What is body contouring?
Imagine your figure looking fit, taut, and sculpted, free from excess fat or saggy, aging skin. Body contouring is a customized surgical procedure to resolve body conditions that are less than ideal. Dr. Brian Shafa brings an exceptional level of surgical talent to body reshaping surgeries, including:
Women and men struggle with abdominal fat, a bulging tummy, or excess skin and tissue. These issues become just a memory after a custom abdominoplasty from Dr. Shafa. He employs the most advanced surgical techniques to achieve superior results. Excess fat, skin, and most stretch marks can become a thing of the past. The underlying muscle structure is tightened to create a firm, sculpted abdomen that looks attractive in even the tightest garments.
If you feel your buttocks are too small, unbalanced, flat, or saggy, a Brazilian butt lift, or BBL, may be the ideal procedure for you. The beauty of this treatment is that it does more than enhance your derrière. As a BBL involves transferring natural fat, the harvest of healthy fat cells will slim your waist or thighs for a more attractive figure. The fat cells transferred to create a rounded, lifted effect become part of your buttocks for the long term.
If you are embarrassed to be living with flabby, loose upper arms, you don’t have to accept your fate. Dr. Shafa performs custom arm lift surgeries to restore a youthful, firm look to your upper arms. The procedure involves removing excess fat, tissue, and skin, and tightening your skin around your muscle structure. Imagine wearing sleeveless tops or dresses with utter confidence! You deserve to feel confident about your look, and we can help.
Over time, your thighs can lose that attractive, youthful look, store excess fat, and leave folds of skin that you feel obligated to hide. Rather than suffering from embarrassment, or avoiding activities or clothing that will reveal your problem, why not have the firm, sculpted thighs you want? A thigh lift can restore the look of your inner or outer thighs or both. This procedure may be needed after a dramatic loss of weight, whether through diet and exercise or bariatric surgery.
Full body contouring
If you have achieved a dramatic weight loss with bariatric surgery or diet, you may be left with a large quantity of excess skin and tissue. To enjoy the full results of your accomplishment, you may need to undergo full-body contouring to achieve the firm, fit, taut body you want. This custom surgery may involve a tummy tuck, thigh lift, arm lift, and breast lift. The results can be life-changing.
Liposuction is one of the most effective and popular body sculpting techniques on the market and can be performed in combination with a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, or body lift. Some clients, however, are candidates for liposuction performed by itself as a standalone procedure to trim unsightly bulges in the torso. During the procedure, a small, slender tube called a cannula is inserted through a minute incision at the treatment site. Excess fat is then suctioned out of the body through the cannula, resulting in a shapelier physique. The fat is either discarded, or it can be stored for use in a future fat grafting treatment, such as a natural breast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift. Lipo is performed under general anesthesia or IV sedation and it typically takes about 2 hours to complete.
The mommy makeover is a combination body contouring option for moms who want to revitalize their figures after childbirth. Pregnancy can take a toll on multiple areas of the body, including the breasts, the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, waist, and labia. By combining cosmetic procedures into one powerful, all-encompassing solution, the mommy makeover can save you both recovery time and money. Each mommy makeover is customized to the client’s unique wishes and anatomy and may include a tummy tuck, breast enlargement, breast reduction, breast lift, buttock lift, liposuction, and labiaplasty. In addition, the client may opt to undergo facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers and injectables, which can help greatly reduce the signs of aging in the forehead, lips, and eye areas.
If you lack definition in certain areas of the torso despite plenty of effort at the gym, you might consider body implants as a viable treatment to achieve your cosmetic goals. Factors such as aging and poor genes can result in a silhouette that is disproportionate, as well as lowered self-confidence. With body implants, you can create the appearance that you desire. Body implants are made from specially formulated silicone that is compatible with human tissue. They can help sculpt the chest, biceps, shoulders, calves and buttocks, enhancing your physique and boosting your self-image. Additionally, body implants are a great option if you suffer from conditions such as Spina Bifida, Marfan’s Syndrome or Poland Syndrome, as they can create a balanced, pleasing aesthetic without looking unnatural.
