Body Contouring Treatments That Could Give You A Lifted, Tightened, And Slimmer Look

Body contouring is one or more cosmetic procedures that sculpt your body into your desired shape. You might have pockets of fat on your hips or excess skin on your abdomen after weight loss. Body contouring procedures can remove fat and tighten skin to improve your shape. Some procedures require surgery and others don't. A cosmetic doctor can help you select the right body contouring treatments for your situation. Here are a few to choose from.


Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from areas of your body such as under your arms, on your hips, and across your belly. You'll get immediate results from liposuction once you've gone through your recovery and the swelling has gone down.

Liposuction is sometimes given along with lasers or ultrasound treatments. These additional treatments can accomplish the same results with less aggressive treatment. Plus, lasers and ultrasound treatments are used to tighten skin, so your skin may tighten and reduce the risk of having loose skin after your liposuction.

PDO Thread Lifts

PDO threads are like suture threads that are strong enough to hold tissues together, but they dissolve over time. The threads are inserted under your skin to lift your face and neck so you look like you've had a facelift without surgery. PDO threads can also be used to lift your buttocks. They might be combined with fillers in the buttocks to give you a more shapely and lifted appearance. The threads slowly dissolve, but they can be replaced so you can maintain your lifted look.

You could also have your buttocks surgically lifted, or have your waist reduced to give the illusion of having a more shapely figure in your buttocks area. However, PDO threads only require punctures that heal quickly and not incisions, so you may prefer a non-surgical approach to giving your buttocks a lifted look.

Fat Freezing

Fat freezing is a popular form of body contouring because it's a quick procedure that requires no incision to eliminate fat. However, the results aren't instant. The cold temperature freezes and kills fat cells, and then the cells are absorbed and removed from your body over time. It could be a few months and a few treatments before you see your final shape.

You can have fat frozen on just about any body area where you need to eliminate fat and create a sculpted appearance. That could be your chin, underarms, back, hips, or stomach. There is no downtime and no recovery needed after this body contouring treatment.
