What is Body Contouring?

Whether as the result of aging or fluctuations in weight, skin can begin to droop and sag as it loses elasticity. While a good diet and active lifestyle will help maintain a healthy weight, the loose areas of skin will often stick around. Dr. Hernandez performs a variety of body contouring and skin tightening surgeries to help reshape the body and restore confidence in one’s appearance. These procedures are specially designed to reduce excess skin and restore a youthful and natural shape. Dr. Elizabeth Hernandez currently offers the following contouring procedures for men and women at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio.


Arm Lift

An arm lift can help to reduce sagging excess skin from along the upper arms. This is a common problem following a significant drop in weight and can also develop with age. Dr. Hernandez can remove the loose skin and create a naturally toned and youthful appearance of the arms. No more hiding beneath long-sleeve tops or feeling too shy to wave hello.


Lower Body Lift

A lower body lift addresses a circumferential area of loose skin around the lower body, including the abdomen, lower back, flanks, and buttocks. Dr. Hernandez recommends a full lower body lift for men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight and are now struggling with large areas of loose skin throughout their body.


Thigh Lift

A thigh lift is performed to reduce loose, drooping skin from the upper thigh area. Sagging of the skin on the thighs can also occur due to factors such as weight loss and age. Dr. Hernandez can perform a thigh lift procedure to help restore a firm and sleek appearance of the legs so that patients can once again feel confident in a pair of shorts or bathing suit while enjoying the San Antonio sunshine.
