Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
Body contouring is not a *weight-loss alternative. As such, you should be very close to your ideal weight and in *fairly good physical condition. Most of our body contouring patients choose cosmetic surgery because they have not been successful toning and tightening certain areas through exercise alone.
Planning your Body Contouring Surgery
Following body sculpting surgery, you may not be able to work out that particular area for a few weeks. This is something you may want to keep in mind if you are an athlete who is training for a competition.
How is Body Contouring Performed?
The exact technique will be discussed in greater detail during your consultation with Dr. Jean.

Recovering from Body Contouring
During your recovery period, you may need to wear a compression garment during the *day and change your surgical bandage just before going to bed each night. Light activity such as walking is also recommended to keep your blood circulating and prevent clotting.
