When it comes to body contouring, several procedures allow patients to obtain the look they wish to achieve. Women may be concerned about the shape or size of their breasts, loose skin around their belly, arms, or thighs, or stubborn fat on the abdomen and flanks, hips, and legs. Men may also have concerns about body shape, most often love handles or enlarged breasts (gynecomastia).

The following plastic surgery procedures can produce significant improvement in body shape and contour. For women, most common body sculpting procedures are:

  • breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants, to increase bust size and restore perkiness to breasts
  • breast lift with or without implants, to correct droopiness
  • breast reduction to lessen bulky breasts and diminish back and neck pain caused by overly large breasts
  • labiaplasty to reshape and reduce the labia minora or labia majora
  • liposuction to remove excess fat and restore natural curves around the arms, belly, hips, and thighs
  • tummy tuck to tighten abdominal muscles that have been stretched out from pregnancy and remove loose belly fat
  • arm liftthigh lift and body lift to eliminate excess skin and reshape the upper and lower body

Men may benefit from the following procedures aimed at improving their torso and fix common problem areas:

  • gynecomastia surgery to correct enlarged breasts and remove excess skin
  • liposuction to eliminate double chins, or remove excess fat from around the  flanks and abdomen
  • total body lift to reshape the lower body after significant weight loss
