Body contouring is a term that describes several procedures performed in one or several settings, as a single procedure or in combination, to improve the shape of the torso (breast, abdomen, back, buttocks), arms, and legs.
Typically, the term is applied to procedures performed following massive weight loss (either after weight reduction surgery or non-surgical, i.e. with diet and exercises).
Body contouring procedures include:
- Breast surgery (augmentation, i.e. enlargement), breast lift, sometimes breast reduction
- Brachioplasty (arm lift)
- Upper body lift
- Abdominoplasty (including standard abdominoplasty, extended abdominoplasty, circumferential or "belt" abdominoplasty, fleur-de lis abdominoplasty)
- Lower body lift
- Thigh lift
Due to safety concerns, these procedures are frequently performed in stages (to maintain safe limits of time under anesthesia, blood loss etc.).
