Plan Your Procedure
After your consultation, Dr. Lee will create a body contouring treatment plan for you. This plan can consist of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create an incision that can be concealed by undergarments and to reduce unwanted fat and excess skin, leaving a slimmer, tighter contour. Nonsurgical treatments are usually performed at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center without sedation. This may include laser skin tightening, liposuction, injectable fillers, etc.
What to Expect
If you are having a surgical procedure, you will be sent home to heal and recuperate afterward. Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It is common for some patients to combine several surgical procedures on several body parts, which may require an overnight stay. Body contouring is meant to reshape the body, so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures, or both, you will notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined profile.
