About Body Contouring
The term "body contouring" is one that is regularly used in the plastic surgery industry to describe a series of procedures that can help to create a more curvaceous figure.

The options for redefining and rejuvenating your physique are endless.
"My Husband recently had a surf accident that broke his Jaw. Dr. Schoemann was our saving grace. He made him self available that night in the ER to meet with us and discuss the surgery. He was able to get surgery done the next day. He was available by phone to answer any questions prior to surgery. He did an amazing job on the surgery and gave us such piece of mind putting us at ease through out the whole process. Every follow up visit has been incredible with not only with amazing care but his office is so friendly and on-time. We never feel rushed we have time to think and ask questions. We feel so fortunate to have had him in our time of emergency. We wanted to let everyone how incredible he is with face and jaw repair."- P.S. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2018

You may be a great 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 hips, flanks, neck, abdomen, and lower back are all areas where fat can collect, creating unwanted bulges. Good candidates for body contouring are southern CA men and women who maintain a healthy weight and wish for a tighter, more sculpted shape.
During your consultation, Dr. Schoemann will design a body contouring treatment plan for you. This could consist of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, like liposuction, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and breast lift or augmentation usually require general anesthesia. The goal during each of the surgical treatments is to create very small incisions that can be concealed by undergarments and to minimize undesired fat and extra skin, revealing a smoother, thinner body. With most body contouring procedures, Dr. Schoemann will begin with the abdomen but it could change depending on the patient’s body. He will remove excess skin from the stomach area and then move on to tighten the abdominal wall, to reveal a flatter tummy. After the entire abdomen area is complete, Dr. Schoemann will move on to the next desired treatment area, most commonly the sides or back. When working on the back area, Dr. Schoemann will also lift the buttocks.
What to Expect
Following the surgical portion of your body contouring treatment plan, you will be sent home to recover. As surgical body contouring procedures can be aggressive on the body, you may be required to remain in the hospital for observation for a few days following surgery. It is common for patients to combine several surgical procedures on multiple body parts, which could lengthen their recovery period. Nonsurgical body contouring procedures do not typically require a recovery period. Body contouring is designed to reshape the body, so whether you choose surgical or nonsurgical procedures or some of each, you will notice a tighter, thinner body and a sexier figure.
