When it comes to specific areas of the body, diet and exercise, although important, will not make much of a difference. The following body procedures can help remove excess skin or unwanted pockets of fat, contour the body’s shape, and improve the body’s overall appearance.
Body contouring, or body sculpting, is a medical or surgical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body. It may involve procedures to:
Get rid of extra skin.
Eliminate excess fat.
Reshape or contour the area.
Body contouring does not usually help you lose weight. Instead, it helps shape the body and address specific areas where weight loss isn’t effective or after significant weight loss results in extra skin.
Body contouring can target most areas of the body. Common sites include: Arms, Back, Belly and Flanks (love handles), Buttocks, Neck/Chin and Thighs.
Liposuction removes fat from areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include the abdomen, hips, thighs, neck, arms, back, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Liposuction is also a surgical technique that is used to perform the Brazilian Butt Lift procedure. Liposuction must be performed skillfully, technically precise, and must shape the body with gentle curves and blend into surrounding areas seamlessly.
Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who have fatty deposits. I want to emphasize that liposuction is not a treatment for obesity.
To maintain the safety of the procedure, there is a limit on how much can be done at one time. For proper blending and for natural body contouring, often liposuction 360 is performed. Liposuction 360 involves liposuction of the abdomen, hips, flanks, and back so they naturally blend into each other and the surrounding areas. Liposuction is often combined with fat grafting.
