A lower body lift specifically removes the excessive hanging tissue from abdomen, flanks, buttocks, outer thighs,and lower back areas and to tighten muscles of the abdominal wall. Upper body lift is done to remove the similar tissue in the upper back. There are several different methods of performing these procedures depending on technique and expertise of the plastic surgeon.

Medical evaluation including lab and radiological investigation should be performed where necessary in all patients considering the body contouring procedures.

Women who have lost a significant amount of weight and suffer from excessive skin laxity may benefit from a post-bariatric procedure. In general, it is best to delay body contouring until a stable weight has been reached for 6 months, which generally corresponds to about 1 year after bypass or banding surgery. Because different areas of the body may respond differently to massive weight loss, a variety of surgical procedures may be needed in order to maximize the results. A consultation with one of our surgeons will allow us to formulate a plan with you to reach your post weight loss goals.

A medial (inner) thigh lift is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the medial thighs. A medial thigh lift is not a surgical treatment for being overweight. Obese individuals who intend to lose weight should postpone all forms of body contouring surgery until they have reached a stable weight.

Also called suction-assisted lipectomy, this is a surgical procedure performed by using a hollow metal surgical instrument known as a cannula which is attached to a vacuum source, that provides suction needed to remove the fatty tissue. In some situations, a special cannula may be used that emits ultrasonic energy, laser energy, or a jet of water, to break down fatty deposits. Depending on your needs, your surgeon may recommend suction- assisted lipectomy alone, or in combination with another technique.Liposuction may be performed under local, sedation, or general anaesthesia.Tumescent liposuction technique involves the infiltration of fluid containing dilute local anaesthetic and epinephrine into areas of fatty deposits. This technique can reduce discomfort at the time of surgery, blood loss, and post- operative bruising. Compression support garments and dressings are worn to
control swelling and promote healing.

Labiaplasty is offered to women with excessive, redundant labia who suffer from unsightly contour lines and physical discomfort. Such women report pinching or chafing when sitting or walking, hindrance during intercourse, and difficulty maintaining hygiene during menses or after defecation. This includes reduction in size of the labia minora. The labia minora are the bands of tissue on either side of the vagina that are directly inside the labia majora. These two flaps of skin extend down from the clitoris. Hormonal changes in the body brought on by pregnancy, puberty, menopause and age, enlarge and darken the color of these tissues. Many women find these changes particularly disturbing as they may be obvious to them and their sexual partners. Labiaplasty is one of the most common genital rejuvenation procedures performed. The aim of the surgery is to reduce the labia minora and not to totally remove them.
