Most requested body contouring procedures explained
Female patients often visit Mr Ross seeking body contouring procedures. These are surgical procedures designed to rejuvenate the body by reshaping or contouring a specific area.
There are various types of body contouring surgeries that can help women especially. If pregnancy or weight loss has affected the way a certain part of the body looks, surgery may be a way to improve the issue.
Here we have six of the most requested body reshaping procedures requested by women. You can read more detail about each of them on the “Body” treatment pages.
– Tummy tuck
A tummy tuck is also known as an abdominoplasty. This is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and tighten and tone the appearance of the tummy. There are several types of abdominoplasty including the mini tummy tuck (for the lower abdomen only) and the full tummy tuck (for the whole mid section).
– Fat removal
Fat removal and liposuction are body contouring procedures that take unwanted fat from the body. They can be used alone or as part of a body rejuvenation programme with surgical procedures like the tummy tuck. Mr Ross uses Body-jet fat removal which is water-assisted, making it less traumatic to the surrounding tissues.
– Fat transfer
If you need to move fat from one area to another, for example the waist to hips, fat transfer could be the best option. It’s body reshaping without the need for silicone implants or foreign substances, making it popular with those seeking natural results.
– Arm lift
Brachioplasty surgery is designed to reshape the upper arms. Known as an arm lift, this procedure is ideal for women that have lost a large amount of weight and been left with sagging skin. Also it’s popular with older patients who have arm skin that has lost elasticity due to the ageing process. It usually forms part of body lift surgery too.
– Thigh lift
Like an arm lift, the thigh lift is designed to remove excess skin and lift the overall appearance of the upper legs. It’s popular with women that have lost a substantial amount of weight, and is often combined with other body contouring procedures as part of a full body lift.
– Mummy makeover
The mummy makeover involves two or more surgical procedures. In most cases this is a breast rejuvenation procedure and a body contouring surgery. For example, a breast uplift and a tummy tuck can be undertaken at the same time to lift the breasts and tighten the skin of the abdomen.
All patients are different and what works for one will not be suitable for another. You’re best to book a consultation with Mr Ross to determine whether any of the body contouring procedures above are suitable for you.
