risk, including infections, scarring, or anesthesia complications. Your plastic surgeon will evaluate your current health and medical history during your consultation to ensure you are a viable candidate for the procedure.
If you are concerned about surgical risks or you aren’t approved for surgery, the non-invasive options carry no risk at all and might be a better option for you.
How will I know which type of body contouring is right for me?
Your best body contouring solution will ultimately depend on your body, your goals, and other factors. The best thing to do is to book a consultation with Dr. Grazer in Newport Beach. After reviewing your goals, Dr. Grazer will walk you through your options and what they think is the best route for you to take. Ultimately, this personalized approach will help you get the best results.
Can I combine body contouring procedures?
Yes, many surgical procedures can be performed simultaneously for more comprehensive results. For instance, many of the above skin tightening surgical procedures will be paired with liposuction to remove excess skin.
While surgical procedures can be performed together and various non-surgical body contouring procedures can be combined, it is not possible to undergo a surgical procedure and a non-surgical procedure at the same time. Those categories must be performed separately.
Additionally, many people choose to continue getting non-invasive body contouring procedures after surgery. For example, after getting liposuction, a patient might decide to come in for CoolSculpting® to maintain their toned figure.
