For starters, it’s important to remember that your body contouring program will tailored to your unique needs. Rest assured, we will select a proper program for you during your initial consultation with Dr. Barker. That said, our body contouring procedure in Denver typically involves general anesthesia. It may include techniques like high-definition VASER liposuction and skin/tissue excision to achieve optimal results. While body contouring surgery may require larger incisions than other cosmetic procedures, Dr. Barker prioritizes minimizing the visibility of incisions for a more aesthetically pleasing outcome.
As part of post-operative care, patients may be advised to wear compression garments to reduce swelling, and drainage tubes may be utilized if necessary. Our Peak Plastic Surgery Center team will provide detailed aftercare instructions to support the healing process. The recovery period typically involves approximately six weeks before activities can be fully resumed, although individual recovery times may vary based on the complexity of the surgery. Dr. Barker will ensure that you are well informed about the timing of restrictions and the gradual return to normal activities safely and effectively.
