Body contouring can help give you the body you have been wanting and have you loving the look and feel of your own skin.

Which Areas of My Body Can I Treat with Body Contouring?

Body contouring can treat several areas of the body during a single procedure, including:


The face and neck are often the first areas of the body to show signs of aging. Treating these areas can help give you a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. 


Weight fluctuations and pregnancy often affect the size and appearance of the breasts. Breast procedures can significantly improve the volume and projection of the breasts while also increasing self-confidence. 


Body contouring can target your midsection by removing excess fat and skin to tighten the area and provide improved curves and contours. 

Upper Arms

Improving the contours of the upper arms by eliminating fat and smoothing out the skin allows for better body proportions and beautiful symmetry. 

Inner Thighs

Targeting the inner thighs with body contouring can remove excess fat and skin, enhancing the appearance of your legs and giving you a boost of confidence.

Types of Body Contouring Procedures Performed

While body contouring can target multiple parts of the body, the type of surgery performed depends on the area. Below are the most commonly performed procedures involved in body contouring. 


Over time, the features of the face and neck begin to loosen or sag, contributing to the look of aging. A facelift and a neck lift combination can improve these areas, leaving you with tighter skin and a renewed complexion. 

Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, also referred to as a tummy tuck, removes excess skin and fat around the midsection. Additionally, our doctors can tighten the muscles in the abdomen for long-lasting results. 

Breast Lift

A breast lift procedure removes unnecessary breast skin and tissue that contributes to sagging breasts. The procedure aims to move the breasts higher on the chest wall, returning them to their natural position. A breast lift can also include implants for added volume and shape. 


Liposuction uses suction to break down fat cells and remove them. This procedure can target several areas, including the abdomen, back, and arms. Liposuction can even remove the difficult fat that exercise has no effect on, giving you lasting results.

Upper Arm Lift and Inner Thigh Lift

Arm and thigh lifts aim to remove unwanted skin and fat, especially when lifestyle alone cannot give you the results you desire. The outcome is smoother, tighter arms and thighs. 

The Body Contouring Process Explained

Every surgical journey begins with a consultation. During your consultation, we will thoroughly examine your areas of concern and ask questions regarding your wants and needs. We can then create a customized surgical plan. 

On the day of your procedure, we will mark up the treatment area(s) to create a roadmap during surgery, and you will receive anesthesia to promote comfort. 

The length of your surgery depends on the number and size of the treatment areas, and it can last anywhere from one to six hours. 

Once your procedure is complete, we close the surgical sites and apply dressings and garments before you move to recovery.

Recovery and Aftercare

After surgery, you will spend some time in recovery for monitoring. Body contouring is an outpatient procedure meaning you can go home or to a nearby hotel on the same day. 

You will wear special garments that help minimize swelling and promote lymphatic drainage. We recommend keeping these garments on in the days following your surgery as your body begins to heal. Aftercare depends on the exact procedures you undergo, and we can provide detailed instructions to encourage recovery with as little discomfort as possible. 

Other Considerations

Results from body contouring are potentially long-lasting. However, it is important to note that the body is subject to change with time. Therefore, we encourage a healthy lifestyle, including diet and activity, to maintain your results. 

Body contouring may be a beneficial option if you’re open to exploring ways to feel better in your body and increase your overall self-confidence and self-love.
