Get a Sleeker Look with Body Contouring


Body contouring is a series of surgical procedures to help sculpt your body, and can include liposuction, tummy tuck, or a thigh lift. Body contouring is often performed after significant weight loss, whether from diet and exercise or bariatric surgery. Performed in stages or all at once, body contouring can give you that sculpted look you deserve.

Body Contouring is a catch-all phrase that we use to describe multiple operations for people who have multiple areas on their body that they are concerned about the shape and appearance. This can include Liposuction or sculpting the shape of the body. It can also include Abdominoplasty, or Tummy Tuck, and it can also include multiple procedures such as a Thigh Lift or a Brachioplasty, where we remove extra skin and fat from underneath the arms. Body Contouring surgery is often done after massive weight loss. Either from diet and exercise, or after weight loss surgery, such as Bariatric surgery. Many people, after they've lost a lot of weight, still have extra skin, and in order to improve the contour of the abdomen, or the thighs, or the arms, Body Contouring procedures are performed to give you that final shape and that final body that you can be proud of and be happy with after you've lost weight. Body Contouring operations can be done in stages or they can be done in multiple procedures at the same time. It really depends on how much work you need to get done, and how many different areas of the body you need to address. Consultation for Body Contouring takes about an hour. We would go over pictures of what you might expect. The operations vary from a couple hours to multiple hours depending on, if you're combining two or more procedures at the same time. And, usually, we stage the operation if you need multiple areas addressed at the same time. Additionally, Breast Reduction surgery or Breast Lift surgery, is also done with Body Contouring to address all the areas that have sagged or that have extra skin. And when I address Body Contouring, I try to really listen to the patients and understand what are the areas that are concerning to them, so that I can give them the right operation with the variety of procedures that we can do to address all of the areas.
