The most popular forms of body contouring surgery
When it comes to body contouring surgery, there are several variations of surgical treatment that are available to patients. Which is most suitable for you is determined during a consultation with a plastic surgeon that can offer you personalised advice.
Body contouring surgery itself is an umbrella term used to describe procedures that are designed to change the contours and shape of one or more areas of the body.
Facial contouring procedures also exist but these are different to the ones offered as part of body contouring surgery.
Whether the patient chooses to undergo one treatment to a specific area, or they wish to undergo multiple treatments to multiple areas, it is important to decide which procedure is most suitable.
The mummy makeover
The mummy makeover is an umbrella term that is used to describe a collection of procedures with the aim of improving the appearance of the abdomen and breasts. In most cases this includes a breast uplift of some kind, which may or may not involve silicone breast implants.
Alongside a breast rejuvenation procedure, a second body contouring procedure will also be used to improve the overall aesthetic of the body. For women who have had children this is most commonly the abdomen, in the form of tummy tuck surgery.
Lower body lifting
For some patients the lower body is the area they wish to focus on. This is usually regarding two areas: the buttocks and the thighs.
A thigh lift is specifically designed to recontour the upper legs. This involves skin being removed via an incision to the inner thigh.
A buttock lift is similar in nature although it is obviously designed to lift and reshape the buttocks rather than the size. However, it is not uncommon for both procedures to be performed in unison.
Upper body lifting
And upper body lift can include procedures such as brachioplasty which is designed to slim-line the upper arm area.
This is an ideal type of body contouring surgery for patients who wish to address concerns such as bingo wings, and is often sort have to head extreme weight loss or due to the natural ageing process.
An incision is nice along the dinner on and excess skin before the wound is closed.
