Body contouring surgery can help tighten and shape the body’s silhouette with precise results that often cannot be accomplished through diet and exercise alone. Essentially, body contouring can help an individual “cross the finish line” after attaining a weight loss goal, as well as refine the body after pregnancy or address the effects of the natural aging process. However, a decision to proceed with any type of plastic surgery is highly personal and, to ensure the best possible outcome, should be made with the guidance of an experienced surgeon. Prospective patients in the Tampa, FL, area can turn with confidence to Dr. Daniel Greenwald, a Board-certified plastic surgeon at Bayshore Plastic Surgery.
Continually recognized as one of America’s Top Surgeons by the Consumers’ Research Council, Dr. Greenwald is a well-respected plastic surgeon who emphasizes a customized approach to patient care. Dr. Greenwald performs several types of body contouring surgery, and not all are suitable for every patient. First and foremost, a patient must be in good overall health with no underlying medical conditions that could potentially complicate a surgical procedure. In general, after a healthy individual has maintained an ideal, stable body weight for more than 12 months, he or she might be a candidate for one or more forms of body contouring surgery, such as liposuction, a tummy tuck, a panniculectomy, or a body lift. These procedures are designed to address lax skin and fatty pockets that have resulted from:
- A significant weight loss achieved through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery
- Several dramatic weight fluctuations
- One or more pregnancies
- An age-related loss of skin elasticity and firmness
Dr. Greenwald and his staff in Tampa, Florida, are committed to educating their patients to help them make fully informed decisions about plastic surgery. As part of this process, he will discuss and evaluate a patient’s goals and expectations, recommend an appropriate treatment plan, provide information on the various surgical techniques and the risks and benefits of each, and explain the body contouring recovery process. To help a prospective patient gain a thorough understanding of what is possible through surgery, Dr. Greenwald makes available his extensive body contouring surgery before and after portfolio.
