There are a lot of factors that can contribute to poor-body contour. Different plastic surgery procedures can target different concerns and are sometimes combined for optimal results! If you’re feeling unhappy and lacking confidence due to sagging, you might consider one of these contouring procedures to slim your figure.


Liposuction is a very popular procedure due to its promise to remove stubborn fat. Stubborn fat is different from regular fat because it can be very difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. Pockets of stubborn fat can be present on virtually any part of the body, but luckily, liposuction can be used almost anywhere as well! So, if you suffer from stubborn fat in the abdominal, hips, thighs, buttocks, back, upper arms, or under the chin, you might consider liposuction. The procedure can target a large area and multiple areas at once for optimal contouring. It can also easily be added to another procedure for enhanced results.

Tummy Tuck

While liposuction is great for stubborn fat, it can sometimes worsen the appearance of excess skin and tissue. If you already have lax skin that hangs in the abdominal area, you might consider a tummy tuck procedure. The procedure can still remove stubborn fat, but also takes care of excess skin while tightening the underlying tissue and muscles.

Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy can take a toll on many areas of the body including the midsection and breasts. If you have sagging skin, breast volume loss, and stubborn fat due to pregnancy and childbirth, a mommy makeover might be best to target all your areas of concern at once! The highly customizable procedure puts together the best contouring methods for your concerns and often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast lift, and breast augmentation to restore your pre-pregnancy figure.


While a surgical procedure can give you significant results, it might not be necessary if your loose tissue isn’t severe, or if you’re just not ready for surgery and downtime. BodyTite requires no anesthesia, needles, or incisions and relies instead on radiofrequency energy to lift and tighten the body. It can be used to treat the stomach, arms, chest, knees, and thighs.
