body contouring

body contouring

The effects of age, gravity, pregnancy and weight can affect our bodies in unpleasant ways.
A full variety of options are available to treat many of the changes you see.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

Is designed to remove skin and fat from the lower abdomen and tighten the tummy muscles. This provides a flatter tummy contour, fewer stretch marks, and a better clothing fit. Discreet incisions are used to access the necessary tissues.

Massive Weight Loss

When skin extends further than an abdominoplasty can correct, a belt lipectomy also removes excess skin from the back and flanks to provide improvements in multiple areas of contour concerns. Excess skin from the arms or upper thighs can also be removed during certain contouring procedures. These procedures are more commonly required after ‘massive weight loss’.


The safest, most advanced techniques are employed to effectively remove a portion of the fat from the abdomen, waist, flanks, thighs, back, arms or under the chin. Re-shaping with liposuction gives a softer, smoother, more youthful appearance without the scars necessary for open surgery. Liposuction does not remove skin or tighten muscles but offers an excellent chance for improvement in contour with very little scarring, and down time.
