For many people an ongoing and very demanding concern, often a daily task, is achieving and maintaining a fit physique. We all like to feel and look the best we can, but sometimes diet and exercise simply isn’t enough. In such circumstances Body Contouring may help us achieve this goal.
The term Body Contouring refers to any medical or surgical procedure that changes the shape of part or parts of the body through the removal of fat or skin or both together. It involves resizing and reshaping certain areas so that a person’s overall appearance is more balanced and in proportion. It can also include toning certain areas and improving the appearance of the skin.
In Body Contouring surgery, the most frequently performed procedures are the Tummy Tuck, which has several variations, and also Liposuction of various parts of the body. Other types of Body Contouring include several muscle-enhancing procedures, such as calf, buttock and pectoral implants, abdominal six-pack etching, and there are also Arm Lift and Thigh Lift procedures. Such ‘Lift’ procedures are employed particularly when the skin has lost elasticity due to ageing or dramatic weight loss. Many of the procedures can be performed either in isolation or in conjunction with one another, and also with Liposuction, so as to optimise results.
