Liposuction – The goal is to remove localized fat from different areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, back and arms. It is used to sculpt areas of the body, not to treat obesity or tighten the skin. Patients who undergo liposuction surgery typically have stable body weight.
Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) – This procedure removes loose skin from the lower abdomen, tightens the muscles, and narrow the waistline. Sagging or bulging fat pockets (love handles) may also be removed utilizing liposuction.
Mini-abdominoplasty (Mini tummy tuck) – This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the lower abdomen via a limited scar and is indicated in patients with smaller amounts of excess skin in this area.
Body contouring after massive weight loss – Body contouring involves removal of extra skin and fat as well as repositioning of sagging skin to improve the appearance of different areas of the body, such as the arms, abdomen, breasts, chest, back, buttock and thighs. Men or women who have loose skin after significant weight loss often choose this option.
Butt lift – The goal is to lift and recontour the butt by removing excess skin and fatty tissue. The procedure is often combined with a back lift, thigh lift or tummy tuck. It may also be combined with fat injection to fill out the contour of the butt.
Arm lift – Also called a brachioplasty, the goal is to tighten the skin of the upper arms, and remove fatty tissue beneath the skin. Liposuction is often used in conjunction with this surgical procedure.
