Slim Your Shape with Body Contouring
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck involves removing fat and excess tissue from the abdominal area to create firmer, flatter, more attractive contours. A tummy tuck is often combined with liposuction for enhanced results, especially for patients who have undergone substantial weight loss.
Liposuction is a relatively simple procedure that can slim and reshape the body by removing stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle; it is most effective for patients who are close to their ideal body weight with firm skin and good muscle tone.
Genetics and aging can sometimes trump the most diligent efforts to stay fit. An arm lift tightens loose skin in the upper arm for a leaner, more youthful look. Minor cases can often be treated with a liposuction, but patients with excess sagging skin may require an arm lift to correct the issue.
A thigh lift is usually performed in conjunction with other cosmetic “lift” procedures, smoothing lower body contours of the lower body to achieve balance. While liposuction can remove unwanted skin and fat, a thigh lift can even the appearance of skin on the thigh with low elasticity.
Fat grafting, or fat transfer, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that utilizes the patient's own body fat to refine and contour another treatment area. Fat grafting can be utilized after breast reconstruction, for a butt lift, and other body contouring procedures.
