Body Contouring

Plastic surgery offers people the opportunity to enhance parts of their body, or to restore their body to a more healthy and attractive state. Taking advantage of cosmetic surgery can help improve your self-confidence and body image. Body contouring refers to the surgical procedures that improve the appearance of skin and tissue after major weight loss.

Our specialties:

Our plastic surgeons offer body contouring procedures including:

  • Arm Lift: An arm lift firms and reshapes the upper arm from the elbow to the shoulder. An arm lift removes sagging skin and fat.
  • Breast Augmentation: Many women opt to have breast augmentation surgery in order to change the shape of their breasts or increase their fullness. For women who have had children or lost a great deal of weight, breast enhancement can restore lost volume.
  • Breast Lift: A breast lift raises the breasts by removing excess skin, tightening the tissue and moving the nipples up.
  • Breast Reduction: Breast reduction can help alleviate neck strain, headaches, aching shoulders, low back pain, chronic infections under the breast fold, or reshape your breasts to make them more pleasing to you.
  • Inner Thigh Lift: For people who have lost a lot of weight or those who have sagging skin on their thighs because of aging, a thigh lift offers a more toned and taut appearance.
  • Liposuction: A process that removes excess fat deposits. 
  • Lower Body Lift: A lower body lift combines a tummy tuck with a thigh lift and buttock lift. People who have lost a lot of weight, often through bariatric surgery, sometimes want to have a lower body lift to remove excess sagging skin.
  • Scar Revisions: Scar treatment using plastic surgery techniques including topical treatments, injectable treatments or surface treatments.
  • Tummy Tuck: A tummy tuck flattens your abdomen by removing excess fat and skin from the abdominal area and tightening the muscles.
