What is Body Contouring?

What You Can Expect

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it can take more than two years for your body contouring procedure to reach the expected results; and maintaining your new shape requires getting regular exercise and following a sensible diet. Consult with your plastic surgeon to determine which body contour surgeries, if any, are appropriate for you.
