Body contouring is surgery to improve the shape or contour of a person’s body. Liposuctions, tummy tuck in etc. are the methods for body contouring. It remains best suited for small, isolated deposits of fat that have only little extra skin.

For those that have lost a tremendous amount of weight, either naturally, or through gastric bypass surgery, these individuals can still possess loose hanging skin on their bodies. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting and exercise will remove this excess skin. Body contouring, also called a body lift, offers a surgical solution. This is a procedure where excess skin is removed throughout the body.
