Who is a Candidate for Body Contouring?

If you have been frustrated after gym workouts because you’re not seeing the type of dramatic results you crave, body contouring may be ideal for your goals. Good candidates are at a stable weight but need help to remove excess skin and fat that are obscuring their silhouette. It’s important that patients are non-smokers in good mental and physical health. They should be free from any significant medical concerns and have realistic, positive outlooks towards their procedures. Dr. Balinger will perform an in-depth consultation, during which he will create a customized treatment plan to accomplish your body contouring objectives.

What Can I Expect From My Recovery After Body Contouring?

Recovery after body contouring in Houston will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the work performed and on the client’s personal healing abilities. In most cases, you’ll need a friend or family member to drive you home and assist you with basic chores for the first day or so. You may want to arrange for childcare ahead of time to help streamline your recovery process.

Dr. Balinger always practices a conservative and precision-oriented technique in order to minimize the risk of complications and reduce your downtime. He will provide compressive garments after surgery to help reduce your overall swelling and keep your newly sculpted contours intact. Additionally, he will provide you with the appropriate pain medications, antibiotics, and anti-nausea pills so that your recovery is comfortable and stress-free. You will receive a detailed aftercare plan that goes over topics such as wound care, sleeping, bathing and showering, resuming exercise, and returning to work. Most patients find they can return to work within a few weeks, provided their job is sedentary. Vigorous exercise and other strenuous activities will need to wait until the 4-6-week mark or the point at which they are approved by Dr. Balinger.
