When you’re looking to improve the contour of your body with cosmetic surgery, you’ll have a wide array of procedures to choose from. Explore a few of the most popular contouring procedures here.
Most often referred to as a tummy tuck, abdominoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your abdomen, as well as tightens abdominal wall muscles. Patients who have tried diet and exercise without results may opt for a tummy tuck to flatten their abdomen. After pregnancy, many women may turn to abdominoplasty to help them regain their pre-pregnancy body.
Liposuction helps contour your body by removing stubborn fat deposits that aren’t diminished with diet and exercise. A small incision is made in the area to be treated. Your plastic surgeon will insert a narrow, hollow-tipped tube (cannula) that will suction out fat deposits. Depending on your body, liposuction can be used in a variety of places over the body, including the back, arms, neck, stomach, thighs, calves, buttocks, hips, and breasts.
Body lift procedures are especially helpful for individuals after extreme weight loss or for mothers that want to reverse the affects of pregnancy on their body. Body lifts remove and tighten skin and remove cellulite and fatty tissue. A body lift can shape and tone the abdominal area, buttocks, thighs, and breasts all in one procedure.
Thigh and Arm Lifts
Thigh and arm lifts are another way to improve the contour of your body. Like a body lift, thigh and arm lifts remove excess skin and tighten loose, hanging skin. Both of these procedures are particularly useful to individuals that have lost a considerable amount of weight and find that their skin is loose over their arms and thighs.
