Body Contouring

Body Contouring by Pittsburgh Surgeon Dr. Dennis Hurwitz

Everyone knows that maintaining a healthy weight can be an important step in preventing disease and living longer. Most people look and feel significantly better when their weight is under control. Unfortunately, major weight loss can have undesirable side effects as well as benefits. Body contouring surgery, available from the Pittsburgh Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery, can help to remove the loose, sagging skin left behind after weight loss. Body contouring can also remove pockets of fat that have remained unaffected by your weight loss. Dr. Dennis Hurwitz is one of the nation's leaders when it comes to body contouring. He has been featured in many articles and on national television for his expertise in performing body contouring procedures.

Body Contouring Defined

Body contouring surgery consists of a combination of surgical techniques. Since every person is different, Dr. Hurwitz will determine which procedures will give you the best results possible.

Bulges of fat beneath the skin can be removed through ultrasonic liposuction, tumescent liposuction, or power-assisted liposuction, and unwanted loose and sagging skin can be removed from the body, breasts, arms, legs, and face. Sophisticated body contouring sculpts the features in an attractive, gender-specific way. Some scarring is unavoidable; however, Dr. Hurwitz can generally position incisions so that scars fall within normal undergarment lines.

The Circumferential Body Lift

If you need a great deal of excess skin removed due to pregnancy or massive weight loss, you may be a candidate for Dr. Hurwitz's signature body contouring technique, known as the Total Body Lift™. This type of body contouring surgery, performed at the Pittsburgh Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery, involves the comprehensive removal of skin using an innovative circumferential technique, meaning that Dr. Hurwitz will remove skin from around the whole body, not just the front or sides. The result is a shapely, attractive silhouette that is an improvement over results from so-called piecemeal surgeries.

Body Contouring Risks

Some of the risks of body contouring surgery are delayed wound healing, infection, excessive scarring, contour irregularities, asymmetry, and significant medical complications. The probability of complications is directly related to the size and extent of body contouring surgery (the bigger you are, the more likely there will be problems). We believe that the risks are inversely related to the skill and experience of your surgeon. Dr. Hurwitz is known as a master when it comes to body contouring, both in Pittsburgh and around the country. He will take all steps and precautions necessary to minimize your risks and enhance the quality of your results.
