Here are some body contouring procedures:


This method removes extra skin and fat from the tummy part, flattens the stomach, defines the waist and tightens the muscles. It’s performed on an outpatient basis, and the patient must follow the physician’s instructions. Post surgery, he needs to avoid strenuous activity for 1 to 2 weeks.

Body Lift

This treatment is a range of separate procedures focusing on various parts of the body. No matter, it’s breast lift, arm lift, thigh lift or any other procedure, the cosmetic surgeon eradicates extra fat and skin, improving and tightening the problematic areas of the body to give a patient’s body a firmer and younger appearance. This treatment is intended for people who have gone through a massive weight loss, and they are left with poor body shape, fat pockets, and loose skin.

Breast Lift

With growing age, breastfeeding or excess weight loss, breasts start getting flat or sag. This procedure tightens the breasts and makes them lifted, young and attractive.

Arm Lift

Arm lift tightens the loose skin, reshapes the upper arms, removes the extra skin and fat and enhances the look under the arm. Commonly, liposuction is performed jointly with an arm lift to attain the most positive and best results.

Buttock Enhancement

This method increases the natural shape and size of the rear by lifting buttocks that have sagged or flattened with time.  Buttock contouring is commonly done with the help of the fat injection. Fat is accumulated from various parts of the body where it’s not needed and injected into the buttocks and make them look attractive. In many cases, stable silicone implants are also used for this purpose.

Face and Neck Lift

Ageing and weight loss can give a saggy or drooping appearance to your face and neck. In this procedure, a complete facelift is performed to tighten the facial skin, extra fatty deposits are eradicated, and sags are lifted, and fine lines are ironed out, helping the face to look younger and brighter. This procedure is considered as the best wrinkle reduction treatment. In a neck lift treatment, extra skin is removed around the neck area and beneath the chin.

Thigh Lift

This procedure is helpful in reshaping the legs. It’s commonly used for the patient who has gone through a massive weight loss. The procedure can address the issues in the inner and outer thigh, or both.
