Body Contouring

After Major Weight Loss

Body contouring following major weight loss improves the shape and tone of your underlying tissue that supports fat and skin and removes excess sagging fat and skin.

What is body contouring?

Surgical body contouring following major weight loss removes excess sagging skin and fat while improving the shape of the underlying support tissue. The result is a better-proportioned appearance with smoother contours.

Dramatic weight loss has many benefits. But after any substantial amount of weight loss due to weight loss surgery and/or lifestyle changes, the skin and tissues often lack the elasticity to conform to the reduced body size.

Body contouring procedures may include

  • Facelift: sagging of the mid-face, jowls and neck
  • Breast lift: sagging, flattened breasts
  • Tummy tuck: apron of excess skin hanging over the abdomen
  • Lower body lifts: sagging of the abdomen, buttocks, inner and outer thighs
  • Medial thigh lift: sagging of the inner thigh
  • Arm lift: sagging of the upper arms

What is a BBL?

Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift surgery (BBL) is a butt augmentation procedure that results in a more prominent, perky and attractive buttocks, sensuous silhouette and hourglass figure. Your own body fat is used to augment the buttocks in the most natural of ways.

Through the process of liposuction, fat from various other areas of the body (such as the abdomen, back, hips and thighs) is removed, slimming those areas and providing a more contoured look. The removed fat is then processed and only the most pure and viable fat is injected into the buttocks. This is also known as a fat transfer. The transfer of fat enhances the size of the buttocks, which is massaged and reshaped to provide a more youthful appearance.
