falls under the body contouring solution?

Following are the procedures that come under the Body Contouring Solution: 

Procedures for the Upper Body:

  1. Upper Body Lift: Upper body lift is a full-fledged cosmetic surgery that involves removing excess skin from the chest (in case of male patients) and breast ( in case of female patients), removing stubborn fat rolls on the back and removing residual excess skin and fat from the arms. The upper body lift not only removes the excess skin and fat but also reshapes the upper torso and arms to look proportionate to the rest of the body. The skin post-surgery becomes toned and tight. 
  2. Arm Lift:  Brachioplasty/arm lift is a surgery that targets the excess skin from the armpit to the elbow and aims at eliminating the ‘bat-wing’ appearance. 
  3. Breast Lift:  Breast lift helps in changing the shape of the breasts by literally lifting them up to a higher position and restoring their contour and elevation. 
  4. Male Breast Reduction: Male breast reduction/gynecomastia surgery involves removing excess breast tissue and skin from the patient’s chest. It also makes the chest look more contoured and masculine. 

Procedures for the Lower Body:

  1. Lower Body Lift: This surgery involves the contouring and re-shaping of the lower half of the body. It will correct the excess skin problem of the thighs, buttocks along with a tummy tuck to give the lower body a tight and even appearance.
  2. Thigh Lift: A thigh lift involves slimming down the thighs by getting rid of the fat and the sagging skin. The excess fat is removed from the inner as well as outer thighs to ensure even removal of fat.
  3. Panniculectomy: A panniculectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the pannus — excess skin and tissue from the lower abdomen. It can be performed along with tummy tuck to give the lower abdomen a flat look. 
  4. Tummy Tuck: a tummy tuck surgery is a safe and effective surgery which aims at tightening the abdominal muscles, removing the stretch marks and contouring the abdominal area to give a pleasing, shapely appearance.
  5. Liposuction: Liposuction is a plastic surgery which can help you in achieving a toned and contoured body by getting rid of the excessive fat from localized areas like buttocks, thighs, flanks, abdominal area and chest. 

Dr Santosh Bhatia, a Board-certified Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, recommends the complete Body Contouring package to patients only after closely examining them. Depending on the unique case of every individual the combination of procedures that may be required for them can be completely different from one another. Some may require a tummy tuck and arm lift, some may need a breast lift, thigh lift and liposuction etc. Every patient may need a different permutation and combination of the solution. This decision cannot be taken without a personal evaluation by Dr Santosh Bhatia at Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Mumbai.
