Get the Shape You’ve Always Wanted With Body Contouring
Unfortunately for many of us, as we age, our bodies keep reminding us that they are a constant work-in-progress. And, on top of it all, while you love being a mom, the effects that pregnancy and breastfeeding have had on your figure, self-confidence, and vitality make you feel even worse.
Dr. Stephen Bresnick and the entire care team, understand how frustrating it can be to attain your dream body shape. With the wide range of body contouring treatments we offer, we’re here to help you combat your trouble zones so that you can achieve a more shapely figure. Read on to learn why you should consider body contouring to get the shape you’ve always wanted.
What Is Body Contouring?
Body contouring refers to procedures or treatments that enhance your silhouette. It is sometimes referred to as body sculpting because these procedures allow you to “sculpt” your body shape by removing excess fat and skin while, at the same time, if required, tightening the abdominal muscles and other parts of your body.
There are many forms of body contouring, including both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Dr. Bresnick offers a wide range of body contouring procedures, each of which can be fully customized to meet your unique aesthetic goals.
As a body contouring technique, Liposuction can shape and slim areas of the body carrying excess fat, typically as isolated fat pockets on the thighs, hips, back, and love handles.
Also known as fat freezing, CoolSculpting, offered by Dr. Bresnick’s SILK team in Encino, CA, is a non-invasive treatment that uses patented cooling technology to permanently break down fat cells, reducing body fat without damaging other tissues. At reduced temperatures, fat cells freeze, resulting in your body naturally eliminating them in 1-3 months or more, resulting in up to 20%-25% reduction of fat in a treated area.
Restore elasticity and firmness with skin tightening Laser Treatments, also delivered by the SILK team, to stimulate collagen production and help you look and feel younger without surgery.
Mommy Makeover Procedures
Breast Surgery: After pregnancy, the breasts typically lose their fullness and perkiness and begin to droop. As part of your body contouring, Dr. Bresnick can restore the fullness with a breast augmentation procedure, re-establishing upper breast volume and cleavage. When the breasts are sitting lower than desired, a breast augmentation with lift can create a more youthful appearance when the breasts are restored to a higher position.
Tummy Tuck: Also known as abdominoplasty, this procedure removes excess skin and fat and tightens the abdominal muscles, especially if they became separated during pregnancy. The result is a flatter, tighter tummy with a narrower waistline.
Are You a Candidate for Body Contouring?
Due to the nature of body contouring procedures, not everyone is an ideal candidate. Dr. Bresnick will review your health history and carry out an examination to determine if body contouring is right for you. You are a great candidate if:
- You have excess skin after significant weight loss
- You’re already close to your ideal weight
- You have positive, realistic goals
- You are a non-smoker
