How to Choose The Right Body Contouring Procedure For Your Needs

Are you considering having a body contouring procedure? From abdominoplasty to liposuction and a brachioplasty, here’s how to decide which option will best suit your aesthetic and health needs.

Excess or sagging skin/fat can be caused by a number of factors, but it results primarily from age and significant weight loss. If you do have excess skin that is causing a lack of satisfaction with your body image, then surgical body contouring procedures such as liposuction, abdominoplasty, or brachioplasty (arm lift), can help resolve your concerns.

At our Edmonton clinic, our customized body contouring surgeries can be used to address sagging skin in many areas of the body, including:

  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Breasts
  • Arms

3 Body Contouring Options: Which Is Right For You?

If you are not completely satisfied with your appearance, then you may be considering a body contouring procedure, such as an abdominoplasty or liposuction.

These cosmetic treatments offer a long-lasting way to change your body profile by sculpting and trimming away isolated areas of stubborn fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

However, the type of procedure that is right for you will depend on several factors, including your:

  • Aesthetic Goals
  • Skin condition
  • Schedule and how much time you can take for recovery
  • General health

During a consultation, your plastic surgeon will discuss all your options with you, and these may include:

1. Liposuction

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure used to remove unwanted body fat. It involves sucking out small areas of localized fat that are difficult to lose through exercise and a healthy diet.

It is often carried out on areas of the body where deposits of fat tend to collect including:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

The aim of liposuction is to alter a patient’s body shape and the results are generally very long lasting, as long as the patient maintains a healthy lifestyle. It works BEST for patients WITHIN 30% of their ideal weight.


2. Brachioplasty

A brachioplasty, also referred to as an arm lift, is designed to smoothen and tighten skin on your upper arms, removing stubborn areas of fat that may have developed due to age or weight loss. You may want to consider a brachioplasty if:

  • You have loose skin and unwanted fatty deposits on your upper arms
  • Regular diet and exercise are ineffective at tackling these fat deposits
  • You have bat wings and want to improve the tone and shape of your arms
  • You feel self-conscious about your arms and it’s affecting your daily life

For many of the patients at our Edmonton clinic, a brachioplasty not only helps improve the appearance of your upper arms, but it also provides a much needed boost to your self esteem.


3. Medial Thigh Lift

A medial thigh lift, or thigh reduction, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to tighten sagging muscles and remove excess skin in the thigh area, improving the contour of the lower body. It is recommended for patients who cannot achieve their desired body even with fitness and weight loss efforts.

Some of the benefits of a medial thigh lift include:

  • Adds to the success of your weight loss and gives you smooth thighs
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Relieves rashes on the undersurface of thighs
  • Removes the cellulite look of thighs
