Plus Size Body Contouring
Conveniently located to serve St. Louis, Missouri
Dr. Cabbabe specializes in Plus Size body contouring and performs these procedures regularly with astonishing results This refers to patients undergoing body contouring with a BMI greater than or equal to 30. The most common procedures performed include tummy tuck with Hi-def lipo/lipoabdominoplasty, 360 Lipo/Brazilian Butt Lift and breast lift/reduction. Generally, a greater amount of liposuction is required to contour and shape the torso.
Because Plus Size patients require significantly more liposuction to enhance their results, surgeon experience becomes critical to ensure safety. Prolonged and excessive operating times with associated blood loss increase the risk for infections and other complications. These complications are often times not evident for 2-4 weeks after surgery and generally require additional procedures. Precautions are taken for patients including limiting operating room time, overnight stay in the hospital for significant procedures, liberal use of drains and close follow up by Dr. Cabbabe.
Compression garments are worn for 1-3 months after surgery. Results are amazing within 3 months and are astonishing by 9 months as the swelling slowly subsides. Lymphatic massages are recommended to decrease the risk of fibrosis in the tissues related to liposuction.
