Body Contouring / Lipectomy

Body Contouring Surgery / Lipectomy  

Body contouring surgery includes many types of different body sculpting techniques used by plastic surgeons to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body sculpting surgery, patients can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. Read on to learn more about the different types of body contouring plastic surgery procedures currently available.  Body contouring can improve the shape and proportion of your body, enhancing your appearance and boosting your self-confidence. Plastic surgeons employ a variety of body sculpting techniques to help their patients achieve lean, toned figures; including liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift surgery.    

Arms lift (Brachioplasty)

          Brachioplasty, commonly referred to as an arm lift, is a procedure used to remove excess skin in the upper arm. Skin commonly loses its elasticity throughout the arms as a result of natural aging or rapid weight loss. Arm lift surgery tightens and contouring the upper arms can restore a youthful contour. Patients with excess fat on their arms may elect to have liposuction performed in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures for even more dramatic results. Many patients, who had previously been fearful of wearing revealing clothing or of raising their arms over their heads, report an increase in self-confidence after the procedure  


Body Lift

          Patients with extensive amounts of excess or hanging skin in multiple areas of the body may benefit from a more inclusive and larger-scale body lift procedure. The extensive body lift procedures can target the entire body (a total body lift) or specific regions (upper, mid, or lower body lifts). Total body lifting is useful in patients who have lost skin elasticity all over their bodies. Although full-body lift surgery is a complex surgery requiring an extended period of recovery, doctors are often able to achieve the best overall aesthetic results with this treatment.     

Butt Implants:

          Buttock augmentation involves the insertion of butt implants to enhance the shape, size, and appearance of the rear end. Butt implants can be used to add curves and definition to the buttocks, in women and men alike. Some butt implant patients feel their buttocks lack shape, while others want to have a more sensuous rear end by making it fuller or larger. 

Buttocks lift surgery:

          Buttock lift surgery, also called "Brazilian butt lift surgery," is an increasingly common plastic surgery technique intended to firm and enhance a patient's rear end. Like other body lifts, butt lift surgery is useful for removing excess skin while toning and tightening the remaining skin. In the Brazilian butt lift, a patient's butt is enhanced using purified fat cells from elsewhere in the body. Patients achieve a rounder, fuller, firmer buttock using their own tissue and without the need for butt implants. Butt lift surgery has been shown to be both safe and effective while providing patients with long-lasting, beautiful results. Many butts lift patients report increased self-confidence after the procedure.   

Calf Implants:

          Calf augmentation through the insertion of implants is an excellent option for patients who are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their calf muscles. By and large, men and women choose to undergo calf augmentation for many different reasons. Men more often than not want to emphasize bulk and muscle while women typically seek balance and proportionality    


          Liposuction is the most popular method of body contouring surgery because it allows the surgeon to re-sculpt specific areas of the body. Using only a few tiny incisions, your surgeon can target stubborn fat deposits and permanently remove fat cells from the area. There are many different methods of liposuction. You and your surgeon will discuss which technique is right for you.  

Thigh Lift:

          Thighplasty, or thigh lift surgery is a popular cosmetic surgery option for patients seeking firmer, more attractive upper legs. Like other area-specific body lifts, Thighplasty helps tone and tighten excess, loose, or hanging skin. There are several different types of thigh lift procedures that may be performed, depending on the patient's needs and goals. Surgeons can use a bilateral, medial, or inner thigh lift to safely remove excess skin. Thigh lift surgery is commonly performed in conjunction with liposuction surgery for even better results.     

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty):

          The tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a unique body sculpting surgery that combines the removal of excess skin and fat from the midsection with the surgical tightening of the abdominal muscles. Abdominoplasty is typically offered as an individual procedure, but may also be performed during full-body lift surgery.

          Areas of the body with unwanted fat, excess skin and cellulite can be effectively treated with a variety of surgical body sculpting techniques and cellulite reduction treatment options. For those who struggle with a combination of excess skin and fat, removal through surgery is an excellent choice. Read on to learn more about plastic surgery procedures and skin treatments that can help tone, slim, and smooth your figure.

Excess Skin:

          Whether excess skin is the result of pregnancy, dramatic weight loss, or the aging process, excess skin and fat removal surgery are specifically designed to target your problem areas. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a surgical procedure in which excess skin and fat are removed from the midsection and the underlying abdominal muscles are tightened to slenderize the waistline. Other, more extensive procedures, such as full-body lift and lower body lift, trim excess skin and fat along the thighs, hips, buttocks, and waist. More localized lift procedures such as an arm lift, thigh lift, butt lift, and breast lift are less intensive procedures that focus on excess skin and fat removal from one specific area of the body.

What are the benefits of body contouring?

Body contouring can provide a number of benefits, including:

  1. Improved body shape and contour: Body contouring procedures can help to reshape and sculpt the body, giving it a more toned and defined appearance.
  2. Increased confidence: Many individuals who undergo body contouring report an increase in self-confidence and self-esteem as a result of their improved body shape.
  3. Removal of excess fat and skin: Body contouring procedures can help to remove excess fat and skin from specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, and arms. This can help to improve the overall appearance of the body and can also help to reduce the risk of certain health conditions associated with excess fat, such as diabetes and heart disease.
  4. Clothes fit better: After contouring, clothes may fit better and look more flattering on the individual, as the shape of the body is improved.

Improved posture: Body contouring procedures can help to improve posture by tightening and strengthening the underlying muscles. This can help to reduce pain and discomfort in the back, neck, and shoulders.

What is body contouring and what does it mean?

          Body contouring refers to a group of cosmetic procedures that aim to reshape and sculpt the body. These procedures can be used to target specific areas of the body, such as the stomach, thighs, arms, and buttocks, and are designed to remove excess fat, tighten loose skin, and enhance the shape of the body.

          Body contouring procedures are typically performed by plastic surgeons and can be done on an outpatient basis. Recovery times vary depending on the procedure performed, and patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

          It's important to note that body contouring procedures are not a substitute for weight loss and are not recommended for individuals who are significantly overweight or obese. It's also important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to ensure that you are a good candidate for the procedure and that you have realistic expectations of the results.
