In a perfect world, we would all be born with a body that is proportioned, free from excess fat and skin, and sculpted. In real life, very few people are in this condition. Body contouring Chicago procedures can allow you to achieve a trimmer, more sculpted look. The procedure may involve both surgical and non-surgical treatments, based upon your current body condition. Body contouring is an umbrella term for body reshaping, and every person is different in what will be required.

Why Have Body Contouring?

Many people who have successfully lost a significant quantity of excess weight, either through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery, are left with hanging skin and tissue. Body contouring Chicago procedures are employed to remove that excess skin and tissue. Others choose to have body contouring to tighten one or more specific zones on the body, including:

  • Thighs

  • Buttocks

  • Abdomen

  • Upper arms

  • Back

  • Chest

You are a unique individual and have personal concerns about your body shape and appearance. Our approach is to treat our patients like members of our own family – and we are completely dedicated to helping them regain confidence and gain more enjoyment out of life. This is often achieved by body contouring – an improvement that results in a body in which they feel more comfortable and attractive.

Surgical Body Contouring

If your body has a large quantity of excess skin and tissue, it may be necessary to correct the problem surgically. Our tummy tuck procedure goes beyond the traditional with a specialized surgery we call the Slim Line Abdominoplasty for a two-in-one tummy tuck that tightens the abdominal muscles and sculpts the flanks (love handles) for a more sculpted look. Dr. Kotis will do a two layer closure in the midline, with a single closure in the lateral side to tighten the flanks. He will also take accurate measurements in the torso to prevent dog ears on either side of the incision.

What Are The Body Contouring Procedures

Body sculpting can include liposuction, abdominoplasty or body lifts for a slimmer figure. These procedures can be performed individually or in combination for a more tailored version of you.

  • Liposuction eliminates excess fat from the back, stomach, thighs, buttocks or arms. Both tumescent and ultrasound-assisted liposuction can slim the body and create new contours.

  • Abdominoplasty or a tummy tuck can tighten and tone the stomach’s appearance. After weight loss sagging skin may hang below the belly button. Dr. Kotis can remove this skin, along with additional fat, for a more toned appearance.

  • Brachioplasty or an arm lift can remove sagging skin and tissue around the arm. Dr. Kotis may perform an arm lift alone or in combination with other body sculpting procedures.

  • Body Lifts - Dr. Kotis also offers body lifts to reshape and contour the body. Patients may opt for a thigh lift or breast lift during a body sculpting procedure. Lifts, combined with liposuction or abdominoplasty, slim the contours of the body for a more slender appearance.

Recovery for Body Contouring Procedures

After a body sculpting procedure, Dr. Kotis will give patients care instructions. As with most procedures, patients may experience bruising and swelling around incision sites. These will subside over time. Dr. Kotis will advise patients when they can return to light activity. Patients can enjoy the full results of body sculpting in as little as a month. They can enjoy a tighter looking figure without excess skin or fat. Dr. Kotis performs procedures for the Schaumburg, Elgin, Hoffman Estates and Evanston areas.

Advanced Techniques for Body Contouring Chicago

Dr. Kotis is not only a talented board-certified plastic surgeon, but a member of a teaching faculty. He makes it a point to stay current with the latest developments in cosmetic and plastic surgery – to benefit his patients. With high-level surgical skills, access to the most innovative and advanced treatments, and an eye for balance and beauty, you can be confident that our Chicago body contouring procedures and techniques produce excellent results.

Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Some of our patients do not need surgery to gain a trimmer, more youthful body. With advances in aesthetic treatments, we have the option of “freezing away the fat” with CoolSculpting. If you have pockets of excess fat and retain good skin flexibility, CoolSculpting can work wonders. A painless, non-surgical treatment, CoolSculpting attacks fat cells, freezing them, without damage to the surrounding tissue. As the weeks pass after treatment, your body naturally sheds the crystalized fat cells, and your body becomes slimmer.

What Are The Benefits Of Body Contouring

Body contouring aims to enhance the silhouette of the body by reshaping the body in desired areas. Body contouring procedures can ultimately make the body appear more feminine, masculine or youthful, depending on the desired results. Patients undergoing body contouring procedures can experience enhanced self-esteem, improved body image and a more youthful and attractive appearance.

How Much Does Body Contouring Cost?

Body contouring or body sculpting refers to a variety of procedures aimed to enhance the silhouette and shape of the body. Depending on the procedures performed, the cost can vary widely among patients. The best way to predict the cost of a specific procedure is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kotis.
