Body Contouring Surgery

Body contouring surgery is generally performed after weigh loss to give enhanced contour to the body by removing sagging, loose and excess skin. But body contouring surgery includes any such procedures that enhance the body contour like arm lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck, buttock lift, etc.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck, technically known as an abdominoplasty, is an invasive plastic surgery procedure to reshape and firm the abdomen. It involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the middle and lower abdomen in order to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall.


An umbilicoplasty (belly button surgery) is a simple plastic surgery procedure performed to achieve a beautiful belly button. It is a quick and relatively painless procedure that many women (and men) are resorting to in order to give themselves a more attractive looking midriff.

Lower Body Contouring

Lower body contouring procedures include dry, wet, superwet and ultrasound liposuction. Though previously it was an invasive and risky, superwet and ultrasound procedures have made it less painful.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift (thighplasty) procedures are divided into two main types viz., inner thigh lift and medial thigh lift. Thigh lift is an invasive surgical procedure that requires many incisions, general anesthesia and about two months in recovery time. It is a major look enhancement procedure for lower body.

Arm Lift

There is not much else besides plastic surgery that can be employed to combat what are known as “batwings.” Batwings are the casual term used to describe sagging upper arm skin due to weight loss. The rest of your body may look great but there is no way to tone this part of the body after weight loss. The type of plastic surgery that is used to correct this type of disfigurement is known as an arm lift, arm reduction surgery or brachiaplasty.

Calf Augmentation

Generally calf augmentation is achieved through calf implants. Calf implants are the best method to gain muscular and shapely calves. This procedure involves silicone implants beneath the skin and over the muscles of the calf in order to augment its appearance.

Buttock Implants

Buttock implants (silicone buttock implants) are considered to be a purely cosmetic plastic surgery whose main intent is to make the posterior look higher and more well rounded. However it can be part of reconstructive surgery for individuals who have lost part of their buttocks due to injury or some kind of trauma.

Buttock Lift

A buttock lift or butt lift is purely a cosmetic plastic surgery that is more concerned with improving the tone and tautness of the skin rather than adding structure or volume to the backside. Butt lift is an invasive procedure that requires several incisions, general anesthesia and about four weeks for recovery.
