Body Contouring Surgery

Body Lift Plastic Surgery

Following massive weight loss, you feel healthier and more confident and can’t wait to finally show off your thinner frame, however, excess skin may be preventing you from doing so. Thankfully, body contouring surgery in Itasca with plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Ashpole can get you looking great on the outside to match what you feel on the inside. Also known as a body lift, Dr. Ashpole customizes body contouring surgery to the individual needs and desired results of each patient.


Body contouring surgery can address excess loose and sagging skin and irregular contours of the:
  • Tummy or abdominal area
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Groin area
  • Upper arms
Body contouring surgery can improve the shape and tone of the underlying tissue that supports fat and skin. Excess skin is removed and dimpled, irregular skin can be improved. Body lifts are not intended strictly for the removal of excess fat. As each patient has a different amount of skin to be removed as well as different body proportions, the procedures Dr. Ashpole performs for body contouring vary. At your consultation, he will discuss with you your desired results and recommend a surgical plan to help achieve them. Body contouring surgery is appropriate for people with massive weight loss that cannot get rid of excess skin. For women who considering future pregnancies, it may be preferable to postpone abdominal body lift (tummy tuck) since pregnancy following the procedure may diminish results. Body contouring surgery may be performed on adults of any age who have realistic goals in mind for improvement of their body contour.


Following surgery, Dr. Ashpole will prescribe medication to help alleviate post-operative swelling and discomfort. Your total recovery may take up to six weeks, during which time you will be expected to wear the compression garment issued to you after surgery. This will help control swelling as well as maintain your new body shape as you heal. Though the scars from your surgery will fade over time, they may not disappear completely. However, most patients accept this as a welcome trade-off to the loose, hanging skin that was once around their lower body. Body Contouring Surgery Body Contouring Surgery in Chicago

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is at risk for developing varicose veins?

    Women naturally have a higher chance of developing varicose veins, especially women who are pregnant. However, it is important to keep in mind that roughly 42 percent of men experience varicose veins by the time they turn 60. Family history is one of the biggest factors that determine whether or not you will develop varicose veins.

    If you don’t get your varicose veins removed, they may result in skin sores, skin ulcers, blood clots or even deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is best to get your veins treated as soon as possible to reduce your risk of developing complications down the road.

    There is a misconception that when Botox is administered, it results in a frozen or numb facial appearance. In simpler terms, patients may feel like they will no longer be able to make facial expressions. This is why it is important to find a qualified surgeon with years of experience administering Botox, as they will be able to judge how much Botox you need and help judge the size of your muscles.

    Botox is extremely effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles! Whether you have forehead lines that you don’t like or you want to get rid of frown lines or crow’s feet, the highly purified toxins in Botox can help erase them!

    The side effects of Botox in Itasca are typically mild and short-lived. You can expect slight bruising, and, in one to five percent of cases, Botox may cause mild droopiness of the eyelid or the eyebrow. This usually goes away within two weeks.

    Though it’s often the best option if your condition has progressed, you can also take measures to avoid varicose and spider veins besides vein treatment. To reduce your chances of developing unsightly veins, it’s important to exercise, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, maintain a healthy weight, and/or use compression stockings.
