Body Contouring Procedure Steps
  • Step 1 Anaesthesia
  • Medications are administered for your comfort
    during the surgical procedures. The choices
    include intravenous sedation and general
    anaesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best
    choice for you.

Body Contouring Procedure Steps
  • Step 2 - The incision
  • All body contouring procedures require large
    incisions to remove excess skin. In many cases,
    these incisions may be extensive.
  • Incision length and pattern depend on the amount
    and location of excess skin to be removed, as
    well as personal preference and your doctors
    surgical judgment.

Body Contouring- Body Lift
  • Lower body lift treats sagging buttocks, abdomen,
    waist, hips and outer thighs in one procedure.
  • Incision patterns vary, and may include a
    circumferential incision around the body to
    remove the belt of excess skin and fat.

Body Contouring- Breast Lift
  • The incision patterns for lifting a womans
    sagging breasts will be determined based on the
    amount of excess skin to be removed. These may
    include one or a combination of incisions in a
    circular pattern around the areola, in a line
    extending from the areola to the breast crease,
    and horizontally along the breast crease. A
    breast implant also may be recommended to enhance
    breast shape and size.

Body Contouring- Arm Lift
  • Sagging skin in the upper arms is treated with an
    incision from the underarm area extending along
    the inside or back of the upper arm. Additional
    incisions on the arms may be necessary anywhere
    excess skin has formed sagging pockets.
  • The smoother, tighter contours that result from
    upper arm contouring are apparent almost
    immediately, although initially obscured by
    swelling and bruising.

Body Contouring- Thigh Lift
  • Reshaping of the thighs is achieved through
    incisions in the groin that can extend downward
    to the knee along the inner portion of the thigh.
  • Improving contours of the outer thigh may require
    an incision extending from the groin around the
    hip. Through these incisions your plastic surgeon
    will tighten tissues for a smoother, thigh.
