The Benefits of Transgender Body Contouring

Achieve a Lean, Toned Physique

Body contouring can remove fat and loose skin to sculpt your figure into a leaner, toned physique that aligns more closely with your gender identity. Working with board-certified plastic surgeons, you can customize the right plan to achieve your desired results, sculpt your physique, and feel more confident in your own skin.

Reduce Excess Fat

Excess fat accumulates around the hips, thighs, stomach, and chest. When you have excess fat in specific areas, it can create a figure that does not align with your gender identity. Body contouring treatment can remove this unwanted fat and give you renewed confidence.

Male to Female (MTF) Body Contouring Procedures

Upper Body

MTF Top Surgery

Also known as transgender breast augmentation, MTF top surgery uses either implants or fat transfer to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. However you identify, MTF top surgery can help you achieve a full, round breast shape.

Arm Lift Surgery

Arm lift surgery removes excess loose skin from the arms to create a more toned physique. This procedure can make thicker arms slimmer and more feminine in appearance.


Tummy Tuck

Tummy tucks are a popular option for transgender body contouring, allowing you to shape and contour your tummy area by removing excess fat and skin. This procedure can create a smooth, flat stomach with improved curves and definition throughout the abdominal area.


Liposuction removes excess fat cells from targeted areas to create a more sculpted appearance. It can be customized to your body and goals, helping you achieve the look you want while maintaining your identity. 

Lower Body

Buttock Augmentation

Buttock augmentation uses harvested fat to increase the size of your buttocks and round it out to create an hourglass figure. This procedure helps reshape the area by using fat grafts or other techniques to build up the buttock area and help you achieve an hourglass figure.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift involves the removal of excess fat from the thighs and tightening the skin to improve contour. The results are long-lasting and can help you achieve a slimmer-looking figure, reduce cellulite, and attain smoother skin.

Female to Male (FTM) Body Contouring Procedures

Upper Body

FTM Top Surgery

FTM top surgery helps create a masculine body shape by removing breast tissue and unwanted fat and reshaping chest contours. The results of this surgery can be immediate and long-term, providing an improved fit when wearing clothing and swimwear. In addition to the physical benefits, FTM top surgery may result in increased self-confidence and a boost in self-esteem.

Arm Lift

An arm lift removes excess skin and fat from the arms to create sleek contours and smooth lines. The result is muscular arms with a toned appearance. In addition to the physical benefits, an arm lift can also have psychological benefits such as improved self-confidence and body acceptance. 


Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery removes loose skin from the midsection and enhances the appearance of your abdominal muscles. This procedure can create a more masculine physique by removing excess skin around the abdomen.


Liposuction is an effective body contouring procedure to achieve a more masculine silhouette. It involves removing excess fat from stubborn areas, such as the chest, abdomen, and back. Liposuction surgery can result in improved contours in these areas and an overall balance to your physique.

Lower Body

Lower Body Lift

A lower body lift is an effective and popular transgender body contouring procedure to create a more masculine silhouette. This method removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, flanks, and thighs, resulting in a slimmer waistline and an overall balanced look.

The Body Contouring Process Explained

At Vegas Plastic Surgery Institute, we offer safe, effective treatments tailored to your individual needs. After a consultation, our doctors will work with you to plan the best procedures to meet your desired results. Once they finalize your treatment plan, our surgeons will take the utmost care and precision to give you a natural-looking physique that will help you feel comfortable in your own skin. 

Our team will provide additional support and resources post-surgery to help you on your journey.

Recovery and Aftercare

The recovery process is slightly different for each body contouring procedure. With most procedures, you will go home with sutures in place wherever we make incisions, and we typically remove these sutures about one week after your procedure. 

Procedures like top surgery and tummy tucks require wearing a compression garment for added support around the surgical site.

You should avoid strenuous exercise and intense physical activity for four to six weeks after your body contouring procedures. Before returning to exercise and other physical activities, you should also wait for our team to clear you.

Other Considerations

How Long Do the Results Last?

Body contouring will permanently remove fat or skin from certain areas of your body. However, new fat cells can develop. To maintain your results, follow a well-rounded nutrition plan and exercise routine. 

Aging can also cause the skin to sag downward from natural collagen and elastin loss. Fortunately, there are skin tightening treatments to resolve minor sagging. You can also repeat or touch up your body contouring procedure to restore your original results.

Is It Really Worth It?

Body contouring may be the investment you need to feel like the best version of yourself. Many of our patients benefit enormously from personalized treatment that meets their unique needs and achieves a body that aligns more closely with their gender identity.
