 Body contouringIf you have excess fat deposits that you are struggling to get rid of, or you have recently lost a lot of weight, you may be interested in body contouring. This type of treatment can effectively address several areas of concern while improving your body’s contour to create a more youthful appearance. You may be wondering if body contouring is right for you. It is important to understand the available options and how they can help transform your look.

Body Contouring Procedures

Body contouring is not just one surgery. It is a group of different procedures that your doctor can perform either individually or together. The main surgical body contouring procedures include:

  • Liposuction: Liposuction is a treatment to vacuum pockets of unwanted fat out of your body through very small incisions. The abdomen, thighs, back, and upper arms are some of the most popular areas for liposuction, but it is effective for nearly any area of the body with extra fat.
  • Tummy tuck: A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, focuses on the abdomen below the navel. This surgery removes extra fat, usually through liposuction. An abdominoplasty can also remove extra skin. Often, doctors tighten the abdominal muscles during a tummy tuck as well.
  • Butt lift: A butt lift removes extra fat and skin in the buttocks. Your doctor repositions and secures the remaining skin to provide an overall lift and perkier buttocks.
  • Mommy makeover: A mommy makeover is a combination of procedures designed to restore your body following pregnancy and childbirth. Many women have liposuction, a tummy tuck, a butt lift, and other procedures, like a breast lift, during a mommy makeover.
