Body contouring surgery comprises a range of aesthetic plastic surgery procedures designed to redefine and improve the appearance of your body’s shape.
Surgical procedures range from removal of fat and/or excess skin to surgical implants and lifts to improve skin tone and definition.
The aesthetic benefits of body contouring surgery will vary depending upon the procedure you choose. You may elect to combine more than one procedure to obtain the best aesthetic and functional result.
Body contouring procedures performed by the doctors in this practice include:
- Lipostructure (Liposuction) – To improve the appearance of legs, buttocks, hips, waist, abdomen, breast, chest, back , neck and other areas by suctioning away localized collections of fat and in some cases, using fat as a contour filler to achieve a cosmetically desirable outcome.
- Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) – To remove excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen and to tighten the laxity of abdominal muscles affected by obesity, pregnancy or weight loss. Sacs from previous surgery can often be removed, improving the shape of the abdomen and hips.
- Thigh, Buttock and Lower Body Lifts – To repair the effects of sagging skin and excess fat in the lower body, restoring a more youthful, healthy appearance.
- Arm Reduction – to remove excess skin and fat from the underside of the arm, resulting in improvement of the shape and contour.
