Because You Are a Work of Art
With time, it’s common to develop stubborn fat and excess skin in various areas of the body, creating bulges and folds where you once had smooth, firm contours. Body contouring refers to a family of procedures that involve reshaping and recontouring certain problem areas with the use of liposuction, Renuvion and/or skin excision. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon Richland offers all of the right body contouring treatments in Newport Beach to provide you with a sleek, toned look from head to toe.
Customize your procedure and achieve your best results possible with Dr. Richland’s expert guidance and proclivity for excellence. Together, you’ll curate your treatment plan to effectively address your unique concerns.
Exploring Your Candidacy
You may be a good candidate for body contouring if pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight fluctuations have left you with excess skin or pockets of stubborn fat that diet and exercise cannot get rid of. If your main concern is excess hanging skin, you will likely need a skin excision procedure.
Your consultation with Dr. Richland will involve several steps to ensure that every aspect of your care is tailored to your specific needs. First, he will listen closely to your concerns and treatment preferences, in addition to examining target areas and reviewing your medical history. Based on his assessment, he will present you with the most appropriate treatment options and, together, you will devise your ultimate treatment plan.
Your specific care plan will depend on the type of surgery performed. Based on the details of your treatment, your recovery may take anywhere from several days to several weeks. Dr. Richland will discuss what you can expect your recovery to look like and will also provide you with detailed instructions for post-operative care.
While you will notice an immediate difference in the amount of tissue in treated areas, it will take some time for you to heal and realize the full extent of your results. Once your incisions are healed, and tissues settle, you can look forward to your sculpted physique.
Dr. Richland will take the time to listen to your specific concerns and patient goals. He will then explain various treatment options, and together you will formulate a surgical plan tailored to meet your needs. Each patient may require any combination of the following procedures:
