Body contouring involves the use of procedures like abdominoplasties, liposuction, and laser lipo procedures that remove excess fat and soft tissue. Through this process, the doctor can then sculpt or contour the surface areas of the body to provide the patient with a thinner, firmer, more solid appearance. Body contouring procedures are often used after a person has lost an excessive amount of weight. During the procedure, folds of excess skin are excised providing the patient a more natural looking abdomen. Theses procedures are also used on the legs and the arms. For individuals who have otherwise reached their weight loss goals, body contouring can eliminate fat from hard to reach areas like the thighs, arms, and hips.
A Brazilian Butt Lift is a procedure that enhances the appearance of a woman's butt, making it appear rounder and more robust. The lift is completed by using liposuction to remove fatty deposits from other areas of a woman's body and placing it within the cheeks of the woman's rear end. This both lifts and rounds the cheeks making them appear more prominent. As a woman ages, the butt cheeks may begin to sag or droop, much like the breasts and the cheeks of the face. A Brazilian Butt Lift restores the proper form and shape to the butt while elevating it to a more natural height. During the procedure, the doctor will shape the butt so that it accentuates other areas of the body creating a more balanced and symmetrical look.
Body contouring uses several techniques to address various areas of the body. For the arms, thighs, hips, and other hard to reach area, procedures like SculpSure® are used to remove excess fat and define the areas. Abdominoplasty procedures are used to eliminate any unwanted tissues, including fat, excess skin and soft tissues throughout the abdominal areas. Liposuction is also used to eliminate fatty deposits, but this is primarily used on larger areas of the body, such as the outer thighs, abdomen, and rear end. Body contouring procedures can be used together or separately to enhance and tone a patient's body, especially in many areas that are hard to reach and that remain untouched by exercise and physical activity.
