What Is Body Contouring?

Body contouring procedure is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape and appearance of the body by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the underlying muscles. These procedures are commonly used to enhance the appearance of areas of the body that have lost their tone and shape. Body contouring is most frequently used to help achieve a more hourglass figure by narrowing the waist and augmenting curves. However, Dr. Rogers will work with you to determine the best custom strategy for accomplishing your unique body shape goals. To get started, reach out to Leif Rogers, MD in Beverly Hills and set up your initial consultation today.

Who Qualifies for Body Contouring?

Candidates for gender-affirming body contouring procedures should be in good overall health and free from any medical conditions that could increase the risk of complications during surgery. They should have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure and understand that the results may take time to fully develop. Candidates should have a stable gender identity and have undergone gender reassignment surgery prior to undergoing the procedures.

Additionally, candidates should be mentally and emotionally prepared for the surgery and understand the physical and emotional changes that may occur as a result of the procedure. It’s important to discuss individual qualifications and expectations with Dr. Rogers, who has experience in performing transgender body contouring procedures. He can evaluate your specific needs and goals and help you determine if you are a good candidate for this particular procedure.

Getting Started with Your Consultation

Before your procedure, Dr. Rogers will meet with you to learn about your aesthetic goals, discuss your gender confirmation preferences, and help to guide you to the treatment options that are ideal for you. Dr. Rogers’ extensive skill and passion for innovation enable him to offer a wide range of body contouring procedures, and he’ll collaborate with you on the development of a bespoke treatment plan that is customized around your personal needs. Once you’ve landed on the ideal procedure, he’ll help you explain exactly what you can expect on the day of your procedure. He’ll explain everything from incision placement to the surgical techniques he’ll be using as he performs your surgery. He’ll also ensure that you’re given a very clear idea of what you can expect during your recovery period, including clear aftercare instructions and a detailed timeline.

Your Body Contouring Experience

Most body contouring procedures are performed under general anesthesia, which means that you will be completely asleep and will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure. Some types of procedures, such as liposuction or a mini tummy tuck, may only take a few hours to complete. More extensive procedures, on the other hand, like a full body lift, can take several hours or even multiple surgeries to complete. Body contouring is a highly customized procedure that is always tailored around the patient’s individual goals. Dr. Rogers will work with you to ensure that you have a clear understanding of what your procedure will entail in advance of your surgery.

After Your Surgery Rest, Recovery, and Results

The recovery time that you experience after your personalized body contouring surgery can range from a few days to several weeks or even months. Dr. Rogers will ensure that you’re given detailed materials that explain what you can expect from your recovery period before your surgery, and our team will be available to you at all times to ensure that you’re resting and recovering comfortably and properly. Immediately after your surgery, it’s completely normal for you to experience swelling, bruising, discomfort, and limited mobility. Dr. Rogers’ team will ensure that you have everything that you need in order to remain as comfortable as possible throughout your recovery, and we’ll also make sure to schedule follow-up appointments. Our team will also be available to address any questions or concerns you may have.
