Recapture the Body of Your Youth with Body Contouring

Dr. John F. Zavell performs body contouring procedures at his practice in Toledo, OH, that helps reduce fat, remove excess skin, and tighten areas of the body for a slimmer shape. Whether done independently or after massive weight loss, these procedures can help you feel better about how you look. 

Arm Lift

Even worse than the urge to cover up your arms is the issue of finding clothing that fits properly and allows you to even get your arms in the sleeves. This problem area cannot be corrected with exercise alone. An arm lift, or brachioplasty, helps to reduce sagging skin while tightening and reshaping the upper arm area. The results from brachioplasty can be visualized almost immediately following surgery. Personal recovery time varies and can be discussed thoroughly during consultation with Dr. Zavell.

Thigh Lift

Sometimes, even fitness and weight loss efforts are not enough. If your goals for a firmer, more youthful-looking overall body image is just out of reach, a surgical thigh lift (thighplasty) may be right for you. This surgery reshapes the thighs by reducing excess skin, and in some cases fat, resulting in smoother skin and better-proportioned contours of the thighs and lower body. Oftentimes a thigh lift is included in a Mommy Makeover or done in conjunction with other procedures after a massive weight loss transformation. As thigh lifts alone do not remove excess fat deposits, liposuction may be an option to do simultaneously with this procedure.

Massive Weight Loss

Weight loss alone is a difficult endeavor; when a person can achieve major weight loss that is quite an accomplishment. Generally, after this considerable weight loss you can be left with loose and stretched skin that lacks the elasticity to bounce back to your new body shape. Body contouring after massive weight loss is a huge benefit when it comes to dealing with unsightly and cumbersome extra skin.

Some of the procedures involved with body contouring can be:

  • Face Lift – sagging of the mid-face, jowls and neck 
  • Breast Lift – sagging, flattened breasts
  • Tummy Tuck – apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen
  • Thigh Lift – sagging of the inner, outer and mid-thigh
  • Arm Lift – sagging of the upper arms

full body lift is a comprehensive treatment which combines two or more body contouring procedures to help patients achieve the look they desire. Personal recovery time for your procedures will be determined based on your procedure choices. Any questions or concerns will be addressed through a thorough and extended consultation with Dr. Zavell. Continued maintenance of your weight loss will result in long lasting results from your body contouring procedures.

Mommy Makeover

The time has come for you to reclaim your body and renew the confidence within yourself. During pregnancy your figure was no longer your own and restoring it through your usual diet and exercise has proven ineffective. Dr. Zavell knows the challenges you face and is eager to help you regain your original self.

Careful attention and consideration is given to your desired results and a makeover plan is crafted after thorough consultations.

"I received a lower body lift from Dr. Zavell and the results have been phenomenal. I had lost a significant amount of weight due to bariatric surgery, and the lower body lift polished the results of my weight loss. Clothing fits beautifully, and a smile comes along with it. I wouldn't feel the need to search elsewhere for a plastic surgeon because Dr. Zavell is an expert. Dr. Zavell is a conscientious, reputable surgeon who takes excellent care to make sure he delivers a positive outcome to his patients.”
