Body ContouringThere are a lot of questions people have about body contouring. Yahoo News tries to answer one in a recent article titled “Do Non-Invasive Body Contouring Procedures Actually Work?

Charlottes Book of Yahoo News writes, “‘What’s changed is all the different options we have,’ says Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, a dermatologist in New York City who offers a wide array of both non-invasive and surgical fat removal procedures in his Fifth Avenue office. He approaches each patient’s needs individually, aiming to give them the best results with the least amount of downtime, pain and expense. ‘I am a carpenter that has more than just a hammer. I have every tool on the bench,’ says Dr. Frank. ‘What’s changed is all the different options we have,’ says Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank, a dermatologist in New York City who offers a wide array of both non-invasive and surgical fat removal procedures in his Fifth Avenue office.

WTOP also explores body contouring in a recent article titled “Body Contouring: Beyond the Weight Loss.” According to the author of the article, “It’s a common scenario, especially among people who lose 100 pounds or more: The fat is gone, but you’re left with excess, sagging skin in its place. Even a drop of 50 pounds can produce the same deflated appearance, frustrating those who have worked so hard to make a positive change. ‘Basically, the skin has lost its elasticity and can’t spring back into place,’ says Derek Masden, MD, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. ‘Despite shedding the weight, many people still can’t fit into smaller clothing. Exercising may be difficult. And the skin folds may rub against other skin, leading to extra moisture, chafing, rashes or even infections.’ For some, body contouring surgery may be the answer. Body contouring is an umbrella term for a variety of procedures including tummy tucks and lifts to the upper arms, midsection, back, thighs, buttocks and hips. Patients may need more than one procedure to get the desired results. The best candidates are those whose weight has stabilized, are otherwise healthy and committed to maintaining their current weight through good nutrition and fitness.”
