CO2RE

Body contouring surgery reshapes the body through the removal of excess fat and skin. Sometimes, this procedure also involves the surgical correction of separated muscles. At Perfection Plastic Surgery and Skin Care, board-certified plastic surgeon Peter Kay takes a personalized approach to body contouring surgery. Therefore, he will work closely with you to identify your areas of concern and put together an individualized surgical plan that will help you achieve the results you desire.

Reasons for Body Contouring Surgery

Body contouring surgery can be appropriate for patients who have uneven or unnatural-looking fat distribution. It’s a way to shape and streamline the body to produce an aesthetically pleasing silhouette. Many patients opt for body contouring surgery after giving birth. If this is the case for you, it’s best to achieve your post-baby weight loss goals before having the surgery

It’s important to note that body contouring surgery is not intended as a primary weight loss method, although it can involve the removal of unwanted fat. Instead, the focus of the treatment is to reshape the body. Body contouring surgery is often helpful for patients who have achieved significant weight loss through bariatric surgery or other means. These patients often struggle with excessive, loose skin that serves as a constant reminder of their former weight. Cosmetic surgery can help these patients restore their self-confidence

FAQs

CO2RE is a newer generation of laser resurfacing treatment that can address many of the same problems as fractional laser therapy, but with less downtime and less discomfort in the treatment process. All fractional laser treatments use a fractioned pattern that leaves small bridges of untouched skin, so that the procedure is a safe, outpatient treatment that does not require significant healing time

Many patients ask about Halo laser resurfacing, which delivers ablative and non-ablative wavelengths of light to microscopic treatment areas of the skin. CO2RE does the same thing, but under a different name. Both treatments are highly effective at reducing sun spots, wrinkles, discoloration, rough skin texture, acne scars, and traumatic scars.
CO2RE can work for a wide range of patients, because it has adjustable wavelengths to vary the intensity of treatment. So, it can give you mild rejuvenation in your late 30s as you may start to see crow’s feet and laugh lines settle in, or it may be a more intensive treatment for more advanced signs of aging, scarring, and sun damage.
This procedure is often effective after just one treatment, but the full results will develop gradually. You will need to stay out of the sun for a few days after treatment and wear sunscreen whenever you do leave the house. There may be some light peeling, redness, and tenderness in the skin, which are natural signs of healing. These effects will subside after about 7-10 days, and you can likely continue your daily routine right away with just minor adjustments to your skin care. A short course of antibiotics may also be recommended to reduce the risk of infection. The results are as permanent as those from surgical procedures, but you will see the continued signs of aging develop as you get older.
