WHAT ARE BODY SHAPING OPERATIONS?
Body sculpting surgeries or body contouring procedures are surgical procedures. They are designed to improve the appearance and proportions of different areas of the body. It is important to recognize that these body contouring surgeries are not essentially weight loss surgeries.
There are different body contouring surgeries, each targeting specific areas or concerns. These cosmetic or plastic surgeries aim to remove excess fat, skin, and tissue and tone and tone the body. The most common types of body contouring surgery are as follows:
Liposuction: Liposuction can improve the body’s contour and proportions by removing stubborn fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty): A tummy tuck tightens the sagging skin on the abdomen. It can help create a flatter and more toned look. The operation is particularly suitable for people who have experienced significant weight loss or pregnancy.
Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL): In the BBL procedure, fat is transferred from one area of the body to the buttocks. The fat donor area is usually the abdomen or thighs. This improves the size and shape of the buttocks while improving overall body proportions.
Arm lift (brachioplasty): The arm lift can also be considered a part of the body lift. It is commonly performed on individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or sagging extra skin due to aging.
Thigh lift: A thigh lift removes excess skin and fat on the inner or outer thighs. It creates a smoother and more toned look. This procedure is often used by people who have experienced significant weight loss or who have sagging skin due to age.
Gynecomastia Surgery: This procedure treats enlarged breasts in men. It removes excess glandular tissue, fat and skin resulting in a flatter and more masculine breast contour.
It is important to consult a plastic surgeon. The surgeon will help determine which body contouring surgeries will meet your specific needs and goals. The surgeon will assess your health, past medical records, and goals. This allows them to create a customized treatment plan that meets your expectations.
