Body surgery or body contouring surgery describes different techniques our plastic surgeons use to sculpt and reshape any area of the body. Our body surgery procedures are designed to eliminate excess fat and skin, help you regain your pre-pregnancy body, and correct/alter any part of your body that needs improvement.
Weight loss and the effects of aging can cause the skin and ligaments of your upper arms to droop. Lifting weights often is not enough to eliminate the drooping, especially if there is excess skin.
A body lift is a comprehensive procedure to remove excess skin and fat from the arms, thighs, abdomen, groin, and buttocks. This surgery can improve the tone and shape of many areas of your body for an overall smoother and more youthful look.
Enlarged, lengthened, or uneven inner labia can occur on one or both sides. This irregularity can cause irritation, discomfort while sitting, and problems with hygiene. Genital labial reduction (or labiaplasty) is a type of vaginal plastic surgery that can eliminate these and other problems caused by enlarged or lengthened labia.
Time, gravity, and weight loss can cause the skin of the inner and outer thighs to lose tone and sag. Fat also can collect in the thighs, especially as men and women age.
Liposuction (lipoplasty) is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States. Because it removes unwanted fat from specific areas, liposuction can improve the contours of your body, including your neck, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, and calves.
Aging, heredity, and weight loss can cause the skin on the abdomen, waist, back, buttocks, and thighs to sag. If you have lost a significant amount of weight, you may have folds of skin that chafe and are unattractive. Even if you have lost a modest amount of weight, you may have some sagging skin in your buttocks, hips, and thighs.
People who have lost a significant amount of weight or have had bariatric surgery for weight loss are the fastest growing group of plastic surgery patients. Significant weight loss can cause skin to sag severely and also cause rashes, infections, and hygiene issues.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen, while also tightening the abdominal muscles. The procedure can dramatically reduce a protruding abdomen and help your clothes fit better.
