Body Contouring or Sculpting can refer to a number of body shaping plastic surgery procedures or to a complete body makeover.
Upper Arm Lifts, Breast Augmentation, Reduction or Lifts, Liposuction, Tummy Tucks (Abdominoplasty), Buttocks-Thigh Lifts are options that can help restore your body to its youthful past.
According to the annual statistics of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of body contouring procedures performed has dramatically increased over the past five years. Abdominoplasty, Lower Body Lift, Buttock lift experienced a 200% gain while Thigh and Upper Arm Lift experienced a 400% rise. This parallels the increased number of patients that have undergone bariatric weight loss surgery
Body Contouring is particularly helpful in removing excess skin after significant weight loss, whether from diet or surgery. After large weight loss, loose skin remains that can only be removed surgically. The abdomen, with the skin frequently hanging down like a drape hiding the belly button and pubic area, is a major problem as is excess skin of the arms, thighs, breasts, and faces.
