Sculpted Elegance

Body contouring in San Francisco has evolved in recent years to include both surgical and nonsurgical methods designed to create a desired body profile. Whether it’s a muffin top that continues to linger or loose skin after significant weight loss, both men and women tend to have areas of their body that present substantial cosmetic concerns. Unwanted bulges and folds of loose skin can keep clothing from fitting comfortably and diminish your self-confidence in your appearance. Dr. Maas offers an extensive range of non-surgical body contouring options at his San Francisco location and can recommend a trusted surgeon for any of your surgical body contouring needs.

Nonsurgical Body Contouring

Trimming and toning the body doesn’t always have to mean surgery. Some patients may find they can achieve their body contouring results without incisions or anesthesia. Under the guidance of Dr. Maas, the Appearance Care Center™ offers the following options for nonsurgical treatments:

Ultrashape

Ultrashape is an innovative device that uses ultrasonic energy to target unwanted fat cells from areas like the abdomen without disrupting surrounding tissue and skin. The procedure does not require any recovery process afterward, and the results will be long-lasting.

Cellfina

Cellfina uses a proven cellulite treatment technique known as subcision to eliminate the cottage cheese look from the skin. The procedure releases the fibrous bands that constrict, leading to skin dimpling. The treatment is done on an outpatient basis using local anesthetic and downtime afterward is minimal.

VelaShape

VelaShape combines three innovative technologies; bipolar radiofrequency energy, infrared light, and mechanical massage, to shape the buttocks, hips, and thighs and reduce the appearance of cellulite. In addition to noticeably smoother skin, you might also see a reduction in circumference that makes those skinny jeans a little more comfortable. Treatments are virtually painless and require no downtime. Most patients see the best results after a series of treatment sessions, as well as maintenance sessions every few months.

Kybella

Unwanted fat is not restricted to areas like the abdomen and thighs. Even the area under the chin can accumulate submental fat, which can make you look older and heavier than you are. Kybella is administered in a group of injections that destroys fat cells underneath the chin to sculpt a more defined and youthful facial profile.

Introduction to Invasive and Non-Invasive Body Contouring at The Maas Clinic™

The Maas Clinic offers consulting for body cosmetic surgery along with other acclaimed plastic surgeons across San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Surgical Body Enhancement

For patients in need of more correction, surgical procedures are often the best option. Dr. Maas has an extensive network of plastic surgeons specializing in surgical body contouring in Northern and Southern California. For a referral to a surgeon in your area, please get in touch with us by calling (415) 567-7000. These treatments are typically performed on an outpatient basis and recovery time varies based on the specific procedure done. Options in surgical body contouring include:

Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the least invasive methods of surgical body sculpting and is adept at eliminating isolated fat deposits from nearly any area.

Fat cells are removed via a narrow tube called a cannula that requires tiny incisions to insert into the treatment area. Scarring is minimal, and downtime doesn’t usually take more than a few days. In some cases, the fat removed may be injected into areas of the face to smooth away wrinkles and restore youthful volume.

Targeting Problem Spots

Surgery can be used to target specific problem areas as well, such as a tummy tuck to smooth and firm the abdomen and a buttock lift to add youthful curves to the backside. Even the most private areas can be enhanced using vaginoplasty or labiaplasty to reverse signs of aging in the genital area, improving both the appearance and the function of the vagina.

Mommy Makeover

Women who have gone through pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing may have multiple areas they would like restored after the toll is taken on their bodies. A mommy makeover typically refers to a combination of procedures designed just for this purpose. Common treatments might include breast augmentation, a breast lift, a tummy tuck, and liposuction.

Implants

When the gym is not sufficient in contouring areas like the chest, biceps, and calves, implants can provide the sculpting you want. These synthetic, biocompatible devices come in a range of shapes and sizes to accommodate your body proportions and desired outcome. Implants offer long-lasting, dramatic results when performed correctly.

Post-Bariatric Surgery Help

Massive weight loss, which often occurs after bariatric surgery, can pose a host of issues for some patients.

Because the weight comes off quickly, the skin does not tend to conform well to the new body contour. This leaves loose skin folds that can cause irritation and inflammation while interfering with the results of the weight loss.

Surgical procedures to excise excess skin are often necessary to create a more attractive contour and eliminate the discomfort. Some of the options in post-bariatric surgery might include:

Arm Lift

The upper arm is an area where significant loose skin tends to develop, causing sagging that is sometimes referred to as the “bat wing” look. An arm lift or brachioplasty removes the skin from the underside of the underarm to create a smoother, leaner profile.

Body Lift

A body lift addresses the entire lower portion of the body, including the abdomen, back, buttocks, and thighs. While the surgery is extensive and requires additional recovery time over other procedures, the results can be quite dramatic.

Thigh Lift

Sagging at the top of the leg can be treated using a thigh lift that firms both the inner and out thighs.

Other Options

Lift procedures after massive weight loss might also include a breast lift, buttock lift, or even a facelift. Your surgical plan will be tailored to your precise needs and may be done as a single procedure or staged surgeries to achieve all necessary corrections. Body contouring comes in a variety of procedures today, so you can get the results you want with targeted treatments designed for precise results.
