When skin takes on a saggy appearance due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss, a person’s self-esteem can be dampened. With body contouring, the body can be transformed through a number of cosmetic procedures, which removes the loose skin and tightens and lifts the remainder. Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City can perform body contouring all over the body, including the stomach, arms, breasts, buttocks, thighs, and hips. When there is excessive fat as well, the doctors can perform liposuction. Following surgery, the body will appear smoother-looking, more toned, lifted, and younger-looking.

Body Contouring Reviews
"Loved having my procedure done at CSA! Staff was wonderful, Dr Caplin was very helpful, listened and thoroughly answered all my questions in pre-op. Unfortunately that doesn't always happen, even at the most expensive places in Dallas;you're often just seen as a number. My surgery went by in what seemed like 5 minutes and I was released to go home as soon as I was comfortable. Will definitely continue to get my work done here."- J.J. / Google / Jan 18, 2021
"Dr. Chaplin is AMAZING! I was a bit apprehensive since she was a woman surgeon but I was so pleased with her and her talent. She takes great pride in her work and has a unique woman's eye for aesthetic beauty. I had a full body lift with fat transfer to the buttocks. I was 310 before WLS and 165 stable for a few years. I never thought I would have surgery but it was one of the best decisions I've made. If I am lucky enough to have another procedure I will definitely use her again. She also has a great bedside manner and is especially skilled!"- T.T. / Google / Mar 04, 2021
"I was definitely scared going in for my procedure. When I got there everyone assured me that everything was going to be fine and that they would make sure I got what I came for. The nurses kept me laughing to where I forgot I was even scared. Dr. Nuveens bed side manners were on point and even the new doctor on board (Dr. Jung) called me the same night to check on me. I would definitely recommand others to this office and I'll definitely be back for more lol. Thank you guys so much for giving me my confidence back! Time for a new woredrobe!"- J.C. / Google / Jul 28, 2021
"I have been overweight my entire adult life. Once I hit my early thirties I came to the realization the only person who could make a change was me. After gastric sleeve surgery and years of dedication to the gym I was able to keep my weight stable culminating in a total loss of 77 pounds. Even though I was happy with the weight on the scale, I was unhappy with the image in the mirror. The significant weight loss had left me with extra skin on my stomach and chest. This had a detremental effect on my body image and overall mental health. Cometic Surgery Affiliates offered me the answer I was looking for. Dr Nuveen, Dr. Jung, and the staff made the entire experience wonderful. They helped me make the best decision for my situation and provided superb care and support throughout the entire process. Thank you, CSA. Confidence truly is priceless."- L.H. / Google / Feb 21, 2022

The process of body contouring is specifically designed to help patients reshape, tighten and firm up problem areas of the body where loose and sagging skin is present. Common areas addressed are the neck, arms, breasts, abdomen, hips, flanks, thighs, buttocks, and knees. It is likely that the doctor will consider a number of procedures to be combined into one surgery (where necessary). This typically involves the upper body parts or lower body parts that are staged together to minimize the risk of infection and shorten the recovery time.
During surgery, the surgeon will trim away and remove excess skin and the underlying tissues will be tightened. Liposuction is often a part of this process. All procedures are performed under general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery and the length of the hospital stay will depend on how many procedures were combined in a single operative setting. Recovery from this surgery is slow and challenging, but the improvements that are visible create a significant boost of self-confidence for the majority of patients.
The price for body contouring varies. How high the cost, depends on how many procedures are being performed together. Factors such as the length of hospital stay will increase the cost. During the initial consultation, a customized surgical plan will be provided with the overall cost expectations outlined, which includes recommended treatments that meet the patient’s aesthetic goals.

Body Contouring FAQs
Procedures I Can Combine?
Procedures are combined and scheduled in stages depending on the overall physical health of the patient and the body areas that need to be addressed. Typically, the grouping will be staged with a combination of either the upper body parts (abdomen, breasts, arms, neck, face), or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, flanks, knees). This staging helps reduce the risk of complications, such as blood loss and infection, since the surgery is limited to an area. This also shortens the length of time for recovery. The combination of procedures will be outlined during the initial consultation with the surgeon.
The Ideal Timing?
Individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight will need to be at or near their goal weight in order to proceed with a body contouring procedure. In addition, body contouring should also be reserved for those who have already had children and are not planning to become pregnant in the future. This is a recommendation only because it preserves the toned appearance created through surgery without compromising the surgical outcome.
Mommy Makeover Procedure?
A mommy makeover is a procedure that is in the same context of body contouring. It is a coined term for a group of body contouring procedures that address areas of the body specifically affected by pregnancy. These are the areas around the breasts, abdomen, hips and buttocks. Again, this is only a general term for body contouring reserved for those who have completed one or more pregnancies.
Will There Be A Lot of Scars?
In general, body contouring procedures will result in scarring. Most patients report that once the incisions heal, the scarring is no longer a primary worry as the benefits of this life-changing surgery are so significant. An experienced plastic surgeon will make every effort to minimize the scars by carefully placing the incisions inconspicuously. Post-surgery care is also very important. Topical creams may be prescribed to help in the healing process. Over time, the scars will lighten and blend in with the patient’s natural skin tone.
