3 Minute Read: 

Coming out of the emotionally charged pandemic period, many men and women have experienced undesired weight gain. This trend doesn’t come as a surprise as routines were disrupted, pushing people into adopting more sedentary lifestyles and poor dietary choices.

That, coupled with unprecedented stress, temporary closing, and restrictions of gyms and other health clubs, made many individuals inadvertently pile on excess weight, losing definition in their body contours.

Now, as we’re starting to get back into the healthy swing of things, you may be more intentional in restoring a tighter and fitter physique. Despite exercising and following a healthy diet, chances are you have areas of unwanted fat, loose skin, and other cosmetic concerns that remain unresponsive. 

With targeted body contouring procedures, you can finally get the smooth, toned contour you desire and create a more appealing overall shape.

What Are Common Body Contouring Surgeries?

Some of the most widely sought body contouring treatments include:

Tummy Tuck 

A tummy tuck is an incredibly popular cosmetic surgical procedure that effectively addresses abdominal muscle separation, excess fat, and loose skin in the mid-section area to reveal a firmer, flatter, sleeker profile.


Liposuction eliminates unwanted fat from a variety of locations around your body, including your belly, flanks, upper arms, thighs, and under your chin. The technique removes the largest amount of fat compared to other fat reduction treatments.

Arm Lift

An arm lift is often performed to address excess skin and fatty tissue that rests in the upper arms. The procedure reshapes the upper arms to create more firm, toned, aesthetically pleasing contours.

Breast Lift

The breast lift procedure enhances your silhouette by removing excess breast skin and elevating the breast tissue.

Breast Reduction  

Individuals with overly large, heavy breasts can benefit from removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve an ideal breast size.

Lower Body Lift 

A lower body lift is designed to reduce extra fat and sagging skin to enhance the appearance of the region from the midsection to the upper thighs.

What Is Right for Me?

During your initial body contouring consultation, Dr. Hand will discuss your concerns and goals, explain available options, and customize a unique body contouring treatment plan that brings you closer to your aesthetic goals. Depending on your situation, you may need a combination of procedures.

If you’re considering any of the procedures, it’s important to note that they aren’t a replacement for diet and exercise. Suitable candidates should already be at their ideal body weight or close to doing so to achieve optimal and long-lasting results. Significant weight fluctuations after the procedure(s) could diminish your beautiful contouring results.
