Body Contouring Surgery – Athena Clinic in Honolulu, Hawaii
Body contouring from the Athena Clinic in Honolulu, Hawaii is an ideal procedure for patients who have loose skin and excess fat or tissue. Body contouring often combines procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast lift or augmentation. By customizing which procedures are done, individuals can help to balance their features and create the desired effect. People who have lost a significant amount of weight are often good candidates for this procedure. Dramatic weight loss can leave excess skin hanging from the arms, abdomen, and legs. Body contouring can remove this skin while tightening the underlying muscles and removing pockets of fat that still remain.
Body contouring surgery differs from patient to patient, depending on the individual’s needs and goals. In most cases, body contouring is performed under local anesthesia with conscious sedation. Procedures performed may include liposuction, abdominoplasty, and breast surgery. Dr. Peterson makes every effort to minimize scars and place them in inconspicuous locations.
