The Skinny on Body Contouring

 

 

What it is: Body contouring is changing the shape of your body, which could include your abdomen, breasts, back, flanks, arms and legs.

What it isn't: A way to lose lots of weight. (If you want to lose a significant amount of weight, a diet and exercise plan is the place to start.) 

Procedures that are part of this group: Breast augmentation, breast lift, breast combination (augmentation plus lift), abdominoplasty, SmartLipo, traditional liposuction, and fat transplant in the buttocks (also known as Brazilian butt lift).

Why it's great: Some changes to your body shape can be made through diet and exercise -- however, there are plenty that can't. For example, no workout is going to restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy perk, and even hours in the gym can fail to remove stubborn fat from your torso or limbs. 

Through a customized approach with the proper procedures, we can help give you the look you want. Because a combination of procedures is often used, the results can be truly dramatic.

Who it's for: Anyone who would like a more balanced or streamlined silhouette.
