Are you considering sculpting and re-shaping your body? Body contouring is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery and can help create the silhouette you’re longing for. Whether you wish to slim down particular areas, get rid of fatty pockets, or enhance the definition in various regions, there are different accessible options for all. Let’s explore how body contouring can help turn your vision into reality.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that can help you achieve the body of your dreams. It removes stubborn fat from the abdomen, hips, buttocks, flanks, arms, and legs to create a more attractive shape. With liposuction, you don’t have to go through endless diets or workouts; it helps eliminate fatty deposits unaffected by healthy eating habits or exercise routines.

Tumescent Liposuction

Tumescent liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a saline solution to literally “tumesce,” or expand, the fat cells before they are removed. Tumescent liposuction is typically chosen in areas with a large amount of stubborn fat to be removed, such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs. It can also be used in areas with loose skin where traditional liposuction would not provide optimal results.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction is a modern technique that uses a motorized cannula to quickly and efficiently remove fat deposits. This technique is usually chosen when large amounts of fat are removed from the abdomen, hips, and thighs. Power-Assisted Liposuction seeks to minimize discomfort during the procedure by decreasing the time the cannula is in contact with the fat.

Ultrasonic Liposuction

Ultrasonic liposuction is a body-contouring procedure that uses focused sound waves to break down and liquefy fat cells. This technique requires specialized equipment and offers advantages over traditional liposuction, including faster fat removal and more precise body sculpting.


SmartLipo is a minimally-invasive body contouring technique that uses “laser lipolysis” to destroy fat cells and tighten the skin. The small surgical wand known as a cannula is used to direct laser energy at unwanted fatty deposits, breaking down the fat cells and liquefying them.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck will be your go-to solution to redefine and strengthen your abdominal region. This surgical procedure can help reduce stretched skin, fatty bulges, and stretch marks that have emerged due to pregnancy or drastic weight loss.

Full Tummy Tuck

A full tummy tuck surgery is a highly effective way to eliminate excess fat and skin and tighten the abdominal muscles. Usually, patients undergo this procedure when their abdomen has been stretched or separated due to either pregnancy or weight loss. The result? An aesthetically pleasing stomach with an improved definition that you’ve wanted to achieve.

Endoscopic Tummy Tuck

If you need to reduce and tighten your abdominal muscles yet prefer not to remove any extra skin, then the endoscopic tummy tuck is the perfect solution. This process involves making minimal incisions near the belly button and pubic area to insert a miniature camera and surgical instruments.

Mini Tummy Tuck

A mini tummy tuck is ideal if you only need to get rid of loose skin in the lower abdomen. This procedure is much simpler and less invasive than a full tummy tuck.

Reverse Tummy Tuck

The reverse tummy tuck is a special technique designed to help remove skin laxity and soft tissue that are located principally above the belly button. Most people who look for abdominal contouring or a tummy tuck tend to have their problem areas beneath the navel, but there’s also a small group of individuals where this isn’t the case. The reverse tummy tuck can provide you with an effective solution.

Circumferential Tummy Tuck

A lower body lift or circumferential tummy tuck is the ideal solution if you have significant laxity of the skin and soft tissue in your abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. This procedure removes excess skin from around the stomach all the way down to just below your hips and up into your back and upper buttock area.

Revision Tummy Tuck

If you’ve had a previous tummy tuck and are unsatisfied with the results, you may consider getting a revision. This procedure allows surgeons to correct issues that have developed since your initial surgery, such as asymmetry or excessive skin laxity.
