Body contouring can include one or more procedures to remove excess skin and fat from various areas of the body. Body contouring is ideal for patients whose skin has become loose and flabby after losing a significant amount of weight. In addition to the following procedures, body contouring can also include a tummy tuck. Body contouring may be performed in conjunction with liposuction to help remove additional fat.
What to Expect
Body lift is a surgical procedure in which the entire outer thigh and buttock complex are lifted as one unit. This is a more modern and advanced technique where the incisions are hidden within the bikini lines, as opposed to the more visible area around the buttock crease. Body lift can be performed as an isolated procedure, but is more commonly performed with either abdominoplasty or an inner thigh lift.
Inner Thigh Lift
Sagging skin around the thigh area is usually caused by considerable weight loss. An inner thigh lift removes loose skin and excess fat from the inner thighs.
Upper arm skin can become loose and flabby due to age, gravity or weight loss. An arm lift removes loose skin and excess fat from the upper arm. In turn, this reduces the overall circumference of the upper arm.
