Body shape surgery

Body shape surgery

Attaining harmony with one’s body helps improve self-esteem and relationships with others. Body shape surgery includes several procedures, which aim to change bodily morphological features. In fact, it provides for innovative techniques and procedures to remove excess skin and fatty tissue, restore body contour, proportion, and tone.

Difference between body shape and unlike reconstructive surgery

Surgery for body shape is primarily concerned with correcting and improving physical appearance by eliminating or reducing certain aesthetic imperfections or features that people perceive as defects in their bodies. Unlike reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery intervenes outside of any context of disease to correct or improve defects that are not pathological but that, while not essential to a person’s overall health, nevertheless play an important role in the patient’s psychology and social relationship life.

Benefits of surgery to change body shape

Thus, the benefits that change body shape surgery causes to our bodies are not only at the physical or physiological level, but also at the level of self-esteem and confidence, alleviating fears and discomforts caused by a physical defect with which one can no longer live peacefully

Tummy tuck

Abdominoplasty, also known as tummy tuck is body shaping plastic surgery  that involves the removal of excess adipose tissue (fat) and skin from the upper and lower abdomen and hips, and allows the toning of muscles and flattening of the entire abdominal wall (flat stomach). Tummy tuck is the ideal procedure to improve the appearance of a sagging or prominent abdomen, eliminate imperfections caused by pregnancy, localized fat accumulation, and laxity of the abdominal muscles.

When can use Tummy tuck?

For small pockets of excess fat, there are alternative options to traditional surgical methods. These less invasive procedures, like abdominal liposuction or liposculpture, can still achieve impressive results depending on the target area. In situations where the fat is concentrated solely below the naval, a mini abdominoplasty may suffice.

Full abdominoplasty and circumferential abdominoplasty

When there is an excess of fat and loose skin in the upper abdomen and hips, a full abdominoplasty may be necessary. In certain cases, this procedure may also be combined with liposuction for optimal results. If fat also occurs in the dorsal area (external cases), circumferential abdominoplasty will be used.


Liposuction is one of the most requested procedures in body shaping surgery, by both men and women. Liposuction consists, as the term itself implies, in ‘suctioning fat cells, that is, fat from the subcutaneous tissue.

Slimming after liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that therefore serves to shape the body and not to slim down. Slimming of course after liposuction surgery will be an inevitable consequence, but it is a modest slimming that occurs with the loss of 1 to 3 pounds and therefore cannot be conceived of as slimming surgery.

Body shaping surgery

Liposuction should be conceived of as body shaping surgery because through the removal of fat in certain areas we can give that proper shape and contour to the body as a whole.

Where the difficulty of liposuction lies?

Liposuction surgery may seem quite simple and trivial, technically speaking, but the difficulty of this procedure lies in its outcome, in knowing how to identify the right suction plan and the correct amount of fat to be suctioned, so as not to incur embarrassing aesthetically unacceptable results.

BBL : Brazilian Butt Lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that reshapes the buttocks with autologous fat from other parts of the body.

What are the risks after a bbl surgery

Immediately after bbl surgery body shape, bruising and swelling may appear in the areas where liposuction was performed.

What is the period to achieve the result?

Swelling tends to improve in 6 to 8 weeks, but the inflammation associated with liposuction can last for several months. The final result is usually achieved after 6 months.

How the body interaction after a bbl surgery?

About 60 percent of the injected fat is expected to be retained; instead, the remainder will be reabsorbed and eliminated naturally by the body. The injected fat cells will behave like all other fat cells in the body and will be liable to weight changes. For lasting results, try to maintain a stable weight and avoid gaining and losing weight.

Body lift

What is a body lift?

Body lift is a challenging procedure, not only because of its duration but also because of postoperative recovery; it consists of the removal of excess skin or skin-adipose that has accumulated on the flanks and lateral aspect of the thighs and the lifting and filling of the buttocks.

Where the residual scar located?

The residual scar is located posteriorly just above the buttocks, starting at the upper end of the intergluteal line, and extending laterally at the level of the iliac crest and then fading toward the groin; however, it is generally well covered by undergarments and bathing suit.

Buttocks Augmentation

Buttock augmentation is the procedure that involves augmentation and remodeling of the butt. For a permanent and lasting augmentation, the best solution is the insertion of implants.

How does the procedure work?

Butt implants are placed under the muscle in such a way that they do not look unnatural and artificial both to the eye and to the touch. The technique involves a small incision at the level of the gluteal sulcus that will be invisible, a disconnection of the planes, and the creation of the prosthetic pocket.


In the context of the insertion of implants, it is also possible to perform reshaping of the hips and thighs, which is performed by liposculpture. This second procedure enhances the result by reshaping the gluteal contour.

Mommy Makeover

What is mommy makeover?

The mommy makeover refers to a series of simultaneous surgical procedures aimed at restoring a woman who has had one or more pregnancies to her figure pre-pregnancy.

The changes after pregnancy

Many women after pregnancy are struggling with profound changes in their bodies, and sometimes attention to diet and physical activity are not enough to regain the desired body shape. The areas of the body most affected by this phenomenon are: the abdomen, with the appearance of stretch marks and loss of muscle tone; the breasts, which may lose volume, appear less firm and even change their position; and areas of the body where fatty deposits have accumulated.
