Body Contouring FAQ

How much does body contouring surgery cost?
Your cost for body contouring will be based on what is part of your customized treatment plan. In your initial consultation, Dr. Nuveen will listen to your goals before performing an examination. He will then give you suggestions and create your unique surgical plan. After this, he can estimate costs and discuss your options for payment. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates takes many methods, including low-interest medical financing.

Will insurance pay for my body contouring surgery?
While most cosmetic surgeries are not typically covered by health insurance, there are cases where body contouring could be eligible for insurance coverage. When excess skin is causing medical issues, like chronic infections, you might be able to apply for coverage from your insurance. Coverage varies based on your carrier and policy, but if you would like to use your insurance, please let Dr. Nuveen know during your consultation. A team member at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates will help you talk to your insurance for maximum coverage.

What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be outlined during your consultation with Dr. Nuveen. Your body contouring might be scheduled in two or more stages based on your overall health and the number of areas being treated. Typically, the stages will be grouped by combining either the upper body (abdomen, arms, breasts, neck, face) or the lower body (thighs, butt, flanks, knees). This staging is done to minimize the risk of complications, like infection and blood loss. This also makes your recovery easier and faster.

Will I have scarring after my surgery?
In general, body contouring surgery will create scars. Most patients find that once the incisions heal, the scarring is no longer a worry as the results are so impressive. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Nuveen makes an effort to minimize the appearance of scars by placing the incisions inconspicuously. Post-surgery care is also important. Topical creams and ointments might be prescribed to improve the healing process. In time, the scars will fade and blend in with your natural skin.

How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, the results of your body contouring surgery will last for a long time. To help maintain your results, you should stay at a healthy, steady weight. Dramatic changes in your weight or pregnancy after your surgery can affect your results. Your body will continue to age naturally, so you may eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Talk to Dr. Nuveen about suggestions that may help your results last.
