Body contouring procedures create balance while streamlining your silhouette. They can be combined to tackle multiple problem areas at a time and include the popular Mommy Makeover and GlamMa Makeover procedures.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)
Laser Assisted Liposuction (SmartLipo)
Contouring After Massive Weight Loss
Brazilian Butt Lift
Some women feel that their buttocks is too flat and would like it to be fuller and rounder. These same women often have unwanted extra fat in their lower back, hips, and thighs. Liposuctioning fat from these areas and transferring it to accentuate the buttocks can improve the contours of all of these areas for a very dramatic effect. This procedure is often referred to as a “Brazilian Butt Lift.”
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take their toll on a woman’s body. A Mommy Makeover combine a tummy tuck and breast lift and/or augmentation, along with possible liposuction, to get a mother back to her pre-baby body.
Moms aren’t the only ones who can sometimes use a little upgrade! The GlamMa Makeover combines a tummy tuck, breast lift and/or augmentation, along with possible liposuction, to keep every GlamMa looking and feeling her best.
Breast Implants Removal, Replacement, And/Or Reshaping
If your augmented breasts have lost their original beautiful appearance and natural feel, it may be time to consider Removal, Replacement and/or Reshaping.
