Body Contouring in Rancho Mirage, CA

Body contouring refers to a series of procedures aimed at streamlining the body proportions for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. For instance, when some people shed a lot of weight, they may be left with excess saggy skin and some stubborn pockets of fat that prove resistant to exercise and diet. In such a case, a body contouring procedure can help them achieve a more defined figure. Areas targeted during body contouring include flabby upper arms, saggy buttocks and thighs, saggy breasts, and flabby abdominal areas. Some of the common body contouring procedures includes a panniculectomy to remove excess fat and hanging skin in the abdominal area, thigh lifts, breast lifts, arm lifts, and other related procedures. Dr. Sofonio, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, offers body countering procedures to residents of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.

Body Contouring Procedure

You will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sofonio for him to conduct a comprehensive analysis of your physical and medical condition to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. He will also ask you questions relating to your expectations from the body contouring procedure. Your exact treatment will depend on the outcome of the analysis of your condition and may involve a combination of any of the various body contouring procedures.

Post-Treatment Care

Post-treatment care depends on the type of procedures you undergo, as well as the extensiveness and invasiveness of the treatments. Dr. Sofonio will instruct you on the best post-treatment care tailored to your condition. Body contouring procedures are not a replacement for sensible diet and exercise, which will be needed to maintain your new look. Also, if you need several procedures, Dr. Sofonio may carry out the surgery in stages to give your body time to recover.


Do not expect to see the final result until the complete regimen of body contouring procedures is completed. You should also allow your body to heal completely, and make all the necessary adjustments.
