About Body Contouring
The term "body contouring" is one that is regularly used in the aesthetic industry to represent a number of procedures that can be employed to create a shapelier figure. Those who have lost weight, or whose weight has fluctuated over the years, may desire to have a body contouring procedure at Dorner Plastic Surgery to minimize fat, tighten the skin, and sculpt certain areas of the body. In addition, body contouring can be used for women and men who are aging and find that diet and exercise alone no longer provide the shape they desire. Our experienced aesthetic team offers nonsurgical body contouring with innovative truSculpt by Cutera technology. Through this noninvasive treatment, the possibilities to redefine and rejuvenate your physique are endless. Contact our office in Dublin, OH to schedule your body contouring consultation.
"I will ONLY GO TO HIM!!! He did an amazing job! I researched for years and finally picked Dr. Dorner!!! I’m the first they asked years ago to do a video testimony on my experience of Breast Augmentation, and last I seen, I am still on his website 7 years later!! “Kim from Clyde”! He is seriously amazing and I always recommend him! So far I have had 2 people also drive about 3 hours to go to him and they thank me to this day for my recommendation and are so happy with their results!!!"- K.S. / Healthgrades / Jun 14, 2020
"Dr. Dorner and his staff are absolutely fantastic! From the consultation through surgery and post-op appointments they have been phenomenal. I feel like I’m part of the family when I go in to see him. Everyone is so friendly. I didn’t feel rushed through my appointments and I felt like he really listened to my concerns and was willing to answer any and all of my questions. I’m 2 weeks post surgery (liposuction) and I’m very pleased with my results. I can’t wait to see them after I’m fully recovered. If you’re thinking about having anything done I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery. They are the best!"- M.A. / Google / Jun 11, 2020
"I wish I could give more than five stars; AMAZING experience! I've struggled to build muscle/bulk in certain areas of my body my whole life and decided it was time to take action. For about 6 months, I researched options and plastic surgeons, mostly based in LA and NY. I luckily stumbled across Dr. Dorner in my search and I'm so glad I found him. The whole staff is very friendly, supportive, smart and very accommodating. Dr. Dorner made recommendations based on the results I was trying to achieve and I have to say, he knocked it out of the park. I highly recommend Dorner Plastic Surgery."- R.C. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

"When All else Fails - If you've read my first procedure review, you know what's happening. If not, I'll give a brief synopsis for you.Back in 2016; I worked my a** off, literally. After losing 90 pounds I was left with stubborn belly fat and saggy skin around my abdomen. It was really affecting me and my view of my body. I worked extremely hard and felt I had nothing to show for it. Enter in, Dr. Dorner.I had my tummy tuck with muscle repair and liposuction done in September of 2016. 12 weeks into recovery..........Pregnant.I was extremely worried. I had just had this major abdominal surgery and now it was going to be undone; would it be okay for the baby, is it going to be too tight, would there be any complications? I had an amazing OB/GYN and it turned out her brother is a plastic surgeon. She said that she has had several patients that have had a tummy tuck and then had babies, with little complications, although they hadn't been as soon after.Long story short, everything turned out fine. I was fine, baby was fine (although she was breech and we couldn't get her to turn - no matter how hard we tried) and she was born in August of 2017.During my pregnancy I gained about 29 pounds. After my pregnancy, I gained additional weight. You know....new baby, whatever sleep I could get, nursing..these things took priority. I have managed to lose 23 pounds. So that's great, but it hasn't been lost from where I want. I've been trying hard, not as hard as before but still hard and the fats just not budging.I saw Dr. Dorner today for a consultation; after looking at the areas around my hips, he agreed and said he could perform liposuction with no issues. He did ask if I had had any drastic weight loss prior to my tummy tuck because I have more skin than he'd expect for someone who gained a small amount during pregnancy. I can't fault him for asking, I doubt he remembers my previous history, so I said yes. He briefly mentioned a posterior body tuck which I guess is like a tummy tuck for the backside. No thanks. Just the lipo please. I can live with my cellulite and not have to finance a down payment on a house.The quote was less than I imagined so I'm fairly certain this is going to happen. Just have to plan when; it looks like it will be shortly before mother's day, he's good at what he does and books out pretty far, plus it'll be my gift to myself."- M. / RealSelf / Mar 10, 2020
You may be an ideal candidate for body contouring if you have sagging skin, deflated body parts (such as the breasts or buttocks), or fat in areas that are hard to lose. The abdomen, lower back, hips, flanks, and neck are examples of areas where fat deposits can collect, creating unwanted bulges. The best candidates for body contouring are Dublin and Columbus, OH area individuals who are at a healthy, ideal weight and want a tighter, more defined body.
After your consultation, Dr. Dorner will create a body contouring treatment plan for you. Nonsurgical treatments are performed at Dorner Plastic Surgery without sedation. During your appointment, Dr. Dorner will use a state-of-the-art handpiece to deliver radiofrequency wavelengths to predetermined problem areas. Most patients equate the sensation to that of a hot stone massage. There is no need for recovery time after your procedure. Although you may feel some tenderness several days post-treatment, you can return to normal activities immediately following your truSculpt appointment.
What to Expect
Nonsurgical treatments typically do not have any downtime. It is common for some patients to combine several surgical procedures on several body parts, which may require an overnight stay. Body contouring is meant to reshape the body, so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures, or both, you will notice a slimmer, tighter body and a more defined profile.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does body contouring surgery cost?
Your cost for body contouring will depend on what is part of your treatment plan. In your consultation, our team will listen to your needs and wants before performing a physical examination. We can then give you recommendations and help you develop your unique treatment plan. After this, we will be better able to estimate your costs and explain your payment options. Dorner Plastic Surgery accepts many methods, including low-interest medical financing, which we can help you find.
What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
The combination of procedures will be outlined during your initial consultation. Procedures may be scheduled in stages depending on your overall physical health and the number of areas being addressed. Typically, the grouping will be staged with a combination of either the upper body parts (abdomen, arms, breasts, neck, face) or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, flanks, knees).
How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, the results of your body contouring surgery can last a long time. To help maintain your results, you should stay at a stable weight. Significant weight changes or pregnancy after your surgery may impact your results. Natural aging will continue, so you may eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Talk to a member of our team about suggestions that may help you sustain your results.
