What is Body Contouring?
Often after weight loss or pregnancy, our patients share that they have a significant amount of excess, loose skin and diet and exercise are no longer effectively addressing areas of concern. Body contouring offers patients a wide variety of effective treatments to address almost any area of the body where you desire improvement including the stomach, arms, thighs, hips and breasts. There are surgical and non-surgical options and some procedures can be combined to offer maximum results.
Our body contouring procedures include:
A surgical procedure that removes fat deposits to shape most areas of the body often in the areas of the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips or lower back.
Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)
A surgical procedure that addressed the excess skin of the upper arms to improve not only the shape but help ensure the upper arms are proportional to the rest of the body resulting in a natural look.
A surgical procedure to help address the excess skin hanging over the abdomen. Often combined with liposuction, tummy tucks can achieve a flatter, more toned midsection for men and women.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A surgical procedure designed to help tighten the breast tissue and skin and elevate the breasts, providing a more youthful appearance.
Breast Reduction (Women and Men)
A surgical procedure to reduce excess breast tissue and provide a breasts or chest that is in balance with the rest of the body and provide a more shapely or sculpted chest.
A surgical procedure designed to address the excess or sagging skin of the inner and outer thighs to enhance the contour of the thighs.
A non-surgical procedure that involves several injection sessions to destroy the fat cells in the chin and create a slender looking neck and face.
Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?
The best candidates for body contouring procedures are adults who are at a stable weight, are physically and psychologically healthy and are nonsmokers.
